"August 24th-Racine’s Peacefest to be held at Quarry Lake Park"

From RacineUncovered:

"Due to the overwhelming support from the community, we have moved Racine’s Peacefest to the Quarry Lake Park located at 3800 Northwestern Ave. It will still be on Sunday August 24th from noon-4 p.m. We feel this will be a great location allowing everyone to participate without an admission fee to the festival and will help bring the entire community together for a day of fun, friendship and also raise funds for the RAPD COP Unit."

Bedtime Games
Installment 152

Make your best guess and.... GO TO BED!
Answer revealed tomorrow.
Hot town, summer in the city, back of my neck getting dirty and gritty.  Been down, isn't it a pity?  Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city.  

And babe, don't you know it's a pity?  If the days can't be like the nights.
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my hearty hotcakes!  How are you? I had the a/c on for only a little bit before.  I’m afraid of the electric bill.  I’m trying to survive on fans and breezes only.  Fat chance.  August is usually the hottest month, so the best (worst?) is yet to come.  I feel sorry for Ms. OKIE and Mr. hale-bopp for their hot locations. 

Things have settled down here with the leaving of Señor Zanza’s 15 “children.”  I’m beginning to think that they were little people somehow related to Señor Zanza’s “business.” My, oh my.  He’s a man of mystery, or a jerk, or both.

I read about RUSD stripping most of their libraries of books.  Before they ship them to Africa, how about allowing the people who paid for the books a chance to look them over?  I’m sure there’s many books there that community members would like to have.

RUSD says that they want to make the libraries less boring with more recent works.  At this stage of the game, I suggest that RUSD just allow students to watch television, surf the net, and/or text all day long.  For the few serious students, give them the grades that they earned. For the rest, hand out grades randomly.  Win-win.

There just was the most amazing “light show” from Mother Nature’s lightning in the east over Lake Michigan.  They sky kept lighting up, but no thunder was heard.  A storm was passing through and doing its thing out on the lake.  Or perhaps it was heat lightning.  I don’t know, but it was impressive, either way.

Remember to not stand underneath trees and other objects during storms for “lightning protection.”  Lightning can play strange tricks. There’s even “ball lightning” that can shoot through your house.  Are you covered for that?  You might want to visit your insurance agent.

Thank you for visiting me today.  I'm always open to new friends.  I love the older ones,too.  

When your life becomes stormy: madamezoltar@jtirregulars.com

Enjoy the sun and fun, Irregulars.  We all know what the flipside of this is: December, January, February.  And the dreaded "s" word.  Ariose!

"Thousands Of Books Removed From Racine Unified Schools"

Credit: Racine County Eye
From Racine County Eye:

By Denise Lockwood in Breaking · July 21, 2014

"Members of the Racine Education Association are calling on the Racine Unified School District to stop 'weeding' school library books out of school libraries by the 'tens of thousands,' including the Bible, Koran, and The Iliad & The Odyssey of Homer.

"The Racine Unified School District is purging 'tens of thousands of books' copyrighted prior to the year 2000, according to a statement by the REA. But Racine Unified School District spokesperson Stacy Tapp said the district works with school staff members each summer to refresh the libraries.

“'We provide a list of books to the library media specialist to consider pulling from the shelves because they are outdated, in very poor condition, don’t align with curriculum or have not been checked out in many years,' Tapp said. 'There are additional factors that are considered as well. The school libraries have funds each year to replace old items.'”
