I nearly forgot to congratulate Rose Fernandez on her amazing 2nd place finish in yesterday’s primary.

It truly goes to show that grassroots politics works the best!

Good Luck Rose! We’re watching out for you!!

Random “Photo”

If you remember back about a month ago I posted a picture and asked if you could identify what and where it was.

I completely forgot about it and never gave you any information.

Well here it is…This is Cindy Guntly Memorial Airport in Franksville. Take Hwy G west until it ends and you are there! Click here for a map.

Cindy Guntly Memorial Airport is privately owned by Thomas Guntly but is open to the public. The runways are “Turf, Fair Condition. ROUGH & UNDULATING ROLLING TERRAIN” according to FAA records and during the 2006-2007 reporting period the airfield handled about 129 planes per week!

Here is another “Random Photo” thanks to Street View on Google Maps…

The dilemma for KRM supporters in Caledonia

I find it interesting that the same people that want to dip into my pocket for a train that will cost tens of millions a year just to go back and forth from Kenosha to Milwaukee do not want the Village of Caledonia to spend $4,000 to hear from the opposing side.

Lets be honest here…we have all heard “how wonderful this train will be to our community!” And that “the train will bring economic growth!” I think it is time we hear from a qualified person on the opposing side.

All I keep hearing in my head during these KRM presentations from SEWRPC and TransitNOW is:

Monorail - The Simpsons

If you didn’t catch Marge and Bart’s comments at the end I have included the lyrics here and highlighted my favorite part.

Lyle Lanley: Well, sir, there's nothing on earth Like a genuine, Bona fide, Electrified, Six-car Monorail! What'd I say?

Ned Flanders: Monorail!

Lyle Lanley: What's it called?

Patty+Selma: Monorail!

Lyle Lanley: That's right! Monorail!

[crowd chants `Monorail' softly and rhythmically]

Miss Hoover: I hear those things are awfully loud...

Lyle Lanley: It glides as softly as a cloud.

Apu: Is there a chance the track could bend?

Lyle Lanley: Not on your life, my Hindu friend.

Barney: What about us brain-dead slobs?

Lyle Lanley: You'll be given cushy jobs.

Abe: Were you sent here by the devil?

Lyle Lanley: No, good sir, I'm on the level.

Wiggum: The ring came off my pudding can.

Lyle Lanley: Take my pen knife, my good man. I swear it's Springfield's only choice... Throw up your hands and raise your voice!

All: Monorail!

Lyle Lanley: What's it called?

All: Monorail!

Lyle Lanley: Once again...

All: Monorail!

Marge: But Main Street's still all cracked and broken...

Bart: Sorry, Mom, the mob has spoken!

All: Monorail! Monorail! Monorail!

[big finish] Monorail!

Homer: Mono... D'oh!

I think everyone that saw last week’s place had the right idea even if they did quite have the name. It was the Racine Correctional Institution…located on Hwy H just south of Hwy 20.
