"Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. set off alarm bells
Friday with a radio spot some view as a call for citizens to arm
"In the radio ad, Clarke tells residents personal safety isn't a spectator sport anymore, and that 'I need you in the game.'
"'With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option,' Clarke intones.
"'You could beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back.' Clarke urges listeners to take a firearm safety course and handle a firearm 'so you can defend yourself until we get there.'
I know that occasionally the Racine Police Department is stretched thin and they call upon surrounding communities for backup. I would not want to be a victim of a violent crime during one of those "thin" times. But I haven't armed myself, yet.
"RACINE — The settlement agreement that ended a former city employee’s
slander suit against Mayor John Dickert is a public record and must
released to the public, Racine Circuit Court Judge Gerald Ptacek ruled
"William Bielefeldt sued Dickert in 2011 claiming the mayor
defamed him in radio comments he made while campaigning for
re-election. The parties reached a settlement in late April, just days
before a scheduled jury trial. The lawsuit cost city taxpayers $100,000
in legal fees.
"In May The Journal Times filed a records request
with the city and Dickert asking for a copy of the agreement. A
confidentiality clause built into the agreement barred Dickert from
releasing the agreement without Bielefeldt’s permission or a court
order, so the city and Dickert filed a lawsuit against Bielefeldt in
June, asking a judge for direction."
Last weekend was The Big Chill in Racine Wi.. This is when the people make carvings out of the snow in downtown Racine. I didn't get down there over the weekend to watch them do make the statue's.
We had a lot going on here at the house my daughter was getting everything ready to go back to school. Drew and I did go downtown on Wednesday and we have gotten some really good pictures to share with everyone. I hope all of you will enjoy the pictures we froze taken the pictures.
That is all of the pictures that we have from The Big Chill in downtown Racine Wi. 2013. I hope everyone enjoys our pictures we a sharing.

Migrants from the north, the American Tree Sparrows are often found in weedy fields with the Dark Eyed Juncos.
Not to be confused with the over abundant, aggressive and invasive House Sparrow, the American Tree Sparrow are more of a rural bird than their Old World cousins. Wisconsin is home to 27 different sparrow species and I have documented 13 of them so far. I know that identifying sparrows can be difficult, so bear with me while I try to explain as we go along. The first thing noticeable thing about the American Tree Sparrow is the rusty red cap and rusty (not black) eye line on a gray head. They have a streaked brown back, and
a smooth gray to buff breast in both male and female. American Tree
Sparrows give an overall impression of reddish-brown and gray. A dark
smudge in the center of the unstreaked breast is common. Plus they have a bicolored yellow and black bill.
Their closest relative of the American Tree Sparrow is the Chipping Sparrow. They also have rusty cap, but instead of a rusty eye line, they have a black and white one and NO markings on its chest. Chipping Sparrows also have a solid black bill. On top of that, the Chipping Sparrows are summer residents while the American Tree Sparrows are the winter birds. I hope this helps
Look for small flocks of American Tree Sparrows hopping along on the ground in winter in weedy fields with hedgerows or shrubs, along forest edges,
or near marshes and roadsides. They readily visit backyards, especially if there's a

This past Saturday, Señor Zanza, Junior, and I went to see
the snow sculptures on Monument Square.What a sight they were!Simply gorgeous what they do with the
snow.There were ice sculptures, too, in
front of businesses on Main and Sixth Streets.They also were beautiful.Because of our weather, I think most of the
sculptures are still up and relatively unscathed.Stop by and check them out.
I’ve been reading and hearing a lot about Mr. Mayor

