She's Kidding Right??????????

To quote a good friend of mine........... I'm calling SHENANIGANS!!!!!!!

Now she wants to vote on large projects that effect the city (click here for the post). I wish chasin hadn't deleted her old posts when she went off line for those few days. I do know that she was very much against the 5 million dollar advisory referendum. Now that Lake Geneva defeated a new development she'd like to vote on large projects the city may be considering.

Freaking Incredible.

We should give the developers of the Mirbeau-Hummel plan a call. Sounds like a hell of a plan to me.

Evansville Getting Cable Alternative

Although no date has been established at&t will be offering an alternative to Charter and Satellite providers in Evansville and near by communities. Click here for the article from the Gazette.

Competition is welcome but there is a particular concern. The "boxes" being installed take up an area 8 foot by10 foot. Click here for a picture. I understand right of ways but I can't imagine anyone wanting to look at one of these in their yard. I hope our City Council will take the same steps Janesville has to lessen the impact of the cabinets.

Evansville Booming?

You wouldn't believe it if you listened to some but think about this...........

Evansville Health Club: Opened in October and has already had to expand. Smaller than some in Madison or Janesville? Yes, they do however offer all the same equipment at a better price with 24 hour access.

Evansville Furniture: Nice to have something like this in town. Wish they would have went in at the old Dollar Store. Looking forward to checking them out.

The New Liquor Store: Looking forward to a nice wine selection and some more micro brews.

Surf 4 Ink: Office Supply Store. I'll bet there are some happy business people in town. Nice not to have to drive to Janesville or Madison for some simple supplies.

The Cobblestone Inn: Our first Hotel. Man, it's going up quick.

Tanglewood Tavern: Here's something Evansville really needed a banquet facility. This goes well with the hotel. We can keep some of the wedding business in town. Nothing wrong with another place to have a beer and dinner either.

Not to mention the expanding nursing home, the crushing facility and the still possible bio-diesel plant.

While I think we'd all like to see some more activity downtown these are all positives for our community. All fill some needs and most will provide good to decent jobs.

Seems we are doing a pretty good job of attracting new business.

What would you like to see more of in Evansville? Retail? Specialty? Services?

Stop the War, Beat a Cripple

Got to love these peace loving libs.

From the New York Post.


A man heckling First Lady Laura Bush and daughter Jenna outside the 92nd Street Y was arrested after he punched a wheelchair-bound girl whose parents has told him to shut up, authorities said yesterday. German Talis, 22, was shouting obscenities at the Bushes, who were leaving the building Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Wendy and John Lovetro and their daughter Maureen, 18, who has cerebral palsy.

“He began yelling about Iraq and Iran at Jenna Bush. She was waving at the crowd. I told the guy, ‘What are you doing? Shut up. This is about a child and books,’ ” said John Lovetro. “He was unperturbed. I said, ‘Get out of here! You’re being a moron!’ “

The next thing he knew, Talis was allegedly punching Maureen - a fan of the first lady since meeting her in 2004.

“I heard my daughter hysterical yelling, ‘He’s hitting me!’ ” said Wendy Lovetro.

“He punched her on the shoulder blades, but that wasn’t enough,” she said.

“He punched her on the shoulder blades, but that wasn’t enough,” she said.

“My husband pushed the wheelchair away from him and he reached beyond my husband and began pounding my daughter in the thigh.”

The two men fought as the president’s family drove off. Cops broke them up and busted Talis on charges of assault and resisting arrest.

Maureen was not seriously injured.

Apparently She doesn't Like My Blog.

Oh well. I can't please everyone. Click here for the post from the u.w. grad.

I wonder what her criteria is?

Did You Catch the Real Coffee Ad ?

If not it read like this...........

This will be the final advertising dollar we will spend at the Review, until apologies to Mary Weigand are published prominently, a clear editorial page is established and there is a demonstrated commitment to unbiased reporting. We are tired of the homophobia and shoddy journalism.

You've got to hand it to them. They are standing up for what they believe in. I'm guessing Kelly or Tammy won't be getting any free coffee any time soon.

This Chicks a WINNER!
