From our readers

Editor:

I am writing you this letter about a proposal concerning the old jail on Ella Ct. and about how it can be used to make a continuing flow of income for the city of Marinette and create some new jobs for the citizens.

It had been stated in the paper that there was a city council meeting and it came up if the old jail should be torn down or up graded and the different costs were stated. One thing that should be put into perspective is that the old jail was built with extra supporting and foundation so that at a time in the future a third floor could be added if needed.

Presently the Wisconsin Department of Corrections has been having a problem with the prison system's over-population. They have been sending inmates to Fond du Lac and Oneida jail for short term housing until room has been made for them within the system. Dodge Correctional Institution has been dealing with overcrowding and is trying to process to inmates as fast as they can. Dodge is the only unit that staffs the male population. They can only process inmates as fast as room permits and their population is growing faster than they have room for inmates. This has been causing an increase in the population of the State of Wisconsin jails waiting for transport of their inmates. A lot of the overcrowding in the jails and prisons is because there are people on probation being revoked and then being sent to jail and then maybe also prison.

Marinette could reopen the jail for the purpose of housing the State of Wisconsin's inmates and then be paid by the state to temporary house their inmates. The city could then add the third floor and house Marinette's juvenile offenders instead of having to pay for transportation to Green Bay and house them there. Marinette could even house the Huber inmates in the old jail also. This would create more room at the new jail for the increase of offenders and centralize the Huber inmates for better transportation options.

I just thought this could be a better option than having to pay someone to tear down the building that the taxpayers had paid extra to make it stronger for a third floor just to have an empty lot that doesn't create any jobs or monetary income for the city. Even if the second floor was just used for the juvenile offenders and Huber inmates it could save money and create the needed space within the jail and save money by keeping our juvenile offenders local. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Turn Back the Hands of Time

Every community has a story to tell, and the better we tell it. the more it enriches our lives.  Imagination and good story telling are inspirable, and the past few decades have cheated many folk of that imagination.  The constant access to outside events, leaves no time to reflect back to yesteryear.

That is why Historical Societies are more than a collection of memorabilia.  They are a springboard  for us to turn back the hands of time.  They give meaning beyond the T.V.,  the Tweets, the face book, and other electronic mind effecting devices. 

Yes, on March 16th the Suring Area Historical Society met at the Suring Village Hall.  The reports were given, the agenda items discussed, and then speaker for the evening, Russel Brock, turned back the hands of time on the Brock family.  They were a typical Immigrant family of the 1800's, but Russel's caudate comments and self deprecating humor sent imaginations into gear.  The hardships were real, the sorrows were real, but  the resilient character of yesteryear families triumphed.

Enrichment also comes in the small group conversations that are part of all Historical Societies.  What gives added credence to these conversations is the validity of gathered material.

The Big conversation for our Society this year, is the Chicago Northwestern, Green Bay to Leona R.R. Line, that gave birth to Suring.  Turn Back the Hands of Time 100 years, as you stand on the Suring Depot platform. Hear the rumble as the train approached & the blast up of the steam whistle, to clear the main street crossing; feel the heat of the coal fired locomotive; smell the smoke as it burns your eyes; watch the activity as freight is unloaded off unto the platform and a young man joyfully greets his parents.  Than stand in silence as the train moves on, waving to the conductor and hearing the mournful whistle, telling you that it is all over.  Imagination meets reality. 

We so very much want railroad enthusiasts to share that enthusiasm in  helping us build a display.  This is to inform the folk of the area, especially the students, of what great import the railroad has. Contact Richard Nelson 920-855-2873 or Duane Wardecke 920-842-4085.

Stop by the Suring Area Library & enjoy the Railroading Showcase.

Thank you,

Helen Heimerl, Sec.

SAHS

Re: Rec Center Name

Again, big business money talks.

I, personally, think it's sad that Bay Area/Aurora must "brand" our new Rec Center with their names in order for them to be monetary contributors. What's wrong with just "Community Rec Center"? Aren't Bay Area/Aurora just a part of the Marinette community? The sign makes it appear that they alone built the Rec Center. What about all the little people who helped to make it happen?

"Three Crosses"

We see three crosses

On Calvary's Hill,

The Savior's, the saint's

And the sinners by will.

The Savior was spotless

No Sin had He,

The saint was a sinner,

Who asked God's Mercy.

But the sinner rejected

Christ's Salvation free,

Now He's doomed forever

Through eternity.

So saint or sinner,

Which will you be?

Jesus waits with arms open,

Saying come unto Me.



"Happy Easter"

This Sunday Is Easter

What a Glorious Thrill.

The Resurrection of Our Savior

Who Died on Calvary's Hill.

He's No Longer Dead,

He's The savior of Man.

Because He Arose,

We Too Shall Rise Again.

So If You Want This Savior,

And Eternal Life Today,

Just Open Up Your Hearts Door,

He's The Life, The Truth, The Way.

Dear Editor:

The Wisconsin newspaper industry would like to thank the members of the state legislature for removing language from the proposed state budget that would have eliminated the newspaper publication of many local government public notices.

By keeping public notices in newspapers the members of the legislature defended the public's right to know and they are to be commended for doing so.

Thanks also go out to our many readers who called their legislator and made their voices heard. The removal of this misguided provision from the budget was evidence that our legislators are listening and we are grateful for that.

The budget proposal would have eliminated more than 50 public notices, including ordinances, resolutions, budget summaries, meeting minutes and financial reports. Local governments would have been allowed to post these notices on government websites instead of publishing them in the local newspaper. The removal of newspaper publication would have done away with the important system of check and balance that ensures government and the courts have provided legally required notice to the affected public.

Newspapers remain the trusted vehicle used by every state in the nation for notifying the public of the activities of the government and the courts both in print and online. Wisconsin is arguably one of the leading states in the nation when it comes to the technology applied to the tracking of every public notice published by a governmental entity.

In addition to print, the Wisconsin newspaper industry provides online publication and archiving of all Wisconsin public notices. In 2005 the Wisconsin newspaper industry launched WisconsinPublicNotices.org, a comprehensive, searchable public notice website. The website is available at no cost to all citizens of the State of Wisconsin offering direct links to public notices that were first published in Wisconsin newspapers. Every public notice from every newspaper published since 2005 can be found on the newspaper industry website in an easy-to-use, searchable platform.

I was asked recently why local newspapers are still successful. I believe the answer lies int he investments we make in our communities. Our dedicated staff members work hard to become experts on the people and markets they serve. Newspapers provide access to local news and information at a level that remains unmatched by any other media outlet.

Newspapers continue to be vitally important to the fabric of our country, particularly in rural communities where we are a primary voice of the people. We are pleased that the members of the legislature recognize the important role that newspapers play in keeping the public informed of the actions of state and local government.

Sincerely,

John D. Ingebritsen

President, Wisconsin Newspaper Association Board of Directors
