Come on folks its about the Water…. I share my thoughts

But first we have from:

Chinatown

 

So I was talking to Mr. X on the phone today, not talked to him for sometime and out of the blue he calls

We chatted a bit talk about the RICO Suit then to the point of the phone call that being what the point of the whole Rootworks was: that being as we saw it Control of Sale of WATER!

Mind you, we thought that Machinery Row/TIF 18 could be the largest case of Land Fraud in the History of the State of Wisconsin when all was said and done but that would pale in compassion to the money to be made over the sale of Water from Lake Michigan should Waukesha  be allowed to buy Water from Lake Michigan and then send “Treated Waist back via The Root River

imagesrs2 Treated Sewage?

 

Right now we are being told that Waukesha will need about 6-10 million Gals a day to just stay the same size and perhaps grow a bit the Water if sent back to Lake Michigan (and the Great Lakes Compact tells us that the water MUST come back) Via the Root Industrial Canal (Formerly the Root River) would generate about 6 Million a year for the Cash Staved city of Racine, then of course, Cities like to grow builders like to build developers like to rip off tax payers I mean develop(I estimate that each year Waukesha loses millions in construction/ taxes until this issues is fixed)   and that mean MORE Water brought from the Lake and treated sewage sent back via   Root Industrial Canal  so perhaps in a few years The City of Racine could get oh 10 Million a year just for allowing this

imagesrs  Treated Sewage?

and then we have this from  http://www.21stcentech.com/water-waukesha-wisconsin-symptom-freshwater-challenge/ :   Waukesha is a symptom of a much larger U.S. problem. And for the signators to the Compact the city may be the thin edge of the wedge. The U.S. mid and southwest, particularly those communities and farmlands that have experienced prolonged recent droughts see the water-rich Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin as a prime water resource. Why not divert water from the Basin to population centers like Las Vegas or Phoenix? Why not refill the Ogallala Aquifer with water from the Great Lakes? Why not raise Mississippi River water levels through a diversion canal?

Maybe Racine Under Mayor John Dickert gets a pumping station to start here to pump a few Million to other Cities who need Water maybe to pump the treated sewage back here?

Now Machinery Row costing 68 Million over time political Hacks/Pals of Mayor John Dickert might be able to scam say over time 10% or say 10 Million, but the Water sales Sewage dumping could bring in 6 Million + a year Pipe lines need to go in land may need to be bought etc how much could crooks in Goverment make their pals?

But then there is this from the same Web page …

Poor Waukesha, located in the wrong place when it comes to fighting a water war with the Compact. That’s because Chicago and its waterways which drain into the Illinois River, a tributary of the Mississippi, lie less than an hour to the south. And Chicago has the Asian carp, (seen jumping out of the water on mass in the picture below) an invasive species currently still in the Mississippi watershed that has migrated to within 160 kilometers (100 miles) of the Great Lakes. The Compact, as a result, has become hyper vigilant about any water diversion. Should the Asian carp gain access to the Great Lakes it is seen as having an even more devastating impact than the sea lamprey. And considering how unsuccessful humans have been in stopping alien species from getting to the Great Lakes, there is even greater efforts being put in place to try and succeed just once

So Waukesha is caught in a water war, even though it sits within a state that has a wealth of freshwater. Its application to draw water from Lake Michigan which requires unanimous approval from the governors and premiers of the Compact will likely fail to pass, and Waukesha will have to look elsewhere to solve its water crises

So for now our mayor who got very unhappy news about the RICO case today might be only able to find ways to scam on Machinery Row.

Please keep your eyes open this will be interesting to see go down.

What do you think?

 

One last thing if indeed the Good Old boys are planing to scam on Root Works and folks get in the way of say a 6 Million+ Pay day what will happen?

Ethics

 

 

If you read the Journal Times tonight you will see a Story on the Ethics request on Mr. Osterman.

I thought  unlike other stories the J-T has done a fair job on reporting the basic facts of what is being asked for. I did read on the 2nd page of the Press information I got yesterday that part of the request is to ask that if need be this goes to the D.A. if need be.

Of course Mr. Osterman is saying nothing to see here mind you I am not a member of the board nor am I going to even guess what the Board will or will not do.

I will say this the document is well written the document lays out step by step a case with supporting documents backing up the charges so we will see what happens.

I can only guess that IMHO there are more Ethics probes to come on all aspects of not only the Mound st issues/Rootworks but on every aspect of Machinery Row that may have or should have had oversight.

If I was on the board of Directors of Rootworks I be sure my actions could be looked it to, its not going to be pretty.

Best yet should the D.A. become interested or perhaps better yet the FBI will Machinery Row still happen? Your guess is as good as mine 1iowa

Welcome to Mr. K

 

Interesting day see we have a helper a Mr K

 

JFK_Secret_Societies_Speech_full_version__143413

Mr, K contacted me and asked to help me uncover the facts going on with the Root River (Rootworks) and the Harbor/Reefpoint Marina.

