New Berlin School Board Member Susan Manley filed non-candidacy papers, signally her intent not to run for re-election. See news report.
It didn’t surprise me one bit.
While Senator Mary Lazich’s Jan. 4 blog calls Assembly Minority Leader James Kreuser’s words deplorable and says they should be retracted, she’s turned a blind eye to the deplorable words of her own legislative aide Kevin Fischer. Where’s Sen. Lazich’s public rebuke of Fischer’s antics and her insistence he retract his words and apologize?
Kevin Fischer, Sen. Lazich, and Greg Kowalski are regular bloggers on FranklinNOW. Kowalski, a college student who just turned 21, is an appointed member of Franklin’s Environmental Commission. Kowalski’s blog is titled Today’s Concerns.
Although Fischer has refused to let Kowalski post comments on Fischer’s blog, he floods Kowalski’s with numerous caustic comments, many of which are insults directed at Kowalski and his blog’s readers.
For example: Click on Kowalski’s Jan 3 blog entry titled Some commenting issues and you’ll find that Fischer posted comments on it 38 times, starting from 8:51 pm and ending at 1:12 am. THIRTY-EIGHT! Fischer’s 4- hour marathon of submitting mean-spirited, insolent remarks included calling Kowalski “Pillsbury Doughboy”, “Cheesecake Boy”, “cheesecake-breath”, “cry-baby”, and various other personal attacks. Far from being a wit, Fischer comes across as an immature, sarcastic bully picking on a college kid.
The NFL playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks is today. Go Pack Go!!!
A few months ago (at the September 24 New Berlin School Board Meeting), NBPS Administration presented a slew of facility projects, which it described as “dire” facility needs, “important” and “immediate” ---but which had not been budgeted for.
The New Berlin Community Center located at 14750 W. Cleveland Avenue, New Berlin will be celebrating its Grand Opening, official ribbon-cutting ceremony today, Saturday January 19 at 10 am.
To the disappointment of Green Bay Packers fans, the New York Giants beat the Packers in overtime at Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
Our nation honors Martin Luther King, Jr., who was a remarkable activist, civil rights leader, and orator.
His words were inspiring and powerful.
The New Berlin-Muskego NOW newspaper, Jan. 3 edition, had a wonderful article about our son Jason’s wedding. Within a week, my husband and I received a “SAW YOU IN THE NEWS!” card in the mail. A handwritten message from Rep. Mark Gundrum’s Office was inside, conveying congratulations to us and expressing best wishes to Jason and Christine. Also enclosed was a typed note, which referred to Rep. Gundrum’s deployment to Iraq and advised, “ Please feel free to contact us in his absence, and we will be happy to assist you in any way we can.”
Wasn’t that attentive of Rep. Gundrum’s staff?!!! It was a nice gesture that sends a positive message to constituents and community. That's an example of good public relations. Mark Gundrum should be proud of his staff members.
Vern Bentley’s published letter (Jan. 10, Waukesha Freeman) was a spurious attack on Alderman Bill Moore that distorted facts and Moore’s record.
