Country Cousin

What the Heck is Switchel?...

It's been hot, hot, hot lately, and humid to boot. Stepped outside Friday night into what felt like a warm, misty rain, but turned out to be air so humid you got wet just standing there. The drops weren't really coming down, they were just sort of hanging around. Strange!

HOG WRESTLING

Hog wrestling weekend at Caldron Falls Bar is held annually, and am told the PETA people are all kinds of upset.

Cruelty to pigs, you know.

Wonder what they think goes on?...

Editor:

For a county of 40,000 people and a debt of $40 million, Marinette County Board doesn't seem to have a problem spending money like a drunken sailor.

Four years ago they had the "Wipfli" wage study that cost nearly $55,000 and raises were then given to county employees. Two years ago county employees were given a two percent raise. An additional raise is now in the works with a price tag of $52,250 plus incidentals for another wage study.

Great Summer...

What a fabulous moon we enjoyed Monday and Tuesday night. Wednesday promises the same. Evenings don't come much finer! Days either, for that matter. Mostly, so far it's been a great summer.

MOON NAMES

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the full moon Tuesday night was the "Buck Moon," so named by the early Indian tribes because it shines in July at about the time the buck whitewall deer are beginning to grow their antlers.

American names of full moons generally com...

To the Editor:

As usual, any effort to craft a rational gun bill for the purpose of reducing unbridled violence towards innocent Americans is being blocked by G.O.P. opposition from the so-called House Freedom Caucus. 

Freedom was never intended to mean freedom to kill based upon some twisted interpretation of the Second Amendment.

There are bills on hold in Congress written by both parties that deserve to be heard and voted on. They are all legitimate and with bipartisan debate, a well-intended step in the right direc...
