No conspiracy theory, Billy Fried, just the facts
As reported by The Times, when Lakeland Times publisher Gregg Walker addressed Oneida County's public safety committee last week, supervisor Billy Fried made several assertions about both the nature of Walker's invitation and the content of Walker's remarks.

We feel Mr. Fried's comments demand a straightforward and public response, both to factually set the record straight and to warn against the dangers of elitism.

Reader responds to Moore's autism article
To the Editor:

Mr. Moore,

In regard to your article, "Teaching in the time of autism," you are attempting to support that the incidence rate of autism is rising to an astronomical level. You casually mention (pg. 25) that some in the scientific community insist that the increase on diagnoses can be attributed to "diagnostic name substitution."

Support for wolves
To the Editor:

It's not so much that wolves should remain on the Endangered Species List for biological reasons for me, although that argument is valid, but certainly they should remain on the ESA until democracy and transparency exist in both state and federal wildlife and agricultural agencies.

'Both walk their talk'
To the Editor:

Wisconsin is lucky to have two good, honest candidates for US Senate this fall, who both walk the talk. I am fortunate to know and highly respect both of them. Frankly, I am not sure how to vote, but like football, in politics there is always a winner and a loser.

'A profound mistake'
To the Editor:

Last March I offered a letter in which I agreed with Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio that Donald Trump is a fraud and a con man. Now, six months later, have I found any reason that might lead me to soften that opinion? Any reason at all? The answer is clearly no; in fact, the more one learns of Mr. Trump, the more obvious it becomes.
