From Our Readers...

Issue Date: July 1, 2021

Dear Editor:

With all the fraud and corruption in the past year (election, Covid), it is apparent far too much is being accepted without question or pushback; actually, it has been gradually increasing for 40 years. Now Marxists are openly crushing our country and, still, no national pushback. democrats established a line of hate two generations ago with â€Political Correctnessâ€, attempting to censor speech. No pushbach by pro-American conservative politicians then or since in protecting First Amendment rights, so the pushing back will have to come from the grass-roots, upward through the ranks until the politicians get the message they are not just there to take up space. Dems say they want bi-partisan cooperation and unity but have never made any move towards that goal. Translation of Dems bi-partisan/unity comments when the television cameras are on: â€Cave in and agree with us; do what we want; we don't intent to consider your opinions (let alone demands); just agree with our missions and motivesâ€. Bunk! And when they are denied that, they harass, bully and threatenâ€not only the opposing politicians, but also threaten harm to their families. Very successful communist tactics. Per Supreme Court Justice Alito, members of Congress used these very tactics with the Supreme Court for favorable decisions.

Unbelievable, some people still praise socialism. Much too much reliance to on-line â€factsâ€. (The only visual lacking in total Communism/Nazism is there is no armored vehicles patrolling our streets watching and controlling citizens. YET!) When the tax rate is up to 80% or more, maybe it will get through to people. Several months ago, I wrote a letter to another publication about this. One woman (don't recall name) rebutted the information, claiming taxes in 5 or 6 socialist European nations ranges from 30% to 35%. This is entirely off base and obviously came from the Internet. That source is probably okay when searching the dimensions of the Grant Canyon or Statue of Liberty, for example, but any issue or topic with a minute whisper of politics not only can be but is manipulated.

I have traveled internationally all my adult life (5 Passports), visiting multiple times 3 of the countries in the above-mentioned rebuttal (The Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland). When traveling, most of us don't just look at the scenery, visit museums/castles/cathedrals, but also go off-the-beaten-tourist-track, going to their neighborhood grocers, diners, retail stores. THAT is where you learn about the people, their lives and countries, with very minor occasional variations between countries.

Shelves were sparsely filled with products, particularly necessities which we were advised was rather normal. When shelves here were empty, allegedly due to Covid, it was reminiscent of the shelves we saw in the socialist countries. Products in those countries are noticeable lower in quality with far fewer brands. Just the basics. Limited, if any, time-saving products or other conveniences. Everything is imported, which puts prices on the moon. Some subsidies apply.

Residential homes in the rural areas, while neat, clean and tidy, are very small, with 2 families per house (necessity), separated by curtains or shutters. Kitchen appliances described as â€very compact'; no self-cleaning anything. On the mountainsides, houses are distantly spaced; in the valleys most are at least a mile from one another. No rural â€neighborhoodsâ€, as we know them.

Farms are small, heavily regulated and subsidized by the government. Not many choices allowed; for example, only 20 cows are allowed per farm. Equipment is antiquated. When break-downs occur, they have to â€make do†until (and IF) repairs can be made.

Employment is nearly 100% dependent on tourism; said dependency trickles down to jobs having no first-level contact with tourists. â€Industry†as we know it is rare, except for production of cheese, wine and chocolates. However, such businesses have generally been owned and operated by the same family for 100 or more years.

Family cars are basic sub-compacts accommodating 2 adults and 2 children up to mid-teens, max. Gas prices (converted to U.S. gallons/currency) were $5.00/gal., compared with $1.75 yo $2.40 gal. here.

Neighborhood schools in the rural areas have 7- to 17- year olds attending one-room classrooms concurrently in all-day sessions.

The subjects of health care met with rather measured and brief responses from middle-aged citizens, such as that it used to be very good; facial expressions were more telling.

Tax rates, as reported BY THE CITIZENS, ranged from 60% to 64%, varying by country; double the Internet-provided info used in above-referenced rebuttal. Would be higher if they had our Democrat/Communist/Nazi Party. Already, the Biden-Harris-Obama, et al admin is talking about levying the 17% global tax here. Don't even think the Constitution will save us; it's on life-support, thanks to decades of uniformed, disinterested voters who don't know about their candidates. The highest level of authority (the U.N.) supersedes individual governments' authority Their designated choice of global religion is Islam †no choices.

