    Trickle-down policies will affect all

    For most of us, Washington, D.C., and the politics of President Donald Trump and a Republican Congress seem a million miles away.
    But the reality is that our lives and the lives of those we love are impacted by the federal government and decisions made

    Dear Editor:

    We Great Headwaters Trails (GHT) board members want to express our gratitude for the enormous response so far to the “Complete the Trail” appeal that started for the Conover-Phelps Trail just a few weeks ago.

    The appeal’s $15,000 Challenge Fund is almost fully matched, but due to a generous new donation from a Phelps couple, the challenge bar has now been boosted to $21,000!

    Meeting that challenge will

    Dear Editor:

    Like a lot of programs when the grass-roots idea started out, it was for a good cause and is needed in the community. I’m sure when the Northwoods Transit Connections idea was tossed around, this was the case.

    Also, like a lot of good programs when the government gets involved, sooner or later, it’s going to get out of hand.

    Gradually, the program gets bigger and bigger; with more this, more that, more employees, etc., it just gets bloated.

    I’m sure there are people who need a ride to

    I recently had a lengthy stay at the Ascension Eagle River Hospital. I was so impressed with the kindness and compassion shown to me by all the staff. They all went above and beyond what their jobs require.
    A special shout out to the wonderful physician assistant, Katie, who even drove me home and set up the shower so it was safe for me.
    We all can be grateful to have such a wonderful facility in

    Who will watch the watchmen? Four years ago, I posed that question in the run-up to reforming the John Doe law in Wisconsin when the abuses perpetrated by Government Accountability Board (GAB) Director Kevin Kennedy and Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm were revealed.
    This week, the attorney general provided important details into those abuses by describing the “weaponization” of the John Doe process by Kennedy, Chisholm and others. Wisconsin’s history of open, honest government, already tainted by the John Doe, is further stained by

    Well, the Republicans have made good on their promise to America. 
    The tax cuts and jobs act of 2017 will soon be law and will bring lower taxes for all and jobs aplenty. They promised. 
    Make sure you seize this opportunity to cash in on the coming bonanza as soon as the bill is signed into law. You can only assure the success of capitalism by embracing the rules of capitalism.
    Before the ink on the president’s signature is dry, make an appointment with

    Trail pass system best when you join local clubs

    Two years into an expanded snowmobile trail funding system that requires sled owners to purchase a trail pass in addition to having a valid public use registration, clubs have seen a significant increase in members and revenues for trail work.
    Annual trail passes cost $30 per snowmobile, but

    It is easier to picture a football in your mind than to appreciate the difference between tax reform and tax cuts. It is easier to explain why an effort at kicking a ball fails than to understand dynamic scoring or why tax cuts do not create promised jobs. 
    Charles Schulz, creator of “Peanuts,” made great use of symbols. His perennial strip with Lucy promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown provided much more than humor. It was richly symbolic, a metaphor for life.
    Imagine tax reform as a political football, with Lucy symbolizing

    We have recently found out that sexual harassment and other crimes allegedly committed by some of our duly-elected representatives in Washington, D.C., have yet another system in place that places them above the constituencies they represent.

    There have only been a couple references to this secret court they use in the mainstream media and I am curious as to why there has been no outrage about its existence.

    The Congressional Office of Compliance (OOC) handles these charges rather than
