Hats off to local brewers

Letter to the Editor:

Congratulations to Bill Summers and Marc O’Brien of the Tribute Brewing Company on the celebration of their first year as a brewer in Eagle River and the state of Wisconsin.

As a member of a brewing family now in its sixth generation of brewing beer in Wisconsin, I can only think back to those first 400 barrels brewed by my great-great- grandfather Jacob in Chippewa Falls.

Bill and Marc are brewing some pretty darned good beers and have garnered local support of their taphouse and beers as something fun and special.  It is another reason to love the North Woods.

Nothing is the same anymore

Letter to the Editor:

Why did the Veterans Administration (VA) stop 50-plus school children from giving out Christmas cards at the VA hospital?

The people who escorted these children to the hospital to distribute the Christmas cards were told this was their policy and therefore couldn’t pass out the Christmas cards! America, these are men and women who have been injured fighting to keep us safe and free.

Trail not needed along highway

Letter to the Editor:

I stand with Tom and Karen Martens on their position against the snowmobile trail on their property. Wisconsin has 25,000 miles of trails. I don’t think they need another 100 yards.

What happened to peace and quiet?

With all the snowmobile trails, where do they ride? On the shoulders of the highway instead of the trails.

Suing over ObamaCare exemptions

Letter to the the Editor:

Monday, Jan. 6, I filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin to make Congress live by the letter of the health-care law it imposed on the rest of America.

By arranging for me and other members of Congress and their staffs to receive benefits intentionally ruled out by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the administration has exceeded its legal authority.

The president and his congressional supporters have also broken their promise to the American people that ObamaCare was going to be so good that they would participate in it just like everyone else. In truth, many members of Congress feel entitled to an exemption from the harsh realities of the law
