Media Coverage on the Training and the Ban

Today's Appleton Post Crescent covers last night's event, provides an overview of the ban, and describes some efforts on our opponents' side.

The WBAY television news crew was also there, along with Green Bay's WFRV, and WLUK.

On the radio side of things, we were featured by WTAQ News of Green Bay; Jeffrey Jirschele's show on WHBY in Appleton interviewed campaign director Mike Tate; and WOSH student radio was on hand to cover the training.

Not done reading? For a preview of tonight's training at the First Presbyterian Church, you can look to this article in today's Wausau Daily Herald. WSAU Radio in Wausau will also have at least one preview story.

There's also a good deal of media unrelated to last night's Fox Valley event. For some great letters to the editor, check out this Sunday's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Oshkosh Northwestern reports on a group of students honoring Representative Gregg Underheim for his vote against the civil unions and marriage ban. The Marquette Tribune features campaigns for and against the ban and reports that even ban sponsor Mark Gundrum says the ban will--that's right--ban civil unions.

And finally, the Marshfield News-Herald reports on syndicated columnist Deb Price's recent visit to the First Presbyterian Church there. The article closes on this note:

The Rev. Scott Marrese-Wheeler of First Presbyterian Church addressed the audience Saturday night, saying the vote is not just for gays and lesbians to fight.

"The heterosexual community can come out as well in support of this," he said. "We hear these comments and we're afraid in some way. It's time we gain our voice and together show our voice."

Mr. Freker, I believe it was you who appeared on WISC-TV Sunday morning on the "For The Record" debate program. Thank you for being so eloquent. I think thoughtful debate like that goes a long way in letting people see what both sides are about; I felt that you and Mr. Anderson's comments on the no vote had so much strength and reasoning to them, while Ms. Appling and the minister from Monona Oaks seemed to be basing their comments on "I said so" logic. Thanks again!
