Letter to Editor:

Three cheers for the DePere City Council for passing a transgender non-discrimination ordinance.

There are well over 100 Christian denominations in America, each with its own interpretation of the Bible and each proclaiming that they alone are correctly teaching the Christian message.

Many Christian preachers spend inordinate time denigrating other Christian Denominations biblical beliefs in order to validate their own. Turn on TV and watch Jimmy Swaggert run down main line Protestant Denominations and the Catholic Church.

In 1967 interracial marriage was prohibited in the state of Virginia. The Evangelicals said the Bible told them so.

President Jimmy Carter, our most religious president, quit the Southern Baptist Convention over their biblical teaching about the role of women.

Reverent Matt Baye of Hope Lutheran Church indicates that being transgender is a manifestation of sin. The Bible told him so.

If all the Christian Denominations agreed on the interpretation what the Bible says, then we should have only one Christian Denomination.

The Ten Commandments are more generally agreed on by most Christians. Thou shall not covet thy neighbors wife. Thou shall not commit adultery.

With50% divorce rate among heterosexuals in our society, one would think our Christian Clergy would preach about those two commandments. There are two state where adultery is a felony crime. Wisconsin and Oklahoma. Can't do that! Church attendance would drop and collection would shrink.

Dear Editor:

During the 2017 Christmas season the St. Joseph Conference of the Society of St Vincent de Paul witnessed wonderful and gracious financial and gift bearing benefactors, as well as many volunteer organizers and shoppers as we provided 305 children, ages 0 to 18 years with Christmas gifts. 

Each child received tennis shoes or winter boots, shirt, pants, winter coat as well as many of their Santa Wish items plus extra toys, books, puzzles, hats and mittens, hygiene products, and family games.  Each of the 130 Marinette and Peshtigo families also received a $25.00 gift card to a local grocery stores.

We are grateful for the financial and gift support of the Holy Family Parish parishioners including their Altar Society, Knights of Columbus and St Mary Parish, Peshtigo and SS Joseph and Edward Parish, Walsh; Marinette and Peshtigo organizations, agencies, institutions, merchants and businesses who graciously adopted a child or donated toys, games, certificates or made substantial financial gifts.

Our two largest adopting companies this year were Johnson Controls  (formerly Tyco Fire Protection Products/Ansul) and Aurora Bay Area Medical Center.

Marinette City Hall, provided many of the hygiene products for the baskets; these items cannot be purchased with food stamps and the families were grateful.

St Joseph Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is grateful also to the many area volunteers who made Santa's workshop such a loving and warm environment.  God's love was flowing into their careful selections made for children's Christmas basket.  Special Thanks to volunteer chair, Linda Wilke and daily volunteers, Jane Heath and Geri Hall who joined our Christmas Basket Vincentian Team. 

Thanks also to the drivers and families that joyfully delivered the presents " the bearers of good tidings to those unable to get out due to the snow storm.

Lastly, our sincere thanks to the recipient families, who through their joy-filled faces, showed the gratefulness and blessings they felt in receiving the gifts as well as through their messages to the volunteers and their written thank you notes of Christmas cheer, joy and thanksgiving.

It takes a lot of time, love, prayer and energy to provide this Christmas program to those families in need. Blessings to all who made this happen for our families!

Jeanne Harper,

Secretary St. Joseph SSVdP Conference,

Holy Family Parish



Editor:

Hello, my name is Steven Urbaniak. I owned the horse that was next to Menard's. I'm looking for some help. I was gone for awhile and people were taking care of my horse, one of the persons took it upon themselves to talk to people and have the horse removed when they became ill. There were other people that were willing to take care of the horse till my return. The horse was removed from my property without the permission from either me or my mother. The police have been investigating the theft of the horse as larceny and trying to recover the horse since October.

