    Community support vital to Warm The Children

    This year marks the 21st straight year that this newspaper will be seeking donations in excess of $65,000 to support the nationally-acclaimed Warm The Children program. The area’s cold climate and challenging seasonal economy keeps the demand high.
    The program is

    Domestic violence affects all of us

    As a former prosecutor and now as attorney general, I have seen how abuse and the fear of abuse can take a physical, emotional and psychological toll on families, and this October, as a state, we must recognize how this violence affects all of us. 
    Domestic violence affects people of both genders. It is estimated that

    Again, we grieve over a massive shooting, this one taking 58 innocent lives in Las Vegas, Nev. All of us wonder how such carnage can be prevented. 
    Gun control advocates promote the outlawing of certain firearms. But that does not decrease the number of people who want to kill others.
    There are potential murderers among us bent on killing as many people as they can at one time. Take away their access to guns, and they might resort to bombs and other weapons of mass destruction. 
    What motivates a person to kill? Our first response might be

    Ever thought of serving on a school board or in local government: town, city or at the county level? The spring election for these levels of public office will take place April 3, 2018, with a spring primary, if needed, Feb. 20, 2018.
    In order to have one’s name placed on the ballot for the spring election 2018, the following forms need to be completed: registration form, Declaration of Candidacy and nomination papers.

    Dear Editor:
    For 26 years after Cranberry Fest, I’ve written a letter recognizing all who have helped in any way with the World’s Largest Cranberry Cheesecake. This letter is not only thankful, it’s bittersweet. The cheesecake just appeared for the last time at Cranberry Fest.
    This huge dessert has a history that started in 1991 when my late husband, Randy Bergstrom, along with Cindy Meinholz, came up with the world’s largest cranberry “something” to benefit Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. It would provide funds for wishes for kids suffering life-threatening illnesses.

    As you probably know, October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Tri-County Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault holds activities and events each year to bring awareness to this problem and to honor those who have lost their lives in the past year to domestic violence homicide.
    Last year, we held a very powerful event downtown at Trig’s Green Space in Rhinelander to honor the victims of homicide from the 2015 Wisconsin Domestic Violence Homicide Report. We had 53 community members join us for

    Our respect, appreciation goes to emergency workers

    Emergency personnel who are on call 24 hours a day, including firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), paramedics and police officers, deserve our admiration and support.

    Nicolet College hosted Leadercast Women, a simulcast from Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 5, in the Lakeside campus. It was just like a Ted Talk, only in Rhinelander!

    About 40 women from Vilas and Oneida counties attended and represented their local businesses and organizations.

    Each one of us has been placed on this earth and we all ask ourselves, “What is my purpose or reason for being here?”

    Nine internationally-known women of influence spoke on the topic: “The Power of Purpose.” They represented

    The tragic mass shooting here in Las Vegas made me deeply grateful for my North Woods roots. I was raised in Eagle River and the values instilled by many of you remain a part of me to this day.

    Extended family and friends who attended the concert thankfully made it out alive and I’m still sobered by the thought that they could have just as easily been statistics. One of my coworkers was

    Dear Editor:
    Several Democrats are about to introduce a bill in the Senate that would extend Medicare coverage to all citizens. I believe the time has come to pass this bill. 
    America has been wrestling with the issue of health-care reform for more than 100 years. During that time, we have been stalled at the name-calling stage (“socialized medicine,” government interference) while the rest of the Western world has
