1 - 14-year-old Boy Missing from Neighborhood

Channel 3000 carried a news article this morning about a 14-year-old boy missing from his home on Lilac Lane since Monday afternoon.  He is Aidan C. Willkomm.  He needs to take medication to prevent possible seizures.

He was last seen walking across the pedestrian bridge that spans the Beltline and connects the two parts of Whenona Drive.

Aidan is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds.  He has brown hair and hazel eyes.  He was wearing dark-colored jeans, winter boots, a baseball cap, and a black winter coat with zigzag lines on it.  For a picture of him, go to <>

If you have seen this boy, call 911.

Thanks to Fitchburg Alder Dorothy Krause for
letting us know about this news.

3 - Neighbor Pictured in New York Times

I’m a regular subscriber to the New York Times.  Imagine my surprise when I glanced at a color picture on page A9 of the National section on January 18 and saw neighbor Dorothy Krause right in the middle of the photo!

She was part of the crowd gathered in front of the Governmental Accountability Board’s location near the Square to witness delivery of recall petitions for the Governor, Lt. Governor, and 4 Republican Senators.

See the picture and article at < <;src=tp&amp;smid=fb-share> < >    Dorothy is one of the few without a hat.  She’s wearing a  light brown coat.

Dorothy is treasurer of the DMNA and one of the two alders representing the Fitchburg part of the neighborhood.  The other alder is Carol Poole.

The recall organizers reported that they delivered the following number of signatures for recalling various politicians:
    Over 1,000,000 to recall Gov. Scott Walker
     845,000 to recall Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch
      21,000+ to recall Sen. Terry Moulton of Chippewa Falls (23rd Senate District)
      21,000+ to recall Sen Pam Galloway of Wausau (29th Senate District)
      24,000 to recall Sen. Van Wanggaard of Racine (21st Senate District)
      20,600 to recall Sen. Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau (13th Senate District)

Dear Community Partner:
My name is Kassandra McLaughlin, and I represent the Urban League of Greater Madison, a non-profit organization that helps others gain employment.   I am contacting you because I am trying to get the word out about two of our successful programs, the Foundations Program and Healthcare Administration Training Program.

The Foundation Program provides training for work readiness to prepare our members for employment.
Members will create a professional resume, cover letter, obtain professional email address, and learn basic Microsoft computer skills.  It is necessary to attend a short orientation on Mondays at noon here at the Urban League in order to be eligible.   Please see the attached Urban League flyer for more information.

The Healthcare Administration Training Program will provide students a chance to earn 11 credits from Madison College free of charge.  It prepares people for jobs in Healthcare Administration that includes Medical Reception, Medical Records Clerk, Insurance Verifier and more.  Please see the attached Health Administration Training Program flyer for more information.  The class starts April 6th, and the last Monday Orientation they can attend is February 6th.

Any assistance you could give in spreading the news about these programs or distributing/posting the flyers would be appreciated.  As a graduate of the Healthcare Administration, it has changed my life and I am positive it will change others’ lives too.  

Please feel free to contact Travis Graham at 608-729-1234 or email him at for any other questions or concerns.
