Issue Date: July 26, 2018

Dear Editor,

How does one adequately say "thank you" to the many, many people who came together to make the 8th Annual Marinette Logging & Heritage Festival successful once again? Inspired by hope, the flourishing of a dedicated committee, once again made it happen.

Foremost, I have to applaud the efforts of the tireless "volunteer" committee, who put in hours and hours of planning, and endless time, to help with production of the festival. These people are amazing, and the perilous hours they spend in preparing, worrying, and organizing everything is beyond compare.

The city of Marinette was once again aglow the preceding and entire weekend of the festival. The WFRV broadcast, the banners, the Public Works employees, working before and during the festival, to make sure the Island was groomed and clean, the law enforcement who provided us with security, the Emergency Rescue Squad and Bellin Health for attending to emergencies, the generous donations from Jack's fresh Market for donating cookies, UP Rite for the donation of soda and water to feed the high school band participants, the excitement of the fireworks, the anticipated parade, and the many donors who made the event possible was so incredible.

My thanks are due to all of you who helped to make a difference in our community. Festivals and events of this magnitude do not "just happen". It takes a multitude of hours, thousands of dollars and indescribable amounts of work, sweat and, yes, tears! Your commitment, whether it was a generous monetary sponsor, food/craft vendor, Welcome Center staff, band member, children's entertainer, non-profit organization, charity rider, librarian, parade, beard growing participant, or car show participant, Historic Preservation member, M&M Community Foundation, Bicycle Federation member, Wi Trappers Association, New Life Church member, etc., made this past weekend a fantastic event. All of this could only happen with your belief in providing a unique experience for our community.

I must say that I continue to be very proud of Marinette and the great people who live and work here. This is a wonderful community and never believe otherwise.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Judy Alwin, Chairman,

Marinette Logging & Heritage Festival



Letter to Editor:

AQUILA STOCK IS NOT A GOOD INVESTMENT!

Aquila Resources, social performance spokesperson, Chantae Lissard, tries to encourage the public to embrace Aquila's Back Forty mining project, stating that mining can be done responsibly, as to not damage the environment. She claims, the area will be returned "to a self-sustaining ecosystem that is compatible with existing uses on adjacent properties."

There has never been a metallic sulfide mine that has not polluted the environment and waters around it. The MDEQ has admitted that "all mines pollute" and the EPA lists metallic sulfide mining as the most toxic industry in the nation. Furthermore, the area will never be the beautiful woodland that it is now. Trees will not survive the toxic soil beneath the grassland that would replace it.

Aquila likes to tout the wonderful attributes that supposedly exist with sulfide mining, to lure investors.

If a person does some research on NASDAQ, you will see that Aquila stock has barely moved in over 5 years. In fact, today alone their stock went down 11.24%. They claim to have $85 million invested and it is estimated it will cost $300 mil to construct a mine. That puts Aquila $385 mil in the red. Investors will never see a return on their investment, in their lifetime. The majority of stock market analysts list Aquila as a "sell" stock.

Investors should also request a line item financial statement, showing assets and liabilities (expenditures). I have seen one such report, and I think the investors would be quite shocked at the salaries of the employees, both in Canada and locally. The travel, entertainment and other expenses are quite interesting. Do your research and you will see what a great investment Aquila Resources is NOT!

Letter to Editor:

I'm writing in support of Jerry Sauve's incumbent candidacy for Marinette County Sheriff. Sheriff Sauve has spent 34 years dedicated to serving and protecting the citizens of Marinette County with our Sheriff's Department. That dedication will continue with his re-election.

My faith in the Sheriff's candidacy and dedication to service is reinforced by the recent endorsement by former Marinette County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy, Bob Kohlman. Sauve and Kohlman are truly men of integrity, and I have great respect for them. They have served the people of Marinette County very well as members of local law enforcement.

Trust the word of Bob Kohlman and please join me in supporting Jerry Sauve for Marinette County Sheriff.

Sincerely,

Bill Drier

Voters:

As a resident of the Town of Stiles in Oconto County, I will have the privilege and responsibility of voting for the next sheriff. The Sheriff manages a $7 million budget, is responsible for 70 employees and the jail, obtaining grants, financial management, experience in making life saving decisions and more.

After researching the two candidates' qualifications, Ed Janke has an amazing amount of qualifications, education, and experience. A degree in leadership, FBI graduate, NWTC instructor, Director of Public Safety, employee supervision, budget management, trained mediator, law enforcement instructor, and more.

He has received many awards for his work in Public Safety. He has spent the last two years working closely with Sheriff Jansen and is ready to step into the position. He, along with others, is diligently working to combat the drug/opiate, child abuse/pornography, and mental health issues in our county.

