On School district warns of door-to-door seller
Most likely this is a group of salespeople that work for a company that preys on young college freshmen who are naive and who don't want to return home for the summer. They promise a fun summer of selling books and meeting other young people. They make them go to a one week sales class and show them how easy it is. They then are expected to arrange their own travel to their destination and find their own lodging for the summer. They buy the books wholesale with their own money and then have to sell them for to pay for gas, lodging, food, and then profit with what is left over.
On Bielema won't recruit Penn St players
BadgerFan1 - You are correct about the difference, but, Bielema should have just kept his mouth shut about cheering for anything that has to do with football at Penn State. Instead he talks about this "brotherhood" crap. "Brotherhood" only promotes keeping things within the so called "circle of trust". Look what the "brotherhood" and "circle of trust" mentality got for Penn State. It helped to create a playground for a pedophile. Football should not be held above the academic institutions that give it place to play. Academic institutions need to take the power back from these types of coaches and athletic directors that talk like this. I don't really know Bielema to be that sort of coach with that kind of power, but, the language he uses leads me to believe that he would value his football program over some things that may be fundamentally right.
It is sad that the NCAA didn't have the guts to suspend the program for a few years. There will still be 6 Saturdays this fall that 106,000 will attend a game at the University that gave a playground to a pedophile. It is not about punishment for the football program. It is about doing what is right for the victims. The NCAA is about $$$. The right thing would have been for the NCAA to suspend the program for a few years, have Penn State honor scholarships for the remaining years of their current players, and allow players to transfer if they desired. Instead, the university will still make money on a football program that was built upon the false ethics of a coach that only look out for his own legacy. -I understand that the content of this post is not exactly related to the story. But after reading the following quote, "I'm going to be their biggest fan for every week of the year for the guys that stay there and stick it through," Bielema said. "My hat's off to the coach and all the players staying strong.” I am disturbed that there will be any fans cheering for any football that occurs in State College.
On Dogs, dead people get election docs from nonprofit
Honorfirst - Relax. This article was not about dogs and dead people voting. The article states "Several election officials said they believed the voter registration systems were secure enough to catch people who might improperly submit the misdirected documents." No need for voter ID laws. Voter ID laws would suppress more eligible voters than stoping ineligible voters.
On 41 Wis. dairy farmers get grants totaling $200K
Wislady - you better hand over your Tea Party membership card if you support this.
On This US summer is 'what global warming looks like'
ozzman - the dust bowl was caused by man. Too much land under cultivation was the reason for the dust bowl. Otherwise it would have been an ordinary run of the mill drought.
On Wisconsin panel approves more concealed carry workers
There is a 16 week backlog at the DPI in processing teacher licenses. This is because there were cuts to the office that processes the license applications. But, I guess since danger is on the way to me and my family it is more important that I get that permit to pack heat. I just didn't know that my me and my family were in more harm today than we were before conceal carry was passed.
On Edgerton schools eyeing public-private partnerships with local industries
So these private businesses want better trained workers for their entry level positions. But, instead of investing in the up front cost to get the technology and infrastucture in place, they are counting on a gov't handout in the form of a taxing referendum to do it for them. Typical private industry looking for corporate welfare.
On Former Texas teacher found guilty of robbing Janesville bank
Would the headline be different if he had a different occupation? "Former Insurance Agent found guilty . . .", "Former Small Business Owner found guilty . . .", "Former Engineer found guilty . . .", "Former Contractor found guilty . . .", "Former Farmer found guilty . . ."Probably not. It is obvious that this guy being a teacher makes this crime even more unacceptable. Good thing that he was only a former teacher because if he was still a teacher he probably would have been armed as well during the robbery.
On Video: Walker explains divide, conquer strategy
The top .1% asking the Gov how he will "work on these unions" really means "how can you make it so I can exploit the great workers in this county so I can become more wealthy?" What motive is there for someone with that much wealth to push for right-to-work legislation? Right-to-work means more profits and, more importantly, more control over the workers.
