Shop with Amazon Smile and Amazon donates to the charity of your choice!

 I just noticed this now.   (Well actually, I believe this was brought up to me in the past but I didn't fully understand.)   I shop at Amazon all the time, so I love this. has a feature where it donates 0.5% of your purchase to a charity of your choice.  All you need to do is go to, select the charity you want, and make your future purchase from this site.
If you shop at Amazon anyway, you might as well use this page and help a charity that means something to you.  Nothing will change if you shop from this site.  You will still have your Prime membership (if you have one).  Prices remain the same.  You still get free shipping deals.   I am listing some of the Cudahy charities that you can donate to via
  • Cudahy-St Francis Interfaith Program For The Elderly 

  • Cudahy Family Library Endowment Fund Inc

  • Project Concern Of Cudahy-St Francis Inc

  • Cudahy Sports Boosters Inc (Baseball, Softball)

  • Cudahy-St Francis Little Baseball Association Inc

  • Pioneer Drum And Bugle Corps Inc

  • Leslyn-Ettes Baton Twirling Corps Inc

  • Nativity Of The Lord Congregation

  • St John Ev Lutheran Church & Cdc & Dev Ctr

  • PTA Wisconsin Lincoln School 

  • PTA Wisconsin Je Jones PTA

Summer Concert Series 2014 - Milt Vretenar Municipal Park

I was going to post this before last Wednesday.  However, I became busy and forgot.   By the time I thought about it again, it was Wednesday night and music filled our neighborhood as my reminder.  (It was a cold, wet Wednesday night. We were lucky enough to listen the music from our warm house.)

Sign this Petition! Tell Brixmor to Restore Packard Plaza.

The petition below is for anyone who has ever driven by Packard Plaza in Cudahy and felt some level of surprise (or disgust) by the lack of business and the quality of the buildings.  

Hopefully we get a lot of people to sign this. 
For me, this petition basically says that we are opposed to having a coorporate neighbor, Brixmor, Corp., ignoring the upkeep of their property and ignoring the concerns of good tenants, causing many of them to leave.  For our city (and the surrounding cities), Packard Plaza is a lot more than a tax write-off than can be dismissed and ignored.
This petition was started by a member of the Cudahy Town Hall Facebook group.  Thank you Luanne Peterson for starting this!

Cudahy School Board Forum Video Recording

 Here is a video of the Cudahy School Board Forum that was held on 2/11/14.

Before you watch the videos below, keep the following things in mind:
  • The person videotaping the event is an amateur (ME). 
  • The video was recorded by my new very cool camera, which specializes in taking pictures not recording videos. 
  • The video recording feature of my camera turns off every 16 minutes! This is why there are six parts.
  • If you listen closely, you will hear me whisper and mumble.
  • Most important, the content of the recordings are very informative.  Even if you choose not to watch all six parts of the video (about 90 minutes), it is still very informative.
As I've said in previous blog posts, it is all too easy to either not vote (especially in primary elections) or to vote based off of a neighbor's suggestion, a sign we see on a street corner, or on a familiar sounding name. 
If we want our city to keep moving forward, it is essential that our community makes an informed vote.  Our primary election for school board is on Tuesday, February 18.
