Letter to the Editor:



Is your vision for the future for our community viewed through the lens of "what I see now will be forever?" I am stuck with what I have, "nothing will change."

The REALITY IS that everything changes, always. However, the system works gradually, at such a pace that we can be lulled to believe that what we see and feel today is the future.

A few years ago, I was a chaperone on a bus trip. The trip included overnight travel. At about 2:30 am, we were traveling on the interstate southbound. Seated in the front row It was evident to me, that the bus driver was sleepy, I could see him nodding off, swerving, head bobbing. From our different perspectives, the bus driver was lulled into believing that nothing would change, you know the rational, "I have felt this way for a while, I am still on the road, it's OK." But anyone in my seat could see the future. Without doing something, the outcome would involve traveling off the road at a high rate of speed. Calling the driver on his misguided belief and talking him through pulling over was the kindest thing I could do for the driver and a bus load of youth.

Concerning our regional community; If you put yourself in the passenger seat you can see, we are dozing and lulled into believing that what we have is the future, because that is all we see, and from our narrow perspective it looks as if we are stuck in a system that will never change.

Hey, let's wake up, refresh, and get on the road of a promising future. Remember our youth are counting on us to pay forward the promise of a brighter future others have provided for us. What do you need to see the road that will get us there?

I know I run the risk of seeming radical, but calling you awake is the kindest thing I can do. Eyes glazed over on the road directly in front of you, your subconscious believes nothing will change. But look down the road, and you can see what changes, all the time, and you are in the driver's seat.

We have all we need to create a brighter future and build a new model for prosperity.

What can YOU do to drive us to success? Without anyone else permission and at little or no extra cost, you can start by choosing to Buy Local First.



Keith Killen,

Marinette







Dear Editor,



The Wisconsin Health Care Association and Wisconsin Center for Assisted Living (WHCA/WiCAL) represents skilled nursing and assisted living centers across the state. On behalf of Wisconsin's care providers and the elderly and disabled residents they serve every day, I would like to thank Representative Nygren for his leadership and commitment to long-term care during budget proceedings on the Joint Finance Committee. Representative Nygren has played a vital role in advancing critical reimbursement increases for skilled nursing Medicaid and Family Care funding.

Wisconsin's long-term care providers are currently facing a crisis in the availability of caregivers. A recent statewide survey of care providers found that 1 in 5 caregiver positions remains unfilled. Our providers have worked tirelessly to deliver quality care with limited state resources, but additional reimbursement is needed now to maintain care excellence and to ensure access for our frail elderly and disabled community members.

Representative Nygren's leadership in advancing a budget proposal with resources for long-term care providers will mean more competitive wages for caregivers and will translate to better paying jobs, which will help providers fill open caregiver positions to provide quality care to long-term care residents.

We as a society will ultimately be judged by how we care for our elderly and disabled family members, neighbors, and loved ones. Representative Nygren has shown true leadership in his efforts through the Joint Finance Committee to protect and increase funding for care services for our frail elderly and disabled populations. Wisconsin's care providers thank Representative Nygren for his commitment to long-term care.



Sincerely,



John Vander Meer,

President & CEO

Wisconsin Health Care Association/Wisconsin Center for Assisted Living
