Open letter to the community
Our community has an important decision to make about the availability of compassionate, personalized and affordable healthcare services for local residents. And recent statements about the impact of a proposed 12-bed limited-service hospital in Woodruff by Marshfield Clinic may have left people with inaccurate impressions. We would like to share some facts.

Meeting the health care needs of the community is our No. 1 priority
That's the bottom line, and what we've been saying from the day we announced our plans. In fact, that should be the number one priority of any health care organization. Building our own hospital where our physicians will have access to the latest state-of-the-art technology and resources puts us in a position to serve the care needs of the next generation, the kind of care our patients deserve.

That means more access, more affordability and higher quality of care and overall better patient experience delivered by the same trusted physicians our patients have come to know and trust.

Earth Day dopes
Expect more craziness this weekend. Earth Day is Saturday. This year's theme: Government must "do more" about climate change because "consequences of inaction are too high to risk."

They make it sound so simple:

1) Man causes global warming.

2) Warming is obviously harmful.

3) Government can stop it.

Each claim is dubious or wrong.

Doesn't look as if he's from around here
When John McCain, after graduating from Annapolis and spending 22 years in the Navy, made his first run for Congress from Arizona, he was challenged by a Republican primary opponent for not having lived long in the state. McCain, who, as a POW for 5 1/2 years, had been tortured by the North Vietnamese, effectively countered, "The place where I've lived the longest is Hanoi."

Warrior Trump
Somehow, firing Tomahawk missiles at Syria suddenly changed people's opinions of President Trump. Now they call him a "serious" leader.

William Kristol said Trump's action "reassures you."

Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain, long critical of Trump, now say he "deserves the support of the American people."

Reader responds to deer feeding article
To the Editor:

I read with interest Richard Moore's lead article in the Friday, April 14, 2017 issue of The Lakeland Times detailing the opinion of Judge Thomas Hruz which upheld the lower court's dismissal of a DNR citation for allegedly violating the state statute which forbids bait and feed placement for hunting purposes. This ruling now negates a confusing and unpopular DNR ban on deer feeding.

Letter to Karl Jennich
To the Editor:

Good morning Mr. Jennich,

This letter is to inform you of my opposition to Marshfield Clinic's proposal to build a 12 bed hospital. In our little community this is absolutely absurd. Two years ago I wrote to everyone on the local and county level.

'The right to choose'
To the Editor:

I am finally getting the nerve to write this letter.

I am tired of reading in the paper how bad the Marshfield Clinic is.

I do not like Howard Young one bit. I have been in ER over the years several times. Four of those times I was not treated nice or (with) respect at all.

Medical care in the Lakeland area
To the Editor:

A front-page article on The Washington Post (April 12, 2017) spoke of "an epidemic of dying hospitals across rural America." It is important to our community that we do not rejoin the rural situation we were once in, prior to 1954, when the nearest hospital was in Rhinelander.

A very special heartfelt thanks goes to the public service, local fire department, and town crews who worked nonstop after our recent severe storm.
