On Benghazi redacted
I really hope the repubs go after him full guns ablazin'. Just like they did to Bill Clinton. Did anyone ever notice how good the country ran when all the politicians were fighting each other and leaving the country alone? I think it runs better that way!
OK, Lets stay focused, what focused on a smear campaign. Lets just remember, we do not know the whole truth/story. I long for the time when intelligence could be kept secret. You can not give all information when the military/national security is involved. They admitted to a mistake, lets drop it and move on.
On Milton breaks ground on splash park project
Money pit, very possible since it is free. Is it a nice thing to have, yes. Will Milton become a destination, ROTFLMAO. Milton never has and never will be a destination for tourists. Lets be real, it has been a bedroom community forever. I agree with the parking comment, that area is terrible when kids activities are there. Lack of parking will be a big factor. I do not think this slash park will bring in much revenue to Milton. Families will bring picnic lunches or snacks, and come and enjoy the free water. Speaking of water, will this increase the already high water rates in Milton? Milton want people to visit, yet they will not vacate part of storrs lake drive by the Milton house, an attaction already there. Best of luck to the city, but judging by past history, the attraction will require more money than it is worth.
On New high school possible for Janesville district
I would think that you would FIX the current system. Let’s put the blame on where it should be placed, THE STUDENTS AND THIER PARENTS!!!!!!!! If 30% are ready it shows the knowledge is being taught. Maybe parts of these students are not interested in learning. Let’s all admit that not every student will ever be smart enough to pass the tests, fact of life, there are people out there that are not smart. If society placed value on learning and not being a cool gang wanna be, or pro sports athlete it would be better. My biggest thing is why this coddled generation is having so many problems. I guess I am old and outdated, but you don't change things to make the people feel better, make them work harder. This school is a waste of time and money and the ones targeted had all the same chances as the ones that do make it, they just did not take advantage of it. We are not helping anyone by coddling these kids.
On Gov. Walker flirting with presidential bid
For the comment about needing a college degree, you do not. Having a degree does not make you smarter, I know plenty of people with college degrees that are complete idiots. Leadership is from within. We should not think about his degree, just himself and the way he is, and bought by money,
On Holding pattern: AirFest's future depends on big teams, sponsors
This was all a Hendricks project. It has improved from the start, they learned. I has ruffled feathers when it was 4-H fair weekend. Speaking of that, The fair is fine and no coperate sponsers is better. I think they have to look out 3-4 years and get the early book dates for the acts they want, pick a weekend and stick to it. NOT Memeorial day weekend, bad choice, and many times bad weather. I think it has run its course myself, but good luck to the organizers, it is a lot of work.
On Homeless experience opens Gazette reporter’s eyes, heart
Good article, It is hard for anyone to understand how they feel unless they have experienced it.Very good job.
On Republicans propose two sales tax holidays
Genius, pure Genius, (did I use the right font for sarcasim)
On BTC board approves training facility in Milton
Grady, that is good, but how about interaction with students in different programs, or the library. Or maybe some of the STUDENT funded activities they have going on during the day. There is much more than just classes for many, but BTC does not see that for part of their enrollment. BTC has thumbed its nose at the classes of "TRADE SCHOOL". They want to eliminate that idea. When I was there I called the area the "slums". I asked one VP of education about things and she said she had not been to that area in "awhile". I still remember, we had one wooden bench to sit on and the rest of the school has many cusioned chairs and couches, LOL, It is like the slums, they know its there, but just don't want to acknowledge its existence.
It is good for Milton, that is for sure. My problem is that it isolates students, sort of like the north campus. Finally BTC can get rid of all that scum form those industrial progams. If they could only get rid of Auto tech from their to they would be happy. When I was there that end of school was treated as 2nd class. I hope it has changed. How will some of the core classes work? Will there be separate sessions in Milton, or will they be forced to commute? The students will get no interaction with students from other programs either. Also, how will thier activities dollars be spent, will there be a separate activities progam at the new center, or are they expected to commute. Good decision, but many questions arise about fairness. I hope the students do not get shortchanged. An equal experience for all is needed, not just provide for the "good" courses
