    Dear Editor:

    I always receive your newspaper Wednesday morning. I skip all the news stuff on the front pages and go right to the “Letters to the Editor” on the back pages to read those letters.

    They are always very interesting. They do, however, sometimes contain misinformation.

    The recent letters regarding wolf numbers is one of them. We all know there are more than three times the number of wolves in Wisconsin than biologists say are

    Letter to the Editor:

    In interest of full disclosure, I admit that I am a liberal, politically. My current take on our national budget has taken a huge turn toward conservatism. 

    We have a new tax law. Because of that tax law I will save some dollars, but not nearly as much as folks with huge incomes. That’s OK with me, except that this tax law is set to add $1.5 trillion  to the national debt in 10 years.

    As if that is not enough debt, our government has just passed a new budget that will add another $1 trillion-plus to the debt. These are additions to

    Dear Editor:
    In his “Letter to the Editor” Jan. 31, “Ducking the truth on Trump’s statement,” which was a rebuttal to my letter from the week prior, “Many are disputing Trump’s statement,” Terrance Moe attempted to prove that Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin was being truthful regarding his claim that President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and countries in Africa as “s---holes.”
    But in order to do so, Moe presented mere anecdotal evidence while flat out ignoring Durbin’s smoking gun self-incrimination which includes not only strikingly similar circumstances as those in Durbin’s 2013 lie, but

    Random Acts of Kindness week is Feb. 11-17. 
    Consider doing something nice for other people, not just this week, but all year long.
    It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice. No act of kindness is ever wasted and it feels good.

    Economy a challenge for most of Wisconsin

    Wisconsin’s economy is recovering in some factors, but in general, the measures are split and the divide between the economy of booming counties and struggling counties continues to grow. 
    What does that mean and how can we fix it? That just means that

    Attention hunters, fishermen and conservationists. Our state wetlands are under attack.
    Two bills moving swiftly through the Wisconsin Legislature (Assembly Bill 547 and Senate Bill 600) seek to remove protections for “non-federal” wetlands. These unconnected wetlands make up almost 1 million acres and provide cold groundwater to trout streams, protect against flooding and erosion, and provide critical habitat for waterfowl as well as many other plant and animal species.
    If passed, these bills would allow

    To area voters:
    We write this letter to encourage you to join us in voting for Judge Rebecca Dallet for justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
    Judge Dallet’s relevant legal experience far exceeds that of either of her opponents. Dallet has “worked in the trenches” of the Wisconsin court system first as a state and federal prosecutor, and for the last 10 years as a circuit court judge in Milwaukee County. 
    Dallet’s colleagues in Milwaukee describe her

    I concur with Lee Balek, who recently wrote a letter to the editor titled, “Don’t upset the balance of nature.”
    Her contention is that Wisconsin Assembly Bill 712 and its companion bill, Wisconsin Senate Bill 602 — bills that will not allow the use of state funds to enforce laws pertaining to how wolves are managed — will be detrimental not only to the wolf population but also to a healthy deer herd since wolves prey on the sick and diseased.
    With the spread of chronic wasting disease, having a natural check (wolves) is
