The Constitution requires the president and Senate to act on Supreme Court vacancies regardless of political expediency

We agree with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Let us rephrase that: We agree with what Justice Scalia would have said if he were alive to comment on the United States Supreme Court vacancy caused by his death.

Scalia would have said the president is required by the Constitution to appoint judges to the Supreme Court when the court has fewer than its full complement of nine members and the Senate is required to vote on those appointments.

We know Scalia would have said that because every vote he recorded in his 30 years on the high court was grounded in his belief that the Constitution in these times means what it said when it was written in 1787 and is not subject to interpretation based on evolving political beliefs and social mores.

Scalia would have found no nuance, gray area or hedging in the words of Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution: “The president shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint . . . judges of the Supreme Court.”

Many have taken issue with Scalia’s so-called originalist interpretation of the Constitution, but most of the members of Congress and the presidential candidates who are now claiming it is wrong for President Obama to nominate a replacement for Scalia have been big fans of the late justice’s unrelenting judicial conservatism.

Therein lies the irony of the pledge by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to refuse to hold hearings on any Supreme Court nomination made by the current president. McConnell and the senators who support blocking hearings on a Supreme Court nominee not only would prevent the chief executive from performing his constitutionally mandated duty, they would refuse to carry out the advise-and-consent duty the Constitution requires of them. Justice Scalia would not approve.

The argument over the threatened obstruction by the Senate majority is especially intense in Wisconsin because the state is the battleground for an election that will help determine which political party will control the U.S. Senate next year. Money is flowing into the campaigns of Republican Sen. Ron Johnson and Democratic challenger Russ Feingold from groups on both sides of the Supreme Court controversy.

The candidates are in full cry in support of their party’s position on filling the court vacancy, Feingold in favor of Obama making a nomination and the Senate acting on it, Johnson in favor of blocking any nomination until a new president is elected. 

Johnson and other supporters of the latter view are wont to say “the American people should decide,” meaning the nomination should be put off until it can be made by the president chosen by voters to take office in January. That may resonate as a sound bite, but it lacks in logic, for the people have already decided. They did that when they elected Barack Obama. His responsibilities as president will not end until he leaves office in about 11 months, and he has said he will fulfill his responsibility to name a Supreme Court justice.

Politicians on both sides of the issue have axes to grind, but the public has its own compelling interest in having the court restored to its full strength as soon as possible: With only eight members, a 4-4 tie is considered likely on some of the most important issues on the Supreme Court docket, including those affecting immigration, union membership, abortion, climate change, racism and various individual rights. Supreme Court deadlocks will mean the outcome of these issues will be determined by lower court decisions.

As the Constitution makes crystal clear, that’s not how the system is supposed to work. Political convenience is not an excuse to ignore the document that senators who would shirk their duty to vote on a Supreme Court nominee profess to revere.

In deciding how to protect its past, Grafton can look to Port for an example of historic preservation that has improved and inspired a community

Historic preservation efforts can strengthen a community by saving and sharing things from its past that are an important part of its identity. Or they can tear communities apart with well-intentioned but over-reaching approaches that preserve history at the cost of property rights.

In Grafton, such efforts do neither because they are all but nonexistent. Members of the village’s Historic Preservation Committee admit as much and are considering disbanding in favor of creating a historical society that, independent of government, would be a nonprofit organization better suited to inspiring community participation and able to solicit tax-deductible donations to fund preservation efforts. 

It’s a promising concept, and to see the potential such an organization has to offer, Grafton needs only to look a short distance to the north where the Port Washington Historical Society has proven to be a model of success.

Founded in 1991, the Port Washington Historical Society has brought an enlightened preservation approach to the city that instead of dividing it has done much to unite it in a common goal of protecting and highlighting Port’s important past. To show for its efforts, the organization owns and operates two prominent museums and a research center and has amassed a large core of dedicated volunteers and generous benefactors.

That’s not how historic preservation efforts work everywhere. In communities throughout the state and country, preservation commissions empowered by local ordinances yield considerable authority when it comes to deciding what properties to preserve and how to preserve them. Sometimes these efforts are successful and well-received. Other times they are divisive and counterproductive, burdening the mission of historic preservation with debilitating controversy.

An indication of that came last year when two Republican state lawmakers, Rep. Rob Brooks of Saukville and Sen. Frank Lasee of De Pere, introduced legislation that would prohibit municipalities from designating properties as historic landmarks without the consent of their owners. Not surprisingly, the bill sparked almost immediate controversy, with property-rights advocates praising it and historic preservationists blasting it.

Such controversies don’t exist in Port Washington, where historic preservation has been a mission led by the nonprofit Historical Society, embraced by city government and supported by residents. 

