Mayor says city following advice of attorneys

Dear Editor:

If only I?had known that the Eagle River City Council does not have to spend money on an attorney for legal advice. No, we could just go to the editorial board of the Vilas County News-Review.

That’s right, they now offer legal opinions. In fact, they will take any complicated legal issue, condense it into a “nutshell,” you swallow it with a large glass of water, (pay no attention to the choking) and everything is OK. See, no need to be “paranoid.”

What am I?talking about?

Well, it seems from last week’s opinion, the editorial board

Watch for turtles crossing roads

Dear Editor:

Turtles are crossing our roads to lay their eggs! It is completely unfair to run them over. Nothing makes me sadder than to see a squished turtle on the road.

Most roads they cross are country roads near wet areas. If you are in too much of a hurry to stop and help them cross the road, please drive around them!

Mayor, city should embrace opportunity

Dear Editor:

We’re almost speechless! We hardly know where to begin to express our astonishment that the Eagle River mayor and City Council are throwing obstacles in the path of the ongoing efforts of hundreds of people in several surrounding communities to build/remodel the library in this little town.

We have eagerly attended several public meetings

Phelps needs to improve road signs for public safety

Dear Editor:

The good news is that the town of Phelps fixed and replaced the missing warning signs on Kentuck Lake Road, but a “Stop Ahead” sign and reposition of the badly-positioned “Stop” sign at the end of Nicolet Shores Lane (at Kentuck Lake Road) is still very badly needed.

A serious injury accident previously occurred at this intersection. Unfortunately, since Nicolet Shores Lane is not a Phelps town road, the town will not help completely resolve this safety problem.

I have asked Nicolet Shores Resort management to help

Let’s use Visner design and get shovel in ground

Letter to the Editor:

I have the highest regard for Eagle River’s mayor and City Council, and a keen appreciation for the often thankless public service they provide to our community year in and year out. They are thoughtful and conscientious stewards of our tax dollars and give tremendous value to taxpayers.

However, I agree with last week’s News-Review editorial supporting the local library board’s need to use a building-expansion plan created by local building designer Jeff Visner. Hundreds of donors have contributed or pledged more than $2 million based on the Visner design.

But the mayor and City Council have strongly suggested,
