Vote to get things done
In response to a recent editorial by State Senator Janet Bewley, "Legislating the way it ought to be," Sen. Bewley appears to present herself as bipartisan. A look at her voting record indicates she is anything but bipartisan. From Jan. 1, 2017 to Feb. 20 of this year, Sen. Bewley...

A failed budget proposal
Donald Trump proposes to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy and giant corporations by cutting programs for the poor, the elderly and quality of life for all. Medicare funding is cut $266 billion, Medicaid $1.1 trillion, Social Security $72 billion over 10 years; food stamps reduced,...

Learned lesson favors peace
I have written pieces about the futility of war before, and I was pleased to see, "A Canadian's view" in the June 8 issue of the Duluth News Tribune. He ended his piece with words spoken by President Franklin Roosevelt, my first American president whom I remember fondly, when he...

Rhetoric aside, let's solve school shootings
No doubt, I'll take a beating over this letter, but so be it. Another horrible school shooting — more dead children — another round of political viewpoints obliterating the "how" and "why" it happened. Like the mob in the original "Frankenstein" movie back in the 1930s,...

Legislating the way it ought to be
It doesn't happen often enough at the State Capitol, but it did last week. For at least one bill, on one day, the legislative process worked the way it is supposed to, the way that fourth-graders across the state are told it works when they study Wisconsin government. That's good...

Show local support for gas plant
As a resident of Douglas County for my entire life, much of it in Superior, I can say for a fact that opportunities like this do not come around every day. In fact, the Nemadji Trail Energy Center (NTEC) will be the largest private investment in the history of Douglas County and...

Act now on guns: it's overdue
Once again we have witnessed the heartbreaking and senseless loss of lives by an angry, sick person with a gun. As the rest of us share the pain of the families and victims in Florida, we can't even begin to fathom the depth of loss they feel. Seventeen individuals, loved by family...

Love happens at any age
Why, when we get to a certain age, do young people get disgusted when we do the thing we did before they were born — hold hands? It is publicly accepted for the young ones to hold hands, hold the other by the waist. Accept the fact, the reason you're here is because hands were...

Baldwin hero for democracy
To those who may support a burgeoning dictatorship, a fascist administration that promotes hate by labeling Nazis our parents, grandparents or great-grandparents died fighting as "fine people" and hypocritically caters to those who would turn our secular democracy into a theocracy...

You snooze, you lose. It is so very important that everyone in the community not snooze through this upcoming "sleeper" election Feb. 20, the Wisconsin spring primary. You ask, "What is the big deal?" I ask, "Is your state Supreme Court important to you?" And then upcoming next on...
