'We need someone to work for us'
To the Editor:

At a time when we are all trying to keep from infecting others with the coronavirus, we certainly don't want to be sending the cause of a lot of our local problems to infect our national government.

Democrats don't deserve House seat
To the Editor:

Referring to the special election for the Seventh Congressional District on May 12, the Democratic party doesn't deserve to fill another house seat with one of their party members.

Zunker will fight for the north
To the Editor:

I hope you'll consider voting for Tricia Zunker and against "Toxic Tom" Tiffany in the May 12 election to replace retired Congressman Sean Duffy in the 7th Congressional District.

Friday, May 8, 2020

Basta! Enough is enough
To the Editor:

Received Tiffany's recent self-promotional mailing of AB 1038 hi-lighting eight pages of COVID-19 insertions consisting of double spaced word and phrase changes to an 87 page pending bill first brought to the floor in 2019.

Before voting for the 7th Congressional candidate on May 12, 2020 conservative voters should ask the following questions about Tom Tiffany and whether he is a true conservative.

Friday, May 8, 2020

A response to Tiffany's recent mass mailing
To the Editor:

I'm writing in response to the recent mass mailing Tom Tiffany sent to the voters of our district, expressing his "concern" for our well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reader: Tricia Zunker will fight for our local interests
To the Editor:

For the May 12 special election for the U.S. 7th Congressional District, will we choose Tom Tiffany, who has demonstrated that he does not care about our local interests and is beholden to the large corporate interests who fund his campaign?

Metallic sulfide mining in Oneida County: Position statement from OCLRA
To the Editor:

The mission of the Oneida County Lakes and Rivers Association is to protect and preserve the quality and riparian habitat of our county's inland waters.

Friday, April 24, 2020

Reader: County board should not be issuing permits to mining companies
To the Editor:

I strongly oppose issuing a permit to Badger Minerals in the Town of Schoepke. I live on Pelican Lake in Oneida County, far too close to the exploration site.

Tri-County executive director responds to April 14 article
To the editor:

In reference to the front-page article of the Tuesday, April 14 issue of The Northwoods River News:

"Concerns about mental health, domestic violence prompt outreach"

As the Executive Director of Tri-County Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, an agency that has served the Northwoods for over 40 years in Oneida, Vilas, and Forest Counties, I am disappointed that we were not contacted to provide information for this article. We are one of the oldest non-profit agencies in the Northwoods, serving over 500 victims every year. We are also a proud United Way recipient.

'None of us have immunity'
To the Editor:

Watching what is happening in New York, Detroit, Miami and Chicago, it's difficult to imagine anything like that happening here. But I am imploring everyone to take this pandemic seriously. It will come to rural areas and ours is particularly vulnerable. This is the time of year that many to our south, where the virus has taken hold, will venture north to open their vacation homes, stock their pantries and perhaps hunker down to ride out the worst of it. None of us have immunity.

'Paying the price'
To the Editor:

Someone asks "Can a blind man be afraid of the dark?" Well, of course. As a kid I was. It's not that dark scares us. It's what might be hiding under the bed or closet. A monster. A boogeyman. It's the unknown. The strongest and oldest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. What we don't know, can't see, can hurt us. Like a virus! The coronavirus pandemic scares us because we don't know where it is, who has it and whether it will jump out at us. Our fear of the coronavirus is depriving us of the chance to live a normal life. It prevents students the opportunity to go to school, sports fans the joy of cheering for their favorite teams and all of us the freedom to mingle, clasp hands or hug one another to express our friendship and affection. Human beings are social animals, and even with text messaging, Facebook and Instagram, we still need and want physical contact with one another.

Fair elections/fair maps
To the Editor:

If you know what it is like to not be heard, to be left out or to have something you are passionate about disregarded, then perhaps you can understand what it feels like to not have your vote matter.

Partisan?
To the Editor:

While sheltering-in-place, I read Gregg Walker's and Richard Moore's op-ed titled, "Gov. Evers Putting the Partisan Back into Nonpartisan."

Friday, April 3, 2020

Reader responds to March 26 editorial
To the Editor:

The editorial of 26 March 2020, "Right now, a time for shared sacrifice," deserves comment.
