Live on TV is Racine in Ruins!

Due to the power of Goggle + and You Tube Racine in Ruins will soon be able to do do live broadcasting to a far greater audience then CAR 25.  We will also still be able to bring this programing to CAR 25 and the City of Racine.

Just think of all the folks we will be able to reach and tell the story of Racine WI, a city in ruins.

To think that Mayor John Dickert thinks he can control the events in Racine   from being told to the outside world is just silly!

It’s all those evil Blogers fault


Time and time again, I am told or I read that the issues in Racine is not:

Failing Schools

High Unemployment

The  Real Estate The City buys then cant fails to sell

Failing pricing of Real Estate

Failing assessment rates

Companies leaving Racine

The public distrust of The City’s spending ideas

No not any of that but the writing found on this Blog or blogs like this.

After all to  them  our leaders who I call the Good Old Boys know best, at least that’s what they tell us.

So of course to say the Mayor has no cloths is of course saying that we disagree with our betters. That to them is a evil crime to say that we disagree with those who the rich and white have declared to be the appointed ones.

I see this as one of the main reasons why the attacks on CAR 25 occur.

The Good Old Boys truly believe that a Business does not check how well the Schools in an area might be or the Tax rate of an area might be but only what is written in a Blog!




Wolfman Reports 10/28/12

The coming Nightmare for Mayor John Dickert



In about a week we will vote for  President and the Other Senator for Wisconsin.

I think the signs are clear that Mitt will be the next President and Thompson the new Senator

bonus The GOP will get bot Houses in the State of Wisconsin.


This will be great for us and a living nightmare for Mayor John “I am not a Crook” Dickert, for with the GOP running both the State and D.C. the Obama love will stop and The State of Wisconsin just might be interested in seeing how The City of Racine is run and look into say Voting Fraud issues and how the City may have spent Grant monies in the past.

Best of all The State DNR will not be so fast to give Grants for “Toys” like RootWorks nor will the EPA.  I know I will be writing both the DNR and the EPA to look into RootWorks as I believe its not something to fix the River here but nothing more then a tool o be used to bring $$ to the rich and white of downtown Racine.

With both EPA/DNR soon to be ran by folks who care about the how and why of a project vs if there a (D) behind the Mayor’s name or not might go a long way to refocus or even stop  what I see  as misspending on RootWorks.

I think that the City of Racine will be cut off from the “Free Money” we have been getting and worthless Real Estate games  I mean programs like NSP could be held to account. Who got what and why maybe looked into. Perhaps even the FBI could come to town looking into the last 4 years you never know.

Be interesting to see what rats  jump ship once the $$ starts to get cut off and questions start being asked.

Why the Mayor did not start planing for a GOP victory is beyond me because its coming.

Any bets the Mayor Dickert runs for 1st CD?


Racine Fair Share

Looks like voting has began on Mayor John Dickert’s idea of having NGO’s chip in to The City of Racine’s needs.

As I see it if you like what the Mayor is doing one would send a check if not you will not.

so  what might the total be for Racine Fair Share

My Open Records request:

Good Morning.

I am requesting the following Open Records the Names of and Amounts by each given to The City of Racine’s Fair Share program. From 10/4/12 to 10/22/12.

A PDF copy would be fine.

Thank You

Wayne Clingman

The Answer:

Mr. Clingman,

Although we have had inquiries, no contributions have been made to the Fair Share program.

Thomas Friedel

City Administrator

730 Washington Ave.

Racine, WI 53403


So for the dates of the Open Record no one gave a dime.

Not any City Leader  and NGO in Racine no one.

How nice it must be to know as Mayor of Racine you can not raise Dime one for you city is such needy times.

How much do you think this program will bring in?

Update The J-T  reported that the UU gave around $,1200. AS was pounted out by an evil Bloger that’s less then one week’s salary for the City Administrator.

Yet a grass Roots effort in Michigan is doing a great job.

Here is a link to the story:  could it be that few trust Mayor John Dickert?


Wolfman Reports 10-23-12


A review

Take a gander at the Blog I stated on the Root River Plan. Looks like a lot of my speculation may be coming to pass.

What would you rather have a Fire Station or a new Foot Bridge across the Root River?

What might be going on? Can you say Azarian Marina? With update

Two events going on

1) Committee of the Whole  Monday 10/22/12 6:30

Subject: (Direct Referral) Request from the Director of City Development to present the
plan titled “RootWorks – Revitalizing Racine’s Urban River Corridor, Root River Corridor
Redevelopment Plan” and discuss the next steps for implementation of


Executive Committee Meeting: Monday, October 22, 2012 6:00 PM City Hall, Mayor’s Office

“It is intended that the Executive Committee will convene in closed session pursuant to section 19.85
(1) (e), Wisconsin Statutes, to address the request of the Director of City Development to acquirenon-residential real estate, which requires a closed session for bargaining reasons.

