Re: School days

It saves the taxpayer 5 days of gas and upkeep for busses, bus drivers salaries, meals, teacher's salaries, operating expenses for keeping the school open. If you do the math, it's quite a bit of money saved or put to a better use or school program perhaps underfunded. It's about the money, more abo...

Photography

I really would like to commend all the photographers on here who capture the wildlife in the Tomahawk area. From these beautiful swans on this weeks front page, to the eagles, the mountain lion a while back. It just amazes me how well these photos really are, and I enjoy seeing a new one each week, ...

Re: Obamacare

Absolutely it is for a profit. Medical education and college tuitions are not free in this country. How can we expect new Drs. to pay all their own education for 8 years of medical school, malpractice insurance and work for non for profit wages? Until the country offer's free college (also like in E...

I think the USA is #38 because we are overweight and lazy here for the most part; drink, smoke, do not watch our cholesterol levels, eat 3x the normal portion size, take less vacations and on and on. Europeans walk and ride bikes, eat a healthy diet, rarely anything pre packaged or fast food, and ge...

Re: Tomahawk Puppy Mill

I bet with a little patience and training, any of those puppies would work for you. Don't forget what a "puppy mill" is, and those dogs were probably caged 90% of the time with no training, waiting to be sold commercially. If you went to a pet shop(where unfortunately many of these were pr...

Re: Good Samaritan could be jailed

The defense or prosecuting team (which ever side he falls on) should pay his flight and room and board to testify in their behalf if he is that badly needed. It is the norm in cases involving people from out of the area for the lawyers to pay all expenses for key witnesses & experts to appear in...

Re: Lost Dog

Being from Florida, I know of a few hunters who use dogs to hunt and track the wild hogs down here, along with other animals in a pack setting. If the dog doesn't track, is slow or late in returning, many times they leave them, or even shoot them in the woods. It is horrific, and not saying that thi...

Re: We’re in this together

I have to agree with the first poster. Everyone uses the road, and the entire home owner's in the city limits should be tax assessed and divided equally, not just the 31 people who are in front of the construction and have to be burdened with the cost, noise and inconvenience to boot. It is a city i...

We have tolerance in our military, all public offices, in our classrooms, in our politics. I believe allowing a gay youth to join a gro...

Re: Changes in the electoral college vote

If the voting went as live cast, you do not call an election until Alaska and HI voted, or a clear landslide. Stupid they do this anyway. All the early voters would already be tabulated as with military, because they went early. You would have the names of the candidates and their numbers underneath...

Re: Changes in the electoral college vote

The whole country needs to do away with the electoral college vote. It is a non accurate way of counting votes. Absentee ballots, military votes, early voters are not even counted until weeks after the winner has already been declared, so why bother voting? So much voter fraud now because of lack of...

Actually did not know you have no bike lanes yet up there on your streets. I have been in Florida 26 years and 99% of all roads except interstates have a bike lane. Granted, you could not travel an ATV in a bike lane, even if you had them. My personal opinion, just like mopeds, mini bikes, they shou...

I 100% agree with Old Scout ATV's are made for trials, not municipal paved roads with a speed limit. However this passed WI legislature through the state is beyond me, heck, they cannot even go the legal speed limit. If they are made for the roads, they MUST have a special lane, such as a bike lane ...

Of course it is the dog owner's fault. No doubt. Fine the owner, make stiffer penalties. Sometimes a dog may however escape through a fence, jump out, dig under intentionally, and of course you have pet owners who let heir dog out for awhile unattended, and forget about them miles out in the middle ...
