So why are we



So why are we doing so much to keep Downtown Racine a float? What’s in it for say West Racine? or the Southside?

Many Properties are behind on taxes. If things are booming why? If renters are doing well Rents should be getting paid, so what’s the Story? What is the total amount owed in Property taxes in The Tifs in the Downtown area?

My guess  this is the highest concentration of Bars are in this area of Racine. How much Police resources are spent here? Are folks on The North side in jeopardy because they  are not the officers free that are needed elsewhere?

I expect that Case will be reducing the number of employees soon in downtown Racine.  Case is also NOT looking for more City Spending and are up to date on Taxes. They are not begging for money to prop them up from the City of Racine. They owe a duty to the shareholders NOT Downtown Racine. Case I expect will act that way.

J Wax too is up to date on Taxes and I believe if the economy goes south will seek to combine operations to save $$. Will that mean moving employees elsewhere?  I  so can see The Mayor of Racine begging J-Wax not to do so for if say 150 workers moved to The County  we see bushiness fail. The City has a lot riding on the image of a booming downtown. If as I am told that some in the Downtown are on the edge of failing. How do they make it?  Is the City’s job to keep them afloat?

Kinda of hard to maintain this image with empty store fronts.

Should your taxes go up to save the Downtown? Should your street light get turned off for the Downtown?

The raising  unemployment  rate will make any new store hard to say open. How many Bars can the Downtown support?

How does the Downtown draw more to shop when so many Property owners are behind on Property taxes?   How will the public react should the County start going after properties for being behind on taxes?

IMHO not one more $ gets spent until something is done about this issue on the Downtown.

I find it interesting that Fair and Cole won the primary. That those found to run by the Mayor for the seat was unable to win.  This is very bad news for the Business owners  in the Downtown that where counting perhaps on more City Spending.



The Mayor John Dickert Network is in Effect. Editoral NSFW

Editorial Not safe for work

First let us thank our   beloved leader for being so great and full of love for us his People


Mayor John Dickert    Whoops





Mayor John Dicker of Racine



As you may have read The Councilmen of Racine voted to give the contract to run CAR 25 to Sky Falls Media of Kenosha WI to the best of my knowledge  they do not have an office in Racine WI

I was at the City Council for public comment and left after no reason to stay I knew the script was written  by our master Mayor John Dickert!



and knowing what was to come I went home.


Tried to watch live on CAR 25 saw the interaction after Alderman Fair read the Letter from Scott Nelson’s lawyer and noted that once again that Mayor John Dickert protected his pets from knowing about this letter by trying to withhold the letter from them, as he did as I see it the information from Mr. Henrix on his proposal on giving the City of Racine over 10K in Donation for CAR 25 (Now the Mayor John Dickert Network). hearing the Ast Cit Attorney  dismiss it out of hand was too much I turned it off.

Side Bar I think the letter was the shot across the bow, I firmly see a court case coming on this issue, yes I am as shocked as you are the City of Racine taking an action that results  in us getting sued, not like The Mayor  when the City loses we get to pay the damages not his holiness    Mayor John Dickert of Racine ho can do no wrong, just ask him!


His Holiness The all knowing Mayor John Dickert!


Was not surprised to read the official Newspaper of the Mayor Of Racine story on the vote.

Yes lots of time and effort to give CAR 25 away to pals so our Mayor can as I see it have his own propaganda network.

What will happen now?

Well I think:

1) The ending of any programing critical of the Mayor of Racine or the City of Racine, the rules/Regulations will change to be sure this type of programing can be ended.

2) The City of Racine will be sued over how all this came about and wrongful discharge

3) Sky Fall Media will receive contracts to provide “Tourism” spots for the City.  Since this is not in the proposal as I understand it they may be able to bid or bill out for the spots above. Beats making Music videos I think.

4) One of theses will be a film looking at Racine and the leadership of Mayor John Dickert. Parts of these will be used in upcoming political races.

