"On June 25, 2014, The Racine Equality filed an Ethics
Complaint against District 3 Racine County Supervisor Monte Osterman.
Following the filing of the Complaint, Dr. Ken Yorgan had this to say: "The Racine Equality Project, in response to citizen
concerns, has pursued an investigation into the activities of certain
elected officials and non-elected public employees. This investigation
has been done with a thorough examination of public records, including
tapes and transcripts of public meetings and statements by the parties
being investigated. What we have found is very revealing, often
disappointing, and sometimes quite disturbing."
From Root River Revitalization: "As you may know County Supervisor Osterman is being brought up on
Ethics chargers over his actives over Root River and Rootworks. 7 counts
with a large amount of documentation "This was filed Yesterday by The Racine Equality Project with the
County with if my understanding is right also asking the D.A. for
charges "If given a web site to the large fillings/video I was given at
Yesterday’s Press event or the Document in Word I will be posting them
here too. "Of course the Journal-Times has nothing on this as of this date after

"SEATTLE – A 70 year old woman is stopped by three young men with a gun
right outside her Seattle home. They got her keys, but they didn’t get
away with her car. That’s because when the would-be thieves got in
Nancy Fredrickson’s car, they discovered it was a stick shift. None of
them knew how to drive a manual, so they ended up ditching the car and
Hello, my cool cucumbers!How are you?We’re finally
getting April weather in June.I guess I
should be glad that I don’t have to run the air conditioner very often, but I
wonder if those “savings” don’t get spent on higher heating costs in colder winters.If it stays this cool through fall, I’d say
we’re in for another nasty, life-threatening winter.It gets harder every year to put up with
winter.I love Christmas, but you can
have the rest of it.I’d love to
hibernate for three months every year. That
would be a good excuse for putting on body fat, too.
I’m so glad that the police arrested those two alleged bank
robbers.It’s been quiet lately.I find it hard to believe, but maybe those
two guys alone robbed the bars and the banks.I hope that’s true.People would
feel a little more secure in their homes and businesses.I’m still locking my car and setting the
alarm, I still lock my doors and windows at home.I’ve always done that.
I do hope that Mr. Mayor Dickert will take some time to pat
himself on the back for capturing these criminals.
And what about “Machinery Row,” the latest scam meant to
attract Chicago millionaires who
are idiots?I think they said this project
is going to cost $65 million.Don’t
worry, however, because the state is going to pay for most of it.I’m so glad that the state has so much “free”
money earned by the sweat of our brows.It’s only tax money; it’s not like it’s real.
Junior is already getting antsy because the 4th
of July is next week.I reminded him of
the power of firecrackers and the permanent damage that they can do.I told him that if he blows off a finger this
time, I’m not going to reattach it.So
far, so good.But the firecracker tents
will soon sprout up in empty parking lots.It’s hard for a boy to ignore such a plethora of temptations.I’ll tell you that if a straw buyer provides
him with firecrackers, he/she will face the Wrath of Zoltar®!They’re already too many things that “go
bang” in our lives.I must add that I’ve
heard a reduction in the amount of illegal firecrackers exploding each
year.Thank you, Racine Police
I don’t know about going to the parade and fireworks this
year.I’ll have to wear winter clothing.I think I’ll stay home with the Señor.Steaks on the grill for any Irregulars who
stop by.We’ll have a few beers and soda
on ice, too, just in case.
That’s it for this week, my dears.I appreciate your presence and
responses.I love the JTI.
Subject:Racine Equality Project Files 7 Count Complaint against Racine County
Racine Equality Project, in response to citizen concerns, has pursued aninvestigation into the
activities of certain elected officials and non elected public employees. This
investigation has been done through examination of public records including
tapes and transcripts of public meetings and statements by the parties being
investigated. What we have found is very revealing, often disappointing and
sometimes quite disturbing.
Been very busy recently and just wanted to drop in and say hi to let everyone know I am not dead! The JTI comes up in my feedly stream so I have been seeing all the posts but not able to respond much or post. Lots of events at work and as many of you know, we opened an improv theater here in Tucson in January. It is going well, but keeping me (and everyone else) very busy. Shows every Friday and Saturday night, I am teaching an improv class right now and running the tech booth for other groups that rent out our theater for shows. Hardly get to do much photography...although I am scheduled to go up Kitt Peak Friday night and the weather forecast looks promising!
But last night I got a pic of the ISS pass. It wasn't that long after sunset so the sky was still fairly bright. I used the brick wall in the courtyard of my townhome complex to block some nearby lights.
Tough to get many stars in that condition...but a nice little streak nonetheless taken during what photographers call "The Blue Hour" for obvious reasons!
I noticed that Racine is no getting good ISS passes this week while Tucson is. Interesting quirk of the orbit...this pass occurred on the descending node of the ISS orbit...now I am trying to work this out in my head and going to be distracted for a while (this is OCD and ADD kicking in at the same time...you get obsessed with something that distracts you from work).
Yes another part to my wildflowers that I would like to share with everyone. The weather lately has not been cooperating to go out and get any quality pictures so I am going to post some that I have from other days. I hope you will enjoy these just as well.
This is a picture of Bluebells taken at Colonial Park in Racine Wi..
This is a picture of a Crested Dwarf Iris taken at Richard Bong State Recreational Area in Bristol Wi..
This is a picture of a Red and White Tulip taken at Swift Lake East Troy Wi. This was just on the side of the road by the trees.
This is a picture of a Oxeye Daisy taken at Pike River Pathway in Mount Pleasant Wi..
This is a picture of Swamp Rose taken at Pike River Pathway in Mount Pleasant Wi..
This is a picture of Dames Rocket taken at Shoop Park in Racine Wi. Now you can see these every place you go.
I have also seen the vines for Trumpet Creepers starting to get green so they will be blooming very soon with all the rain we have been getting. There is one on a pole on three mile road that I keep watching when I pass it.
I hope everyone enjoys the pictures and yes there will be more coming soon.
"Black families pondering a move to the Midwest might want to read this,
especially if they have young children. According to a national report, Wisconsin has been ranked the worst state in the country when it comes to racial disparities for children."
This is the stuff that drives me crazy. This guy fractured his daughter's arm and fractured his son's arm and ribs. His punishment: probation.
The judge, like all Racine judges, enables the guy to keep djrinking and beating his kids until someone is killed. Then everyone will say, "How could this happen?"
Drinking does NOT cause you to beat your children. I'm so sick of that lie. Drinking is not an excuse to break the law or children's arms. I'm a low-bottom alcoholic who caused major injury to myself by drinking, but I still would never think of harming a child.
I know a guy in AA who raped a two-year-old (I don't even wnat to think about it) and blames it on his alcoholism. Bullshit!
By blaming this child abuser's drinking instead of the guy himself, Torhorst again enables more drinking and child abuse in Racine.
Our judges need to spend a few hundred hours in AA. Then they might get it: you are responsible for your actions, drunk or sober, NO ONE ELSE.
"On 13 June, 2014 Moody’s
reported that Gateway Technical College was preparing to issue
$7,000,000 in bonds to finance equipment purchases and various building
"Note that the debt of Gateway, which is paid by
property owners in the District and appears on property tax bills, will
be $55.2M after the bonds are issued. Of course, The Journal Times
failed to report the new borrowing and that the notes would be secured
by the District’s unlimited tax pledge – which means it is to be added
to District Taxpayers Property Tax bills."
