Coach bus crash on I-94 sends 11 to hospital

A crash of a coach bus on I-94 late Saturday night sent 11 passengers and the bus driver to the hospital.

From the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department:

On 01-24-15, at approximately 2338 hours, Kenosha County Sheriff’s Deputies with the assistance of Wisconsin State Patrol responded with the Bristol and Pleasant Prairie Fire Departments   to a Commercial Coach Bus crash in the 7500 block of the southbound lanes of Interstate 94 in Kenosha County, WI.  Rescue units from Pleasant Prairie, Bristol, Salem, City of Kenosha, Silver Lake, Somers and Newport (IL) responded as well. At the time of the crash, the bus was traveling southbound on Interstate 94 returning from Milwaukee, WI en route to the Chicago, IL area. The bus had 34 adult passengers on board at the time of the crash. The bus, a “Blue Bus Lines Charters and Tour” (Coach Style) commercial bus, was traveling at approximately 60 miles per hour, southbound on Interstate 94, when the driver of the bus had an apparent medical emergency and collapsed.  The bus drifted into the western concrete wall along the right shoulder of Interstate 94 striking the wall approximately 2 to 3 times before coming to rest.   No other vehicles were involved and the bus did not overturn. A bus passenger was able to gain control of the bus after realizing the driver was no longer in the driver’s seat.  The passenger stopped the bus in approximately the 8200 block of Interstate 94 southbound lanes. The driver of the bus, identified as 68-year old James E. Rogers of Chicago, IL, was transported to Aurora Hospital in Kenosha where he was admitted.  Rogers was cooperative with the investigation and was not ticketed. Eleven of the 34 adult passengers were also transported to three Kenosha area hospitals for non-life threatening injuries.   Four passengers were transported to Aurora Hospital, four passengers were transported to St. Catherine’s Hospital, and three were taken to Kenosha Hospital. The Interstate was not shut down as a result of the crash. The bus sustained minor damage to the passenger side and the crash was not weather related. Neither alcohol nor speed appear to be factors in this crash. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Gov. Walker rejects Kenosha casino; Rep. Kerkman calls decision “a true disappointment”

roulette-wheel-sxc-Richard-StylesGov. Scott Walker has informed the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs that he will not approve the establishment of a Menominee Tribe casino in Kenosha on the site of the shuttered Dairyland Greyhound Park.

In a media release issued Friday, Walker said:

After a comprehensive review of the potential economic impact of the proposed Kenosha casino project, the risk to the state’s taxpayers is too great. Due to the compacts negotiated by Governor Doyle, the current cost to taxpayers of approving the proposed casino project is up to $100 million and the long-term economic hit to the state budget would be a potential loss of hundreds of millions of dollars. We have had tremendous success in helping grow quality, family-supporting jobs in Kenosha, including the recent Amazon, InSinkErator, and Meijer Distribution Inc. expansions. We remain committed to using state resources effectively to continue growing the economy and creating jobs in Kenosha and around the state.”

State Rep. Samantha Kerkman, whose district includes most of Western Kenosha County, had been a strong advocate of approving the casino. She released the following statement Friday:

The announcement that Governor Walker has rejected the Kenosha casino comes as a true disappointment.  I am saddened at the loss of potential for Kenosha County and for the State of Wisconsin.  Great strides were made along the path to this determination and I greatly respect the diligence shown by Governor Walker to try to bring us to a more positive decision.  Ultimately, the compact negotiated by Governor Doyle with the Forest County Potawatomi provided more obstacles than could be reasonably overcome in the decision timeframe.  We need to keep our focus forward. We will continue to explore other opportunities to bring additional jobs to Kenosha and grow opportunity in southeastern Wisconsin through a pro-job and strong business focus.   While this particular option will not move forward, I believe that recent Kenosha boom will spark even more development and look forward to entertaining additional options for growing the Kenosha economy.”

UPDATE 12:25 p.m. — Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser issued this statement Friday:

As I have said all along, Kenosha County will be fine with or without the casino, but there is no denying that the casino would have brought an even bigger economic boost to the Kenosha County community, the region and the State … “I do hope that Governor Walker will work with us to do even more to attract new businesses and new jobs to our area and will put a greater emphasis on our infrastructure needs here. There is now a large tract of land that was the greyhound park that needs to be redeveloped. We hope state resources will be forthcoming to assist in these efforts … Kenosha County remains a red hot development area and we will work even harder to make up for all the potential jobs that would have been gained through the casino project. I believe in the future of Kenosha County and we will continue to thrive and grow.”

Kreuser also addressed the project’s advocates who worked for its approvals:

Your hard work and advocacy was not wasted. You fought a good fight, but now we need to come together to move the community forward without this project.”

UPDATE 12:27 p.m. — State Sen. Van Wanggaard issued this statement Friday:

While I respect the Governors decision to reject the Kenosha Casino, I believe this is the wrong choice for Kenosha, Racine and Wisconsin. This is especially true given the Menominee’s agreement to indemnify the state for lost revenue. Governor Doyle and his sweetheart compact with the Potawatomi have killed the largest private investment in Wisconsin history. This has cost the state over 1,600 jobs and a projected $1 billion in revenue. I will meet with my colleagues in the coming days to evaluate the situation and discuss what options we have to prevent this from occurring in the future. The good news is that the 21st Senate District is seeing an economic boom, and the area will continue to prosper even without a casino.”

Proponents of the casino said it would create 5,000 temporary and permanent jobs.

Snow likely this weekend

snowword-mf-jdurham-webThe National Weather Service says there’s a pretty good chance we will get some snow this weekend.

