On Stray emu meets untimely death near Orfordville
Anyone with common sense can see the officer couldn't put the emu in the squad car and then go find the owner. He did the right thing to restrain the emu to keep it off the road. I am sure he went looking for an owner at a nearby residence, and returned. He didn't kill the emu, the emu did it itself. It is the "owners" responsibility to keep their animals safe, so as for blaming the RCSD (thinking they will replace the expensive bird)I am sure the county isn't liable. But if the owners emu damages a vehicle if someone hit the emu, they would have to pay for the damages and/or injuries to the party that hit the emu in the roadway. So the officer was doing the right thing by doing his best to keep "the people" safe in Rock county.
On The Talk.
Sounds excellent on paper, but I've had kids and now dealing with grandchildren that are teens. What do you do in a split family where on parent says no and the other allows it at their house? What about going to the friends home, and those parents let the children drink at their home where it is safe and the parent is drinking with them so they are safe? My opinion is say no, talk responsibility, don't get upset when they tell you about it, but they will be out there trying it and doing it anyway. The only "hope" I see is get your kids interested in something like clubs, church, teams early on where they "might" not try it either because they are too busy to do it or they have an interest other than sitting with a group of friends with nothing to do.
On Hazardous weather on its way
Be careful going outside, the sidewalks are kind of slippery 8 a.m.
On Millie's Delavan restaurant is closing its doors
Only visited there a couple times, as I don't live in the area, but you could tell it was a special place for families and friends to go. Sorry to see a small business close. Good luck to the owners. Maybe someone will step forward and buy it.
On Walker to propose GPS monitoring, DNA collection
Sounds to me he would be tracking the "guilty". I'm sure there are many people who disagree, but I think it is a good thing to do. Please don't shoot me for having an opinion, crazy people scare me! LOL
On Janesville doctor writes about faith
No seeds planted here. I choose to be a believer, and your rantings can't do anything about it. My first comment was I do not care what anyone else believes but I do believe. If that makes me selfish so be it. I don't have all the answers, but apparently you non-believers do.
Why would you even read this news article? It seems so beneath you? I thought it was a good positive article for the gazette to write. Go ahead and call us names, for we know where we are going. Did you know the devil is real too? He is posting on here!
Interesting how some do have all the answers all the while they are telling the believers why we shouldn't. I, like others feel nothing but bitterness from gazettefan. We are saying we do not have all the answers. Thank you to gazettefan for enlightning us the past few days with your reason for suffering children. It is obivous to me, you put the blame on those that think differently than you, so it seems you are innocent in taking care of anyone but yourself. So you take care of yourself and let us take care of ourselves, and the children are then responsible for taking care of themselves, and you can sleep at night. I have no doubt in my mind who you are.
Maybe I should put it another way: In the words of Ben Stein, I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew (Ben Stein), and I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, the America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.... Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and aren't allowed to worship God as we understand him? I guess that's a sign I'm getting old. In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Marray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in schools and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school...The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK, Then Dr. Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (he son committed suicide). Figured he was an expert and we said OK (we won't spank them when naughty). Now we ask ourselves why our children have no consciene, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates and themselves. And then people turn around and blame God because he didn't stop them. When you turn your back on God why should he stop the hate, we reap what we sow. Funny how easy it is to trash God and not look at yourself for an answer. Ben Stein/CBS Sunday morning commentary.
Good article and best luck to Dr. Ragotzy.
