"Slowly but surely, and one GO (General Obligation)
Bond at a time, Bryan Albrecht and his unelected Board are making
progress towards borrowing the $49M requested by Gateway in a
Referendum, and which the Taxpayers of the Gateway District rejected. "Ever since April 2, 2013, when District voters turned down Gateway’s referendum to borrow $49M,
Bryan Albrecht and his unelected Board have been making steady progress
to turn their failed referendum into a reality through back-door
borrowing that goes unreported in local media channels."
By Heather Asiyanbi in Government · August 27, 2014 "Racine Alderman Edward Diehl announced Wednesday that he is running for mayor against incumbent Mayor John Dickert. “'I am not from Racine, not Wisconsin,
not even the Midwest but my wife and I have adopted Racine as our home.
Now I am asking the taxpayers of the city of Racine to adopt me as the
next Mayor of Racine,' he told Racine County Eye. "Diehl is originally from a Northeast Pennsylvania but has lived in
Racine for 10 years. He was elected to the city council last year and
says he was encouraged to run for the city’s highest office by
residents. “'I have received many, many phone calls
and emails over the last four or five months and it has been humbling
and empowering,' he added. "Diehl says he will be a servant-leader if elected, which means he
plans on connecting with as many facets of the community as possible and
leading 'through service and being an example.'”
I just can't believe that the fall is coming already and all the wildflowers will be gone soon. I don't know if it is me or not it just seems that the Summer has gone by quick. I am still going out there and looking for some wildflowers that I may have missed or some new wildflowers that I have never seen before. I do have a couple of new ones for everyone this week. Here are some pictures I would like to share with everyone:
This is a Yellow Crown Imperial the picture was taken on the corner by Colonial Park in Racine Wi. I took this picture back in May and just found out what it was with the help of friends on Flickr'. They do come in different colors too. Below will be a Orange Crown Imperial.
I just thought they are so different and I too a picture of them to share with you.
This is a Hollow Joe-Pye Weed with a Monarch Butterfly this picture was taken at Chiwaukee Prairie in Pleasant Prairie Wi.
This is a Cardinal Flower the picture was taken at Chiwaukee Prairie in Pleasant Prairie Wi.
This is a March Violet the picture was taken at Grant Park in South Milwaukee Wi.
This is a Wood Rose the picture was taken at Richard Bong State Recreational Area in Brighton Wi.
This is a Yellow Columbine the picture was taken at Richard Bong State Recreational Area in Brighton Wi.
This is a Cornflower the picture was taken at Whitewater College in Whitewater Wi
This is a Wood Poppy the picture was taken at Whitewater College in Whitewater Wi.
This is a Milk Thistle the picture was taken at Richard Bong State Recreational Area in Brighton Wi.
I hope everyone enjoys the pictures as much as I enjoy going out and taken the pictures. Like I said there are some new wildflowers this week. The first two pictures I could not believe it took me that long to figure out. Enjoy the rest of the week everyone!
They talk about the money they need. They had money for building maintenance and repair that they spent on other things. So again they are asking for more. BUT, they don't give any guarantee that the money will be spent on what the say!
“After listening to the community, the Racine Unified School District Board of Education decided that holding the line on taxes and an investment in our community and our kids is the right way to go. Tonight, the Board voted unanimously to place a referendum on the November 4 ballot, asking voters to approve a set amount of money for a specific time period – $8.5 million each year for 15 years – with no tax increase. This will address significant education, technology and building needs facing our District and is a much-needed investment in our kids and our schools.
The money will be used to address ongoing school building maintenance problems like roofs and heating systems that have long been deferred because of a lack of funds.
"According to the Wisconsin IPAS system, 184 documents were recorded

Racine during the first 212 days of 2014."
