Reader takes issue with criticism of district attorney
To the Editor:

I take serious issue with the point of your publication's July 22 news article ("Woman alleging sexual assault obtains 10-year order of protection") and its related "Our View" editorial ("The justice system is asking the wrong question in sexual assault cases"): that Oneida County District Attorney Michael Schiek ("District attorney declined to prosecute alleged attacker") is to be criticized for deciding not to bring charges in the case of an alleged criminal sexual assault in a trailer at last year's (2021) Hodag Festival, where the issue seems to have been the question of consent.

Warm weather may bring about blue green algae blooms
As water temperatures warm with July's warmer air temperatures, many lakes in the Northwoods can become a breeding ground for blue green algae blooms, or Cyanobacteria blooms. Knowing what to look for can go a long way toward keeping people and pets safe from its toxic effects. No matter if blooms are present or not, it does not necessarily mean the water is completely safe. (subscriber access)

The Lake Where You Live: Fast forward
A little over three months ago we were celebrating daylight saving time and the emergence from the tunnel of winter's long nights. A bit more than a month later we were installing our piers and looking out on what seemed an infinity of life on a lake freed from the grip of ice. Just a couple of weeks ago we marked the longest daylight of the year, the June 21 summer solstice. On that day each year I like to be out in a boat, fishing until it's almost too dark to see. The sun sets at 8:44, and there is fishable light until nearly ten o'clock. The irony is that just after the first official day of summer we start the long slide of shortening days toward autumn, and then winter.
