Lakeland Times, Minocqua, Wisconsin
Friday, February 8, 2019 7:30 AM
I write this letter today to address some concerns I have with information that could be construed as “misleading” or information that is missing from an article in the Tuesday, Jan. 29 issue of The Lakeland Times, pertaining to the updated SPS 330 rule that governs firefighter safety in the State of Wisconsin.
  • To the Editor:

    I would like to reassure the community that the decision to close the Minocqua Public Library was not made lightly. 
  • To the Editor:

    I would like to reassure the community that the decision to close the Minocqua Public Library was not made lightly.
  • To the Editor:

    Just finished reading the Sunshine Week article which reviewed and graded our public officials and how committed they were, to not only the intent, but also the spirit of a transparent government with adherence to the access of public records. 
  • To the Editor:

    I read with great interest the article concerning the turtle that was recently found lying upside down on the ice, because I have experienced that same situation twice in my life, both times in the 1970s. 
  • To the Editor:

    The Republic of Cuba, is disingenuously framed by some as, “fundamentally democratic” and celebrated for providing free education, among other forms of government controlled distribution of goods and services.
  • To the Editor:

    I’m reading about the Z generation and the millennials enjoying their spring break on Miami’s beaches this past week, including my own experience in 1944 when our spring breakers were sent to war.
  • To the Editor:

    The decision to close the Minocqua Library due to coronavirus was not as well thought out as it could have been.
  • To the Editor:

    An open letter to the Minocqua Chamber of Commerce:
  • To the Editor:

    Local volunteers with two statewide non-partisan organizations have worked hard to give voters in 17 Northwoods municipalities a chance to say “yes” or “no” to two questions on their April 7 ballot.
  • To the Editor:

    “Telling it like it is” (Monday, March 10 edition of River News) by Emily Koester was a great piece of work.
  • Most citizens understand the importance of the United States Supreme Court. Do you understand how important it is to elect the right Justice to the Wisconsin Supreme Court?
  • The following was written by Robert Barkley, 2011, for Buzzflash:

    “First they came for your integrity. They did it subtly and over time as they obfuscated our textbooks to reflect a narrow ideology rather than the whole truth."
  • After reading the recent article covering the coronavirus entitled “Interesting to see the spin,” I was left wondering where was the spin. Although district administrator Jocelyn Smith did state “It’s just interesting to see the spin and the urgency that everyone’s feeling right now when most people don’t realize we’re checking in every day with the county nurse.”
  • Deeming themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries,” many local governments throughout the country are passing resolutions declaring or implying that state gun safety laws do not apply in their communities, that they are unconstitutional. Some of the resolutions go so far as refusing to enforce any state gun control laws, even before such laws are enacted. Some refuse to expend resources for state gun safety measures. These resolutions jeopardize public safety by interfering with the implementation of life-saving gun control laws. 
  • On April 7 we will be going to the polls to cast votes for not only for who we want to represent us, but how we want to be represented. Over a dozen communities in the Northwoods will have referendum questions advising our state representatives to change the way we draw district maps and to take the influence of dark money out of politics.
