Hats off to our local pharmacist for not selling tobacco products

Letter to the Editor:

CVS Pharmacies recently received a lot of media coverage for its decision to discontinue selling tobacco products by Oct. 1, 2014.

Covered far less in the media is the fact that our own Health Care Pharmacies in Land O’ Lakes, St. Germain and Wall Street in Eagle River have also refused to sell tobacco products for more than 25 years.

Environment must remain a priority

Letter to the Editor:

Any self-respecting native Wisconsinite knows something of the legacy of one of our best, the great Gaylord Nelson — governor, U.S. senator, Wisconsin senator, recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award in 1995 for his work on environmental issues, the founder of Earth Day in 1970, served in Okinawa in WWII and was a Wisconsin native!

Duck, Lynx lakes already dangerous

Letter to the Editor:

There is a time when one needs to review policies that hurt rather than enhance our natural resources. The proposal to add several lengthy docks on both Duck and Lynx lakes is one of these times.

These lakes are small and have been taxed in recent years with the building of many condominiums. With the building of these places, infractions occurred (with previous owner) where the natural landscape and waterscape were altered due to stump and tree removal.

How can these developers be allowed
