Friday’s letter to the editor may haveseemed harsh to some. OK, probably morethan some.At times, that is the nature of a letter tothe editor.In today’s response I believe we can seethrough the red, black, blue and gold andcome to some type of understanding.It seems a lot of energy is expended ondefending one school or the other instead of celebrating the good things they both accom-plish.It is sad that some have to make the goodfor one into something bad for the other. Itdoesn’t have to be that way.I don’t know if the author of Friday’s letteris aware that St. John’s sent a congratula-tions and good luck banner to their Jeffersoncounterparts prior to Thursday’s game. TheLady ‘Cats also received them from other areaschools. Those who were their rivals duringthe season became their fans. The area bandedtogether for a common good. They all cheeredfor the ‘Cats to bring home a title. Theycouldn’t be there, so they wanted Jefferson todo well. It makes us all look good.It is unfortunate that our two schools’paths sometimes cross in sports, forcing ourcommunity to choose sides. I get somewhatconfused when this oozes over into everydaylife. What is the purpose? Who or what doesit serve?Our schools’ jobs are turn out productive,educated, successful young adults who go onto work, college or the military. All three areintegral parts of our lives. We need people todo all three. Everyone has a role in weavingour society together.School pride and spirit is a wonderfulthing. It promotes unity and a common goal.Sports promote teamwork, goal-setting andhard work.When I was in high school, I used to watchas the St. Johners filed in off the bus for HomeEc., Ag and Industrial Arts. I was enamoredby the uniforms and in the winter, I oftenwondered what the heck the girls in skirtswere thinking. It was cold outside.Never once did I think negative thoughts.They were just kids that came in to takeclasses. They weren’t rude or disruptive. Theywere just kids who wore uniforms instead of jeans. It was really simple. No one told meI wasn’t supposed to like them. No one saidthey were from the “other” school. I nevergot the “us vs. them” thing. It wasn’t an issuefor me. I don’t even remember anyone talkingabout it.When our children are young, they playin city leagues. Wildcats and Blue Jays areside by side. They work together. Teamwork,playing the best they can and, yes, winning, isthe goal. Not what school they attend. Theirparents sit side by side behind the plate or inthe stadium and root for the whole team —cats and birds alike.I think our energy could be better spent onmaking our community an even better place tolive and an example to others.I’ve seen what we can accomplish whenwe join together. Look around.People, it’s time to build a bridge — andget over it. Have you even looked on the“other” side?

Scott Walker’s plan todrastically curb collectivebargaining rights for publicworkers in Wisconsin took aturn Friday that could forcea dramatic rebooting of theentire legislative process.A judge temporarilyblocked the law from takingeffect, raising the possibilitythat the Legislature may haveto vote again to pass the billthat attracted protests as largeas 85,000 people, motivatedSenate Democrats to escapeto Illinois for three weeks andmade Wisconsin the focus of the national fight over unionrights.But Walker’s spokesmanand Republican legislativeleaders indicated they wouldpress on with the court battlerather than consider passingthe bill again.“We fully expect anappeals court will find that theLegislature followed the lawperfectly and likely find thattoday’s ruling was a significantoverreach,” Senate MajorityLeader Scott Fitzgerald andhis brother, Assembly SpeakerJeff Fitzgerald, said in a jointstatement. “We highly doubta Dane County judge has theauthority to tell the Legislaturehow to carry out its constitu-tional duty.”Dane County DistrictJudge Maryann Sumi grant-ed the temporary restrainingorder in response to a lawsuitfiled by the local Democraticdistrict attorney, alleging thatRepublican lawmakers violat-ed the state’s open meetingslaw by hastily convening aspecial committee before theSenate passed the bill.Sumi said her ruling wouldnot prevent the Legislaturefrom reconvening the com-mittee with proper notice andpassing the bill again.In addition to restrictingthe bargaining rights, the lawwould require most publicworkers in the state to con-tribute more to their pensionand health care costs, changesthat will amount on aver-age to an 8 percent pay cut.Walker’s spokesman CullenWerwie was confident the billwould become law in the nearfuture.“This legislation is stillworking through the legal pro-cess,” Werwie said.Republican AttorneyGeneral J.B. Van Hollen saidthe decision will be appealedbecause the Legislature andthe governor, not a judge,are responsible for enactinglaws and can’t be blocked ina dispute over the proceduresunder which a law is passed.His spokesman Bill Coshsaid an appeal would be filedMonday.
