Coloma residents against incoming slaughterhouse Print E-mail

On Aug. 22, the Waushara County Zoning and Planning  Board voted to rezone the old Coloma Meats property from Agriculture to M-1 Intensive Manufacturing. Although many people attended the meeting to voice their concerns and ask the board to deny the rezoning, the board members chose to approve Jesse Kessinich’s application. Coloma property owners collected 114 signatures on a petition and there were more than 12 letters submitted by citizens against this change of zoning as well as seven people that chose to speak. Kessinich, an employee, an investor, and an official from Pineries Bank, whom he is purchasing the building from, spoke in favor of the project. No neighbors attended that voiced a favorable opinion.

“Pastor Dan, we have a real bad situation here in Wautoma and it’s in your home.” Sheriff’s Deputy Lafe Hendrickson (also our youth director) called my cell phone just as Marie and I were finishing dinner on a patio at the Hilton Hotel in Marco Island, FL. The dangerous events were just unfolding as he called. They needed to know what kind of weapons I had in the house. Like many others in the area, I hunt. I told Lafe I had a 12-gauge shotgun, a 9mm pistol and my hunting rifle, a Colt Sauer 30-06 with a very good scope and a lot of power. My greatest fear was the young man finding my ammunition and harming someone, particularly a police officer or one of our neighbors. I know a squad car door or a typical bulletproof vest would not stop that much power.

I visited the Wautoma area the weekend of Aug. 16-18. My girlfriends and I parked at the boat landing at the corner of Hwy. 21 and 73 to walk around Silver Lake. When we returned and hour later, there was a Town of Marion $50 parking ticket on my windshield. Really?

Resident wants to balance the scale of justice Print E-mail

In the Aug. 6, 2013, edition of the Oshkosh Northwestern newspaper, I read that Senator Alberta Darling is upset that a motorist who struck and killed a bicyclist received only 90 days in jail. “Respect for life demands something more than 90 days,” Darling told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal. The issue was someone was killed, a very serious consequence. We have to balance the scale of justice in Wisconsin.

It all started when friends wanted to help friends. From a simple gesture of support in the beginning to a full blown benefit for our son, the love and compassion of this community has been overwhelming.

Over a year ago, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced it was seeking to revise NR115, the state administrative code that sets minimum standards for county shoreland zoning ordinances across Wisconsin. After working through the initial stages of the process, the rule changes were unveiled at the end of June, and public hearings are being held around the state through August.
