From our readers
On behalf of all of us at The Stephenson National Bank & Trust, I'd like to extend a sincere "Thank You' directly to the law enforcement professionals in our region. We support the work they do every day to keep our communities safe; and we thank them for their tireless dedication.
It's no secret that every day the law enforcement community takes risks and suffers inconveniences to protect our communities and secure the safety of its citizens. They sometimes must go where others fear and respond to dangerous calls without knowing what lies ahead. We thank them for their diligent protection and courage to put themselves in harm's way to protect their neighbors.
As a community bank, we too are proud to look out for what is best for the members of our local community. Now, we have the opportunity to turn our attention the brave men and women who are here to support us right back. For that, we sincerely thank them.
Daniel J. Peterson,

Michelle Obama so passionately declared at the Democratic Convention how she has to be in a house built by slaves. The Republicans gave slaves their freedom 155 years ago.
The Ku Klux Klan was a Democratic organization and former Democratic Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia was the grand dragon of the Klan and served seven terms as a Senator.
Republicans are responsible for the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Act, the Jim Crowe Law and desegregation. The Democrats under FDR interned 120,000 Japanese in WWII.
Amazing how history seems to have been conveniently lost to the "friends of humanity", the Democrats. Many people know nothing of this and the president and Hillary suck up to the black population for their votes.
How many Democratic leaders, black or white, have ever gone to an inner city to offer some words of hope and inspiration? Sharpton, Obama, Pelosi, Clinton or Jackson, any members of the black caucus in the House of Representatives. Yet they are the ones to get blacks agitated to riot with their Marxist tactics and blame it on racism, white cops, and guns for their woes.
After many months of study, review and recommendation, the Marinette County Board of Supervisors, at their July meeting, voted unanimously to approve a proposal to proceed with high-priority repair projects at the UW-Marinette Field House, including major maintenance spending for the pool. Although the outcome of bidding must still fall within the budget limits already approved for capital expenditures, this vote signals a major commitment on the part of County Board supervisors to the future of the UW pool and the legacy it represents. As the operator of the pool, River Cities Community Pool Association, its members, staff and Board of Directors, wish to thank the Marinette County Board, Chairman Mark Anderson, County Administrator Shawn Henessee and former Chairman Vilas Schroeder for the confidence they have expressed in the ability of our Association to provide wellness and recreation opportunities for the Marinette County area, now and in the future.
Opened in 1994 and born from the desire of local businesses and individuals to provide a comprehensive aquatic facility to area residents, the pool continues its mission through the River Cities Association. In this effort we are grateful for the ongoing cooperation of UW-Marinette and Marinette County, key to the success of the Agreement under which we operate. Our Association continues to live up to its proclamation of "Excellence in Aquatics" and as a bridge to future recreation and wellness in the area. The depth of gratitude to Marinette County on the part of pool users and members cannot be overstated.
