On Tax-free Internet shopping in jeopardy
For those who oppose this, maybe you're not aware - but you were supposed to claim and pay state and local taxes on your online purchases when you filed your tax return.
Now, because people haven't been trustworthy enough, they have to force e-tailers to collect those taxes if they have high enough sales ($2M or more annually).
On Gateway seeks $49 million for expansion
HandBookHarry: The recall is a constitutional and legal process. Would you like to give up your rights to vote and protest because they cost money?
On Hot Wheels race stays on track to benefit charity
What a blast, it sounds like a throw back to my childhood right down to the teeth marks on the track connectors!
I wish my hotwheels had working odometers, I'm sure they've racked up enough miles on my race tracks.
On Janesville School District: 'Dying' computer equipment poses risk
TCB so you're saying I shouldn't aim for a better life than my parents or their parents? You go dig a ditch, I'll be a first gen college graduate, earn more money and pay more taxes.
Chromebooks would be an inexpensive, portable option that would be viable in certain areas that don't need a full fledged laptop (at twice the cost when you add in the laptop, antivirus software, office software, management software, and ongoing updating).
The idea is to put kids on technology that they will consistently use throughout their education, at home, and later in life.
For all of the people bashing this idea, you are all the same people I've had to help retrain later in life because someone computerized your office or workshop and now you have to use something you know nothing about other than Farmville or Facebook. This isn't school circa 1963.
Grow up. The school district of Janesville is already on less than a shoestring budget. This is not wasteful spending. These big purchases are because they have no budget to maintain existing hardware with skilled staff, ongoing training, and rotate out retired hardware on a controlled and timely basis.
On Pub expands into neighboring building
The service issue is not a rare issue there. I've heard from a few friends that they had less than stellar service there, mostly long waits and feeling forgotten. It not a reason to shut the place down, but if the owners are reading they should take heed the opinions of those who are spending money at their establishment.
On Walker says no to federal Medicaid expansion
I don't often browse the comments but when I do, I can count on the same nuts attacking each other with their own party rhetoric.
I think we can all agree that we end up paying for uninsured people in the end anyway. It would have been nice to get some of these folks on preventative care and prescriptions that could prevent big, expensive, long term illnesses. But the people of Wisconsin have spoken.
On The end of Gen-X in J-Ville
Thanks for the great articles, Steve. It was a good run and I'm glad you're comfortable ending on a high note.
For what it's worth, if you ever start a hobby blog, I hope to book mark it. I've enjoyed your writing and think if you did it for fun, you may find it more enjoyable and less of a chore.
Cheers and best of luck,.
On Milton on list for BTC plan
It was no surprise that private business wouldn't lift a finger to help BTC do this... remember this when people claim privatization is the best way to go.
