Announcements, adjournment honors, and remarks under special privilege
Senator Miller, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of three members of the United States Olympic team from the 16th Senate District: Nina Roth, Becca Hamilton and Matt Hamilton. All three are members of the United States Curling Team competing at the 2018 Olympic Winter games in South Korea.
Senator Miller, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in memory of Gregory A. Ennis, family member of our own Sarah Burhop, who passed away on February 13, 2018, at the age of 30, in Colorado Springs, CO. Greg was a loving son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend to many. To those who knew him, Greg had the most beautiful smile and heart, love of his family and his family of friends. Greg left this world way too young, and he has left a lasting imprint on his family’s hearts.
Senator Miller, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor Paul Kusuda. Paul was a human being with a passion for justice tempered by immense personal grace. Paul’s parents, Masao and Chitko, immigrated to the US from Japan in the early 1900a. As a young man, Paul was offered a federal internship in 1941, but on February 19, 1942, Presidential Executive Order 9066 directed internment of Americans of Japanese ancestry. Paul was interred with the rest of his family at the Manzanar Relocation Center located at the north end of Death Valley. Upon release from Manzanar, Paul obtained a Masters of Social Work from the University of Chicago. Paul then worked in the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, retiring in 1987 as the Deputy Director for Juvenile Services. Paul educated students, congregations, and civic groups about his experience at Manzanar. He was not better about his experience. He used his experience to alert his audience to how fear can be manipulated to deprive people of their human rights, even in America. Paul Kusuda conveyed these lessons with compassion and understanding. Coincidentally, yesterday was the 786th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, so it is fitting and appropriate that today we honor Paul Kusuda for his service to the people of Wisconsin.
Senator Erpenbach, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of the lives lost through senseless violence in Florida. Alyssa Alhadeff, 14. Alyssa was a student at Stoneman Douglas and a soccer player for Parkland Travel Soccer. Scott Beigel, 35. A geography teacher, Scott was killed as he tried to usher students back into his classroom when the shooting broke out. Martin Duque Anguiano, 14. Martin’s brother said, “He was sweet and caring and loved by all his family. Most of all he was my baby brother.” Nicholas Dworet, 17. Nicolas was recruited for the university swim team and would have been an incoming freshman this fall at University of Indianapolis. Aaron Feis, 37. As assistant football coach, Aaron threw himself in front of students and gave his life protecting the children of others. Jaime Guttenberg, 14. Jaime’s father’s Facebook post announcing his daughter’s death included, "Hugs to all and hold your children tight." Chris Hixon, 49. A Naval reservist, Chris Hixon deployed to Iraq in 2007 and was the athletic director for the school. His wife said of Chris, "He loved being an American and serving his country and he instilled that in our kids." Luke Hoyer, 15. Luke’s grandparents learned of his death from watching television accounts of the shooting. His cousin said of him, “He was always happy, always smiling. His smile was contagious, and so was his laugh.” Cara Loughran, 14. Cara danced at the Drake School of Irish Dance in South Florida. Gina Montalto, 14. Gina was a member of the winter guard on the school's marching band. Joaquin Oliver, 17. Joaquin was born in Venezuela, moved to the United States when he was 3 and became a naturalized citizen in January 2017, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Alaina Petty, 14. Alaina's family said she was vibrant and determined. She had volunteered after Hurricane Irma hit Florida in September. Meadow Pollack, 18. Meadow had been accepted at Lynn University in Boca Raton. Helena Ramsay, 17. Helena’s cousin posted, “You didn't deserve this. We love you so much and will miss you greatly." Alex Schachter, 14. Alex participated in the school marching band and orchestra, playing baritone and trombone. Carmen Schentrup, 16. Carmen was a National Merit Scholar semifinalist. Peter Wang, 15. Peter was a member of the junior ROTC program. Friends said Peter was shot while holding a door open to let fellow classmates get to safety.
Senator Darling, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of “Team Kraken Pinion,” the robotic club from Homestead High School. The team not only won the Wisconsin State Technical Challenge Competition held at UW-Milwaukee, but they also set a scoring record too. They now head to the North Super Regional in Cedar Rapids, Iowa starting on March 15th. Good luck!
Senator Wanggaard, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of Rehana R. Mansuri, who has worked diligently through the process of United States citizenship and was officially sworn in as a U.S. Citizen on February 15th. Congratulations Rehana!
Senator Tiffany, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of Nita Englund from Florence, WI. Nita is a 25 year old who was making her Olympic debut this month. She’s one of three American women participating in Olympic ski jumping. When asked what it’s like to ski jump, she says “ski jumping is like golf, except we’re the golf ball.” While Nita didn’t make the podium, we’re still proud of her accomplishments. Congrats to Nita on her first Olympic games.
