On Federal court orders more access to GOP computers
I understand how some can be upset by the redistricting, and want to make changes. I honestly have no problem with that. I’m struggling with what information might still be on the ‘Republican-controlled’ computers?.And I am not so naive to believe that lines could have been drawn to benefit a particular political leader or party. “Battles” over boundaries have been a part of our history for over 200 years..But I’m justwonderin how we have drifted away from using positive energy for change, and toward the negative aspect of “let’s sue someone”. I sincerely hope that our schools are teaching tomorrow’s leaders to work for change, and NOT teaching them to spend countless dollars on going to court - in this case to get access to a computer that was used in 2011..And I’m just wondering, in who’s best interest does this group feel they are acting? If there is a group of residents that feels they are not being properly represented by their elected officials, don’t THEY have the option of electing someone else? If that same group of residents feels that the boundary in which they live, unfairly denies them the opportunity to elect the political representative of their choice, don’t THEY have the option of working to move the line?.What does bother me, are those ‘outsiders’ who come to our state, our cities, and our neighborhoods, to bring about the change that THEY want, disregarding the residents themselves. .Justwondering… can’t we work our way back to a position of being progressive? Of working toward positive change? Of electing people who represent US? Of teaching our children that using the courts to bring legal action against someone should be the LAST resort, instead of the first?
On Delavan seeking cure for ambulance service
Almost all of the decisions about what we need here in Delavan, have been made by the Delavan Rescue Squad. They wanted to operate on their own (without municipal oversight or control) so they created their own ‘Non-Profit’ Corporation. They wanted to be Paramedics, so they incurred the expense of training to be Paramedics. They wanted to be paid, so they decided to pay themselves. They wanted new uniforms, so they bought new uniforms. They wanted new equipment, so they bought new equipment. They wanted new rigs, so they bought new rigs. They wanted a new building, so they had a new building built….Justwonderin, but if this service is for the benefit and protection of us folks here in Delavan, don’t you think it would have been nice if WE would have been asked about what WE want? Now, it appears that THEIR “wants”, financial inabilities, lack of financial planning and mismanagement will result in US not having emergency medical protection..Justwonderin, but how did this happen in the first place? Why has THIS municipal service been allowed to operate without any direct oversight or control? We would never think of allowing our Police Department to set up their own ‘Non-Profit’ Corporation. .The Delavan Rescue Board, and members of the ambulance service, are individually, all good-hearted people. But I’m left justwonderin how their collective mismanagement is going to affect my future emergency medical care…

Let me guess.... Walkers fault?
On Fifteen home sales close last week in Lake Geneva
Are we so desperate for news, that we are picking up details from personal blogs, writing a story, and presenting it as news? This might be interesting, but I question if it rises to the level of news.

On Crash kills 9-year-old on way to school
I am so sorry. This little boy had so much to look forward to. The loss to his family, the community, and the world is immeasurable. I wish there was something we could have done to have protected him. Our thoughts and prayers will be with his mother and brother who apparently were able to survive the accident. He has a wonderful smile. I’m justwonderin what we could have done to have made a permanent change in the life of Jeremy Dees.
On Paper wants Lake Geneva alderwoman’s e-mails
"Regional News Editor Lisa Seiser said the newspaper had no choice but to ask the court for help."
We vote for our elected officials - when did we vote to designate the Regional News Editor to be our watchdog? Just wondering, but isn't it a little arrogant for the Editor to place herself in the position of being 'our watchdog'?
Just wonderin, but I think I am capable of 'watching' the actions of my elected officials. I didn't elect Ms. Seiser to do it for me.
Last thought, how deep is the thought process of someone that says they had "no other choice". Seems to me that life presents a LOT of alternatives.
Unless of course the real reason is to sell newspapers....
