Long Hiatus – Thoughts on Two Years of Discerning Whitewater

This has been fairly long in the making. I took a fairly long hiatus here for a number of reasons; primarily to gain my bearings after being involved in the spring elections. Therefore after this primary election seems to be a good time to end my hiatus.  I promise you that I have no shortage … More Long Hiatus – Thoughts on Two Years of Discerning Whitewater

How did WUSD School Board Candidates Answer My Questions Regarding Restrictions and CRT?

How do Whitewater School Board Candidates feel about discussions of LGBTQ+ by school staff? How do the candidates feel about restrictions such as masks or lockdowns? Watching the candidate forum and reading their literature, I did not get a strong feel for their thoughts regarding these issues. After two years of lockdowns and masks (stopped … More How did WUSD School Board Candidates Answer My Questions Regarding Restrictions and CRT?

Why I Am Voting For Andrea Svec for WUSD School Board

I recently shared my thoughts on Jen Kienbaum as a stalwart for WUSD School Board (link here). My thoughts regarding Andrea Svec are very similar. I have met and talked with Andrea Svec a number of times. She is smart, candid, and has a genuine and mature sense of leadership that she brings to our … More Why I Am Voting For Andrea Svec for WUSD School Board

This is an Invite

Just under two years ago I started this blog. It was a relatively impulsive move. The abusive mask mandates were starting (Walworth County Board was considering) and the Whitewater Common Council had aligned themselves with the #DefundThePolice movement. (You are welcome to check my archives for these details). Somewhere along that timeline, I was invited … More This is an Invite

Not Planning on Forgetting – Jen Kienbaum

Spring Election 2022 for the Whitewater School Board has four candidates for two spots. Two common sense conservatives are on the ballot, Andrea Svec and Jen Kienbaum. Two progressives are also on the ballot, Miguel Aranda and Joseph Kromholz. I am excited about several candidates on the ballot for multiple positions this spring. I plan … More Not Planning on Forgetting – Jen Kienbaum

Tony Stark and the Lighter Side of Discerning Whitewater

I figure it is Monday morning, so let us start the week out with some lighter material from Discerning Whitewater. I have had an excellent summer. My son’s baseball games were a blast to attend. I took a couple trips with the kids to the U.P. and I think my kiddos are now properly worn … More Tony Stark and the Lighter Side of Discerning Whitewater

Time is now to put a stop to fear and masks

Here in Whitewater, we do not have much control over Biden or Evers; however locally we have the ability to resist the fear mongering by the left. Today, the CDC (LINK): The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Tuesday that fully vaccinated individuals should wear masks in certain indoor areas and advised universal masking … More Time is now to put a stop to fear and masks

City of Whitewater Using Fear to Manipulate Senior Citizens

I have an upcoming blog post entitled “None of it matters….” The premise of the post will be that without election reform, most other issues really do not matter. A minority of Americans (the Socialists/Progressives) are simply using more and more brute force to implement their will … the means to their end (political power). … More City of Whitewater Using Fear to Manipulate Senior Citizens

Perspective on the Performance of the Whitewater City Council and City Administration over the Last Year

Imagine if all of the hours spent by the Whitewater Common Council working with the Marxist 8CANTWAIT group and the adolescent university professors was spent on business development? Imagine if Cameron Clapper’s time spent evaluating redundant mask mandates was actually spent going to businesses, asking what he can do (as a public servant ??) to … More Perspective on the Performance of the Whitewater City Council and City Administration over the Last Year

Thoughts on the Whitewater School Board Election

I was prompted to the candidates submissions to the Whitewater Banner, and the stark contrast between Tom Ganser and the other two candidates. So my thoughts: Mary Zimmerman: I love her answers and her focus. Larry Kachel: I am running for the open seat on the Whitewater School Board because I believe my unique background … More Thoughts on the Whitewater School Board Election

Tom Ganser in Voting Room During Election

Progressive Whitewater School Board Candidate Tom Ganser was standing idle in the voting room at the Whitewater Armory this morning @ approximately 1115am. This morning at 1115am I took an early lunch and went to vote at the Whitewater Armory. I walked in and stood there for several minutes. There were two people apparently in … More Tom Ganser in Voting Room During Election

Intentional – Because Nothing Lasts Forever; Not Even Cold November Rain

I woke up Sunday morning feeling a little stressed. November had been a rough month. I stepped on a scale at the beginning of November to find I had gained fifteen pounds since starting to work from home in March. Work duties. Single-Dad duties. Some relationship issues that I did not enjoy. COVID. To name … More Intentional – Because Nothing Lasts Forever; Not Even Cold November Rain
