On Sunday editorial, “Criticism of Clinton police off base”: If Mr. Tim Pogorelski owned the pharmacy, the hardware store, the beauty salon, the meat market (anything beside the business he owns), would he have been attacked in the manner that he was? He was speaking as a chamber of commerce president, not as the owner of a tavern. If you would have attended the meeting, you would have known this.
In this Sunday’s editorial about the Clinton bar owners, maybe they should ask Police Chief David Hooker about his time spent as one of those lax officers before he was appointed as chief.
I am very disgusted after reading the Our Views article on Sunday. First and foremost, Tim and Randy Pogorelski donate a tremendous amount of time and money to the Clinton community. They have one of the biggest fundraisers for VetsRoll, give to numerous community fundraisers as well as the athletic department. If it weren’t for people such as them, our community would not thrive.
It is high time someone stood up to the bars and meat-market thugs and said drunkenness and lawlessness are not acceptable. Keep our streets safe. Back the badge. Make America great again.
On traffic circles: Why does the DOT seems bound and determined to create poor visibility on the traffic circles with the mound in the center or tall weeds? How does traffic safety get improved by blocking vision?
On ditches: Why hasn’t Rock County been out to mow more than once this summer? The ditches are beautiful, but come on, they’re weeds.
On House Speaker Paul Ryan: Paul Ryan, are you going to stand by and see our president have another government shutdown? You did very little to help middle class and lower class people on the last government shutdown. Let’s not let this happen again. Stand up to the president.
Paul Ryan, you’ve done it this time. You don’t think that Joe Arpaio should have been pardoned. Well, I do. As far as I’m concerned, you don’t get my vote this year or any other time.
On NAFTA: Will Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Rep. Mark Pocan work with the president on renegotiating NAFTA so blue collar manufacturing jobs return to Wisconsin, or will they side with California Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters and do nothing?
On Foxconn: We’re being told that there could be up to 13,000 jobs at Foxconn. Great, but we are being told this by the same guy that said he would create 250,000 jobs in his first term. I’m still waiting.
Why isn’t anybody talking about Foxconn’s employees that have committed suicide, the low wages and the poor working conditions they have?
On Craig girls cross country and swimming preview: The Craig girls cross country team was quite successful last year with high expectations for this year. However, the team preview Thursday, ‘Showing off their soles,’ only mentioned one girl. The Friday preview of the girls swimming team was quite skimpy as well. To exclude the returning letter winners is an insult to these hardworking girls.
On the Milton School District referendum: I don’t give a blank check to a Realtor or a car salesman and let them give me a house or a vehicle I haven’t seen. That’s why I’m voting ‘no’ on this referendum. It has no blueprints and no finished plans to vote on.
On Sunday Sound Off comment about two-way Milwaukee Street: Why are people still complaining about making Milwaukee Street a two-way? That’s the city’s most tired argument. Who can honestly be against easier navigation downtown? It’s done and over with. Get over it, and by the way, everyone I talked to downtown likes the change.
I know it’s been a while since Janesville did the two-way streets downtown. I was against it at first, and I still am. It’s a joke. Come on, you wasted money, and it wouldn’t take anything to put it back to one-way streets.
On Mayweather-McGregor fight: Connor McGregor fought arguably the best boxer in history to a draw for eight-and-a-half rounds. If Mayweather stepped into McGregor’s world and engaged in a real fight, where Marquess of Queensberry rules do not apply, he would not last two rounds, and no one will even argue otherwise.
