From our readers

Issue Date: December 26, 2018

Dear Editor:

The Crivitz Lions Club would like to thank Dr. Doug Morrison of Crivitz Veterinary Clinic for allowing the club to store wheel chairs, walkers, and other items that are available for use from the Lions for anyone in need of them at no cost to the person.  He has provided this service during the time he has practiced at the present location. We learned that Dr. Morrison will soon retire and his facility will be continued by Dr. Adam Gauthier, a native of Crivitz.  We are very grateful for Dr. Morrison providing the space needed for the items so that they might be readily available for anyone in need.  We wish him well in his retirement.

Craig Parks,

Crivitz Lions President



Letter to Editor:

Marinette County Needs Economic Development/Tourism Director

I would be miss if I did not respond to Supervisor Rick Polzin's recent letter offering his opinion that the Tourism Marketing agreement with the City and County is working well. The young lady filling this role might be doing a satisfactory job in the eyes of the city (Polzin is also a member of the City Council) but falls short of the marketing needs of the county.

We must remember a working agreement between two parties must be mutually beneficial. My criticism of Ms. Ebsch's marketing efforts is based upon my life-time career in Marketing and Public Relations working in all forms of media - tv, radio and printed matter.

Basically, I feel Ms. Ebsch is demonstrating her lack of experience by not properly identifying our target audience. Our target audience is not local residents who are already here. We must appeal to visitors from outside the county and state who will patronize motels/hotels, restaurants and gas stations for example thus helping county businesses grow. If businesses grow, jobs will be created and our tax base and sales tax revenue will grow. That is our marketing goal.

Secondly, I feel Ms. Ebsch's choice of media for telling our message is not correct and thus wastes money. Activities such as fun, games and prizes at camp sites, messages in ineffective local media accomplishes nothing of value. As stated, our main goal should be to generate a larger customer base for county businesses so they can grow. That includes, for example, participation in trade shows with a targeted audience and messages in midwest publications of significant circulation. Mr. Polzin praises Ms. Ebsch's enthusiasm and energy. However, enthusiasm is no substitute for marketing skills and experience. Obviously Mr. Polzin is influenced by his position as a City Council member and requires a broader perspective.

Mr. Polzin also pontificates about the value of working together. Marinette County and the City of Marinette are two separate and distinct governmental entities, each with their own unique responsibilities. His perspective regarding city residents paying county taxes is one sided at best. Marinette County does not owe anything special to City of Marinette residence more so than to residents of the remainder of the County. Our responsibility is to all county residents. And, one sided agreements do not always increase efficiencies. As stated above: a working agreement between two parties must be mutually beneficial.

In conclusion I do not feel Marinette County has the experienced marketing director it deserves and needs. We are in a one sided agreement where the County is paying one half the salary of a City employee with very little in return. Tourism is an important component of Economic Development. Marinette County deserves a qualified full-time professional to help us to focus and develop a well thought Economic Development plan to achieve our full potential.

Don Pazynski,

Marinette County Board Supervisor



In An Old Spanish Mission

In an old Spanish mission lies a grail from a dream,

Written long ago by a man they called a King.

Now dust is on it's cover and the dream is packed away,

As a morning light shines through a window with

memories of yesterday.



At night the anger runs, at day the pain is deep,

But tucked away inside our hearts the dream is still asleep.

But two thousand years have passed and still the

war goes on,

Raging in a cloud of hate underneath the sun.



Alot of things have changed since then,

but somethings still remain,

A gentle touch, a child's cry, and a poem written in the rain.

And somewhere in the dead of night a man still

has a dream,

In an old Spanish mission lies a grail from our King.

Roger Lanich,

Wausaukee



"Sunrises"

I've seen many sunrises in my life,

Somedays after happiness,

Somedays after pain,

Somedays after the loss of a loved one.



Some sunrises were as brilliantly colored as

the painted sands,

Some sunrises just barely peeked through the clouds,

And some sunrises were hiding behind them,

But I knew they were always there.



