On City receives second brownfields grant
A brownfield can be an abandoned industrial or commercial facility, such as gas station or dry cleaner, contaminated or perceived to be contaminated. If this grant was for redevelopment of "brownfield" areas, how could the money have been used to purchase the old Plaza furniture building, which was neither abandoned, or contaminated? A building which I still say the city overpaid for, seeing as the city of Janesville GAVE that to Siker's (yes that's who owned Plaza) years back, he had closed that store and when he found out the city wanted it, he reopened it to drive up the price he wanted for it.
On SSM, Dean move toward merger

On What does city need in its next city manager?
No kids involved in a sport that would require our city to spend money it DOESN'T have to build or completely remodel something the city has owned already for many years! IE: The Janesville Ice Arena money pit that only started after Mr. Levitt came to town. Now we've spent all that money and he and his hockey kids are leaving. Hope Simi Valley California already has an up to date facility for them when they arrive......Thanks for stopping by Eric Levitt, I'm sure the contractors that you hired for the Ice Arena project appreciated it!
On What's going on here? Coyote decoys guarding Traxler Park
Not sure if it'll work on the geese, but I haven't seen any roadrunners ever since they were put in. Oddly enough though, I have seen an Acme delivery truck circling the park lately......
On Janesville School District expels student for threatening others
Keep kicking them out, you'll get the charter schools filled in no time, and that after all is the goal now, that way they can justify the spending on them......
On Military jets pulling out of Wisconsin air show
We throw parties in the White House, but won't let school children tour. We send foreign aide to terrorists, but try to make the sequester "as painful as possible" on our own citizens. American citizens are killed or detained with no due process and enemy foreign combatants get released or live in a poor man's paradise called Gitmo.Now think about that for just one minute, let it sink in, and then decide what you want to do about it.....
On Janesville's new trash-collection-system kickoff approaches
When they (the city of Janesville public works employee) bust one of these new carts, and you know they will, who buys the replacement cart? We're already paying to have our trash collected, so just wondering if there will be more fees that will go along with this that have not been disclosed as of yet. And these new carts will eventually need to be replaced over a period of time, so lets get this out in the air now.
On Local airport tower to close
What is this budget you speak of Kilgore? Budgets, we don't need no stinking budgets! *We'll see if it actually becomes official this year that the Democrats are able to actually pass a budget, something that has failed to happen ever since President Obama took office, way back in Jan. of 2009, something that by the way is a requirement to do every year by law, (last years budget submitted by our President failed to garner one vote, NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THEM APPROVED OF HIS IDEOLOGY, not even from his own party!) That speaks volumes about his leadership, or more so lack there of, I'd have to say. But then again our constitution means very little to our Emperor. If they are indeed actually looking for ways to come up with $600 Million, for starters sending Egypt $250 Million is the first step in the WRONG direction. Closing air traffic control towers, and ending White House tours for school children. Now that's how you come up with money needed to fund the countries day to day operations I guess these days.....
Kilgore, Ahh yes, you have hit the nail on the head there my friend, and when that happens it will cost us taxpayers more than double to run those airports, with the same level of service!I wonder if we can find out if that great big airport out in Pennsylvania (That goes unused, but a former politician had built in his name) is still running at full staff? I am going to have to do some digging on this one. Thank you for pointing out what I thought was just my theory in this whole mess upcoming on the air traffic controller situation Kilgore, but you know you are 100% right on this one...... When are we the people going to demand our country back, and to remind the political servants that they indeed work for us? *It's becoming more and more apparent that Washingtons two sides have absolutely no interest in working together, they are more interested in trying to make the other side out to be the bad guys, so to speak, and when someone dies in an airplane crash over this, you know neither side will be willing to step up and take the blame.
Oh Homer, if only that were true.....:)
I am in utter disbelief that our Federal Government is willing to put safety behind politics, IE: We can no longer afford to have air traffic controllers in our airports, but we have this big pile of cash we need to send to Egypt! We can no longer afford airport safety across our country, but we have a couple million to fund snacks on trains! I have to wonder, is it just me, or is there something seriously wrong here???
This whole budget sequestration is nothing more than politics people, WAKE UP!
