From Our Readers

Issue Date: August 2, 2018

To the Citizens of Marinette County:

Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve is seeking re-election to his third term as your Sheriff. It is with great honor that I endorse him as the clear choice to continue to lead the Marinette County Sheriff's Office in 2019 and beyond. Sheriff Sauve is compassionate, caring and a dedicated law enforcement practitioner. Sheriff Sauve has a proven record of leadership through his connection with the Wisconsin Badger State Sheriff's Association; serving as a Board of Director for the region. His dedication to community service is unwavering and he makes sound decisions based on his years of experience and knowledge of Marinette County.

Sheriff Sauve and I have had many in-depth conversations regarding public safety in Northeast Wisconsin; many of which permeate across county lines. This type of collaboration is needed in the Office of Sheriff. Sheriff Suave thinks outside of the box and looks for solutions to problems before they arise. Sheriff Jerry Sauve is the clear choice as your Sheriff.

Sincerely,

John R. Gossage,

Brown County Sheriff



Dear Editor:

The Oconto Falls Professional Police Association proudly endorses Todd Skarban for Sheriff. We unanimously support Todd as the best choice for moving the Sheriff's Office in a positive direction and uniting Oconto County. Todd's vision for a service-centered commitment to community is a breath of fresh air. We look forward to working with him as he fulfills his potential.

Editor:

We live in a land of absolute abundance, food when we want, medical care, and have every conceivable gizmo, toy or plaything. Do we appreciate it, or take it all for granted?

Obesity and overweight people have become the normal, both in children, young adults and adults. All the while the majority are whining about something or other.

Many people claim some religious or spiritual belief and some act with a degree of benevolence, most don't.

Our welfare recipients don't generally appreciate what they get, it's expected, and play the system like a fiddle, and the social workers keep handing it out with little oversight.

The point of this letter is about two of my friends, one in Honduras and one in Belize. One contracted dengue fever and the others son broke his hand and just this morning Maria took a bad fall. In these countries, no money-no food, no money-no doctor.

And while we whine about internet service, and the pizza didn't have pepperoni, these people live a precarious daily life.

Be THANKFUL.

Respectfully,

Robert Davis



Dear Editor:

Nothing but the best for Oconto County!

The upcoming election for Oconto County Sheriff is fast approaching. It is imperative that everyone votes, and votes, after evaluating the qualifications of each candidate. This should not be a popularity contest nor should it be for the support of the "local boy" because he set a goal for this position many years ago, though he did little to continue his education and training to better himself for this position. As taxpayers, we deserve the best for each of our communities and the County, as a whole, which includes professionalism, education, training and experience. We are taxpayers concerned about quality services at a conservative and fair cost. We want and need a safe and quality lifestyle for our families and for our tourists. We need to eradicate the threats to our way-of-living. We need to work together to develop programs county-wide, or in Town clusters, addressing issues in the area, at an affordable cost for all. All emergency departments in the County are needed in these partnerships. Ed Janke, as Sheriff, will be there for us as he has proven to be there for us in the past. The winner of this position will hold office for four years and will determine the future direction our County will travel, impacting the Sheriff's department's budget which presently exceeds $7 million per year, job satisfaction for 35+ employees, narcotic usage, mental health problems, crime prevention, and long-term vision for the County, our Towns, the Sheriff's Department, and all our social service departments"paid for, by us, the taxpayers.

I am voting for Chief Deputy, Ed Janke for Oconto County Sheriff, who never stops listening, learning, training and improving his qualifications in his line of work; who has always been available to those seeking assistance with addressing social and criminal problems in their communities; and who has assisted individual Towns to build upon and strengthen their volunteer departments and Town structure.

See you at the polls and Vote for Ed Janke.

Ann Hogan, Chairperson

Town of Riverview



Letter to the Editor:

I grew up in Marinette County. When we were young my parents took us camping all over the county. We grew up hearing the stories of the two unsolved murders at McClintock Park, July 9, 1976. It was something that I had nightmares about as it went unsolved for most of my life. Never did anyone seem to do anything about solving this terrible crime that scared the dickens out of many of us when we were younger and even now.

Then I find this Cold Case Update write up in the paper about our County Sheriff and all about this NEW technology to identify peoples looks decades later by their DNA. And with this NEW info now, possibly the sketch it generated could produce a new lead to help solve this case from 1976. I was impressed at first and interested in the new technology. So, I goggled and called the company/ place that provides this service. The woman on the phone there kindly answered all my questions. She said that this technology has been available since 2014. And it is not only used successfully since 2014 by Law Enforcement to solve cases but also it has successfully helped people find their lost brothers, sisters. mothers and fathers. And has been around for years and used in Wisconsin since 2014.

