On City wants 21% water rate hike
If you don't like the enevitable increase after GM left, whom was keeping your prices down, then go out and buy a septic system, the services to clean it yearly, drill your own hole for water, buy the filtration system to clean the water, the services for upkeep and materials for the filter and pump, and hire your own company to pick up your waste. Then come back and complain. I bet it won't be about a small necessary hike from the city. Or you can always blame Obama like the person below.
On Janesville's debt will grow
@rprp, what do unions have to do with non-union city representitives spending more more money? Not a great fan of unions like the UAW because of the abuses that gave unions bad rep, but if it weren't for unions you would not have fair employment acts, a mandatory minimum wage, mandatory 10 minute breaks every 4 hours, equal opportunity employment mandates, and I could go on. Waiting for you to blame liberals now even when you are so bright you don't realize liberals reside in both political sides.
On Romney might be visiting Janesville
Let me guess, he is going to meet with rich families and business owners? Who he needs to meet with is the unemployed, the not so well off, the people he is saying he is going to help. Unless of course my thoughts are correct that votes don't count they can only be bought so he needs more revenue from the wealthy to get elected. How else can one not notice that the more money the politicians spend the most likely they are to be the ones elected? Why do you suspect millionaires spend millions campaigning for a six figure a year job? Romney needs to stay on I-90 and go on to the next town.
On Wrecking ball again aimed at historic gas station
During the time my uncle used it as a repair shop there was never a drop of grease put into the ground, jethro! Who knows about the tenant before.
On Matt's Dog House is moving downtown
The soggy cold fries and a hotdog plus the higher prices do not appeal to me as an individual but I am sure a few drunks will like it if they have any cash left. As for parking, the ramp is packed in the day and at later night. The day walk not to bad but late night I wouldn't walk it with some of the violent drunks. Kealy will do fine at the new spot but how will his workers fare having to deal with that bar crowd will be another story. Those two bars are notorious for fighting now the after bar rowdy drunk can have food fights. Most of the bar crowd that hit Denny's and Perkins are less rowdy and less drunk in order to take their drunk butts all the way to those places. What I miss is Court Street Cafe. Patty melts, prices, and the staff were the best.
On Annual drug roundup collects less material but remains effective
Nevermind. I overlooked the drop box paragraph. That paragraph should be at the end stating if a resident needs to drop off medications that there are drop boxes at those sites.
It is nice to see the reduction of drop offs as a positive. What I would like to know is other than this one day event where can a person drop off medications on the other 363 days of the year. That information would have been beneficial, in the paper not as a reply in comments here since not everyone reads extra.
On Rock County Humane Society sees fewer animals in 2011
I think they are releasing them without people knowing to save on money. I live nearby and have noticed about 10 new stray cats wondering around lately. can't tell me they are coming from a farm.
On WIAA board considers moving basketball tournaments
First Madison is a heck of a trip for our northern Wisconsinites. Now it will be a heck of a trip for our southern Wisconsinites. Why has this venue not just placed in the center of the state? Maybe like uhm Stevens Point.
On Project will make changes on Highway 26 between Janesville and Milton
saxcat70 is correct. They are going to tear up a perfectly fine road (beautiful imho) and repave it. Most likely with black top that will fall apart every 5 years. I also can't wait to see where they divert the traffic for the bypass. Probably through one of the three wasteful turnabouts that head off toward Whitewater on 59. Those things are a joke. Take the old highway and you beat anyone taking those turnabouts. Wouldn't it be awesome if they dumped three or four of these down hwy 26? Gonna tick thousands of drivers off.
