Outsiders can determine political future for North

Letter to the Editor:

How many times have references to Dane County derisively suggested that the politically liberal atmosphere of Madison has too much influence on the conservative North Woods?

How many times have right-wingers bemoaned the influence of the more progressive community in the greater Madison area, and implied that “those people” do not represent “our values” and “our concerns?”

Well, guess what boys and girls, the Supreme Court just ruled in McCutcheon v. FEC that there can be no aggregate limits to campaign contributions. What in the heck does that mean? In fishing, it would mean that you could catch 1,000 walleyes a day,

Many in community will miss Fr. Horath

Three Lakes School Board should hold public meeting

Letter to the Editor:

I am very upset with how the Three Lakes School Board is handling this very disturbing situation regarding Dr. George Karling. There appears to be a blasé attitude from the board in regards to the arrest of Dr. Karling leading to a disorderly conduct charge.

The board has done nothing to reassure the parents and students regarding Dr. Karling’s behavior.

I know how decisively the board has

Letter to the Editor:

We did it again! Letter carriers at the Eagle River Post Office, along with postal employees and local volunteers, teamed up to Stamp Out Hunger in the community.
