Brian, thanks for the info, on my way there now!!!!
Chris March 26, 2014 at 01:00 pm
Great store, really nice personnel -- AND I made my first purchase. So happy to have them in theRead More neighborhood.
squeaky March 26, 2014 at 03:41 pm
spent 31/2 hours there, great store, friendly personnel. If you can't find it there, you can't findRead More it anywhere. Great selection

Thank you President Obama. The failed policies of the Bush administration are finally being fixed.
Mr Lundt March 22, 2014 at 08:15 am
Nice job Walker. Your sound fiscal planning continues to pay dividends.
The Waukesha Common Council suspended Kicker's Pub & Grub's liquor license for 10 days.
Mr Lundt March 19, 2014 at 09:02 am
Minors drinking aside for a moment---Radmer acted like a total fool. What this really exposed for meRead More was the total lack of sound judgment of the owner. I still question the amount of resources used on this given all of the other bigger issues in Waukesha. Perhaps the police knew a bit more about the nature of the bar owner and THAT led to legitimate concerns that extend beyond sting attempts.

Hopefully the bartender's will pull out their cell phones and record any ongoing police harassment.
Johnny Seed March 19, 2014 at 10:19 pm
To close a local business because of an incident that would not have occurred if the policeRead More department had not had minors break the law to begin with is wrong. Based on this article and other incidents including legal situations the taxpayers of Waukesha should consider some changes.

Only 4 percent of adults and 4 percent of children suffer peanut allergies ...
Vicky Kujawa March 19, 2014 at 10:02 pm
If someone was allergic to nuts they would not be able to be on this board lol!
Diana Flores March 21, 2014 at 01:16 pm
wow I can't believe that only one piece of candy had a peanut out of the 24 candies in the box!
Carl Spackler March 18, 2014 at 02:56 pm
If he or the staff cannot follow the rules they need take the consequences. I believe the police doRead More have the duty to make sure bars are following orders for the safely of our community. Don't start knocking the police for doing the job they are required to do. Serving underage people is an actual crime.
Waukesha Girl March 18, 2014 at 03:05 pm
and what happens when underage kids get served and can't handle it, they go into the neighborhoodsRead More across the street and cause trouble in those virtual slums that you refer to above. I see no problem with the cops going into bars whether it be as a sting operation, or checking ID's. they are not hassling business owners, and what if, just what if, one time they go into a bar that is in the process of being robbed and save the day, it can and does happen - so keep up the good work City PD.
Mr Lundt March 18, 2014 at 03:59 pm
No one argues that drunk kids are a good thing. However with limited resources were drunk kids atRead More this bar a Waukesha problem? Where on the list would it rank and what else were these officers NOT doing that would have ranked higher on the list.

T. Smith: Truthfully I didn't expect you to comment no less start an argument with me.
Vincent January 30, 2014 at 07:16 am
Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 09:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.

Someone mistakenly posted to the Buckhead Patch and now every time someone responds to someone elseRead More via their email, it goes here. Respond through the Royal Oak Patch website to get it back on track.

Stan - u should check your view settings. It seems like your comments contain a **** load ofRead More periods.
stanley seigler January 27, 2014 at 07:58 am
RE periods...PATCH could eliminate the periods if they would format the comment section to recognizeRead More paragraphs... ......................................................................................... apologies if periods annoy ...they are an attempt to recognizes paragraphs ......................................................................................... anyone, any suggestions? would '+++' be better??? ......................................................................................... BTW not sure if 'T' is 'bustin my whatever'...but i have no idea what view settings are or how to check them...

Just another Obamanation. A disgusting president.
Stephen D. Clark January 18, 2014 at 10:03 am
Baloney. The "disgusting" president was the one who falsely alleged a threat to theRead More national security of the United States in order to dishonestly justify the Invasion of Iraq, which condemned 4,486 American armed forces members (http://icasualties.org/) to futile deaths and sparked a conflagration that has consumed the lives of what has been scientifically estimated as well over a million Iraqis (http://www.globalresearch.ca/new-analysis-confirms-1-million-iraq-casualties/7950).

don't expect employers to call you back. most managers are busy and they can forget things. callRead More them a few days after the interview. good news is their are jobs... if you want to work retail for 8 bucks/hour. who can live on that? hard to not take it personally. I applied for a driver at pizza hut... was turned down via email, no meeting, no interview... I have lots of work experience, no criminal record, no accidents or points... no drug issues... how can they turn me down based on a resume and email? my age I'm guessing.

Jamie, I completely support spending tax payer dollars on audits! It is a small price to pay toRead More ensure that the Americans are not getting robbed via acts of fraud. I work in government, at the state level. I personally know of fraudulent hiring practices that have occurred within our agency, including someone stacking the deck by having two family members of a job applicant seated on a job interview panel. That is blatant corruption. Thank God for "snitches"! Such corruption is even more likely where profit is involved, thus the reported misuse of H1b visas. Audits to prevent fraud and corruption are needed. Yes, they cost, but in the long run, it is money well spent.

How about not re-electing any more incumbents? Remember the D.R.I.P campaign? Don't ReelectRead More Incumbent Politicians.
Sun Tzu January 24, 2014 at 02:31 pm
Sorry folks but I just don't think it's fair to burden future generations with the debt ofRead More quantitative easing. I starting selling of quite a bit of my stocks for more tangible assets and most likely with sell of a fair amount more next week. I wish the best of luck to all of you.
