On Massive oak will be casualty of 'progress' on Highway 26
Sad... I've admired that tree for decades. In the summer, those massive branches nearly brush the ground with its foliage. The most majestic Oak I've ever seen. I will miss enjoying its beauty. To be replaced by concrete... sad, just sad.
On Once Highway 26 is routed around town, will Milton turn into Bypass-ville?
Just taking the traffic conjestion out of the intersection at Hwy 26 and Cty Hwy N is worth it. So many people have died at that intersection. The volume of "pass through" traffic has increased so much in the past 15 years that it is a dangerous stretch between Milton and Fort.
I am disgusted though, to see the home owners who bought beautiful land for the scenery and built homes in a rural setting, only to have the bypass in their front yards. This is sad. I honestly think the Gov't should have taken this into concideration, and compensated these homeowners, but this is progress. I'm not happy about it, but we needed to have the heavy truck traffic taken off Hwy 26 from Milton to Fort.
On Rock River approaches major flood stage
I drive over the river everyday in Newville. Yes, the water is rising and is flooding homes close to the river banks. Here we go again...
The worst is yet to be seen, with the upcoming rainy forecast.
On Stray emu meets untimely death near Orfordville

On SSM, Dean move toward merger
Me too, Wislady. I will NEVER go back to Mercy!
On Child’s papal embrace serves as a lesson in love
gazettefan... you DO NOT know that. I am not catholic, but I guarantee you he knows who he hugged.
For all you faithless... I feel sorry for you.
The Pope does NOT live like a king by the way. And the previous Pope who actually retired is in a modest dwelling to just reflect and pray, till he succumbs to death, to meet his heavenly Father...
Good grief, its a stupid bird... the owner neglected the safety of this animal. I'm just thankful it did not cause an accident.
And this is news?
On Opposition to bill on food stamps for junk food
Honestly, I do not care what they spend their food stamps on. Its not costing ME any more of MY money to fund this program if someone buys 20 bags of chips vs carrots and celery. The problem starts with the eligility for food stamps.
Why should we "monitor" or insist someone buy chicken vs wasting the ENTIRE check for the month on 3 filet minion steaks? Wow, really? That money only goes so far... If someone is that ignorant and wants to blow ALL my tax funded check on hershey bars, I don't care.
Give it up... I am so sick and tired of people worrying about everyone ELSE'S problems. Glass houses - ya know?
On Janesville gets state grant to move business away from river
This company has been in business for 41 years so the location had been ideal for decades. One - 100 year flood has put their livelihood in jeopardy. Why would we not want to help them survive and thrive at another location? I support this. Seriously, how many locally owned companies have survived in Rock County through this mess of an economy, for this long?
On Gouda enough! State cheese wins
