An Easter Gift!


Why this week I received an early Ester gift!

This gift was a 85 page document about machinery row!

Yes 85 pages emails from and to the city from the properties owners on Water St that make up Machinery Row!

As well emails to and from Blackwell/staff and others on the development (or lack there of) this interesting idea.

As I read them I get the idea of kickbacks to the developer, escrow accounts set up for strange uses, lots of Complaining from the original owners on what was going on and the harsh feelings on the subject of working with Blackwell and the City.

I have read this twice as well as shown this to trusted others to get an understanding of what is going on.

This week I plan to share this with members of the Wisconsin Legislature in the hopes of letting them know of what I think is shady dealings in Racine so they can at least stop any more money from being spent by the State on this project.

As well be sending a letter outlining what I have to both HUD and POTUS for I hope for the Feds to stop any grants being given to this and with luck pulling some back.

This and other documents I have will be used as the bases of Ebooks on what I can only see as the most corrupt city in Wisconsin

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?







Hail the God of Racine! The Mayor Speaks assumes Godhood! My view




The Mayor Speaks assumes Godhood

From the Journal -Times 1/20/13

Since I began as mayor, I have requested that my departments look to find efficiencies and cost savings where possible. I have also requested that each area of the city look at ways to become sustainable; in other words, how you can pay for your efforts by adding value to the community.

Racine is a wonderful community full of great people and opportunities. Since I took office four years ago, I have made it my mission to put a positive light on Racine and let people know of all the great things happening here. I believe we should utilize every opportunity available to tell our story. Whether it is the newspapers, radio, the city website or our local television stations, including CAR25, we should be telling our story, whether it’s North Beach receiving its ranking as one of the best beaches in the world or the Racine in Bloom Award we recently received.

Our administration, as well as the city’s Cable Commission, have introduced a number of initiatives over the last several years aimed at broadening the scope and quality CAR25 in order to make it a source of quality information and programming about the value of the city of Racine as a tourist, business and lifestyle destination.

It is our position that, with modifications to its management and mission, CAR25 would be capable of producing quality programing which could then be used as valuable aids in promoting the City of Racine and even raise funds necessary to create a sustainable enterprise.

I have also worked to steer CAR25 in the direction of positive messaging and a regular programming schedule. My experience of working with a cable access channel for five years while in school has blessed me with the experience of seeing the vast potential a station can bring and furthermore, the true potential that lies within.

We have to constantly look for ways to create a better product for a cheaper cost. More importantly, I believe we have to provide a great message that demonstrates the positive things going on in Racine. While I understand the public nature of CAR25, I am concerned that some of the programming currently defeats the very purpose of a positive message for our city.

We tell these positive stories to attract developers and tourists alike. They in turn spend money in our stores or develop here using our workers and contribute to our community, adding to our tax base.

Unfortunately, the very producers that are opposing change are the ones currently providing programs that speak negatively about Racine. While that is their right, I believe we need to put our focus on a 21st century message and programming that informs and educates our community about the great things going on and what opportunities that are available to them daily.

I want to assure those who have expressed opposition to the proposed changes with CAR25, they will still have their access to production equipment and the free broadcast of their content. We are simply attempting to use the resources available to us in a more proactive and positive fashion to continue to promote the City of Racine as a work, play and lifestyle destination.

CAR25 currently costs roughly $100,000 per year, which is funded by revenues received from licensing fees and your tax dollars.

John Dickert is mayor of Racine.

“the very producers that are opposing change are the ones currently providing programs that speak negatively about Racine. While that is their right”

Thank you for understanding this

“I want to assure those who have expressed opposition to the proposed changes with CAR25, they will still have their access to production equipment and the free broadcast of their content.

After the Union contract issues the whole NSP past Law suits and the ones still coming to into court Do you think anyone trusts your word?
We also have seen with our own eyes your having information by Chase Hendrex removed from the desks of Alderman. Was not that an attempt to control communication of a member of the public to elected officials?

From First Amendment
…and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. You sir have no right to interfere.
How far are you willing to go to prevent the public from communicating to elected officials news you do not want them to see?

“CAR25 currently costs roughly $100,000 per year, which is funded by revenues received from licensing fees and your tax dollars.”

The City receives far more then this from ATT/Time Warner in fees how are taxes then paying for any of this?

I will also ask why once again those getting money from the City as I see it have personal connections with you?
This whole process of the RFP from the Beginning just sucks

I like CAR 25, however I use You Tube Goggle Hang Outs etc to get my messages out
my teaser at gets far more views then CAR 25
You sir have given me lots ideas to use for both the Go Go Girls and It Came From The Root River. You want folks to see Racine as others who live here do you got it

    It’s Sunday, after 5:00pm, so I figure the JT thought enough residents of Racine would be bombed on alcohol, or stoned on drugs, to be able to safely run this laughable drivel.


    The fools of Racine and their money are parted every single day – and the amount taken only grows greater every single day…..

    This piece should be under “COMEDY”. LOLOLOL!

    You wanna know something Racine – Racine is the laughing stock of the State in Madison – but everybody has to be somebody – so GO WITH IT!

    Dickert makes Barrett look like a genius!~

    Racine – the proud birthplace of Homer Simpson!

    How does the Mayor plan to cover up:
    We are number 1 in Unemployment (again)
    We are back to the days of daylight armed robberies
    Murder after murder gangs running wild
    The State Courts saying City actions on Black bars are illegal opening the city to yet more law suits
    The Downtown and Uptown areas look more empty then ever before
    Shunting down CAR 25 turning it into the John Dickert is God Network only goes to have the outside world see our Mayor as he is to so many a petty Dictator, trying to keep control over his city going into ruin.
    Mayor Dickert may think there is nothing wrong other the the ********* Blogers then too some think Reichert Court is the place to be

    Dear lying John:

    We don’t believe you. You lie and lie about everything and have cost us hundreds of thousands in legal fees. NO tax dollars are used for CAR 25. See, another lie! You just lie and lie to us, as does your lying cousin city administrator, and expect us to suck it up..

    We;re sick of your lies. We’re sick of you assuming that we are stupid enough to believe any more of your lies.

    How can a public official enter into a confidentiality agreement using public money? You are a lying thief and belong behind bars. That day may come sooner than you think, lying John.

    What in the world is Dickert talking about??? Telling Racine’s story? I just went and visited the streaming page. Does Dickert even know what is being broadcast on the channel? I can’t find anything negative or bad on the page, to the contrary, it all appears nice and positive. It doesn’t add up Dickert, you are NOT saving money or making anything positive at all, just look at your track record. Leave the community access channel alone and focus on important issues. SMH

Please members of the public read this

I put this story here for I expect before much longer the Paper will remove the comments posted

felt that what I and others said need to be documented


In the long run Dickert will win all he needs to do is end the funding, then hire out  pals to do work under under some City/County program  to tape events in the area.

As I would hope that the Alderman would put a stop to this but other then two or three they have no backbone and know who their master is. If you dare speak out you are punished. If you behave you might get to work at City Hall or get a neat title. One lerns fast to get along to know your place


Yes Racine keeps our reputation as I see it the most corrupt City in America
