Letter to Editor:

With Coleman's Veterans Memorial completed, it is time to look back and give some thanks. There were many, too many to list, but they know who they are. I do want to comment on the top few that made it go so quickly and smoothly.

There was Josh Nowak. Remember that former wrestling great. He donated several days of hard cement work. It got us started, and motivated to go to the next stage. Then there was the electrical work that Dennis and Wayne Gross spent long hours on. The night lights sure add to the Memorial.

Next came Rod Marquardt with his professional plaques on those we have lost during war times. He also did the magnificent special walkway and Legion Veterans Wall. Probably as nice as any you'll see in the state.

The thank you and welcome front side of the wall should make all of the donors proud to be part of this memorial. The local Legion was lucky to have someone as talented as Rod in our area.

Getting back to Dennis Gross, the Village of Coleman Public Works Supervisor, he helped in so many areas with hard work and ideas that made this project get done in less than a year.

All of the above, like all the donors, were not looking for recognition, but I'm forever grateful to them.

Coleman Memorial Chairman,

Robert Blackbourn




Dear Editor:

The Beaver American Lutheran Church would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to the many people who took the time out of their day to attend and support our church by attending our soup luncheon and raffle that was held on Nov. 4. A special thank you to all who donated raffle items, desserts and the time and effort it took to make this year a huge success.

Jeanne Graef



Letter to Editor:

As I woke this morning, I thanked our Creator for another day to do something great, to make a difference. I look the same, but I'm different. I'm a dirty b****, a Communist, and a communist b****. That was screamed into my face by two ugly men while sitting in my wheelchair on the sidewalk next to the Republican Headquarters in Marinette, WI.

I was there for a reason. Governor Walker's bus was arriving. I was holding a sign, SAVE THE MENOMINEE RIVER STOP THE BACK FORTY MINE. I was there because our area is being threatened by a metallic sulfide mine 150 ft. from the banks of our Menominee River, and the sacred burial grounds of the Menominee Nation. This is the drinking water for the cities of Menominee, MI and Marinette, WI. As a Wisconsin resident I have taken this BACKJ FORTY MINE fight as my very own, to stop it so it can't happen in Wisconsin. Governor Walker repealed 1998's "Prove it first law" that protected wi from this type of mine. Sulfide mines have a 100% failure rate and destroy the area water. There is no way to clean it up. My sign was to remind the Governor of what he has done to our state! Wisconsin is now being threatened by 2 metallic mines. The people in those cities are also holding signs, and telling this Governor he has failed us.

As this dirty Communist b**** sits her typing this letter, I want to tell you 2 men, and I use the term "men" loosely, that I have every right to sit and hold my sign, to protect my water for everyone, and for those to come. I'll continue to do what I'm doing, because it's the right thing to do. I'm not what you called me. I was afraid to tell you what I thought of you as your both stood over me screaming in my face, then physically ripping my sign from my hands and throwing it where I couldn't retrieve it. I was alone and afraid, even though a State Patrol officer was parked across the street watching. I was afraid because he sat in his squad car and did nothing to help me. You showed your right wing brutality. Are you both proud of how you took out the enemy? Maybe you'll receive medals for your heroics...or perhaps chests to pin them on. As for me! I sat my ground until Walker's bus arrived. That's why I came, that's what I did, along with many others who came after you left. As you returned to your clubhouse I easily saw the large yellow stripes running down both your backs.

Mary Hansen,

Peshtigo




Letter to Editor:

Fire Chief Jim Stradal from the Town of Stephenson has a great crew. The four men chipped a 60 foot pile of tree limbs in 10 minutes. The fire hazard is gone. Thanks guys.

And that was not an easy job, the two of us are in our late 80's and cannot walk without a cane or walker. Our neighbors were the ones who cut the little trees and stacked them up for us.

We do appreciate all the help! Thanks.

Ray and Mary Ann Wagner



Letter to Editor:

My first grade students have been learning about Veteran's Day and wanted to send a big thank you to all the veterans in our community. They said:

Dear Veterans:

Thank you for helping to keep our country safe. Thank you for protecting us from the bad people. We learned that people who serve often have to leave their homes and families. We can't imagine how hard that must be leaving loved ones for months at a time, missing out of birthdays and holidays. Thank you so much for your service and for protecting our liberty and freedom. God bless you and keep you safe.

Sincerely,

First graders at Wausaukee Elementary School

Educational Coaching by Cathy Toll




"Leafless Trees"

Leafless trees stare out at the land,

Cold gray clouds float in the sky,

November's autumn is dreary and sad,

For it is blamed for the flowers that die.



The wind sweeps over the corn stubbled fields,

Fallen leaves lie on the ground,

All life that was are now just ghosts,

And they lie there still without making a sound.



No farewells or no so longs,

Not even a tear do they cry,

For they were chosen by Mother Nature,

In November doomed to die.



It's their fate, there's no doubting that,

But to a poet it's hard to let go,

So I'll sit under a leafless tree,

For some reason I wasn't meant to know.

Roger Lanich,

Wausaukee




Letter to Editor:

The Coleman School Board met on Nov. 12. On the agenda was the use of Fund 46 for Major Scope Adjustments in the Referendum Project. Fund 46 was set up as a capital improvement fund (mainly for a roof replacement). I have been told, all but one board member present voted in favor of using this $581,000.00 as an add on to the $13,800,000.00 from the referendum. Instead of using the money on the improvements and reducing the amount we will borrow, we opened up the amount we can spend on the project to almost $14,400,000.00.

The taxpayers of the District should call the members of the Board if they disagree with this addition of money on top of what was approved by the electorate. Talk to your friends, neighbors, and relatives. Please tell them that they have $13,800,000.00 and that is it. If you don't know who is on the board, please call the district office for their names and phone numbers. This is your tax dollars and you need to be heard.

Dennis Fiedorowicz
