THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
From our readers
Issue Date: February 7, 2019
I would like to thank everyone who donated and participated in the first annual Healing Patriots Ice Fishing Tournament that was held Saturday, Feb. 2.
Special thanks to the Coleman American Legion Post 280 for their generous $500 contribution to the program, Lee's Family Foods in Peshtigo for the use of their tent and to Special Moments D.J. Scott Harris, for the music he provided during the tournament.
Also thank you to all those individuals and businesses who donated food, time and gifts for the bucket raffles during the tournament.
The goal of the Healing Patriots is to help veterans and first responders who may have Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) by getting them involved in various programs. These programs go a long way to help those affected.
We are currently in the planning stages for next years fishing tournament. As a veteran who suffers from PTSD, I want to do whatever I can to assist the Healing Patriots. I was lucky to be able to go on a fishing trip with them last May and it truly is an uplifting experience. If anyone would like to get involved in the Healing Patriots program go to HealingPatriots.org.
Thanks again for all your support.

To all the Fire/Rescue volunteers at the Crivitz Lumber Co. fire, thank you. Everyone should be aware that most of the personnel at all fires are volunteers, not paid, just dedicated, giving people. Every Community has a volunteer Rescue/Fire Departments; we need these people. A volunteer gives of his/her time to go to classes to acquire the knowledge for each job with no pay, just dedication. I thank my Fire department and ALL Fire departments in the County.
Also, along with this I say good job to all outdoor people in this cold weather; Postmen, Garbage collectors, Town crews, County crews, Police and Sheriff departments, thanks for your dedicated service.

Recently, we held listening sessions in Gillett and Wausaukee to hear what issues and concerns are most pressing to our constituents. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who braved the winter weather to attend. We will be holding additional listening sessions in the upcorrung year.
Our democracy is strongest when we have an active citizenry, and we had a respectful and thoughtful dialogue on a number of issues. Over the past eight years, Wisconsin has made tremendous progress, but there is still work to do. With the 2019-2020 Legislative Session now underway, we will continue to make sure that the issues affecting the Northwoods are prioritized in Madison.
If you ever have any questions or concerns relating to state government please feel free to contact our offices. Our staff will be more than happy to assist you.
