On Grassman pick at BTC raises eyebrows
Gee - sounds like this guy would fit right in at BTC - as a student! Just another example of a this self-serving "educational" adult day care Vo-Tech (oh yeah, "college") center gone seriously awry. Time to pull the plug on its independent taxing abilities, and put the associate degrees back in the UW system where they belong.
On UW-W commencement: 'Here I am, standing strong'
'Here I am, standing strong' - IN A LINE! Better sit down...it's going to be a long wait.
On 150-year-old oak tree felled to make way for highway
Yeah, because we sure need more bypasses (especially since we seem to be getting fatter by the moment)! Nature will not be happy - and in resetting the balance it invariably seeks, humans will pay dearly for such needless transgressions in the pursuit of "progress" in this recently more-and-more ridiculous and obese state and country!
On Janesville parks remain off-limits to dogs in summer
What a joke - this is the kind of provincial thinking that keeps Janesville in the dark ages!
On Walkers cropping up locally to take stand against hunger
What hunger is that? These drives are well-intentioned but completely misguided!
Folks should be walking AGAINST obesity, not for more food! There's no country in the world that provides more free food options to overweight adults and kids than the USA, and then worries about how to pay for the health results of that very same obesity epidemic.
On More accountability coming to comments
So it's really about GENERATING REVENUE, hmmm?
Hey, I guess I can't blame you - the Gazette is a business in a downward spiraling industry in the grips of tumultuous turmoil. I suspect that with a dwindling newsprint market (and a big, new printing plant to pay for!) - along with the fact that, aside from a measure of local fluff, much of the material the Gazette prints (and you can add the BDN to that list) or posts is straight from AP and other sources - and with the significant staff reductions you've made, it won't be long till this show is a one-person operation...Mr. Scott Angus! You know, it's often said that if you can't say something nice, don't say it. But in reality "nice" is different than "good" and far different from REAL. Nothing ever decided or changed because comments or discussion was curtailed in lieu of people actually expressing how they really feel! It just puts their thoughts and ideas and frustrations on simmer (all the way down to a dry-pot meltdown), which is what this country is just beginning to feel at present. Should be interesting (and newsworthy) though, eh?
But, c'est la vie, non? It's been a good run, but in a town that can't make sidewalk plan decisions and won't let dogs in the parks or on the trails, this comes a no real surprise! The news/newsprint business is headed the same way as the USPS - "down, down, down," to quote Springsteen! Thanks...for the memories!
On Vote due on adding dead Wisconsin officer to memorial
Jeez - now it depends on WHO kills an officer and WHY they did in consideration as to whether that individual officer gets their name added to a memorial of officers killed "ON-DUTY" (seems pretty simple)? Come on, you dolts! I hate to say it but I have to admit I'm with Lil' Scotty Walker on this one! What kind of knot-heads are running this non-profit memorial anyway?
On Janesville City Council to discuss letting dogs return to parks
It's ABOUT TIME that people can walk their dogs in this city in the parks and pathways. What a backward, behind-the-times policy that Janesville has adhered to for years! Let's move out of the dark ages - maybe Janesville might be a more attractive place for people to move to, live and work if we could shed some of these idiotic Draconian practices and restrictive minsets.
On Franklin Middle School hopes to reinvent itself
Why does the shcool need a grant or to initiate a "reinvention" process in order to teach "science, technology, engineering and math"? Just do it! What do they think schools in China and India are doing right now? "Reinventing" themselves - or teaching difficult subjects and expecting students to work hard to succeed? We need to quit with all the soft, euphemistic, pop-psych/pop-mgmt stuff and move on to the real world...that's the problem. We buy the students iPads on the taxpayers' tab, "teach" nonsense subjects, and overreact every time some parent complains that their little special snow-flake angel didn't get a fair shake. But the rest of the world doesn't care about that issue - it's hungry and wants to sink it's teeth into our lazy, idyllic, and oh-so-temporary, fleeting lifestyle...and draw blood (or at least money)!
On Is Levitt looking to leave?
LEGACY:1. Millions wasted money on an aging and little-used ice arena that should have been closed, torn down - perhaps to make way for a new fire station on existing city property (but then...I guess it's lucky he didn't get to waste millions more of taxpayer money on the "double-sheeter" arena proposal he was so ardently pushing for...or a children's museum, or an ill-placed, unnecessary I-90 pedestrian overpass!).2. Complete indecision and a hands-off lack of leadership displayed on perennially recurring Janesville "sidewalk plan" issue.3. Rarely seen or heard otherwise, no major successful job initiatives.
Q: Will Eric keep that "low profile" going in the next job and let the council do the dirty work there too? It has apparently served him well(but not particularly this community).
"California here you come," eh? Careful of that door on the way out, Eric! Toodle-loo.
