Historic Military Vehicle Convoy Date: Aug. 4, 2021 Time: 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm TODAY On Wednesday, August 4, 2021, a historic military vehicle convoy will be coming to Oconto between 12:00-2:00 p.m. The members are over age 60, and about half are Veterans. They call themselves the “Longest Veterans Day Parade” across America. This year, they follow the historic highway route from Aberdeen, SD, to Eastern Ohio over a three-week period. You are all encouraged to come and see the vehicles. They plan to come into Oconto on Hwy S and continue down Main Street to Farnsworth Ave. to Pecor St. and then Brazeau Ave. to view the decorated fence done by the Woman’s Club. After their stop here, they plan to head to Peshtigo & Marinette. There are currently 74 anticipated vehicles. The parade of vehicles will end up in the parking lot at the new Tractor Supply Company (formerly Shopko). Mike Bleibtrey, the owner of Omni Ray Lighting, has donated about 1000 American flags to wave as they go by. Members of the Oconto Police Department will be handing out the flags on the morning of the parade. The Oconto Elks Club is organizing food and beverages for the event. Food will be available to the general public for purchase. {Maybe you would like to cover this as they are coming from many states in the USA?]

Here is a message for my Trump friends. You have supported Trump. You have been to his rallies. You have a Trump sign in your yard. You've been vocal about it at Dunkin' Donuts waiting for your coffee, and now it is time to vote. You know Trump has promised to take away your healthcare with no other plan in place. You know one of his big budget cuts is to cut and do away with Social Security by 2023, and another budget cut is to Medicare. You know he tells you one thing, but you see his proposed budget cuts to Medicare tell you another thing. Go ahead. It's a secret vote. No one will know. Go ahead. Vote for Biden.
An idea for a story is the current condition of the d**e on Green Bay after decades of neglect by Public Works.
The Sitnikau story is only a small piece. As a Green Bay area school consultant who works out of state and internationally because things are so behind here (among other things), I was deeply dismayed by the new choice for Green Bay Area Public School Superintendent. Green Bay Schools, and now am dismayed by this clown show. In addition, this is a distrct that has been proven to extract parent data for their owen uses outside district business, and in my dealings with them (back when we explored a relationship) encountered 3 lies, told by 3 different people, and only once was I a recipient. (Especially in their dysfunctional special education "leadership") They appear to lie to each other as if that's normal business This is a school board, and district, that can't even ACT like they belong. The recent choice of superintendent takes the cake, though. Many of the district’s troubles and negative headlines have revolved around an inability to care for our students of color. Yet the school board has been all-white for years. Here, the blame must fall on Board President, Brenda Warren, whose job it partly is to recruit and develop new Board members, and I suspect there has been more of an unwillingness herein, rather than an inability. Case in point: In 2017 there was an opening on the school board that I applied for. In my letter I disclosed my autism diagnosis, and I had to cite an Ivy League Master's degree and long career in special educaton as an enticement (I know, "elitist" me). I was not even given an interview. But on the front page of the local paper just a couple of days ago it was reported that a recent School Board candidate was barred from the UW campuses because of sexist comments made towards female students (especially the athletes). I can't beat THAT guy out for an interview??? Diversity to Dr. Warren is clearly an inconvenience that she resents being asked to implement. She should have been ousted long ago. The final two candidates contained a woman of color. Was it for show? To be fair, neither final candidate had the sort of innovative track record needed to bring the GBAPS into modernity, especially when it comes to addressing students of color and a deeply flawed special education system. But to have settled on a successor with such a tepid record—with ho hum work in Iowa City and Wausau (where the Board gave him a vote of no confidence)? At least the other candidate had Nashville and Chicago on her resume. …No offense to him. We just needed better. Perhaps better candidates could not be enticed by such a mess. Perhaps the search committee was too insecure to try and find them. The school board’s only element of Diversity reflects gender. That’s it. I can’t use the racism accusation as I am not a person of color. But I can call them colonialist—individuals like Dr. Warren who represent the worst of the Midwest—seeming to think that their white values are universal values. My values are somewhat white too. I just don't make the mistakes of this Board in thinking that they work for everybody. ALL of the kids in Green Bay deserve better.