This is some of what has been accomplished:

n The Historical Society acquired and restored the 1860 lighthouse atop St. Mary’s Hill that it now operates as the Light Station museum, which is particularly well-suited to exhibiting the city’s maritime past.

n A downtown storefront dating to 1852 is now the organization’s Resource Center, which houses its archives and offices and is used for exhibits and presentations that are open to the public.

n The crowning achievement of the Historical Society, the Port Exploreum, opened last year on Franklin Street in a 1907 commercial building known as the Gentlemen’s Club. Preservation of the building aside, the project is immensely valuable because of what it has introduced to the city — not a musty museum filled with artifacts but an engaging, interactive facility that uses technology to make relevant that which has been important to the city since its inception.

In addition to its tangible accomplishments, the Historical Society has helped foster a community ethic that inspires preservation. A prime example of that is the renovation of the Boerner Mercantile Building in the heart of downtown by owners Dan and Marie-Anne Ewig, who had the 1969 facade removed and the original building restored to provide attractive spaces for two large retail stores and numerous offices.

Grafton will have to decide if it has the collective commitment to historic preservation and the energy to accomplish it, which is a subject of a community meeting this week. As Village Administrator Darrell Hofland noted, the creation of a historical society hinges on “the sheer passion for preserving Grafton’s history.”

Village residents should make that determination knowing that such organizations can make meaningful improvements in their communities in ways that unite and inspire their residents. For proof of that, they need only look north.

 

 
The Walmart lesson PDF Print E-mail

The mega-retailer’s decision to close outlets teaches consumers   a painful lesson about what can happen if they fail to support the local businesses that enhance their communities

Walmart’s announcement last month that it will close 154 stores in the United States shocked and angered residents of communities affected by the closings.

These Walmart shoppers, many of whom  live in small, rural communities, said the company betrayed them by opening stores in their towns that lured them away from independently owned shops with product selection and discount pricing only to announce now those stores will close. In the process, long-established mom-and-pop operations unable to compete with the retail monolith went out of business, leaving soon-to-be former Walmart shoppers faced with having to drive 20, 30, even 40 miles to buy a gallon of milk or a carton of eggs.

Shocking? Hardly. Community loyalty has never been a factor in the giant corporation’s business plan, so when it became clear its smaller Express store concept was a failure and on-line retailers like Amazon were cutting into its profits, Walmart did what you’d expect by shedding underperforming stores and changing directions.

Doug McMillon, Walmart’s president and chief executive, said the decision was not easy. It probably wasn’t that difficult either. The 154 stores in the United States, plus another 115 outside the country that are slated to be closed, account for less than 1% of Walmart’s global square footage and revenue, which was $485 billion last year.

Walmart detractors, however, are on the right track when they talk about betrayal, although they have it backward. It was consumers who betrayed local merchants by choosing to spend their money at Walmart instead of at their corner grocery stores.

Along with the stories of irate Walmart shoppers who now will have to drive miles for their groceries are those of shop owners who watched in disbelief as customers loyal to them for decades gave their business instead to the mega-retailer.

Therein lies the cautionary tale to emerge from the Walmart closings. Consumers who fail to support their local businesses do so at their own risk — the risk of losing merchants who, while not always able to match the quantity-driven discounts offered by big box retailers, typically provide quality goods and services at fair prices and contribute in no small way to the quality of life of the communities they do business in.

The Walmart closings won’t affect Ozaukee County, but residents of small communities here know what it’s like to lose stores that offered necessities like groceries and were just a pleasant stroll or short drive away.

In 2007, Belgium Village Market opened in a new building that was to be the anchor of a retail and business development. A year later, it closed for lack of business.

More than six years later, the village is still without a grocery store.

In December, Village Market, Fredonia’s only grocery store, closed. Its former owner, David Roggenbuck, who sold the business months earlier because he could no longer make a go of it, told Ozaukee Press, “It is a tough business, especially when people only stop in for one or two items before heading to places like Walmart or Target for their major grocery shopping.”

Village Trustee Lisa Dohrwart described it as a “don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone” moment for Fredonia, and astutely described the trickle-down affect of business closings on a community. Aside from the economic impact, the blight of empty buildings and a dearth of local shopping options, fewer local businesses mean fewer members for organizations like the Chamber of Commerce, fewer sponsors for community functions and causes and less self-sufficiency for villages and cities that teeter on the line that separates thriving municipalities from bedroom communities.

Port Washington is an example of the former for several reasons — a healthy downtown, a strong tourism economy, residential development and yes, a grocery store. It’s unthinkable that a city of nearly 12,000 people would not have a full-service food market, yet that was the case in Port for a short period of time until Sanfilippo’s Sentry Foods opened. It remains the only grocery in the city and needs the support of local customers if it’s going to continue providing an essential service in Port.

The lesson in the Walmart closings isn’t that a global corporation with annual profits in the hundreds of billions of dollars isn’t loyal to the communities it does business in, but that consumers who don’t support local businesses risk losing stores that provide needed services and goods and make their villages and cities better places to live.
