The Smartest Horse That Ever Lived - A True Story

Florence County in Wisconsin's Northwoods declares itself Second Amendment sanctuary

From JSOnline:

, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

A county in rural northeastern Wisconsin has declared itself a Second Amendment sanctuary, a move that could spread to other counties. 
The day after Veterans Day, the Florence County Board unanimously adopted an ordinance designed to send a "keep your hands off our guns" message to politicians.
The nonbinding measure gives the sheriff the ability to "exercise sound discretion to not enforce against any citizen an unconstitutional firearms law." However, that doesn't mean firearms will not be taken away from convicted felons or in criminal cases,  including domestic violence or drugs.
"I think it's a great thing," said Sheriff Dan Miller, who was elected last year. "It sends a message that all of Wisconsin is not exactly the same. We have some different beliefs up north. We tend to be a little more conservative. We like our guns. We believe in God."
Several other counties have contacted Florence County officials to express interest in passing similar ordinances. 
Florence County Supervisor Edwin Kelley said attempts by Gov. Tony Evers to call for action on gun violence has made his constituents nervous.

Waterford admin alleges town officials 'drunk at meetings' in 'unacceptable' Facebook comment

From The Journal

WATERFORD — Village Administrator Zeke Jackson, in a since-deleted Facebook comment posted to a public group, accused two Town of Waterford Board members of going to “meetings to conduct public business while intoxicated,” screen captures of the comment show.
At least one of the Town Board members is now considering bringing a slander or defamation lawsuit against Jackson and is calling on the Village Board to fire him. Village trustees are also discussing options on how to respond to Jackson’s behavior.

The Journal Times received screenshots of the comments Wednesday evening in an anonymous email, hours after publishing a story detailing a memo Jackson sent to village trustees in which he called the town government “a form of Totalitarian Dictatorship” and referred to the village government as the “good guys.” The allegations and memo come as village officials have given up on trying to salvage the village’s fire and emergency medical service contract with the town.
Jackson’s comment reads, in part: “(Town Chairman) Tom Hincz is a liar. And a drunk…and he shows up to meetings drunk. I’ve been beside him when he is drunk at meetings. … (Town Supervisor) Nick Draskovich showed up, and spoke, at our village board meeting absolutely drunk a few weeks ago. Many witnesses.”
Jackson, when informed The Journal Times had been sent the screenshots of his comment, did not deny posting the comment. He changed the subject and spoke for several minutes about his fiery memo before hanging up.

New Fears Over Antibiotic Resistant Infections

Dave DeGroot Admits to his Criminality

MOUNT PLEASANT — The Mount Pleasant Village Board has approved a $22.5 million budget, which includes an increased tax levy — the amount taxpayers collectively pay to fund the budget.
The village is levying $20.3 million in 2020, which is an increase of nearly $1.1 million.
The budget also includes funding for body cameras for every officer in the Mount Pleasant Police Department that automatically turn on if the dashboard camera is triggered.
On Monday, the Village Board voted 6-1 in favor of the budget. Trustee Gary Feest was the only board member to vote against it.
Feest said in the roughly 10 years he’s been on the board, this is “the most responsible budget I’ve seen come out of this village,”
“I think Maureen (Murphy) and her staff did the best they possibly could to present this budget to the residents,” Feest said.
However, Feest does not believe the budget is sustainable and although there is no borrowing called for in the budget, he doesn’t believe that is going to happen.
“My main issue is how do we pay for things? My angst has been, we just keep floating it out to the future residents and eventually that’s going to snowball,” Feest said. “Like I said, I think it’s one of the most responsible budgets but the fact that, in my opinion, it’s not sustainable.”
Village President Dave DeGroot agreed it is a responsible budget but disagreed with Feest on how the village is handling its debt.
“This budget is kind of a reset and due in part to the growth we’ve had,” DeGroot said. “We’re not borrowing on this budget, so to suggest that our debt is increasing isn’t quite accurate.”
But DeGroot said the village does not have “a sustainable way to maintain our roads.”
“By not borrowing this year, we’re not doing much in way of roads next year,” DeGroot said. “That’s putting off work that needs to be done.”

