It has been over a year since Marlin Pomplun was killed at the intersection of Highway 21 and County Road “B”. There have been several near misses at this intersection due to the height of the hill on the west side of CO “B.”

 
CAP Services' Skills Enhancement Program recognizes 700th participant since 1991 Print E-mail

To the Editor,

Labor Day has come and gone.  For many, it’s the last long weekend to celebrate the summer season.  But it is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers whose contributions are the foundation of the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.  Its origins date back to 1885 and 1886 when municipal ordinances were passed to recognize workers. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation.  The first Labor Day law was passed by Oregon on Feb. 21, 1887, and more states followed.

To the Editor,

It is that time again, when the volunteers for the Waushara County Community Christmas Project begin our annual drive. This project provides food and gifts for “needy” families in Waushara County. Last year, we put together 430 holiday food baskets filled with canned goods, fresh fruit and vegetables, and a turkey or chicken for Christmas Dinner. In addition, over 700 gifts were distributed to the needy children.

Our White River (millpond) will never be what it was 100 or even 50 years ago, but we can make it as good as it can be! It will take the whole community working together as one.

I would like to thank the community of Wautoma and surrounding areas for their support of the recent benefit for a local resident suffering from Chronic Lyme Disease.

 
Residents of Coloma not in favor of slaughterhouse Print E-mail
Tuesday, September 10, 2013 9:58 AM

Over 126 people are against the slaughterhouse at the former Coloma Meats. The zoning board approved this in August 2013. I feel we have a right as citizens to not let this happen. So I encourage this not to go through at the county meeting to be held on Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. at the Waushara County Courthouse. Please attend to protest against this.

Chase congratulates Tustin BBQ team on job well done Print E-mail
Tuesday, September 10, 2013 9:54 AM

I just would like to congratulate the Tustin Chicken Barbecue team. They had the best chicken this summer, of all the chicken barbecues that I went to, again this year as in every year. Everyone says the same thing, it’s no wonder they sell out so early–everyone is getting to know how good it is year after year.

 
Coloma residents against incoming slaughterhouse Print E-mail
Tuesday, September 03, 2013 10:07 AM

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.

 
Thank your law enforcement members and servicemen and women Print E-mail

“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.
