June 15 Free Concert poster - FINAL-page-001


Middle Wisconsin’s FREE Concert for Public Schools & Students is a community-based and non-partisan effort to show and gather support for public education — here where we live, and all over our state. With recent statewide financial cutbacks for public education and the proposed shift toward more public funding of private charter schools and private school voucher programs, our local public schools and our children face unprecedented uncertainties.

We are gathering on Wausau’s 400 Block at Noon on June 15, 2013 to celebrate Wisconsin’s proud tradition of public education, to seek support from citizens and our government officials, and to help promote fairness and stability for public schools, teachers and students. The event will include performances by four bands; a variety of speakers will be invited; various food vendors; and community service organizations will be invited to set up information and activity booths.

Middle Wisconsin will be capturing the event on video and will produce a documentary movie for public distribution (i.e., youtube, news media, organizations).

*** Why Public Schools? ***

– To provide universal access to free education

– To guarantee equal opportunities for all children

– To unify a diverse population

– To prepare people for citizenship in a democratic society

– To prepare people to become economically self-sufficient

– To improve social conditions

Please visit the event page on facebook, RSVP and share with your friends ! 

Hope to see you there !!! 🙂 — your friends at Middle Wisconsin

If the Mine Were In Your Backyard — Wausau   Leave a comment

mine over wausau

Here you go, MWers…this is what the proposed iron mine would look like if it were smack-dab in the middle of Wausau.

Take a look at the size of the land mass it covers…now imagine this in the middle of Northern WI’s pristine wilderness…among rivers, streams and wetlands…and try to imagine the impact.

The bill — essentially written by the mining company —  fails in its jobs claim, and if the jobs do come, they won’t be even seen in a year or two.  Per the bill’s author, environmental protections will be rolled back.  And new, relaxed rules would severely restrict local control and transfer an unfair cost burden to local municipalities and tax payers.

Now ask yourself — having rejected high-speed rail, which would have lowered dependence on fossil fuel and brought many jobs…having rejected Medicare funds, which would keep a health-care safety net under those who desperately need it and would have brought many jobs…balanced against all the things related to the mine project noted above, is this the direction we want to go ? is this ‘Forward‘ ???
