From Our Readers...

Issue Date: August 19, 2021

Dear Editor:

The preamble to the constitution says:

We the people of the United States, in order fo form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.

Last year the covid19 virus gave us 600,000 dead in America. How many died in the world?

99% of those currently infected by the delta variant of the covid virus are unvaccinated. Hospitals all over the country are being overwhelmed again with covid variant infected victims. The virus has mutated and is more deadly and much more infectious and is suppressing our economic recovery.

This year the anti-vaxers have given us a mutated covid delta virus which will force us back into plague.

How many will die this time? How much will our economic recovery suffer?

When anti-vaxers deny reality (a virus) by refusing a tiny shot (medical science), they also ignore the safety and freedom of all of us (civic duty) and torpedo our economy.

Are anti-vaxers truly unwilling to care for or act with concern for others?

Anti-vaxers can't see the truth of the mercilessly deadly assault on American lives by the covid virus and can't take a tiny shot in order to defend themselves, their families, their friends, and all other Americans.

We, the vaccinated will continue to defend all American lifes and all our freedoms according to the preamble to the constitution of the United States.

Join us. Help us take care of all of us.

Bill Blair

Editor:

To City of Peshtigo-In response to the letter to the editor last week from Lou Nesberg.

Thank you to all the people that protect, serve and make our city safe to live in. The (ARPA) funds were specifically designated for people that worked through the pandemic.

People need to realize that this is a process. Recommendations are made to the committee and then are presented to the council. In this case they were not. The Peshtigo Times states, â€The committee recommendation had been changed by adding a $100 bonus for poll workers.†Why?? These funds, grants, covid relief money it all comes out of our pockets in one way or another.

So as alderman and representative for District One I want to be as well informed as possible before spending YOUR money.

As far as the City Art Project, it's a great idea and a beautiful thing. Something to be proud of. Although again the process was ignored. An abandoned vehicle was double parked on public property. Notices and warnings are issued to residents by the city against this sort of thing all the time. So why can the city do it and call it art??

Thank you,

Alderman Rick Berth



Editor:

Most people have seen ads on TV for some type of statin drug. Near the end of the ad it will say: don't take this product if you are allergic to it's ingredients. The Covid vaccines are experimental, they have no flyer listing it's ingredients. Since there is no disclosure of it's ingredients, how can one be sure if it will produce a negative reaction?

Hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin have and are being used to treat Covid with 100% effectiveness with no side affects, and they are cheap whereas the vaccines costs billions.

Nine people associated with the pharmaceutical companies making Covid vaccines have become billionaires this last year. Pfizer received four billion dollars from the government last year and expects to get twenty-six billion more this year, and that's Pfizer, what about the other four companies?

Is it about health or the love of money?

Respectfully,

Robert Davis,

Town of Peshtigo



Editor:

For immediate publication to all news sources: To all Michigan landowners and property owners in Holmes and Faithhorn Townships:

A Public Hearing has been announced by the Mineral Leasing Division of the State of Michigan for Wednesday Sept. 1, 2021, at Menominee County MSU Extension Offices, S904 US-41, Stephenson, Michigan from 6 pm to 8 pm.

Great Lakes Exploration, owned by Tom Quigley, has submitted an application for exclusive rights to explore â€1,609 acres, more or less†for the presence of metallic minerals.

If this application is approved, all landowners will again be

subjected to massive drilling of test holes on State land to determine the viability of sulfide mining.

Let us learn from history: Tom Quigley performed the test drilling on the Aquila properties, which to this day have not been properly abandoned and sealed, creating potential contamination sites for underlying water aquifers.

When Mr. Quigley brought in Aquila Resources, they proceeded to sell their stock to area residents, promising huge profits, financial gains for businesses and schools, and temporary jobs. They continued to pull millions of dollars out of this region from residents' pockets, savings and retirement accounts. Last Friday, Aquila stock price was $.05 cents a share.

If Great Lakes Exploration is granted this Mineral Lease from the State of Michigan, it will be a pre-cursor of more of the same rhetoric, and history will repeat itself.

PLEASE LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD:

Public Hearing: Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021, MSU Offices, S904 US-41, Stephenson, Michigan. 6 p.m. †8 p.m.

Write to: DNR, Mineral Management Section, PO Box 30452, Lansing, Michigan 48909. Email to: DNR-Minerals@michigan.gov.

We stand opposed to granting this Mineral Lease to Great Lakes Exploration.

Dear Editor:

I do not know about you and your other readers but I am real tired of a few things. In no particular order: The bad people, criminals, family and friends blaming the police when someone is arrested, shot or killed. Do not put yourself in that position. Do not get in trouble or if you are do not run from the police. That seldom turns out good for the accused. 

 Do not expect politicians that are elected to know anything about most subjects or use common sense. Many do not have any qualifications for the position/office. Few have any useful education, background or life experiences for the position they are elected to do.  If they have been in the position for a long time they most likely have no idea of how the real world should work anymore.  The real world is broken right now but that is another long letter maybe next time?  The pay for most elected (part-time) positions is lousy, long hours and poor information provided to them by the paid and other elected people.  Just because they won the popular vote does not mean they will even remember the voter's needs or their promises. Do not think everyone or anyone else can or will deal with the things you think are wrong. Why should they if you do not help?  Starting at the bottom to address the issues may not be the best method to get it done quickly if at all. Starting at or near the top seems to go quicker. These higher level people can usually make things happen good or bad. However most likely they will pass the buck or do nothing.  

 Assume nothing, get everything in writing. Be prepared to spend some money, a lot of money if you need lawyers and other professionals help. Do not expect any elected officials or government employees to actually help you, your cause or provide true good customer service. While it is true your tax dollars are used to pay them they do not seem to understand that. The elected officials, government employees and even many tax payers think that money from the federal government is free also. It all comes from taxes. Government and schools do not make any money. None.  Many of these government bodies will give you time at their meetings to speak, limited of course. They claim they cannot discuss things with the audience at meetings. This is a lie. They can but choose to hide behind rules that may or may not be in their local rules. Truth is they are afraid they will agree to something or say something that comes back to bite them later. If you or I have solutions for things they really do not want them!  Sorry.

Sincerely,

Pete Pfankuch

Crivitz