Part of the Rootworks plan call for Water St to be marked to others as Machinery Row:

From the Plan The catalyst for RootWorks is Machinery Row, with warehouses and industrial buildings
lining Water Street. Rich with character and history, these buildings will see reuse as urban
lofts, live-work units, and creative spaces for growing new businesses. Just out the door, the
River Loop connects workers to 1.75 miles of scenery, walkways, River access and parkway.
An entrepreneurial business magnet in the past, Racine’s riverfront has high
profile space opening up once more. Several sites in the Corridor are poised for
redevelopment, including large parcels of land for new businesses and corporate centers

A large area of this area is made up of the Azarian Marina. The owners are behind on Taxes want to sell as I understand it have asked the City to buy the property.  City Administer  Friedel told me in a phone call that Azarian Marina wanted too much money for the City to buy.

Ah is it raining or is   Friedel pissing?

Lets add the fact that The City can’t build out but only within. Buildable land is at a premium (this is if anyone wants to build in Racine) so this area of the City be a great location for someone (if they exist) right?

plug that in to a new Foot Bridge  across the Root River from Mount St to this new city owned area and maybe a retail center is proposed with its own TIF area!

Is there a Developer  standing by?

Is the J-T  running this story “LOT FOR SALE: City-owned land awaits development in Racine” preparing the way?

Now your guess is as good as mine in this but IMHO this all fits together all too well and this is Racine.

The City who’s Mayor tells the Unions we have no money to pay them, sues his own City gets the City to pay his legal bills and settlement.

Now looking like to some that Mayor John Dickert wants to play Real Estate games.


Looks like its not quite the time for the City to buy the Marina unsted they bought two other locations.  One Racine Steel Castings  will cost how much to get ready? the the Old Case Credit Building.

The   Azarian Marina fits too well IMHO in the idea of Machinery Row for it not to be bought.

We also have no idea of what was all talked about at this time in the Executive Committee Meeting. Nor do we know if the county maybe coming in on this due to the Back Taxes


is Mayor Dickert runing with the hare and hunting with the hounds


News Flash Racine!

What is going on?

Mayor John Dickert who loves spending our money on:


City Hall Bathrooms $400K +  at least one newspaper is looking into finding what the real costs might be via open records

His Legal Bills 100 K +

Settlements over his law suits ???? We are waiting to find out

Round abouts City Share is ??

NSP Law suits still making their way in the courts that cost???

Many have screamed about the City and its spending after all Mayor John Dickert himself said we have no money when he busted the City Union contracts even though we will see this Monday 10/22/12 how much The Mayor wants to spend on Rootworks

{Sidebar the Good old boys talk about Bonds NOT being tax $$ however Bonds must be paid back with interest}

Now we read that Mayor John Dickert has joined a group that as the J-T tells us ” Dickert part of new Wis.chapter of group for national debt cuts”  wow why might this be?

Is it because the Mayor seeing the handwriting on the Wall that Obama will lose (YES!) and there is no money come to save Racine, that Walker has great cause not to doing thing for our Mayor other then I hope to start an investigation on how Racine works so in some strange way thinks that by joining this group he could make new pals and get the $$ he so badly needs?

This week we will see the City of Racine Budget for 2013. Be interesting how can he be a member of this national debt cuts group and try ANY type of silly spending?  Is this just something for his Resume to run to fill Ryan’s seat when he becomes V.P.?


Your guess is as good as mine



Accredited Press

So  was at the Fair revocation  hearing on Monday night about The Place on 6th St shooting video to have B Roll for further use with to full batteries and time went on and on and on….

Batteries ran out far short of the hearing did.  I could have simply used an outlet but the only outlets I could see was in the Press area and I am not “Accredited Press” so I thought I call and find out how that might be done.

I called the City Clerk who after a bit had me call the City Attorney and I did so.

Mr Webber sent me this Email:

Dear   Mr. Clingman:

In response to your question regarding press credential certification, the City of Racine does not have an official policy governing press credentials, but it has been our well-established past practice to limit access to those bona fide representatives who are directly employed by profit or non-profit organizations of print, television, and/or radio media.”

Really? The City of Racine does not have an ” official policy”  for this? Why perhaps because for years there has only been the Journal Times but wait!

When The Racine Post was  going (I do miss it) He was allowed in.

My guess is that without official credentials, the City would prevent me and IMHO Racine Uncovered in that area . Next there is the words  ” organizations of print, television, and/or radio media.” on following up with Mr Webber he goes on to say said after I asked about my Show on CAR 25 would fit the above

wrote “…Car 25 would not meet the criteria.”

Wow! CAR 25 is not media? The City sure thinks it is. They use it all the time to cover Press Events by the Mayor Events like Obama coming to town back in the day. Or is it my show that the City objects to?

Last night 10/16/12 Mr. Webber told me in person he have to send this to the Chief of Police for He (the Chief) would be the one doing the policy.

I will be following up on this. I just love to set my Camera up and plug it in a City outlet to say tape Mayor John Dickert’s next press event
