On breast feeding in public: Why does everyone get so upset about breast feeding in public? If done discreetly, mind your own business. The nude breast does not need to be exposed. Coverage works well.
On pizza delivery drivers: We’re out here busting our tails to make a living, putting our cars through major traffic, maintenance and everything else, and you people can’t afford a decent tip to the drivers who deliver a hot pizza to them. That needs to stop. You need to think of us drivers as hard workers, too.
On handicap parking tags: A message to drivers, the handicap tag hanging from your inside mirror is to allow you preferred parking. It is not meant to remain hanging while you are driving to alert oncoming drivers that you have a problem. In fact, leaving it hanging while driving may be illegal.
On Janesville animal control funding: Until the citizens of Janesville take responsibility for their pets, the city council will have problems with dog and cat overpopulation. The humane society needs to be fully funded to deal with this. More pressure to promote licensing is needed. Feral cats are the biggest problem.
The humane society is just a million-dollar revolving door for excess pets. They would save millions and reduce excess pets by euthanizing those that are unclaimed or injured after two weeks. Their current process is ineffective and very costly and does not reduce the number taken in.
Councilman Jim Farrell and his colleagues just showed their ignorance. You don’t just throw up an animal shelter at the last minute to take care of animals for a city. It’s pretty disgusting that they’re playing games with the humane society’s budget.
On Nov. 7 Milton referendum: Milton voters should consider one more consequence of turning down the Nov. 7 school referendum. School employees have more open job opportunities in the state at this time. Referendum failure may lead them to move to more forward-thinking districts. Employee quality may fall to match the poor facility quality.
I am all for the addition at Milton East and some of the remodeling, but because it is $70 million that most people can’t afford, I am voting ‘no’ and will wait until the spring election when maybe they will bring the correct referendum to the people, and we can get these projects done.
On Sunday editorial, “Time to back a new Milton High School”: With all due respect, I must say that The Gazette editorial is extremely uninformed. Many citizens have repeatedly offered solutions that solve the district’s needs, allow our teachers to be highly compensated and appropriately staffed and improve the educational experience, including athletics and the arts while showing sensitivity to all the burdens placed on taxpayers.
The Gazette’s ringing endorsement must have been very easy for them to make since their taxes won’t rise dramatically as taxes of those of us who live in the Milton School District will. I urge a ‘no’ vote for the taxpayers.
On Milton High School pool’s alleged water loss: The Milton pool actually meets the acceptable range for water loss due to the normal process of evaporation based on pool dimensions. It’s no mystery where the water is going.
On Thursday guest editorial, “Voter fraud commission at dead end”: It was stated that it’s always a mistake to decide the outcome of an investigation before it has been completed. I thought I was reading about James Comey exonerating Hillary Clinton. What a farce.
On “Big Fish” musical: What a wonderful musical, ‘Big Fish,’ presented at U-Rock. The acting and music were outstanding; emotions ran high. I smiled at tenderness and laughed and cried at appropriate times. Best line for me in the play to be remembered, ‘It’s not over. Tomorrow begins today.’
On Wisconsin ranking No. 4: If they consider the Badgers the No. 4 team in the country, college football is at its demise. There are 25 teams in the top 25, and I would venture to say 24 of them would probably beat Wisconsin. They have played nobody to this point, and some of the nobodies they played gave them a good challenge.
