About this story: https://blnnews.com/2017/12/22/food-ban-at-miller-park/
A few people are trying to convince me that food won’t be banned at Miller Park, but I can’t get them to explain what Jay Tetzloff meant when he aid:
“Once we have a concession stand you won’t be able to bring your food in”
I’m told that when the concession stand opens food will not be allowed in the zoo. So, if it’s not allowed in the zoo and the concession stand is open, where exactly will people not be allowed to bring in food?
Remember, wherever that is, it only applies to when the concession stand is open. I doubt that means food can be brought in the zoo if concession stand is closed.
If it’s not the zoo, the only other place is the park. I also don’t have an explanation of how they plan to handle food allergies. Are they wanting people to eat the food even if it kills them? (exaggeration on purpose)
I’ve been criticized for not asking Jay Tetzloff myself. I learned over the almost 6 years of writing who can be trusted to not lie, invent their own truth, or just give me spin. Jay and I have never interacted, so I don’t need to waste my time trying to get his talking points. I’ve already got him on video.
I might feel differently if the local media ever asked my opinion when doing stories on things I’ve uncovered. The Pantagraph of late has referred to me as a “local blogger” and a “critic”. I realize it must kill them that I break more news than they do, but if they are going to read every story I write (they do!), they could at least use my name when something like the oaths of office is so big they can’t ignore the story. They were present for the illegal oaths and didn’t notice, but they were more than happy to print Renner’s Obama oath re-take story like it was equivalent.
I’m merely a counter-balance to the one-sided reporting by most of the rest of the media.
Normal West football:
I’ve been talking to a number of people with intimate knowledge of Coach Hess’s “resignation”. They’ve given me some direction and things I can pursue, I’ve told them some procedural points they didn’t realize.
This story is far from dead. The students and parents deserve answers. The program may find support lacking next season if bully’s are in charge of the team. The Unit 5 School Board owes everyone involved an explanation. Every one I’ve talked to does not believe the resignation was voluntary.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!
I will be posting the same Christmas message tomorrow I’ve posted for at least 3 years. It’s too perfect to replace. See you tomorrow!
