Conservatively Speaking

State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.

Another great cranberry year


Heading into cranberry season, Wisconsin expects to have another great fall harvest, though it will not match the record 2008 yield. 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports more berries are being exported overseas where the fruit is considered sexy.

Randy Papadellis, chief executive officer at Ocean Spray says the hot new product this year is Cranergy, an energy drink targeted to on-the-go soccer moms.

Growth in one of Wisconsin’s biggest industries is critical because it helps the entire state’s economy.
