Let’s license cats too

Letter to the Editor:

The headline reads: “Vilas County ramps up effort to boost dog license compliance.” One would think that dogs are the only pet in the county, what about cats?

Lost Paws always has lost cats, so it seems there are a few living in the county. Since I spend a couple hundred dollars each year to keep my dog properly vaccinated and protected against the various tick borne illnesses, plus have him micro­chipped and licensed,

News reporting is outstanding

Letter to the Editor:

Just a note to thank all of the news reporters for doing such an outstanding job of reporting on local political and educational news in our area.

The reporting is factual and concise and I, for one, appreciate that. Thanks a bunch and keep up the good work!
