School choice not a threat

Dear Editor:

School choice in Wisconsin is often discussed in terms of policies that provide students with educational options, but we overlook the fact that teachers are also given options in their career choices as part of the school choice platform.

In creating a profession fit for 2014, teachers in Wisconsin and across the country have begun to take advantage of environments like independent public charter schools and virtual schools like never before.

As a virtual school teacher in Wisconsin, I couldn’t be more thrilled by the advancement in

New Year’s resolutions must focus on elections

Letter to the Editor:

As we take stock of the year just past and look forward to the new, we find that for most Americans the recession is still very much with us and attempts to redistribute income, in the mistaken belief that the economy would be reinvigorated, have proved ineffectual.

The Affordable Healthcare Act has become a fiasco that might well turn into a disaster, affecting at least one-sixth of our economy as it rolls out to full implementation. And nothing whatever has been done to stimulate a resurgence of business and private-sector jobs.

On the contrary, the administration continues to add tax burden and regulatory

Washington lawmakers are destroying this nation

Letter to the Editor:

Over the past few years, it has become apparent that hypocrisy has overcome decency and common sense in Washington, D.C. The administration, as well as most legislators, have adopted this sorry trait in lieu of truth and civility when it comes to serving the country and her citizens.

Now that the president has announced his agenda for this legislative session, we can expect to witness the worst possible hypocritical rhetoric imaginable. Our “poor defenseless children” will be used over and over by the liberal progressives to prove how heartless the conservatives are during the upcoming gun debate.

Saddened by Boeing contract, Walker vote

Letter to the Editor:

I’ve been saddened and puzzled by recent events in Seattle, where I’ve lived for the past 25 years, and in Eagle River, where I’ve been a summer resident for 77 years.

My sadness is due to the loss of financial security for older citizens who have accepted reduced compensation and will lose pension income following their retirements.

Why did the Boeing Co. force workers to accept reduced pension benefits and why did Eagle River voters support a governor who reduced net compensation and eliminated collective bargaining for state workers?

In Seattle, Boeing negotiated a severe contract with 25,000 workers who manufacture the fast-selling 777
