Fest provides fun, funds

Written by

To the editor,
The Friends of Carver Roehl Park would like to thank everyone who attended our 15th annual Fall Fest on Oct. 1. Mother Nature certainly cooperated, as skies were sunny and temperatures mild, allowing families ample time to enjoy the scenic beauty of the park and the many activities. Jesse Walker provided entertaining music while children enjoyed face painting, crafts, coloring and gourd decorating, as well as a petting zoo sponsored by Clinton FFA.

Feel free to disagree — in a civil way

Written by

To the editor,
The saying “Making laws is like making sausage,” is attributed to the first chancellor of Germany, Otto von Bismarck. He meant it’s better not to see the process of law-making because it can be a messy process. However, the end product can be quite good if it has the right ingredients and is made the right way.

Gerrymandering limits the voice of the people

Written by

To the editor,
Redistricting was written into the Constitution as a legislative power that takes place every 10 years. This power led to some unique districts which led to the term gerrymandering in 1812. Has the use of redistricting for political reasons gone too far? Here in Wisconsin, the Assembly and Senate districts have been highly gerrymandered after the 2010 elections when the Republicans took control of the Legislature and governor’s mansion.

Republican tax plan means growth, jobs

Written by

To the editor,
We have all seen how complicated the tax code has become. Many of us have hired accountants during the tax season just to send our information into the Internal Revenue Service. Now, with a Republican-controlled government, change to the tax code is finally coming. The Republican plan lowers rates for individuals and families.
