John Manke is an active former Bay View resident who is involved in numerous neighborhood organizations, including the Bay View Historical Society, the Humboldt Park Fourth of July Association and the Shore Shore Farmers Market. He believes Bay View has a fine tradition in its past that we do not want to lose in the future.
With all of this snow and cold weather, it almost seems to be dog sled weather. During a recent snow storm, dog sleds would seem to be usable. The cities are running out of salt and prices on a bag of salt have increased very rapidly. When you drive your car now, watch out for potholes. Repair shops are doing a booming business on pothole damage. Supply houses are running short on tires and steering parts for cars today. It is possible to have over $ 1,000 damage on your car. If a sinkhole develops from a pothole, you could have your car fall inside and have major damage. If we had a decent governor, he could release some of his funding surplus to help our cities out with their pothole problem. He only seems to look into his mirror and see how great he looks to himself. I am happy that an election is coming soon. Maybe then we will get some help for our cities and people.
