Winners & Losers
The Germantown Warhawk boy’s basketball team is a big winner with a win over
Coach Schowalter deserves a lot of credit for continuing to help this team with its basketball tactics, but even more for showing the guys what can be done to overcome adversity as they move forward in their lives.

Congratulations to the coaches and players.
Paul Ryan is a winner having had his latest six minutes of fame during the Health Care Summit when he succinctly explained the major problems with the Democrat health care reform package. It was apparent when President Obama opined that he had some issues with Ryan’s remarks but, in the interest of time, he’d forego further discussion.

Wisconsinites are losers given the continued push to release convicts in the Governor’s early release program which is putting the losers back on the street. There have been at least two instances of those who have been released being picked up already for having been involved in apparent criminal conduct.

Just because something can be done doesn’t make that something right. It is past time for our politicians who fail to be responsive to the will of their constituents to be permitted to run roughshod over those people.
