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, […]

Why Cottage Grove Desperately Needs a Library!

Posted May 25th, 2012 @ 12:44 AM by

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. Participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and […]

Hariah H. Hutkowski Wants Your Money!

And he wants as much of your taxpayer money as he can get his hands on. If you live in Sun Prairie or have driven through you would have probably seen a sign with the unique name. Mr. Hutkowski(Mr. H) is currently running. Not a typo as Mr. Hutkowski is running for every job he […]

Dane County Conservatives(should scare you)

Posted February 21st, 2012 @ 8:46 AM by

Today is primary election day in Wisconsin, so please go vote. I recommend Heidi Wegleitner and Carl Chenoweth. Unfortunately there are not primaries(or even opponents) for too many races. When going to the polls in Dane County, I wanted to point out a couple things that may have been missed. 1. The conservatives on the […]

Wake up and Smell the Coffee!

Posted December 9th, 2011 @ 11:05 AM by

Especially if your in Verona, WI! Local Verona small business Tuvalu Coffeehouse has come under some scrutiny(both positive and negative) for allowing people to sign their recall Walker/Kleefisch petitions inside the establishment. Instead of addressing every single response personally it was much easier for owner Erika Hotchkiss to respond to everyone Via a LTE in […]

New Rule – part 2.

This should be a given, but here goes. New Rule – Staff from really bad politicians make really bad politicians! While there are too many examples to name (Robin Vos and Cottage Grove’s own ex-appointed president being a couple. Sun Prairie is also finding that out with Mayor John Murray who was formerly paul ryan […]

Misplaced Priorities

The Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work and then get elected and prove it. P.J. O’ROURKE, Holidays in Hell The Village Board in Cottage Grove has been making some news lately, besides the probable privatizing of our Emergency Medical Services.

Vicky for assembly

Posted April 17th, 2011 @ 7:16 PM by

I attended my first ever candidate announcement the other day when Vicky Selkowe declared her candidacy for the 48th assembly district, replacing Joe Parisi. Even though I am not in the district, I wanted to see what a “formal announcement” was all about. Vicky gave a very good speech, she stressed two aspects that were […]
