Issue Date: July 5, 2018

Dear Editor:

I want to thank Deputy Sheriff Fred Popp for coming to speak with us in the Town of Stephenson. I also would like to thank him for running for Sheriff and the Lord knows we need a change.

The last 8 years of economic oppression under Jerry Suave and his grants for the OWI Task Force, is killing Tourism. And to make matters worse 25% of that grant is funded by taxes. The first four years, Suave and Scott Reiss, head of the OWI grant ran off the tourists from out of state and southern Wisconsin. These last four years, they have been targeting the locals; the residents here cannot even go out to dinner and have a couple of drinks without fearing of being pulled over. We haven't been able to raise enough funds for our Rescue Squad or Fire Department. Because under this grant, the Task Force has to stop a vehicle every 45 minutes. This makes it impossible for the officers not to sit outside of a resort or fundraiser to get their "Quota". It has gotten so bad that our Tourist slogan is "Come on Vacation and Leave on Probation."

Our County policymakers getting a loan of $37 million for capital improvements, and saying they'll be paying it back with sales taxes! Without tourism our resort businesses are closing down and are going up for sale, because they cannot make enough money to keep afloat, much less pay taxes. It seems the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Can any of them connect dots? This has got to stop.

It is time for a change. Fred Popp is smart, level headed and has a good heart. He has some great ideas; he supports connecting local business with the ATV/UTV trails, and values promoting tourism and instead of going after the beer drinkers, he wants to focus on stopping the drugs, such as heroin and opioids that are flooding into the county.

Fred Popp wants to "Protect and Serve", not as in the past to "Harass and Intimidate".

This Primary Election is so very important for our county, this primary will be the election, there is no other candidates running for this position, please VOTE Aug, 14. Vote for Relief!

Barbara Kikulski,

Town of Stephenson





Letter to Editor:

Just read the article in the Peshtigo Times about city cleanup.

 The city could do more to help residents get rid of junk as they used to when I first moved here in 2005. A resident could put things at the curb and the city would pick up. Now the city wants you to go to city hall (limited hours), pay for a permit and then hall it to the dump yourself (limited hours).  Some people still do work during daytime hours.   

 And since when is it legal for a police officer to be nosing around a citizen's private property without a warrant?  I guess in the age of Trump it might be.

 And if my grass is not a foot tall, I don't think it's anyone's business how long it is.

Respectfully,

 Ruth Meyer

291 N. Noquebay Ave.

Peshtigo, Wi. 54157



RESPONSE:

Ruth:

I agree with the troubles people have getting rid of unwanted material. At this time we don't have the budget to have someone located at the disposal site. I receive several complaints a week from residents who have neighbors that don't keep their yards maintained, whether it is grass or other material.

City Hall is open daily Monday thru Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The thought behind paying for stickers is people who utilize the service will have to pay for it. We also offer for bigger items picked at your residence for $15, just for information.

We do have ordinances for grass height which is 8" and an ordinance for the Police Department to enforce materials, unlicensed vehicles and so forth in residents yards.

I have been working on having our disposal site open on Saturday, but our budget at this time cannot afford to.

I truly appreciate your concern.

Mayor Cathi Malke
