  • In my lifetime, both the Democrats and Republicans have nominated presidential candidates who could actually do the job. We all had our preferences, and some years we won and other years lost.


  • It is disturbing that we see the concern of the people of New Hope over the continued expansion of high-capacity wells in the town and the Central Sands watershed that may severely effect water quality and quantity. And then we are reminded of the failure of the Republican-dominated Legislature to address these growing worries that have dried up Long Lake and threaten the existence of other central Wisconsin lakes, streams, rivers and wetlands.


  • The Rosholt Area Youth Football and Cheer Organization would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all who helped us kickoff our season Saturday, Aug. 13, with our Rosholt Stingers Pig Skin Pig Roast held at the Rosholt Fairgrounds.


  • I live on a cul-de-sac that is off County Highway HH and McDill Avenue. When we need to go anywhere, we must use HH. Since the recent resurfacing of HH, there has been a noticeable increase in the speed of motorists through this area. This can be evidenced by the number of times the Portage County police stop cars for excessive speed during those times when they can patrol it. Also the radar speed meter that has been placed along this stretch is flashing red far too often.


  • You will love to participate in the upcoming all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, at the Elks Club, 1132 Clark St., Stevens Point. Adults will eat for $10, children 12 and younger for $7. This also includes a side dish of salad.
