Issue Date: March 11, 2020

Dear Editor:

Enough about the coronavirus in our faces all day, every day, 24/7 hype. We do not need such constant bombardment with each new case, and it's being politicized by the media and Democrat/Communists. Shameful.

Contract this with the total silence by the same groups ignoring all the diseases brought into the country (not to mention the crime) by the illegals for the past 5 years. These subversive anti-American media and political party like to claim President Trump is just using scare tactics by reporting these important issues. However, people living in the border states have reported for 5 years about their hospitals being filled with these illegals and their diseases/crimes, many of those diseases had been eradicated in our country decades ago or longer. Friends in Texas and Arizona have been complaining for many years about their hospitals being filled to capacity by the illegals, and they are fed up with their health and safety being ignored and covered over for the greater gain of the Democrats/Communists gaining voters.

Two years ago I stopped socializing with anyone who still claims to be Democrat although they can see the same as others do of treasons, felonies, lies, manipulations, etc., committed by their socializing with Democrats, both here and downstate. The Democrat presidential candidate wackos should be enough to convince anyone. Substantial and justifiable reasons for people deciding to socialize with only non-democrats.

Don't bother with baseless comments that don't hold water and only prove how uninformed people decide to be. I've heard (and discounted) all of them, based on facts and reality.

Letter to the Editor

"The purpose of this event is to actively engage our community to develop a clear, shared vision that will assist the school district to address the evolving needs of our students for a change tomorrow...Connect: Our Community, Our Students, Our Tradition, Our Future."

In November last year the Peshtigo School District, along with their design team members, created a three-day event with the above noted purpose, if you will, a "Community Conversation."

On Feb. 25, the Peshtigo Area Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Peshtigo School District and inVentureNorth, as well as a multitude of area businesses, manufacturers, educational institutions and civic organizations, held a Peshtigo Career, Education, and Community Expo at the Peshtigo High School.

The Community Expo was largely structured from the course charted by the collective input from various community attendees of the Peshtigo School District "Connect" event, a template. The Peshtigo Area Chamber of Commerce, along with our Expo Planning Group, followed up the Connect event in preparation for the Community Expo with a survey of the Peshtigo High School l0th and 11th graders, seeking to understand their perceptions of our local community and what matters to them.

The results of the survey included concerns about safety, good schools, good paying jobs in a range of fields and working environments, investment in our community, a greater range of activities available to young people, more city-wide events, a welcoming community environmental for all people, and an environment where veterans, retirees, and people with families want to be.

Overwhelmingly, the students in their survey responses valued everything a community can offer: strong manufacturing, a flourishing theatre and arts community, locally owned restaurants, farm communities, retail centers, and activities and resources for people from birth through senior living.

The Community Expo planning group was joyfully astounded by the depth of our students' survey responses. We had to go further, and we did. With the help of the Peshtigo High School administration, the Expo planning group was able to meet with and interview several high school student representatives of a cross slice of our community.

During the interviews with the students, the discussions verified to us what was garnered from the student surveys. We now were certain where we needed to be in meeting the needs of the students as well as the needs of our collective community.

During the next four months leading up to the Community Expo, the planning group met quite often. During these meetings we also discussed how to be inclusive of the employment and educational needs of displaced members of our community seeking to advance their careers through furthering their education or seeking available employment opportunities, - two missions.

Leading up to the Expo event we solicited presenters, community members from the various career paths of student interest: Business Careers such as Management, Entrepreneurs, Marketing, Finance, Accounting, and Human Resources; Helping Professions like Teaching, Psychology, Social Work, and Human Services; Public Service as in City Government, Police, Fire and Military; Healthcare like Nursing, Physician Assistant, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Chiropractic, Physician, Pharmacist, and Dentistry; and Trades as in Electrician, Plumber, Automotive, Information Technology, Construction, Engineering, Welding, CNC, Manufacturing.

In part of our selection of presenters and of community importance we also wanted to recruit those presenters that were raised in our communities as well as those that joined our community and stayed so as to emphasize to our students that our community is a great place to live, learn, and work in the future, seeing their role in creating our future community.

In addition to the presenters our planning group solicited areawide partners in Business, Manufacturing, Education, Healthcare, and Civic Organizations to participate in the Expo, providing to them an opportunity to spotlight their businesses with employment opportunities, as well as reaching an audience so as to talk about benefits available to their employees in a traditional sense and in ways that may not be as obvious.

