Input sought from public for Pines’ health classes

Letter to the Editor:

In March, the Vilas County News-Review published a survey that had been distributed to students in health class at Northland Pines, asking teens to discuss with their parents the child’s feelings about engaging in risky sexual behavior. Many adults had concerns about some questions.

In April, the Northwoods Patriots hosted Julaine Appling of the Wisconsin Family Council

Reader offers insight on Walter E. Olson

Dear Editor:

While standing in awe at the base of a magnificent waterfall with my parents when I was just a little kid, who would have thought that some 55 years later I would be writing about the generous man who made those moments in time possible, as well as his American entrepreneurial spirit which is still at work to this very day inspiring people of all ages.

So in light of the ongoing dispute concerning Eagle River’s Olson Memorial Library,

Foundation wants input on future library needs

Letter to the Editor:

Planning for the revitalized and expanded Olson Memorial Library is well  under way. The foundation and the trustees again extend their thanks to the many individuals, couples, families, groups and organizations who have generously contributed.

Now we’d like you to tell us your vision for the new meeting wing and renovated areas. What are the good features we should keep? What should we be sure to add? What would make the library work best for the individuals and groups who use it today and will

Grazing horses present nice entrance to city

Letter to the Editor:

My wife, Christine, and I so much appreciate the north entrance on Highway 45 to our city. The past two years, the Rocking W Stables have pastured their beautiful horses at the intersection of Highway 45 and Highway G, north of the Best Western motel.

Those grazing horses always present

DNR deserves applause
for quick bag limit update

Despite a late spring and lingering spearing activity by the Chippewa tribes, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) found a way to get daily walleye bag limits adjusted for sport anglers prior to the monster Memorial Day weekend — a huge boost to tourism.

 

The daily limits were adjusted on 447 lakes statewide, including 270 lakes that reverted to the state’s general five-walleye daily bag. The big news here is that 207 of those 270 lakes are located in Vilas, Oneida and Forest counties.

 

Even if advanced word of the revised bag limits didn’t reach

Olson Library design vital to fundraising for expansion project

Letter to the Editor:

The Walter E. Olson Library Foundation wishes to clarify some misunderstandings regarding the proposed renovation and expansion of the library.

The Olson Library Foundation is a private, independent and stand-alone organization. It is unrelated to any governmental body. It has its own Articles of Incorporation and set of bylaws. These documents give the foundation authority to, among other things, receive gifts, hold property, invest funds and enter into contracts. When the foundation signs a contract, it signs on behalf of the foundation and no other entity.

When the previously contracted design firm of Durrant

Staff at local vets’ office stepped up to help friend

Letter to the Editor:

It seems that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can only get bad press these days. However, I chose to believe that the caregivers are doing the best they can under a tremendous workload, and it certainly appears that the problems are limited to a portion of the medical centers, not all.

I am not a veteran, so there would seem to be no reason for me to deal with the VA in any matter, but you just never know.

A short while ago, a good friend of mine, a World War II veteran,

Mayor says city following advice of attorneys

Dear Editor:

If only I?had known that the Eagle River City Council does not have to spend money on an attorney for legal advice. No, we could just go to the editorial board of the Vilas County News-Review.

That’s right, they now offer legal opinions. In fact, they will take any complicated legal issue, condense it into a “nutshell,” you swallow it with a large glass of water, (pay no attention to the choking) and everything is OK. See, no need to be “paranoid.”

What am I?talking about?

Well, it seems from last week’s opinion, the editorial board

Watch for turtles crossing roads

Dear Editor:

Turtles are crossing our roads to lay their eggs! It is completely unfair to run them over. Nothing makes me sadder than to see a squished turtle on the road.

Most roads they cross are country roads near wet areas. If you are in too much of a hurry to stop and help them cross the road, please drive around them!

Mayor, city should embrace opportunity

Dear Editor:

We’re almost speechless! We hardly know where to begin to express our astonishment that the Eagle River mayor and City Council are throwing obstacles in the path of the ongoing efforts of hundreds of people in several surrounding communities to build/remodel the library in this little town.

Though we’re relatively new to Eagle River, we’ve been very well aware that an immensely exciting fund-raising effort to expand the Walter E. Olson Library has been taking place for more than five years.

We have eagerly attended several public meetings
