Did you know that the Greenfield Public Library has not just one, but TWO book clubs for your enjoyment? In addition to the widely popular adult book club that meets the second Wednesday of every month, there is also a lesser known book club for teens.

“Citizen Stewardship of Our Milwaukee County Parks”. That’s our mission statement; a nice concise
phrase packing a lot of meaning in a few words. Stewardship means different
things to different people, but one meaning is maintaining the health of our
neighborhood parks - something that can not be accomplished by our dedicated
park workers alone. That’s where you come in!
Governor Doyle has signed legislation that creates the official state tartan. I was the lead Senate sponsor of the legislation.
Take a look. The story behind the tartan is quite interesting.
The Wisconsin State Journal is reporting that last year, Governor Doyle’s administration “quietly dropped” the Accountability, Consolidation and Efficiency, or ACE initiative. The administration promoted ACE, promising a savings to the state of $200 million over four years by determining more effective ways to make state purchases.
My colleague, state Senator Rob Cowles of Green Bay has asked for an audit of ACE. Cowles is correct that during a time of a $650 million dollar revenue shortfall, the state must take every step it can to ensure funding is being spent appropriately and effectively.
Read the Wisconsin State Journal article.
Some states refuse to participate because of America’s political differences with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
Stateline.org has the details.
Meet Mae. She's the kind of girl willing to throw all caution against the wind and propel herself through the air, across the room and into unknown territory simply to catch that sneaky catnip mouse. Mae is also a very lovely feline with round emerald eyes and a dense tiger-striped coat. She's a healthy weight and maintains her figure by practicing gymnastics.
Mario met his match and went home last weekend with a great family!
I certainly hope so.
The Wisconsin State Journal is reporting Democrats might be ready to drop their proposed hospital tax as one of the provisions to fix the state’s $652.3 million revenue shortfall.
I am on record opposing any tax increase that is part of the budget repair bill.
I recently received an e-mail from Matt asking about the proper protocol for proceding through a four way intersection which is controlled by stop signs. The question specifically asks if more than one vehicle is at the intersection at approximately the same time, who gets to go first? According to state statute 346.18 the vehicle to the left needs to yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right. I'm sure Matt is now envisioning this scenario and looking at his hands trying to figure out who gets to go first!
How you can prevent home fires caused by smoking.
Fires caused by cigarettes often start on or next to the victim-in bed, on a sofa, or in the trash-this is tragic, because the fires could have easily been prevented.
The Greenfield Parks & Recreation Summer Playgrounds provide group activities for children in a safe, supervised environment at local schools and parks.

You may not be able to tell from her photos, but Amelia is nearly 100 lbs... of pure love! She's what dog people call a "leaner," a dog who loves to brush up against you and lean into your body, wanting to be as close to you as possible. Amelia loves to be cuddled, brushed, nuzzled and given belly rubs. At 3.5 years old, this Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier prefers praise over toys and slow walks over triathalons. She likes to play with the occasional plush toy but isn't very fond of fetching or aerobic exercise.
