Reader shares 'political education'
To the Editor:

Prior to this Trump presidency I was politically ignorant. Law enforcement was rigid on a position of neutrality. So on Election Day a portion of my vote was based on a lucky chance. Since I have retired, Trump has greatly contributed to my political education.

'Not a shred of evidence'

Recently, in a lengthy opinion piece, Gregg Walker and Richard Moore assured us that there is "not a shred of evidence" to support the idea that we are in a climate crisis. It's all just a "hoax." (subscriber access)

Reader shares thoughts on Oneida County AIS coordinator position
Our family has owned lakefront property in Oneida County for nearly 65 years. It has been a summer home, a permanent residence, and now once again is a summer home. I am one of the 75 percent of non-resident lake property owners.

Reader offers thoughts on tactical firearms
To the Editor:

I have been in the military, on rifle teams, carried enforcement credentials, a lifetime hunter and owner of guns, and as a civilian could get along well with single shot firearms (admittedly, I do own some repeaters). (subscriber access)

Reader offers reaction to conclusion of city investigations
To the editor:

Did I read correctly in the Saturday, July 27 River News that the complaints by city employees, which included: failure to be at work; failure to communicate; canceling/being tardy for/or scheduling meetings off regular hours; being instructed to not communicate with elected officials; were found to be just "accusations"?

Why we might lack a workforce
To the Editor:

Kudos to the contributors

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).
