DNR deserves applause
for quick bag limit update

Despite a late spring and lingering spearing activity by the Chippewa tribes, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) found a way to get daily walleye bag limits adjusted for sport anglers prior to the monster Memorial Day weekend — a huge boost to tourism.

 

The daily limits were adjusted on 447 lakes statewide, including 270 lakes that reverted to the state’s general five-walleye daily bag. The big news here is that 207 of those 270 lakes are located in Vilas, Oneida and Forest counties.

Olson Library design vital to fundraising for expansion project

Letter to the Editor:

The Walter E. Olson Library Foundation wishes to clarify some misunderstandings regarding the proposed renovation and expansion of the library.

The Olson Library Foundation is a private, independent and stand-alone organization. It is unrelated to any governmental body. It has its own Articles of Incorporation and set of bylaws.

That’s right, they now offer legal opinions. In fact, they will take any complicated legal issue, condense it into a “nutshell,” you swallow it with a large glass of water, (pay no attention to the choking) and everything is OK. See, no need to be “paranoid.”

Well, it seems from last week’s opinion, the editorial board

Watch for turtles crossing roads

Dear Editor:

Turtles are crossing our roads to lay their eggs! It is completely unfair to run them over. Nothing makes me sadder than to see a squished turtle on the road.
