On New York firm seeking to invest $150 million in SHINE Medical Technologies: I was just saying how we need more radioisotope facilities in Janesville. That, and a Portillo’s.
On proposal to increase Janesville wastewater rates: By another $4.20? Water rates were about $50 to $70 every three months in the early 1990s. Most rates are about $200 to $250 now. Costs, maintenance and upgrades certainly haven’t tripled or quadrupled in 25-plus years. I know my wages and inflation haven’t gone up that much. It’s hogwash!
On season-ending injury for Parker girls basketball standout Julia Hartwig: So sorry to read this! Prayers for a successful surgery and quick recovery!

I wouldn’t want that to happen to you, so I would be on your side—unlike when people (such as yourself) made the teachers take the fall for the economic collapse.
- Why didn’t they write this editorial eight years ago?
- I see The Gazette is dabbling in comedy with that first paragraph.
On Janesville kindergarten teacher appearing on Wheel of Fortune: We will be watching from Chicago. Good luck! The experience alone is a gift.
