S8 Senator Miller, with unanimous consent, asked that when the Senate adjourn, it do so in honor of his new granddaughter, Geneva Hitomi Miller, daughter of Emi Hibino Miller and Sterling Miller.
Senator Schultz, with unanimous consent, asked that when the Senate adjourn, it do so in memory of Stanley Postawa, of Sauk Prairie, who passed away on December 18, 2010. Postawa served our nation through his military service in the United States Army. His life was a testament to selfless allegiance and sacrifice, and he is survived by the gratitude of those he benefited. Stan Postawa was a long-time, proud member of the Prairie Du Sac Fire Department. The community could count on Postawa's bravery in the line of duty on behalf of his colleagues and neighbors. Stanley Postawa bestows on us a debt of gratitude. It is a privilege to honor Stanley Postawa's lifetime of dedication to his beloved community of Sauk Prairie and the State of Wisconsin.
Senator Schultz, with unanimous consent, asked that when the Senate adjourn, it do so in memory of Larry Drea, of Loreto Ridge, who passed away on December 15, 2010. Larry served us all in our nation's military where he was decorated for his bravery. Larry Drea was a lifelong member of the Sauk County Tavern League. He owned and operated Drea's bar, the longest running licensed bar in the state. His devotion to his work made his tavern the place to go for long lasting friendships. One of Larry's great gifts was his knowledge of local history and his willingness to share it with others. He was a wonderful historian, exciting any listener with his deep rooted understanding of our rural neighborhood known as Loreto Ridge. For example, Larry shared with Senator Schultz stories of a grandfather the Senator never knew and, when he heard a tidbit of local history somewhere, Senator Schultz knew he could go to Larry for the rest of the story - in technicolor. Senator Schultz is fortunate to be among those who knew and worked with Larry Drea and it is a privilege to honor his many gifts to Loreto Ridge, Sauk County, and Wisconsin.
Senator Wanggaard, with unanimous consent, asked that when the Senate adjourn, it do so in honor of his Lord Jesus who daily keeps him faithful; the memory of his parents Dr. Herluf and Hattie Wanggaard who formed his character, his wife's parents, John Mizer and Pauline Mizer-Hermes; his wife Mary Jo; his children Kathleen Jensen and her husband John, Joshua Wanggaard and his wife Amy; several brothers and sisters who are here today, Gail Wanggaard, Mark and Nancy Wanggaard, Kevin and Sandra Wanggaard, Chris Wanggaard, John & Barb Mizer, and his father-in-law Donald Hermes. The Senator would also like to recognize extended family and friends that he has come to appreciate and respect, who have added value to his life: Akil & Rehana Ajmeri, Tom and Karalin Tousis, Doug and Sue Koykkari, John Manders, John Leiber, Charles & Jennifer Johnson, Jeff Gelhoff, Sam Wahlen, Racine County Executive William McReynolds, Racine County Corporation Counsel Jonathan Lehman, Raymond Town Supervisor Dave Lecus, Racine Chief of Police Kurt Wahlen & wife Janet, and Racine County Department Heads Jonathan Delagrave and David Prott. Thank you all for sharing this moment in our State's history and for your continued prayers of support.