Dear Editor:

The Friends of Suring Area Public Library extend many, many thanks to all of the great shoppers, the many volunteer Friends and workers, the wonderful donors, and tireless helpers with set up, sales, and cleanup during this year's Rummage Sales at the How Garage, in Suring! The Friends also extend heartfelt thanks to the residents of the Town of How community for permitting the Friends of Suring Area Public Library to use the How Garage for their annual Rummage Sales during the weeks of May 10th through May 24th, 2021. The Friends are very appreciative and thankful to Thrivent Financial for supplies used at the Rummage Sales. Thank you also to the Towns of Breed and Maple Valley for their support.

Funds from these Rummage Sales are used for needed programs, equipment, and services at the Library, that are not covered under the Library's budget. This year and in the past, the Friends of the Suring Area Public Library have used funds toward the purchase of: speakers and supplies for the summer Library program, additional computers, and other programs. Additionally, through the proceeds from the Friends' Quilt raffle and the Rummage Sales, the Friends of the Suring Area Public Library, along with the Suring Village Board, were able to purchase a digital sign to be placed in front of the Village Municipal building.

The Suring Area Public Library is a 501Â 3 nonprofit organization, that is engaged primarily in fundraising for the support of this Library!

Thank you again for your patronage and support of the Suring Area Public Library, now beginning its 36th year!

Dear Editor:

It was Magic, pure Magic. Blesch Auditorium was hopping and a'rocking in June. What was halted back in March 2020 due to the Coronavirus was revived with Gusto! Kudos and many thanks to Mr. Jon Nutter and the entire Menominee High School Legally Blonde Musical â€Family' (anyone who had anything to do with putting this show together). What a fabulous high-energy production! Talent Galore! A true gift to the community.

Mr. Nutter once again used his artistic and musical expertise to draw the best out of his students. He has ended his remarkable teaching career with a bang! The 30 Menominee High School Musicals which Jon directed during his career are a testament to his commitment to our community. These incredible musicals went far beyond expectations and have involved students, parents, community members and businesses. Mr. Nutter has a humbleness about himself that you rarely see in such a competent person. Our children have been blessed to have such a man as Jon as their teacher, friend, and mentor. 

Throughout the years Blesch Auditorium has been transformed into a variety of places, from the ocean islands in â€South Pacific', to a small town in Iowa for â€The Music Man', to the halls of Harvard in â€Legally Blonde'. He has taken his dream from paper to stage by engaging students, parents, and community members and working numerous hours to accomplish his vision. As a â€Retiree', his presence at Menominee High School will be missed. Wishing him the best in his retirement! 

In Gratitude,

Judy Reid



Dear Editor:



The Menominee American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Unit 146 would like to take this time to reflect with the community that on Independence Day, Americans will celebrate our country's freedom with fireworks, family, and friends.  We are fortunate to live in the land of the free because of our brave United States Armed Forces which are headed by the President of the United States.

The Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4, 1776, as the day America's first Continental Congress declared independence from the British monarchy. The Fourth of July did not become a federal holiday until 1870.  However, it wasn't a paid holiday, and the U. S. Congress didn't expand the grant to make it a paid holiday until 1941.

As the world's largest women's patriotic service organization, the American Legion Auxiliary thanks the courageous men and women who fought - and continue to fight - at home and abroad, along with their families who sacrificed beside them to allow us the privilege to live in the United States of America.

Happy Independence Day, and remember to hoist up the  American flag;  proudly wear red, white, and blue, and show dedication to those whom we owe our freedom - the nation's veterans and military.

â€God Bless Americaâ€.



Connie Kewley

Public Relations chairman

Menominee ALA Unit 146



â€Julyâ€



June surrenders to July,

The inherited heat fills the sky,

And songbirds hide in the shade of trees,

To feel the coolness of the breeze.



The corn leaves wilt upon the stalk,

And painted turtles lie upon the rock,

The pond is filled with ducks and geese,

And cicadas are singing in the heat.



A honeybee flies from flower to flower,

The farmers pray for an evening shower,

The heat keeps rising in the air,

Like an invisible mist that isn't there.



The hot sun shines down and burns the lawn,

As soon as the night turns into dawn,

The green blackberries shrivel upon the briar,

As if they were burned by a fire.



And swimmers crowd to the sandy shore,

To escape the heat in the beach's core,

And daisies line the sides of country roads,

While by the creek croak warty toads.



And the poet dreams of a thunderstorm,

To inspire his poetry in the early morn,

And as soon as he hears a crack in the sky,

He runs out to feel the raindrops cry.
