Good morning everyone I think that Mother Nature is having a melt down today. The temperature is dropping instead of staying warm outside. On the news they are saying the waves can be from 3 feet to 5 feet high this is really crazy. Here are your questions!
1) Do you feel like when you go to the doctor they keep giving you more medicine?
Fagan sought more than $659,000 related to moving his business for
the planned mixed-use redevelopment known as Machinery Row, north of
Water Street and east of Marquette Street. Fagan’s lawsuit requested
compensation for damages he said he incurred because of how the city
handled the project.
Fagan, the sole plaintiff, and his attorney Todd Terry had asked for a
default judgment in their favor.
The City Attorney’s Office sought
dismissal, based on the contention that the city and its officials were
never properly served with summonses.
In Racine County Circuit Court Judge David Paulson’s courtroom
Tuesday, Terry put the woman on the stand who had prepared the documents
to be served to the defendants, and then the process server who was
used. He tried to establish that there was a careful process and
unbroken chain of command.
City Attorney Scott Letteney then called nine city employees to
testify, both about whether any of them had seen a summons come in with
the complaint — none had — and their processes for handling court
documents that are served at City Hall.
Paulson concluded the summonses were not served with the other
documents. He denied Fagan default judgment and dismissed the lawsuit —
but without prejudice, meaning Fagan can refile his suit.
Hello, my monsters and friends! How are you? Did you have a good Memorial Day weekend? It was hot as hell. It's supposed to get hot again tomorrow, but who knows? No one has seen Mother Nature in over a year. I wonder if climate change killed her? Oh my. Do the sudden shifts and extremes of weather annoy you? We rack up some pretty wack temperatures during a year. I like it warm in the summer, but not hot. Of course, I rarely get my preference. It's been a damp, cool spring. I wonder what summer will bring. The boys say the garden is still too wet to work in. Let's hope that summer brings whatever is best for the farmers.
I believe a subtropical storm, Alberto, is touching down in Florida. Ever notice how much weird stuff happens in Florida? Every day there is some short news clip about Florida. So, yeah, Floridians don't have to shovel snow or deal with the bitter cold. However, we don't have to deal with hurricanes, or alligators overrunning the place, or the crème de la crème of idiot drivers concentrated in one spot, or all the other things you read about Florida in the paper or online. Peace, Floridians. Just pointing out the obvious.
Memorial Day traditionally signifies the beginning of summer. I can't believe that it's here already. Just yesterday it was January, wasn't it? They say that time goes faster as you grow older. That's certainly true for me. By the time I adjust to summer, it will be fall. What's everyone in such a hurry for?
How about this?
Racist Roseanne is off the air. Her revived program was a big moneymaker for ABC. It didn't matter - ABC did the right thing even though it hurt themselves. Bravo!
Enjoy the weather to come. Before you know it, the 4th of July will be here. That's the day I avoid the parade and fireworks now. Everyone goes crazy and drinks like a fish. I'm better off watching the parade on TV. _____________________________ Please donate: paypal.me/jgmazelis If you don't like PayPal, send me a note at email@example.com and I'll send you my street address so you can send a check or money order.

MOUNT PLEASANT — Midwest
Environmental Advocates on Tuesday announced its filing of a legal
action in opposition to a multimillion-gallon daily water diversion from
Lake Michigan for Foxconn Technology Group.
Friday, the last day an objection could be filed, MEA filed its
petition under the Great Lakes Compact to challenge the state Department
of Natural Resources’ April 25 approval of the City of Racine’s request
to divert 7 million gallons per day of water outside the Great Lakes
“This legal challenge is
essential, as Wisconsin’s approval of the Lake Michigan water diversion
requested by Racine tests the integrity of the Great Lakes Compact by
ignoring a key requirement of the historic agreement entered into by the
eight Great Lakes states and enacted into federal law,” stated MEA
attorney Jodi Habush Sinykin. “This mistake must be corrected to defend
the Great Lakes Compact and to protect our magnificent Great Lakes in
the near and distant future.”
For the last two week Drew and I have been looking for a car. Yesterday we found a Ford Escape so we are saying goodbye to our Chevy HHR that is going to my daughter and saying hello to the Ford Escape.
