ThIS IS A MOMENT OF REFLECTION OF THE LEADERSHIP OF THIS COUNTRY,
of what type of democracy we want and country we are going to have, whether we are going to be one that respects the Constitution and rule of law or endless political conflict, or the hooliganism that we are seeing on the streEts of our nation’s Capitol today.
U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.)
– quoted in a Jan. 6 WEAU 13 News report about Trump supporters breaking into the U.S. Capitol to disrupt the tallying of electoral votes that confirmed the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who will take office Jan. 20.
It will be an adventure. ... It’s an opportunity of a lifetime and it’s hard to pass that up.
ALICE IN DAIRYLAND
–quoted in a Jan. 8 WEAU 13 News report titled “Alice in Dairyland makes history.” Nunes, of Chippewa Falls, will be the first Alice in Dairyland in the program’s 73-year history to hold the title for two consecutive years. This year, the position is largely virtual.
Seeing the students is amazing. ... They’ve been reminded of social distancing. They’ve been reminded to sanitize their hands. They’ve been wearing their masks no problem.
