Daily Bread for 10.25.15 – 2017

Good morning, Whitewater.

We’ll have a sunny Sunday with a high of sixty.  Sunrise is 7:21 and sunset 5:56, for 10h 35m 36s of daytime.  The moon is a waxing gibbous with 94.1% of its visible disk illuminated.

Friday’s FW poll asked whether readers thought, regardless of their own politics, that the Benghazi hearings on Thursday with former Sec. Clinton were useful or wasteful.  A clear majority (79.31% of respondents said that they were wasteful.)

Over on the righthand sidebar, there’s a new widget entitled, Key Topics (Alphabetically Listed).  There are many important topics facing the city, but in this box I’ll keep an alphabetized list of those issues I’m watching  & thinking about for the city.  An orderly, plainly-stated focus is important.  I’ve been reviewing the list once each season; many of these topics are likely to remain far beyond one season, as they’re still pressing, unresolved matters before our city.

On this day six-hundred years ago, in 1415, Britain defeats France at Agincourt:

On this day in 1836, a territorial first takes place:

1836 – Belmont-Wisconsin Territory 1836 Established

On this date the first legislative session of the Wisconsin territory convened in Belmont, Wisconsin. During this first session, forty-two laws were put in the statute books. At this time, the Territory of Wisconsin included all of present-day Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and part of the two Dakotas.
