  • As national and international corporations move Wisconsin jobs to other locations so go the "the butcher, the baker and candlestick maker."
    Gilly's Frozen Custard is closing in Sheboygan despite a choice location by Lake Michigan. Two full time and a dozen seasonal employees are joining the several hundred seeking work from the recently closed Keewaunee Nuclear Center.
    Weber's Bakery of Lodi is gone after 93 years. Steven Weber says, "We don’t have the business. We keep cutting employees and cutting hours. The last day with the old workers, we’ll sit around, eat and cry.”
    Suettinger's Hardware of Two Rivers is closing after 162 years, yes it's 162 years, of business by the same family.
    Okay, all together now, "Scott Walker, where are the 250,000 jobs you promised?"

  • Out at $39.40 after being patient for like 13 years and made a small profit through dollar cost averaging of the dividend reinvestment. Already reinvested some in Proctor & Gamble and it's up over a point since my purchase and enjoying 7% dividend increase.

    Sixty workers at the South Milwaukee plant are being booted. Two sixty were booted last summer at the plant and are now running out of severance benefits. Don't expect the jobs to come back, China is producing better mining equipment and the mining companies know it. Being Cornish you know these things.

    Milwaukee where Scott Walker ruled the county is now seeing the demise of its YMCA. $30 million in debt and unable to pay expenses this fall is facing the likely hood of closings its doors. The best scenario is closing many of the facilities. No word how many will go jobless.
    Seriously, what to pick for the daily job loss announcement is getting difficult, I may have to post several times a day to keep up with the announcements.
    Okay, all together everybody, "Scott Walker, where are 250,000 jobs you promised?"

    Techline of Waunakee is closing after 43 years, 93 jobs gone. Oshkosh Corp is laying off 760.
    Where is the revenue coming from for this billion dollar surplus, Walker? You need job growth, income growth and increased spending, none of which is happening on your watch.

    Talked to a department head at the UW-Madison. The dean told her last year to prepare for a nuclear event. They're merging her department with another, firing the administrator, secretaries, grant writers, research staff, no hiring of new faculty or filling vacant faculty positions etc. Meanwhile the UW-Madison made a $127k, do nothing job for a Walker crony and $100,000 annual pay increase for the football coach.

    Wonder how Marshall Erdmann's other business, designing medical facilities, is doing if the business to make the furniture to fill them is closing.

  • Techline, the manufacturer of office furniture using computer driven machinery for the tech and medical industries, is shutting down. Ninety three in the Waunakee business well now be jobless.

    No need to pay this dead GI's pension, Social Security and health care. Let's let Paul Ryan in on it!
    A 21-year-old Lincoln man who died in a handgun accident Friday evening was described as a fun-loving gun aficionado by his friends and family.
    A 21-year-old Lincoln man who died in a handgun accident Friday evening was described as a fun-loving gun aficionado by his friends and family.

    Jeffrey Felty said his son grew up around firearms and had been taught proper technique since he was a child. He went to a firing range often and always took safety precautions.

    Like his father, Justin Felty recognized the beauty in firearms .

    On Friday, Justin Felty planned to go to a concert at the Bourbon Theatre and went to his best friend's apartment to hang out beforehand, said family friend Benjamin Cosier.

    Former Northeast High School classmate Brannen Faulkner was showing Felty the handgun he had just purchased when he accidentally fired it in his apartment near 50th and R streets about 7:30 Friday evening, Lincoln police said. The shot hit Felty in the chest.

    Justin Felty recently was discharged from the U.S. Army and was an artillery specialist at Fort Hood, his father said.

    “He knew how to use a gun. That’s what makes this so hard.”

    He said his son loved to tell jokes and spend time with his friends.

    Justin Felty introduced his firearms hobby to Faulkner, 22, after he returned to Lincoln from the army, his dad said.

    The two were like brothers, and Jeffrey Felty said his family has no ill feelings toward Faulkner.

    “I’m not going to forgive him because there’s nothing to forgive,” he said. “It was a total accident.”

    Faulkner bought the gun legally just hours before the accidental shooting and may not have known how to use it, police Capt. David Beggs said Friday evening.

    “If he’d known there was a loaded gun inside that apartment I’m sure he (Justin) would’ve said something,” Cosier said.

    Jeffrey Felty said authorities have told him no charges will be filed.

    According to the shooter, "It smelled bad, real bad." Major John Petomane, Marine spokesman, said "The dead guard's flatulence was due to his PTSD and we need billions of your tax dollars to treat these jerks before we send them back to the food service industry."
