Mayor John Dickert overlooking Racine WI ?

As readers of my other Blog Racine in Ruins may know, I am focusing on fresh water issues of Racine with some attention to Lake Michigan after all its one of the largest bodies of fresh water around so that be a part of my over watch.

So too would be Rootworks (Its hat the City calls it) and the major refocus came not only after the last city council of Racine meeting 3-18-14 but a series of phones calls about happenings about the Root River council a self appointed group chosen some how to over see the Rootwooks plan and If I understand right and I think I do get some amount of money to do so. 

I looked into what I was told found the information was right and knew if I did not talk about what was going on with the issues no one would and worse down the line after I and you are long gone no one would know the strange happenings of the Fresh Water issues of Racine.

THE BOLLES BOMBING DEEPLY CONSIDERED

…”Meanwhile, shortly before noon on June 2, 1976, a dynamite bomb was detonated by remote control beneath the car seat of Don Bolles’s Datsun sedan in a Phoenix hotel parking lot. He had gone there to meet a source named John Adamson, a local hoodlum who clearly had set him up. Bolles lived 11 more days, finally dying on June 13, 1976, following amputation of both legs and one arm.

Before losing consciousness after the blast, the reporter managed to implicate Adamson and to attribute the attack explicitly to “Emprise” and the “Mafia,” long-standing targets of his Arizona dog track inquiries. Like any experienced investigative journalist, Bolles had a good sense of where the serious risks lay among the topics on which he was working.

In the months before the car-bombing, Bolles had confided to family friend Kathy Kolbe that his investigation of possible dog track skim money going to the mob had led to a spin-off as the “big story” in which he was currently engaged. Kolbe is a prominent and bright Phoenix entrepreneur who back in the 1970s was a member of the Phoenix 40, a powerful group of local business leaders that controlled city politics. She is the ex-wife of late Phoenix Gazette columnist John Kolbe and ex-sister-in-law of U.S. Congressman Jim Kolbe of Tucson.

As Kathy Kolbe has told it, Bolles’s impending major story in 1976 involved Mafia reliance on dog track skim as the front money —  covering bribes and other start-up costs —  for a systematic diversion of gold and other precious metals from Motorola plants in the metropolitan Phoenix area. At the time many millions of dollars in gold per year were being used as plating on circuit boards and in other electronic components. According to Kolbe, that large-scale theft operation implicated a salvage yard, evidently in Mesa, and something with “Gemini” in its title”…..

Before I go further, actives of myself and other such as those behind the RICO lawsuit on Mayor John Dickert and others of his associates, I feel may disrupt quite the gravy train and IMHO when millions are at stake wild times may just happen.

So be very interesting times

But back to my first day

Went to get a map of the     Bulkhead line of the Root River what is that you ask?

From Wikipedia Bulkhead line is an officially set line along a shoreline, usually outside of the dry land, to demark a territory allowable to be treated as dry land, to separate the jurisdictions of dry land and water authorities, for construction and riparian activities, to establish limits to the allowable obstructions to navigation, etc.

So having read where I might find them : “

North of Root River. The bulkhead line of that part of the shore of Lake Michigan north of Root River, is established and determined to be as follows:

Begin in centerline of Hubbard Street at the east line of Michigan Boulevard; thence along said centerline north 89 degrees 35 minutes east 1,120 feet; thence north 34 degrees east 340 feet to a point on concrete pier, said point being the north end and beginning of lake shoreline; thence south 34 degrees west 340 feet; thence south 13 degrees 10 minutes west 445 feet; thence south 0 degrees 25 minutes west 225 feet; thence south 34 degrees 55 minutes east 366 feet to northeast corner of concrete wall at United States Coast Guard Station; thence (along face of said concrete wall) south 5 degrees 20 minutes east 83 feet to face of steel sheet piling; thence (along face of said steel sheet piling) north 79 degrees 50 minutes east 85 feet to east end of steel sheet piling; thence (along face of said steel sheet piling) south 10 degrees 10 minutes east 20 feet to face of steel sheet piling on north side of Root River. The above-described line is located entirely in the east ½ of Section 9, Township 3 North, Range 23 East, Racine County, Wisconsin. The last described point is the south end of designated lake shoreline north of Root River. The above-described line is more particularly shown on the map hereby made a part hereof, which map is on file in the city clerk’s office.

(b)

South of Root River. The bulkhead line of that part of the shore of Lake Michigan south of Root River, is established and determined to be as follows:

Begin at a point on the north line of Fifth Street (bearing south 81 degrees 11 minutes west) 457 feet east of the east line of Lake Avenue, said point being the south end and beginning of lake shoreline; thence north 22 degrees 28 minutes west 464.05 feet to a point in the centerline of Fourth Street (said point being 345.7 feet east of the east line of Lake Avenue and bearing of said centerline of Fourth Street is south 81 degrees 07 minutes west); thence continuing north 22 degrees 28 minutes west 210.6 feet to a point (said point being 295 feet east of the east line of Lake Avenue and 243.4 feet south of the south line of Third Street produced east of Lake Avenue); thence north 6 degrees 19 minutes east 252.2 feet to a point (said point being 360 feet east of the east line of Lake Avenue on the south line of Third Street produced east of Lake Avenue); thence north 81 degrees 21 minutes east, along the south line of Third Street produced east of Lake Avenue, 375 feet; thence north 6 degrees 25 minutes west 487 feet; thence north 40 degrees 05 minutes east 405 feet to the southeast corner of concrete pier; thence (along face of concrete pier) north 0 degrees 00 minutes 14 feet to face of concrete pier on south side of Root River. The above-described line is located entirely in the east ½ of Section 9, Township 3 North, Range 23 East, Racine County, Wisconsin. The last-described point is the north end of designated lake shoreline south of Root River. The above-described line is more particularly shown on the map hereby made a part hereof, which map is on file in the city clerk’s office.

I went and ask the Clerk’s office for a copy or to be able to look at one to make notes.

I was told by the first staffer that she had no idea what I was talking about even after I cited the above. She got her supervisor who said the same thing when asked but took my Email and said she look into this further and get back to me. In the two hours between that time and the close of the day I have heard nothing, should I not by COB Friday I will call   to follow up then call The State DNR you see State Law coves this too and I am more then  willing to talk to the DA about this map

Then I went to the Harbor commission meeting to learn more about the dredging and ramp rebuilding on 5th St.

Looks like Belle City Marina is going to be filled in. The other interesting note was that members of this group think that less then 50% of Reef Point will be rented this year, but wait are we not told that boater from IL will save Racine? …..
