On July 13 article about home invasion sentencing: Judge Daley deserves a great deal of credit for doing the right thing in this case. What this family endured, the sheer terror that they experienced, will never completely go away. This sentence will at least ease the fear that they feel and will send a message to everyone in the community that this type of horrific behavior will not be tolerated.
On contacting Paul Ryan: I call Paul Ryan’s Washington office on an almost daily basis to express my concerns. Today I’m getting a “Ryan after hours” message, so obviously Paul’s staff do not want to answer his constituents’ calls. Come on, Paul, what are you afraid of?
On Milton School Board agenda: I was looking at the Milton School Board agenda for Monday night, and besides the referendum stuff they don’t give you any information on they are going to extend the contract for the busing company until 2022. I’m just wondering why they don’t bid this stuff out and see that they’re getting the best prices.
They don’t have any of the financial stuff in there that they’re paying Monday night. Is it because $4,500 is being given to the communications director again on top of his $126,000 plus benefits that he already gets, or is it other stuff they have hid and don’t want on the website maybe to do with PRA or Cullen?
On Sunday story about landlords and tenants: I’d like to see the other side of the story. Let’s hear from the landlords, the good landlords that actually take care of their buildings. A good tenant would not stay in a building more than 30 days where this stuff was not fixed. Signed, a good landlord.
I used to be in that same situation with the landlord I used to rent from who cheated me out of my security deposit. She lied to me and never kept her word, and she and her husband never did anything until time to collect the rent. It’s about time that the landlord association does something about it.
The city should come down hard on landlords that don’t do their jobs, and I think the tenants should be reimbursed and then some for all their inconvenience when they are forced to move because landlords play dirty tricks with their tenants because I’ve had one do it to me.
On story about Sen. Janis Ringhand making mustard: First of all, I wish she would stop trying to pass cookie bills and making mustard and get busy and help the people she represents in our state Senate. Also, I do not condone alcohol in any kind of condiments. Children eat mustard. Please, Sen. Ringhand, do your job. Many of us have voter’s remorse.
On Mercyhealth donating services of staff member to downtown ARISE project: Thanks, Mercy, to the decision to lead a ARISE fundraising campaign. Now, how about getting back to taking care of Mercy’s main job, taking care of all your patients and doing it as affordable as possible?
About Our Views on the pitfalls of landing Foxconn: I would say thank you, Gazette, for the gloom and doom forecast of any big industry relocating to Janesville. Why don’t we just close up the streets and close up the town?
On Monday front page story about Democrats’ message: Why don’t the Democrats just tell the truth and say they want socialism? They want to fundamentally transform this country from a capitalist society it was founded as over to a socialist society.
On movie prices: Our local movie theater that just raised prices a few months ago has raised them again quite substantially. A year ago, I could go to a matinee film and pay $5. Now, the matinee price is $8, and the regular price is $9.50. When I asked the manager there to explain why the prices have gone up since they just went up a few months ago, he said he had no idea. I’d like to know what is going on with them.
