Announcements, Adjournment Honors, and Remarks Under Special Privilege
Senator Miller, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of the retiring state senators. Leah Vukmir, Senate District 5, was elected to the legislature in 2002. Terry Mouton, Senate District 23, was elected to the legislature in 2004. Kathleen Vinehout, Senate District 31, was elected to the legislature in 2006. Caleb Frostman, Senate District 1, was elected to the legislature in 2018.
Senator Vukmir, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of her staff, especially this session: Jessica, Mattias, Ben and Jason.
Senator Vukmir, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of her kids, because if it wasn’t for them, she wouldn’t be here today.
Senator Vukmir, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of son, who was recently promoted to Captain in the United States Army. Today, he has the incredible honor of serving alongside the casket of President Bush. Senator Vukmir would also like to adjourn in his honor and all the other young men and women who serve this great country and to President Bush.
Senator Johnson, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of Sandra Parks, a 13-year-old Milwaukee child, who died on November 19, 2018, a tragic victim of the gun violence epidemic.
Senator Larson, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of his daughter, Stella Louisa Larson, who celebrates her 4th birthday on December 7, 2018. She is an amazing person who brings joy and happiness to our family.
Senator Larson, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of Jennie Ramus, a former high school classmate, who was tragically killed 20 years ago on December 23rd by a repeat drunk driver. Jennie, a high school senior, was coming home from a Christmas gathering when she was hit by a repeat drunk driver who was driving after drinking at a party. He was dangerously over the legal blood-alcohol limit. Her death sticks with him, especially when we bring forth legislation to reduce drunk driving and repeat drunk drivers. In the last 20 years since her tragic death, and despite the injury and death of thousands of our friends and neighbors, we have failed to pass Wisconsin drunk driving laws that are effective. Her death, as well as the 182 other lives lost in the last reportable year to drunk driving, were needless. Although this session is ending with no real action on this issue, we must do better to honor those needlessly taken from us. It is his hope that everyone drives safe this holiday season. Watch and be cautious because with our laws, drunk drivers are out there on our roads. Senator Larson adjourns in honor and memory of Jennie Ramus as well in honor of all who we have tragically lost to drunk driving.

Senator Olsen, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of Rachel Scott and her parents. Rachel was the first person killed in the Columbine shooting 20 years ago. Last Monday, the Senator and his wife had the opportunity to meet with the Scotts and learn about their daughter who was a remarkable young lady. She lived 17 years and what the Scotts have done is started something called Rachel’s Challenge that has made an impact on millions of people across the US and the world. They go into schools and into communities with a message of love and hope and forgiveness, and every week the Scotts get emails and messages from people who have gone through their program that the program has saved their lives because they were going to commit suicide. They also have stopped mass shootings because they get emails from people saying “I wasn’t just thinking about it. I had the stuff ready to shoot and kill my fellow students.” They have taken a tragedy in their life and made it something positive, and it has saved many, many children and parents and people from across the country and the world.

Senator Schachtner, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of Officer Lee Sylvester Murphy. In June 1953, Officer Murphy pulled over a suspect who had stolen a car in Hawthorne and robbed a tavern in Amery. During the traffic stop Officer Murphy sustained a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Despite being wounded, Officer Murphy chased the suspect into Hudson. The suspect shot and killed Patrolman Clarence Erickson, of the Hudson Police Department in an effort to evade officers. Officer Murphy joined a gun battle between officers and the suspect. After this course of events, Officer Murphy had a shoulder operation and suffered a stroke shortly after surgery. He had been ill as a result of the gunshot wound and stroke for two years and succumbed to his injuries on September 22, 1955. After years of applying to have Officer Murphy’s name listed on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, Officer Murphy’s application was accepted and his name will be added on the Memorial in the spring of 2019. Senator Schachtner is honored to have been part of the process that finally led to the successful acceptance of this long awaited and deserved honor for Officer Lee Murphy.
