Neshkoro resident praises Community Choir performance
Tuesday, July 16, 2013 10:55 AM

After a month of hearing awful news of the 19 firefighters deaths out west, the conflict in Egypt, the airplane crash in San Francisco, along with some personnel stress, including fighting those dreaded mosquitoes, July 13 dawned with the expectation of “it’s the Neshkoro Community Choir performance tonight”.

Getting all set for the Freedom Fest Parade, there was a bit of a wait for parade staging.

Want to know where your tax dollars are being spent?

You’ve all heard before, “get involved with your local governments.” If not directly as a representative, certainly at a minimum keep up with what’s going on by reading the minutes from your town, village, city, or county board meetings. My frustration level has peaked over the past few months with some of our representative’s decisions.

We buy the Argus weekly when we arrive in Wautoma from our home in Milwaukee. One of the things we like about coming to our cottage in Wautoma is the small town feel you all have.

Battles continue over high-capacity wells
Thursday, June 27, 2013 8:32 AM

To the editor,

This letter is about our ongoing 2+ year battle to stop the reckless, over-permitting of high capacity wells by the DNR, especially in our already severely water constricted Central Sands area, and to save valuable public waters of WI, including particularly, the precious Waushara lake I grew up on, Pleasant Lake.

To the editor,

I wanted to share my strong positive feelings about the Foster Care System in Waushara County. I am so very fortunate to have received past services from social workers who helped me survive in my childhood.

Our kids deserve better
Wednesday, June 12, 2013 5:47 AM

State Superintendent Tony Evers issued a statement on Joint Committee on Finance (JFC) middle of the night actions, including expansion of the school voucher program statewide.

“Our children are caught in the crossfire of an ideologically driven expansion of school vouchers that is financially reckless and academically unproven. The Joint Committee on Finance passed a backroom deal that harms our kids. It does too little to improve funding for public education and does nothing to address well-documented financial and achievement problems in private and religious schools in Wisconsin’s voucher programs.

Area resident comments on high-capacity wells
Wednesday, June 12, 2013 5:41 AM

I am writing this letter to add my voice to the discussion about how the ever increasing number of high-capacity wells in Waushara County is drying up our lakes and streams. To the list of myths being perpetrated by agriculture, I would like to add a couple more.

I will also comment on the recent decision by the Legislature through the joint finance committee to prevent the DNR from considering the impact of multiple wells in the area when evaluating applications for new irrigation wells. This action has dealt a severe blow to the protection of ground and surface waters in the county. Unless something is done to reverse the decision there is no way to prevent more lakes and streams from drying up.
