Description Ewing’s Sarcoma is a very rare cancerous bone tumor that affects children, it is so rare that only 200 cases are reported each year. It is not an inherited cancer, it occurs after […]

Wisconsin State Journal – Getting It Wrong for 100 Years!

Posted March 10th, 2014 @ 9:47 AM by

The more things change, the more they stay the same. The Wisconsin State Journal published an editorial on March 9th, 1914 proclaiming “Send Pickles to fight Scurvy“. Are you aware the scurvy is prevailing in our army, and our troops are diminishing every day in consequence? If so, why not try to alleviate their sufferings, […]

Elizabeth Coppola in the 21st!

Posted November 15th, 2013 @ 10:58 PM by

Elizabeth Coppola In the 21st! Our public schools depend on it! Broken deals, petulant behavior, single-minded focus on an extreme social agenda at the expense of legislation to put Wisconsinites to work and move our state forward… If you watched last night and this morning on WisconsinEye, read about it in the papers this morning, […]

A Biased Letter

Posted March 16th, 2013 @ 3:38 PM by

For those who do not know, the Janesville School Board has demanded that the teachers sign contracts without actually knowing what is in them.   This is following a long line of contentious dealings between the Janesville teachers and their local school board.

The Mockery of the Madison Media as a Meaningful Medium

Posted February 26th, 2013 @ 8:48 AM by

The Madison School Board race has been interesting to say the least. For those of you scoring at home, three candidates declared their candidacy for Seat #5, Sarah Manski, TJ Mertz and Ananda Mirilli. Having three candidates meant that a primary was triggered to narrow the candidates on the April ballot to two. On primary […]

Permit Occassionally Required!

Posted January 14th, 2013 @ 7:25 AM by

As the Cartoonish Chief Erwin sends his minions all over the state to issue tickets for singing in the Capitol, (purportedly for gathering in groups of four or more) yet he is selective in who gets these tickets! H/T Rebecca Kemble for this picture from Inauguration Day: I checked Ccap and none of these people […]

Posted November 27th, 2012 @ 8:25 AM by

We all know by now that Sly in the Morning and the local news team, on 1670 WTDY was ambushed and fired the day before Thanksgiving by new General Manager Rick Mccoy. Thus effectively ending any local voice that progressives have. Also ending any chance that people have of actual real time news coverage. With […]

So the people in the village who so adamantly oppose the library, will not make a fool of themselves when they try and write letters to the editor! Goodbye Fiscal Responsibility Destination Imagination (DI) is an excellent after-school program that provides educational programs for students.
