Issue Date: December 9, 2020

Dear Editor,

Thanks for your paper's excellent coverage of local government meetings including the last Crivitz School Board meeting where I expressed my concerns for student athletes being forced to wear masks while playing. I make my living working in the sports television business. I see a lot of sporting events every year. I did college hockey and basketball this past week in Madison at the UW. Two games of each sport. I do professional and college football, baseball, basketball, hockey, volleyball, etc. I have not seen any players in any college or professional sports wearing masks while playing.  Why do you think that is?  

 I also emailed links after the meeting to the high school principal, school administrator and board members of stories where people have died exercising while wearing masks including kids in physical education classes.  Scary?  I got no response from any of them. There even is one board member that does not wear a mask in the meetings. I think that the athletes and/or their parents should decide what the athletes do. Could it be that the school administrator, school board president and school board are playing a life or death game with kids?  I have not heard of any student or professional athletes dying from Covid.  The school boards president's kid does not want to play if she has to wear a mask . . . . . . perhaps she is smarter than her dad?  I am happy my son graduated from high school before the Covid crisis.  He is not liking "teaching himself mechanical engineering" at UW-Green Bay but that is a story for another letter perhaps?  

Sincerely,

Pete Pfankuch,

Crivitz



Dear Editor:

Our country is in a very sad way right now with all of the hate that is going on and I am sure the devil is very pleased.

A couple of issues that come to mind! The first issue is kneeling to our flag. The flag represents the FREEDOM that we enjoy and the people who died to protect that freedom (all race and color). We salute the flag, we kneel before our LORD GOD. Just ask the veterans, I think they will agree!

But are we forgetting about a most important issue, THE UNBORN. If we kill someone we go to prison, but it is ok to kill our Babies. This will be a very hard question to answer when we stand before the LORD!

I believe this is one of the biggest SINS of mankind, bar none.

 Thank you,

Gerry Haulotte



Dear Editor:

The fifth grade classes of Peshtigo Elementary really made our day better. This adopt a grandparent program in Rennes west is a great idea. My husband received a very nice card from Chase. Also they showed everyone their Halloween costumes by walking by their windows.

There are many elderly people who enjoy children, but never get to see them. When I was a little girl my mom had six children plus her mom and brother all living in one house.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Lonnie Pillath



Dear Editor,

Thank you to a community that stepped up to support local cancer patients and programs. The 2020 Bay Area Volunteer Love Lights program has raised over $8000, which will be donated to the Aurora Health Foundation Oncology Fund, where it will support programs and patients at the hospital.

The trees at the front of the hospital were lit on Monday, Dec. 7, to honor and remember over 1000 of your loved ones. This year, due to the hospital's COVID protocols, there will be no tree lighting ceremony in the hospital lobby. The names of those being remembered and honored will be listed on the digital wall at the hospital.

Thank you to all of our donors for making the names available in a digital format.

Wishing you safe, healthy and happy holidays.

Candy Sheridan

Love Lights, chair

Dear Editor:

It's Advent! That means Christmas is just around the corner. This year it's a crazy, chaotic, COVID-19 Christmas. All of us, including those we serve are experiencing a time of unprecedented instability and adaptation to every changing conditions:

Work/Employment " Many are laid off or downsized due to reduced business because of COVID restrictions;

Hours are changing when a co-worker contracted the virus;

Stress is heightened as employees must interact with the public that may or may not take COVID precautions;

Co-Worker relations may be difficult as the country goes through a most contentious election cycle;

Children " Schools also must adapt to COVID, i.e. most older students are in blended schedules " some days in school and some days at home " this creates a day are/supervision problem that is ongoing"and one that is affected by the health of the provider.

All in all, these days are difficult for all of us. For those who can't pay their rent, water or Wisconsin Public Service, it is much worse. We have seen an increase in requests for basic needs.

We are in need of benefactors to help us provide necessities for our neighbors in need. Consider the words of St Pope Leo, the Great:

"No act of devotions on the part of the faithful gives God more pleasure then that which is lavished on His Poor. Where He finds charity with its loving concern, there He recognizes the reflection of His own fatherly concern. In all this activity there is present the hand of Him who multiplies the bread by breaking it and increases it by giving it away."

Being aware that all we are and have is gift from our Creator please be generous. Donations to: St Joseph SSVdP Conference, PO BOX 563, Marinette, WI 54143-0563.

Today we take time to reflect, to remember, appreciate and thank those who share the work and walk with us through support and encouragement as we go to the needy of our community sharing His light to all we meet.

In the Spirit of St Vincent de Paul,

David Harper,

Spiritual Advisor, St Joseph SSVdP Conference



Dear Editor:

John Nygren surprised us this week with an announcement that he was resigning his position in the State Legislature to pursue opportunities in the private sector. John has been an incredibly important resource to the people of the State of Wisconsin in general and to the people in northeast Wisconsin in particular. His leadership in attacking the drug addiction problems in our communities has been northing short of remarkable. Throughout all of my dealings with him as a Judge he has shown a remarkable balance between supporting strongly and vigorously law enforcement on the one hand and providing the tools and resources to assist addicts on the other.

He has always shown that addiction recovery is the best defense against the criminal activity of addicts. Because of John Nygren we have a Drug Court in Marinette County. I know he has supported local law enforcement and has led the effort to greatly expand treatment opportunities,

John has been very public about the effect of addiction on his own family and to his tremendous credit he has turned his family's personal pain to be a catalyst for extremely positive change to our entire approach of addiction. It is not often that a person can be seen to have changed the conversation on an important issue but John Nygren has not only changed the conversation about addiction problems, he raised our expectations that we could do much better and he saw to it that we had the resources to accomplish that.

I will certainly miss being able to call upon him but I would like to add my voice to the chorus of people who have thanked him for a remarkable career of public service. We are much better as a community for it.

Sincerely,

James A. Morrison

Circuit Judge
