Eagle River also should turn off some lights

Letter to the Editor:

Your recent article about the town of Lincoln’s plans to turn off their portion of street lighting north of Eagle River was very thought provoking.

First, let me commend those Lincoln town leaders for taking appropriate action that should financially benefit all of their residents, without jeopardizing their safety.

Why does Eagle River diligently work to bring visitors to enjoy our natural beauty — that includes viewing the nighttime skies — need a Great White Way that brightly shows those arriving visitors the fastest way through town to find what we previously offered them

Sanctioning dogfights with wolf hunt

Dear Editor:

I am writing to you in hopes of spreading the word about something very disturbing that will soon be taking place in our state. I?feel my fellow taxpayers are entitled to the ugly truth.

When the wolf hunt commences this fall, Wisconsin will be the only state in the country to allow dogfighting.

Business goes extra mile to save precious videotapes

Dear Editor:

I?recently?experienced something dramatic in my life!

Have you ever experienced the loss of something tangible that is precious to your heart and that is irreplaceable?

Last Thursday night, after my family and I?went out for dinner, we were walking in the front door of our home and my husband, Tim, asked me what had happened to the box of videotapes that he put on the stairs of our deck Tuesday morning?

He then realized that our son,
