  • It was American soldiers who paid freedom’s price

    Words that were painted on the back of a semitrailer rig the other day pretty much said it all about why we will take time next Monday to honor American soldiers who paid the ultimate price for freedom: “Home of the Free...Because of the Brave!”

    It was not the politicians. It was not

    Paying for college can be daunting

    Another school year is rapidly coming to a close, much to the anticipation of kindergarten through 12th-grade students across Wisconsin. 
    As those students prepare to indulge themselves in the joys of summer, it is unlikely that either they or their parents have given thought to the longer-term ramifications of the passage of another school year. College — whether it’s

    After the recent shooting at a Texas school took the lives of 10 innocent people, it would be helpful to examine the role that anger plays in motivating people to commit murder. 

    In this case, the killer said he only shot at the people he didn’t like. Anger is prevalent in our divided society and we are passing our unhealthy attitudes on to our youths.

    In his book on counseling for anger issues, psychologist

    To the Oneida County board members:
    My name is Rick Plonsky. I reside in Oneida County and am opposed to sulfide mining in environmentally sensitive areas, e.g. the Willow River watershed.
    I believe Sen. Tom Tiffany’s bill was ill-advised and dangerous, not only to the environment but to the tourism economy of northern Wisconsin as well. 
    Although Oneida County has no choice but

    Regarding “Letter to the Editor” from Warren Anderson May 16.
    I really get angry when people lump Democrats as accepting abortion. Not all Democrats believe in abortion. You do know, don’t you, Roe vs. Wade is a law. Are you law-abiding only for laws you believe in?
    Gina Haspel, as you say, served 30 years in the CIA, but she destroyed evidence that had interrogation material which is really against the law.
    You should
  • Letter to the Editor:

    Last week, Dr. Anderson implied that Democrats have relinquished the moral high ground because they are pro-choice; therefore, incapable of offering an opinion regarding the morality of torture. He then claimed that “the Bible condemns abortion.” 

    In reality, there is no biblical reference to abortion which, along with infanticide, were practiced in Jesus’ day. In my opinion, the Bible cannot be the comprehensive arbiter over all things moral or immoral because it is necessarily dependent upon translation and interpretation. 

    These functions are fraught with
  • Uninsured ATVs, UTVs shouldn’t be on roadways

    It’s been a few years since the Wisconsin Legislature passed a law mandating that motor vehicles in Wisconsin be insured to certain minimum levels, a law which also mandates the carrying of proof of insurance in every vehicle.
    The minimum amount of liability coverage is $10,000 for property damage, $25,000 for the injury or death of one person, and

    I was so excited to discover that Switchback, that Celtic musical duo who have been entertaining audiences around the world, will be performing at the Three Lakes Center for the Arts Friday, May 18, at 7:30 p.m.

    We have been following their musical career since the 1980s, when a very young Marty McCormack and Brian Fitzgerald performed in the Irish pubs of Chicago. They had two older musicians from Ireland in their band at that time, Bert McMahon on banjo and their fiddler Mary McDonagh, who traveled as the Wailin’ Banshees and

    I have never met Robert Reich. Nor Jane Fonda. Nor perhaps a score of others whose beliefs and actions I view with utter disdain. 

    Mr. Reich seems to be obsessed with offering vitriolic opinions of President Trump, as expressed in his column every other week in the News-Review?(“selfish, thin-skinned, petulant, lying, narcissistic, boastful, megalomaniac” in the May 9 issue.)

    He somehow cannot escape the utterances of his elite liberal buddies who cannot handle the fact that Trump’s policies, albeit unconventional, are actually
  • Letter to the Editor:
    Senate Democrats are fixated on whether Gina Haspel is morally fit to be the next director of the CIA. 
    In a committee hearing recently, they repeatedly asked her if enhanced interrogation is morally acceptable. Democrats pontificating on morality? They have no qualms about abortion. On the contrary, in their minds we must not torture a terrorist, but it’s OK to murder an innocent baby.
    In her testimony, Ms. Haspel pointed out that enhanced interrogation is illegal, and she personally believes it to be immoral. 
    I think it should be legal, an available tool to be used in some circumstances. Nor is it immoral. There is
