  • When youre gambling with someoneelses money, who cares how high thestakes may go and whether you win orlose. But shooting craps with stolenmoney can get you in trouble, unless

    youre the mayor and the city council.On December 21, 2012, they ended up infront of a judge who slapped their handsand sent them home. Would you or I re-ceive such a soft reprimand if wed triedto steal 2 million bucks? Not likely, butthese are good men, not criminals. Uhhuh.One year ago, while the battle raged inWisconsins capital over workers rights,Racine politicians were pandering tolocal labor unions, hoping to secure theirsupport. Were with you, they claimed,lets make a deal. Lets get a contractsigned to protect you, and oh by the way,theres an election coming up and wehope we can count on you. Could youdistribute some literature, put up some

    signs, and some financial support wouldbe nice.With Governor Walker on the ropes, hisanti-labor agenda seemed in jeopardyand a quick deal to secure peace with theunions was a priority. If Walker were tolose, those unions might be inclined toup the ante and make greater demands.Surprisingly, despite a million signaturescalling for his recall, Walker prevailed inthe election. He managed to portray gov-ernment workers as spoiled and greedy,even though they had bargained manyconcessions before he destroyed theircollective bargaining rights. This meantActs 10 and 32 would go into full effect.That set the wheels to turning in theminds of our local politicians, who real-ized that theyd bet the wrong horse.They figured maybe they could just hitthe reset button on that contract they hadwith local labor unions. Just make theclaim that Acts 10 and 32 should beretroactive and nullify the contract. Whatthe heck, there were close to 2 millionbucks they could recover if it worked.Imagine all the wonderful things thatcould be accomplished with 2 millionbucks. Maybe some more phallic sym-bols like the ones on the city hall round-about.The scheme quickly gained support inthe city council, with past and presentcouncil presidents Greg Helding and JimKaplan leading the way. Only two alder-men recognized the foolishness of that

    STORY

    By Heather PremoHealthcare Network has been

    around since 1987 when thenumber of uninsured was at 32million. Today it is at a high of46 million. That is 46 millionpeople in the United States thatdo not have any insurance sothat something as simple as an-tibiotics for a respiratory infec-tion can be treated. So manyissues concerning the health-care crisis have travailed us foryears and years, but one thinghas stood honest and true andthat is that the Healthcare Net-work will continue the dedica-tion and vigilance to treat theresidents of Racine with thelove and compassion thateveryone should have.

    Without Healthcare Network,I would have possibly not beenable to write this story. Theyhave been coming through forme for the last several years. Iam on the waiting list forBadger Care, and I have been

    on that list for 3 years now. Alot has happened in 3 years. Ihave gotten several infectionsthat have required treatment; Ihave needed medications for al-lergies and asthma which areconstant. They have helped mewith all of it over the years. Iam not sure where I would behad they not been there for me.I love seeing the people there,as busy as they are, if just tosay Hello and Thank You withall my heart.

    Healthcare Network plays anessential role here in Racinethat has become a staple inhelping people survive in theharshness of the times. With do-nations from various organiza-tions, Healthcare Network maycontinue to provide for theneeds of individuals in Racinefor years to come.

    Now it is 2013 and this is the26th year in which HealthcareNetwork has been operating. In
