To the Editor:
After attending the Wausaukee School Board meeting Aug. 27, I came away ashamed over the cruelty certain board members showed to Lisa Versaskas.
What is happening to our school? Why does one man dictate everything? How come if anyone disagrees with him they are blacklisted?
This isnt the first time something like this has happened in our school. Its happened far too often yet no one speaks up against this kind of cruelty. It seems as if most are afraid to. I commend Lisa Versaskas for having the courage to speak up for the wrong committed to her.
It is time now for others to come forward to speak up also. It is time for the other members of the school board to stand up to the few board members who think they control everything and everyone. It is time for the people of the Wausaukee School District to take our school back from these few who are only interested in their power. Take back our school before its too late. Have courage. We live in America, not Nazi Germany. Not only do we all have a right to speak, we also have an obligation to stand up against cruelty and bullying.
Letter to the Editor:
I just returned from walking my dog on CTY BB, Shore Drive. She had to go out and I started down the road 15 minutes after the rain stopped. We walked almost a mile. Were there puddles to splash us when cars went by? NO! Were there soft spots on the shoulder? NO! Did my shoes even get wet? NO! The road surface was damp and that was IT!
The County Board, the Highway Commission and our highway engineer are to be congratulated for getting such a beautiful job planned and specified and for hiring such a competent company to execute the work. Northeast Asphalt was unfailing in their efforts during the work period to keep traffic moving, to get the proper equipment on the job, and to finish the work on time. Their crews were polite, answered queries about the job and their subcontractors (trucking) also did a very good job.
All this in spite of the fact that there are about 275 driveways to residences on the 5.5 project miles which are used regularly, 7-8 side roads entering, and a normal traffic flow on the road of near 2,000 vehicles per day. I thank you all.
After the recent death of my brother, Wesley Seidel, his obituary was posted in the Peshtigo Times as written by his widow. Due to some personal conflicts, she listed me as deceased. Although I havent lived in the area for over 50 years, I have old classmates and friends still there. Just want them to know I am still alive and kicking in Bucksport, Maine.
