'Moore peddles discredited fossil fuel industry propaganda'
An individual named Vern Moore did a tremendous disservice to your readers by spreading falsehoods about the topic of human-caused climate change in his recent letter (“Mann's Hockey Stick and climate change,” 5/15).

What does a D.C. judge know about Wisconsin wolves?

I read Melissa Smith’s letter to the editor of The Lakeland Times (Friday, May 8, 2015). While I agree the DNR has screwed up our deer population (too many doe permits for too many years), I have to wonder how a judge in Washington D.C. knows so much about Wisconsin wolves?

Writer 'appalled' by opinion piece

I was appalled that The Lakeland Times, Gregg Walker and Richard Moore would publish an opinion “Life isn’t fair? Give the Good-ol-boys a break!” To compare our Vilas County elected supervisors to “The Good-ol-boys” is outrageous.

Pappy and the 'govment'

For some reason as I read the newspapers lately I keep being reminded of Huck Finn’s Pappy.

Writer responds to golbal warming 'sermons'

I was painfully enraptured by reading the global warming sermons preached by the Reverend Doctor David Barnhill. His list of expertise requirements to understand global warming omits those critical disciplines of residential plumbing, symphonic composition, vascular surgery, and veterinary science along with those other irrelevant disciplines of physics, mathematics, chemistry, astronomy, and meteorology.

Mann's Hockey Stick and climate change
There is another controversial area that is necessary for readers to understand the junk science that is being propagated in the climate change arena.

Writer seeks better representation

As a sportsman and a scientist who cares deeply about the north country, I implore the people of the 12th District to find a better alternative for representation that Senator Tiffany.

More to the story Mr. Moore
In the April 17 edition of The Lakeland Times, there were several articles that need revision to learn the entire story.

Be a responsible pet adopter

Adopt — don’t shop. Shelters and rescues are non-profit groups, unlike a breeder, licensed or back-yard, who is strictly for profiting off an animals life.

Thanks for a great show

We just attended an excellent performance by the Lakeland Community Band, directed by Jim Pekol, at the Campanile Center.

Writer concerned about Little Rice emergency response
Wake up town of Little Rice! You don’t have first responders that arrive to medical calls before the ambulance arrives.

Are these the Democrats' goals for America?

Please let me know if I’m wrong in this letter. I have listed eight items that appear to be the direction or the goals of the Democratic party for the United States of America. There is a reason these are not listed in order.

Writer comments on pseudo-facts, half-truths and misleading information
Writers often mix fact and opinion and the readers of The Lakeland Times have come to expect this “mixing” from certain reporters in their articles.

A huge thank you goes out to all the area businesses that contributed to the April 18 Daddy & Daughter dance at Arbor Vitae-Woodruff Elementary. More than 70 families enjoyed the evening of fun and dancing.

Show us the evidence
It’s ironic that Jeffrey Bada advises Vern Moore (Letters, April 14) to read and rely on John Cook’s “scientific literature” regarding the much ballyhooed 97 percent global warming “consensus” when Mr. Bada himself could have caught up with our discussion by reading my letter of March 6 in which I’d already described how knowledgeable critics have reviewed and exposed Cook’s paper as a deeply flawed public relations project rather than legitimate research.

Support public television and public radio

Did you know that public radio originated in Wisconsin on the campus of the University in Madison? Back in the 20s and 30s and later, because of the UW connection, the Wisconsin Idea led the university to develop programs and short courses for schools throughout the state to use to enrich the learning experience for children in the K-12 schools all over the state.

Oneida County Clerk on the spring election

First, as County Clerk, my sincere apologies to all the media and to all of my Oneida County constituents for being unable to provide the spring election results via the Oneida County website. Election results are extremely important to me as I know they are to you.

OC Treasurer gives tax reminder
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.

Follow the real science
I’m very glad to see that Mr. Holcombe and I agree on one thing: to understand the climate crisis we should rely on climate science (Letters to the Editor, March 27).

'A coincidence or carbon dioxide induced warming?'
Vern Moore in his Letter to the Editor (Lakeland Times, 3/31/2015) categorically asserts that the statement 97 percent of climate scientists agree that recent climate changes are caused by human activities is a “lie” and “contemptuous propaganda.”

How is it that SS is 'financially secure?'

Recently, Rep. Reid Ribble had a lengthy article published in the Appleton Post Crescent.

The Northwoods bring out the best in people

The Northwoods holds a special place in many hearts.

The peace and tranquility therin can only be found in the solitude of nature’s embrace.

Pleased with the care received

In January of 2015 I fell and broke my back.

Budget cuts and the UW system
The educational system of Wisconsin is slowly being dismantled not only by Governor Walker himself, but also his slew of supporters. I, as a college student who currently attends UW Marathon County in Wausau, can say with the most utter sincerity that this is a disgrace not only to the great state of Wisconsin, but to the nation that we call home.

Governor, legislature attacking public schools

Recently, I sent checks to five public schools with a letter. I can’t in good conscience accept the “bribe” of a so-called tax refund when it impacts the welfare of my grandchildren and over 800,000 students attending public schools.

Writers comment on potential elimination of citizen boards
The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) have, for many years, been governed by citizen policy boards.

Attend your county Conservation Congress spring hearing

First of all, I would like to encourage all of you that hunt and fish in the state of Wisconsin to take the opportunity to attend your local Conservation Congress spring county meeting set for Monday, April 13.

No transparency here

How sad that Mr. Moore knows so little about the purpose of the Natural Resources Board and the origins of the proposals that they deal with, that he would view it as a “rubber stamp” for the DNR secretary.

Is it a 'different type of cold?'

I have The Lakeland Times of March 3, 2015, in front of me — you are talking about winter between Mercer and Florida.

Vote Daley for justice; 'yes' on referendum

An important election is quickly approaching on April 7. I urge you to support James Daley for the Supreme Court in Wisconsin. He is a veteran and a career public servant with decades of experience in serving our state’s citizens while upholding the values and principles that we hold dearly.

Easter is coming and many people are tempted to buy one of those cute little bunnies that appear at pet stores.

Vote Ann Walsh Bradley for State Supreme Court

With great pride I declare my utmost support for Justice Ann Walsh Bradley. She represents all that our citizens have stood for, in what Wisconsin values most, in representing our rights through the judicial system. She, like many of us, was born, raised and educated in Wisconsin’s finest public educational institutions.