All I want is my horse returned. If the police find the horse or it is not returned by the end of January, all persons involved in the removal, transportation and housing of the stolen horse will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Come February all names that have been given to me will be called in to civil court and the costs of the legal actions and the replacement of the horse will be placed upon any deemed by the court as full or partially responsible. There is a reward for anybody with information for the prosecution of any individuals and the return of the horse. Anyone with information can call Marinette Police Department, in care of Officer Hicks, badge #866 Report 17-1737.

Thank you.

Steven Urbaniak



Dear Editor:

I encourage all that own properties, have children or grandchildren in this area to attend the Public Hearing in regards to the Wetland Permit/Back Forty Project and voice your concerns at Stephenson High School at 6 pm on Jan. 23.  Even if you only attend, it will be a very informational time.

The MDEQ has shown its lack of integrity with the Flint situation, which has not yet been fully remedied.  Well, our Superfund does not exist for Menominee County or the 40,000 people that rely on drinking water from the Menominee River and Lake Michigan. Akilla can give no guarantees that something disastrous won't happen. David Anderson of Aquila cannot assure us of that, yet says they can put it back the way it was. Interesting how all of you present yourselves in the realm of God. You can take away and recreate what God has made.  How interesting. Yet, you cannot give a guarantee that nothing bad will happen. This is 21st Century mining, yet you still plan to use cyanide to process this ore.

We as citizens need to take hold of this situation and protect our property values that WILL decline by at least 40% and our clean drinking water. Water is the #1 need of humans and all creation to survive.  NO WATER = NO LIFE!   We think we are poor now, just wait until they get done with us. Leave us in an undesirable area with low property values, mining degradation of ground and river water and drawn down of our water tables. Does anyone know what that will look like?

Did you know that if Blastomycosis spores are disturbed they can be carried airborne for 62 miles? What of our dams that have reached their lifespans? What about the rising water levels?

This mining will not be tolerated. Your endeavor will fail.  We will not stop and we will not back down. Our lives are at stake. Our values are higher than greed and money!  Our health and our families are our greatest treasures.  Don't be an angry bird " Save The Menominee River!

Polly Hubbard

 

Dear Editor:

Speaking in opposition of the risk of further pollution to the Menominee River by the proposed Back Forty Mine:

First of all, if you have heard anything that implies the mine is inevitable because the proposed mining company (Aquila) has received three of the four necessary permits, that is not exactly true. The three permits are conditional. Aquila has yet to meet all of the necessary conditions for the permits to be valid. The risk of pollution is nearly 100% simply because every mine of this type has polluted (100%). This type of mining has been banned in many countries and states because of the damage to the environment. And the pollution effects are believed permanent. It pollutes forever, and I believe the pollution (cyanide, arsenic, etc.) is almost impossible to remove. We have already spent tens of millions of taxpayer dollars on cleaning up the mouth of the Menominee, and the work is nowhere near complete.

Also, because of the sandy soil on an near, the proposed mine site there is a significant likelihood that the Shakey Lakes could be drained. Wow, what a place of natural beauty and tourist site to put at risk. The proposed mine pit will be over 700 feet deep and just 150 feet, yes feet, from the Menominee River.

In my opinion the job argument is pretty weak. As all of you know, if you can pass a urine test, you can get a job in Marinette and Menominee counties. The open pit mine is estimated to be in operation for 8 years, hardly a career job opportunity. Aquila will likely bring in all technical employees, so these will be relatively low paying jobs.

Additionally, if Menominee County gets the royalties, what is the effect on property values and loss of property tax revenues.

And, Aquila plans to file for an addendum to the permits to mine UNDER the river, because apparently that's where the majority of the gold is found.

What's the risk to our children, grandchildren and future generations just so a few millionaires in Canada can get a little richer.

Your participation matters! Join the protest marches Jan. 20 (Stephenson Island, Marinette) and Jan. 21 (Stephenson, MI), and the meeting in Stephenson, MI Jan. 23 at 6 p.m. at the high school.

Sidney A. Konell