Perhaps this song said it all




Long term

1) If sued the City loses over the Bid process and wrongful discharge.

2) Sky Falls is unable to sell advertising to cover operating costs. This is due to not being able to document # of viewers watching The John Dickert Network. Costs for the spots are not competitive vs Time Warner. Another idea of Mayor John Dickert fails, this shocks very few.

3)  Past producers not being able to broadcast on CAR 25 sue over public access in Federal Court . City loses.

4) FCC/GAB get interested  in the use of Public access equipment  political campaniles


Is this the prolog for Racine WI?











God is just so great

Opportunity is all around! We just got to go for it. Try what we will win or lose.

With the New Blogging on Racine Exposed (Got to be written by an old  school Journalist its that good)  and the issues we have, the beginning of the Racine Communicator covering (Doing a great job) stories needing full time resources, my efforts need to go back to The Root River and the “fun times” that I think Rootworks will bring to the city of Racine, note I said “Fun times ” not jobs not a rebirth of the Root River, no sorry IMHO just the Friends of Mayor John Dickert making bank and setting up others (Members of the Suicide Cult) to risk all and take the fall.

Yes not only will I be blogging on this but between speculation in Domain names, The Film “It Came From The Root River ” working with others to create Urban  Agriculture business opportunities for all vs tourism  for the rich white downtown .

I am sure from time to time I will post on issues in Racine here but my focus will be the Root River.






The State Controled Media of Mayor John Dickert Hero of Racine




You read about the total spent on the legal bill for the Mayor’s fight with Bill?

Did you read about how Mayor John Dickert WITHOUT an O.K. from the City Counsel?

Funny, until today when I read the Racine Communicator I did not either nor anyone I know hear anything on WRJN.

Why might that be?   the J-T and WRJN have reporters, both cover City Hall, yet nothing.

Might it be that  both will not report anything that our Mayor no Our GOD Mayor John Dickert does not want them to report?

Even the very strange stories coming out (You can see clips on the Communicator’s Web site) on CAR 25 is getting nothing.

I can only think that the Good Old Boys Media know that this (real reporting) will not allowed that only Pro Mayor Dickert stories will be allowed.  Only Stories that do not talk about the numbers of property owners behind on property taxes, questions about Park 6 and what might happen now that Mr. Homes has won his court fight.

Follow up on Delta Hawk, who is making Bank on Rootworks and their relationship with Mayor John Dickert will not happen, nor will stories on crime issues in Racine.

See that will make the Hero of Racine unhappy, we can not have that!

I feel that that’s one of the reasons CAR 25 had to be given by the Mayor to a pal he can trust to somehow prevent shows like mine to be shown to the public or The George Meyer Show for that matter. Nothing that puts our Hero Mayor John Dickert or the City of Racine in a bad light can be allowed!

After all if only Good news is allowed the BMW’s will show up! The rich whites in Northern IL will show up and spend $$ in downtown Racine! Because if they do not the Downtown is DEAD! Way too much money invested by the Good Old Boys for that!

However there are the bloggers who do report and talk about what is going on in Racine and will continue to do so.

What will our hero do to shut them up?  Will he use UNIT to do so?  Because IMHO all media in Racine must be controlled by the State nothing bad about the Mayor or the State of The City allowed!

Oh if Mayor John Dickert only knew what is coming to Racine he would shit bricks. If he thought CAR 25 programing was bad or the Good old boys or the wanta be good old boys think that the blogers were disrupting folks from Coming downtown they be packing bags.

Soon every car on I-94 into Northern IL will be able to hear the message of issues of Racine, folks using Racine in a Goggle search will be able to click and get video  to smart phones I pads on subjects that Mayor John Dickert not want seen.

The Hero of Racine He who thinks he controls all Media



Sorry The Hero of Racine!



Our Union smashing Money spending Mayor!




The Suicide Cult of Racine II


The power of The Suicide Cult  of Racine is huge in the minds of the members.

