Longtime SE Regional DNR Chief Out

A Friday late afternoon special about the SE Wisconsin regional director - - this email is circulating in the DNR:

From: Steffes, Laurel J - DNR On Behalf Of Stepp, Cathy L - DNR 

Sent: Friday, January 21, 2011 03:53 PM 
Subject: Senior Management Update

In the last two weeks we have met with the employees of the agency gathering input and ideas on how to succeed and grow jobs while assuring environmental quality.

Southeast Wisconsin is the most active business center of our state and holds great potential for creating much needed jobs.
Starting today Gloria McCutcheon’s role will change in the Southeast. 

Gloria has served the DNR with great pride. She is an environmentalist and leader who is committed to the mission and goals of the Department.  We sincerely thank her for her service. 

We are discussing other equally important opportunities in the DNR where we can use her knowledge and experience to achieve agency goals. She is taking sabbatical leave while she considers options. 
We will work to find a replacement that is equally committed to DNR and Southeast Wisconsin.  We will immediately start work to fill this key position.
While we recruit a new Regional Director, Air and Waste Leader John Hammen will be acting.
Cathy Stepp
Secretary Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (

So, what is the real story here?

Well, first it was the train, then mysterious fish kills, the the Wisconsin Idea lies smashed like a pumpkin on November 1. Suddenly enormous flocks of birds are dropping dead from the sky and freezing onto branches at various spots around the world, the wind turbines take a crap, dolphins are beaching, the biomass goes up in a puff of gas, and we're forced to watch the long slow death of Obama's liberal agenda with frozen smiles because other wise a monkey in a Tricorn hat misquoting Thomas Paine will be in the white house in 2012..... there's the weird Olbermann thing, this DNR chick is on "sabbatical", La Cosa Nostra is behind bars and Jersey Shore consistently breaks viewing records.
The Seven Horsemen are obviously on their way.

It is about time the worst pollution within the whole DNR organization is fired!!! If polluted Jim Morrisey is added to the McCutcheon flush, we will see them both in the next MMSD sewage dump into Lake Michigan. My congratulations to the DNR on this firing of Gloria McCutcheon. This should have done years ago. I am beginning to have faith in the DNR again. I hope they look into a Jim Morrissey firing. He is a clone of Gloria. Happy days for south eastern Wisconsin.

@Anonymous #2 - I have enough cojones to post under my real name, however obviously you are too embarrassed to sign your name to the offensive bilge, tripe, and slaughter house offal that you find appropriate to post here.

Happy days for Southeast Wisconsin will come again when Scott Walker has to work in the private sector for the first time in his life and offensive, fact free commentary such as yours is relegated to the trash can. Obviously, Mr. Rowen, the blog owner approved your swill for posting just so that the public can see the "thought process" going through the minds of "conservatives".

Rhetoric such as yours enables domestic terrorism. It's time for you to volunteer for the army and fight in Afghanistan, perhaps then you can actually apply your eliminationist rhetoric in a legal capacity. Quit hiding behind your keyboard.
