"Our friend, Beth David, was honored Wednesday night at a banquet hosted by the Racine Police Department. "Beth was given the Citizen Public Service award for her work on
Jacato Drive, jumping into help a homeless veteran and his dog on one of
the coldest days of the year, keeping our community safer by putting to
work the power of social media to help police catch wanted parties, and
to help pay the medical bills for a K9 officer facing a
life-threatening condition. Beth is the founder of Racine Uncovered
website. "She doesn’t want a big deal made of this award, but we have to say it’s very much deserved. "Way to go, Beth!"
Hello everyone and welcome back! Many apologies for not being around much. It has been a banner spring for migration. I've been hitting the fields hard and heavy with favorable results! Anyways, here are some questions for you before I head out... again.
1) What animal(s) that you have never seen in the wild that you want to see in the wild?
"Pending approvals from Mount Pleasant committees, O&H Bakery will
take up residence in the former Towne Ford location at 5910 Washington
"The old car dealership will be transformed into a bakery production
facility with a store out front, according to plans obtained by Racine
County Eye, and confirmed by a press release from the company.
“'T'he planned expansion is a result of continued growth in mail order and
retail sales of Kringle and other Danish pastries and baked goods.
This bakery will allow for continued growth of mail order and retail
sales from within a new baking facility, increased office space, and a
flagship retail store,' the release reads.
"O&H spokesperson Peter Oleson said the new bakery should be open in spring 2015."
"The city of Kenosha is being investigated by outside law
enforcement agencies, allegedly for tampering with emails and other
public records. "The Racine County Sheriff's Department has
confirmed it has launched an investigation into city hall, but would not
comment on the details of the investigation because it is still open.
Sources familiar with the situation say the investigation centers on
allegations that city officials called for the scrubbing of some public

authorities about the possibility that records were being deleted.

County Sheriff's Sgt. Bill Beth. 'It's something involving city hall. We

From Keep Racine's Water Rates Affordable For All:
"It is time for the Wisconsin State Legislature to end the abuse of
Racine’s water utility revenues by introducing Legislation that will end
the practice of allowing local Politicians to raise water rates,
siphon off water utility revenues, or issue water utility revenue bonds
for local government operations or other development activities that are
unrelated to the operations of the water utility. Ensuring safe, clean
and affordable drinking water for all is the only long term sustainable
option that will not jeopardize future Generations supply of safe,
clean and affordable water."
Hello, my thunderstorm troopers!How are you?Still wringing out the water from everything?I hope you weren’t flooded.The rest of the week is looking gloomy with
more and more rain in the forecast.Meanwhile, Ms. Mary in Oklahoma
is dying of thirst.I don’t know if you
believe in global climate change, but something sure has been wacky with the
weather the last few years.
I’d like to get in a little picnicking before Memorial Day,
even if it’s just in our yard.We’ll
have to drag out the trusty old wood picnic table and benches.If they haven’t rotted out, we’ll have to
drag out the trusty rusty grill.There’s
nothing like food cooked on a grill and eaten outdoors.(By the way, “we’ll” = Señor Zanza and Junior
We’ll have to be a little careful with the lighting of our
grill.Señor Zanza seems to have no
conception of how much lighter fluid is needed to start the charcoal, even
after past explosions.Junior, of
course, just encourages him because he likes explosions.I want to eat my grilled chicken at the
picnic table, not in the ER.
The story of the firing and rehiring of St. Catherine’s High
School basketball coach Bob Letsch is a wonderful example of a community coming
together to make their wishes known and heard.Obviously, those currently running the high school heard the community
and reacted by rehiring Mr. Coach.Hurray for them and for everyone who worked for Mr. Coach’s
rehiring.May God bless you all!
I know it’s a cliché, but you should “stop and take some
time to smell the roses.”Roses come
later in the season, but nature is emerging, sprouting, and bursting out all
over the place.Take some time to walk
in a park with flowers and foliage.Listen to the birds up above.Watch the wildlife scampering below.Even if it’s just a stroll around your neighborhood, many yards are
exploding with colors and greenery.
Can’t get out?Then
Oh my, that was glorious.Like you, my readers, are also glorious.You are a member of our glorious family, the JT Irregulars.Thank you for reading my blog today.
Enjoy whatever weather you can in the coming week.Don’t put away the snow shovel just yet.When it’s cold and/or raining, then you can
shake your fist at the heavens above and ask, “What’s amatter, You?”Mouchard!
"Does the Common Council of the City of Racine actively espouse an
agenda of discriminating against Inner-City residents and Businesses? "The answer is YES, as Alderman Krystyna Sarrazin of the Second District makes this stunning admission!"
I remember going to Havahart with my mom, shopping for fish for her aquariums while we were growing up. I've seen Havahart expand, and grow and become a really amazing place, with amazing people.
I love that the staff size is small, and that you see the same people every time you visit. They know their stuff, and can help you with anything you may need.
They offer on site grooming, to make your pets as adorable as possible :)
Havahart had a hand in me becoming Lizardmom, as my very 1st iguana was purchased there, at the tender age of about 2-3 months old. They have reptiles, fish, furry critters, almost anything you can be looking for, and all the supplies and things your pet could need. The personal feel of a smaller place is what makes them stand out above all the other places.
Havahart opened in 1979, when 2 brothers, with a shared love of animals, decided to do something with that love, and look what they have today!
Besides their website (clickable link on their name above), they can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.
The 3 words chosen to describe Havahart -
Stop in and check them out, you'll be glad you did! Don't forget to let them know you saw it here!!

"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."
