Challenges community to assist Mayor Hyslop

Letter to the Editor:

I was saddened to hear of Mayor Jeff Hyslop’s recent serious medical condition. I?have known Jeff since his childhood and he has always been a positive man and a community-minded person.

His inability to afford health insurance has created a tough situation for him and his wife, Donna. I guess it is our turn to give back in appreciation for Jeff’s service to the community and for his efforts in supplying the North Woods with a quality Christian book store.

Parent says Pines assignment provoked sex

Letter to the Editor:

I was taken back from a health assignment brought home by my son who goes to Northland Pines High School. The assignment titled “Am I Ready?” asks a series of questions that provoke and encourage sex.

It begins, “What are my morals and religious views about sex before marriage?” Followed by “How will I feel if I go against my beliefs?” I was surprised to see religious questions being asked re­garding sex. Where is the separation of church and state?

Another example, “Am I comfortable being naked with my partner

Numbers in proposed deer study explained

Letter to the Editor:

I am compelled to write this in an attempt to correct erroneous information your paper published March 5, in Ken Anderson’s article titled “DNR study could close 900 acres to hunting.”

This was followed by a mischaracterization of this study and of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) by Kurt Krueger in his “In the Outdoors” column March 12.

Note that I am not in any way affiliated with the DNR. I am a Land O’ Lakes resident and I own and live on a small parcel of wooded land very near the proposed deer browse study site described in Mr. Anderson’s article.

As a retired biologist with a fair amount of formal training in ecological

Wants public meeting on deer research plan

Letter to the Editor:

I read the article by Kurt Krueger regarding the De­partment of Natural Re­sources’ proposed deer re­search program on 900 acres of state-owned land south of Palmer Lake.

In the article he mentions a meeting in Boulder Junction where this program will be discussed.

I have tried to check into this meeting, but have not been able to

Take the help that is offered

Letter to the Editor:

I recently read a very disturbing article in last week’s News-Review. It was about the mayor of Eagle River being hospitalized with E. coli meningitis.

As I was reading this, I felt very sorry for the man and what he was going through,

Candidate fueling anger with inaccuracies

Letter to the Editor:

To the town of Lincoln voters and taxpayers:

Ms. Kara Vander Bloomen is on the April 1 ballot for the town of Lincoln supervisor position being vacated by Leon Kukanich. I urge you to direct your vote elsewhere.

So far, Ms. Vander Bloomen has insulted every person on the town board, including the secretary/treasurer. She sees what she wants to see, but doesn’t look past the numbers. She has posted on her Facebook page, but has deleted any negative comments.

The pay grade for our supervisors and chairman is reflected in

Every citizen has access
under public records law

This is Sunshine Week in America, a week-long celebration of laws that promote open government and enhance the public’s right to know — the foundation of a participatory democracy and a crucial part of our republic form of government.

 

In Wisconsin, vibrant “sunshine laws” such as the Public Records Law and the Open Meetings Law provide broad access to information about how our state and local governments operate, including the acts of public officers and employees.

 

Our readers should know that this newspaper and other media outlets have no special right

Letter to the Editor:

Open letter to the citizens of Vilas County:

To the citizens of the town of Cloverland-District 13, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for electing me to the Vilas County Board of Supervisors for the past eight years. I feel that I have served you to the best of my abilities and now it is time for someone else to serve.

To all the citizens of the county, it truly has been a rewarding

Candidate not informed on town government

Letter to the Editor:

In the March 5, 2014, edition of this publication, the editor saw fit to publish a letter from Kara Vander Bloomen that I and others saw as a free campaign ad.

Ms. Vander Bloomen stated that we should vote for her “if you want to shake things up and start making improvements.”

I would like to state that Ms. Vander Bloomen has not spoken to any town of Lincoln official directly about all of the problems that she feels exist in the town. Instead, she has seen fit to run a campaign on a social media site on the Internet that casts doubt on

Candidate sends a negative message

Letter to the Editor:

I use this means to thank Leon Kukanich for his dedication to the residents of the town of Lincoln the past 18 years. A plaque and the kind words presented at this month’s meeting were well deserved. He and the entire board continue to manage the budget well and have kept tax rates to the lower level in the county.

Thanks to the encouragement of the late Eleanor Gorz and the late Lola Inberg
