On proposed funding cut for humane society: Asking the humane society to favor dogs over cats because its funds have been cut, that is outrageous, and no humane society living up to its name would even consider it. If city funding must be cut to give the humane society what it got last year, cut it somewhere else—not an extra police officer but some place less important, like a fountain in the middle of a river, for example.
I’m referring to article, “City, humane society at impasse over cost of animal control,” about the city not wanting to pay more to the humane society. I think that is more important than spending money on a two-way street in Janesville.
On Sunday’s Compass II cover: The magazine that came in The Gazette speaks 1,000 words. It’s a picture of Milwaukee Street at night. Look at it and see how confusing that is to people.
On downtown Janesville traffic flow: Everybody turns and goes up North Parker Drive because the traffic lights are too long on Court Street, and thus they miss some of the Main Street businesses.
On Nov. 7 Milton School District referendum: The facts are the Milton School District is at or near the bottom in spending per pupil for many years, while still maintaining the facilities with the monies available. Because of overcrowding and increasing enrollment, the time has come to invest in the future of the district. This is the right solution at the right time.
All the people in the Milton School District, please vote on Nov. 7 to vote this school referendum down. That school referendum does not have to be. There are a lot cheaper solutions to their so-called problems. We do not need another tax hike in this district.
Thank you Milton School District administrators and school board for putting up with all the personal attacks and doing the right thing for kids. We need this to keep our schools.
On Trump’s call to Gold Star widow: What President Trump was saying to the Gold Star widow is, ‘Your husband was a hero. He knew what he was signing up for, but he did it anyway.’ He did this on the advice of General John Kelly, a Gold Star father.
On Trump coverage: Why does The Gazette have such trouble giving positive press to President Trump? The Dow has closed the last two days in a row at astronomically high levels never seen before, and where do you put it? All the way back in B Section of the paper with the funnies and the people who write to these columnists. It’s disgusting. If it’s something negative about Trump, you will put in on the front page.
On being presidential: Mr. Trump, it is hoped that by some remote chance you viewed the presentation to John McCain Sunday evening at the National Constitution Center. You have the title commander-in-chief bestowed on you as president, not by military background. If you did view the ceremony, it is hoped that you might begin to exhibit a sense of understanding as to the gravity and magnitude of your office and your role as commander-in-chief.
On Saturday story, “Records detail chaos at state youth prison”: Sen. Tom Tiffany and Rep. Mary Felzkowski are blaming the juveniles at Lincoln Hills School for Boys and Copper Lake School for Girls for staff problems and use of severe punishment against juveniles. They should stand tall and proud for their votes for and participation in this. Who closed the two largest facilities in southeast Wisconsin and sent the juveniles to smaller schools hours away from their families? Who praised and proudly voted for Act 10, which cut worker numbers, pay, benefits and destroyed their union voice on issues?
On The Gazette’s Packer predictions: I’m calling on the Janesville sports staff and their picks today in the Sunday paper. Just because Aaron Rodgers is not playing, doesn’t mean the Packers can’t still win. I think they’re wrong.
On end of Cubs season: This is just a thought on the Chicago Cubs losing to the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was nice that they were world champions for a year. I thought that they had more talent to make a run at two to three years, but now they can become the lovable losers once again.
