OK. The Sconz is back in action. I did a couple posts on Friday but the first brunch links signifies the true return to business-as-usual. Got a lot to look forward to. Keep a look out for coverage of the Spring elections tomorrow. I'll be keeping my ear to the pulse of the Dane County board. High of 68, low of 50 with some possible showers.
A delicious sandwich from JA's Soul Food is for brunch today.
Find out who your candidates for the board are, where you should vote, and hopefully why you should vote!
Endorsements for District 5 from both student newspapers. Cardinal supports Eicher, no surprise there. However, two members of the board dissent and endorse Johnson.
God Bless the Badger Herald: "We find no compelling reason to endorse either candidate.
Here are the State Journal's endorsements from a couple weeks ago.
$38 in property taxes on the average Dane County home is the keynote issue for conservatives running for County Board. Interesting how they always leave it to the press to do the math?
Rep. Brett Davis introduces a press conference, excuse me, bill, to halt construction of the Madison-Milwaukee rail line. These antics really should be reserved for Glenn Grothman, but Scott Walker attended in support too.
The State Journal has an interesting article on corporations hosting political candidates. The Citizens United decision is increasing corporate interest in campaigns.Thank God. UW Student Government committee voices suspicion of campaign to build a gigantic new gym.
Brothers Bar will have its day in court this week as it butts heads with UW over eminent domain.
The conservative Supreme Court upholds statutes that force people who have never been convicted of sex crimes of registering as sex offenders.
A law to automatically register people to vote when they get driver's licenses is making its way through the legislature. The GOP is against it.
Wow, apparently I was not really the first "Sconz." "Asian Wisconzine" was a magazine that recently shut down.
Even Bryon Eagon voicing disappointment over the mayor's Central Library plan.
This is pretty impressive. The city filled 20,000 less potholes in 2009 than in 2008. Mayor Dave says it's because the city is preventing instead of filling. Granted, I'm sure there are some skeptics (please comment if you're one of them).
Haha. This probably represents the most realistic challenge to Paul Ryan in November.
UW among higher ed "heavy hitters" in D.C. lobbying. Hell yeah.
The 34 Dems who voted against health care reform stir anger but not opposition from Democrats in their district.
"Only 1 percent of Americans could summon his name." OK, are you a member of that elite 1 percent? Then who is the 89-year-old Supreme Court justice appointed by Gerald Ford and considered the leader of the liberal bloc on the court?
A Madison Lutheran Church wants to "put the cross back in Christianity." Contrast that with this article about Christians in Denmark and Sweden, where religion has almost nothing to do with spirituality or a commitment to dogma.
