Letter to Editor:

My name was mentioned in your article regarding a walking path in the Town of Brazeau, and I would like to correct a couple of statements in it.

Four or five years ago it appeared that Paul Peterson was attempting to annex the walking path property to his lot. The lot lines were obliterated and he treated the walkway like his yard. In fact, it looked like he had actually built his blacktopped driveway on town property. I asked the Town Board to survey and mark the lines for the walkway to be sure.

Last spring, the Town finally surveyed the walking path, and sure enough, Paul had stolen ten and one-half feet with his blacktopped driveway. Chairman Wendt proposed placing a post at each lot corner along the trail. Posts were erected, however, there were none on side of the trail. The Board passed a resolution to place additional posts on the other side of the trail and to send a letter to Paul Peterson to remove his driveway from town property.

Chairman Wendt refused to put any posts on the corners of Paul Peterson’s lots and to order him to remove his remove his driveway from town property.

At the meeting on September 18, Chairman Wendt asked the Board to repeal the resolution for 10 more posts, stating he did not feel a need for them. The part of the resolution asking for removal of private property was ignored after this resolution was passed.

Supervisor Kempka arranged a meeting with Paul Peterson at the walking path. Pam Duddek told Kempka to give the town property to Peterson. When she said that, I thought I’d better be there to see what kind of deals are being cooked up, so I asked to be included.

Why is Paul Peterson being treated differently?

Why were no posts placed on the corners of his lots?

Why was he not ordered to remove his driveway?

Why is he not being treated the same as other residents who have encroached on town property?

If the Board is going to cancel the walking path and give Peterson the property, are they going to give everyone along the path a chance to purchase part of the path? Will the Town receive a fair value for their interest in the property?

Something really doesn’t smell right.

Gale Wogsland,

Letter to Editor:

Growth. Expansion. Development. Progress. It’s clear that Wisconsin needs growth, it needs jobs, it needs more taxpayers and not more taxes, and it needs the right kind of leadership.

If we look back in Wisconsin’s history our war on poverty wasn’t waged by government, but by people, people like Case, Stock, Stephenson, Lloyd, Pabst, Miller, Kohler, Harley and Davidson; we were shipping cars from Kenosha, lumber from Marinette, ships from Sturgeon Bay, motorcycles from Milwaukee and paper from Green Bay. Today, Wisconsin’s largest employers are Wal-Mart and UW-Madison. It’s clear that things have changed, but I have high expectations for Wisconsin.

Wisconsin has so much going for it. We have a highly productive workforce, untapped resources, a surplus of energy we actually export, top shelf infrastructure, and even access to the oceans! There are thousands of opportunities for Wisconsinites.

It’s clear now, more than ever, we need leadership that understands what it will take to create the growth we need, bring Wisconsin to its full potential, and recognize that new jobs are the only sustainable solution to close the skilled labor gap, provide for Wisconsin’s elderly and impoverished, and maintain a well-funded safety net for our citizens

To thrive we need to meet at a certain point; the intersection of job creation, improved education, and smart government.

The solution is not about what makes the state go left or right, it’s about what makes the state go up or down.

By John Macco,

Candidate for

30th Senate Seat

Re: Support Tiffany

As your Wisconsin State Representative, I want the very best for those who live, work and raise their families in our community. I have had the privilege and honor of serving you in the Wisconsin State Assembly for the past 6 years and have met some incredible leaders along the way. My friend and colleague, Tom Tiffany, is one of those leaders and deserves your vote for Wisconsin State Senate on November 6th.

I have very much enjoyed the opportunity to represent a portion of Oconto County during my tenure in the Assembly. Because of changes due to redistricting, I have lost all of Oconto County and acquired other areas. I have developed strong relationships and friendships that will continue. I believe Tom Tiffany will provide strong representation for Oconto County.

I have personally watched Tom work diligently on behalf of Wisconsinites to improve the economic climate in our state and expand opportunities for all of us. Tom is committed to promoting the growth and success of business by fostering a positive business and political environment. Tom knows the value of manufacturing, agriculture and tourism and the significant impact they have on Wisconsin’s economic development success.

Tom and his wife own a small business in Rhinelander. Tom’s conservative values along with his public and private sector experience and his passion for streamlining government position him as the best candidate for the 12th Senate District. Please join me in supporting him.

Gary Tauchen,

State Representative,

6th Assembly District

Bonduel



To the Editor:

As the owner and operator of the King of Pop Kettle Corn I have had the pleasure to “Pop” at The Heritage and Logging Festival in Marinette as a vendor for the last two seasons. I wanted to let the people of your area know what a great time we had in your community, even though I’m a little slow in getting this written.

Not only did your community and the organizers of the event show us the most patience during the first year, 2011, when I brought only one helper, and had a line backed up for way too long - still we had a very successful experience.

At the Heritage and Logging Festival in 2012, we set a record for the most corn popped in one day. We received lots of compliments and did not have the huge back-up line like the previous year. Thank you all for the great turn out, and a very special thanks to the crew that put in the countless hours of work that it always takes to do a successful show of this size.

The idea of moving the date off July 4, in my opinion, surely worked well. There are always too many events for people to choose from on that special holiday, making it difficult for them to choose where to watch the fireworks.

Moving the event and fireworks allowed more people to attend the event and still having a great show kept people in your community and brought a lot of the people in from surrounding areas to Marinette for your festival. I say “Good Job People!”

Here is a Thank You that is long overdue.

Ken Host,

“King of Pop” Kettle Corn

Escanaba, MI

For Clergy Month

“Thank you, Pastor”

Say thank you to your pastor,

October’s Thank You month, you know.

Tell him that you appreciate him,

And wanted him to know.

Thank him for the time he spends

On messages each week.

Thank him for the time he spends

With the sickly and the weak.

Thank him for the time he spends

Studying God’s precious word.

And for the many prayers he prays

For those who haven’t heard.

Thank him for the tears he sheds

For others, you and me.

And for those lonely precious hours

He spends upon his knees.

So thank God and your pastor

For being faithful, kind and true.

For through the work of your dear pastor,

God is daily shaping you.

By Joyce Bedora

of Krakow, former

Peshtigo Resident
