Letters To Editor

Issue Date: December 17, 2020

Dear Editor

I am writing this letter to the editor to address Alderman Rick Berth's comments he put on Facebook which read:

"ATV/UTV people. The City has an excess of $275 left over from paying for signage. I've been after the clerk for over 2 months to get the money back. Always to busy to take care of it. Almost got it done today but the Mayor stepped in an put a stop to that. So please realize who ever donated a check it still sitting at city hall. All money raised at the fundraiser I have but I wanted to get it all together before I gave it to the committee. Any questions call City Hall 715-582-3041."

Alderman Berth came into the office Friday, Dec. 4th and asked the clerk to make him a check for the remaining funds from the ATV/UTV signage. The city clerk responded when I have more time, as she has other issues at hand that needed top priority. The Clerk was called out for personal reasons and left city hall. After the clerk left, Alderman Berth went to another city employee and interrupted that persons work and wanted her to give the extra funds back. He was already given an answer and I don't appreciate back door antics. But I did inform the city worker to call the clerk and see if she wanted her to look into things and their decision was to wait. Being an Alderman he should know how busy the office staff are at this time of year.

Thank you.

Cathi Malke

Mayor, City of Peshtigo

To: Taxpayers of the Peshtigo School District

It's coming again"The next referendum concerning the middle/high school building situation. For the past couple of months an advisory committee has been working on thoughts, needs, wants, and/or fixes to the aging school. As of this moment you are going to vote on two options for the building, maybe. Nothing is solid as of now. But here are the two possibilities being considered.

1. Renovating the existing middle/high school to update to today's specifications and needs at a cost of approximately 31 million dollars. This gives the promise of about 25 to 30 years before the community will have to renovate again.

2. Building a new Middle/High School on a new site at a cost of approximately 1 million dollars. Note that there is no mention of this building's longevity, except to the fact that it should exceed the renovation of the existing building.

During these advisory meetings we have learned the Peshtigo School District has the ability to borrow up a maximum of 42 million dollars, with the consent of the voters. We personally have voted no for all of the past millage proposals. We see no changes to this current proposal from the past. We are trying to alert voters that this situation will not go away, and it will eventually get voted in. That is why we are trying to introduce an alternative new building proposal. For the past two years we have been trying to get someone to recognize that an alternate type of school building is out there. It is called a concrete dome school building. There are usually several domes connected together with a frontal entrance. Think of this as Dome Complex instead of a boxed in building. This type of building has many advantages over what might be viewed as normal.

1. Shorter timeline to build.

2. Most energy efficiency.3. Cost approximately 20% less than a conventional school.

4. Strongest type of building that can be built.

5. Green energy footprint due to less material being used.

6. Endorsed by FEMA as "Near-Absolute Protection" in a weather and/or earthquake safe structure.

7. Concrete dome longevity is measured in century's, not decades.

8. Easy access to each area of the complex.9. Less cost for the heating and cooling equipment.

10. Lower maintenance cost.

11. Lower insurance cost.

12. Community pride in a unique and futuristic school.

Performance Service Inc. (PSI) presented a renovation of existing school at approximate cost of 31 million.

Performance Service Inc. (PSI) presented a new conventional school building at approximate cost of 41 million.

Our research into the Johnson Creek School District Dome Complex approximate 20% less than conventional will be 32.87 million. This was not presented by PSI to the advisory committee and/or the school board. We would like school board to view the Johnson Creek School district by visiting their website of Johnson Creek.com. They can view two videos presented by Johnson Creek Superintendent and Principal, which give a walkthrough of the five domes.

The point of interjecting the Dome Concept is furthering due diligence in terms of alternative analysis options for building a new school. If we are spending this much money every option should be explored to the fullest extent before a millage vote takes place.

Denial is Killing Us and Democracy

Bad public policy often takes a long time to manifest itself in death and destruction. But today we are seeing it happen with alarming rapidity.

Donald Trump and his Republican followers have denied Covid-19 is a threat. Trump said, "It will just fade away." He has convinced people not to use basic pandemic hygiene, like wearing masks. Now over 200,000 people are being infected and over 2200 people are dying in the United States from Covid-19 daily and the virus is spreading uncontrolled at continually increasing rates. Australia had a total of six active cases of Covid-19 on December 9.

Trump denied he lost the election. With endless baseless court cases and a constant loud litany of lies about election fraud that didn't happen, Trump has convinced a large number of people who should know better that our elections are not free and fair. State and local elected officials, poll workers and volunteers who should be hailed as heroes for conducting the election during a dangerous pandemic are receiving death threats from Trump supporters.

A majority of Republicans in Congress are denying that Trump has been a wholly incompetent liar and a corrupt bully while in office. Rather than recognize Joe Biden as President-elect, they have enabled Donald Trump as he dismantles our democracy with a barrage of constant corrosive lies. They deny Trump's dictatorial tendencies and pretend his bizarre court cases and conspiracy theories about election fraud are simply part of due process while we teeter closer and closer to the demise of our democracy.

Denial is a bad public policy. It is killing us as it kills our democracy. Only by facing facts can we continue as a nation.

CHRISTMAS THOUGHTS

As I grow stronger spiritually I begin to see the Spirit God present in all humankind, in every religion, and in creation itself. I believe that the Spirit God knocks on every person's heart wherever they are and whatever they happen to believe or not believe.

It is up to inspirited people, including Christians of every kind, to give witness by word and example of a God who fathers and mothers us, who loves us, who suffers with us, and who offers us the uniting Spirit so strongly witnessed by Jesus of Nazareth, who was born in a stable and laid in a manger.

CHRISTMAS is only a remembrance unless we allow the Spirit to be born again in our hearts and souls this holy season. It means letting go of our feelings of racial, social, political, religious, or sexual superiority. It means loving and welcoming all others with the Spirit Who flows in and through us.

Perhaps Christmas is like a light switch to help us refocus on our oneness with all creation and all living things; refocusing on the Christ in whose transparency " and therefore in our own transparency " we learn and continue to learn to meet the living God, the Spirit Who walks with us in good times and bad, Who offers harmony and hope to a troubled world.

May the seasonal decorations and multi-colored lights remind spiritual seekers everywhere to reflect the Spirit Presence " as Jesus so clearly did " for all to see.

If only we can learn to love as we are loved; if only we can learn to forgive as we are forgiven; to welcome as we are welcomed. What a difference it would make to those who have given up on Church or on efforts, however small, for racial and social reconciliation, for equality, peace, and brotherhood everywhere.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!

Mike J. Murphy,

Shawano