What I find very disappointing, is that this technology has been available for 5 years and our Sheriff is just now utilizing this new technology to solve these murders. I'm just wondering why now??? Is it because it is an election year? Why is his eight years as Sheriff is this now suddenly newsworthy? I'm not upset that something is finally being done, better late than never. But it just seems too coincidental that now he is pursuing this case and puts it all in the paper calling it new technology just before an election where he is a candidate and has a competent challenger in it. Without all the facts, the article, sure made it sound likes he is doing something new and innovative.

NOW I wonder; with what the position of Marinette Sheriff gets paid and the resources that he has had available to him for 8 years why didn't he stay on top of what and when resources became new and available through those 8 years to help solve crimes? And when he now has finally done something about the McClintock Murders, why did he call 5-year-old technology NEW technology? Just wondering.

Please take the time to vote on August 14 and support Fred Popp. We need and deserve a change!

An informed voter, who does her homework about who she votes for

Marinette



Letter to Editor:

Peshtigo Football Brats for Breakfast Fundraiser

I would like to thank everyone who bought brats from our football team on Wednesday, July 25. I would also like to thank those who made a donation to our program. Through your generosity and appetite we were able to raise over $2,200 for our football program. The money raised will go towards football equipment and for a coach bus so we can ride in comfort on longer bus trips.

I would also like to thank all the volunteers who gave freely of their time and effort to help with the organization of the event, the cooking, the packaging of the brats, the delivery of the brats, cleaning up after the event. Our football team learned valuable lessons such as team work, following a game plan (delivery schedules and where they are to be delivered), following directions. We hope to do this event again next year and with your continued support and generosity we will. A special thank you to Jeff and Lisa Schaut for their extra efforts. Making signs, advertising, organizing the deliveries, and everything else they did to make this event a success. Without their efforts this event would not be possible. Once again, thanks to all!! Go Dogs!!

Jeff Bayerl,

Head Football Coach,

Peshtigo High School



Dear Editor:

I am writing this letter to the editor in support of Fred Popp for Sheriff. I was employed at Marinette County Sheriff's Office (Dept.) for 12 years, the last 4 as the initial Education/Program Officer. Jail programs are an important part in the rehabilitation process to help individuals become productive members of our community. Marinette County Jail has the highest success rate of GED completions. Sheriff Sauve is not a "Program Supporter" as evidenced by his desire to suspend every program for months, after I retired. Many programs are self-sustaining, such as AA, NA and Religious Programs.

Sheriff Sauve delayed filling the Program Officer position for 2 months, showing that this was not a priority, even though there were many suitable applicants. This prolonged delay impacted many of our contracts/agreements to provide programming, notably NWTC for GED. This happened again when that officer took another position, with the void being several months before another officer took the position. Again, the Sheriff wanted all programs suspended for months.

Sheriff Sauve does not foster teamwork or camaraderie between deputies and Correction Officers which creates a barrier that's getting worse. This contributes to low morale in what are already difficult jobs.

He angrily berated me for missing work to bring my daughter and newborn home from the hospital while her husband was deployed overseas in the U.S. Navy.

Sheriff Sauve is out of touch with many of the employees, rarely visiting the jail. Now is the time for change.

Fred Popp has promised to support Jail Programs and stay connected to all employees of the Sheriff's Office.

The August 14th primary will decide the Sheriff's race, so please take the time to vote for Fred Popp.

Dear Marinette County Residents:


I have observed a good number of Sheriff's in our County since the 1950's when my father held that office. Right now, we have a very good Sheriff in Jerry Sauve.

I served as the Chief Deputy of the Marinette County Sheriff's Office for several years. I watched Jerry Sauve come to our agency as a young Deputy now nearly 34 years ago. He learned fast, worked hard, and promoted up through the ranks from Deputy to Sergeant, Lieutenant, and Chief Deputy. In 2010 he was elected our Sheriff and re-elected in 2014. I'm proud to support him in his re-election effort.

Sheriff Sauve has remained poised under pressure, and yet in his calm but confident way, kept us informed by clear, concise, and timely press releases. Under his watch his agency has handled many difficult, dangerous, and involved matters, and handled them well.

Sheriff Sauve takes his Sheriff's responsibilities seriously. He is very deserving of another term as our County Sheriff.

Sincerely;

Robert R. Kohlman,

Marinette
