Chase congratulates Tustin BBQ team on job well done
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
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.

With the excitement of a new school year beginning, it can be easy for kids to forget to put safety first.  It’s a good time to review a few basic safety tips to help get the new school year off to a good start.

 
Thank your law enforcement members and servicemen and women

“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.

 
Tourist friendly? I think not!

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?

 
Keeping the dream alive with equal opportunity
Written by Tony Evers, State Superintendent   
Tuesday, August 27, 2013 10:07 AM

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

I Have a Dream,

Aug. 28, 1963

Aug. 28, 2013, marks the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. From the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., Dr. King shared with the world that the dream of equality for all was not realized, but it was possible.

Resident wants to balance the scale of justice
Written by Tom Markowski, Redgranite

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.

 
Significant rewrite of state's shoreland zoning regulations
Written by Michael Engleson, Interim Executive Director of Wisconsin Lakes   
Tuesday, August 20, 2013 10:23 AM

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.
