Editor:

The Red Horse Parkinson Alliance and M&M Parkinson Support Group express their most sincere thanks to the many businesses and volunteers that made the educational event "Neuroscientific Approach to Brain Health and Vitality" a great success. 

The room was filled with people and printed information was made available as well as coffee and muffins.  

Parkinson Disease is a very complicated disease as it is controlled by the brain and for a long time brain health was not addressed. 

Soon we will present another educational event to further assist with Parkinson Disease and its side issues.  

An educator, Dacy Reimer,APNP,MSN,CCRC has many years of experience with Parkinson Disease.  

Thanks to Schloegel's for sharing their bay room, the staff was great and coffee and muffins perfect. Penny's Pots and Plants were refreshing and each table had herbs to create a more appealing menu. Thanks, Penny, everyone loved them.

A  special thanks to the Harbor's Community Retirement Building, Kathy Scoggins and her staff who made sure all information was printed and ready to go! To the volunteers, thanks for the hard work. Most of all a warm thank you to the people attending, it was heartwarming to see how many are interested and willing to take time to be informed about Parkinson Disease.

Pat Ihler, President



Dear Editor:

Let's face it, the changes to Peshtigo's garbage pickup will make it difficult for alot of elderly and disabled people to put their garbage out, especially during the winter.

I hope they go back and rethink the whole idea.

The other not well thought out plan that Council and the Mayor engaged in was the failure to negotiate with Badger Paper Mill on the H2O and sewer issues. Mr. Koronkiewicz laid it all out for us in the Postal letters and the full page ad in the Peshtigo Times. As a single person my H2O bill is $128 a quarter. That's $512 yearly. Even if the increase is only 50% it will have a big impact on everyone's budget. Also rents will go up on all the places that include H2O with their rent!!

Why (like Badger's letter) weren't all the facts made clear to all the Peshtigo residents? There certainly would have been input by us to negotiate a sensible contract.

Hopefully if you call in your opinions on both issues (garbage and H2O and sewer) then both can be renegotiated for our benefit.

City Hall phone 715-582-3041 for mayor and if necessary call your Council persons phone numbers.

Respectfully,

Sharon Schounard,

Peshtigo



Editor:

Thank you to all attendees, donors, cosigners, auctioneers- Yoap and Yoap, and Dan Beiber Equipment for a phenomenal 1st annual Coleman FFA Alumni Auction. Without your support this wouldn't have been possible. Your support is greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing you next year at the auction. You are keeping Agriculture alive and thriving in this community.

Sincerely,

Cindi Wautier,

Coleman Ag/FFA Advisor



Dear Editor:

Sunday at Riverfront Park I had the pleasure of working side by side with 50 of the greatest people you would ever want to meet. Sunday, Sept. 8th Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of Peshtigo wanted to give back to our community by doing "God's Work, Our Hand". The parishioners believe God calls on them to serve others and the community. I also had the pleasure of meeting Boy Scout Troop #1902 and their troop leaders. What was exciting to see firsthand, was this troop's work ethics and knowing they represent our future.

I would also like to give a big thank you to Randy and Rhea Monnette, Mike and Debbie Sievert (alderman), Brigitte Schmidt (alderman), Mike Behnke (alderman), who gave of their personal time to help beautify the park.

I would also like to thank our city workers Jim Felker, Richard (Bucky) Swiatnicki, Mike White and our Public Works Department for providing the wood chips, helping with clean up and for everything they do as they go above and beyond.

On behalf of the City of Peshtigo, I want to thank everyone who helped make this community project a huge success.

Cathi Malke,

Peshtigo Mayor



To the Editor:

I was one of two persons representing the Marinette-Peshtigo S.O.H2O group at the Speakers Task Force on Water Quality on Aug. 29 at the UWGB-Marinette Campus. We did a slide presentation on the Tyco/Johnson Controls PFAS contamination in our community. In our presentation, we made a very pointed plea to the legislators at the hearing that we needed Democrats and Republicans to work together to pass two bills introduced in the Wisconsin Legislature.

We endorsed Rep. John Nygren's bill, AB-323 (and Senate bill SB-310) but asked that it be amended. The bill would ban firefighting foam that contained PFAS for use in training. It also would authorize the DNR to regulate the designs for containment systems for when PFAS firefighting foam is being tested. Our amendment, which Rep. Nygren has agreed to introduce, would also ban the disposal of this foam down sanitary sewers, which has been the cause of our city's wastewater treatment plant biosolid contamination. If this had been the state law twenty years ago, none of the wells, drinking water, groundwater, surface water, or biosolids contamination in our area would have occurred.

Critics of the bill point to its not doing anything for the clean-up of the Tyco/JCI contamination in our area or regulation of PFAS in general. This is true. This bill is a start but it is not by any means enough to protect public health or the environment.

The second bill we supported was State Senator Dave Hansen's SB-302 (and Assembly bill AB-321) which would comprehensively regulate PFAS in all its forms and set standards for groundwater, drinking water, surface water (rivers, lakes, the Bay of Green Bay), landfills, and even the air. This is the long-term regulation we need. This bill would provide the needed authority to the DNR to force Tyco/JCI to clean-up their mess.

As we said in our presentation, the Nygren bill is an easy lift. It follows firefighting foam "Best Practices" that even the industry lobbyists tout. It has many Republican sponsors in the legislature. The second bill is a much harder lift because it was introduced by Democrats and supported by Governor Evers. It is opposed by the Wisconsin Manufactures and Commerce (WMC) and the Wisconsin Paper Council. They do not want PFAS regulated no matter how much poison is dumped into our water resources.

So here's the challenge: Can the Republican majority in the State Assembly and Senate find a way to support regulating PFAS comprehensively, or will the polluters carry the day once again? S.O.H2O has shown we are bipartisan and will support both Republican and Democratic ideas that will protect our residents and the environment. Will the legislature show us they can be bipartisan too?

Doug Oitzinger,

Marinette



Thank You Troops!!!

Thanks to the men

and women like you.

Who fought and still fight

For the Red, White and Blue.

Who sacrifices to keep us free,

To give us peace and liberty.

Though things are rough,

And discouraging too,

May you know there are

Many prayers, offered for you.

For protection, your safety,

And your needs to be met,

We thank God for your courage,

Your sacrifice and sweat.

So know "You are Loved",

And appreciated too.

For your hardships and dedication

May God truly bless you."

Joyce Bedora of Krakow,

formerly of Peshtigo

"Little Things Mean a Lot"

Billy was walking home

From school one day,

When he noticed the boy

Ahead of him, tripped.

So he knelt down to help and said,

I'll help carry some of your things

Cause his sidewalk is so slick.

Thanks said the boy,

That's very nice of you.

As they walked and talked,

The boy mentioned his

Name was Jim.

So when they came to his house

Jim invited Bill in.

They split a coke....

And watched a little TV

Before Bill left, Jim said,

Thanks for helping me.

They had lunch together

Occasionally at Junior High

And often talked a little

At school, as they passed by.

But years later right before graduation

Jim pulled Bill aside,

"Thanks for helping me

Not commit suicide".

Remember the day you helped me

Pick up my books and so much stuff?

I cleaned out my locker.

Cause things were really rough.

I collected enough sleeping pills

To take that night.

But by helping me pick up my things

And being a friend...

"You saved my life."

So remember this true story...

And the little things you do.

Though they seem unimportant,

They may help save someone too.

Joyce Bedora of Krakow,

formerly of Peshtigo
