  1. The Kenosha County Eye once again shows its value to our community. Thank you for shaming those in charge to get them to fix something very simple, yet important.

    I get the sense that the water department burglary was an inside job.

  2. I like that this article covered multiple headlines. Mr. Mathewson, a daily local news breakdown just like this would come in handy. Keep it in mind; I would love to wake up each morning and know what is happening around me.

  3. Heidt needs serious help. I cannot imagine the grief and embarrassment she has cast down on her children, husband, and other family members.
    Thanks Kevin for reporting events the MSM doesn’t think are worthy of the public’s awareness.

  4. Mr. Mathewson – THANK YOU. You are providing an invaluable service to the citizens of Kenosha. I’ve only recently discovered your website and investigative reporting and I am so appreciative that you are covering local government. Please keep up the great work.
