Hi Folks!

February...


This infernal Global Warming just won’t quit bringing frigid temperatures to our part of the world and record snowfalls to the East Coast. Guess we’d rather not trade with Boston. Don’t need to plow cold!

Have been told there is a shortage of snow in parts of Alaska and a shortage of cold in Washington and Oregon. Would love to trade with them. Some folks are blaming that on Global warming, and they claim Global Warming also accounts for our cold and wind, and the record East Coast bli...

Editor:

When I read the letter from James Lund, it made me do some thinking. I think what he was saying was work hard, save money, plan great things and suddenly you are old and it was all a waste.

Spruce Up...



Hi Folks!

Lent is here, Easter is only six weeks off, but Winter lingers on. And on. Shouldn’t be surprised. A few good years with mild weather left us spoiled. Global warming? Poppycock! But enough people believed it to get our good, cheap light bulbs taken away, destroy some good manufacturers, and make a few others rich. Why are we so gullible?

As to weather, this year is bad, but there have been worse. Back in about 1963, our first winter in our new, under insulated house, the ther...

Editor, Peshtigo Times:

How times change!

Its no fun at all to get old in today’s world.

Plan and save. Years ago we got 5 to 8 percent interest on our savings accounts at the bank. We worked hard and saved a few dollars when we were young. Time was that even small depositors could earn five to eight percent interest.

That’s all changed.

Today, our hard earned dollars do not earn money for us. Banks still charge interests when they loan money out, but they pay nothing or almost nothing in interest. If you...
