Editor:

In case you missed the latest underhanded effortsâ€.JCI compelled the Town of Peshtigo Chairman to call a special meeting on 1/28/21 to advocate for steps toward advancing JCI's preferred permanent water outcome. In advance of that meeting JCI called every single supervisor directly to coerce them into complying and even went so far as to â€proof read and edit' a motion from the Chairperson to ensure it covered JCI's intent.  The conceptual drawing (if you can call it that) which JCI provided in advance of said meeting covered ONLY the initial plume and not even the entire class boundary, PROVING that they have no intention of ensuring a permanent water solution for the entire class boundary.  More false representations, empty promises and deception from our Corporate Neighbor.  After two years of failing to provide a safe permanent water solution I see no reason for the urgency to do so in the next two months, especially when the April election will change the structure of the Town of Peshtigo Board.  Between the weak 'solutions' that JCI secured with the City of Marinette, the inadequate 'settlement' that they have offered impacted residents and this obvious attempt to ramrod a weak solution for the TOP municipality it is ABUNDANTLY clear that they are trying to get out ahead of something and want to wrap up their liability for the lowest dollar possible.  The question remainsâ€what is that â€something'?

Cindy Boyle,

Town of Peshtigo



To the Editor:

It was the â€big lie†that led an angry mob to insurrection at our nation's Capitol on January 6, 2021. It is shocking that some candidates for the 89th Assembly District Special Election would continue pushing this lie.

Debbie Jacques of Green Bay has declared that she will be the voice of the people by investigating November election fraud that doesn't exist. She has been repeating this lie to excite her base. The irony, of course, is that she's never lived in the 89th District. Not now, not ever. Hard to be the voice for a place you've never lived in to investigate election fraud that didn't happen when your mailing address is a P.O. Box in Suamico, but your real address is in the City of Green Bay.

Mike Kunesh has also declared he's a candidate who will â€hold the Wisconsin Election's Commission accountable.†He's got a bit of a Debbie problem too. He did grow-up in Marinette and does own a vacation home in the Town of Peshtigo were he has voted for several years. But he really doesn't live there. He lives in the City of Appleton in a house three times the size and value of his cottage in the Town of Peshtigo. That's where his family lives, where his wife votes and works, where his children attended school, where his real estate tax bill for his vacation home is sent, and where his business address is: the City of Appleton. He uses his vacation home to get appointed to various local committees, like the Town Plan Commission, and to visit his real estate agency in Marinette. But live here? No. He's been working this deception for several years. He's more subtle than Debbie, but his con is really much bigger. Some might call it â€voter fraud.â€

So the choice is up to the voters. They can be misled once again by the â€big lie†of election fraud by candidates who have questionable election issues of their own. Or the voters can choose to vote for someone different. And yes, he lives in the district, his children attend school in the district, his primary residence is in the district, he pays property taxes in the district, and he serves on the Marinette County Board.

His name is Karl Jaeger.

Tom Faller

Chair, Marinette County Democratic Party



Editor:

The Assembly is holding off voting to end the mask mandate after the Journal Sentinel reported a risk of losing millions of dollars in federal food aid if they did.  I wonder if they also saw the J-S article of January 26 that reported the following?

â€A recent study by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed in counties with face mask mandates, new COVID-19 cases decreased by 6% between one week in July and one week in August. In counties without mandates, new cases increased by 100%.

â€According to Wisconsin Medical Society CEO Bud Chumbley, "Other than vaccines, mask-wearing is one of the few tools we have in our arsenal to help prevent spreading COVID-19 even further than it already has.â€

â€The move [overturning the mandate] . . . has drawn opposition from organizations representing hospital leaders, churches, doctors, emergency medical workers, pharmacists, small-business owners, and concert venues.

â€Twenty-four organizations registered against the resolution including the powerful Wisconsin Hospital Association and Wisconsin Medical Society, a children's hospital, organizations representing doctors, assisted living facilities, health care departments, people with disabilities and a state organization of churches.

â€No groups have registered in favor of the proposal.

The antics in Madison seriously affect state residents.  Nearly 6,000 are dead and 1,500 new infections are diagnosed every day.

The Assembly pause provides the opportunity for those outraged by politicians supporting this action to join the scientific, medical, religious, and business interests in demanding they quit the games and get to work reducing COVID infections.

Dear Editor:

Peshtigo residents trees endangered.

Upon returning home from work last Tuesday, Jan. 26th I'd found some one had taken a tree from the front of my residence on North Wood. I don't expect to garner much sympathy for a tree, particularly in these times of hardship. No matter that my wife and I would enjoy the late summer afternoon shade it graced our porch with. Or how our grandchildren used to marvel at it's seeds as they spiraled down like tiny helicopters. Just a season ago I lifted my great granddaughter to pull a changing Autumn leaf she wondered at from it's branches.

What bothers me most is the callous disregard for those who cared for this tree in it's unannounced removal. If informed of this intent I would had sought other solutions rather than redress for wrong. I feel I've let an old friend down.

I was informed by the city engineer that it was his decision to remove the tree due to structural damage under his authority as city forester. I don't know his accreditation in that regard but I would have been happy to pay for a second opinion. That tree was healthy and viable. Apparently the city needn't care about my concern for the tree nor inform me of their intent as it was on land in my front yard under city control. I guess making it a city tree. That brings two things to mind, it was your tree too and they work for us.

Jeff Jandrey,

Peshtigo
