From our readers

Editor, Peshtigo Times:

At the Town of Beaver Budget and Town Board meetings on Monday, Nov. 7 there was a very brief discussion on what is happening with the former Beaver Trading Post property on Hwy. 141 at County P.

There were questions about rumors that it was to be purchased by someone who wanted to establish an "adult entertainment" business there.

When asked if those rumors were true, I, as town chair, told them honestly that there had been an inquiry, but nothing came of it, so the rumor was just that - an unsubstantiated rumor. I also said the latest information is that there is a prospective purchaser who may want to establish a cheese and wine shop there.

Clerk Barb Patz then said she had checked with the Towns Association to see if there was anything the town could do to stop an adult entertainment business from opening if the rumor turned out to be true. She was told if the town wanted to stop it they could pass a zoning ordinance, but if so they would need to get going on zoning restrictions right now, because once someone buys it for that purpose it would be possibly too late, almost impossible to stop.

I want to assure the residents of Beaver that there is no current proposal to establish an adult entertainment business. Also, Jamie Graetz has asked us to start the wheels in motion for a zoning ordinance to prohibit adult entertainment businesses and we are going to be working on that. Before an ordinance is passed there will be public hearings to keep everyone informed.

As to the possible purchaser, let me repeat, to my knowledge there are no plans afoot to establish an adult entertainment business there or anywhere else in Beaver.

The Town Board, has the authority to approve or deny beer and liquor licenses and we would have the final say if anyone planning such a business did apply. I am quite certain our decision would be to deny.

We do need a good business on that property, perhaps a bar and restaurant as it was before, or a cheese and wine shop would be a good fit. We certainly do not need an "adult entertainment" business there or anywhere else in our town.

Dave Bedora,

Beaver Town Chair



Letter to Editor:

I'm sending this very special thank you for two kind and generous gentlemen who graciously paid for our supper at Gateway in Crivitz on Friday, Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. We did not realize it until we asked for our bill. By that time they had already left. We sincerely appreciate their kindness. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I wish we could thank you in persons.

Sincerely,

Bonne and Ralph,

Sheila and Dave,

Pound

Re: Where are the jobs?

There seems to be two primary theories that explain our job losses in manufacturing: one is that manufacturing moved to the low wage countries; and two, computers, robots, and mechanization have displaced labor. The Republican political dialogue seems to say or imply that jobs were mainly lost to low wage countries.

Two important facts seem critical to me to find a realistic solution. The first is that the total value of goods manufactured in the US was about $2 trillion in 2015, up from $1.75 trillion in 2005, but the number of American workers employed in manufacturing dropped from about 1.45 million to 1.25 in the same period. In other words, more value was gotten for less labor.

The second point is that the effect of automation, computers, and robots on the labor market accounts for 2/3 to 3/4 the loss of jobs according to a study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. What the study did show is that it contributed to some wage suppression.

It is unrealistic to expect manufacturers to give up the efficiencies and precision of robotics, and mechanization for high labor cost and the inefficiencies inherent in human labor. We can't turn the clock back or expect the advantages of robotics and mechanization to decrease. Hence, the core issue is not trade pacts, but retraining, creation of new job areas, labor mobility, and the redefinition of labor.

Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my heartfelt thank you to John and Mary Lesandrini and their cheerful staff at The Hometown Family Restaurant for serving up a very nice breakfast buffet for all the veterans in the area. I feel I speak for all the Veterans in our area when I say that we feel much appreciated, especially on Veterans Day when a large number of local restaurants open their doors and provide a free meal for us. Thank you again and God Bless all of our Veterans and their families.

Thanksgiving

As I let this flow from my heart,

we are in Thanksgiving season.

This time of year we celebrate

in various ways and reasons.

The Bible commands to give thanks

in everything, yes, everything.

In God's will, we possess joy in

what we do, where we are going.

Years ago, most churches were filled

with hearts of gratitude to sing.

The songs, filled with thankfulness

touched souls bringing a special ring.

There's something different these days.

Families no longer sit at the table for a scrumptious meal.

Many run off, this way and that.

Families have drifted away.

By ignoring old traditions.

Grandma and Grandpa, forgotten,

sit home, praying for their children.

Giving thanks, for Heaven's blessings

praise overflows in Jesus' love.

Take time day after day to show

fervant thanks for grace from above.

By Lois Wiederhoeft,

Peshtigo



To the Editor:

We would like to thank the anonymous donor, Coleman Pound Lions, Lioness, and local restaurants who treated the military personnel to a complementary meal on Veterans Day. I know all the veterans appreciated it very much.

Coleman/Pound Legion Member



Dear Editor:

Government officials have to make tough decisions, and they are often privy to information that the general public is not; therefore, decisions may actually be good but not make sense. I'm hoping that's the case with the lowering of Dave Zahn's salary"because at first glance it appears the City Council is sabotaging any sense of appreciation, collaboration, and camaraderie in our city government. Concern for the bottom line is important, but it is not more so than people and relationships. I submit that allowing over four hours a week overtime because of a good work ethic and an attitude of service (as Mr. Zahn puts in now) is much more cost-effective for the city than punishing him financially if he doesn't.

Julie Muenster,

Peshtigo
