The bottom line on Net Neutrality

On Feb. 26, 2015, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) followed Chairman Tom Wheeler’s plan to base Net Neutrality rules on Title II of the Communications Act, giving internet users the strongest protections possible by making broadband networks open, accessible, reliable and affordable for everyone.

Writer comments on NR115 opinion

The tone of Richard Moore’s article about NR 115 (Friday, June 12) strongly implies it’s a good thing for everyone if counties can’t enact shoreland protections stricter than the state’s minimum standards. This is a horribly misguided opinion.

Writer responds concerning public education
I would like to comment on Joyce Luedke’s letter in the May 29 Lakeland Times, “Public Education is the Foundation of a Free Society.”

Say no to condo development

As a longtime visitor and vacationer to northern Wisconsin I’m concerned about the future of the Northwoods.

Thoughts about condominium project

I hope this will serve to answer some of the concerns expressed by Mark Northern in the June 12, 2015, issue of The Lakeland Times.

Writer stands up for pink building

Having been born and raised in the wonderful town of Manitowish Waters I have seen many changes over the years. At the present the town has had wonderful face lifts thanks to many very nice people.

A liberal? No

To answer Keith Best’s question — “Do we want a liberal representing us?” (6-5-15 Lakeland Times). A resounding “No” when it comes to Mr. Feingold. He was a do-nothing senator who was “ousted” in favor of Ron Johnson, and I see no reason to bring him back.

Hogwash and nonsense

Sometimes the Letters to the Editor remind me of Yogi Berra. He said some interesting things. I quote, “Baseball is 90 percent mental and the other half is physical.”

'Put our children first'
The high school graduates of 2015 have so much to be proud of as they move on to pursue their dreams.

Senior center questions

I wrote the following note in February. I never signed my name — so it was never published.

Writer defends 'hockey stick' letter
Michael Mann stridently defends his hockey stick graph; he has every right to do so. But he does so using a strong aggressive narrative that I “did a tremendous disservice,” “spread falsehoods,” “parroted baseless talking points,” “shamelessly subjected readers to falsehoods,” spread a shopworn myth, “made assertions that were distorted, half truth or plain untruth.” And that my “most egregious false statement was about the ‘hockey stick’ reconstruction — Mann’s work.”

Writer speaks out on VC ATV vote

Shame on nine Vilas County Supervisors’ vote on May 26, 2015, to expand ATV routes in Lac du Flambeau even after receipt of LdF Tribal President Henry “Butch” St. Germaine’s four-point letter outlining: a) the tribe’s opposition to such expansion within the reservation boundaries b) concern for not being consulted over such action c) disappointment with LdF town for proceeding regardless of two tribal membership votes rejecting any expansion d) a request to be consulted for discussion of those concerns.

Writer offers final climate change letter
Thanks to Charles Boyd (May 19) for a perfect illustration of what I had previously mentioned: the creation of an alternate reality.

'Noble efforts, all for nothing'
Are we allowed to state the obvious, yet politically incorrect, truth anymore or is it forbidden when it is critical of minority groups?

Writer continues 'hockey stick' discussion
You gotta admire the well-oiled and far-reaching propaganda machine of the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW) lobby when Michael Mann himself, clown prince of CAGW royalty, rushes to plug a crack in the dike represented by a local resident’s opinion (Letters, May 22.)

From Oakland to Baltimore in 50 Years
When Huey Newton and Bobby Seale organized the Black Panthers in 1966, Oakland was quickly becoming the focus of resistance to traditional American civil structures.

UW-Extension partners are working for us

In 1998 I was growing cranberries for a living in far northern Wisconsin. I became intensely interested in trying to do something about what many of us felt was intolerable racism towards Native Americans as treaty rights were upheld and being practiced on our lakes.

Mr. Holman asks readers to let him know if he is wrong in his letter listing eight items that appear to be the direction or the goals of the Democratic party...

The world I live in ...
David Barnhill is profoundly correct that we live in “two worlds” when it comes to interpreting the arguments for and against the hypothesis of catastrophic anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming — or CAGW. (Letters, May 8)

An expert on all topics?
Republican State Senator Tom Tiffany recently admitted he asked Scott Walker to cut DNR scientist positions because he believes they spent too much time on climate change issues and their impact on the environment.

'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.

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.

On behalf of Ministry Health Care’s Northern Region and our 1,630 associates and healthcare providers in Crandon, Eagle River, Laona, Rhinelander, Tomahawk and Woodruff, a heartfelt thank you to House and Senate Legislators for supporting those we serve in the community and voting for the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015.

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.
