From our readers

Issue Date: October 14, 2020

 Dear Editor:

Is there a difference between Mr. Biden and the Trump Republicans on funding the police?

I believe there is. Both do not want to eliminate the police. Both have said that they believe a police force is needed on a local, state, and federal level. The difference seems to me in two areas.

The first is the all or nothing viewpoint of the Trump Republicans that is ignoring obvious racial profiling in Departments in both rural forces and in urban forces in many areas of the country both north and south.

The second point is the general acceptance of all police officers and their general right to act. In essence, this is the Trump Republican viewpoint. That means ignoring a militaristic gestapo element in the police forces of some department. These elements are supported at times by police unions and local sheriffs as evident in the sheriff who minimized the threat to the Michigan Governor. The Biden position is to support police but to eliminate the gestapo elements. The idea of the Biden position is that the police are seen as a respected resource to all of the communities, not a threat to some, and a part of all communities, not an occupying force by some.

The point is both Parties want to maintain a police force but the Democrats wants to stop unnecessary police violence.

Dear Editor:

What has happened to the world?  2020 seems like a journey into the Twilight Zone.  Wisconsin has a governor that has broken the law with his extension of his mask order. The legislature seems scared to call him out so they are waiting on the courts to stop him.  Courts don't move quickly.  If you or I broke the law we would likely be taken to jail.  It seems you can be a politician and break the law with little or no fear of arrest and jail time.

 With the current political crisis or pandemic (which is it?) going on, don't you think that the legislature should be doing their jobs?  They are not in session in Madison much of the year or even virtually pretending to be. Is it finally time to make their work full time 40+ hours per week every week all year long and not just a very well-paid part time position with excellent benefits?  I am having a hard time voting for any of them. How about you?

 Our local officials are not doing a very good job either.  We have the PFAS issues, local rescue squads are facing manpower/money shortages, schools are needing special referendums, deer are infected with PFAS, EHD (Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease) and Chronic Wasting Disease and the county is a mess. It needs new committee members and the Marinette County Board meets once a month during the day . . . . . is this often enough? 

 When it comes to the PFAS issues the DNR (Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources) is moving slower than a snail.  JCI/Tyco says they were not the only company dumping PFAS into the sewer and the environment. I suspect they are correct. JCI/Tyco does not want to pay to test all the wells which is logical since their position is they didn't do all the polluting. The DNR has decided they will test the additional wells which means the tax payers are footing the bill.  Peshtigo and Marinette have a problem with where to go with the PFAS bio sludge. At least they stopped spreading it on local farm fields. This ultimately means the Peshtigo and Marinette tax payers have an expensive problem.

 The Wisconsin DNR offices are still closed.  I wonder why don't you?  We can go to most any other office, bank, grocery store, gas station, doctor, dentist, beautician, bar, restaurant, etc.  This makes no sense.

 Why does the government allow any companies to continue to produce a product with PFAS or other harmful products in it?  If you are a company still producing a product with PFAS in it don't you have a conscience?

Sincerely,

Pete Pfankuch,

Crivitz



 Dear Editor,

I have some thoughts. Thinking about this year's election. The first thing that comes to mind. This horrid pandemic of COVID-19. I find it ironic that political party prides itself on being "Pro-Life." Is acting the complete opposite. These "Pro-Life." People and their leaders are not wearing masks. They have no regard for anyone else but themselves. People who come to mind: Mike Pence, Donald Trump, John Nygren, and Mike Gallagher. There are others. They do not wear a mask at all in this pandemic. They spread disinformation and whine about not working with other leaders.

With the rise in COVID-19 cases in the state of Wisconsin, I am going to blame the lack of leadership of the "Pro-Life." Party. There is no regard for the lives of anyone, not even their neighbors, nor members of the community. This is a death cult. Please vote these people out. This is not a hoax.

Thank you,

Juliane Draze-Buyarski

Old Glory

It's a thrill to watch Old Glory pass by

With hand on heart, and heads held high.

Our flag or red, and white and blue,

Represents our Nation tried and true.

A country of men and women who dared

To fight and die because they cared.

To keep this land of America free

And help preserve our liberty,

But

Then I bow my head and ask

How long, Dear Lord, will our freedom last?

When our right to pray in public schools

Is already against American rules.

When our freedom of speech, and freedom of press

Are helping the wrongdoer gain success.

When our Nation founded under God.

By evil is rapidly being trod.

So

Dear Father, help our Nation return to Thee,

And remain the Home of the Brave and the Free.

With the right to live, and the right to pray

And worship You in our own way.

Where love...and joy...and peace abound

And truth...and justice...can be found.

Then we'll remain proud, with heads held high,

As we thrill to watch "Old Glory" fly.

formerly of Peshtigo



October is Pastor Appreciation Month

P-astors are very special,

A-lways caring, kind, and true,

S-erving God and others.

T-hankful to be of services too.

O-bedient to God's calling.

R-everent to God above.

S-ending forth God's message

of His eternal love.

Does this describe your Pastor?

Then there is something you should do.

Send a gift, a card, or prayer,

It's all up to you.

Just show them you appreciate them

In your own special way.

October's Pastor Appreciation Month,

So let them know today.

by Joyce Bedora of Krakow,

formerly of Peshtigo
