From our readers

Dear Editor:

Thank you for being an excellent source for governmental news for Marinette County. As posted in your newspaper; an informational meeting was held Feb. 22, at 6:30 at The Town of Stephenson's Town Hall concerning the new proposed /Town Road Protection Ordinance/. All heavy equipment, construction and logging operators were invited to attend.

The purpose of this meeting was to explain the Town's new road protection practices to prevent damage to public roads, graded ditches, roadsides from heavy equipment and machinery from construction, farming and logging practices.

The meeting was held to inform all Town residents that the below requirements are being considered for a period of 1 year before enacting the new /Town Road Protection Ordinance./

1. All heavy truck operators/companies must call into the Public Works Department 2 weeks before operations are to begin. This time frame gives the Public Works time to inspect the proposed entrance and exit of the driveway as a preventive measure; to protect the integrity and safety of Town roads.

2. Calls are requested for projects involving frequent trips from one specific location on Town roads, including but not limited to construction of ponds and logging operations. If Operators do not call they can be held liable for damage to roads.

3. If the Town Board determines correction to the driveway is necessary to satisfy this request, the Town Board can require corrections to be made. The cost of such repairs, corrections, restoration or removal will be charged to the property owner as provided in 86.02 of the Wisconsin Statutes.

4. This request applies to all driveways, including residential, open space, agricultural, commercial industrial, temporary and field driveways, accessing town roads, which occur or are proposed to occur in the Town of Stephenson, Marinette County.

These requests are very minimal and are necessary for the protection of our roads. The Town has 211 miles of roads and the cost of road repair is increasing; one mile of road can cost up to $200,000. This directive is a prevention measure to keep road repair cost down and to protect the integrity of the Town roads.

Rick Kikulski,

Supervisor, Chairman of Road Committee,

Town of Stephenson



Letter to Editor:

Re: An Open Letter to "Chairperson" Martha Laning and Other Wisconsin Democrats

I'm writing to suggest that you encourage some of the leaders and others in your party to control or shut their mouths.

I have watched Jeff Sessions over the years, and I believe he is a better man than ANY Democrat in ANY public office at this time. So I was not pleased when the Attorney General announced on March 2 that he would recuse himself from investigations into the 2016 campaign. He did so in response to Democrat shrieking about a nonissue, when he should have told you people to take a long walk off a short dock.

After Sessions announced he would recuse himself, Democrats continued to squeal for his resignation.

I noticed, "Chairperson" Martha Laning, that you were elected on June 5, 2015. That was three weeks before the Supreme Court delivered the Obergefell vs. Hodges decision sanctioning homosexual marriage for the entire country.

You probably do not remember it"most Americans dismissed that Court decision by the following weekend. You probably also do not remember that Justices Kagan and Ginsburg had been marrying homosexuals before the Obergefell hearing; and neither had the integrity or character to recuse themselves. They sat through that farce of a hearing, posing as objective and unbiased participants who would spend many hours pondering the arguments before deciding whether the entire country should sanction homosexual marriages like the ones they had been performing.

I do not remember one Democrat hypocrite squealing about the need for either Justice to recuse herself, in what I think will prove to be the first or second most consequential Supreme Court decision in my lifetime. But there was plenty of squealing about the need for Sessions to recuse himself when he had done absolutely NOTHING of any consequence.

As an aside, the enforcement as law of the opinion of five unelected lawyers on the Court in Obergefell will prove consequential in forcing anyone who does not believe that homosexual marriage is right, to sanction it. But the new "constitutional right" defined in Obergefell will also be enforced by requiring women who use any public facilities including bathrooms, locker rooms and showers; to share them with men who want to play women, men who believe they would be happier if they were women, or men who want to see women without their clothes on. This right will be enforced by requiring girls in government schools to be violated in the same manner by boys who want to play girls, believe they would be happier if they were girls, or really want to see girls without their clothes on.

I do remember some of the hearings for Judge Robert Bork. Bork was an intellectual giant who would have served our county very well as a SCOTUS justice. But he came under such abuse from some of the Democrats in the Congress at that time (Leahy, Gore, Daschle, and their ilk) that his treatment led to adding the term "bork" to our lexicon.

So I'm simply going to warn Democrats that you had better be civil at the Gorsuch hearings, and you had better treat that man with some respect. That isn't asking much for grown-ups; but I know how difficult it can be for many Democrats, particularly the younger squealers, to manage just a little bit of respect for anything.

Democrats seem to think everyone else in this country is going to tolerate your squealing and your behavior for the next eight years while you do everything you can to obstruct Trump. I'm not; and I'm not alone in that either.

Trump was duly elected President. The behavior of some Democrats is approaching sedition. While you have the First Amendment right to free speech that you make every effort to deny to anyone else who wants to say something you don't agree with, Democrats may soon find that free speech can be costly sometimes.

I have had enough of some of the Democrats' treatment of the First Lady. I think Mrs. Trump is married to a man who can be boorish and clownish at times. But she is the First Lady, and therefore is entitled to some respect.

The women around Trump are beautiful; and they are mothers. That is why they are hated by many of the feral feminists in the Democrat party.

Celebrity Chelsea Handler, one of the more foul-mouthed Democrat Clinton supporters, described Mrs. Trump as barely able to speak English the other day. I understand Mrs. Trump speaks five languages.

I think the previous Democrat First Lady only spoke English. Moreover, nearly every time I heard that woman speak for eight long years, her English was mean and angry, condescending, arrogant, and snide. I can handle Mrs. Trump's English because I have always found that she only has pleasant or nice things to say.

If Trump was a Democrat, there would not be enough paper in this country for all the stories and articles the progressive media whores would write comparing the new First Lady to Jacqueline Kennedy. For younger readers, she was the wife of Democrat John F. Kennedy, and there was this whole Camelot thing in America before even I was born.

Mrs. Kennedy was known for her beauty in those days. The behavior of some of the men around her was also troubling. It was said her husband cheated on her repeatedly; and her drunk, lecherous, brother-in-law (another Democrat icon) was said to have driven his car into a river where he left it to sink with a poor young woman in it.

I still remember things like that.

I'm also going to remember how you people behaved, and the things you said during and after the Trump election; and I'm not the only one who will.

Terry A. Larson,

Communications Director,



Letter to Editor:

I grew up in Milwaukee. Now I won't go there with all the violence. I moved to Pound and raised five kids in Coleman Schools. I was in a restaurant in Coleman Sunday and it really impressed me how people care about one another. The restaurant was doing a spaghetti meal for a child that needed surgery. Across from me was a woman that is getting cancer treatments. Everyone stopped to wish her well.

If everyone would stop protesting everything and started caring about their neighbor, we'd have a better country. Also two 13-year old girls were on the news, one was making cupcakes to raise money for needy families. Another girl made blankets for veterans. Maybe we all need to look around instead of shooting each other. There are churches around that could use volunteers.

Lonnie Pillath,

Pound