Tax rate going down

While the budget increased nearly $1.2 million from the current year’s budget, the village’s portion of the tax rate is going down.
The tax rate is down nearly 25 cents, to $6.80 per $1,000 of assessed property value.
However, that does not necessarily mean property taxes will be going down. If a property increased in value, and many have, residents are going to end up paying more.
Village Finance Director Michael Bonn said if a $200,000 home had its property value increased 10% to $220,000 that would mean the village’s portion of the property tax would be roughly $1,496, an increase of over $90 from last year.
Besides the village, the property tax bill also includes the state, county, Gateway Technical College and Racine Unified School District.
This story has been corrected to reflect that Michael Bonn is the village finance director and not the treasurer.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers Finds His Ballz

Dear Representative Vos,

Evers calls GOP state senators’ vote ‘amoral and stupid’

Evers calls GOP state senators’ vote ‘amoral and stupid’

From The Journal

MADISON — Democratic Gov. Tony Evers said Wednesday that he doesn’t believe Republicans are “bastards” for firing his agriculture secretary, despite using the word when urging state workers not to be deterred by the move.
Evers stressed that he wasn’t referring to Republican lawmakers when he told state agriculture department workers last week not to let the “bastards” keep them from doing their work. He noted that the phrase he invoked — “don’t let the bastards grind you down” — was well known and used throughout history, including by other politicians and in World War II.
He called it a “term of art, it’s not a term of, necessarily, insult.”
“It’s not something I just pulled out of thin air,” Evers said following a bill signing in Wisconsin Dells. “It’s a saying, it’s a thing. I don’t think they’re bastards but I do think they made a huge mistake doing what they did to Brad Pfaff.”
Evers said he was angry after the GOP-controlled Senate voted along party lines to reject the confirmation of Pfaff, Evers’ agriculture secretary. It was the first time the Senate had fired a Cabinet secretary since at least 1987.
“Civility is at my core,” said Evers, a former school teacher and state education superintendent. “But at the end of the day, when they decided to do a political assassination of Brad Pfaff that kind of pushed me to a different place.”
Evers took the unusual step of attending the Senate debate last week in person. Afterward, he vented to reporters in a Capitol hallway in comments sprinkled with four-letter words. He called the move “absolute bull****.”
But Evers wasn’t done.

Waterford administrator calls town 'totalitarian dictatorship' in memo

From The Journal

WATERFORD — Village Administrator Zeke Jackson decried the Town of Waterford government as “a form of Totalitarian Dictatorship” in a memo to the Village Board, delivering his harshest rebuke yet since the village and town’s falling out over fire and emergency medical services.
Jackson made the remark in a staff memo prefacing a letter and survey he proposed sending to village residents that would ask questions about the two municipalities’ intergovernmental relationship. The incendiary memo, letter and survey highlight how severely relations have diminished in the two months since village trustees and town supervisors promised they would work to smooth out disagreements.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my dears!  How are you?  I'm so sorry for "disappearing" last week, but Lord Zoltar made an appearance on my front steps.  SeƱor Zanza thought it was best if I hide while he dealt with Zoltar.  So I did.  And I didn't come out for 24 hours - too late to post my blog.  So I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

Well, it looks like winter is here even though it's only early November.  You can say it's too early or it's too late, but you can't change the changing of the seasons.  How miserable.  I hate the s-word so early in the season.  Aaargh!

The Irregular Fantasy Football League continues.  The Orbliterators and the Racine Irregulars have already earned playoff spots

(Click to enlarge.)  I've dropped a couple of spots and the Half-Astrophysicists are on the way up.  How exciting!

Also exciting is the Common Council's attempt to silence Mr. Harry Wait.  Watch this:

Isn't it good to know that our civic leaders are so concerned with covering up the facts?  Why are they so scared of a single man stating the facts?  The fact of the matter is that the facts point to our government as being abusive of the facts and hiding behind them.  What a witches' brew is Racine politics.

I personally know Mr. Harry Wait.  He is very thorough in documenting the facts behind any statement that he makes.  How scared our city fathers and motherfathers must be of the truth.

In retrospect, the city papas felt that Mr. Wait should have been "gaveled down."

In retrospect, the Common Council and Butterball's Rangers should be removed from office.

Oh my!

Don't forget to respect one another:
