On anonymous $11,000 donation to cover Evansville overdue lunch fees: God bless the anonymous donor! This is a blessing to help make sure no child has to feel ashamed about not being able to pay for lunch! Thank you to whoever you are!
- Angels walk among us.

On Seneca Foods proposal to build housing for its migrant workers: Maybe if I tell my employer I’m only going to work six months a year, it will pay my bills for me.
- They’re not going to live in the place year-round. It’s a place to stay while they’re working. It will probably save the company money over hotel costs and be better for the workers, too.
On changes to dangerous Highway 12 intersection in Whitewater: I’ve been through that intersection many times and not even a close call. People are just in a hurry and too wired! You see it everywhere, from crazy driving on the Interstate to barely slowing for stop signs. Time to get a grip, folks!
- All intersections are dangerous. It’s the actions of the drivers that create the problems. You can’t regulate stupid.
On multi-vehicle crash Tuesday on I-90/39 killing Milton man: I understand that there really isn’t a good place for someone to pull over when a car breaks down, but the BIGGEST issue that I see every day is that folks are tailgating—not even giving a car length between themselves and the next car. Which is crazy! There’s no room for quick thinking/braking. Speed is also another issue.
- The problem is people going way over the posted limit in the construction zone. Got to pay attention, as well as go slower. I feel so bad for the loss of life.

- Does anyone realize how foggy is was out this morning? That may have also been a factor.

On exterior improvements to The Venue in downtown Janesville: It’s nice to see all the new stores and all the renovations. Good job. Now, how much longer for that (Milwaukee Street) bridge to be built?
On the former Shopko and other vacant retail space in Janesville: Build a second story on it to house apartments and assisted living for the elderly. First floor will be for doctors offices, a small pharmacy and small family restaurant.
- Laser tag on half and skating rink on the other.
- Gentlemen’s club or a cotton candy factory. I’m undecided still.
Probably move it to the
- south side and make it a grocery store, or use it to replace the much-missed Monterey Dam.
- Is it me or does it seem like Janesville has turned in to nothing but restaurants and mattress stores? Every corner on the northeast side seems to have multiple restaurants and a mattress store.

How about the city buys them and creates youth friendly, safe hangouts, such as trampoline parks or indoor skate arenas!
