Dear Editor:

Tourism is an important driver of the Marinette County economy.

The Tourism Marketing agreement between Marinette County and the City of Marinette is working well for both parties. The County had a Tourism department that was eliminated because of a lack of results. The County and the City of Marinette felt there was a better way. In order to mitigate the risk and cost and explore the concept, a contract between them was signed.

Melissa Ebsch, Marketing/Tourism Director for the City of Marinette, has shown the true potential of successful Tourism marketing. Melisa has brought energy, creativity, enthusiasm, dedication and results to the Tourism marketing position for the entire County. In a short time, she has done a phenomenal job as measured by her clients in the County and those of us who have been following her closely.

Since mid-April, Melissa has started from scratch in building a marketing tourism organization. She has met with at least 7 communities in Marinette County to identify their needs, wants and suggestions on how they would like to be marketed. She has met with Travel Wisconsin to put together a show on Marinette County waterfalls on TV that appeared earlier this fall. She posts Marinette County events on their state website. Melissa also has met with various recreational and civic groups throughout the County to gain their input on marketing and assemble materials and maps for the visitors guide. These are just some examples of the work she is doing to market tourism in Marinette County.

Those who practice the politics of division would have you believe that we will do better as individual entities. History has shown that is not true. Together we are able to develop a comprehensive strategy that encompasses the uniqueness of the regions within our county. We can apply greater financial resources to reach a broader audience at a much lower cost and greater effectiveness of message.

There are a few who criticize the County working with the City of Marinette. They discount that the taxpayers in the City also pay County taxes and, somehow, should be excluded from gaining any operating or financial benefits. The City of Marinette pays for the information technology and human resources services which they utilize. City of Marinette taxpayers pay for their own police force and also pay taxes for the County Sheriff. It should be the mission of government and elected officials to reduce taxes wherever possible and not create artificial barriers to efficiency.

We should continue working together to improve and expand Tourism marketing in Marinette County.

Rick Polzin,

Marinette County Board Supervisor " District 29

Dear Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of Stephenson Area Public Schools to thank the M&M Area Community Foundation for their leadership in the Clean Energy Grant Initiative. Through the leadership of Paula Gruszynski and her staff this grant has provided professional development regarding Clean Energy to members of our teaching staff. The professional development of our teachers has increased the opportunities and learning experiences for our students today and for many years to come.

An additional partner for our project with the M&M Area Community Foundation has been the City of Stephenson and the City of Stephenson Energy Optimizing Program Incentive. Through the work of these two partners, Stephenson Area Public Schools will install over Christmas Break, new LED Exit Lights and upgrade many hallway lights with energy efficient LED Lighting. We thank the Community Foundation for funding these projects.

We would also like to thank the C.S. Mott Foundation for their generous donation to the Community Foundation thus allowing these opportunities to become reality. Through the work, commitment and dedication of the C.S. Mott Foundation, the M&M Area Community Foundation and the City of Stephenson our students have gained better opportunities both academically and in their physical surroundings.

THANK YOU!!!!!

Ron Kraft,

Superintendent Stephenson Schools



To the Editor:

The holiday, as some say, season, is upon us with decorations, bright lights, gift giving and the entire hodgepodge of culture that accompanies it. Some embrace the idea that this is a strictly Judeo-Christian observance, while others maintain a more secular view and embrace an orientation not tethered to particular faiths, or, as is their right,  to no faith at all. Whatever your view, let's try to keep in mind a certain spirit-that of giving, acceptance, inclusion, caring, and assistance to those less fortunate and in need. Such are the principals of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism or any of the major faiths, or, to any individual or group committed to goodwill and benevolence toward others.

Part of the American experiment has to do with acceptance of and respect for the right of all peoples to worship as they please, to adhere to the faith of their choice, or again, to adhere to none at all. The experiment certainly has fallen and continues to fall short at times, but if we as a people continue our efforts toward the goal of inclusion then indeed we are doing the right thing, are we not? As the old coach Mike Ditka once stated, "You never really lose until you stop trying".

Whether your observances are centered about Christmas, Diwali, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Vesak, or that of another faith, or no faith, we can all contribute to the spirit of caring and support for all, simply by our words and actions. Visit the sick, lonely and those otherwise isolated; contribute financial support, time, or goods to a charity; help those in financial need.

So, let's make it a "December to Remember" with greetings and goodwill: In Buddhism, (A silent bow); As-Salaam-Alaikum, (Islam) "Peace be unto you" Namaste-(Hindu) "I bow to the divine in you".; Shalom-(Judaism) "Peace" "The Lord be with you" ; (Christian); "Have a good day" (Secular).

Best wishes to all now and for the New Year! Peace!

Jeff Churchill,

Amberg



Dear Editor:

Why is There so Much Alzheimer's?

A study just published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences identifies fluoride as a possible cause or contributing factor in Alzheimer's. According to researchers with expertise in biochemistry and nutrition, fluoride "easily crosses the blood-brain barrier" [where it] affects cellular energy metabolism, synthesis of inflammatory factors, neurotransmitter metabolism, microglial activation, and the expression of proteins involved in neuronal maturation."

In October, the University of Toronto published a study finding an association between concentrations of fluoride in urine of pregnant women with ADHD in their children. These findings are consistent with an earlier 2017 study that found pregnant women with fluoride doses consistent with doses in fluoridated communities had children with lower IQs.

Many researchers have identified multiple mechanisms by which fluoride contributes to neurological disability and disease. Children are most vulnerable to learning disabilities and seniors are most vulnerable to degenerative conditions like dementia.

WI Department of Health Services and Wisconsin Dental Association are amping up their promotions of fluoride in drinking water with self-important fluoride lobbyists like Johnny Johnson. They are ignoring actual scientists who have found evidence of harm. Perhaps they've already suffered too much brain damage. For all our sakes, I hope not.

Brenda Staudenmaier,
