  • Letter to the Editor: Hoping Cooperation Will Continue

    Last Saturday, May 7, NWTC and Liberty Grove held a joint open house at Liberty Grove Town Hall. As residents of Liberty Grove, we would like to thank all the NWTC and Liberty Grove staff who made the open house such a success. The open house was a very interesting and enjoyable event. On the […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Wonderful Tribute to Roy

    Myles – what a wonderful, gentle tribute to Roy Lukes! Your article is beautiful to read. Thank you for starting off my day by featuring Roy (and Charlotte) – and in so doing, helping me to remember to be more aware and mindful of the world around me. The Lukes’ have added so much to […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Inform Public about PCB Contamination of Fish

    The Fox River Natural Resource Trustees released a draft update to the Restoration Plan & Environmental Assessment for a 30-day public comment period on how money should be spent from funds assessed to PCB polluters for damages. The comment period ends on May 6. With a mission to protect human health and the environment, it […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Always A Sad Goodbye When Dr. Roger Kuhns Leaves Town

      It was with a heavy heart that I bid farewell to Roger after Wednesday night’s talk (April 27) at Björklunden, sponsored by the Climate Change Coalition of Door County (CCCDC). It is an unfortunate “twist of fate” that he has been forced to leave his beloved county for work reasons, when his expertise is […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Just Say No to Neonics

    I must comment on “The Changing Landscape of Orchard Management” feature in the recent Sustainability Issue. The article describes the severe challenges posed by aggressive alien insects to the production of marketable fruits. “Finding the balance that will keep the orchards profitable while maintaining a healthy environment” will be especially difficult if one of the […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Gibraltar Job Fair Success

    Thank you to the 30 employers representing 38 businesses that attended the Gibraltar Job Fair on Thursday, April 28. The event was a win-win for both students and employers. We look forward to hosting the event again next year based on the feedback from our participants. And a special shout out to our DECA hosts […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Anyone Notice Two Russell Feingolds?

    It would be difficult not to notice that there is a Feingold running for the U.S. Senate as the airways are collapsing under the weight of Feingold commercials breathlessly announcing that he has a plan to keep America safe; that he will, if necessary, singlehandedly repel all evildoers from our shores and do all sorts […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Kitten Season Is Here Again

      Do not immediately assume that a litter of kittens found without a mama cat nearby has been abandoned. Mama may be hunting, if feral, or simply going back home to get something to eat and drink. If you do determine that the kittens have somehow lost their mom, and you realize that they are […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Respect Boundaries

    Dear trespasser, I saw you eating lunch, taking a break from your bike ride, in a place you shouldn’t be. You are right, the view is beautiful from this private country lane. I heard your car come down the winding driveway, inching further and further past the trees and my sleeping dog, until you could […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Political Flatus

    Immediately after Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson announced his candidacy for Representative 8th District, Pat Garrett, Wisconsin GOP spokesman, took off the gloves and attacked Nelson’s character with the following tirade [in a statement from the Republican Party of Wisconsin]: “Over the course of his political career, Nelson has promoted the radical left-wing agenda, growing […]

  • Letter to the Editor: To My Supporters

    First of all, I want you to know how very dear, how very precious you all are to me, those of you I have known for years and those of you who are new friends. The greatest pleasure of this campaign, and there have been many, was walking door to door with my walking companions, […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Sturgeon Bay Needs a Fourth Bridge

    Yes, the City of Sturgeon Bay needs a fourth bridge, a bridge to unite a divided city. Though Thad Birmingham retains his position as Mayor, challenger Laurel Brooks lost by a very narrow margin of 52 votes with the final count of 1,894 to 1,842. Voters responded with a clear message that there needs to […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Ted Cruz Is Scary

    The claims made by Ted Cruz that he is a religious conservative constitutionalist are not what we think of as American in this day and age. He does not want to accept all people as equal, as it states in the Constitution. The first amendment to the Constitution separates church and state and mandates that […]

  • Letter to the Editor: New Reality of Sturgeon Bay Politics

    An apocryphal bit of advice that famed Packers coach Vince Lombardi gave to one of his players went something like this: “When you go into the end zone, act like you’ve been there before.” Based upon the reactions that I have been reading in the blogosphere following the recent mayoral and city council elections, this […]

  • Letter to the Editor: State of Our Environment

    As April 22, 2016, Earth Day, approaches one has to wonder how our state is faring in aspiring to unite, appreciate and respect our environment. We should all be mindful and cognizant of what the legislators and the governor are doing with our natural resources. Since January they have pushed though many bills that are […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Thank You to the Community

    Northern Door Children’s Center (NDCC) is deeply grateful to everyone who helped us make our 2016 Super Bowl-A-Thon fundraising event on Saturday, April 2, so successful. First and foremost, thanks a million to Penny Anschutz and the amazing staff of the Sister Bay Bowl for hosting us. We couldn’t do it without you! We are […]

  • Letter to the Editor: The Party I Will Not Vote For

    During this presidential campaign we have heard the candidates state their goals. We have heard abolish Obamacare, abolish the EPA, build a wall, rebuild the middle class, make college tuition free and others, all of which can only be accomplished if a supportive Congress is in place. Given the uncertainty of voting for what has […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Sturgeon Bay Is Moving Forward

    I have noticed a few letters coming from people outside of Sturgeon Bay about how Sturgeon Bay should be run and what should not be built there. Recently there was one saying Mayor Thad Birmingham would not respond to his emails about what he wanted in Sturgeon Bay and how he felt about certain issue. […]

  • Letter to the Editor: To the Residents of Sister Bay

    An election is coming up on Tuesday, April 5th. There are multiple people running for village trustee for the Sister Bay Village Board. I’m writing this to encourage to vote for Denise Bhirdo. Speaking from personal experience, I have worked with Denise when I was on the village board for 16 years and she was […]

  • Letter to the Editor: Vote for Laurel Brooks

    A vote for Laurel Brooks for Mayor of Sturgeon Bay is a vote for better local government. Laurel Brooks is experienced, intelligent, and passionate and will be a great Mayor and spokesperson for the City of Sturgeon Bay. It is long past time that the “good old boys” are thrown out of office here in […]
