LAUREL — To Kenosha and Racine firefighters who will share their cooking skills and compete to lead off the HarborPark Jazz, Rhythm & Blues Festival on Aug. 17. Each team will prepare their secret picnic-style recipes and one side dish, and the audience will judge the winner. It all bene…
This letter is to applaud the Village of Bristol Board’s efforts in deciding to install emergency address marker signs throughout our village. They definitely enhance the ability of emergency responders to arrive at a given address much quicker.
No one who has more that a first-grade education will be surprised that the current resident of the White House made yet another racist rant on minority members of Congress. He told them to “go back” to where they came from. Very presidential.
Excitement is growing in anticipation of the Tall Ships celebration our city will be hosting the first weekend in August. It will prove to be one to remember for all of Kenosha residents and visitors from near and far who come to enjoy the spectacle of these beautiful ships.
I just watched another St. Jude Children’s Hospital commercial and want to voice my support for their wonderful organization. They save children’s lives while preventing financial ruin to families due to critical healthcare costs.
I would like to alert everyone who drives on Interstate 94 about a road hazard that can be felt but cannot be seen.
Democrats lost an election and are purging the winner and his accomplishments for political revenge. They are trying to minimize his achievements and great economy with false collusion charges in 2016, proven innocent in 2018, but the report wasn’t released until 2019, allowing midterm voter…
The July 7 VOP by Jessica Billman of Brighton, “How can this inhumane treatment continue?” was interesting for the fact that I agree with most of her opinions, in general.
I have worked in kindergarten for over 10 years. I have seen many school supply lists but never a list to prepare a child for kindergarten or preschool.
President Trump wants his flock to believe he is pro-life. He also wants them to believe there were airplanes way back in the year 1775. (July 4th speech).
I am extremely gratified to read that the Wisconsin Supreme Court unanimously (liberals and conservatives remarkably agreeing) confirmed Robert Zapf’s reputation and conduct as an ethical and professional prosecutor.
I couldn’t agree more with Carm Valeri’s excellent VOP from last Monday, “Dog walkers just toss pet poop bags by the side of the road.”
Road construction workers, please pay attention to where you are parking.
President Trump takes pleasure in blatantly abusing our Constitution. However, it’s mind-boggling to read of his willingness to defy the law of physics that says no two objects can occupy the same space at the same time.
The opinion column that you printed by Kiki Monifa and titled “Waiting to be an American” was disgusting. Just another person who states in his article, “I do in fact recognize my privileges and choose not to live elsewhere.”
President Trump really likes dictators. Our president is friends with Chinese dictator Xi Jinping and admires Rodrigo Duterte who has killed 20,000 plus of his people in the Philippines. Trump stands proudly next to the Saudi Crown Prince (tortures, beheadings, killed Jamal Khashoggi).
This is for all dog walkers:
I am a total car freak. I love to look at cars — old, new, hot rods, etc. The louder, the faster, the better.
The immigrants at the southern boarder are being abused. Families separated. Adults stuffed into cages. Little children and babies laying on the concrete floor, unbathed, poorly nourished, cared for by other children. No water, no toilets, no showers, no food, no adult caregivers.
The Wisconsin state budget should reflect what the vast majority of Wisconsin voters made clear are our priorities. Saying that the governor should defer to politicians who represent the fewest number of Wisconsinites is a slap in the face to representative democracy, particularly when those…
A 5-year-old boy was shot in the old parsonage next to Grace Lutheran Church on 60th Street and 20th Avenue. I grieved for the child, his family and my beloved church.
On this Fourth of July, the battle continues about whether kneeling constitutes disrespect for the flag, America, those who fought for its honor and “real” patriots.
The Wisconsin State Legislature has submitted its budget to Gov. Tony Evers for acceptance, revision, or veto.
Sunday, June 23, marked the 67th annual Little Leaguers of Kenosha 12 year olds’ All-Star Game.
As a passionate volunteer of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Kenosha, I’d like to invite our entire community to the 6th Annual Pancake Breakfast honoring local cancer survivors.
Not only did the Mueller investigation show Russian military interference in our 2016 election, but also a group of grade school kids revealed to the public just how vulnerable our voting software is to hacking.
As a daily reader of the Kenosha News, I sometimes wonder why, today is one of them.
I just finished reading the Mueller Report. It concluded that the Russians interfered in our election and the president and his associates welcomed and encouraged their interference.
Kenosha is so privileged to have Holly Stanfield, director of many performances at Bradford High School, in our community.
Do I stay or do I go?
White Americans hear “reparations” and their thoughts immediately go to taxes.
Our president threatened total annihilation of Iran. Iran responded with a military attack on us.
I was moved by the story in last Thursday’s Kenosha News of the horrific accident on Interstate-94, of the heroic action by the driver of the northbound semitractor-trailer.
On June 11 around 10 a.m., I was going to the Post Office downtown to mail some letters. As I was walking in the parking lot I did not trip but fell flat down on my knees and my face.
First of all, I am very saddened about the most recent loss of life involving a child and a firearm. There are no accidents when it involves a firearm being carelessly discharged. These are all preventable.
On June 15, Sleep in Heavenly Peace sponsored “Bunks across America,” a build to inspire community participation, with the goal of lifting 5,000 children off the floor in one day.
That is an excellent idea Al Bella has, renaming a portion of Sixth Avenue between 55th Street and 59th Place as Mike Bjorn Way.
Gov. Tony Evers wants inclusion when it comes to flying flags at the state Capitol. Besides the U.S. and Wisconsin flags, he now flies the gay pride flag.
A recent Kenosha News “Our View” asked why downtown lighting couldn’t be done sooner. I’d ask why it can’t be done later.
We finally see what Gov. Tony Evers wants to do with Wisconsin’s budget. Taxin’ Tony has proposed: increasing taxes by $1.2 billion, a $2 billion structural deficit and an 8.3 percent increase in spending.
