Road conditions becoming treacherous in Chippewa Valley - Tuesday, 1/12/2019

Eau Claire Roads

This is getting tedious and I'm beginning to think I should just keep promoting this to the top. Road conditions are again terrible through the entire state, and reports are coming in of I-94 being shut down in several places due to accidents. Please do not travel if you can avoid it, and if you do go somewhere be extremely careful.

No Quarters for Kathy

Kathy Bernier
Shame on you, Kathy Bernier. Don't you for a moment try to normalize the prospect of toll roads in Wisconsin. For the first 100 years of automobile travel in Wisconsin, we have ensured that our taxes are enough to provide good roads.

Erin Link - Finding the Right Fit

Hey! It's the first week of February, and we just got done with the polar vortex of DOOM! Seeing negative forty on my thermometer is a bit frightening. Thankfully these cold temps didn't last for long, and all the farm critters were tucked away and did just fine. The geese even opted to sleep outside on hay piles during this cold snap. They are such hardy little critters!

Keeping On - Help!

The Beatles - Help!

As you have probably noticed, life on this web site has slowed somewhat the last few months. Those of you who know me personally are probably aware that we're dealing with serious family health issues at Cruiskeen Lawn, and that has made it difficult to get a lot of work done, much less make long-range plans.

Anti-Trust Panel at Wisconsin Farmers Union Convention

Antitrust panel at WFU State Convention 2019

The Wisconsin Farmers Union held their annual convention last week. The convention is always a whirlwind of democracy in action as the members vote to set their policy priorities for the coming year, and discuss issues affecting farmers for lobbying action throughout the coming year. This year's convention featured a panel on monopolies and antitrust legislation, including how they affect farmers.

Scott Walker's high-profile and polarizing tenure as governor allowed Wisconsinites across the political spectrum to agree on at least one thing: they felt sure about who he was and how they viewed him. Now, with a new governor in office, many of the state's voters, including staunch partisans, appear to be less sure about their opinion.

In a report from Reuters this morning, Louis Woo, special assistant to Foxconn Chief Executive Terry Gou suggested that plans for Foxconn manufacturing in Wisconsin may be scaled back again, and may in fact not include any manufacturing at all.

Jeff Smith - Walk the Talk for Bipartisanship

I’ve said it. Governor Evers said it. Republican leaders said it - “We need to work together.”

A number of clichés come to mind as we talk about working together. “It’s easier said than done” or “Talk is cheap.” I prefer “walk the talk.”