Damn got to say he knows where bodies are burred, information that the Good old Boys rather see left alone as they gin up  the works for more spending on Reefpoint after all if we build it (the Marina) they (The Boaters) will come and the streets of Racine will run with Gold.

Mr. K’s first group of papers came in tonight and after I get the chance to read/study them I will be posting my take on the information.

Just keep this in your mind since the 1980’s Racine was told that if we only had a large Marina we be so much better off we it’s 2014 are we.

How much have we spent in the past what are we planing to spend now?

WHO IS MAKING THE MONEY?

 

The Red Pill

 

So, a bit a go my wife asked me if I wished that I did not know what I thought was going on in Racine would I have been better off. Foolishly I said NO!, That I wanted to know what was going on so as Racine went to Hell I would know why.

Well, I was wrong very wrong, I wish I would have NEVER taken the Blue pill, that I never NEVER EVER started to look further into what the hell was going on in Racine better that I never looked closer into The Root River Project called Rootworks and started connecting the dots.

What I first saw as just a bit misspending by the City with the promise of if we build it They (be it “boaters to IL Tourists)   will come but never do.

A chat I can trace back to 1984 and the ending of Racine as a commercial Port to today’s RootWorks where if we only Build a Bike Path, Buy Azarian Marina, and spend a few more million on Downtown Racine the street will be lined with Gold … and that be bad enough, yet par for the course for Racine but I am thinking we got a plan going on that makes the Owens Vally in California look like well Disneyland!

So what is going on what is it all about? What is going on?

That is easy its all about well the one thing we think little about yet need so badly

 

Fresh Water Fresh Water from Lake Michigan that soon will be used to enrich our Mayor and his pals

So much to go into.Oh we are so fucked

Looks clear to me yet staff I talk to there today 3-21-14 had no clue called them back and asked them nicly to read the Law as in that might help them know whwre to look or research

Then we have the city of Racine

From the City Code

Sec. 106-4. Bulkhead lines.permanent link to this piece of content

(a)

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 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:

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.

Emphasis mine

They had no clue either both offices where  nice The City Clerk is looking for them and to cover my ass I did an open records request … “Good Afternoon

I would like a copy of the map of the  Bulkhead lines of the Root River as described in Sec. 106-4. Bulkhead lines.of the C
Racine, Wisconsin, Code of Ordinances

A PDF copy would be fine, I understand that a fee maybe charged for this and I need to be informed of this cost if any.

This may help you locate a copy of the Map.

This State Law may aid as well. 30.11(3)

How established. Whenever any municipality proposes to establish a bulkhead line or to reestablish an existing bulkhead line, the municipality shall indicate both the existing shore and the proposed bulkhead line upon a map and shall file with the department for its approval 6 copies of the map and 6 copies of the ordinance establishing the bulkhead line. The map shall use a scale of not less than 100 feet to an inch or any other scale required by the department. The map and a metes and bounds description of the bulkhead line shall be prepared by a land surveyor registered in this state. The department may require the installation of permanent reference markers to the bulkhead line. Upon approval by the department, the municipality shall deliver the map, description and ordinance to the office of the register of deeds of the county in which the bulkhead line lies, to be recorded by the register of deeds.”…

I also called My State Senator office and the DNR for further help.

Wait do not go to sleep yet the interesting times have yet to begin and boy that will be lots of fun for me but not so much for others.

 

 

First Full Day Back.

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.

Don Bolles

From http://dondevereux.com/2013/02/25/the-bolles-murder-a-case-of-curious-coincidences/

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.

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? …..

Cthulhu Comes to Racine

Cthulhu comes to Racine and that explains a lot!

cg

You see why would he not come to Racine? We are a harbor town our leader kind looks like Cthulhu

JD

Now with all the renewed interest in the Root River  and that meaning money to who I see as Dickert’s Crony pals. Why not me too?

At least my ideas do not allow 6-10 Million Gals of “Treated” Sewage to come down the Root River

rawsewage-still

Makes you proud of our City Leadership! We can trust our leaders to do the right thing! Not like the City is taking down Streetlights as our Mayor goes to trip to Mexico! Right?

So what I am thinking was to grow Mushrooms and sell them under the name of Cthulhu and the line Eat Cthulhu Mushrooms before he eats you! With a funny drawing of Cthulhu on the packaging. 

This of course gives the opportunity to do so many fun things from Comics to posts here or ever start a whole new blog about growing Mushrooms as a neat way to promote the Mushroom  growing and talk about the Root River.

Gee maybe Vandewalle some how caused   Cthullu to come to Racine in the first place?
