Lambeau Vote

It looks like 90 out of 99 will vote yes to the Lambeau field renovation and expansion bill in the State Assembly and then it will go to the governor for his signature then it will go to the Brown Co. people for a vote by them.

I don't know how the rest of you fell but this Packer fan says it's about time it goes back to Brown Co. for a vote . And I hope the people in Brown co. approve this bill, because we've always said that the Packers have the best fans so lets prove it by passing this by a very LARGE margin.     Packer Dean

Wisconsin Senate Passes Lambeau Bill

Today the Wisconsin State Senate passed Assembly Bill 892 by a vote of 28 - 5. The State Assembly willnow have to appove the same version of the bill before it can go to Gov. Thompson. Previously the Assembly passed its version of the bill with a stromg bi- partion vote of 73- 22.

I f Gov. Thompson signs the bill , a referendum will be held in Brown County in September where voters will decide whether or not to impose a half - penny sales tax in Brown County to help renovate Lambeau Field.

This Packer Fan has to wonder what Senate Majority Leader Chuck Chvala was and is trying to do. Who does he think he is I know that he ran for Gov. at one time and lost. Does he think that since he lost there that he can over use his power here. This Packer Fan thinks he should be replaced next election.

Camp Sherman Hits the  Practice Field

  The Mike Sherman era officially opened with two on- field workouts, conducted with over 60 players inside theDon Hutson Center. In reality, it had begun the previous afternoon with a tone setting team meeting at which the Packers' new head coach had laid out his rules.     After watching the pair of practices Sherman was excited about his new role, though he insisted that his team had much work to do.    "I thought it was a little sloppy ", he said . "I think we can do a lot better. We need to throw and catch the ball better in these mini- camps I didn't think we did that real well. But I think that's understandable considering the nature of our defense and also that our timing isn't what it needs to be at the present time.     Eight - and - Eight is good enough for a lot of people. But it's not good enough for the Green Bay Packers.

9 March 2000

Bevell Named Offensive Assistant
