Autism rates stabilize in Wisconsin schools: study
2010-10-25 06:24:00
Autism rates could be leveling off at just above one percent of children, Wisconsin researchers suggest. Between 2002 and 2008, they found the number of kids in the state?s special education autism category nearly doubled. But the increase was only seen in those schools that started out with very few autistic kids, hinting that the statewide rates may be stabilizing. Autism spectrum disorders, which range from mild Asperger?s Syndrome to severe mental retardation and social disability, affect about one in 110 children in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

October 3 Election Analysis
2008-10-04 01:49:00
Updated October 4:Obama is really starting to pull away now. McPalin better do something and fast. They've got nothing to lose at this point, and I expect the full bore of 527's with Revered Wright, William Ayers and anything else they can dredge up. I figure things are going to get awful dirty real fast. To be honest, it's probably McCain's only hope at this point.Pennsylvania looks like it is pulling away for Obama now. Biden is a big hit here. It's a funny state. There's Democratic Philly and Pittsburgh and Pennsyltucky, Pennsylsippi and Pennsylbama in between. A bunch of rural, racist Whites, often Democrats, who love to hunt and ain't voting for no nigger.Still, recent polls are giving Obama up to a 12 point lead. The state has a 1 million Democratic registration advantage so it's really a trap for McCain. The plot was that as long as it was close enough, McCain would be forced to spend a lot of time and money in Pennsylvania, and he'd probably end up losing.McCain's ...

More Concrete for Wisconsin Highways is NOT the Answer
2008-06-05 03:23:00
James Rowen, at The Political Environment, has written elegantly about the inappropriate policies that we are pursuing for our regional transporation systems in Wisconsin:"Politicians, Planners And Lobbyists Choose Highways Over Rail""Thinking Globally, Forgetting Locally"In his second post, Rowen says:"Southeastern Wisconsin needs more transit, and it needs cleaner air, too - - twin goals, both worthy and linked."We're constantly told that highway expansion is the key to economic development, when, in fact, rail lines stimulate economic growth, too, from housing to retail to the long-term, well-paying jobs that keep the trains running and serviced."Smog, unhealthy air and non-existent transit systems, on the other hand, are economic turnoffs - - for potential tourists, business relocations, incoming students and all the people who already live and work here."Climate change is a tremendously complex set of issues, and certainly difficult to effect globally from one medium-sized cit...

Chicago Still in the Hunt for the 2016 Summer Olympics
2008-06-04 19:38:00
The BBC, The Wall Street Journal, and the Offical website for the Olympic Movement have released stories that Chicago is on the list of the final four cities to host the 2016 Summer Olympics. The other cities on the list are Tokyo, Madrid, and Rio de Janeiro. Each city now has 16 months to present their case. The International Olympic Committee will make a decision in Copenhagen on October 2, 2009.According to the BBC, "The strongest contender in terms of infrastructure, support and money is Chicago, 20 years after the last US summer Games in Atlanta, 1996 . . . The Americans will however have to improve the technical aspect of their bid after an IOC evaluation report ranked Tokyo and Madrid much higher than Chicago, with Rio in fourth place."This would be a great opportunity for all of the Midwest--and the state of Wisconsin. We should do all that we can to help Chicago secure the games.

Last week, I was able to spend a few days and nights with my family in the Birchwood area (, Birchwood Area Chamber of Commerce,, Wikipedia). We stayed at Janetski's Big Chetac Resort on Big Chetac Lake. We had nice, sunny weather for the entire time we were up there--however, I did have to adjust to the temperature a bit. In Thailand, this would be considered winter!~a view of Big Chetac Lake from our cabin~~ditto~From our cabin, we were able to make a short--30 minute--drive north to Hayward (Hayward Area Chamber of Commerce,,, Wikipedia).

Looking for Thai Food in Milwaukee or Madison? Or Anywhere?

When I was down in Madison a couple of weeks ago, I went to Sa-Bai Thong Thai Cuisine. The food was authentic and declicious! The prices may be a little more expensive than some other asian food places. However, the serving sizes are big and the staff is friendly. If you know a little Thai, you can show off your skills there. :)If you are going to be in Milwaukee anytime soon, you might want to stop by the Thai Palace. I haven't had a chance to eat there, but--according to "Thai Palace is not flashy, but the food is fabulous."If you are looking for other Thai restaurants around the country go to and search for results.Also, if you have time, you may want to submit your opinions to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's latest Food Fight.

Use Food Stamps at Madison's Farmers' Market
2008-05-31 18:48:00
The Capital Times reports that the "Farmers' market fare [is] now available with food stamps":"Participants in Wisconsin's food stamp program are now able to buy fresh food from the Saturday and Wednesday Dane County Farmers' Markets."The program is an effort to help low income families get more healthy, fresh, locally-raised food. In the past, food stamp recipients were restricted from using food stamps at the market because vendors work on a cash basis.. . . "In Dane County, more than 10,000 families participate in the FoodShare Wisconsin program. Though the benefit amounts vary by household size and income, the average benefit for households here is about $182 per month. The program helps families purchase breads, grains, cereals, meats, dairy products, fruits and vegetables."I think this is a great idea!
The Great Lakes Basin Water Resources Compact
2008-05-30 23:48:00
On Tuesday, May 27, 2008 Governor Jim Doyle signed the Great Lakes Basin Water Resources Compact. The Compact overwhelming passed the State Senate (32-1) and State Assembly (96-1) in bipartisan fashion. In a statement on the Milwaukee Biz Blog on May 28 Governor Doyle said:"The Great Lakes Compact not only protects these resources for generations to come, but presents a great economic opportunity for Wisconsin, where we have the second-largest amount of Great Lakes shoreline of anyone. One of our greatest competitive advantages in a 21st Century global economy is our water--water that will help Wisconsin businesses grow and draw new businesses to our state."As water sources in metropolitan areas across the country dry up, our sparkling blue waters will look better than they ever have. It's imperative we keep that water here in the Midwest, not in faraway deserts in other corners of the country."On May 27, State Senator Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) praised the adoption of the Compact...
