Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Happy 233th Birthday Marine Corps


Today marks the United Sates Marine Corps 233rd birthday. My favorite Marine is my father (pictured left), who is now 90 years old

My neighbor's sons are a little younger; I've known them ever since they were little boys. The oldest returned from Iraq this year. He is in his early 20s. Their 3rd son, 19 years old, is in Japan awaiting deployment to Iraq.

But whatever your age, my thanks to you, Marines, for willingly taking the tougher road for us.
