The bright side of the brew pub brouhaha PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ozaukee Press   
Wednesday, 14 January 2015 18:59

The prospect of the City of Port selling public land for a brew pub or similar commercial use has energized the citizenry in support of smarter lakefront planning

Something remarkable is going on in the great brew pub brouhaha.

    No, it’s not that the members of the Port Washington Common Council have reconsidered and are backing away from their proposal to sell public lakefront land as a site for a brew pub or similar commercial use.

    But what is happening might be the next best thing. The prospect of the public losing land at the north edge of the downtown marina, with its lake views and proximity to the water, has engaged the people of Port Washington with an intensity not seen for years in this community.

    With their responses to the city’s misguided brew-pub move, citizens are making it clear that they understand that the presence of a Great Lake reaching into the very heart of their city makes Port Washington exceptional. They know that any community can have a brew pub, but that very few communities have the natural gifts with which Port Washington is blessed. They are saying: Don’t squander those gifts.

    They are saying it with hundreds of signatures on petitions, with letters to the editor, in coffee-shop, grocery-store and street-corner conversations and in communications to city officials.

    They are saying it from diverse points of view. Some think the land, currently a parking lot, should be kept open as public space with lake views intact. Some think it should continue to be used as a parking lot with aesthetic improvements. Others want the space made into a park to enhance the public’s enjoyment of the marina area.

    Another group supports private development near the lakefront but views the notion of selling public waterfront land for something as mundane as a brew pub or a retail store as setting the bar for city progress at a ridiculously low level.

    These diverse elements are united in a shared perception that what the city government is trying to do with the lakefront land amounts to development by whim, not a plan.

    All of the ideas that have come out of the robust public reaction to the brew-pub proposal are likely to be aired at an important public meeting to be held by the Greater Port Washington Kiwanis Club at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 22, at the Niederkorn Library. Everyone who cares about the natural assets that make Port Washington exceptional should try to be there.

    The Kiwanis Club has offered to create a park on the parking lot site, and that idea will be further developed at the meeting, including exploring the availability of volunteers to work on a park project in the spirit of the amazingly successful Possibility Playground volunteer project in Upper Lake Park. But attendees will be encouraged to discuss other options for the land as well.

    Meanwhile, the city’s process of seeking offers from developers to buy the land is moving ahead with no sign from officials that they are hearing the rising chorus of concern from the public.

    That is unfortunate, because something remarkable is going on in Port Washington, and city officials should not only listen to it, they should be part of it. Ideas that could enable the city to make more of its lakefront treasures to benefit everyone are in the air. But these opportunities will be lost, likely forever, if the land is taken for a brew pub, restaurant or store. Just as the public’s lakefront land will be lost forever if it’s sold.

A fight in a Port Washington bar on Dec. 25. Women shoving each other, throwing punches. Men grappling. Some blood flowing. A report of a knife.

    As Christmas stories go, this one was pretty sordid. Still, it was instructive. There are things to be learned from the aftermath of the bar fight that left a former TV actor charged with stabbing a Port Washington man.

    One lesson is that, contrary to popular belief, celebrity is not fleeting. In some cases, it apparently just goes on and on as though it’s ageless. It has been 22 years since Dustin Diamond, the man facing felony and misdemeanor charges in the scuffle, played a character in a TV sitcom. Yet when word got out that he was in trouble with the law, media folk flocked to Port Washington.

    Predominant in this group were representatives of the news operations of TV stations, whose behavior offered another lesson, a reminder that in their line of work what passes for news is often barely distinguishable from entertainment.

    Which explains why people with video cameras and microphones staked out not only the tavern that was the scene of the crime and the jail and courts where Diamond was incarcerated and appeared before a judge, but also stores and gas stations where Port Washington residents were going about their business of buying things and putting fuel in their cars.

    One TV reporter’s idea of covering the story was to give a woman pumping gas in downtown Port an opportunity to appear on the nightly news by answering his question—does she think Dustin Diamond needs to carry a concealed weapon to be safe in Port Washington?

    That was about as silly as the antics of Screech, the character in the 1989-1993-era TV teen comedy “Saved by the Bell” who was played by the current defendant in the bar stabbing. No surprise there. Like the sitcom, the question was meant to produce entertainment.

    By fortunate happenstance, a story in the same issue of this newspaper that reported on the celebrity bar fight and its media attention also gave readers a look at celebrity of a more appealing nature.

    That was the story of Audra Daniloff, a Port High senior whose heartwarming surprise was seen by millions of people who clicked on a YouTube video posted by her father.

