Opinion: '06 could be an even bigger year for grass roots action

BY Chris Kliesmet

Tradition dictates that this is the period when we reflect on the year that was and the year that is to come. When considering the fortunes of grass roots activism in Wisconsin, one can come to no other conclusion than 2005 was a banner year for the movement in the Milwaukee area and beyond. While there were certainly numerous headline gathering "perfect storms," it is primarily the amalgamated blizzard of behind-the-scenes actions and subtext that tells the real story -- 2006 could be even a bigger year as the movement expands even more beyond southeastern Wisconsin.

Wheels roll to beat poverty

BY Pat Schneider

Both major presidential campaigns are dodging the "P word" -- poverty -- and misleading voters with a myopic vision of terror, evangelist Jim Wallis, in Madison on the Rolling to Overcome Poverty bus tour, said Friday. "Whoever is elected, we had better be at their front door to make clear that poverty is the weapon of mass destruction for America," Wallis said in an interview. "It touches everything else, in its social costs and connections to terrorism. Investing in a different future makes sense and is the right thing to do. But neither party has that kind of vision."

GOP SUDDENLY NADER'S FRIEND

Democrats want Ralph Nader to fade away. But Republicans want to do what they can to help get the independent presidential candidate on the ballot in as many states as possible -- and especially in battleground states like Wisconsin. Nader has a similar mindset. After losing the backing of the Green Party in Milwaukee last weekend, Nader is going after anyone who will back him (including the Reform Party, which endorsed Pat Buchanan in 2000.) Starting Aug. 1, Nader has five weeks to collect 2,000 signatures to get on the Wisconsin ballot.

A Score of School Districts Look to Ease Budget Woes with Referenda Today

BY David Wise

If 30 students per year were to leave a large school district like Milwaukee it would hardly raise an eyebrow. But when it happens in a district like northern Wisconsin's Three Lakes with a total enrollment of 701, the results can be devastating. Because the state imposes revenue limits on schools based partly on enrollment and the prior year's spending, Three Lakes will lose about $789,000 in levy authority for the 2004-2005 school year, says the district's administrator George Karling. The district had a budget last year of about $6.2 million.
