Issue Date: February 28, 2019

Dear Editor:

This is a small analogy to everyone. I am a concerned fisherman and I consider myself a pretty good one.

But Aquila Resources is a better one, you know because they are from Canada. They are way better fishermen than us.

Aquila goes from one spot to another looking for a potentially good area. They use a variety of different lures.

1st Lure. They find a very good area. They start to fish. The first bait they use is "Trust Us", they say everything will be good, we are using 21st century mining. Nothing will happen. "Trust us". They get a few bites. They move on.

2nd Lure they use is Promise. I promise jobs. I promise growth, a future. They get a few more bites then the first lure. They move on.

3rd Lure. They buy into or purchase a business. They try to buy our trust - by donating money. They get a few more bites then the 2nd lure. They move on.

4th Lure is guess what? Money. This lure always catches the big one. Never fails. They bait the hook with extra money hoping to catch the biggest fish. They throw out the bait on a big bobber. Bobber goes down, it's a big one on the line. The fish swallows the hook really deep. There is no way of getting the hook out. They have to cut the line at Trust & Promise and Future. They take the bait of money and move on.

They move on to another sucker hole. Let's not be the sucker on their line . It is still a foreign company from Canada.

Barry Hildred, the CEO of Aquila once said, there will be little resistance due to the lack of intelligence in the area. Let's show him how smart we are and send them home to Canada.

Join the Coalition to Save the Menominee River. Show them what we are.

I recently attended a private meeting with Congressman Mike Gallagher, Rep. Joel Kitchens-Door County, Rep Jeff Mursau-Marinette County from Crivitz, Joseph Strahl, Lobbyist for the Menominee Indian Nation, Chairman Cox, Menominee Indian Nation.

Guess who was invited but was a no-show? Rep. John Nygren. Step up and protect the 89th district John, tell them to go home, step up.

Thank you,

Jeffery J. Budish,

Peshtigo



Letter to the Editor:

The State of Wisconsin legislature that created the Private School Choice Program, Wisconsin Parental Choice Program needs to repeal it. If you live in the Coleman School District this legislation cost you an additional 22 cents per thousand on your property tax.

This cost varies district to district depending on your schools third Friday report (number of students attending) and the number of students from your district participating in the program. The last year all schools could have 3% of their students participate in this program and you would be taxed to cover that expense. In Coleman for the 18-19 school year we could have had 21 students in this program based on 3% of the 683 students in our system. Fortunately we had only 13.5 student in the program but it still cost $107,909.00 to the taxpayer of the district.

Next school year that 3% goes to 4% and will continue to go up 1% per year until the 2025-26 school year. If more people select the Choice program for their children, that $107,909.00 could be a drop in the bucket compared with when we get to the 10% in the 25-26 school year. This year $7,754.00 for students in K-8 and $8400.00 for 9-12 students was allocated per pupil and we were taxed to cover that amount.

As a taxpayer, it is important that we educate our children. I don't believe that means we should pay for two schools systems (public and private charter schools) in Wisconsin. We are being taxed to support charter schools and have no voice in the curriculum or educational opportunities they allow or suppress. If you agree, please contact your State Assemblyman and State Senator and ask for this to be repealed.

Dennis Fiedorowicz



To The Editor:

"An Old Graveled road"

(Dedicated to Mary and Shep)

There's alot of memories down an old graveled road,

Holsteins in the night pasture and a small red barn,

The smell of freshly baked bread and a pumpkin pie,

Shep, you and I running on the family farm.



Dreams still linger down an old graveled road,

Dreams of night catching fireflies,

Shooting buckets at night in the dimly lit hayloft,

Listening to the thunder approaching in the storm skies.



There's alot of memories down an old graveled road,

Shocks of oats and freshly cut hay,

Field corn stretching for the sky,

Hide and seek and running away.



Dreams still linger down an old graveled road,

Splashing in puddles and watching a butterfly,

Sliding down hills we pretended were mountains,

Waiting for a rainbow to form in the sky.



There's alot of memories down an old graveled road,

Searching for newborn kittens in the small red barn,

Peeking at a bluebird's eggs in an old fence post,

Life was always an adventure on Dad and Ma's

family farm.



Dreams still linger down an old graveled road,

Being chased by the rooster until you were saved

by the milkman,

Lying in bed in the morning listening to crickets and frogs,

Counting stars in the night dreaming of our next plan.



There's alot of memorial down an old graveled road,

Dreams we shared that time passed by,

On every rock and pebble and grain of sand,

I still see us running, Shep, you and I.

Roger Lanich,

Wausaukee
