'Do we need more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere?'
The purpose of this article is to alert our fellow citizens to a masterful description of the history and role of carbon dioxide (CO2) on our planet. The article was written by Dr. Patrick Moore, co-founder and former member of Greenpeace and a skeptic about the misleading, gratuitous claims of the alarmists about catastrophic anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming (AGW) as a result of increased CO2 concentrations released into the atmosphere.

'Thanks to the VA'
There are many veterans who feel the way I do but I personally wanted to send a note of thanks to the staff at the VA (volunteers, techs, nurses, Veterans Service Office and doctors).

'Many, many questions need to be answered'
The latest plans outlined for a water bottling plant on Carlin Lake in Presque Isle pose ecological questions that potentially affect everyone on every lake up north.

On Paris
Paris, the city of light, was rocked by deadly terrorist attacks. And don't say the same thing can't happen in America. We have our own homegrown terrorists.

'Roger Pukall'
The Roman stoic philosopher, Seneca, pointed out that of 100 soldiers, one will be a hero and that a gifted craftsman or artist will be one of a thousand, but that a truly accomplished man will be only one in a million. Without question, Roger Pukall fits into the last category.

Bottling plant in Presque Isle
All inhabitants were enriched with dominion over the land. We must protect our water rights. Many states have learned that with unpredictable climate change one day we can drink, swim and fish in water and the next we are inhaling the dust of drought and the smoke of fire. It is meant for the survival of the living on earth and not meant to quench the thirst of greed and profit.

Heartfelt thanks
It is with very deep heartfelt thanks that my family and I owe this community.

The benefit given on my behalf was overwhelming, the amount of support shown incredible. And to be honest, I needed it!

'Wisconsin's Failing Health'
Since Scott Walker returned from the campaign trail Wisconsin has a flurry of new laws; laws that continue to silence the voice of Wisconsin residents. Laws that trash the common good under the guise of "making democracy stronger" The only cure is public demand for honest accountability from our leaders and much less money needed to qualify for office.

Writer defends chamber
In Richard Moore's opinion piece entitled "Who needs tourism?" published on 10/31, he upbraided the Minocqua Chamber of Commerce's staff, and its Director, Krystal Westfahl, for sending out a questionnaire to area businesses that included a question on whether Beef-A-Rama should be continued.

'Who needs tourism?'
Who needs tourism? All of us.

'What does it mean to be a Military Veteran?'
As Veterans Day approaches, I am sitting in my office viewing a picture of some of the men with whom I served in the USAF. We were in Primary Flight training at Marana Air Base (now Pinal Airpark) Class of 58E.

Reading a letter from a young Marine Lieutenant written afte the battle of Saipan in World War II that closes with "everything's under control," you say quietly to yourself, "Sure it is."

On the Minocqua Chamber
What is going on Minocqua Chamber?

Did everything go downhill after Beth left last year?

I noticed in the paper last week they are considering ceasing the Beef-A-Rama?

Has someone stepped into the Funny Farm?

'USA National Debt'
Once again the federal government is running out of money! My suggestion is maybe they should spend less money, but that's not my point here.

'Muzzling average citizens' voices'
On Sunday, Nov. 8, 2015, at 10 a.m., Matt Rothschild of Wisconsin Democracy Campaign will be speaking at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center near Ashland.

'Tie votes result in no action'
Senator Tiffany's electronic newsletter says proposed changes to the GAB in SB 294 will simply make it like the FEC (Federal Elections Commission).

Writer opposes recent letter
I feel a need to comment to John Seefeldt regarding his letter concerning his experience with Marshfield Clinic and Dr. Thomas.

'Wolves should remain protected'
After three decades of federal protection, and amazing efforts by biologists and wolf advocates, wolves are just beginning to have stable populations in some of their former range in Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota.

'Who am I?'
Music lovers might remember Sam Cooke, Dusty Springfield and Ricky Nelson songs and lyrics.

Robbing a bank
If I wanted to rob a bank, and it was within my power, I would first pass a law saying it was legal for chubby, middle aged, white guys with beards to rob banks legally. Then I could have lots of money. If I wanted to deal cocaine, and it was within my power, I would pass a law saying it was legal to do so. Another quick way to make money.

'A new Cold War'
I'm a "Baby Boomer" born in the 1950s. As a kid, I grew up in a typical middle class "Nuclear Family." Like most kids of that time, I have numerous memories of the seemingly endless "Cold War" between the United States and former Soviet Union. And some of these memories are indelibly etched in my mind due to the significance or severity of the events that created them.

Northwoods citizens good stewards of NHAL
Upon traveling back to the Northwoods this summer I was so relieved to see that The Northern Highland American Legion Forest continues to be managed well.

'The hypocracy of the left'
The hypocracy of the left: Every time another nut-job decides to go out and kill a bunch of innocent people, we can expect an appearance by Obama to push his agenda for gun control.

'Wisconsin's values are at stake'
One-party rule is leading to the loss of rights and protections in Wisconsin. The messages below are to Governor Walker and reflect the need to maintain our rights, local control, and the common good.

Thanks for a successful blood drive
Thank you for the wonderful people who came to donate the gift of life at the Mercer Lioness Blood Drive, sponsored by the Mercer Lioness Club, held recently.

'Hands off the GAB'
With Halloween fast approaching, we succumb to a morbid curiosity about the ongoing horror show produced by Republican legislators in Madison and ask: "What is driving their evil attack on the Government Accountability Board (GAB)?"
Tuesday, October 20, 2015

'Who is L. Brent Bozell and why is he so angry?'
After reading several of his columns in The Lakeland Times recently, this is the question I have. He is so predictable, downright angry and negative that often I have difficulty finishing his column whether I agree with his premise or not.

Marshfield physician offers view
I read the recent letter regarding Marshfield Clinic's effort to enhance its health care services in Minocqua. As a Marshfield Clinic practicing physician, my unique perspective allows me to offer additional information.

Punishment not severe enough for dog abusers
Politics and immigrants have taken over the news lately, but another group is still fighting for their lives... innocent dogs in 10,000 puppy mills.

LWV offers statement on GAB
Eight years ago an almost unanimous, bipartisan legislature responded to a real problem with an innovative solution - the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board. Today legislative leaders, led by Rep. Dean Knudson (R-Hudson) and Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester), are proposing to disband the GAB and replace it with a system that is a known failure.

Thanks to Holy Family
Kudos and thanks to Holy Family Catholic Church for being such great partners in the relocation of the Oneida County Department on Aging's Woodruff Senior Nutrition Dining Site and Meals on Wheels program.

A 'wise decision' from the planning and zoning committee
We are all quick to criticize government, but seldom so we realize just how hard it is to govern. Making the right choices to benefit the community requires government to be a "Broker of Interests."

'A worthy goal'
Politics in America has always been a crazy business, but it seems we are getting an extra dose of lunacy this time around. Have to agree with John Fanning (LT letter of 10/2/15), when he says it is time to "Dump Trump."
Tuesday, October 13, 2015

'Now is the time'
Yes! Now is the time for Wisconsin  to reform its redistricting process through common sense taxpayer-saving legislation - the Redistricting Reform Bill.
Tuesday, October 13, 2015

'It's time to reform redistricting'
Did you know that in the 2012 Wisconsin State Senate races 46 percent of the people voted for Republican candidates and 53 percent voted for Democratic candidates? Yet the seats won by Republicans and Democrats were split 50/50.

On 'The Donald'
Despite his inability to answer some of the questions asked in recent debates and and that he seems quite less prepared than the other Republican candidates for president, Donald Trump remains the leader in recent polls.
