We’re Thankful for Global Warming

Science displays at Wisconsin State Parks will tell you that glaciers covered our landscape, ending just 12,000 years ago.

We’re talking Ice Age. During the several (yes, more than one) ice ages that Wisconsin has experienced, glaciers reached as far south as southern Illinois.

This means that ice, up to a MILE-THICK, covered this state, and carved out features like the Kettle Moraine. A six-inch snowfall like we get now and then in winter is not what caused these earth changes.

More glacial maps from and UW-Green Bay.

Question: What did the Indians do back then to cause the ice to melt away? Or did they just happen to be the first settlers after the ice melted away? Melted then, by what?

Community Captains Training Seminar on Sat March 1

RPW’s Milwaukee Field Office will be hosting a Community Captains Training Seminar on Saturday, March 1. Whether you’re a current Community Captain or looking to become involved for the first time, it will be an informative event and is ultimately going to make the difference in Governor Walker’s election, as well as local, state, and federal elections in the future.

The liberals have pledged a staggering amount of money against Governor Walker, and not just for the airwaves. Millions of dollars are being put toward getting their boots on the ground here in our state, and we just can’t afford to sit idle while Democrats are fighting to take us back to billion dollar budget deficits and high unemployment.

Please join us to learn how you can take a grassroots approach to making a difference in your community, your state, and your country.

When: Saturday, March 1. 2:00 PM-3:30 PM
Where: Milwaukee Field Office. 311 W Silver Spring Dr, Milwaukee, WI 53217

To RSVP, or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Phil Curry, Milwaukee Field Director, at pcurry AT

Fix the mental health care crisis

In 1993, an in-depth 200-page report was delivered to the Milwaukee County Board highlighting critical flaws with the county’s mental health services program. This report, which is referred to as the master plan, laid out a blueprint for desperately needed reforms to a program that provides some of the most important services the county is charged with delivering.

At the time, consumer groups, advocates, service providers and local elected officials agreed that serious problems existed within the program requiring major reforms to the delivery of mental health services in the county.

January 2012. In the ad, Governor Walker takes his message directly to Wisconsin voters by laying out a number of the promises he made during his 2010 campaign, how those promises have been fulfilled, and the positive results the state has seen as a result of what the campaign is calling, “bold and necessary reforms.”

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker discusses 2014 Agenda

A new year will bring in a new agenda for Governor Scott Walker, who has plans to overhaul the state’s tax code. His major priority in 2014 will be laying the ground for work tax reform in 2015. Walker says eliminating the state sales tax could hold the key to job creation.

“I made a clear objective that every year I’m in office, I want to see the overall tax burden in the state — I want to cut taxes,” said Walker. “Every year I’m in office I want to continue to see the overall tax burden go down.”

Walker says he’s looking at everything from eliminating the state income tax to drastically reducing state property taxes.

Scott Feldt, Candidate for State Treasurer

Dear fellow Republican,

My name is Scott Feldt, and I am asking for your support. I wanted you to be one of the first to know that I am considering a run to be your next State Treasurer. I am the current Deputy State Treasurer, and have worked in the Treasurer’s office for more than 10 years - that means that I have the experience it takes to serve the people of Wisconsin.

The people of Wisconsin need a State Treasurer who will be a financial watchdog - and that’s what you’ll get if you elect me. I know how hard you work for your money, and you deserve a Treasurer who will keep an eye on your money.

I’m asking for your support because I know how important local county parties are. As a member and former chairman of the Rock County Republican Party, I know how many hours we put in, and how strongly we believe in our principles. I want you to know that as your State Treasurer, I will always approach the job with fiscally sound, conservative ideas - the kind of ideas that keep our state moving forward.

In the next two weeks, I will be announcing my campaign, and launching a website. In the meantime, I want to give you my e-mail address in case you have any questions about me or my campaign. My e-mail address is
