An Open Letter To Chris Mertes – The Sequel

Posted January 7th, 2015 @ 10:09 AM by

A few years back, Sun Prairie Star Editor Chris Mertes wrote such a ridiculous editorial that I wrote him an open letter. Mertes has outdone himself with his latest editorial so it is time for a sequel. It is said before every city council and plan commission meeting. It is said before every Sun Prairie […]

So the proponents of Wisconsin state referendum question #1, a constitutional amendment to protect the transportation fund, put out a video to convince the public why the measure is in their interests.  If you go to the section on what people want their transportation money spent on, you see: Repair the streets.

If you have not heard by now, one of Scott Walkers closest allies, Cynthia Archer, was recently promoted to a civil service job where she received an almost 12% raise and is making $31,000/yr over her predecessor.

There is a scandal brewing in Wisconsin that not only typifies exactly who the Wisconsin Republican party is but what is wrong with Wisconsin the last three years. A quick recap, Scott Suder knew he was going to be one of the first rats to jump the ship, so before he did, he wrote a […]

The Voucher Scam!

Posted August 17th, 2013 @ 1:25 PM by

The truth of school Vouchers is slowly starting to come out and its not pretty. While Scott Walker, Robin Vos, et al. will tell you that they have “reformed” education, they will not be telling you the truth.

Posted March 10th, 2013 @ 8:29 AM by

The Monona Grove Board of Education, building principals and district office administrators, and teachers (Monona Grove Education Association) join together to urge legislators to oppose any expansion of the voucher program for schools. Perhaps the most important reason to oppose voucher expansion is that research of the 22-year voucher experiment in Milwaukee shows student performance […]
