I disagree with letter writer John Lukan’s view that “global warming is a blip in the climate cycle” (May 6, Page 4A). Yes, there have been huge climatic changes in the past that had nothing to do with humans, but this one is caused by burning fossil fuels. Consider these facts: 1) The fossi…

I was extremely excited reading the Friday story (Page 1A) about Blackhawk Community Credit Union intending to purchase the original First National Bank building on West Milwaukee Street. The credit union has plans to restore the building to its 1918 appearance under direction of CEO Sherri Stumpf.

The Washington Examiner reported that the "recently released transcript of Department of Justice lawyer Bruce Ohr’s congressional testimony confirms that the DOJ and FBI abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act process to obtain a court order to surveil former Trump campaign adviser …

Regarding the Friday story (Page 2A) about unemployment dropping to 2.8%, that pretty much tells it all. It shows how well this state and our country are doing since this president has been in office! This president has been doing just as he stated he would. It has been a very long time sinc…

I would just like to thank the committee, Department of Natural Resources and the city of Janesville politicians who voted on the removal of the Monterey Dam. Do any one of these so-called do-gooders know what they did to the fishery from Centerway Dam to Afton? I know they are not sportsmen…

The theme for this year’s emergency medical services week brings attention to the fact that our EMS providers routinely go “beyond the call.” We know that they are a committed, caring group of men and women that help save lives routinely. What we often underestimate is how their contribution…

Who in their right mind would think of allowing homeless people to park overnight in Palmer Park? Why is the city of Janesville determined to violate this beautiful park? This is the second proposal in as many months trying to use Palmer Park to accommodate projects that have other options a…

In order to appease pro-life groups, Republicans in the Legislature are wasting time on an unnecessarily redundant “born-alive” bill. “Pro-life” would be better measured by extending health-care coverage to tens of thousands of Wisconsin citizens, allowing medical marijuana for people suffer…

National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are beating the Iran war drum loudly. The Bolton/Pompeo drum beating along with an embittered president, who is looking for distractions from his current public relations debacle, could well lead to another disastrous w…

“Our nation has no right to expect it will always have wise, humane rulers sincerely attached to the principles of the Constitution. Wicked men, ambitious of power, with hatred of liberty and law, may fill the place one occupied by Washington and Lincoln.” So said Supreme Court Justice David…

I would like to personally thank Mr. Kenneth Haugom for his Wednesday letter to the editor. Mr. Haugom’s letter addresses a perspective that I know reflects the feelings of many Milton School District residents. His identification of those responsible for the smear campaign was extremely accurate.

In the past two months, I and other YMCA members have noted much improved maintenance. This "new look" gives a boost to members' workout attitudes, enhances the overall exercise regimens and fosters greater exchange of views in locker rooms and hallways. I am extremely pleased and wish to th…

Regarding the Wednesday letter from Richard Snyder about “local” artists, here are a few observations I hope will be helpful. First, “local” status and “regional” status are how local and state boards separate or filter out those the boards want to feature and those they don’t. Some arts boa…

Once again we’ve had another mass shooting at a synagogue in California, the second synagogue shooting in six months. Since the Columbine shooting 20 years ago, Congress has hidden behind the NRA’s excuses of mental illness, extremism, hate or some other aspect of American culture. It's neve…

“God is great, God is good…” is part of a common table grace. Regarding God’s greatness, the recent phenomenal discovery and awesome pictures of the black hole some 155 million light years from earth illustrates this! Also baffling is the ability of scientists to have developed a network of …

Someone has a hearing problem. I’m unsure if it is myself or the administration. I thought I heard the Milton School Board direct the district administration to obtain three bids for the pool renovation at a January meeting. Since this meeting, the administration has only secured one bid. Wh…

The question is, why do we need a Milton School Board? Every issue that the administration comes up with, the board rubber stamps without question. The issues concerning the stipends were simply approved as a pay increase for Superintendent Tim Schigur. Getting your doctorate should not simp…

It's time to act on drug prices. I recently tried to order an anti-eczema drug, and a 30g tube was $230 through my Medicare Part D insurance, $460 without insurance. I checked with my Canadian authorized pharmacy and could get 60g for $50. It is time for Congress to take real action to reduc…

I picked up trash in Palmer Park on Saturday because I hate to see the trash in a beautiful park. I picked up three diapers that were just thrown on the ground and one soiled pair of child's underwear left on a picnic table bench. There was also a broken glass bottle by a pavilion that hadn'…

I have not seen much reported about the public's testimony at the April 5 state budget hearing in Janesville. I feel compelled to report what I heard from 10 a.m. until I left at 4:15 p.m.. Overall, speakers favored Gov. Tony Evers' budget. Well-covered issues included increased funding for …
