New pictures of the Butterfly for the SHS Alumni Association!! "Launching Leaders!" This is the back - which has a few surprises!
Hey, did you hear about the bill over there in Madison allowing 10 year olds to learn to shoot guns? Apparently, the age used to be 12 but I guess these kids were so responsible the age was lowered two more years and with a big majority vote. As one who works with 10 and 12 year olds, let me just say this, “DUCK!!!!”. Sponsors of the bill are trying to quell peoples’ concerns by assuring them that children will be accompanied by mentors who will have to be at least 18. So picture this 18 year old teaching a 10 year old how to hunt in the great north woods. November, look out. This is not the focus of this blog, but doesn’t ten seem a little young?
Three ladies in their eighties sat on a bench in Central Park last week. Behind them was a hillside covered with flowering pink bushes, and Adolph wandered past looking in the other direction.

This morning the sun is rising over our great lake, in this, our democratic village of Shorewood.
Michael Jackson died unexpectedly yesterday, and that is about all you hear about on the TV and radio, and read in the papers.
He was musically talented, and a showman.
