On Panel passes Wis. food stamp work requirement
dtb.......I would agree with you that lots of people on food stamps work however it is diffucult to quantify "lots". I would be more willing to believe the 31,300 quoted in the article and that is just wrong.
On You’ll get billed even without using water
I agree that billing by the number of occupants would be more equitable but can you imagine the billing nightmare that would be.
On Janesville Ground Round closes doors
Wouldn't it be nice if everyone was as proficient at their occupations as they expect our service industry to be.
On 9 hurt as motor vehicle hits buggy
This is directed at the Gazette Staff...What makes this an article that can be commented on vs. any other traffic accident with injuries and citations that you won't allow comments on...and for that matter several articles daily that you won't allow comments....confusing!!!
On Janesville city manager is only finalist for city manager job in Simi Valley, Calif.
(This comment was removed by the site staff.)
On Downtown snow removal scheduled for tonight
It may be worth noting that it is a violation of City of Janesville ord. to plow snow from your drive way into the street.
On Janesville hotel changes hands
bosslady96.......If what you say is accurate then the reporting sucks. The article states it will "operate as Janesville Hospitality".If the article is correct then I agree with Gary,it is a terrible name.
On Janesville firefighters, police to pay into pensions
dodgeco...What you say in realty isn't entirely correct. It takes something like 40 qtrs of work to be eligable for s.s. That can be attained by part-time work or during retirement.
analertcitizen...Yes the police pay into the s.s. system in Janesville but the firefighters do not. That has nothing to do with the pension system. There are several different professions that don't pay into the s.s. system. Several police agencies,firefighters,railroad workers ..etc. This all has to do with being given the option of opting out when the s.s. system first started.
These headlines and comments are very misleading. The Police and Firefighters have been paying the full contribution into their pensions for many years. Every since they were part of the State of Wisc. pension system. Through out the years,when the GM's of the world were getting the huge raises, the public sector were refused these raises so they negotiated benefits in lew of a pay raise. These pensions contributions were some of those benefits. YOU CAN SEE NOW HOW THE CITIES,COUNTIES AND STATE NEGOTIATES IN GOOD FAITH.
