Learn about Dr. Kate
To the Editor:

I strongly believe that people should go to the Dr. Kate Museum located behind the Krist Gas Station on Highway 51 and 2nd Avenue. People should go to the museum because they can learn about the history of our community. It is an awesome place filled with artifacts from our town.

Take your family to the Dr. Kate Museum
To the Editor:

I personally think that more people should go to the Dr Kate Museum located on Highway 51 and 2nd Avenue. You can go to the museum and learn more about our local history. I can't believe how many people don't know about the Dr. Kate Museum!

Friday, January 20, 2017

Support the community
To the Editor:

In my opinion, I strongly believe that people should go to the Dr. Kate Museum more often because the Dr. Kate Museum is very interesting. Why should you go? The Dr. Kate Museum provides free information about the Northwoods community for ages zero and up. You will soon be an expert on the past.

To the Editor:

Who are the tyrants?
To the Editor:

When the founding fathers drew up the Constitution, they said beware of the tyrants who will bring the U.S. down/ It appears that time is here.

Reader responds to MPD article
To the Editor:

Dear Mr. Jopek,

I reviewed your recent article in The Lakeland Times regarding the on-call status of the police supervisors at the Minocqua Police Department with disappointment. Although it appeared to be thorough with several interviews with police departments in surrounding communities, I thought it was petty, disrespectful and inconsiderate to the chief Jaeger and his staff.

To the Editor:

I would like to comment on Erv Teichmiller's letter in the Jan. 6 Lakeland Times "Fix the Affordable Care Act" [AKA Obamacare].

Purging DNR's website doesn't change climate facts
To the Editor:

In late December, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources altered and removed information on its website concerning climate change, its impacts, and ways to mitigate and adapt to those impacts (http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/greatlakes/climatechange.html).

'Betting the farm'
To the Editor:

Sen Tiffany and Rep. Jarchow stated last week that no harm can come to our waters because no one would intentionally do such a thing. Wow. That sure demonstrates how disconnected and divorced their ideas are from the real world in Northern Wisconsin.

Enforcement of the state's open government laws
To the Editor:

In an editorial in the Dec. 8 edition of The Lakeland Times, Gregg Walker and Richard Moore characterized Oneida County District Attorney, Michael Schiek, as a buffoon.

Friday, January 13, 2017

Response to Senator Tiffany and Rep. Jarchow
To the Editor:

Senator Tom Tiffany and Representative Adam Jarchow have sent a commentary to state newspapers claiming to be champions of the public good and labeling those who advocate for the environment as "dogmatic."

'Tim Cullen's quest for Wisconsin governor'
To the Editor:

Thought I had put the final nail in Tim Cullen's quest for Wisconsin governor coffin back in 1987-88. Guess not.

Hindman responds to student's letter
To the Editor:

Hello Rhinelander

Mr. Millot, you wrote a nice response. I respect your letter using nice words and good feelings about your school and staff but obviously my letter was not ridiculous and or insulting. Don't attack the messenger, help fix the problems.

This title is from the Lakeland Times, Dec. 9, 2016, on, the opinion page, Our View. With the notice that, "Our views represent the institutional voice of The Lakeland Times. They are researched and written independent of the newsroom." Greg Walker, publisher/Richard Moore, columnist.

'Spoiled children'
To the Editor:

"There is something rotten in the State of Denmark" (Shakespeare). Or in this case, in Washington, D.C. Is there any real proof that Russia hacked into our election system? If so, where is the proof? Sounds to me like the whole thing was manufactured by Obama and the Clinton mafia to undermine (read that sabotage) the Trump transition.

Audit
To the Editor:

When will the "audit" be complete? When will the audit be complete?? Will we ever know which countries, companies, or individuals will be favored by our President Elect?

Protection of clean air and water in jeopardy
To the Editor:

We want our children to have a healthy and safe environment. This future is in jeopardy with President-elect Donald Trump's nomination of Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency.

The Affordable Care Act, known as Obama Care, has been in place now for nearly six years, and it has offered health insurance and coverage for tens of millions of Americans.

Wisconsin: Forward or backward?
To the Editor:

It's a new year - time to evaluate events from the last several years. As I ponder the direction our state is moving, I am disturbed.

Reader writes to Rep. Kleefisch
Along with every other responsible Wisconsin citizen, I want to fight and help eradicate the abuse of heroin and other drugs in our state.

Payment of 2016 property taxes
To the Editor:

Oneida County taxpayers should have received their 2016 tax bills. If you did not receive your tax bill, you should contact the county or your local treasurer.

Merry Christmas from Bo-di-Lac Fire Dept. Women's Auxiliary
To the Editor:

On Dec. 1, 2016 the Bo-di-Lac Fire Department Women's Auxiliary held a Christmas gathering at Lake Placid Restaurant.

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

Response to Richard Moore column
To the Editor:

I wish I could say that Richard Moore's "California Dreamin'" was farce or comedy. Sadly it seems, his article is neither. So Mr. Moore would like 40 million people to succeed from the union because some of them don't share his views.

'Tis the season
To the Editor:

Tis the season and a new year.

A time to share the greatest gift of all. One that is everlasting and its one that rejects a price tag.

Friday, December 23, 2016

'The right thing for our country'
To the Editor:

The difference between Barack Obama and Donald Trump? Obama wasn't in office very long when he decided to embark on his "world apology tour" or the "P.A.D" tour (Put American Down).

Friday, December 23, 2016

Response to 'Rhinelander Fans'
To the Editor:

I would like to start by expressing that Ms. Hindman's comments were ridiculous and insulting, and that they didn't go unnoticed.

On behalf of the Lakeland Sharing Foundation Board of Directors, we would like to take the time to thank all of the individuals, businesses, churches, service organizations, banks and schools that donated their time, talents and money that enabled us to make our 2016 Christmas Distribution a huge success.

'Complete shock'
To the Editor:

It is a complete shock to me that my name was used as opposing the County Materials plant as we never, for a minute, felt any opposition to it.

'Up 30 percent'
To the Editor:

Hey Governor Walker,

This is confusing, the Wausau Daily Herald, (Nov. 28, 2016), reports the DNR reported 2 percent less deer killed than last year for the first four days. After opening weekend there was hardly anybody in the woods and no shots. Yet, after season, the north registered 30 percent more bucks.

'Drained my spirit'
To the Editor:

This election drained my spirit. My thinking is that for many the good character role model is less defined.

Friday, December 16, 2016

Social Security raise
To the Editor:

Thanks for nothing. We received a Social Security raise of .3 this year. Surprise!

Friday, December 16, 2016

Words of wisdom
To the Editor:

The article in question is 'Lawmakers: Special interests gearing up for massive tax increase.' In this divisive political time, it can be rather difficult to have an actual discussion on the merits of any infrastructure plan. Do we raise money via a gas tax and increase tab fees, do we borrow the money, or do we just scrap improvements altogether?

Friday, December 16, 2016

'What a gal!'
To the Editor:

I was so pleased to see in the Dec. 2 issue of The Lakeland Times the picture of Marilyn Miller tending the Salvation Army Kettle.

Friday, December 16, 2016

Reader writes about Medicare
To the Editor:

Now that Republicans control the national government, the "reform" of Medicare has leaped to the top of the agenda. I am not sure of the reason for this, as senior citizens generally love Medicare. I guess the main reason is that House Speaker Paul Ryan thinks it's a good idea. What better rational could there possibly be?
