Country Cousin

Reindeer...

Hi Folks!

TIMESland seemed to have a White Christmas all wrapped up until a few days ago. But the thaw came, and the rains came, and then snow came....

Will this snow last until Christmas? Will it snow again or will there be more rain? Even the weathermen don’t pretend to know the answer.

Seven-day predictions, even for the Michigan border communities, hover between rain and snow most days between now and Christmas Eve. Temperature predictions are just as iffy, with most of them j...

To the Editor:

It was interesting to read your front page story last week “17 Supervisors Request Talk On Salaried Employees” where it says there are Marinette County employees working 35 hours per week while getting paid for 40 hours per week.

In the previous week’s PT on the front page it said in the “Oconto Co. Personnel Airs County Board Chair Compensation” article that “some salaried county department heads work 37.5 hours a week while others work 40 hours.”

I personally have been known to be still wrapping the last of the gifts on Christmas morning, while others have them neatly displayed beneath the tree a month in advance.

Meanwhile, officially we have about 10 days to wait for winter to arrive. The white ground cover belies that, as do the snowmen still standing more t...

Wolfgang

By Jane Thibodeau Martin,

daughter of the Old-Timer


I have been bemused the last few years watching the “designer dog” trend. For those of you who don’t scour the “pets for sale” column in a large-market newspaper, or pay attention to what Paris Hilton is doing, “designer dogs” are small-size dogs who are not purebred, registered animals, but are priced like they are - or even higher yet. I routinely see dogs advertised for $500 or more that are breed-crosses of popular small dog breeds. They are g...
