Concerned for children riding bikes to school

Letter to the Editor:

I am concerned for the safety of the children riding their bikes to the Northland Pines schools in Eagle River.

When nice weather came about, late this spring, children were anxious to ride their bikes to school, as well as we adults wanting to do outside activities.

The speed limit is 15 mph entering the school property,

Against ATVs on town of Lincoln roads

Dear Editor,

On June 10, 2014, the Lincoln Town board abdicated their power to Mark Kirby, president of the Three Lakes Nicolet ATV Club, an Oneida County entity.

A year ago, the Three Lakes Nicolet ATV Club wanted the board to allow them to use Bloom Road and Loon Lake Road as an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) route to Eagle River.

Following empathetic support by the board regarding use of Lincoln

Kudos to those placing turtle signs

Letter to the Editor:

Hats off to the Three Lakes area Girl Scouts, the town of Three Lakes and conservation warden Pat Novesky for the new turtle crossing signs and pavement painting on our town roads. Nice job, folks.

Drivers, please heed the signs and give the terrapins a helping hand crossing the roads — or at the very least, please don’t run them over.

Now if we could just get the raccoons to leave their nests alone;

Cancer survivors deserve
the community’s support

The 15th annual Northwoods Relay For Life is scheduled this Friday, June 20, with a goal of raising $84,000 for the American Cancer Society and its research and education programs.

 

Raising that kind of money in the fight against cancer is extremely significant, but we would argue that the Relay For Life event serves an even greater purpose.

 

This year we are asking more people to attend the event not for the reason of raising additional funds,

Memorial Day programs in Vilas County top-notch

Letter to the Editor:

I want to take this opportunity to congratulate those who organized the ceremonies honoring veterans on Memorial Day in Eagle River and Phelps.

As a bagpipe player with the Greater Milwaukee Fire and Police Pipes and Drums, I have had the opportunity to participate in many ceremonies and will continue to participate in ceremonies honoring police, fire and military throughout Wisconsin; Colorado Springs, Colo.,

Walker moving state forward

Dear Editor:

Why fix something that has already been fixed? That’s what Mary Burke wants to do as governor. She would have grave consequences for Wisconsin and take us back to financial mismanagement.

As commerce secretary for Gov. James Doyle, she helped construct the 2007-’09 state budget that left the state with a $5.4 million shortfall. Money just doesn’t grow on trees, you know.

This ultimately left Gov. Doyle to raid over $1 billion  from

Woman stunned by act of kindness

Letter to the Editor:

I am an 85-year-old widow on Social Security who met a most generous gentleman in Trig’s grocery store on Friday, May 16.

As I was walking along pushing my cart, he came up to me and said, “You remind me so much of my mother, I?want to help you with your groceries.”

He then handed me a $100 bill

Please choose adoption over abortion

Letter to the Editor:

The second sentence in the Declaration of Independence has been called by historian Stephen E. Lucas one of the best-known sentences in the English language, containing “the most potent and consequential words in American history.”

Abraham Lincoln made this statement the centerpiece of his presidency. It is the core value of what it truly means to be an American.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,

Volunteers are the key
in fight to control AIS

There’s a lot of positive energy being spent in the fight to stop the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) in the North Woods, as town lake groups and lake associations champion the cause for education, prevention and treatment of existing infestations.

 

Protecting these incredible water resources from exotic plants and animals might be considered a no-brainer, but the work wouldn’t get done without a grassroots effort that relies on passionate volunteers. They are true conservationists, serving on the front

City Council is stuck on problem from past

Letter to the Editor:

I applaud your editorial of May 28 supporting the board of trustees and the Library Foundation of the Walter E. Olson Memorial Library here in Eagle River. Thank you for what you wrote.

Thank you, by the way, is apparently an expression not in the City Council’s vocabulary, as the council as a whole has never congratulated those involved for having presented the community with $2.6 million and the dynamic architectural plan that will revitalize our library.

We would have to look far and wide from Eagle River
