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.
Update - From Sgt Blunt:
"The hearing date for the Thirsty Moose is Thursday October 23rd at 6:30pm. All indications are there will be an actual hearing. I strongly encourage anyone and everyone to attend this meeting."
Awhile ago I commented on Eminent Domain about the city taking over bars in Cudahy as the wrong way and that it should be done with finding violations to shut them down.

“Provoked neighbors hope to kill The Thirsty Moose
Complaint filed to revoke tavern’s liquor license

When Terry Kaminski bought her home one block away from The Thirsty Moose in April 2007, she thought she moved into a quiet residential neighborhood.
But ever since the tavern at 3800 E. Layton Ave. opened in July of that year, the weekends have been noisy and chaotic, she said.
Not only do people trespass through her yard as a shortcut to the bar, but each morning they leave broken glass, beer bottles, cans and litter on her property.
“It’s like a trash bin out there in our yard,” she said.
During an Oct. 7 meeting, a complaint was filed by fed-up neighbors who want the tavern’s liquor license revoked.
Gang members frequent
Several of the residents say the bar caters to gang members, who are disrespectful to neighbors and act unruly.
Many of the neighboring residents have children and do not want them exposed to gang members.
Courtney Marzec, a neighbor and mother of two small children, said the area is usually loud on weekends. But one night she looked out her window and saw a man in the middle of Layton Avenue curled up in a fetal position being kicked and beaten by a group of 15 to 30 people.
“I don’t want to get woken up one night to gun shots and find out that one of my children has been shot,” she said.
Authorities have found gang members in the tavern. During an unannounced visit in March, the Cudahy Police Department and the Milwaukee Police Department’s Gang Unit arrested three people who had warrants and identified four gang members.”
I received this email today from Sgt Chris Blunt on the Thirsty Moose tavern’s revocation hearing. If you can please attend, the meeting today October 16th at 6:30pm in the Common Council chambers.
Here is the email:
This e-mail is advise everyone there will be a License Committee hearing regarding the revocation of the Thirsty Moose tavern. I will be one of the representatives of the police department and probably will be testifying. This is a public hearing that is taking place today, October 16th at 6:30pm in the Common Council chambers. I know this is an important issue for many residents. I hope you consider attending this hearing.