WILL Press Release | WILL and Brown County Taxpayers Association Respond to Lawsuit
Question why county bothered to have original case dismissed
May 24, 2018 – Green Bay, Wisconsin – Yesterday,
Brown County filed a lawsuit reopening a dispute over the legality of
its new 0.5% sales tax. A previous suit, brought by the Brown County
Taxpayers Association (BCTA) and a Brown County resident, argued the tax
was illegal because state law says a county can only create a sales tax
“for the purpose of directly reducing the property tax levy.” Brown
County’s sales tax would not reduce the property tax levy and is
intended to fund a slew of new projects. The suit was dismissed on a
Contrary to initial reports in the Green Bay Press Gazette,
the County is not seeking to have the judge throw anything out (the
first case was dismissed without prejudice and not appealed), and is not
asking BCTA to pay its eyebrow-raising $125,000 legal tab from the
first suit. Instead, the County is doing exactly what BCTA tried to do
in the first case – seeking a ruling on whether the sales tax is legal.
“Brown County says they want a judge to decide whether the sales tax
is legal,” said Rich Heidel, President of BCTA. “That’s all we asked
for in our original lawsuit. Why did the County waste everyone’s time
and money getting the first case dismissed on a technicality? We
could’ve been done with this already. The judge in the first case was
going to hold a final hearing in April if the case hadn’t been
dismissed. We tried to get this done as quickly as possible. They
wanted to slow it down.”
The County’s focus on “saving” property taxpayers money by
implementing a sales tax is beside the point. “Whether the $147 million
in new spending is a good idea or not is irrelevant,” said Heidel.
“What matters is whether the sales tax is legal. And it isn’t, because
it was used to pay for new spending instead of for reducing the property
tax levy as required by state law.”
BCTA also objects to County Executive Troy Streckenbach’s absurd
characterization of the group as somehow having limitless resources.
The small group has virtually no assets and could never have afforded to
hire an attorney to protect their rights without the Wisconsin
Institute for Law & Liberty offering pro bono legal services.
“Selling the County as some poor David up against our Goliath is
ludicrous on its face,” explained Rick Esenberg, President & General
Counsel of WILL. “The County went out and hired some of the best – and
most expensive – lawyers in the state and can vote to spend effectively
however much it wants on litigation. We’re far more limited in our
More information about the case is available here.

How Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Got Taken in the Foxconn Deal
Regardless, while the general assumption has been that the Wisconsin
plant will produce large LCD panels, suitable for the biggest TV sets
being sold, The China Post reported on August 12 that a Sharp
official described the proposed U.S. plant as focused on making small
LCD panels, primarily for the automotive market. Just more evidence that
what Gov. Walker and his team have envisioned is unlikely to come to
Regardless of the final nature of Foxconn’s development in Wisconsin,
Gov. Walker’s conceit that an insular manufacturing site will somehow
be the viral start of what he is calling “Foxconn Valley,” a Midwestern
Silicon Valley, is the kind of magical thinking which would be comical
if it didn’t involve decades of dipping into the wallets of Wisconsin
note that Corning has already REFUSED to come to Wis Valley unless the
already beleaguered and overburdened Taxpayers of SE WI pay for their
"If Foxconn Technology Group is going to build a Gen 10.5 LCD fabrication
facility in Mount Pleasant, then a manufacturer of glass substrates
will have to locate on the same property. The head of the company
expected to build the plant, however, made it clear this week his firm
would not be carrying all of the cost to do so.
Wendell Weeks, Corning chairman and chief executive officer, said
during an earnings call this week that the strategy the company has laid
out makes it clear that “we weren’t going to put in new melting
capacity for display unless we get two out of every three dollars from
others and that we could keep 100 percent of the revenues and profits.”
Alderman Jeff Coe is alleged to have made this remark, when denying Vapemeisters an alcohol permit:
Online records show that the committee recommended denial after First
District Alderman Jeff Coe raised concerns about underage people being
around alcohol and the possibility of setting “a precedent for approving
other businesses within the city to sell alcohol so long as they serve
Alderman Jeff Coe confused? Alcohol & Food are a staple in Racine,
WI. So what's the problem? Has his hand not been greased?
I'd have to agree with the sentiment of the owners of the Establishment:
Last week, the Public Safety and Licensing Committee recommended denial
of the shop’s application. The recommendation, given at a Tuesday
committee meeting, left Jeff Kurth, the lounge’s general manager, in his
words “confused and baffled.” It’s a recommendation he hopes the City
Council will overturn at its meeting on June 5.
Does "Pay to Play" rule Racine?
I personally refuse to believe that Alderman Jeff Coe is a Teetotaler.
He appears to be a regular at many Downtown Bars which serve alcohol and
I guess that the SHAKEDOWN has now come into play - So what's the VIG? Jeff Coe drinks for free?