The Peshtigo Area Career, Education and Community Expo was a success. We are pleased at the results, close to 600 participants, 30 presenters, 32 vendors. We give special appreciation and acknowledgement to our corporate sponsors, business sponsors and presenters that took time out of their day to make that difference, and our vendors who spent time in the gym meeting and answering questions from so many. All of them were so generous in helping us make this happen.

On behalf of the Peshtigo Area Chamber of Commerce to everyone a Job Well Done!

From "Connect" beginnings we are also hopeful that we have left that message of noted purpose, a "Community Conversation."

We hope to likely see you all again in the fall of 2021.

Tony O'Neill, President

Peshtigo Area Chamber of Commerce



To the Editor:

Spring, the season of hope, the season of love, the season of rediscovering, the season of nature being reborn.

As the ponds form in the fields from winter's runoff, and signs of life reappear peeking through the ground, I wonder what this spring will bring. Will it bring hope and peace, or more hate and war?

I remember as a child skating on the frozen ponds in the morning. Sometimes I fell through, that was part of the fun of it, to listen to the ice crack as you walked upon it.

Back then we used our imagination to find things to do, or invent games to play. I used to make furrows from puddle to puddle to watch the water run like a raging river.

Now everything is computerized, planned, and written out for us. Imagination seems to have take a back seat to electronics, and other technology.

All you needed back then was a vivid imagination to have fun, but today alot of that is lost. That seems kind of sad to me. It seems kids can't be kids anymore. To dream, isn't that what childhood and spring is about?

A friend tells me I think too much, that I over think. I guess it's because I never let go of the dreamer in me. I've never been accused of not having an imagination, some say to my detriment. I suppose I've become an overgrown kid who still dreams.

As life goes by faster and faster with each year, I see spring as a new beginning for today's children that they can be free to dream, and live without war, hate, prejudice, discrimination, and fear.

As I watch the snow melt I still dream of listening to the ice crack under my feet, for what is life without dreams? Spring brings hope, even to a 70 year old kid.

Roger Lanich,

Wausaukee



Letter to Editor:

I want to congratulate Kevin and the Cougar Nation on their great wrestling season. Before the season, Kevin told me they were going to surprise a lot of people, while I'm one of them. One of Kevin's strong points is getting and letting people to become involved in the program.

Therefore, I can't mention all who are part of what I call the Cougar Nation. This includes coaches, parents, alumni, fans and wrestlers and more. Each group has a part in the team successes. It amounts to great coaches who care and work hard, wrestlers who are coachable and work hard, parents who support coaches and wrestlers and fans who support the team. After losing some great wrestlers through graduation, this team was really special. They also had a key injury which really hurt.

There is a rumor in Coleman that a short grandma and grandpa who have a lot of bleacher time are walking a whole lot taller these days and they deserve it. This has to be one of Coleman's greatest seasons ever. Plus, they beat Luxemburg which few teams have done.

CO COUGARS!

Roger Pillath



Letter to the Editor:

Noppenberg for Municipal Court Judge

Thank you to the people who have endorsed my candidacy in recent months. My name has been placed on the ballot for Marinette Municipal Judge for the Tuesday, April 7, 2020, election.

The requirements for ballot placement for municipal court judge involve nominating signatures and filing forms through the Marinette City Clerk office. It also requires posting a Statement of Economic Interests (SEI) to the Wisconsin Ethics Commission as stated in chapter 19 of the Wisconsin State Statutes. A packet was delivered to my home address from the Supreme Court Director of State Courts Judicial Education from Madison, WI. The delivery envelope was postmarked Feb. 6, 2020.

My years of public service on the Marinette City Council for ward 6 and with Jail Outreach qualify me to extend my community service as municipal judge. City council members vote on city budgets which include the municipal court budget. We have worked with the city attorney office which represents the municipal court during trial proceedings. We know the members of the Marinette City Police Department who at times prepare for municipal court activity and the dedicated work of the municipal court clerks. I have attended municipal court hearings as my schedule allows and I have read Marinette City Ordinances and Wisconsin statutes that apply to the municipal court system including Wisconsin Chapter SCR 60 Code of Judicial Conduct and the Wisconsin Code of Ethics for Public Officials and Employees that has been provided in the Supreme Court disclosure packet mailed to my house.

I have the time, the experience and the public interest needed to serve as Marinette municipal court judge. I respectfully ask for your vote.

Peter Noppenberg,

Marinette