The local forecast includes a 60 percent chance of snow Saturday night and a 70 percent chance of snow Sunday. The snow should be mostly done by noon Sunday with 1 to 3 inches of accumulation before it’s all over.

We could also see some snow showers without accumulation today and tonight — just a 20 percent chance.

High temperatures are expected to remain in the mid to high 30s for the next few days, except for Monday and Tuesday when we could see high 20s.

Randall opposes contributing to Silver Lake library building purchase

The Randall Town Board is opposed to contributing to the purchase of a Community Library branch building in Silver Lake.

That leaves none of the four member municipalities besides Silver Lake willing to help pay for the $250,000 purchase and renovation cost.

Randall Town Board members discussed the issue Thursday night at a regular monthly meeting. No member expressed any interest in using additional tax dollars for the building purchase.

Town Chairman Bob Stoll said in his opinion, town taxpayers already send enough money to the Community Library system.

“My feeling is that we spend tax in excess of what we tax for fire protection and lake ordinance enforcement” on the library, Stoll said. “I am not a proponent of spending additional funds on it …”

Silver Lake had asked the other municipalities involved in the Community Library system to donate $50,000 each toward the purchase and renovation of a building for a library branch in the village. Recently, Twin Lakes and Paddock Lake have decided not to contribute. Salem town electors authorized the Salem Town Board to contribute $50,000 to the cost of the library building and renovations, but board members recently discussed the issue and decided they are not ready to complete that contribution at this time.

The library building has been controversial in Silver Lake, where some Village Board members challenged how the purchase was completed and even asked the District Attorney to investigate. The investigation found no criminal wrong doing.

As the conversion of the former day care business into a library has been stalled while the funding issue plays out, Silver Lake is considering leasing the property to Riverview School this summer as office space while extensive renovations take place at the school.

On Wednesday, Silver Lake President Sue Gerber said she has met with Riverview School district administrator Jon Schleusner about leasing  the library building for school administration operations this summer while the school building is undergoing renovations. She said the school board is expected to discuss the possible arrangement at this Monday’s school board meeting.

Hazardous materials Annual Inventory Report due in March

On April 17, 2013, a massive explosion at a fertilizer plant in central Texas killed 15 people and injured more than 160. The incident at the West Fertilizer Company is considered one of the worst industrial accidents in U.S. history. In the aftermath of that tragedy, questions have been raised about what information emergency first responders and the local residents have about the risk facilities in their neighborhood can pose.  That’s where the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) can help. The Community Right-to-Know provisions help increase the public’s knowledge and access to information on chemicals at individual facilities, their uses, and releases into the environment. States and communities, working with facilities, can use the information to improve chemical safety and protect public health and the environment.

EPCRA requires companies to document and report hazardous materials used and stored in its facilities.

On or before March 1, 2015, companies are required to submit an Annual Inventory Report for chemicals present the previous calendar year that were stored above the reporting threshold.  Facilities with more than 10 full-time equivalent employees may owe an inventory fee.

What is the purpose?

  • Identification of hazardous chemicals currently stored at a facility.
    Emergency planning and response.
    Community right-to-know.
    Which chemicals must be reported?

Extremely Hazardous Substances stored at 500 pounds or the threshold planning quantity (whichever is less) at any one time. For list of substances go to: http://emergencymanagement.wi. gov/EPCRA/program.asp

Any hazardous chemical requiring a safety data sheet under the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard and being stored at 10,000 pounds or more.
Where do facilities report chemicals?

Go to Wisconsin Hazmat Online Planning and Reporting System (WHOPRS) at: https://whoprs.wisconsin.gov/
Facilities can also submit hard copy reports.  These need to be submitted to Wisconsin Emergency Management (WEM) so that the information can be data entered into the online system.  In Wisconsin hard copy reports do not need to be submitted to the LEPC and Local Fire Department as the online system meets this requirement.

More detailed information is available on the Wisconsin Emergency Management web site.  For more information please go to http://emergencymanagement.wi. gov.

Facilities that would like additional information should contact the Kenosha County Emergency Management Office at 262-605-7900.

Long-time Randall town Clerk Phyllis Kaskin retiring

randall-flag-polePhyllis Kaskin, who has been Randall town clerk for almost 50 years, is edging closer to retirement from that position.

Kaskin said this week she has decided to retire, but an effective date has not been decided yet.

Meanwhile, the town is advertising for candidates interested in filling the part-time position.

In November, town electors rejected an initiative to combine the clerk and treasurer positions into a single job. In discussion on the move, Chairman Bob Stoll said the board was seeking flexibility to deal with the day Kaskin, clerk since 1967, retires.

SLFD interi fire Chief Allison Draeger just after being presented her chief’s helmet at Wednesday’s Silver Lake Village Board meeting.

Allison Draeger was appointed by the Silver Lake Village Board as interim chief of the Silver Lake Fire Department at Wednesday’s regular Village Board meeting.

The vote was 5-0 with Trustees Carolyn Dodge and Sabrina Moran abstaining.

The appointment was subject to the Draeger working out terms with the village attorney and Emergency Services Committee Chairman Roger Johnson.

The vote took place after a 60-minute executive (closed to the public) session at the end of the village board meeting.

After the vote, Draeger was presented with the chief’s helmet by Assistant Chief Roger Pattie.

Draeger has been serving as chief after being elected by department membership to the post this summer in the wake of the resignation of David Kordecki as chief. While Draeger has been allowed to serve as the head of the department, the Village Board has never formally recognized her as chief.

The village is also conducting a process to hire a permanent fire chief.
