I did not make many friends yesterday, I will just let the few warning shots fly right past me as I walk the line with kid gloves on, but I did have an uplifting gift of a peace sign that I proudly display in the front window now... (Peace on Main.) Thank you, the silent ones.
Despite it all, I pray the effort by both sides to reach across will not be mocked and dismissed, I sincerely hope Mr. J. Taylor, Mr. Barta and Mr. Igielski become the positive change and voices of reason we need. I did have to defend HBR a few times that half of her article was edited out, but she did not make many friends yesterday neither. Even Switzerland is getting bombed these days.
There will be a media day next Monday for all the artists picked for Guitar Town. I have heard the bar was set pretty high from the selection committee and the selected artists will make Waukesha proud. I have also heard the May 31 VIP party will be a very big deal, the limited amount of tickets for this event will likely be in high demand. A lot of hard works are being done by volunteers in almost unreasonably short time, and the few "negative people" are not helping. ( That is you, Wiggy...) I do need to defend Wiggy a little, I think Wiggy is not going after the project itself but more in the New Day Fund/Mayor/BID/BID appointment aspect of it. Let's not have a rally cry of Wiggy is trying to kill Guitar Town... ( Still walking the line...) UPDATE: Wiggy is positive that he is not negative...
Moxie girls made their donation to The Women's Center yesterday and I was honored to go along for the photo op. We were given a tour and we were all surprised on how big the place is. We did not know they have such a large capacity for women in need and even a daycare. Waukesha Tattoo Company is very proud to help for this good cause, but all the credits really should go to the Moxie girls.
Here comes the Gibson fever.
Hang in there, Brien. It is nice when one can have a long goodbye.
Darn that Open Record Requests...
Let's hear the truth and have a new start...
Biker Gang had a great day!
Darryl said, not so fast, I want to be a part of this "Negative People" thing...
SOUND OFF- Surprisingly mild...
LETTER TO THE EDITOR-Hey, that is Pete, he sits on the Salvation Army Advisory Board too!
POLICE BLOTTER-I have a hat like that...
Before the whole downtown stressed out to the max, I like to point out that we have Massage Therapy by Chelsea on Thursdays and Acupuncture by Robin on Fridays but you have to wait until after my appointments with both... ;)
UPDATE: Little bird said CC did not officially approve Guitar Town for some reason, contrary to what is being said on FB, I guess more news is to come...
UPDATE 2: Here is the CC agenda and this is what was done.
4. Matter of Report
The Board of Public Works has approved the placement of five 10’
tall fiberglass guitars in the public right-of-way in the proposed
and a quote:
From Asst. City Attorney Miles Eastman: “The council has not acted in any way that would "approve" guitar town.” Full story tomorrow (on Freeman).
I am actually kinda worried now for the artists' media day.