He coordinated with Emergency Management Director Tim Magnin to conduct a School Shooter Exercise at O.F. High School, with more to follow.

His opponent is a deputy in the Sheriff's Department without the qualifications, education, and experience that is needed to take over this demanding position. Do not be swayed by words and pictures that pull at your heartstrings. This is not a popularity contest, nor a vote for your friend election.

We as voters have a huge responsibility to put the right person in the Sheriff's position. Please vote for Ed Janke. He is the ONLY qualified candidate to continue the efficiency of the Sheriff's Department and keep you and your family safe.

Melissa Wellens,

Stiles



Dear Fellow Marinette County Residents:

After 27 years of service with the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office, we were able to retire to Marinette County. For the past 28 years we have resided in the Town of Silver Cliff. Because of my background I have paid attention to our Sheriff's Office here in Marinette County. Having the knowledge of all a Sheriff is responsible for, I have become very impressed with our Sheriff Jerry Sauve and the level of dedication to his duties as Sheriff.

The County Jail operations and the high marks our jail receives in its annual inspections, Court Security, Civil Process and Sheriff's sales, all being done well on his watch. I have come to know him as a principled leader who is not afraid to do what he knows is right.

Year after year he comes out to all our fire service picnics and parades, escorts our American Legion Color Guard, and visits and supports these events.

Sheriff Jerry Sauve is the "real deal" and I am pleased to support him in the upcoming election on Tuesday, Aug. 14.

Sincerely,

Lt. William J. Woger (Ret.)

Milwaukee Co Sheriff Department

Silver Cliff



Dear friends,

I wish to take a moment to thank those who spent this past Saturday morning, in the rain, working to spread woodchips throughout Playscape Park in Crivitz. The crew of volunteers from Northwoods Apostolic Church, village officials, and the donated equipment (and operators) of Kip Knudson and Richlen Excavating made quick work of the pile of chips which in turn made this playground a cleaner, safer and more comfortable place for our children to play.

It is wonderful to live in a community where volunteerism is not just a word in the dictionary but an action on the part of, and for the benefit of, the community. It was great to see young and old working alike together to get this project completed.

I thank you. It is people like you that make Crivitz such a great place to live, work and play.

John Deschane,

Village President



Dear Editor:

My hospital was burglarized two years ago. The thief gained entry by breaking a window. The shattered glass caused self injury that led to leaving a significant blood trail. 911 was contacted and they dispatched Officer Popp to inspect the scene. After investigating, he said it would be a difficult case to solve as there wasn't any substantial evidence. I inquired if a blood sample would suffice and he said of course but there wasn't any to obtain. He had determined the red substance dripping down the door and across the floor was red paint! When I assured him it wasn't red paint he disagreed and left. I called Sheriff Sauve directly and told him what happened. He sent Officer Popp back and he collected blood evidence. The thief was caught as a result.

If this is how Officer Popp solves a crime, it would be troublesome to imagine how he would approach his new position a Sheriff.

Sincerely,

Rocci Downs, DVM

Dear Editor,

In recent Letter to the Editor in the July 5th edition of the Peshtigo Times, a Town of Stephenson resident was encouraging a vote for Fred Popp for Sheriff of Marinette County, over Jerry Sauve due to Sheriff Sauve's OWI Task Force. She stated the OWI Task Force was driving the tourists out of the Town of Stephenson. I applaud the 8 years of work Sheriff Sauve has done to enforce the drunk driving laws of the State of Wisconsin, and especially for his efforts in making our roads safer for travel in the Town of Stephenson.  

It is the policies of the Town of Stephenson Board that are driving the tourists out of the Town of Stephenson. Many of our current roads in the Town are pretty much impassable unless you want to risk damage to your expensive vehicle. Parkway Road used to be an enjoyable Sunday afternoon drive 20 years ago, but today you cannot currently safely travel the portion between High Falls Road and County Hwy X (plus needing a front end alignment and a rear camber fix if you do). The Town is currently sitting with over a million dollars in their "depreciation" account which could be put to better use addressing the badly degraded road conditions. If new town equipment does need to be purchased in the future, the Town does have "taxing" authority to tax for needed funds to purchase the needed equipment  

The Town of Stephenson's policy of allowance of ATVs and UTVs on the Town of Stephenson roads has made our roads very dangerous for everyone. With all the available County and State owned lands in the Town of Stephenson, there is no justifiable excuse for ATVs and UTVs to be running the town roads. The ATVs and UTVs running our roads has also ruined the peace and quiet of the area that many of us sought out when we built our homes.

Sincerely,

Arthur F. Lautenbach,

N7125 Mickey Road,

Crivitz, WI 54114
