A record of results and an optimistic vision for the future
When we took office, Democrats in Madison had left Wisconsin facing a $3.6 billion deficit, job loss was rampant across the state and businesses were closing up shop. Northern Wisconsin knows this unfortunate reality better than most - the backward, failed liberal policies of the past did serious damage, and the need for greater economic opportunity was real.

A better idea: Investigation, not obstruction
At the outset of last week's Oneida County public hearing on a proposed metallic mining ordinance, the county's assistant corporation counsel, Michael Fugle, cautioned the crowd to stick to the ordinance language at hand, rather than address general beliefs about sulfide mining or other issues outside the hearing's scope, such as a possible mine in the town of Lynne.

Sulfide mining in a special-interest world
As Oneida County continues to write a new mining ordinance, and with pro-mining and anti-mining forces galvanized because of a huge zinc and mineral ore deposit in the county, we so far remain agnostic about the need to extract it, and whether it would be environmentally wise to do so.

Six reasons to still hate Obamacare
Remember Obamacare? The fight is far from over on the future of the Obama-era health insurance overhaul. Republicans are making a last-ditch effort this year to turn the program and the money over to the state. This isn't full Obamacare repeal, but it would make a world of sense. States would be free to experiment and find ways to reduce costs and provide better services. (subscriber access)

Bob Dylan and climate change
To the Editor:

Change just two letters in Bob Dylan's song, and his prophetic words ring true for our times: "... for the climes they are a changin'." The reality of climate change resulting from rising levels of greenhouse gases (GHS) caused by human activity is recognized as a life imperiling issue by all but the most obdurate. And this denial by some and inaction by too many will inevitably make today's problems far worse. (subscriber access)
