So

11a1puzzled look copy

 

 

So what is going on?

 

Good question!

After much thought and reflection,I think, it’s time  to closely to look at the biggest issue in the Racine area, that being WATER.

Yes, water something we do not think about much, after all we live by one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the world.

Yet, water plays a huge role in the area, such as:

Use of Water fees to shore up the failing city fiances

Use of the running of water/sewer into Caledonia TID 4  from Mt Pleasant to not only create more paying customers to the City of Racine Water department but at the same time by the use  of special assessment to the land owners being forced to pay for this water/sewer work.

Then of course we still have the whole Machinery Row “Development” to look at.

We will look at only the issues of Water uses here, not other issues such as falling property prices, increasing crime or other issues.

We will let others do that should they wish to do so.

FYI you will notice my writing is poor with misspellings and poor grammar sorry. Have taken steps to do a better job in this area.

Something else will be the use of tools like Periscope to help cover stories that I hope to cover here.

Be interesting, be fun, best of all, help you understand what is going on

 

Was it good for you?

Have not posted much here as you can tell.

So I though an update was in order, if you live in Racine WI  you probably know that the City of Racine voted to loan $$$$ (4.5 Million) to the Developer of Machinery Row  and will buy I understand other property for this development (1 million+) so a City that has no money and must close Community  Centers take down Street lights will spend and maybe get back some of the 6 Million the City of Racine will be spending on this project interesting who will get helped from this. Will it be the Homeless or the Mom trying to feed her kids? Maybe a long term unemployed former   City of Racine Union Worker now out of a job and been looking for one perhaps for years…

This is Racine what do you think?

When I have the time and some help with Grammar I will do a chart on who is getting paid from this

By the way was the Anal Sex good for you? Thinking the Mayor loved giving it to you do not worry I think there is more to come

Have a great day!

 

As the Rico hearing that sets up discovery efforts on the case has come and gone and papers starting to be served next week, ( Oct 2014) this should be very interesting to see what comes out of this over time we need to recall that locally there are efforts to expose what is seen by more then a few a corruption we have this

Makes interesting reading.

I understand that documents/letters have been mailed to local and State leadership, as well as the IRS.

Maybe the State will come and see what the noise is all about/ maybe the IRS will ask about Taxes that might be owed?

I do not wnt to even think about how much the legal bills are for them in the RICO Case that are NOT being covered by the city yet alone the bills for anyone not covered by the City.

Could any small business owner afford a lawyer costing $200/$300 an hour? Could you?

Now should  the above cause lawyers to get busy say looking into the issued raised …

 

As The Root River is Raped….

Wow From today’s Racine Journal Times  http://journaltimes.com/news/local/local-group-heading-to-nyc-climate-change-march/article_61d1c09b-c27c-5928-b9d9-e460b7d54c65.html

Local group heading to NYC climate change march

 

The Local Group is not named but I will guess it’s 350. Org but again the group is not named and they have every right to march if they want

Interesting that this group is willing to go a march in New York but not willing to do anything when it comes to the well what I call the Rape of the Root River I guess I should call it by a better name the Root Industrial Canal, I would hope that seeing the  Root Industrial Canal, turn into well as I call it the largest Real Estate Scam in Wisconsin History this group or most Green Groups be more worried about local events., such as putting 6-8 Million Gal of “Treated Sewage” into Lake Michigan ( A day)  via the Root Industrial Canal, this would be from Waukesha pumping 6-8 Million Ga a day from Lake Michigan and how Green is that?

imagesrs2  (Treated Sewage?)

but well depending who is in this group might they be getting paid to help with the Rape of this area?

What? you mean the Local Green Groups (Or green Groups overall) can get paid off?

What do you think?  Do you have a price you sell out for? Most of us do I guess, the first 350K Cash sure could buy my home and my Wife and I be long gone from this pit of hell. Better yet 20K and I never post anything on this area of Southeast Wisconsin! I will not hold my breath

What might your price be?

Any bets that somehow Grant Funds to Root River Council are being spent on this trip?

 

 

This just in

 

I got an Email this PM with a document from the IRS this document

said ” EIN 45-1682226 doing business as the Root River Council of Racine WI has had it’s 501 c (3) Status revoked as of 15 May 2014 for not filing form 990 for the last three years

The document goes on to say how more information can be received

should this document be the real thing and I have every believe that it is true what might this mean for this group? What might this mean for another ethics  filing on Supervisor Osterman?

Might this be anther issue as per the IRS and back Taxes?

Might it play somehow into the RICO case?

Very interesting

Let the Gold Rush Begin, are you in line yet?

If I understand right our City Fathers will vote on TIF 18 this week it is expected to pass once this is in place will allow, as I understand events, Machinery Row to move further along. At that time we will see some activity take place perhaps even some constriction happen (Or perhaps like Team Porter’s not so much but what did happen to the money spent on parts of team Porter’s…)

As I understand events no force on Earth can stop TIF 18 too many have too much riding on this Gold Rush such as:

If the Condos get going who will get the Marble contracts?

Who will be the Realtors?

Will any of the Above sit on the Root River Council?

Will they be pals of Mayor John Dickert? Will they have given money to his campaigne?

Will M.J.’s be forced to sell out? If so being a Gas Station who will write Grants looking to fund that part of the massive clean up of Machinery Row?

Think of the Millions flowing into to this project IMHO far more then the 60 some odd Million   talked about in the Racine Newspaper

As you know I am worried that like much of what happens in Racine the Good Old boys will be in line to get some for again IMHO I think that this whole project is to enrich them vs do anything good for the vast majority of the City God forbid that Blacks or Hispanics get jobs from this or inner city kids come away with the idea that in the City of Racine opportunity is open to all.

God not that, next someone might want to open a Bar Downtown that might think that a Hip Hop club might do well in that area! That sure would spoil the Image of Racine being for the rich and White! Can’t have that! Keep away all the Boaters from IL that are pounding on the doors of our Mayor demanding Condos overlooking a dredged Root River flowing faster with 6-8 Million Gals of “Treated Sewage” a day from  Waukesha Oh the joys of Development. 

Might somehow our Mayor be a paid Consultant or perhaps the Lobbing company he worlks for is and he is getting a commission for that connection?   After all this is Racine!

Do not worry! I too plan to take my place in line for the Gold Rush! I will do so by a film about the links to Lovecraft https://www.facebook.com/pages/Shadow-over-The-Belle-City/358190017678007   and not only selling the film and VOD views but!!  Cool swag!! Charms!  Neat cool T Shirts!

Why not get together with your pals and see what YOU can come up with!
