From our readers

Issue Date: July 1, 2020

Editor:

We wish to express our deep gratitude to all the men and women of law enforcement who have protected us for eighty years of life.

They have provided the security and safety to allow us to pursue the freedoms we enjoy as American citizens under the Constitution of the United States.

To all police and law enforcement employees everywhere in America our deep thanks for your service and duties that you perform daily.

Without your services we cannot pursue happiness and live a life with liberty and justice.

May God bless our law protectors who serve every day in America and may God Bless America the land we love!

Sincerely,

Rich and Eileen Tork,

Menominee





"DREAM"

(For the 2020 Graduating Class of

Wausaukee High School)

Dream.

Let the hours explode,

Let the stars fly through the sky,

Like a wind on fire.

Dream.

Let the poems unfurl,

Let the mystery break through the night,

Like a dove breaking free.

Dream.

Let the love trickle down,

Let the passion unfuse,

Like the first buds of spring.

Dream.

Let the mind clear clouds,

Let the heart break chains,

And snap them in tow.

Dream.

Let the words defy the silence,

Let the wind cast through barriers,

Hidden from you,

And dream.

Roger Lanich,

Wausaukee



Dear Editor:

I strongly disagree with the decision to hold the Marinette County Fair in August (or anytime this year).  Marinette County cases of covid-19 are increasing and these cases are not just within the Marinette city limits. Anyone can check the spread of the virus in the county at https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/cases-map.htm which shows the spread using the census tract map. The area of infection is spreading within our county and surrounding counties are also showing an increase. Does the Fair Board have some arbitrary number picked that they feel is a "safe" number of sick people? As we all know by now, a person may have the virus, never have symptoms, yet expose others who may become sick, and the older members of our communities are more vulnerable. They are also putting the 4-H kids at risk to catch or spread the virus. To say "sanitation measures will be in place, and additional hand sanitizing stations are being planned" is hardly reassuring.  How can the board be certain they are keeping ANYONE safe? I've been to the fair: yes, much of it is outside, but it would be difficult, and sometimes impossible, to maintain a safe distance if you wanted to view exhibits or visit a vendor or food booth (and I'm guessing that masks would not be required). The article noted that the Fair Association has liability insurance but "no pandemic rider." So what will they do if someone gets sick and sues them? And no matter how reputable the carnival company is, I don't want to be anywhere near anyone that thinks riding carnival rides is a good idea right now. There is a reason many fairs have been cancelled this year - a concern for human life.

Sincerely,

Bonnie Chartier

Pound, WI



Dear Editor:

Re: Fish Viewing Platform

When I read last week that dreams of a platform started five years ago, I was surprised. Actually it was 22 years ago when then alderman Fred Woulf (with insider information) as a mill employee, and Steve Sharp, Parks Director, came up with the idea. Just want to make sure they get recognized as the original dreams, since they have both passed away.

Jeff Larsh,

Former Park Employee
