My husband was bird watching near Lakefront Park tonight around dinner time. He only saw a few birds but did see a few elephants and a rare view of a Harsdorf. How unusual. It is the first Harsdorf he has seen in 2011.

James, Middle class wages and benefits will drop more precipitously than the St. Croix river, if Gov. Walkers actions are not curtailed. I think the comments about Sen. Harsdorf seeing her reflection in dead carp on the St. Croix are unnecessarily harsh. On the other hand, Sen. Harsdorf has consistently ignored the voice of a large portion of her constituency. The have been left with no other recourse than to pursue her recall. Sen. Harsdorf can reverse this if she has the courage to do so by standing against Gov. Walker's drastic and unnecessary cuts, not only to teacher salaries, but to many essential social programs. Sen. Harsdorf, please do the right thing.

Your Welcome Jack... One thing I have noticed as the weeks go by there are less and less people making senseless comments in their attempts to "Stand with Sheila" They are either no longer standing with her ..or too embarrassed to say so in Public. I would love to see Sheila produce a list names and addresses of the Out of State special interest groups. Good luck to your Son. We can all pray the Courts stand by the Law and not with Walker/Harsdorf. Patt

WHEN is the recall election for the seat currently occupied by Mrs. Harsdorf? I don't want to miss it. Please advise.

The Walker recall has been completed and the state of Wisconsin has spoken and the state has been declared the winner......
