Letter to Editor:

The ownership of BPM has had concerns about access to the property since purchasing the property in 2005. Local management has worked with ownership and the community to keep the property open for the annual "Walleye" run. But in recent years it has become a nuisance and potential liability due to the following reasons:

Trash left behind along the river and across the property;

Fish guts thrown behind buildings and along tree lines;

Newly planted pine seedlings run over by fishermen vehicles and trailers;

Vehicles crossing truck loading docks and access points;

People walking behind moving semis and interfering with our product movement;

Abusive language toward our employees;

Beer bottles and cans, soda bottles, food scraps left under the mill near river access;

Vehicles parked in areas affecting material delivery and pickup;

Semi-trailer parking area used as a "race track" by the public;

Increased vehicle flow in the immediate area due to the recent completion and operation the BPM Water Resource Recovery Facility;

An instance where an individual took pieces of plywood off of a building and built a fire under one of the outlying buildings to warm up.

We understand the concerns of the community as we are fishing enthusiasts ourselves. Thank you for your cooperation.

Jim Koronkiewicz

General Manager



Dear Editor,

March 24th was a good day for democracy, at the Town of Peshtigo, Plan Commission meeting.  A room filled with town residents, with questions and concerns over the proposed rezoning of residential property on Rader Road.  The currently vacant land is in close proximity to the intersection of Rader and Roosevelt roads.  A plan was proposed to rezone 4.5 acres from residential use with the desire to build storage units.  Although no specific plan was presented at that time to the commission, unofficially, 4 possible building with 48 units each for a total of 192 units was mentioned.  The Developer identified the need for storage units, but like Dollar stores, how many does a community need?  Take your extra "stuff" to Goodwill, or St. Vincent De Paul, let some good come of it.  Quoting Elsa, from the Disney movie Frozen, LET IT GO!  Town of Peshtigo is an excellent place to live or visit.  I suggest you come for a stroll or ride you bicycle down the many rural roads.  Come view the farm fields, woods, and numerous wildlife and enjoy the beauty of this peacefully, quiet, friendly area.

B. Ceranski



Letter to Editor:

I am a retired school teacher who had many disagreements with administrators and therefore I have a very open mind on this Kelly Casper situation. As a grandparent, I even had some minor issued with Kelly along with some positive issues. She took her job very seriously and didn't hid in her office. when I was a teacher, prior to her hire, I was twice taken off of noon hour patrol because I found too many student violations which cased extra work for the administrator. Many times I've seen administrators go out of their way to not find problems that they knew existed. I've had an administrator refuse to let the sheriff's department bring in a drug sniffing dog for practice to check lockers. I've seen administrators leave the school during activities when problems could happen. These scenarios were NOT characteristic of Kelly.

I see no difference in what Kelly did compared to detention halls after school or in-school suspensions with sitting in a small room off the office alone. She obviously didn't for no reason pick these students out of the air to search. What was the length of time these students were detained? I'm guessing less than 15 minutes.

Do we want students to be able to bring drugs, guns, knives, etc. into our school knowing they can't be searched? What will other administrators refuse to do such as turning a blind eye for fear of losing their jobs or litigation? This is a large step to what happened to the police in liberal cities such as defunding them.

I see no concern of these parents who are complaining except for the possibility of their kids vaping substances of unknown ingredients which long term, will do more harm than what they're alleging. How about the effects this will have on the total school to keep drugs out of the school. Do we want our kids to be able to go to the bathrooms and vape or do drugs? Or do you want them to put peer pressure on other students to vape or be exposed to these things? If I had a student at Suring, I'd be sleeping a lot better knowing that I was sending my child to a drug free environment. Our schools are to teach our students a variety of educational subjects so they can become good citizens and educated leaders for generations to come - not be become drug addicts and rebelling against authority.

Several people have told me that this whole situation smells of the liberal political ideas coming out of Madison. It's a way of getting their "woke" agenda into a smaller community,

Concerned Old Teacher, Parent, and Grandparent who is concerned where our society is going.

Editor:

Marinette residents:

We have made great progress in our city and the community we live in. We have faced challenges and worked to improve our city assets and provide services to city residents. But over the past year we have become more divided as a council, at times not willing to show basic civility and even making personal attacks on our city staff. As Mayor, I am troubled to see all the progress we have made swayed by negativity.

One alderperson is suing the city for their belief that council procedures were incorrect. Another new candidate running for council has filed a legal claim against the city to pay damages as a result of high water, yet lives in a flood plain prone to water issues as stated by the Corps of Army Engineers. We need to work cooperatively as a council vs. individually.

Routinely, I see comments trying to discount anyone who has alternate opinions, asks questions, or brings up concerns for Marinette residents. The Town of Peshtigo is actively working with the City of Peshtigo to receive municipal water, and each will need to determine the financial impact and long-term concerns related. Remember, at the end of the day someone must pay for whatever the decisions are regarding water options and regardless of what is quoted, JCI/TYCO will not pay forever. Added lawsuits will surely cause further delays.

Many times, I find myself saying, "Reasonable people can find reasonable solutions." We have many, many positives and more to do but need the support of those who want to see us continue to create growth and improvements such as the Community REC Center, Mall redevelopment, and downtown improvements just to name a few. Your vote matters and understanding the issues is important. Let's continue our growth, stop all the political ill will, and work for the people of Marinette.

Steve Genisot

Marinette Mayor



Dear Editor:

In the coming days Peshtigo School District residents will be receiving a survey from the Peshtigo School District. The information from the survey will assist your school board members efforts in planning for a possible November 2022 referendum to address the facility and learning program needs of our students. It is an opportunity for your voice to be heard.

Over the past four years, I have received a lot of input from individuals who are grandparents, parents, students, business owners, civic leaders, and those who do not have children in the school system. Most agree that the current facility does not meet the students' needs for a safe, secure, and accessible learning space. The comment heard most often "something has to be done!"

But that "something" has been the sticking point when it comes to a referendum vote. Some want a new building, others want a remodel and renovation, some believe the improvements should be paid through the current operational budget, and others have provided non-conventional ideas. And there are some who believe the status quo does meet the needs of the students.

By completing the survey, you are helping us find the right "something" at a price point that the majority of the community will support.

An informational meeting is being held on April 5th at 6 pm at the Peshtigo Elementary Learning Center. At this meeting you will have the opportunity to learn more and ask questions about the priority areas, tax impact, and/or facility/programming space needs.

Your Partner in Education;

Patrick Rau

Superintendent
