What is human life worth?
In the Pre-Trump era, I often thought, "Why does the U.S.A. have to play "police" for the world?" From a fiscal conservative view, I think it is logical that we should get paid for this work or stop doing it. God knows, we have our own American issues to fix. There is little doubt...

Fine doesn't cover death
As a worker myself, I would want Douglas County to investigate a charge of negligent homicide in the death of a shipyard fellow worker by Fraser Shipyards. Does a $12,000 citation to cover this tragedy? It is obvious that companies are not adhered to the same laws applied to workers....

Wisconsin needs EPA
Recently, there has been an all-out effort by Congressman Sean Duffy, R-Weston, to do away with the Environmental Protection Agency. As a person who enjoys living in Wisconsin, I must say that I, and many others, are against this measure. This is due to the impact that it will have...

Trump's priorities won't make us great
President Trump's recently proposed budget provides several examples of the truly frightening direction that our country is headed. Trump proposes huge cuts in medical research, programs for the elderly, funding for the arts, environmental protection and public TV and radio. This...

Hagen a 'true gentleman'
I've known Bruce Hagen for many years, ever since he was first elected mayor of Superior. He's always been a true gentleman, and I can only wish him well. Come to think of it, he hasn't been that bad of a mayor for Superior. I hope his successor lives up to Bruce's abilities.

Spring's a good time to change habits
Where is global warming when we need it? I do look forward to the first day of spring, balmy weather and flowers in bloom. The first day of spring is actually a perfect opportunity to turn over a new leaf in our personal habits — to clean house, to jog outdoors, and to replace...

Fennessey puts people first
I would like to say a few things about one of your candidates for mayor. No, I am not a resident of Superior, but I have dealt with this candidate for a long time. I have been a customer of his for well over five years. I have been a businessman for over 50 years and dealt with all...

Superior needs Dave & Buster's
Lots of people think that we should have a Dave & Buster's because it will bring people over there to eat food and play arcade games and for children to try new foods at Dave & Buster's. The people of Superior will like the idea that there will be a Dave & Buster's here in Superior...

Alternative view of the facts
It has taken a few days to respond to the Feb. 7 letter "Political abuse ends with Trump." It's an interesting account of life in an alternate universe wherein the inhabitants deal with "alternate facts." My laughing fit lasted so long, it took time to recover. Ludicrous is too mild...

So much for fiscally responsible
I was elected four times to the Wisconsin State Senate from the eight counties of northwestern Wisconsin as a Republican. The Republican Party used to be the political party for people who were concerned about fiscal responsibility. I guess the Republican Party I belonged to no longer...

Paine shows character
Just a few words about why you need a mayor with character. Although I do not follow politics closely, I did want to share my experiences in working for Jim Paine. I want everyone to know what kind of leader he truly is. His values and character speak volumes to what Jim is about....

Lies roust relationship building
I attended the Jan. 16 town hall meeting hosted by Rep. Sean Duffy in Solon Springs. The well-run event remained civil, despite differing views on many issues. Kudos to Rep. Duffy for meeting with constituents at this grass roots level, and to those who organized the event and kept...

Broken promise to rural America
During my 2016 run for Congress, I listened as retirees shared their fear that Social Security would disappear. For rural Americans who depend on Social Security as their main source of income in retirement, that fear was understandable. If you are one of those Americans, read on....
