As many of you living in and around Milwaukee know, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation is suggesting that the stretch of I-94 from 19th Street to 70th Street be rebuilt and expanded to four lanes. Because of space restrictions at the Miller Park interchanges and the veteran’s cemetery just west of there, DOT would like […]
Yesterday’s BizJournal ran a story about the “potential GOP presidential candidate”, Scott Walker and some of the other WEDC executives (because he’s the CEO, don’t you know) going to London to talk up Wisconsin as a potential investment site for UK firms. They are planning to “highlight Wisconsin’s growth sectors: energy, aviation/aerospace, water technology, agriculture, […]
What makes the end of the season for Green Bay yesterday particularly awful for me is the loss of solidarity in Wisconsin. For 20 short weeks, all of Wisconsin is pretty much united behind the Pack. Granted, we have differences of opinion about the plays, the coaching, the players and even the weather during the […]

Watch Scott Walker tie his tongue in knots. Priceless.
Congratulations to Zach from Blogging Blue and WKBT Channel 8 News in LaCrosse. Why?
They appear to be the only two media outlets that got the headline correct regarding the recent potential pollution of Trempealeau County drinking water by a frac sand mining company: ” Frac sand mine may have contaminated drinking water. “
This is a powerful video.
My own thoughts on the impact of Act 10 on public employees are well-documented, but Monologues of Dissent summed up my thoughts perfectly. This is my boat, and the boat of so many other state workers who were barely getting by prior to the “modest concessions” and cuts imposed […]
I blame Gov. Scott Walker and his pro-business DNR for this.
There is concern over the safety of drinking water in part of Trempealeau County.
This comes after a frac sand mine near Independence was shut down and is now being investigated for three different violations that go against its permit with the county.
