On Janesville approaching overdose deaths record: It’s nearly impossible for people to receive help. That’s why they continue with their addiction. If they walk into an ER and ask for help, they are just treated for current symptoms and sent on their way. What are these addicts to do? The county would benefit from a treatment center that had genuine staff wanting to help these people get clean.

No one forced these people to take heroin. NO ONE. Narcan is just an enabler to save their life so they can go on to their next fix. They should get the first shot of Narcan free. Every one after that, they pay for upfront in cash. I am sick of these non-productive members of society wasting my tax dollars so they can continue to shoot up over and over again.

On Tuesday editorial, “Let bars sell alcohol for outdoor events”: Why is alcohol needed if there is an event downtown, or anywhere? Aren’t there enough drunk people as it is? Why encourage more? It would also then let teens drink because how would the police department monitor everyone? Makes no sense. Everyone can have lots of fun without alcohol.

The drunks will still get drunk, whether inside or outside. There are plenty of law-abiding citizens that may like to have a glass of wine at an event.

On first indictments in Mueller investigation: Was that a click of a domino hitting another domino I just heard?


I think you might have heard the Democrats pounding their heads against a wall.


Wislady has cemented her role as an apologist for Trump the traitor and the rest of his treasonous cabal.


Gandalf, I hope you have solid proof to call our president a traitor. Not opinion, innuendo or feelings. FACTS! This is not apologizing for President Trump. Rather it’s demanding the respect for the office that is part of our tradition.

On House Speaker Paul Ryan’s tax reform push: Paul Ryan is stuck in a hard place, trying to do the right thing while walking through lands of two headed snakes! I want him to succeed but maybe walking away is the most honorable thing to do!

—Charles Fox

On 500th anniversary of the Reformation: There are over 30,000 Christian denominations. I hope they get this whole thing sorted out before it’s too late for my salvation.


On Sunday editorial, “Time to back a new Milton High School”: The Gazette editors have not met a new tax they didn’t like.


It’s a shame that the editors felt they had to stoop to snarky remarks to make their point against the opposition to the referendum. Next up, they’ll write an editorial about how awful it is that so many show so much disrespect for people who express opposing opinions.

—Bill Schuldt

Again, no reference to redrawing district lines. Janesville has room. Milton doesn’t. Is this really too hard to figure out?


On Wednesday Sound Off comment about disability parking permits: “Operating a motor vehicle when a DIS ID permit is hanging from the rear view mirror is a safety hazard and creates an obstruction to a driver’s clear view through the front windshield. Violators may be fined up to $100.”—Disabled parking privileges information, Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
