With the election for New Berlin mayor and the New Berlin School Board coming up April 7, voters are encouraged to see our candidates in person by attending a public forum, sponsored by the Rotary Club of New Berlin.
It is being held Saturday, March 14, at the New Berlin West High School library, 18695 W. Cleveland Ave.
According to Mark Belling and Mike Ellis on WISN March 4, 2009 , Governor Doyle's budget has an item in it that is a real danger to Senior Citizens who wish to stay in their homes for a long as possible. The provision would require that anyone who offers Day Care help to a person in their home, must be registered with the State of Wisconsin and must be a member of an approved organization. (Whatever that is) This will drastically raise the cost of care and possibly could affect your plans to take care of your own relatives.
Another item is the Governor's plan to raise the tax on Nursing Home beds from the present $75 to a projected $150. All these changes to the system will drive up the cost of health care to the people who live on fixed incomes who are trying to survive this recession. Then we have the proposed tax on regular hospital beds so we can get more money from the Feds who don't have any money with this stimulus nightmare that is moving on.

Following the Saturday, March 14th forum at New Berlin West High School and previous interviews with candidates, New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government (NBCRG) have decided to endorse the following candidates for New Berlin offices.
Mayor, Ted Wysocki
Alderman Dave Ament was sitting in the audience at today’s candidate forum at New Berlin West School. Isn‘t that rather hypocritical? Dave Ament, you may recall, was one of four New Berlin aldermen in 2006 who voted to limit the use of City Hall facilities to government units, thus barring citizen groups from using them. Their action put an end to voters forums at City Hall.
If you missed the candidates’ forum last Saturday -- sponsored by the Rotary Club of New Berlin -- you still have a chance to view it on tape in the City Hall chambers. But you are asked to call the clerk's office at 262-786-8610 to check when this room is available.

Ah, simple pleasures.
Our grandson loves tractors. Real tractors and toy tractors.
This guy was so clever. I answered the phone and he said, "Hi, this is Jim."
I’m thinking, this is Grandson Jim letting me know if his family will be coming over for Easter dinner.
