Which side are they on? Oneida County supervisors must answer to voters
If there was ever any doubt - and, after years of reporting, there should not have been - it can be said the leadership of Oneida County is totally contemptuous of public accountability, so secretive in the way it fashions so-called "public policy" and spends taxpayer dollars that it can truly be called a government of the special interests, by the special interests, and for the special interests.

Reader supports governor's initiative on masks
To the Editor:

Tony Evers, like governors across the country, has extraordinary powers to act in times of a health emergency. These powers are enumerated in Chapter 323. These powers are unilateral (meaning he can act without the legislature) but expire at the end of 60 days. The legislative history of Chapter 323 suggests that the legislature would get its act together during those 60 days and further protect Wisconsin citizens. Unfortunately, our current legislature has no interest in protecting Wisconsin citizens and has done nothing, even though the novel coronavirus has killed over 1,000 Wisconsin citizens. Governor Evers has again used the powers of Chapter 323 to issue a second order, this time requiring everyone wear face masks.

DeGolier, Bennet win Rod Gaskill Memorial Bass Tournament
Rod Gaskill was an avid bass angler who moved to Rhinelander from Las Vegas in the 1990s. He was one of the founding members of the Hodag Bassmasters in Rhinelander. The club eventually took over the Boom Lake Open, and operated it for many years, with Gaskill often holding the position of tournament director.

In 2015, Gaskill was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He passed away in 2018.

With the Hodag Bassmasters Boom Lake Open no longer running, the decision was made to replace that tournament with the Rod Gaskill Memorial Bass Tournament. Aug. 15, 2020 marked the second annual tournament, with 34 teams registered for the event. Two teams had boat problems and had to back out, to their dismay. (subscriber access)

River Series tournament shows a positive change on Minocqua Chain
To say this year has been a strange one for fishing would be an understatement. Water temperatures shot up quickly early on, the fish - especially the smallmouth - seemed to stay in their post-spawn funk for far longer than normal, and in general, everything just seemed a bit upside down.
