"Whenever I See a Soldier"

Whenever I see a soldier

No matter where it be,

I give my salutation

For they mean so much to me.

They're not the kids we used to know

In store, at desk or plow,

They're defenders of our faith

They're in the service now.

They keep Old Glory flying

On land and air and sea,

They live to make our home secure

They die to keep us free.



Poem in program of Kalbes-Seewald American Legion Post 280 Memorial Day service on Monday, May 29.





Editor:

I will again try to gain the attention of State Assembly Rep. John Nygren, and ask him for a public statement about his reluctance to have mud flaps on dump trucks.

Not everyone is a junkie, but the greater part of the citizens ride in automobiles. It appears our safety is no concern to you, John.

Your interest about opioid abuse and addiction is a personal matter, but that shouldn't cloud your mind to the safety of the motoring public.

You had no problem on helping yourself and legislative pals in giving yourselves a raise for a part time job.

"Public office is the last refuge of a scoundrel," Boles Penrose.

Respectfully,

Robert Davis,

Marinette

Re: Memorial Day



The Menominee American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Unit 146 would like to take this time to reflect with the community that on Memorial Day, and throughout the year we remember those who died while serving in America's Armed Forces.

Memorial Day was originally created to honor Union soldiers who died while serving in the Civil War. The southern states did not observe Memorial Day until after World War I, when the holiday was expanded to include service members from all wars.

In 1868, General John A. Logan, the Commander-in-Chief of a Union veteran's group, the Grand Army of the Republic, issued a decree calling for May 30 to be a national day to pay tribute to individuals who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service.

The National Moment of Remembrance Act passed by Congress, and signed by U. S. President Clinton in 2000, declares 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for Americans in an act of symbolic unity, share a moment of silence in honor of the men and women of the United States who died in the pursuit of freedom and peace.

Although things have changed since the ALA was founded in 1919, the one thing that remains the same is members' commitment to answer the call to help a veteran in need, and honor all veterans, military, and family who serve. The ALA members exemplify Service not Self through countless volunteer hours, programs, conferences, and with an increased presence in Washington, D. C. Members are giving a voice to veterans.

The ALA promotes Americanism, and encourages love of country, and to display pride, and respect toward the United States American flag. In addition, we encourage patriotism, and support of the Constitution of the United States, the military, and to enjoy the freedom we live in from the sacrifices of our veterans.

Connie Kewley

Public Relations chairman

ALA Unit 146



Editor:

While the newspaper is not necessarily a good place to discuss Biblical theology, this may be the exception.

Last week an article appeared in the Times stating baptism is necessary for salvation. The first thing that came to mind was the tired old theory that Christ's death on the cross was not sufficient for an individual's eternal salvation. This thought, I would assume, stems from the notion...man is not all bad and we can contribute to our salvation. This is so wrong, it is Christ's death and resurrection plus NOTHING. ... "All our righteousness is as filthy rags..." Isaiah 64:6. All man can contribute to their eternity is sin and death.

The reason for baptism is to show the person's repentance and faith in the Lord's finished work. It is a sign to all that life has changed its direction, If we add to Christ's work, where do we stop? Baptism, communion penitence, church attendance, contributions...WHERE? Man has been adding rules for attaining salvation (Jesus FINISHED work) for centuries, so this is nothing new. What can sinful man contribute to the Holy God's giving of His life to undeserving man? "He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit." Titus 3:5.

Putting it simply, we recognize that we are sinners destined for hell. We know we can't save ourselves and we reach out in repentance to Jesus Christ to save us. He sees our faith and our penalty is paid, PERIOD. We can't add anything. "Therefore, repent and return so that your sins may be wiped away." Acts 13:9.

If we don't accept the scriptures then we have to worry about much. Do we baptize in the name of Jesus, or the Father, Son and Holy Ghost and so on? We are constantly robbed of the peace Christ offered. "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, nor let it be fearful." John 14:27.

"Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13. If this is not believed then what do we do with the millions of people who accepted Christ with no opportunity to be baptized? They sincerely cried out to God; are we to believe He will turn them away because they were not baptized or were baptized in the wrong way or with the wrong words? Do not add burden and complicate God's word and His FINISHED work.

Faith requires faith and nothing else. "For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the GIFT of God; not as a result of works so that no one may boast." Ephesians 2:8-9.

Re: Successful Food Drive



We did it again. Letter carriers at the Crivitz and Wausaukee Post Offices along with postal employees and local volunteers teamed up to stamp out hunger in the community.

I want to thank everyone who helped make this year's Food Drive a success. It could not have been done without you.

Across the country, the Food Drive, held in cooperation with the Postal Service, resulted in millions of pounds of non-perishable food collected and distributed to deserving charities nationwide.

Closer to home, the Crivitz and Wausaukee carriers collected 5,357.11 pounds of food from generous donations left at mailboxes, which were then delivered to local community food pantries.

For 25 years our local community has come together for this important event to help make it successful. This clearly shows the generosity of everyone involved with the project, people who make a difference in other people's lives.

Debra Wagner,

Crivitz Postmaster
