Issue Date: October 31, 2019

Dear Editor:

The members of Menominee American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Unit 146, would like to extend a sincere appreciation to our veterans on Monday, Nov. 11, Veterans Day, or Armistice Day (WWI) as it was once known, and first celebrated in 1919. It is a time to pay tribute to all American veterans " living or deceased for protecting this great country " The United States of America. The American Legion Auxiliary recognizes veterans for having a sense of duty, and courage when they answered the call to serve, and protect their country's freedom, and security.

It is important to the American Legion organization, and to our country to remember those who have sacrificed so that Americans can enjoy a better way of life. Since many of our veterans and active duty military have witnessed, and experienced the devastation of war, it does leave a serious impact mentally, and physically on them. Many veterans will experience homelessness, loneliness, despair, home/work related issues, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which includes flashback, and severe anxiety. There are benefits and services available to veterans. Veterans are encouraged to contact a local American Legion Post, or a State Representative for referrals.

American Legion Auxiliary members have dedicated themselves for a century to their organization's mission: In the spirit of Service, Not Self, the mission of the American Legion Auxiliary is to support the American Legion, and honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our veterans, military, and their families, both at home and abroad. For God and Country, we advocate for veterans, educate our citizens, mentor youth, and promote patriotism, good citizenship, peace and security. The ALA represents the views of its members based on its four pillars: Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, Children and Youth.

In addition, the American Legion is a voice for American veterans, and service members, and lets our government officials know how we feel when it comes to changes relating to our veterans. Lastly, The Legion Act with new eligibility requirements was recently passed. The American Legion does not support candidates, but rather issues.

Since there will be various veteran commemorative ceremonies taking place in our area, the public is encouraged to attend.

Remember our veterans on Nov. 11, and extend a "thank you" or a "helping hand" to them.

Dear Editor:

Thank you Father Jack Harper!!!

People of Peshtigo your water bill will go up 80% if you do not get involved in this issue.

Join together and call your mayor 715-582-3041 and your council people and ask them to reconsider negotiating with BPM about the water-sewer issue. 11% is better than 80%.

Respectfully,

Sharon Schounard



Dear Editor:

A "Sound Off" letter in 10-23-19 edition of the Marinette paper discussed students' low performances in math, English and comprehension, and asking why. Simple, and long-time coming. We are in the second generation of students who have been short-changed intentionally by the educational systems nationwide; specifically, the teachers' unions. Mary Christian, a member of my downstate Tim Horton's social group, was president of teachers unions, and was President of the Michigan Education Association until just prior to her death 3 years ago. She was so Marxist it was frightening. I once asked her why she was so willing to cheat today's students out of the same opportunities she had in order to make a wonderful life for herself. With a smug, nonchalant expression, she just shrugged her shoulders. Four years ago, another retired teacher friend sent me a copy of a recent union meeting minutes. Appalling! Nothing but bashing America and any degree of conservatism (liberalism run amok)"nothing about students, schools, curriculum at all. To quote the teacher's unions' mission: "To promote Marxism ideals of Soviet-inspired Frankfurt School (separating children from parental influence by raising separately so they can be politically indoctrinated); to destroy Christianity and traditional morality; UNDERMINE BASIC SKILLS in order to make America "so corrupt it stinks" opposes performance standards, employee drug testing, vouchers, merit pay, school prayer; supports sex education (includes practicing LGBTQ lifestyles), abortion, nuclear freeze, gay marriage, single-payer healthcare, United Nations (including Agenda 21). Teachers' unions"at the national level"funnels funds to George Soros; in fact, every union in the country"again, at national level"funds money to Soros, and has for decades, as do Planned Parenthood, Ben & Jerry's Foundation, Progressive Insurance, for a few examples, for all his anit-American activities. Teaching used to be an honorable and respectable profession a few decades ago. Six of my extended family were teachers, but took early retirements.

Issue #2: Ron Reagan, Jr., claiming founding fathers intended separation of church and state. Not so, and it's nowhere in the Constitution. When the Constitution was ratified, the Danbury (Conn.) Baptists were worried they would not be able to practice their religion, and wrote to Thomas Jefferson about their concerns. Jefferson wrote back, explaining they built a FIREWALL OF PROTECTION into the Constitution prohibiting government from establishing a national religion, and protecting their rights to practice. Both letters are in the National Archives. References to God and scriptures could not be etched into government buildings if there was "separation of church and state" or oaths of office on Bibles.

Editor:

"Establishing an Identity", a recent article appearing in the Marinette Paper, may help search for a way to identify the things that make our corner of the world special. But, maybe instead of looking for things, places or activities that are "new' we certainly will want to keep what we have, as a starting point. Organizers Will Ketchum and Don McEachern from North Star (a national company), presented their work concept to community leaders and others in a recent meeting. They asked for a "one' word description of Marinette and Menominee Counties that is distinct and authentic about the area. The one-word description given was "water".

If a second word is added to the one word "water" it would surely be "uncontaminated" water. During the past 15 years Aquila Resources Inc. has attempted to secure mining permits for a Volcanic Massive Sulfide mine and processing operation on the banks of the Menominee River. This would most certainly destroy the quality and serenity of Menominee Counties principal tourist attraction, Shaky Lakes, not to mention the water quality of the Menominee River. This would destroy the entire concept of what "water" means to the area as its principal value for development for both counties of Marinette and Menominee.

The thousands of people living in the Flint, Michigan area will also tell you "water' is the most important word that is distinct and authentic about their area but warn you to act now, before pollution of the Menominee River starts. Just a split second after it starts, it's too late!!!! And if it's too late, all the water related millions of dollars generated by the area's tourist activity will also be gone along with our precious lifesaving water.
