JUST THE FACTS

An article circulated to the media by Carol Lamp, President of the Wisconsin Retired Educators Association (WREA), says they are a non-partisan organization. Campaign donations suggest the educators are very partisan. The National Education Association, the American Federation of Teachers (1990-2010) and Wisconsin-Education (1999-2011) contributed $55,562,100 to the Democrats and only $2,955,200 to the Republicans.

Carol Lamp says they decry the political process where decisions are made along party lines according to a blueprint that emphasizes power and control. When a vote was scheduled in the Senate on an issue that the teachers and public employees didn’t like, they stormed the State Capitol, messed up the building and threw the democratic process out the window. The Democratic Senators galloped off to Illinois so they didn’t have to vote. Running away is radical and cowardly.

Carol Lamp complains about how the budget cuts hurt the different segments of our communities while giving large tax breaks to corporations and the wealthy. Almost half of the people pay no taxes and the top ten percent pay most of the taxes. That is why the overtaxed businesses are leaving our state along with the jobs.

If the teachers and public employees are not satisfied with the benefits the taxpayers offer, they can join the business sector and get all those large tax breaks they would have you to believe. I would suggest they try farming. The farmers work from early morning to late at night, seven days a week. Compare that to teaching 185 days per year with the summers off. In private business that would be considered a part-time job. The farmers and business people butter their own bread, they don’t get free health insurance and retirement plans paid by others. They pay their own.

The majority voted to send Governor Walker to Madison to clean up the financial mess and union control of our legislators. The business people and Governor Walker are pulling the wagon to bring business back to Wisconsin. There are too many malcontents riding in the wagon.

To the Editor:

As chair of this year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Marinette committee, I would like to thank the residents of Marinette for their unwavering generosity and support. Sixteen teams participated in this year’s event and raised $43,383.30 to help the Society’s fight for every birthday, threatened by every cancer, here and throughout the world.

This outstanding show of support proves that the people of Marinette stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the American Cancer Society to achieve its mission of saving lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures, and fighting back.

We were honored to be joined by 45 survivors who walked the opening Survivor Lap, officially kicking off this year’s event. These survivors are the reason we continue the fight. Their participation inspires hope in those currently battling cancer.

A special thank you to all Relay attendees who joined together and brought almost 150 non-perishable food items to help weight the Luminaria bags. Following the closing ceremonies, all food items were donated to local food pantries.

A special thanks to the many Relay For Life volunteers who worked to make this event a success celebrating the lives of those who have battled cancer, remembering loved ones lost, and pledging to fight back against the disease. The Relay For Life committee did a fantastic job of putting the event together.

We are grateful to Marinette High School for their willingness to host the event. We also appreciate the generosity of this year’s corporate sponsors. Relay For Life would not be possible without them. Corporate sponsors are Thyssen Krupp Waupaca, Aurora BayCare Medical Center, Bay Area Medical Center, Marinette Marine Corporation, Eagle Herald, Peshtigo Times, All American Dream Homes, Biehl Construction, Karl Schmidt Unisia, Northern Lights and Rennes Health.

You may get involved with Relay For Life at any time. Call 1-800-227-2345 for more information.

Ruth Thielen,

Marinette

Judy Alwin, Logging & Heritage Festival Chairman, stated from the perilous efforts of a group gathered on April 5, the first annual Logging and Heritage Festival became a reality. Ideas and activities came together with the help of many people but due to the lack of time, the group was unable to seek grant monies this year. With the generous donations from local businesses, concerned citizens and community organizations, the successful festival provided a unique family-oriented event. A flourishing of dedicated people made it happen.

She thanks all who assisted in the planning and staging of the festival. Each one provided a unique wealth of information in helping make it all come together.

The sponsors were: Gold - Marinette Marine; Silver - Kimberly Clark and Marinette County Tourism Alliance; and Silver - Flipside Coin Machine, Silvan Industries and Stephenson National Bank.

Others were Marinette Lions, Marinette Kiwanis, Marinette Elks, Mayor Bob Harbick, Wisconsin Public Service, Thyssenkrupp Waupaca Foundry, Country Inn & Suites, Marinette Fuel & Dock, Thielen Funeral Home, Bay Shore Credit Union, Frank’s Logging, Inspectech Corporation, Great Lakes Custom Tool Mfg., Motor Co., Bayshore Kennels, E.P. Olsen Machine Co., Whiskey & Women - Joe Grinsteiner and Mulligans.



Dear Editor:

Thank you for printing my story about “Lisel and Loki.” Lisel’s mother Barbara was the sister of Maria Bohmann Theilmann, whose Civil War husband will be honored in October. She is the “Auntie Tillman” who had the boarding house mentioned in my story. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and I must try to come to Marinette for this ceremony.

My family history records had the Americanized spelling of “Matthew Tillman,” so this is the first time I have known the German spelling. Please have Pat Beyer, a great-granddaughter of Mathias and Maria Thielmann, contact me.

With many sincere thanks,

Cynthia L. Hallen

Editor:

There was another accident at the intersection of Highway 41 and Country Meadow Rd. near Marinette. There should be a safety study of this intersection. There is a blind spot for a car coming out of Country Meadow Rd. and intending to turn south on 41. If there is a car going north on 41 with their turn signal on to turn right by the Shell Service Station the car intending to turn south on 41 may feel it’s safe to go. But there is a blind spot because of the angle and sitting further back and they may not see another car in the left lane on 41 going north.

Also they could enforce the speed limit in this area. The speed limit goes down to 45 mph but hardly anyone slows down.
