Editor:

If your house is burning, does it matter what they use to put it out? The same can be said with this virus. Contrary to major media, ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and regeneron are more effective, safer and cheaper than vaccines. So why the reluctance to use them?

When the covid vaccine came out last year the left said it was poison, along with hydroxychloroquine and wouldn't have anything to do with it until Biden was sworn in. Since then its been full steam ahead with vaccinations. And if you resister, you became an "enemy of the state".

If it were about saving lives, why weren't the two million illegals that entered our country the last nine months vaccinated? Why were vaccine exemptions given to congress and postal workers?

People up to twenty years old are bullet proof against this virus. The polio, measles, rubella and chicken pox vaccines were tested four years before use, but miraculously the covid vaccine is good to go after six months testing for children. Over ten thousand people have died from the vaccine and 500,000 had severe reactions. CDC website.

If life is precious to the left wing mob, why did the house pass an abortion bill that would allow abortions up to the time of birth, and call it an "act of love". These people are sick, Satan worshipping evildoers.

If I killed an unwanted dog or cat, I would be arrested for cruelty to animals.

We are in a spiritual battle - Christ versus Satan.

If you want God to bless America put God in your life.

When the people fear government you have tyranny. When the government fears the people, you have freedom.

Respectfully,

Robert Davis,

Town of Peshtigo

I wanted to share my thoughts of the Peshtigo Historical Day 150th weekend. WOW. My husband, Skip, and my daughter, Dawn, and I started the weekend off attending the dinner show at Embers 1871. From the time we arrived the decorations were just beautiful. We had a wonderful meal and were entertained by a fabulous group of individuals that put us back in 1871. We left their with chills all over thinking about all the suffering people and their families went through and what it took to get where we are today.

Saturday morning we were excited to attend the parade and we were not disappointed. Kris Karpowitz did a fantastic job and he made it look easy. After the parade we went to the park and could not believe the overwhelming number of people in the park. Everywhere I looked people were having fun. It was a proud day for Peshtigo and for the people who put all the work into making this day a huge success. That night watching the firework display, they were just beautiful.

Sunday morning Skip and I went to the Lumberjack breakfast. What a wonderful group of men and women. I read Mayor Malke's letter and she was so true about how she recognized both the Town and City of Peshtigo Fire Departments when she said, "What can I say about a group of individuals who display the most selfless act when they leave their families to protect ours, putting their lives on the line doing it". The breakfast was awesome and if you walked away hungry it was your own fault.

After the breakfast I went and served at the Historical Society Ice Cream Social. There was nothing but wonderful comments on all the actors who shared their stories from 1871. People toured the Museum and finished the day with a bowl of ice cream.

I wanted to share my thoughts about the weekend. I am proud to live in the City of Peshtigo and to see so many people come together to make the 蕦" a huge success. Thank you everyone who gave of their time, it has not gone by unnoticed.

In closing, my niece is Mayor Malke. Reading her letters thanking everyone, I noticed one name was missing, hers. Talking with her as plans were being made, she wanted everything perfect for the city and residents. I know the amount of time you spent making this past weekend a huge success. Thank you for everything you have done.

Thank You,

Kay Waddingham,

Peshtigo



Dear Editor:

I read with great delight of the Honor Flight taken recently by Eugene Frank. It brought back memories of the Honor Flight I took nearly 3-years ago.

Being a Veteran of the Korean Era, my son, Edward, who was my guardian, accompanied me on the only flight that departed from Green Bay to Washington, D.C. to commemorate 100 years of the Green Bay Football Packers Franchise. Each member of the group received a thank you letter from the Packers President Mark Murphy and the Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach.

There were many Veterans including 2 from WWII, many Korean Vets and Vietnam Military Vets. Also many retired Green Bay Packer players that I conversed with, Lynn Dickey, Mark Tauscher, Mark Rivera, Paul Kaufman and others who appreciated our military service.

It was a very long, but very enjoyable day with a water cannon salute upon landing at the airport in DC. We enjoyed visiting many historic monuments in our nation's capital! Including Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Mail Call was a delightful time for leaving DC that brought happy memories from family and residents thanking each of us for our service time in which I was drafted and served 2 years in the Army. I agree with Eugene Frank that how fortunate we are and thank God for Life of Freedom in our great country in the USA.

