Someone needs to recover giant log along shoreline

Letter to the Editor:

About three weeks ago, my wife and I?noticed a long, black object laying on the shoreline on the Sugar Camp Chain of Lakes.

We went out to investigate and found a tree, 39 feet long and 18 inches in diameter at the bottom end, that floated up on shore. Someone apparently cut all the branches off within 3 inches of the trunk.

I attached a cable to the small ends, and a chain and rope to the large end to prevent it from floating back out.

Leave the lights off

Letter to the Editor:

Seems that the Highway 45 streetlight controversy isn’t going away anytime soon.

Let’s go back a few weeks when the announcement was made by the town of Lincoln that they were going to turn the lights off on the north side of Eagle River to save cost. I was glad to hear this actually, because I could never understand the need for so much light in this area anyway.

That is one reason why this newspaper devotes a lot of attention to the deer hunt and just about every season for hunting, trapping and fishing, but there are other sound reasons for doing so.


These sports are some of the state’s most important recreational pursuits.

Do need commitment for national health care

Letter to the Editor:

Every day, it seems, the noise level surrounding the launch of Obamacare in-creases in intensity. There is virtually no one who does not believe that the problem with the law’s website is nothing short of disastrous and threatens the viability of the entire project.

Add to that the controversy over the president’s repeated claims that those existing policies would not be inconvenienced and you have real problems with defending the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Defending the law, however, is not my primary reason for writing

This looks like a dictatorship

Letter to the Editor:

Our government has forced Obamacare on the American citizens, which the majority of Americans do not or did not want this put in place. But as per business as usual under President Obama, our government did it anyway.

Now, the working people and middle class, of which is dwindling by the day, has to pay the bills for the illegals in our country.

Also, is our government now looking at making certain foods that we choose
