This Just In ...

Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely young daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.

Ted Thompson is an absolute genius

The Packer General Manager is so much smarter than me and thousands of other Green Bay fans.

He knows sooooooooooooo much about football.

He knows Brett Favre is washed up.

He knows Brett Favre just can’t play the game anymore.

He knows that in order to win, a team needs to do so without Brett Favre.

Brett Favre no longer has what it takes to be a leader.

To get to that “next level,“ whatever the hell that means, the Packers have to do it with a quarterback with little or no experience.

The Packers without a 3-time NFL MVP that led the team to a 13-3 record last year and a game away from the Super Bowl are better off  this year without him because, well, he’s washed up and I’m a cocky, arrogant, SOB of a GM that knows more about football than anyone else, so shut your %$#@^*&^%$# mouth.

I am in awe of Ted Thompson's brilliance.

UPDATE: Favre and the Jets have good Karma.

Here's more from the American Cancer Society.

Carstensen is one of Franklin's best corporate citizens. Thank you, Mark, for all you do for our community!

7% don't say?

Have you heard the ads?

The ones on the radio....from We Energies.

Nothing new, really. They've been making the same claim for a long time.

We Energies swears their energy prices are 7% below the national average. That could very well be. I have no idea if that's true or not.

I can tell you this....when I hear that advertised proclamation, it doesn't make me, as a consumer, feel any better.

Seems to me this might be a good project for a certain newspaper or any TV news department in town to investigate.

Is it true?  Are We Energies prices 7% below the national average?

Again, even if it's true, I still don't feel like I'm getting a bargain.

Another example of why people hate government

By golly, they want that penny!
