Senators hush-hush as they craft immigration bill March 9, 2013 at 2:33 p.m.

We can only hope that they study and analyze the failure of the 1986 Immigration that has led us to th situation we now find ourselves in again. Signed by Raisin and pushed by Ted Kennedy it gave amesty to millions and so the USA became a magnet for illegals and "special" minority groups. Ordinary foreigners who wanted to migrate and follow the rules were left out in the cold to allow the lawbreakers and certain "minority' groups in first.
Health and education standards and criteria were thown out of the window. Now we have a return of whooping cough and TB along the border states and who knows what else and a bunch of people that do not know how to read or write in English much less Spanish.
So, let us hope they get it right this time and do not reward the unlawful, the exploiting employers who want cheap labor and every so-called "special" minority group that wants more of "their" kind whatever that means.

Main Street viaduct repairs to restrict traffic through Sunday March 9, 2013 at 7:55 a.m.

NLR city officials need to replace this structure. It has been there over 60 years and served its purpose well. But it is time to replace it with a modern bridge that would serve as anohter gateway to NLR. A huge bond issue that is going to cost the taxpayers an arm and a leg was passed to modernize the schools. Now lets modernize something that the taxpayers can some real benefit from before the thing is condemned or crashes.
Our property taxes just went up, we need to get something out it other than talk and patchwork.

LR housing agency suspends 2 with pay in probe of contract March 9, 2013 at 7:46 a.m.

This is a blatant conflict of use. Once public corruption of fraud or the appearance or attempt at fraud is found, it has to be dealt with severly. All involved need to be terminated at once. Want public support for these type projects, then do not cheat and try to cover it up.
If these persons are not terminated then the head of the group should resign. Are others getting "kickback" too????

Hiring in February shaves jobless rate March 9, 2013 at 7:41 a.m.

This is a good sign and good trend. Once again it shows that the small increases in taxes on the 1% or the reinstatement of the payroll premiums had little or no effect on the economy.

State gun-maker joins no-sale protest March 9, 2013 at 7:38 a.m.

Like the porno industry, these people can sell to whoever they want to sell their "product". Unlike the porno industry, it raises taxes, medical and insurance costs.
Guns do not kill people, bullets kill people. Limit the quantity and size of bullets, which do not have any 'so-called constitutional" rights.

Gun-fee cut shot down in House March 9, 2013 at 7:31 a.m.

Yea,, feed free guns to the NRA nuts and illegals, then let the rest of us make up the difference in higher taxes and insurance dollars. What a bunch of hypocrites.

In the 21st century and we are doing "oral" deals.

Hollywood flaws spoil Schindler’s List March 8, 2013 at 7:56 a.m.

Good director, but a bit like Clint Eastwood, too overreaching , too much preaching and living off of his reputation. His best works are behind him.

Hopefully, Bielema’s blackout temporary March 8, 2013 at 7:47 a.m.

Closing the practices is a good idea. The students are over-exposed now and all the attention gives them the 'idea" that they are doing something productive rather than practicing for games that affect the lives of very few people. Most fans do not care about such trivia or details, they are interested in the games and the results.
Reign of Terror is a silly way to label this time period. The Hogs had several really good seasons during that reign. What kind of reign did we have with JLS and Jeff Long in control mode?

Abusing the system March 7, 2013 at 8:30 a.m.

Animal Farm all over again. If some of these people are interesting in helping someone: how about all these people without jobs or decent paying jobs. The animal rights folks have too much time and money on their hands. Want to help, help your fellow human being. Animals were here before us and probably will be here after we are all gone unless we slaugher them all.
