On Five things to know about Janesville's new trash collection system
other towns had you keep your recycle bins in case you had more then what the bin would hold .we use our s for pop can stretch a plastic bag over it . sometimes we use it to pick up sticks in the yard . our bins have only tipped over once in all the years we ve had these , but so didnt alot of trees that day .
On Fewer get insurance through employer in Wisconsin
this is no surprise , the first thing they do is start cutting benefits , people today want cash not benefit s what they dont realize is when something happens not having benefits can cost them .
On More accountability coming to comments
i would get the paper again if you would make your delivery drivers drive decently . seem they dont know what side of the street they are suppose to be driving on and always going the wrong direction . when we complained to the gazette we were told they were contract drivers and the gazette had no control over them therefore we canceled our paper.
On Walker invites fellow governors for Harley ride
916wi in case you havent noticed we ve been paying for presidential vacation forever , an were not paying for their vacation your paying for their security while their on vacation this is nothing new. but to invite 50 governors to wisconsin then decide they will go on a harley ride , and wisconsin will pay for the training is ridiculous this is something they can use in the future . if they have a license great , if not then they should be paying for their own training . any one who trains people to ride a motorcycle will tell you this is a bad idea , your dont teach someone how to ride a motorcycle and then put them in a group of fifty riders until they are comfortable riding . and how many inexperienced rider s will be in this group?
they are paying for it because it way more important then anything a needy child in wisconsin might need .50 governors at 300.00 or more each what an idiot
On Could shooting be a gun-control tipping point?
mooshoo, and the 25,000 deaths from falling ? and 37000 from poison were just suppose to look the other way ? no one said every one who killed with a gun has a mental problem . but obviously if you take time to plan out a crime like this something is not right . i could own one of these guns and never in a million year s would i do something like this . take away the guns they will make bombs same result. take away the guns and there be less suicides by using a gun but not less suicides. the guns are not the issue . and heres a thought too , all these crimes are committed where guns are not allowed , even in conceal and carry states guns are not allowed in most malls and schools so that right there should tell you something
the truth is there are over 30,000 gun deaths in the us every year. 18000 of them are suicide , some our accidental shootings , some are shooting that were done to protect or prevent someone from committing a crime. so approx less then 12000 are from homicides. meanwhile 25,000 deaths occur from falls , 43,000 from car accident and 37,000 from poison. the only reason the gun one gets so much attention is because of the mass killings you see at one time. what they need to look at is the people that committ these crimes how many times do we have to hear they had mental problem s , were with drawn wheres the help for these people . take away the guns and they will still be out there finding another way to commit crimes like these . quit looking the other way mental health is a serious over looked issue in our country .,
On Why right-to-work will inevitably spread
see alot of posts about how the govt has laws to protect overtime child labor and so on. those laws were put in place because of the unions , you really think they will stay there if the unions no longer exist. i know 3 people in the last 2 years that lost their jobs just because . no valid reason other then they were the longest employee there basically and a new employee would be much cheaper. do people have a right to work with out union s of course , all you have to do is apply to a company that doesnt have a union . you want a good example of what happens without unions , wisconsin has sent out letters to state employees wanting them to submit a list of medications they are taking . they state its legal for them to get this information and other states do it . well my guess is they are going to use this list to get rid of people . lower their insurance cost s by using the medication list to weed out the high risk employees . the county employees no longer get over time based on seniority . if they like sue better then joe guess what joe gets it. these are just two examples of what has happened to employees that they have taken their union rights away . there is more but you get the picture
