    Executive Director of Rock County Historical Society Mike Reuter speaking about the new Tallman Technologies tour starting at the Tallman House, as well as other upcoming opportunities, offered by RCHS, to experience and learn about history of Rock County.


    State Senator Tim Cullen spoke about his experience serving the public, his thoughts on Act 10, and ways to reverse it.  Senator Cullen spoke about leaving the state with the other Democratic State Senators in 2011 and explained his reasons for doing so.  


    Speaking about the August 12th Democratic primary, Senator Cullen criticized two of the candidates running for State Senate.  Senator levied particularly harsh criticisms against Mike Sheridan whom he accused of not accurately explaining the process of reapportionment to the public, and not being ready to be Speaker of Assembly when elected to the post in 2008, following a short time in the Assembly.  At the same time, Senator Cullen  offered a strong endorsement of his former aid Austin Scieszinski.


    President of Blackhawk Technical College Dr. Eckert explained that passing the referendum on August 12th, is the only way for BTC to raise its budget. Dr. Eckert made it clear that the $4 million increase sought in the referendum is a permanent raise to the base, meaning that money will be collected on property taxes year after year. 


    For the last 20 minutes of the program, 3 of the more than a hundred Chinese students - Bryan, Andrew and Chris - spending the summer in Janesville, discussed being in Janesville and going to Craig High School.
