Here you go!
Here you go!
Hear the show Racine is talking about!
Well we had the election and things could be worse not sure how much worse but worse.
However, the fun times are just beginning!
Many have asked me what is the long game plan here what is this all about so I asked the Wolfman what he thought met him for Coffee he, his Pal Sonny had a nice long talk
Note do NOT play Gin with Sonny he dislikes losing.
Sonny had all kinds of ideas on how money could be made from the Good Old Boys from Machinery Row and now the Uptown Project (Are your streets paved with Gold yet?)
Sonny being dead also had insight on what to expect in the next year or so
Wisconsin State Senator Bob Wirch will retire
1) He is in his 70’s
2) spend a long time in office
3) Time to move on so others can feed
Cory Mason or as some call him The Tick
I can see why. Is there a tax he does not like or a spending idea he is not for?
Now Mr. Mason been in office doing what his masters in Madison want from the Protests over Act 10 to well doing nothing over issues others have expressed over the whole Root Works plan/Machinery Row.
Many has speculated how perhaps there is more to the story of Bob Turning retiring then meets the eye.
Time for him to get his reward!
The Boys in Madison love him he does what he is told
So as Sonny saw things he will run he will win.
That would leave his seat in the Assembly open for a young PC type Democrat kind of person to run for and win that would be
Yes, Mayor John Dickert’s new yes person, Ms Lemke in the past running the 1st CD Democrats now Alderman to make sure Mayor Dickert gets his way.
More interesting was the talking about or howling about the Journal Times NOT backing Dickert for Mayor, many think that was only a put up job to make the paper look good, that they say Dickert knew about before hand.
Easy to find out let’s see if the City moves her advertising or not.
So should be interesting fun and games to see the change over for one set feeding to another set.
Folks, IMHO its time to get the hell out of Racine if you can. You job more and more is to pay for the growing population that needs Goverment programs simply to eat or have a place to stay.
Today Village Administrator Kurt Wahlen speaks to give the official view of what is going on at Hwy V in Mount Pleasant
link to the show
About the time my questions got interesting the time was up.
Mr. Wahlen was a very good interview, I enjoyed having him on.
Questions I have unanswered for time ran out are on TID 4 in Caledonia and who stands to gain from this the most.
Questions on South Hills and any contacts from the owner of that.
I know I will be looking at Racine Water Board Meetings for more information on aspects of this “Land Grab”
Mr. Walhlen pulled no punches over shared revenue agreement with Racine and if he thought the funds where being used well or not.
More to come on this issue!
Read the Journal Times this morning? The story http://journaltimes.com/news/local/plan-would-assist-highway-v-residents-but-residents-skeptical-details/article_f620913a-ef14-5acb-bda2-373a867e6540.html
Speaks to the glory of the plan reads to me of a Press Release from King I mean Mark Gleason vs a news story then too we are talking The Journal Times who’s Publisher Mark Lewis is part of Racine County Economic Economic Development Corporation and as I and many others think, Mr. Lewis knows what to say how to spin the story.
Add to this what other local journalist will do anything to help bring the story of the land owners out? Will WJRN? The J-T?
Can’t answer that all I can do is using my Podcast give the land owners a voice
So today I will have Mr. Gale Ives on the podcast to tell of what he sees is going on
Pay attention your being fucked in the name Development too.
I will post the link to the show when its over

I was shocked to hear Mr Ives say that the Administrator told elected officials NOT to talk to voters. Very sad if true very very sad
Wild times worse to come
On today’s show I talk about if Hwy V in Mt. Pleasant WI sacrificed to the god of development..
Might the plans for Water/Sewer tossing the Farmers off the land been made long ago?
Has in fact Case Corp made plants to move into this area?
Is this idea accurate “…Highway V project will go through, because it’s been dictated up to the Governor’s Office. RCEDC acted as the intermediary – they are quasi governmental and unaccountable.
Highway V will have sewer, water, and 4 lanes with shoulders. there will be subdivisions and (hopefully) Corporate HQ and Factories there….” ?
How much money might be made by the right group of “Good Old Boys” if this
Who if anyone other the local grassroots Bloggers/ Journalists going to be covering this story? The Journal Times? WRJN? Anyone?
Here is the link to the show today http://tobtr.com/s/7453817.
Today’s show will talk about efforts to resist what some residents are calling underhanded and perhaps illegal acts to run Water/Sewer from the City of Racine to Hwy V in Mount Pleasant WI.
I am planning to have members of what I call the resistance on this show so I thought some background might be nice. This will be set up over the next few days.
Very interesting too, is how looks like more and more the tax payers are on the hook for projects they do not benefit from.
I have lots of questions to ask.
Is Mt Pleasant paying for Water/Sewage T.I.D. 4 in Caedonia
If so how does that benefit them?
Are the Open Records laws being followed
Why might a 4 lane High way be needed?
Is anything behind speculation of Case Moving to this area?
Did the City of Racine have anything to do with this idea? If so who?
