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.
  • It’s my belief that the Lakeland area should go to the AWESOME Dr. Kate Museum because you can learn all about Woodruff a long long time ago and about Dr. Kate.
  • There are a few simple principles of an authentic democracy. One person, one vote. Every vote is equal.
  • We want to thank the Minocqua and Hazelhurst fire departments for their prompt response to the chimney fire that we had this past Monday evening, April 8. 
  • We would like to remind property taxpayers to talk with their assessor or attend their Town/City Open Book meeting to review the assessment roll if they question the assessed value of their property.  Some municipalities have Open Book meetings starting in April.
  • Forty years ago this year two vigorous, energetic veterinarians, Marty Smith and Rory Foster, practicing in Minocqua, saw a need for a wildlife rehabilitation facility in the area, and proceeded to found the Northwoods Wildlife Center.
  • You know, with the obvious lack of security at Trump’s Mar-A-Lago Resort down in Florida, I think it’s time for the U.S. government to use eminent domain to seize Trump’s private property and build a wall around Mar-A-Lago in order to ensure our national security. 
  • To the Editor:

  • Editor’s note: To answer the questions presented in this letter, the newspaper uses Vilas County Judge Neal A. Nielsen’s nickname of “Chip” in first references of the judge in publications because that is the name he was widely know by long before he was a judge, and even the state Supreme Court refers to him that way, too.

    It is reality-check time for Democrats if they are honest about their desire to deny Donald Trump a second term, and to that end they need to start prioritizing the issues that will probably matter most to voters and eliminate the noise. (subscriber access)
