Why do you live up here in the Northwoods?

To the Editor:

Years ago, when I moved up here to retire, my brother said to me, "Janie, people do not move up north to retire, they move down south." So he came up here to visit and as we were driving down Lower Kaubashine Road, he said "stop the car, stop the car."

So I stopped and he said "did you see it, did you see it? What? He said, "a deer, there was a deer." I smiled and said, "Bill, they feed in my front lawn."

But that was magic to him and he looked around and saw the raw beauty of living up here. And it was so quiet, he announced, as we sat outside in the afternoon.

So, there you have it, the visible wildlife, the beauty of the trees and lakes, and the quiet.

So, how can anyone in their right mind want to change all that?

Well, the town board of Cassian wants to change all that with more gravel pits, 80 acres more and they want to rezone county forest lands to do it. You can imagine the heartache of those land owners when the board members casually voted to do just that. And if the Oneida County Board OKs that, your county forest lands are up for grabs. You know what to do. The election for all county board members is in April. Make sure they know what you want.

The same reason I moved up to the North Woods, to enjoy the beauty, the lakes, the wildlife, the stars. Moved to the North Woods from Texas and I am loving it. Please do not destroy or re-zone the forest lands, the pristine land is more valuable than you know..
