Question for Aphephilia, doesn't it make you even a little mad that as cigarette sales have fallen the tobacco companies have increased the nicotine in their products? Why do they do that? Hmm, I wonder. I would make ...

Re: Seek your input regarding deer hunting

I don't know where my daughter hunts, somewhere off Hwy 8, but she saw deer. Got an 8 point buck and a doe. I saw lots of deer while driving over there, from Chippewa Falls to Tomahawk, not counting the 15 road killed deer.

Re: Death of FES Student

The person who provided alcohol to an underage drinker certainly should be held accountable. At least here in MN they now can be sentenced to jail. The underaged friends who too are drinking also bear some accountability. The community holds some responsibility. Everyone looks the other way, denies ...

The death of a young person is always tragic. A death that could have been prevented is doubly tragic.

Re: Time to put our foot down on secondhand smoke

I'm kind of surprised, now that I think about it, that OSHA isn't more involved in this issue. The purpose of OSHA is to ensure safe working environments for employees by employers. Smoke is a well recognized health hazard and as such, when it is in the workplace, should come under OSHA regulations....
