Issue Date: February 14, 2018

Letter to Editor:

I would like to express a heartfelt "Thank You" to our wonderful community.

"Cabin Fever Night" was held at Riverside Golf Club on Saturday, Feb. 3rd as a fundraiser for St. Thomas Aquinas Academy. It was a wonderful, relaxing evening and we appreciate the support of all who helped to sponsor and those who attended this event. The dinner was delicious, and the musical entertainment with Alexis Rae warmed a snowy night.

We had wonderful donations for door prizes from area merchants and private individuals. A special thank you goes to Riverside Golf Club, The R& S Saddle Saloon, The Goose and the Gander Finery, The PC Guys, Dan and Tim's Riverside, the Beaver Saloon, and Friends of the Academy for their contributions.

This was the first time that the school has hosted this event and we look forward to shaking off the winter again next year. Please come and join us at the 36th Annual Auction on Sunday, March 18th at St. Thomas Aquinas Academy as we happily celebrate over 140 years of Catholic education in Northeast Wisconsin.

Kathy Denby,

St. Thomas Aquinas Academy

Development Coordinator





Dear Editor

The week of Feb. 11-17 is designated National Salute to Veteran Patients Week. This week, VA facilities across the Nation are honoring these men and women we proudly care for and serve. Men and women who have given more than most to protect and preserve all we hold dear as Americans.

Each of us who are privileged to live in this Nation has a special place in our hearts for these defenders of freedom. That is why VA takes time during the week of Valentine's Day to encourage our community to express affection and respect for those we admire.

The employees and volunteers at the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center and its seven Community Based Outpatient Clinics across the Upper Peninsula and northern Wisconsin salute the more than 20,000 Veterans we serve, American heroes who have paid and continue to pay the price of freedom.  

There are no words that can adequately express what their sacrifices have meant to the nation. However, we can take time to express our personal thanks and appreciation to them. Please take time this week to thank a Veteran for his or her service and sacrifice!

I also invite anyone in the community who desire to put their appreciation into action to consider becoming a volunteer at our medical center or as a van driver for our Veterans Transportation Network transporting Veterans to and from their appointments at the Iron Mountain VA Medical Center. If you are interested, please call our Voluntary Service office at 800-215-8262, extension 32780, or check out www.ironmountain.va.gov/giving or www.volunteer.va.gov.

Sincerely,

James W. Rice     

Medical Center Director              



Letter to Editor:

Re: Trump, Protests, and our Country Cousin

I response to the Feb. 7, 2018 Country Cousin article, I should like to point out what I see as obvious errors in the "Unpatriotic Generation" segment. First it should be noted that the protests were not about the loss of Hilary Clinton, it was about the victory of Donald Trump, who was seen by many as unfit for the office (and with good reasons). Incidentally, Donald did not get the majority of votes cast. Hilary won that by over 3 million votes. As for the remarks for the female Olympic athlete who intends not to go to the White House if invited; did you not notice the over 150 girls and women Olympic athletes who charged the male US Olympic doctor with sexual abuse? It was heart breaking and wrenching to listen to their stories. Whoa re they to turn to for justice and setting things right, the guy accused of numerous sexual misconducts, including a "Stormy Affair" while his wife was giving birth. Of course, he denies these allegations, but that's pretty easy to do. Notice also, that none of the women he was going to sue after the election never seemed to happen, why?

Furthermore, what's this nonsense about "... these liberals (and the professors who teach them) (don't) understand...is an insult to the USA?" "Understanding" is what professors do, that is, that's what teaching is about, raising understanding to a higher level. So is our Country Cousin opposed to education? That's not good! And can she discount the 27 MDs and PhD professors who together wrote the book "The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump" as more lost cause, over educated liberals? In your spare time, kindly look up the definition of "liberal" in a reliable dictionary. It is actually quite flattering.

Dear Editor:

Thank everyon for your donations to the Richard Schmidt Memorial Vintage Sled Ride at Thunder Lake Lodge on Feb. 27.

The Town of Stephenson Fire Department Auxiliary appreciates your contribution to making this event successful with donations that were used for General Raffles and Bucket Raffles.

Our firefighters respond 24/7 to structure fires, wildland fires, storm damage on roads and traffic accidents, in an effort to help protect people and property in the Town of Stephenson.

The proceeds from the fund raiser will go toward Department and Firefighter supplies and equipment. Items purchased in the past include ice rescue equipment, a new tanker truck and replacement gear for firefighters.

We want to sincerely thank Lee Schmidt and the staff at Thunder Lake Lodge for arranging this event to benefit the Fire Department Auxiliary, and your support through donations to the event.

Sincerely,

Jim Stradal,

Fire Chief



Letter to Editor:

M&M Thunder Hockey fills local hotel rooms!

The Marinette & Menominee Area Youth Hockey Association continues to fill hotel rooms in the twin cities with little fanfare in the media. This year alone over 800 hotel rooms will have been filled by youth ice hockey teams from all over Wisconsin and Michigan. The majority of the rooms are occupied by both players and family members during tournament weekends with the games being played at the Marinette Civic Center.

A typical youth ice hockey tournament brings approximately 100 -140 players and family to the area and typically includes a two-night stay at a local hotel. The players and their families usually arrive on Friday afternoon and depart on Sunday. Between games, many of the players and family members are visiting local retail stores and restaurants while waiting for their next game.

Who benefits? Local hotels and restaurants, the City of Marinette which collects the room tax money and Marinette County which gets the sales tax revenue.

Brian Swenson



"Love Is"

Love is serving God

In your own special way.

Doing deeds of kindness

To brighten someones day.

It tells them that God loves them,

And That you love them too.

Giving them strength and courage,

To face the things they're going through.

It isn't always something large

That means the most to others,

It's a smile, or hug, a helping hand,

It's being an extra sister or brother.

So call a lonely person...

Send a small gift or loving card.

Do a little something

That for them may be too hard.

You'll find that love is something

That's more precious each day your live.

For you'll get back more blessing

Than you could ever give.



Joyce Bedora,

Krakow, formerly of Peshtigo
