Lakeland Times, Minocqua, Wisconsin

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.
  • The water level in the Chain above the dam will likely decrease from its current level and reach 8 feet, 0 inches sometime shortly before Oct. 1. 
  • Mr. Conason, if you believe most Americans would be turned off by Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s video showing “a noble police officer arming for battle against a crowd of screaming, flag-burning protesters,” think again.  
  • Thank you for the opportunity to comment on water quality management goals for Wisconsin. Yes, please do continue with a science-based approach. I understand that water in southern Wisconsin is already threatened or ruined. But please do not forget that we have precious pure water resources in the north, especially Oneida and Vilas counties.
  • The writer of the Sept. 6 “What Warming” letter has taken cherry-picking to an admirable level. He has interpreted a NOAA press release reporting surface temperatures from 114 reporting stations (that's about two per state) which was a publication of raw data and conflated it with one of the conservative Real Clear Media’s 15 brands — Real Clear Energy website’s opinion pieces.
  • I feel the need to comment on the new proposed logo “Let’s Minocqua.” As a longtime visitor to your area (40 years), I may have a different view of this new idea.
  • This afternoon (Aug. 31) my wife and I arrived at the airport in Ironwood from Minneapolis. A friend met us to drive us home to our residence in Boulder Junction. About half way between Marenisco and Presque Isle, my wife’s cell phone (in her purse) started making a weird sound. When she got it out of her purse she discovered it had dialed 911 all by itself. She promptly turned it off.
  • Well, you need to put down your comic books and your git fiddles ... grab a pair of ear muffs and head to Campanile. For only there you will witness the invasion of Scotland’s The Red Hot Chili Pipers.
  • Now comes climate alarmist Pam McVety (“Climate change is no party,” The Lakeland Times, 20 Aug. 2019), with a background in environmental issues while formerly employed in Florida, who claims that Gregg Walker and Richard Moore are wrong in just about everything they wrote of on climate change in their Aug. 9 editorial in The Lakeland Times (“Partying like there’s no tomorrow”). 
  • My husband and I (along with the majority of citizens and tax payers of Boulder Junction) are extremely concerned about the attempts at allowing ATVs on our town roads and even in town itself.
  • The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) implemented, beginning in 2005, a new surface temperature measurement system in the U.S.
  • Recently our family had to make the difficult decision to place our mother in Extended Care after a major fall. At 98 years of age, it was the last thing we wanted to do.
  • Who are the asylum seekers?

    A married couple Jean and Joe Roach, from our area, took their vacation time to go and find out.
  • It was good to see you taking responsibility (Our View: Reducing mass violence) for the mess we are in by saying “We have a mental health problem”. 
  • I am a simple person who seeks simple solutions to problems. I understand that Oneida County paid for research from Carlson-Dettmann that indicated our county employees are in need of an $800,000 pay raise across the group to be “competitive” with neighboring county’s wages. 
  • To the Editor:

    Recently, in a lengthy opinion piece, Gregg Walker and Richard Moore assured us that there is “not a shred of evidence” to support the idea that we are in a climate crisis. (subscriber access)
  • To the Editor:

    Editor’s note: The following letter was originally sent to Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin) on Aug. 12.

    On June 17 I emailed asking if you had read the Mueller Report. (subscriber access)
  • To the Editor:

    I hope the editorial board at The Lakeland Times will join many others in our area to encourage Tom Tiffany to run for Congress. (subscriber access)
  • I would like to respond to Mike Eklund’s letter published on Aug. 13.
  • I am talking about the Democrat people that can read and understand. If you are one of them, continue reading. If not, I do not know what to say to help you.

    It should be obvious by now the Democrat establishment is extremely corrupt and anti-American. 
  • Our family has owned lakefront property in Oneida County for nearly 65 years. It has been a summer home, a permanent residence, and now once again is a summer home. I am one of the 75% of non-resident lake property owners. As a group, lake property owners provide 73% of Oneida County’s tax revenue (Dave Noel: “Economic Value of Lakes & Rivers in Oneida County, Wisconsin”).
