Support for Griffin Jones
To the Editor:

A while back, I was asked who I thought I would endorse for the U.S. Senate and I really didn't know what to say. I, along with a lot of American citizens, were feeling pretty disappointed in our governmental process. (subscriber access)

Trump and Harley-Davidson
To the Editor:

You know, with Trump's recent rantings about Harley-Davidson moving some production overseas to avoid tariffs that he is responsible for, and telling them that such a move "will be the beginning of the end" for Harley, and also threatening them with retaliatory taxes. I have three simple questions for Trump: (subscriber access)

Let's hear what Gedicks has to say
To the Editor:

As someone who was denounced in the pages of The Lakeland Times in the early 1990s by the notorious anthropologist James Clifton over our different positions on Ojibwe treaty rights, I want to comment on the relevance of Richard Moore's rehearsal of the circumstances around the conviction of the so-called anti-mining activist Al Gedicks almost 50 years ago.

Moore/Walker for president
To the Editor:

First, the pleasantries, great paper. Incredible stories with nothing held back. You print actual news and a lot of it. Never change. Second the legal disclaimer, Moore/Walker after four more years of Trump. And now the meat and potatoes, knife control, welfare/government support, and Trumponomics hit it right in the head.

Family Values
To the Editor:

What is the value of a family? Is that different from having family values? I was reflecting upon this question as I put my sick 12-month-old son to bed the other night. (subscriber access)

The Climate Hoax
To the Editor:

"Climate hysteric!" "Cassandra!" You know them: anyone who is concerned about our deepening climate crisis is irrational and hyperemotional.

It is a clever complement to the more familiar "climate hoax." (subscriber access)

ATV/UTV on Town Roads
To the Editor:

There has been a lot of discussion regarding ATV/UTVs in Vilas County, and more particularly within Boulder Junction. While I do not own a business in town, I do try to support them and I do realize their importance. (subscriber access)

Government doesn't learn
To the Editor:

On the 19th of June, the Oneida County Board decided to preemptively allow sulfide mines in areas of our county, zoned 1-A Forestry and General Use, so that a mining company could avoid having to rezone the area.

This "obstructionist" disagrees
Gregg Walker and Richard Moore - Enough already! If you feel better about calling mining opponents in the Town of Lynne obstructionists, fine! But stop telling your readership that you know what we in the Town of Lynne want and how we feel.

My changing view on ATVs in Boulder Junction
Recently there has been a lot of discussion, fear and worry about the possibility of ATVs being allowed in Boulder Junction. These feelings were expressed by many at the ATV informational meeting on Tuesday (June 5). I have never been a strong supporter of their use and probably will never own one; however, now I am a supporter of allowing limited access to the downtown to help our business sector and I want to share with the public some information that I have learned.

Bob Dylan's climate change reconsidered

The right to protest
Our constitution divides our government into three branches, the legislative represented by the congress, the judicial represented by the courts and the executive represented by the president.

Response to 'Bobby Kennedy and Donald Trump' letter
It's kind of ironic to have a Robert Kennedy admirer criticize "grifters, sycophants, hucksters, and incompetents" of the Trump administration (Letters, June 12). If the Kennedy clan is anything, Jeff Laadt should know that it has been a decades long magnet for world class grifters, sycophants, and hucksters - never mind the long list of incompetents in the extended family itself.

No social license

Bobby Kennedy and Donald Trump
To the Editor:

On June 6, the nation took time to note the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Robert Kennedy. The memory of that event is, and will be forever, a part of the collective consciousness of an entire generation who lived through that time of unprecedented political and cultural upheaval.

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)