    Audra was first introduced to Ozaukee Press readers early last year as the member of the high school varsity dance team who struggled through a performance but was so exhausted afterward that she ended up in Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, diagnosed with a deadly disease that attacked tissues and organs.

    After treatment for months with chemotherapy and other therapies, Audra recovered to the point where she is back on the dance team. As a special Christmas present for the daughter he says would not be with him were it not for the doctors at Children’s Hospital and her fighting spirit, Audra’s father bought her tickets to a New York concert by her favorite band and airplane tickets to travel there with him. It was the way the gifts were presented that delighted 2.4 million YouTube viewers.

    Her father, Marc Danilof, asked his hometown police chief, Saukville’s Jeff Goetz, if a police officer could present the airline and concert tickets as part of a good-natured hoax. The chief agreed, and one day Audra was pulled over while driving in Saukville by a young cop named Brandin Depies and issued two tickets—not traffic tickets, but concert and airplane tickets. When the surprise was revealed, Audra and Officer Depies were all smiles, as, one supposes, were the people all over the world who saw the video.

    Besides offering a glimpse of one family’s happy moment, this little vignette says something about police and their relationship with their communities at a time when those relationships are at breaking points in some places.

     No one would say the challenges faced by Saukville’s police officers are anything like those faced by their brethren in New York City, but the big-city and small-town departments have one thing in common—they can’t function effectively without public support and public respect. Chief Goetz earned tons of both for his officers by granting a grateful father’s simple request.

    Two celebrity tales. One is a nice story.

Public transit use is surging across the country and in Ozaukee County, where taxi service  hours should be expanded to meet growing demand

You would expect people to be driving more, considering the falling price of gasoline, but what they’re really doing is riding more.

    More Americans used public transit services in the third quarter of 2014 than in any comparable time period since the American Public Transportation Association began recording ridership numbers in 1974.

    The association reported that 2.7 billion passenger trips were taken on transit systems in the third quarter of this year, 48 million more trips than in the same period last year.

    The numbers are significant because:

    This year’s increased public transit use comes on top of record-setting 2013 ridership numbers. There is a trend here, and the arrow is pointing up.

    The trend has developed in spite of strong political opposition to investing in public transit systems, all of which require government subsidies. Municipalities that have persisted in improving mass transportation in the face of opposition from interests that prefer to have government transportation money spent on highways are being rewarded with strong public support for convenient, traffic-hassle-free light rail, street car and bus systems as well as the economic growth that is fueled by efficient public transit.

    The increased transit use is seen as sign of a shift away from the old suburban model for development—which is the father of urban sprawl—in favor of living in more compact communities where driving is less necessary.

    Public transit ridership is surging in Ozaukee County too, but here it’s not driven by convenience or lifestyle changes. It’s driven by need.

    Business is booming for the Ozaukee County shared-ride taxi service, which is now averaging more than 400 riders a day. Some days, well over 500 use the service.

    Most shared-ride taxi customers, lacking vehicles, driver’s licenses or the ability to drive, don’t have a good alternative. They depend on the shared-ride sedans, vans and compact buses for everything from going to work to seeing a movie.

    The aging of the population makes annual increases in the county taxi system’s ridership almost automatic. For a variety of reasons, many senior citizens don’t drive. Ozaukee’s elderly population is growing by about 4% every year. In 20 years, it is expected that senior citizens will make up fully one-fourth of the Ozaukee County population.

    With the steadily growing need for public transportation, it makes sense for the county’s Public Works Committee to approve a proposal to extend taxi service hours from 9 to 10 p.m. daily.

    With 25 vehicles and a full staff of drivers provided by a private contractor in place, adding the extra hour of daily service can be easily done and at small cost to taxpayers, an estimated $7,500 a year.

    In a time when it is popular to disparage the competence and cost-effectiveness of government operations, the shared-ride taxi stands out as a model of efficient service funded by a combination of federal, state and county tax money plus a significant contribution from the fares paid by riders.

    The system could not function without government subsidy. Any taxpayers who are bothered by that might keep in mind that supporting public transportation is a more efficient use of tax dollars than spending on highways, which like public transit, are paid for by general tax revenue as well  as user fees.

    The Ozaukee County shared-ride taxi service is a better value than usual this week. The service’s fleet and drivers will be standing by to give folks going out on New Year’s Eve a safe ride to and from their place of celebration. All it will take is a phone call, and people needing a ride will be picked anywhere in the county from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. And the rides will be free, thanks to the business sponsors underwriting the service.

    So add this to the manifold benefits of a well-run Ozaukee County public transit system: a safer New Year’s Eve on the roads.
