On this week’s snow emergency: This would be great if, when they plowed, they didn’t just skim off the top and leave an inch or more on the streets. Most of Janesville was dangerous to impassable after they “plowed.”
- It’s hard to skim the streets when there are pothole patches sticking up higher than the road surface.
- Get good tires, and you won’t have an issue on “impassable” roads. I have no issues driving on snow or ice with good tires on my car.
- Now if they can get the whole “depth perception thing” down and possibly avoid one or two mailboxes or disposal garbage containers, that would be great.
On opposition to dairy farm expansion near Brodhead: The land cannot handle all that animal mass. This isn’t rocket science! It’s GREED!
- I’m 100 percent for sustaining and supporting small family farms, but it’s a known fact that large dairy farms are held to a much higher standard and stricter regulations than the small family farm. They are watched closely merely because of their size. Unfortunately, there are some small family operations that aren’t nearly as visible or high profile that should be watched closer than they are.

- With farmers having to dump tanks and tanks of milk not that long ago, I can’t help but wonder how the smaller family owned farms will be able to remain going?
On city of Janesville proceeding with Monterey Dam demolition: Thank you to city staff for moving forward on the council decision made last year. Now, let’s get the bids secure and get to what’s next.
- TRUMP wants to drain the swamp. Janesville wants to make a swamp!
- Did anyone research what the effects of the removal of the dam will do to all the riverside homes? Are they willing to pay for flood insurance for all the homes that may affect?
- It would appear this will happen in the summer no matter how much the bids are. Will we be discussing any “oopsie” cost overruns this time next year?
- It’s time to start making plans to tear out the Centerway Dam, too. It’s such an eyesore. We don’t need it, either.
