On Budget panel votes to prohibit sugary drinks bans
I sure miss the days when adults were in charge.
On Sen. Ron Johnson will seek re-election
Interesting that these guys are all about term limits, self imposed or otherwise, until they actually get in office. Then they're so indispensable to the survival of our democracy and our way of life that they just have to stay . . . and stay . . . and stay . . . .
[Interesting too, of course, when newspapers endorse the idea of terms limits but then keep endorsing their favorites for reelection year after year after year.]
On Republicans propose two sales tax holidays
Anything to get people to like you, I guess.
On Funding concerns linger on I-90/39 work
A large portion of state highway funds comes from the federal government. The states spend those funds at their own discretion.
On Wisconsin lawmaker accuses treasurer of expanding office
If there's anybody out there who actually believes that ANY politician, Republican or Democrat, will follow through on a promise to shrink government in any meaningful way . . . well, I have a new bridge in Beloit to sell you.
On Wis. election head disagrees with Romney
". . . mailed passed the Sept. 22 deadline. ".I believe the writer meant to say ". . . PAST the Sept. 22 deadline." .Apparently bad grammar is trickling up from the commenters to the reporters. I was afraid of that.
On Twins leave Beloit for Cedar Rapids
If anyone is to blame for this it is the indecisive leadership of the local organization. After Avalon Road fell through (thank goodness) two proposals were on the table, one of which came with substantial funding and the board just couldn't seem to decide so here we are without a team.
On Milton City Council votes down chicken plan
On Beloit city, town officials start collaborative discussion
I would hope that they are able to tackle truly important issues that could lead to more efficient, lower cost delivery of critical services such as police and fire protection and NOT get mired in trivial discussions about chicken ordinances. But that's just me.
On Wisconsin smoking ban marks second year
To speak of smoking as a "right" or in terms of "liberty" or "freedom" is to elevate it to a status it doesn't deserve. It is, in fact, simply a habit that the smoker is unable to control – nothing more, nothing less.
In the 1950s somewhat more than half of all adults smoked. Now only about 20% do, maybe fewer. With non-smokers in the vast majority they get to dictate to smokers where they can smoke in public, if at all.
The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
