I guess I’m not the only EHRISMAN causing civil discourse (H/T-Helga)



Not sure if many people know, but my last name ‘Ehrisman’ is spelled many different ways, but my spelling is rare. In German, it means ‘Honored Man’ That being said, it is rare I come across others with the name, except for immediate family. I don’t know Stacy, probably relation, but found her story wonderful;

An attorney on maternal leave was denied her request to postpone an immigration hearing in Atlanta, and had to litigate with her baby strapped to her chest. Then, she was berated by the judge, who refused to delay the hearing, for bringing her child to court.

 As soon as Stacy Ehrisman-Mickle agreed to work with two brothers on an immigration case in September, she filed a request to delay the hearing, set for October 7, so that she could complete her six-week maternal leave. Ehrisman-Mickle believed the presiding judge would accept the request, since two other judges presiding over separate cases agreed to push back their hearings in response to letters from her doctor. But Immigration Judge J. Dan Pelletier Sr. turned down her request, claiming, “No good cause. Hearing date set prior to counsel accepting representation.”

Because Ehrisman-Mickle’s truck-driving husband was out of town for work, and she did not have relatives close-by, she was forced to bring her 4-week-old baby to the hearing. Following instructions from her child’s pediatrician, she strapped her daughter to her chest during the hearing, but the baby began to cry. Ehrisman-Mickle was then criticized by Pelletier, in front of everyone at the hearing, for bringing her baby to court. Pelletier told her that her behavior was inappropriate, and that Ehrisman-Mickle’s pediatrician would be displeased, since the baby was exposed to the court’s germs.

The judge eventually agreed to delay the hearing, and Ehrisman-Mickle immediately filed a complaint against him.


I guess it is in our blood to question those in authority.

I started reading this study today, and my mind was so overwhelmed, I decided to save it and soak it in, bit by bit. But amazing stuff;

I guess they have ‘Starbucks’ parking at HyVee now. Wonder if I can use the spot to pick up some beer to? Nothing like creating your own parking spot,

Mayor Huether more concerned about popularity and dog poop then he is about real issues affecting our community

Before the election, many important topics were brought to the mayor’s attention. A rising crime rate in Sioux Falls, low wages, affordable housing and public transportation, impoverished children.

So now that the voters have spoken, and 56% of them approved of giving Huether 4 more years, what have been the top two news stories over the past 2 days involving the mayor’s office?

He had to have his first Listening and Learning session of 2014 in a precinct that didn’t support him to try to win over their favor and he wants his code enforcement office to crack down and do a better job of educating people about letting their dogs poop on city hall’s lawn.

“The lush grass outside the mayor’s window at Ninth and Dakota has become a major oasis for downtown dogs.”

Huether is also making his way to one of our Sister Cities, Potsdam, Germany (he says he is paying for the trip himself) Two words for you Mike ‘Beer Spa’. Just make sure no one posts the picture of you in one on Facebook.

So while real problems still exist in Sioux Falls that need to be resolved, our mayor is busy worrying about stupid shit, literally.
