So Fox News is the president’s propaganda machine. Donald Trump hears comments from his favorite Fox News commentators on current events, and he will call in to have some chosen items for them to pass on as legitimate news.
It seems to me we are living in a politically polarized society in which no one has any desire to find common ground. Both of the mainstream political parties are becoming more and more extreme and less and less tolerant of anything different.
Kudos to our wonderful VA Health Care facilities in southeast Wisconsin
I just watched the nightly news. I see the president now wants to ban flavored e-cigarettes because recent deaths presumed to be due to these products have been kids of the same age as his son. He states it’s become personal.
Our country already had a famous president referred to in history as the Great Emancipator, acclaimed for his statesmanship and noteworthy accomplishments. I have come to the conclusion that we now have a president who will be remembered in history as the Great Destroyer.
A 2005 pre-football game debate between analysts Steve Young and Michael Irvin centered around the possible decline in Brett Favre’s passing ability. The discussion concluded with Irvin’s iconic comment, “Only Father Time is undefeated.”
Kenosha garbage disposal is rude and unprofessional. The garbage man for our home took a used box of kitty litter, (that we had on our can for disposal), and dumped the litter and feces onto the road.
In response to Jonah Goldberg’s recent column, climate change is certainly a crisis, and whether it truly qualifies as an existential one is hardly the most pressing immediate concern.
Community development is always an exciting topic to me. I had a vision of an Environmental Education Center. It could serve those purposes — community development, housing and homeless needs.
I would like to express my gratitude for your recent coverage of our Laborfest celebration on Labor Day. The article concerning the selection of two women as Labor Persons of the Year provided a detailed description of the recognition given to them at Laborfest, as well as the speeches made …
President Trump is right to call for the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank and I hope our elected officials, like Senator Johnson, will continue to support him in his efforts.
Last week I heard very sad news. The Bartley House announced it will soon close its doors. On Friday, Sept. 20, they will serve their last meals. That will be over 60 years of providing excellent food and service to local citizens and the many others who came to enjoy Missie’s great menu ite…
The polls. Ha ha. Or, lolololololol.
After reading the article about the car show fundraiser for wounded veterans being cancelled for future events, I was disgusted beyond words at the city officials.
Recent mass shootings, once again, bring everyone to attention, and there is a flurry of calls for action. If history follows, soon President Trump, Congress, and the public will fade in their support for gun control, funding for mental health services, and/or campaigns to educate the public…
I commute via Sheridan Road. As most know, this road turns into Alford Park Drive near Carthage College and the lake. During both the a.m. and p.m. commute, Alford Park Drive can be mayhem. The speed limit is 35 mph.
The world needs a lot of things right now. But more than ever, it needs more saints.
The other day I was headed to have my car fixed. But my tire went out on me. I pulled over and put my lights on. A lady stopped to help, but the sheriff’s squad stopped to help me.
I’m writing in response to John Hoefflin’s letter in Wednesday’s VOP. He is wrong on several fronts.
It still amazes me that for the single largest employer in Kenosha, the hospital downtown has absolutely the worst streets adjacent to it.
I like to have fun with my grandsons during summer break. Anderson pool is a great choice because it offers a variety of pool sizes and slides.
My husband Jim and I attended the Kenosha County Fair early on Saturday. This gave us the time to see the exhibits, displays, projects and food vendors at a leisurely pace without big crowds.
A few weeks ago I was scheduled for jury duty. I reported when asked, to the courthouse. As I drove around to find a parking place, I realized that the only place I could find was in the parking ramp.
I’d like to thank a very special family.
My home is on a “widows corner.” That is when the men with their factory jobs have died, leaving widows and their reverse mortgages behind — fair game for the savvy developers to realize the profit and new factories move in.
Yelling “he’s friendly”
Air conditioners are on in summer because of the heat. Furnaces are on in winter because of the cold.
Congratulations to the committee that put together an amazing women’s Kenosha city open golf tournament.
The men of the Allied Expeditionary Force World War I developed the idea of the American Legion which will celebrate its 100th anniversary in the United States.
The recent editorial on our supposed overreaction to limiting the use of plastic straws seems completely unnecessary. So what if plastic straws only contribute a tiny portion to overall plastic pollution — is it not better to encourage a very simple change that almost all of us can easily make?
Schools are starting soon. Parents have a list to prepare their children for a new year. One item is backpacks.
The article regarding the appointment of Yolanda Adams to the Kenosha Unified School Board was welcome news indeed.
Recent VOPs from Trump supporters advance the president’s lies about the Mueller Report.
When Donald Trump was 13, his father, fed up with the boy’s bullying, lying, and defying, abruptly shipped him off to a boarding academy run by military veterans.
America wouldn’t have a gun violence epidemic if it weren’t so easy for paranoid fanatics and those with violent tendencies to score as many guns and as much ammunition as they think they need for whatever purpose they think they need it for.
When you schedule an appointment with a doctor, please do your best to not only arrive on time but try to be a few minutes early.
No matter a person’s age, it is important to stay mentally and physically active. Our Kenosha community offers stimulating wellness programs that provide that to us.
You may have caught us dancing all in white around a Maypole at HarborMarket in the spring. Maybe you remember us as witches dancing in downtown during Trick or Treat or caught us during our annual Halloween Pub Crawl.
Vision versus reality.
The reality of climate change is upon us. Those who stick their heads in the sand saying the climate always changes are not listening to the experts. It’s time we started listening.
Not very long ago newspaper and television reporting was viewed as a fair, unbiased and an accurate source of information. Today, politicians decry the media as purveyors of “fake news” which falsely sensationalizes or distorts news events.
In July, I compared kneeling for the flag, SCOTUS views on flag treatment, and how forcing rigorous compliance seem reminiscent of forcing the German public to use the Nazi Salute.
As a follow up to my August 6 VOP regarding the Ty’Rese West shooting, it has been pointed out to me that the body camera video I referenced as having seen on Fox 6 news was in fact not video of the West incident, rather it was video of an unrelated officer involved shooting.
Words mean something; wrong is not right. Racism is not normal.
It is with some sadness that I am writing to lament the passing of an era. Not to over dramatize the cancellation of a softball tournament, but it’s hard not to notice a change in leisure preference.
Tall Ships Kenosha was a wonderful and successful event for our community.
Kudos to the City of Kenosha and all its hard work in making the Tall Ships Festival such a success.
Here are Voice of the People submissions that have been published online and in the print product of the Kenosha News from July 17 - Aug. 6, 2019.
Our senators and representatives are on “vacation” for five weeks. Congress rarely meets for more than 95 days in a year, irrespective of the urgency or volume of the nation’s business.
This is in reaction to the July 30 article — Assembly Speaker Robin Vos hinders Democratic Assembly person Jimmy Anderson from doing is job by not allowing him to phone in for committee meetings.
Here are some photos taken by our staff and correspondents at the events that took place in Kenosha County over the weekend of Sept. 13 through Sept. 15, 2019.
There's Spygate and Deflategate, bullying and bounties. A look at some of the biggest scandals and controversies in NFL history.