The sunrise does not know of sadness,

The sunrise does not know of hate,

It can not differentiate between right and wrong,

It can only bring the rebirth of a brand new day.



I can not remember every sunrise,

But I do remember some,

But even the ones I've long forgotten,

There was a purpose for everyone.



When morning comes the sun will rise,

Over the horizon of the east,

And no man made war or problem can deter it

from it's flight,

For you can not stop the sun from rising in the sky.



There will come a day I'm sure,

When I see the last sunrise in this life,

But when I find my way to the other side,

There will be a new sunrise.

Roger Lanich,

Wausaukee



Poems by Joyce Bedora of Krakow,

former Peshtigo resident

"Are You God?"

A frail little boy

Stood outside a store.

He had no shoes,

And his feet looked sore.

His clothes were ragged

And very thin.

When a stranger walked by

And invited him in.

Little Fellow, what kind

Of shoes would you like?

Find your favorite kind,

That will fit just right.

Now pick out a warm jacket,

Gloves, had and some trousers and shirts.

We don't want Mr. Winter

To cause any more hurts.

When finally suited out,

From head to toe,

The man and little boy

Headed out in the snow.

"Thanks" said the little boy,

His face all aglow.

"Yet there's something, Sir,

I would like to know."

"Are you God?" the boy asked,

With a great big grin.

"No," said the gentleman,

"Just a child of Him,"

Then the boy smiled and said,

Without hesitation,

"I just knew you had to be...

Some relation!"



"What Is Christmas?"

What is Christmas, Mommy?

I heard a young child say.

Is it Santa and eight reindeer,

Pulling a great big sleigh?

Oh, no, my darling loved one,

Christmas isn't that at all.

It's the birthday of our Savior,

God's greatest gift to one and all.

God chose a virgin named Mary,

Who was very meek and mild.

To be the loving mother,

Of God's one and only child.

This child's name was Jesus,

He was born on Christmas Day.

Not in a kingly palace,

But in a manager filled with hay.

A star shone bright over Bethlehem,

And the angels proclaimed His birth.

God sent His only Son,

To be born and live on earth.

He lived a perfect life,

He was kind in every way.

And yet some cruel Roman soldiers,

Nailed Him to a cross, on Good Friday.

But three days later He arose,

They called it Easter Day.

The plan of God was finished,

Christ conquered death in every way.

So we no longer sacrifice,

To Heaven enter in.

We only must ask Jesus,

To come and live Within.



"Christmas Prayer"

Dear Jesus,

Thank You for humbly

Coming at Christmas.

Thank You for freely

Dying on Calvary's Tree.

Thanks for giving us salvation

So costly...yet for free.

For all of these things Lord,

And for so very much more.

We give, "Praise & Honor & Glory

To You, now and forever more."



THE CARNATION OF CHRISTMAS

"And the Word became flesh" (John 1:14)

The Word - the creative, life-giving Word of God -

is not just something you and I hear and believe.

The Word of God is something we become.



The Jesuit poet Gerard Manley Hopkins wrote:

"Christ plays in ten thousand places,

lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his

to the Father through the features of men's faces."



Christmas is a celebration of Incarnation,

a celebration of divinity becoming present in humanity:

born first in Jesus in a stable in Bethlehem; now

borne in us so we can become and witness

the love - forgiveness - and peace of God

in our modern, fast-moving, often troubled world.



"And the Word became flesh," your flesh and my flesh,

so the world and all in it will see and come to believe that

we are all brothers and sisters: one with God, one with

every human being, and one with the earth itself.



Allowing the Word of God to become our flesh is

an invitation - a calling - a challenge - a journey -

a responsibility - a blessing - a spark of the divine.



May the Word become flesh in our time,

in every place, and in people everywhere.

May you and I truly become a Christmas Incarnation.

Merry Christmas!

Michael J. Murphy,

Shawano
