On the Manitowish chain and the proposed dam order
Not all homeowners on the chain seem as concerned as myself and others are over the DNR’s new dam order to keep the water levels significantly higher (1 foot drawdown instead of 3-½ feet) on the Manitowish chain during the winter.

Supervisors represent the citizens' voice
At the 7/22/14 Vilas County board meeting, many supervisors listened, not to the people they are supposed to represent, but to outside special interests as evidenced by ATV representative speakers and ATV club audience members they invited from outside Vilas County to pack the meeting.

Writer wants Vilas County to consider motorized sports
 am deeply concerned that after a rash of strong-armed threats by a few people from the silent sport community many supervisors on the Vilas County board may be considering renouncing their recent decision on July 22 to allow a provision in the 15-year Vilas County Forest Comprehensive Land Plan that would allow the county board to be able to take into consideration any proposals and plans that implement the use of ATV/UTV/motorcycle trail or route systems on county highways or lands in Vilas County.

Writer comments on Vilas board meeting
I think the most important utterance at the “Plan” meeting was Charles Rayala’s reminder that as a supervisor your responsibility is to carry out what the people want.

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank the Vilas County supervisors who voted in favor of amending the Vilas County forest plan to allow town boards to ask the county board for permission to open county roads to ATV/UTV vehicles.

Writer for ATV use in Vilas County

I urge you to vote to approve the Phelps resolution and vote down any resolution to go to another referendum. Any referendum does not represent all land owners in Vilas County.

On Obama and impeachment

After reading the letter from Ron Lowe in the 8-8-14 edition of The Lakeland Times, and after I stopped laughing, a few things came to mind: (1) The mind of a liberal is a terrible thing to waste, and (2) “Where ignorance is bliss, ‘tis folly to be wise” (Thomas Gray).

On voting and the Congressional recess

This August, our nation honors the 49th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) of 1965, the historic civil rights legislation crafted to protect against discrimination in voting. Again this year, a gray cloud hangs over this momentous occasion.

Writer responds on ATVs and handicap accessibility

I would like to give my input. I am  referring to Linda Worbel’s letter in regard to the statement of a physically handicaped daughter and senior citizens experiencing the forest not being reason enough to allow ATVs in Vilas County.

I would like to thank the Vilas County Sheriff’s office, the Humane Society of Vilas County, Vilas County Animal Control and the Vilas County Coroner for the assistance they gave to me when my sister, Penny Kaufmann, was found unresponsive in her home.

'What are the people running our government really afraid of?'

Why is it that most politicians of both parties have no problem subsidizing the Iron Dome to protect Israel from enemy air attacks with billions of dollars in taxpayer money but claim they haven’t the funds to build a fence to protect our southern border?

'Be a responsible pet owner'

Anytime you suspect animal abuse, neglect, abandonment, theft, or if you see a lost or injured animal, do not look the other way. You should call your local animal authority, police, or sheriff’s department. Get them to investigate.

Should Scott Walker be re-elected?
Gov. Scott Walker was in Rhinelander recently campaigning for reelection (The Lakeland Times, 7-8-2014). He claimed the economy is better including job growth, and that taxes on a typical home are generally lower than they were when he took office.

Writer concerned about potential mine's legacy
Some people say, “We had iron mining in the Penokees before; the environment is fine now; and we need jobs.” But the open-pit taconite mine proposed by GTAC wouldn’t be like grandfather’s mine.