I was in Florida last week for my annual Disney Marathon trip. Thursday was a cool, windy day in and I went to Emerson Point Preserve near Palmetto. Lots of birds out that day and thought I would post a couple of pics for Drew and the other bird fans here. First, a pelican of some type (is there more than one type of pelican? Surely there must be).
Next, I know what this is. It is a roseate spoonbill. I love these guys, great color.
Here's another one where you can see the shape of the bill better.
See, I can take pictures of things that aren't in the sky too!
Okay, I blogged about the close pairing of the Moon and Jupiter so here are some photos. The first one I got about 3:00 in the afternoon, but I prefer this one I took about 3:30pm.
Jupiter is to the lower left of the Moon. I went out for sunset as well. This is the first time I photographed sunset with my new Canon 60D. Wow! A bit different than my old camera! Shoots a lot faster and the sensitivity is different. Managed to get the differences sorted out in time to get a green flash. I am sure I will get better as I practice with this camera.
As soon as the Sun set, I turned to the Moon and Jupiter.
About 8:00pm, I went back out and got this shot. The exposure was short to bring out details on the Moon. You can see the Montes Jura chain extending into the dark side of the Moon (upper left part of the Moon).
And I took one more with the Moon overexposed to bring out the Galilean Moons. Ganymede is to the left of Jupiter and Io and Callisto to the right. Europa was transiting in front of Jupiter at the time and not visible.
I hope you got to see the conjunction. Another one will happen on February 18th, but it won't be quite as close as this one.
The above snapshot is a pair of Bald Eagles that I've seen on the break wall in Carre Hagel Park last November. Since then. I've been increasingly aware that a pair or more of Bald Eagles hanging around in the Racine County area. More than two dozen sighting have been reported....
To give an idea what is going on...
On November 4, I saw two eagles at Carre Hagel Park. Later on, in the SAME morning, I saw ANOTHER one by the lighthouse.
On November 10, I saw one perched in a tree at Smolenski Park.
Just after Thanksgiving, I saw another by the lighthouse with members of the Hoy Audubon.
Just before Christmas, Tender Heart and I saw fly over Hwy 100 in Oak Creek. It was heading east.
Two weeks ago, Tender Heart and I saw one fly over Carre Hagal Park.
Last Thursday, Tender Heart saw one fly over 4 Mile Rd. It was heading north.
Over the weekend, we again saw another near the Festival site.
That's just a few reported sightings.... I've heard of some being at the Pugh Marina, Carthage College, Echo Lake out in Burlington and other place around here.
A good way to find these eagles is to keep an eye the gulls and geese. If an eagle appears, they will manically fly up into the skies creating a chaotic confusion Remember, a birds' eyesight is very keen.
I'm aware of that some readers may have never seen an eagle, now is a good time to keep an eye on the skies.... Good luck!
Shifting gears here away from the rare and unusual to something more plain and common. Something we ALL may have seen.... the Dark Eyed Junco.
Dark-eyed Juncos are neat, even flashy little sparrows that flit about
forest floors of the western mountains and Canada, then flood the rest
of North America for winter. They’re easy to recognize by their crisp charcoal grey markings, white underbellies and the bright white tail feathers
they habitually flash in flight. One of the most abundant forest birds
of North America. Not only just found in forests, but in fields foraging for seeds with American Tree Sparrows, parks, backyards and even under feeders. They are everywhere...
Dark-eyed Juncos are birds of the ground. They hop around the bases of
trees and shrubs in forests or venture out onto lawns looking for fallen
seeds. You’ll often hear their high chip notes, given almost
absent-mindedly while foraging, or intensifying as they take short, low
flights through cover.
This picture was taken this afternoon at the nature center in the Richard Bong State Recreational Area. Tender Heart and I had been birding there for four hours with great success. I liked this picture especially the way it was looking up at me as if to say, hello.... The picture below was taken in my backyard on 10/19/2012. That's about the time of the year that they arrive in Wisconsin. They'll stay here until about April before heading back to the Great White North.

"The famed Bald Eagles from Decorah, Iowa are back on their nest and ready to start a new family! World famous and live streamed via the internet by the Raptor Resource Center, anyone can view the parents raise their eaglets from egg to fledglings from the comfort of their homes. Using infrared cameras and microphones, the eagles can be seen around the clock during the nesting season, which starts in January or February and runs till June."
