Why do you live up here in the Northwoods?

Fixing local government: Is it impossible?
To the Editor:

"It always seems impossible until it's done." - Nelson Mandela

In the midst of ongoing chaos at City Hall, I'd like to acknowledge the tremendous outpouring of support for my role in trying to move our city forward, while also taking on the much more difficult (and for now seemingly impossible) job of trying to keep our government within the law.

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).

'Head for the door'
To the Editor:

Do you know anyone who is working, or has worked, at a job they didn't like because their medical benefits were tied to their job?

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

LWVNOW director calls for local non-partisan candidates
To the Editor:

Ever thought of serving on a school board or in local government - town or city or at the county level? The spring election for these levels of public office will take place April 3, 2018 with a spring primary, if needed, on Feb. 20, 2018.

Decoding 'double-speak'
To the Editor: "Double-speak" is using words as if they mean the opposite of their true meaning. Your Sept. 28 issue was so filled with it that I feel compelled to comment.
Thursday, October 12, 2017

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.
Tuesday, October 10, 2017

It could be you
To the Editor: Your son and daughter went to Hodag Country Festival to listen to some great music and have fun. When the police appeared at your door, you figured they'd been picked up for DUI or maybe had been in an accident.

Reader shares thoughts on athletes and the national anthem
To the Editor:

I can still remember lacing up my cleats and running out on the field. I can still hear the sound the dirt made when I would make a sharp right turn and the way the cold spring air felt on my face as I was dribbling up the sidelines.

Graham-Cassidy targets Americans with pre-existing conditions
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. By the time you read this article, you will know whether they succeeded in putting health care out of the reach of millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions.

When is a debate not a debate?
To the Editor:

When is a debate not a debate? This apparent paradox is particularly relevant to discussions of climate change. E.P.A. Administrator Scott Pruitt, for instance, is planning a "debate" about the science of global warming.

Saturday, September 23, 2017

Reader shares thoughts on jury duty
To the Editor:

I'd like to respond to the "Jurors serve justice and justice serves us all" letter to the editor.
