Hold Milroy accountable for wolf vote
On Jan. 17, Representative Nick Milroy (D-South Range) caved to animal special interest groups in Madison and voted not to recommend passage of a bill which would pressure Congress to delist the wolf from the Endangered Species List. Rep. Milroy has stood firm in his stance even though...

Veteran begins 40th year with Salvation Army
Today, Jan. 1, 2018, is a special day for me. I had Rev. Andrew Ricci of Cathedral Church of Superior come to my house and give me holy confession and Holy Communion. Also, I began my 40th year with the Salvation Army in my hometown, volunteering. I am very proud to say this, as this...

Enough liberal musings already
I have decided to cancel my subscription to the Superior Telegram in protest to the ongoing blatant, liberal-slanted musings by Bernie Hughes. I believe this is the only way to protest against a publication that continues to print liberal tripe without any offsetting views. In previous...

Labor Day is a perfect time to honor the men and women who have worked to create the great country in which we live. On Memorial Day, May 29, we honored the veterans and others who have fallen and thus it is on Labor Day when we honored the laborers who have built the United States...

'Smoggy skies act' heads to Senate
Summer ozone season is in full swing, yet the U.S. House of Representatives just passed a harmful bill that would delay life-saving ozone standards. Sadly, Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., voted for it. Now it's critical that the Senate oppose it.

County should follow its rules
I am the goat herder contracted by Douglas County to remove invasive buckthorn plants in Lucius Woods County Park and the owner of the goats the Telegram used for its front-page picture and article Aug. 1. When I learned late last spring the County Forestry Committee was planning...

Imagine only one paper
The mostly blank front page of the Telegram told me that I should "Imagine a week without local news." I have imagined it, and so should you. It's really easy if you try. Superiorites get the news delivered to their doorstep two days a week. The other five days you might as well just...

A truly superior experience
Take me out to the ball game, that's what families did Friday evening (July 21) to watch Guns and Hoses play softball. The firefighters won the second annual game with a rousing rally in the bottom of the ninth inning. However, the wonderful part of the evening was watching the laughter,...

Law leads to fewer ships in ports
The sight of salties arriving at the Duluth-Superior port may become less frequent after a Canadian action on the so-called "cabotage law" was initiated by the Seafarers Union. Agreements of trade with Europe, to avoid cabotage laws, included issuing green cards to foreign crews,...

Gloves come off for gardening
Lately my hands have taken a beating, and I have no one to blame but myself. It happens around this time each year. Spring has sprung and all that jazz. With spring comes gardening and gardening comes with a cost — to my poor bare hands.

Trump budget jeopardizes Americans
President Trump's budget hammers the poor and forward-looking programs in order to increase military spending and build a wall, but not roads and bridges. Trump proposes to cut sources that keep us strong inside and outside our borders while building up an arsenal for more conflict,...
