The North Country National Scenic Trail is a great recreational attraction in the Northland. Hikers, joggers, skiers and hunters use the trail to enjoy our northern woods. The trail is used year around by local people and tourists. It runs across four counties in far northern Wisconsin. National trails are good for all of us, tourism and the economy.
Seventy-two years ago, the United States became the first and only country to use nuclear weapons. On Aug. 6 and Aug. 9 in 1945, we bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people.
The repeal of the Affordable Care Act has failed again. The Republican wrecking crew can't govern with complete control of all branches of government. Why?

Much has been written about Donald Trump being unqualified and unfit to be president. A delegate to the Republican convention said he didn't have the "experience, temperament or judgment" for the job. Now we know he doesn't have the maturity either. His campaign has been a series of offensive statements about immigrants, Muslims, women and his opponents. Now we know he brags about harassing women. We have had philanderers in the past but they didn't brag about it.
