Wondering why no cure for cancer

Letter to the Editor:

To the people:

Do we ever wonder why so many of us are getting cancer? We have donated billions of dollars to cancer research, but are we any closer to a cure? Whatever happened to the “War on Cancer” during Lyndon Johnson’s time?

I believe we are always having better and better treatments, but I?want to put my donations into finding a cure.

I?am overjoyed for all of the wonderful people who are in cancer remission,

It’s easy to play with numbers to support false conclusions

Letter to the Editor:

A couple weeks ago, Mr. Gullan was praising Gov. Scott Walker for his sound policies and their effect on job growth in Wisconsin.

ATVs on county roads
requires a lot of caution

Use of county highways for all-terrain vehicle (ATV) routes are part of proposals in both Vilas and Oneida counties — something that should be allowed only under controlled, safe circumstances and should be decided on a case-by-case basis.

 

In Oneida, the Three Lakes Nicolet ATV?Club is proposing to use County Highway A between Three Lakes and Sugar Camp as a designated route. The proposal has town board approval but still needs county approval, including the highway commissioner’s blessing.

 

Because Highway A is a hilly, curvy road
