ObamaCare ignores basic concept of insurance

Letter to the Editor:

In response to the Jan. 8 Robert Reich column, “Health law deserves time.”

Robert Reich says that the Affordable Care Act deserves time before we can pass judgment on it. He admits that only 35% of those questioned in a CNN poll support the law.

Turns out it is not affordable because it ignores the basic concept of insurance. That rationale is to provide coverage for a large, unexpected loss. Homeowners insurance is a good example. You purchase this by using your own money to pay premiums.

Eagle Waste committed
to these communities

Eagle Waste & Recycling Inc. has completed a massive building and equipment expansion, bringing at least 17 new year around jobs and state-of-the-art recycling advances to Eagle River and the area.

Hats off to local brewers

Letter to the Editor:

Congratulations to Bill Summers and Marc O’Brien of the Tribute Brewing Company on the celebration of their first year as a brewer in Eagle River and the state of Wisconsin.

Bill and Marc are brewing some pretty darned good beers and have garnered local support of their taphouse and beers as something fun and special.  It is another reason to love the North Woods.

Nothing is the same anymore

Why did the Veterans Administration (VA) stop 50-plus school children from giving out Christmas cards at the VA hospital?

The people who escorted these children to the hospital to distribute the Christmas cards were told this was their policy and therefore couldn’t pass out the Christmas cards! America, these are men and women who have been injured fighting to keep us safe and free.
