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....

Many thanks for success
The seventh annual Christmas market came to a close Dec. 10. We would like to thank the vendors, who were so willing to share the elements with us. The many people who stopped by, your support for our little market was greatly appreciated. Last but not least we would like to thank...

The election was rigged
I agree with Donald Trump — the election was rigged. An easy way to determine if he was right is an election audit. We have until Dec. 13 to get this done; contact your representative and tell them this must be done to prove the integrity of our election. An audit is not a recount,...

Settlement is not justice
I recently read that Natasha Lancour's lawsuit against the Superior Police Department was settled. I do not believe this settlement brings justice as the officer involved, George Gothner, still has his job. As was stated in the Telegram, Gothner and the other two officers on scene...

Politics gone awry
What is happening to our country's political system? Campaigns from state to national have been relegated to personal attacks. Democrats and Republicans are guilty — not all, but many are. I would like to see common sense and common decency prevail. I don't hear or see a lot...

Hoeft worthy of your vote
There are many reasons to elect Democrat Mary Hoeft to represent the 7th Congressional District: She is articulate, fair, and knowledgeable. She will make a strong voice in Congress because she has the ability and the desire to listen to and ask questions of her Republican opponents....
