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.

School Board vote on that day will have permanent consequences.
Here I was all set to blog something about your city, school district, state, and nation rationalizing a tax increase by saying,"It's only a such-in-such% increase in your tax bill?" and that it was time for a Boston Tea Party.
Unintended consequences 4k/can't close schools, elderly protection laws/can't seatbelt patient--falls, cant prune and clear forests/wild fires out of control, public education/tax price prohibits private education
