First Weber-Make a Smooth move

home : opinions : letters to the editor June 24, 2016

Rhinelander Roots organizers thank participants
To the editor:

A big thank you to all who helped make the first Rhinelander Roots Celebration on May 12 at Rhinelander City Hall a success.

We had 20 exhibitors who brought in a wide range of photographs, scrapbooks, antiques and memorabilia, and a good crowd the entire day of the event.

Elected officials are endangering our lakes, rivers, streams
To the editor:

Having spent 30 years as a water plant operator and distribution specialist with Menasha Utilities, I have been working with what I call "blue gold" most of my life. When I bought property and retired in Townsend, I became very active in the Flowage Association. I currently serve as a board member of the Oconto County Lakes and Waterways Association.

Reader bemoans condition of local roads
To the editor:

The roads in Rhinelander are getting worse by the day. I can only imagine people are going to start avoiding town all together as they pass from the north or south. Obviously, this is not good for business.

Re-elect Sen. Johnson
To the editor:

The election of U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson has been a wonderful gift to the people of Wisconsin. Johnson has been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business. The NFIB said they endorsed Johnson because he protects the rights of small business in Wisconsin.

Tiffany's policies have hurt the Northwoods
To the editor:

Senator Tiffany makes himself look pretty good in his recent article. I should be used to the GOP spinning the things they do to make them sound good. I'm not. It is just that much more fertilizer.

Tiffany sold us all out as one of his very first acts as senator. After receiving $90,000 from Gogebic Taconite and its officers, he took legislation written by their lawyers and submitted it as his own.

Let us shine
To the editor:

Downtown Rhinelander's landscape will be changing fast in the coming months. I see it as a wonderful opportunity for growth for the downtown merchants if they gear up for it.

I would hope that there would be a renewed effort to attract more tourists. In my opinion we have been falling far short of our potential over the years, really. We should be doing much better, but instead we struggle.
