Lakeland Times, Minocqua, Wisconsin
Friday, February 8, 2019 7:30 AM
I write this letter today to address some concerns I have with information that could be construed as “misleading” or information that is missing from an article in the Tuesday, Jan. 29 issue of The Lakeland Times, pertaining to the updated SPS 330 rule that governs firefighter safety in the State of Wisconsin.
  • Everybody wants a story. Make it sensational. Make it news. The bigger the lie the more believable according to World War II Nazis. They fed the public the same BS as in todays media. 
  • I was looking to find out just what the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives have accomplished this year. One thing I stumbled on and was totally surprised was a vote and pass of a bill on July 17, 2019. Surprised because what the MSM (main stream media) and the Democrats say and what they do are two completely opposite things.
  • This letter is to encourage Boulder Junction folks to attend the special town meeting of electors at 6 p.m. on Nov. 14 and to vote in support of a plan for broadband. To gain information, please go to www.townofboulderjunction.org, look under departments; Economic Development — to view an information meeting on broadband expansion. It is eye-opening.
  • And she wants to share her story ...

    A life-changing trip! And I really believe it was for everyone who made the trek!
  • The good Democrats are saying nothing about what the bad Democrats are doing. So that makes them just as guilty. What happened to the Democratic Party?
  • We, the people, voted with a 63% majority, to ban mining in Lynne township on a referendum on last November’s election ballet. Was it just for Lynne Township or was it for all of Oneida County?
  • Tricia Zunker made her media announcement on Monday, Oct. 14, for her bid for the empty Congressional 7th District seat. She chose to make it at The Dells of Eau Claire, in Easton, just east of Wausau.
  • Amid the ridiculously large field of candidates for the Democratic nomination for president (most of whom have no earthly business running for that office), one person stands out: Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.
  • On Friday, Oct. 11, 2019 the Attorney General of the United States, William Barr, delivered remarks at the law school of the University of Notre Dame. The Attorney General has an obligation to ensure that the rights of all Americans are honored and respected. That is not what happened in this speech. 
  • I was going to write this for all my Democrat friends, but I am sure they do not consider me a friend anymore. I’ll just make this to the Democrats.
  • It only makes sense that President Trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate vice president Biden’s son regarding corruption. Years after the Trump Administration is completed, when it is brought up in discussion, corruption will be the first word that will come to mind for many persons.
  • Tom Tiffany’s call for a Convention of the States may be one of the better things he’s ever come up with. I’m sure he knows that the agenda will be set after the convention is convened, and there is no guarantee that his issues will be honored.
  • When I was in the Army they didn’t allow gays in the service, then along came Bill Clinton and his “Don’t Ask-Don’t Tell.” Next came gay marriage and Barack Obama, who said it was alright for people to use the other gender’s washrooms, provided they identified themselves as being of the other sex.
  • In a recent Our View column “The confiscation of democracy, and of freedom itself” (Oct. 4), the authors made a number of assertions that seem to come from the GOP talking point memos that stress “incite fear.”
  • During the Spanish Civil War, George Orwell, author of “1984,” joined socialist/communists in sympathy with his own socialist beliefs. There he met the reality of the Soviet leadership sent to lead the Republican/socialist forces. 
  • David Barnhill wrote in a recent letter to the editor (the Friday, Aug. 30 issue) about the realities of the climate crisis which are still being disputed in The Lakeland Times by (Gregg) Walker and (Richard) Moore as just a hoax.
  • I am a high school climate activist in Ashland, and was the lead organizer of the Climate Strike there (Minocqua) on Sept. 20. The following Letter to the Editor answers the questions of why and how people should fight the climate crisis. 
  • I wish to express my gratitude to those who came to my aide this past week. How fortunate we are to live in a community where caring good neighbors are willing to help.
  • In a recent letter Rick Holman of Minocqua makes some interesting predictions. First, he states that whoever wins the Democratic Party presidential nomination will have, “no chance of actually winning an actual race.” He continues, “The 2020 election is already over. Irrelevant of what the MSM (main stream media) says, just get real.”
