Talk about overreaction. Coming to a talk radio discussion near you: Oconomowoc is installing unisex bathrooms in every school in the district because one transgender kid walked into a bathroom when some other kid was using it. Parents of a first grade girl at Summit Elementary School were upset recently after learning that a 6-year-old […]

Ann Althouse took a photo-walk of the UW-Madison campus and came across the following sign, Althouse, calling the sign, “horrifying,” comments, “Fast Trains Are Cool.” As if the government should provide us with everything, even coolness. Big Brother loves you, and Big Brother will also supply the coolness that’s currently missing in your gray little life. Wow! […]

Michael Horne, one of the more interesting writers on the left side of politics, has a new blogging home. He offers an opinion where the “high-speed” rail’s maintenance facility should be, if it’s ever built. Madison! The city that can’t find the screwdriver, and wouldn’t know which end to use. The train shops should be […]

Our friends at the state DOT have decided to toss the horse’s head into the bed of the Oconomowoc Common Council, saying the train station was a take-it-or-leave-it proposition. The state Department of Transportation has dropped plans for a high-speed rail station in Oconomowoc, claiming city officials said they didn’t want one.But city officials disputed […]

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s headline writers seem to have trouble distinguishing between light rail and the proposed high-speed rail.  First it was the story on last night’s meeting in Brookfield (which seems to be cut off right before they get to the content of the meeting.)  Then it was today’s article about Governor Jim Doyle’s […]

A long, long time ago, in a land far to the west, a stranger walked into the little sleepy community of Oconomowoc. He told the natives, “O’ mighty Oconomowocians. I see greatness in your future. I see many people bringing you gold and riches, clothes and spices, thrones and palaces, fame and greatness, if you […]

Tomorrow night Oconomowoc is going to have another meeting on the future of Pabst Farms. Oconomowoc Mayor Maury Sullivan is no longer drinking the developer Kool-Aid and no longer believes that Pabst Farms is being developed as a regional attraction with high-end retail. Sullivan said the outdoor mall has been reduced to a “strip retail […]

Welcome to the Idiot Politician of the Week, where each week we sift through the politicians and pick the one stand out idiot that causes us to wonder how they feed themselves, let alone get elected. This week we may have discovered how some of the idiots get elected, with their idiot party’s help. In […]

Last December, Town of Oconomowoc Chairman Robert Hultquist sent a letter along with the property tax bill to his constituents. Most of it was the usual blather that hardly softens the blow of seeing how much local government partially costs. But this time Hulquist decided to add an endorsement for two members of town board […]