Upon arrival in Green Bay, about 8:30 p.m. we were greeted by hundreds of people expressing thanks and appreciation for serving our country which included family holding signs, I especially cherished the one from my great-granddaughter saying Thanks with Love that brought a tear in my eye.

A day I will never forget of the activities well planned by the Honor Flight Committee expressing thanks for our military service.

Ted Sauve,

Marinette



Dear Editor:

Take the shot, wear a mask, show us that you care about all of us.

Our innocent unvaccinated children are in danger. They can't get the shot which will protect them from a viciously deadly virus. They look to you for protection. Will you protect them? They think so. So do I. My parents protected me along with every school system that I attended in Minnesota and North Dakota. Many years later I live a healthy life in Michigan without any leftover virus infection effects. I am proof that childhood vaccinations work.

I remember when I got my first-grade school vaccination. It was a polio vaccination on a sugar cube. And yes, we didn't have a choice because it was a public mandated safety vaccination. I didn't get polio. I have since lived a full and healthy life. After the sugar cube we were vaccinated with needles. A few of us in the lines cried, threw up, and passed out. But we were vaccinated. There was no exception.

I also remember that when we moved every three years for my father's job I had to show my vaccination card to every school before I was allowed into any classroom. We were safe. Parents and school systems protected us.

Now, about 60 years later, people won't take the shot? What happened to reverse the mandated public safety vaccination of my childhood that saved many generations of children from polio, small pox, and several other virulent viruses?

Here is what is happening. A virus is mutating out of control in our unvaccinated bodies. This virus is killing us at a frightening rate and threatens our unvaccinated children because some of us refuse the shot and won't mask when in the public.

We live in a public society where we all take care of each other. If you can't care about us by performing your civic duty with vaccination and masking then you are breaking our trust in you. If your public activity continues to indicate a lack of concern for the safety of others, then expect stricter laws.

Our current public laws regarding vaccination and masking are obviously suggestions and rely on your moral choices and cooperation. If antivaxing and unmasking continues and a rapidly mutating pandemic virus kills us at increasing rates, then soon public safety laws will strengthen. Case in point: seat belts, helmets, speed limits, running red light laws, opposing lane driving laws.

Your personal decision regarding your vaccination and masking affects our daily lives and future public safety laws.

The most innocent of us need you to protect them from a murderous assault.

Take the shot, wear the mask, show us that you care.

Bill Blair

Dear Editor: 

It appears that the games of hiding things from the public and the media is still going on with the Crivitz School Board. They had a special meeting to accept the retirement of the of the District Administrator and offer employment to a new one. The notice had two different dates on it. There was no public input. Very short if any public notice. The PT newspaper reporter that attends their meetings was surprised and disappointed she missed it. I am pretty sure the parents and voters had no idea what was going on secretly. Even I did not. These are all paid elected positions. You would think educated people could get the day/dates correct or catch their mistakes wouldn't you?  Makes a person wonder what other things are being done secretly  . . . . . .  Getting a new school board president was not enough it seems.  

So this time a couple recalls is not enough. It is time for a house cleaning of the entire Crivitz School Board.  They should all resign. Unfortunately by the time you read this they will have likely had another special meeting to fix the day/date screw up since I pointed out the error to the school board president on Tuesday late afternoon. If they did they will be avoiding public input again.  Are you Crivitz parents and voters keeping track?  We all should be. Maybe you want to call the school district office?  The number is 715-854-2721 Option 7.

Sincerely,

Pete Pfankuch.

Crivitz



Our Awesome God

I see God's beauty around me,

In sky, and sea, and plain.

I feel His presence near me,

In the gentle breeze and rain.

I know that he is awesome

With none can be compared...

Yet when I really need a friend,

My Precious Lord is there.



"Whenever"

Whenever your lonely

Discouraged or blue,

Always remember that

God loves you.

And that He is only

A prayer away.

And His prayer line is open,

Both night and day.

So whisper a little prayer

To Him.

He'll send your sunshine

From within.

He'll give you strength

And courage too,

To carry on and

See you through.



Poems by Joyce Bedora,

former Peshtigo Resident
