I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
My name is Jeff and I have done guest blogs before. I currently run The Right View Wisconsin blog. http://www.rightviewwi.com/
Mayor Ryan McCue do the right thing this time and don’t hold up the Wal-Mart or fully explain yourself.
Wal-Mart…a word and a place that simply makes some happy and others mad.
It causes some to protest against and others to fight for it.
Cudahy Wal-Mart - Just to keep you up to speed
I included a snippet of the editorial in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Please read all of it at the link below. In addition, the J/S wants to hear from you.
Before I get into the meat and potatoes of the post, here is Jay Weber’s pod cast on Wal-Mart and cleanup of the Iceport site. We truly have to thank God for giving us Jay Weber. Please listen to his show as he always has interesting and thought provoking topics.

Here is the audio file from the Cudahy Common Council meeting Tuesday December 2, 2008.
Many Cudahy residents may remember the Germantown police dog Bosco. Officer Bosco (yes he is a police officer) came to Cudahy to do a demonstration this year.

While open record requests for public information is new to Cudahy and the City Hall people, it is not a new thing in most cities. I had the chance to meet a few fellow bloggers recently and many of them do them all the time. While there is a link on the city website, it is not easily found.

This has been request by many readers; sorry it took so long to get it posted. It is important to know who represents Cudahy and for the citizens to be engaged and informed!I personally think that all of this information should be included in the City Newsletters because information is power and the people need information to have power.
The Common Council Agenda – Who and How
Revisiting the Common Council Agenda
A favorite holiday tradition in southeastern Wisconsin is driving around looking at Christmas lights and decorations.
It is just too bad the rest of the Cudahy Alderpersons didn’t send out a questionnaire like Third District’s Mark Otto.
To know is to be. As information is all power, so too can power come from not knowing. It is only for the knowing to wield instead of the all. As if information is known, the power is diminished, but the glory can be shared.
In my post titled: Cudahy Common Council Meeting Dec 2nd, 2008 (includes audio file) a reader reached out and posted the following comment:
“Randy, is there anything the citizens can do to still make the Wal-Mart happen? What about a protest outside city hall, and try to get as much news coverage as we can? WISN radio has been doing a good job, but I think more exposure is needed. I hate to see this just end like this. What can we do?”
Tina Dondajeski of the Patrick Cudahy Park Friends group has decided to run for the Fourth District Alderperson seat in the Jan. 20 special election as a “Write-In” candidate to fill a vacancy on the Cudahy Common Council from when Sean Smith resigned.
Eighth District County Supervisor Pat Jursik suggested she run for the spot when Mr. Smith first resigned, but home improvements diverted her attention from the race.
The First Alert ONELINK Talking Wireless Alarms are by far the best Smoke/CO Alarm I have seen on the market. The ones I picked up from Ace in Oak Creek was the First Alert Onelink combination smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector.
What makes the Smoke/CO Alarms the best is the fact that they talk to each other wirelessly. So, if a fire is detected in the basement the ones on the other levels will also tell you about. Now they are not cheap. Each unit was 69.99 at Ace. Wal-Mart, Target and K-Mart didn’t seem to carry them at the time I bought mine in fall. They do come in different models without the CO and such.
Please help out and watch for these dangerous people. If you know or have seen any of them, please call the Milwaukee Police Department's Criminal Investigation Bureau at 414-935-7302
Please don’t forget to look at “The December poster for Milwaukee's 10 Most Wanted” post, but this information from Sgt Blunt of the Cudahy Police Department was too important not to post right away.
As some of you may know, Cudahy has been experiencing a rash of garage burglaries during the past 10 days to 2-week period, many on the north side and within the Blockwatch area of Cudahy.
