Gary’s Pet Jungle celebrates 20 wild years

…Johnson sells a lot of snakes and rodents from his shop. People – namely parents – often debate over whether or not to buy hamsters or gerbils.
Johnson recommends gerbils because hamsters are nocturnal and sometimes get “cranky” when people try to pet them during the day. “I’ve been bitten way less by gerbils than hamsters,” says Johnson.
"But rats make the best pets. They are intelligent and super, super sweet."
So how does Johnson compete with larger chain pet stores…?

Interactive art project plants LUV seats at bus stops

Artistic tree stumps mosaics, referred to as “LUV Downtown StreetSeats,” have recently sprouted up alongside Wisconsin Avenue bus stops between 4th and 8th streets. The stumps are topped with circular concrete slabs studded with an eclectic array of objects ranging from seashells and Scrabble pieces to strings of beads and shiny buttons.

Deficit attention disorder

…I don’t think that $1.8 billion number is a fair attack. It wasn’t fair when Walker used the similar number against Doyle and Barrett, and it’s not fair today, especially the way it’s being used to suggest that right now the state has a $1.8 billion bill due and those hired goons are again waiting just outside the door. That’s just not true and I wish my party would stop implying that.
What is fair game for Democrats to use, though, is the actual deficit Wisconsin is facing. Like the $140 million the state needed to come up with in early 2011, in early 2015 the state will need to find $396 million to patch the real, actual shortfall between spending and revenue this year. That is not speculation or imagination or even, as with Doyle’s deficit, fallout from a recession — that’s real, tangible financial mismanagement at the state level.
That’s right — Walker, who claimed budget management skills as his primary qualification to be your governor, has run up a deficit more than double what Jim Doyle did during the Great Recession…
