Reader sounds off on wolf 'fear-mongering'
To the Editor: It looks like the anti-wolf crowd was out in force at the latest meeting of our Natural Resources Board, spouting the same tired misinformation and fear-mongering they usually do about the effect wolves have on our deer population (NRB hears wolf woes from the Northwoods, Oct. 7).

Decoding 'double-speak'

Get money out of politics
To the Editor: A year and one month before an election the attack ads begin. Supposedly, Tammy Baldwin is against tax reform. The ad almost appears sane when one pays no attention or does not think critically when watching it.

To the Editor:

As I write this article, Republicans are one vote away from passage of Graham-Cassidy, legislation which would rescind the Affordable Care Act.
