Before the protests, MPD and other law enforcement agencies called TEST (the traffic enforcement safety team) conducted coordinated traffic enforcement stops in April and May. But since the protests against the police killing of George Floyd to the recent increase in gun violence incidents, MPD has not been able to commit to consistent traffic patrol. The city approved a new program called Vision Zero that includes the E Washington corridor.
I don’t know if that’s how it works; I just know that a bunch of basement Wall Street bros took a large chunk out of new Mets owner Steve Cohen’s pockets and he still tried to sign Trevor Bauer. Speaking of which, shout out to Rockies’ No. 2 most hated entity, the LA Dodgers.
Residents who would like to save ash trees should consider three specific actions. 1) Consider treating those ash trees in good condition on their property outside of the terrace 2) Consider adopting a healthy park tree for chemical treatment 3) Consider giving to the Madison Parks Foundation’s replanting fund which will help us replant trees in the Parks after the ash are removed. I reported on this in February.
364 people crammed into an auditorium coded for 250. Near impossible head counts with each group practically sitting on each others laps. No room to move to another caucus even if you wished to do so. Absent any directive from the Wisconsin Elections Commission or a court, the City will proceed with Democracy in the Park, and it will process the ballots collected with other absentee ballots pursuant to Wisconsin Statutes. All voters are welcome to participate and observe the process which is designed to bring the entire community together to participate in democracy. I trust that is a goal you and your clients can support..
To pick up on the clue, you have to know one of the first things you learn when you’re fishing for makos: They share territory with blue sharks. The two species are kind of like lions and hyenas, coexisting in the same areas as they pursue different feeding strategies. Shortfin makos are the fastest sharks in the ocean, capable of reaching 35 miles an hour as they chase down speedy prey such as bluefish and tuna, and sport fishermen love their power.
That Democrats had a gun to his head with their threat to have a floor vote on Greene’s committee assignments probably made it more politically difficult for Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to act on his own. He did seek a deal with the Democrats to take her off the House Committee on Education and Labor and the Budget Committee and instead relegate her to the Small Business Committee. When Democrats didn’t bite, McCarthy again condemned her past comments and wrung an expression of regret from her in an internal GOP meeting earlier in the week that she repeated on the House floor on Thursday.
