Shocking news about Koch donations

Some truth that the liberals/unions/Democrats in Wisconsin may not like.  It seems the Koch brothers didn’t only donate to Scott Walker and other Republicans.  They also donated to Democrats!

Assembly Democratic Campaign Committee $4,000.00
Bernard Schaber, Penny                                  $500.00
Colon, Pedro                                                    $250.00
Decker, Russ                                                   $1,000.00
Doyle, Jim                                                        $1,000.00
Galloway, Pam                                                 $500.00
Lautenschlager, Peg                                        $2,500.00
Nelson, Tom                                                     $500.00
Soletski, Jim                                                     $500.00
State Senate Democratic Committee             $4,250.00
Steinbrink, John                                               $250.00
Sullivan, Jim                                                    $500.00
Kreuser, James                                               $500.00

Be sure to point this out when approached by a “Recall Walker” person about signing the recall petition.  Especially if they bring up the Koch brothers.

Project Little Soldier

H/T – Right Wing Right Minded

With the massive number of soldiers being deployed to foreign lands, we would like to make their “Little Soldiers”, who are left behind, smile for the holidays.  It is hard enough for them to understand that their parents are underway, let alone the thought of spending the holidays without them.  Each military personnel has supplied us with a wish list of 2 gifts for each of their children.  We would like to make each child’s wish come true.

Starr donates championship memorabilia

Bart Starr is the first quarterback to win a Super Bowl, and now he’s the first former player to donate his rings to the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.

Starr donated his NFL championship rings from the 1961, ’65 and ’66 seasons on Saturday during a special announcement at the Hall of Fame, 1265 Lombardi Ave.

“What we’re looking at here is probably the most significant donation in the history of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame,” said Tom Murphy, Hall of Fame archivist and member of its board of directors.

Cherry Starr, Bart’s wife, also donated a necklace with charms from all five championships (1961-62, ’65-67) to the Hall of Fame. Players received a watch after the 1962 NFL title, and that also will be later sent to the Hall of Fame.

The items were immediately put on display Saturday.

Starr, who has been married for 56 years, said the donation was his wife’s idea. The rings were hanging in the family’s study and Cherry said she felt they could be put to better use.

“I thought what a great thing if thousands of people could enjoy seeing these rings and my necklace,” she said.

Starr still wears his 1967 Super Bowl ring, but also plans to donate it to the Hall of Fame one day.

“Anytime you have enjoyed success, it is because of the team around you,” Starr said to a crowd of Packers officials and friends. (Source: Green Bay Press Gazette)

Very classy move on the part of Bart and his wife.

Situation in Chile “far worse than imagined”

From Pastor Harrison’s Mercy Journeys blog.

“This event in Chile is far worse than ever imagined,” said Rev. Glenn Merritt, director of Disaster Response with LCMS World Relief and Human Care, who arrived in Chile March 19 with WR-HC’s Rev. Carlos Hernandez to assess earthquake damages with the Confessional Lutheran Church of Chile (IELCHI).

The death toll has reached 800 in Chile since the Feb. 27 earthquake and tsunami, and an estimated 500,000 homes were destroyed. Earlier this month, former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet reported that rebuilding could take up to three years and cost as much as $30 billion.

In the coastal town of Constitución, near the epicenter, four tsunami waves, one reaching 30-feet, washed away the first 6-8 blocks of beachfront property. Merritt said military divers searched Monday for more than 300 people still missing – many who were attending a party on an island peninsula as the waves hit.

Upwards of 2,500 displaced Chileans are living in six-by-eight-foot wooden structures at one government-run refugee camp in the coastal city. In the weeks following the earthquake, IELCHI pastors have gone door-to-door in these camps, assessing how people are doing and identifying what aid is needed.

“There is no water, no sanitation, no power, and not adequate food,” said Merritt of one emergency camp in Constitución. LCMS World Relief and Human Care, in partnership with the IELCHI, will explore beginning a feeding program at the camp and providing limited electrical services to each structure. Refugee families who do not qualify for government assistance are filling out grant applications with the IELCHI. The church will provide grants as it is able.

Go read the rest and see how you can help.
