I’m up to my eyeballs in yoga. The yoga studio I’m going to, YogAslyum, is simply amazing. They have really created an atmosphere where people want to be, enjoy the workout, and are fully supported by the instructors as well as the other classmates. Can I do this super hard pose? YES YOU CAN! And they all smile while they tell you that you can do it too.
After attending the vinyasa classes for two weeks, I finally felt up to the power yoga class — which was taught by my very first yoga instructor when I began yoga 13 years ago. That was yesterday, and this morning my glutes were killing me! Then, my husband told me to go to the 10 a.m. yoga class today, rather than the 5 p.m. vinyasa class. Well, the 10 a.m. class is called Strength and Wellness. It focuses on my upper body and core, and I almost died. Especially when I got to the class at 10 a.m. and was all set to do my normal 75 minute class, then go about the rest of my day. However, at about 10:10 a.m. I was informed that I had just committed myself to 120 minutes of the hardest class on the schedule, AND it was taught by THE YOGA NAZI (her words, not mine).
Outgoing Village President Dick Rechlicz is making sure he takes advantage of the Office of Village President for every opportunity to get as much business as possible for himself and his law firm before the term expires in April of 2009.
The Village President has apparently recruited quite a few new clients for himself as a real estate attorney during his nearly four years in office that were never his clients before he became Village President in 2005 as "word" quickly spread that if business people wanted their projects and proposals approved by the Menomonee Falls Village Board they would have to "go through" him to get it done.
Thanks to the generous gift from St. Mary's Alumni John Schilling we're proceeding with our Technology Forward program with the purchase of five SMART boards for our classrooms.
The SMART boards are interactive white boards that enhance the learning environment.
We're thrilled to be able to offer this new learning tool to our students and teachers.
Great things are happening at St. Mary's - come check us out at our open house on January 25, 2009 from 11a.m.- 2p.m.
I haven't heard from him in quite a while, but I'm sure that he will contact me soon with some appropriate observations. It seems that this election season promises us another interesting village race and the circus that will certainly go with it.
A perennial candidate for Village President who shall remain shameless tried, unsuccessfully, to besmirch the good name of. Rick Rechlicz. Rick Rechlicz is our current and outgoing Village President of Menomonee Falls.
I don't know Mr. Rechlicz personally but I do know when I had questions or issues with the Village he was easy to access and always provided a straight and pragmatic answer. We didn't always agree but at least I understood his reasoning.
Attorney general asks about Falls party
Inquiry in response to some who say village business was discussed

Published: February 12, 2004
The state attorney general's office has asked Village Attorney Mike Morse for "information or opinions" about an invitation-only holiday party thrown by Village President Jefferson Davis for political appointees and trustees. The attorney general's letter, dated Dec. 22 and signed by Steven Tinker, the director of criminal litigation for the office's Antitrust and Consumer Protection Unit, is in response to an anonymous letter that included a copy of a Dec. 12 Journal Sentinel article that detailed Davis' holiday party, at which, those present said, village business was discussed.
The Wisconsin open meetings law requires advance public notice before a quorum of municipal officials meets to discuss public business. The village released the letter from Tinker after the Journal Sentinel filed an open records request asking for it Jan. 28. Morse declined to release his response, which he said was dated Feb. 3, because it fell outside the range of dates in the newspaper's records request. Morse said he could not release his letter without giving notice to any village officials mentioned in it and giving them five days to augment the letter. Morse said he told Tinker that he believes the village did not have to provide notice for the party. Morse said that even though it didn't have to, the village should have given notice for the holiday party, which members of the Village Board, Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals attended. He said officials are reminded to not discuss official business at such parties.

Village President Jefferson Davis has acted in an unprofessional manner and would put the village at legal risk if he didn't change, an investigation has found. The investigation, conducted by a lawyer and other village officials, stemmed from harassment complaints filed by two village workers who said Davis created a "hostile work environment" through "hostile, intimidating and offensive actions." The village paid the lawyer more than $3,700.
I miss WKTI. As much as I enjoy hearing some of the songs at the new station, 94.5 Lake FM, the format on a whole is really not my cup of tea. I mean, who really wants to hear Captain & Tennille followed by Motley Crue? I sure don't.
In my opinion, the choices in Milwaukee for radio stations that play music are getting slim, unless you like this anything goes format.

A Time of Reflection with Transition of Administrations in Washington, D.C....Laus Deo, "Praise be to God"
For those of you that have paid attention, I think that the primary reason the NY governor didn't choose Caroline Kennedy to step into Hillary's senate seat was obvious. She couldn't put more than six words together in a sentence without the interjection - "ya know."
My only remaining question: How could NY voters have chosen a carpetbagger from Arkansas to be their representative on the senate in the first place?

I was as surprised as anyone to hear the good news about Woodman's Food Markets Inc.opening a store in the Falls. What was more surprising was where they decided to locate it. I had two listings that I was hoping they would consider but that was not to be.
Yesterday the Oscar nominees were announced, and that means one thing: my quest to see all of the nominated movies prior to the Oscar ceremony has begun.
I have one month to see them all. And the way that I see the movies is a lot like a the way a someone goes about participating in a hot dog eating contest: I just get them all in until there aren’t any left. There is no picking and choosing, I don’t see the ones I want to first and the ones I don’t want to last. If it’s on DVD I push it to the top of my Netflix Queue (I actually have The Visitor and The Duchess already), and if Netflix doesn’t ship it to me, I stalk my local Blockbuster until it’s in stock and then I rent it. If I have the chance to go to the movie theater, I jump on it and I see whatever is starting at the time I’m there.
Here is the fourth edition of the continuing saga of a past village president:
The Menomonee Falls Community Education & Recreation Department is looking for individuals interested in working with its Summer Kids INC Program (Playgrounds). This is a great opportunity for college students working towards a degree in education, teachers who are looking for something to keep them busy during the summer, or anyone who just has a passion for working with children! Leaders are generally scheduled 35 to 40 hours per week.
The program is scheduled to start Wednesday, June 17 (providing the School District of Menomonee Falls has no more snow/cold days) and run through August 28. During the last two weeks of August the program is reduced from two sites to one, resulting in a reduction of staff. Staff training and in-services will take place during the first part of June.