Kinda like me before I quit drinking, I thought I could quit any time some of them think Downtown has just so much to offer.

When I ask about issues the subject is changed, when I tell them that Waterford say does not think they should have to pay more money for Downtown, I get the old a stronger Downtown helps them! Of course it does I do hope then they come out for a New Arena for the Bucks, somehow I think that will be a long wait.

If I disagree they just get louder.

Excuses are made for The Mayor. The Mayor’s  Candidate  gets full support.

You try to explain that the Boaters are NOT coming to Racine and I get there is a plan …   Sometimes I can see them in the Bunker helping Hitler turn back the USSR at the Gates! They had a plan too.

After all the Mayor has the $$ that the Downtown needs so badly!  To see that money get spend on the Downtown all will be allowed, The Mayor can be the savoir!

Sadly when I question the spending vs say help the Homeless, I get put them on a Bus and force them out of town at the same time I get the old the out of town folks are coming in BMW’s  they will spend lots of money here because we have a good view!

Thing is Can you trust The Mayor  who goes back on his given word?  A Man who as I see it done some strange things to give CAR 25 to pals. Stories about the City Hall Bathrooms, issues on Park 6.

Then too they all most have to, who else has the money? No one, no one has the money to save Downtown Racine.

At least Jim Jones’s victims had a quick death. How long will the Downtown squirm before the spasms stop?

2013 will not end well for the Downtown.  Wait until the first Black buys a building at a tax sale that will be funny.

The Suicide Cult of Racine have YOU joined? Editoral


So I get asked this all the time, if the Mayor is doing  such a bad job why do so business leaders like him?

Easy its the only chance they have.

A story

Image that your a Downtown or Uptown business or property owner.  You see the same things we all do our taxes going up more business closing.

From your books you too know that sales are not what you like them to be and you know from the Mayor’s own words that taxes will be going up.

You followed the Porter’s idea and may be asking what is going on with that?

You hear The Mayor talk about doing something with Uptown

You may think of selling out and getting out but you see from the property listings that you may not get what you need should you bail. What other choice do you have then to believe that Mayor John Dickert can change things around.  Often I have seen others put energy in foolish ideas (read Rootworks) because the the emotional investment (not the money) is too much to leave.

Would someone lie about what will happen with RootWorks Would they lie about how great they will make Uptown?

Yet we know that earlier ideas have failed (Artist relocation) (Delta Hawk how many Jobs have they created)  but if Dickert fails you lose your business perhaps your property.

As well you know that properties owing back taxes for Years have not been seized, perhaps you think that the City will not allow the county to take it. Perhaps you think your membership in the DRC protects you somehow, or you simply chose to believe that the Mayor will save you.

So when you read about what his plans are for CAR 25 you say nothing because he needs this CATV station to carry out his plans and maybe his pals know what they are doing

When you read about Park 6 or the Place on 6th St you think who cares about Black owned bars that play Hip Hop they need to close because well they (Blacks) might keep your customers away  so if a few laws are bent its o.k.,  and how dare  a higher court overturn a Racine Court

Does not the City Hall Bathrooms look nice? Great Roundabout! Too bad about Station 5 and we have more police then we need, the Mayor said he had crime under control.  Sad to heat about “Miss Smith” getting raped but the way she dressed…  If only the Blogers quit writing bad things about Racine, the Mayor said more boaters would come..

The road goes on like this until the day  the County does seize your building or the taxes you try to pay you do not have the money to pay them..  So you pack your bags to perhaps to be homeless and ask what happened?

Nothing to Mayor John Dickert he will still get paid he and others are in office, perhaps nothing to FOJ they know the Mayor and perhaps s got the word about say Case moving out or the massive  lay offs at St Mary’s so they could get out

As for you you joined The Suicide Cult  of Racine.

Fact many at Jonestown drank the Kool Aid offered them after all, would  Jim Jones realty hurt anyone unless he had to?

Just trust the Mayor dear after all he looks so nice on TV
