Eagles display sportsmanship PDF Print E-mail

Dear Editor:
I have been attending many of the Northland Pines lady Eagles basketball games this season. While many of the coaches from the visiting teams are yelling and screaming at their girls, Pines coach Larry Bergum remains calm and cool and you never see or hear him getting upset with what the Eagles are doing.
The sportsmanship of the Eagles team is evident when you see the players shaking the referees’ hands after the game. All this was especially evident in the recent game against Medford when the game went into overtime.  Hats off to coach Bergum and the lady Eagles for their fine performances.

Retailer group urges state sales tax holiday

Dear Editor:
Doesn’t the state of Wisconsin need an economic boost in these tough times to provide welcome tax relief for working families and stimulus to the state’s economy? How can this happen? State legislators are working right now on legislation to do just that by way of a sales tax holiday the first weekend of August on back-to-school items.

Acts of kindness have no cost PDF Print E-mail

Letter to the Editor:
Random Acts of Kindness Week is Feb. 10-16. Please consider carrying out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, and hopefully one day someone might do the same for you.
Paying it forward is easy, doesn’t cost anything and it feels great.

Legislators should reject the deer unit changes

The Natural Resources Board has approved sweeping deer management changes that include the elimination of in-person deer registration and the realignment of management unit boundaries to county lines — both of which we urge legislators to reject when they review the rules.
As stated by George Meyer, executive director of the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation that represents more than 100 conservation and hunting organizations, it makes perfectly good sense to retain deer management units that are easily definable because they were established using highways and rivers, not today’s somewhat invisible county borders.

Food service policies explained for Pines

Letter to the Editor:
As the food service director for Aviands Food & Services Management in the Northland Pines School District, I recently had the opportunity to participate in a policy committee meeting to review the school board policy defining negative food service account balance procedures.
An article written in the News-Review by a freelance writer in attendance at this meeting caused some community response. I would like to clarify for the community the information presented by Mr. Ken Anderson.
The committee discussed the food service negative account balance policy. All members were in full agreement that all students be allowed to have lunch, regardless of the extent of a negative account balance.
