I am in total agreement with Daniel Atwood’s letter Saturday. Law enforcement is puzzled by the number of road fatalities? Obviously, the penalties for drunken driving and the enforcement thereof are not working, or people wouldn’t repeat the behavior six, 10 or 12 times.

It's the morning news, and here's what we want you to think: Don't criticize the Democrats for impeaching President Trump. They've been working for almost three years to impeach him on a phone call from seven months ago. It's OK to be outraged over the death of Qasem Soleimani, but keep quie…

As a concerned citizen, I believe we need to demand a fair and impartial impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate. It is essential that the trial allow open press coverage, relevant public documents and witness testimony from John Bolton, Rudy Giuliani, Mick Mulvaney, Rick Perry and Mike Pompeo,…

I can’t entirely understand why Rock County law enforcement officials are “puzzled” by Rock County’s lead in state per capita road fatalities (Page 1A, Dec. 29). Surely some of the contributing factors/reasons for this “distinction” appear every day in the “Public Record, Intoxicated Driving…

The drug problem in Janesville seems to be spiraling out of control. Lack of money and resources is the problem. We have a police department that lags other cities' departments in per-capita funding of personnel, and our district attorney's office has one of the highest plea bargaining rates…

I have read the whole Mueller report. It isn’t light reading, but you don’t have to be a lawyer to get through it. One point was that the grand jury concept was established by Article V of the Constitution and is not subject to presidential, congressional or court rulings for its authority.

My wife and I are about to make my third trip to the Philippines. When I was living in my fiancé’s family compound in Mindanao (the big, southern-most island), I had no car. I was on leave from my CNA job for five months and had a lot of time to think and ride my bicycle. This was Tagum city…

Despite the ridiculous impeachment of President Trump orchestrated by Democrats, it really is impressive how President Trump is progressing on his 2016 campaign promises. Thanks to Trump’s leadership, America is stronger and more secure, and we have the best economy in the history of our cou…

Since when was seeking the truth something to argue about? If the Trump administration weren’t allowed to play this shell game with the truth, shielded by the entire conservative Congress, we wouldn’t have this constant drip, drip, drip of corruption.

Republicans are complaining that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is violating the U.S. Constitution by not forwarding the articles of impeachment to the Senate. The reason is because she believes that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican majority are not taking the articles o…

Newly released unredacted documents state that the military aid for Ukraine was withheld at the explicit direction of the president of the United States. An email from Michael Duffey at the Office of Management and Budget to the Pentagon states: “Clear direction from POTUS to continue to hold.”

Why does President Trump need to be held accountable for his use of governmental power, the power he used to threaten and withhold aid for Ukraine? Should it be OK to use the full power of the U.S. government against a political opponent and an American citizen? Imagine if it is ruled legal.…

I am saddened to see that there are plans being considered to make harassment of sports officials a class A misdemeanor. Why can't we all just get along and behave like decent human beings? It's a game--all that's at stake is pride in these games. Sports are held above all to have fun. This …

A major cause of civil war is when people believe that their government is illegitimate. I’ve previously written that I believe that one of President Obama’s intentions was to divide our people and to introduce anarchy. We have the violent communist/socialist/fascist group oxymoronically kno…

In April, the citizens of Wisconsin will have the opportunity to vote for Marsy's Law, an amendment to the state constitution which would help protect the rights of crime victims. Marsy's Law would, among other things, strengthen the right of crime victims to consult with the prosecutor, be …

The redevelopment of Ruger Avenue from Wright Road to Highway 14 turned out really great. However, when it gets dark out and you stop at the four-way stop of Ruger Avenue and Wright Road, it’s hard to see at the intersection. It’s a shame no lighting was put there. You have Grainger, SSI, Bl…

It doesn't happen to me very often, but today I'm proud to be an American. Congressional Democrats have done their duty in attempting to bring a corrupt president to account, even though it may very well cost them politically. I'm reminded of a line from Richard Hooker (circa 1594): "posteri…

I take it as a vile personal insult that Donald Trump brands Democrats as “the America-hating left.” I am a lifelong Democrat and proud of it. I love my country, as has my family for 400 years. My direct ancestor, Stephen Hopkins, came over on the Mayflower. Ancestors Capt. Caleb Cone and Oz…

Why are the Republicans so resistant to protecting the rights of all citizens to vote in an election? The U.S. House passed a new voting rights bill, and all but one Republican voted against. Our country is supposed to be a democracy, but the Republicans seem to have a goal to disenfranchise…

My 88-year-old mother and I went to Tehran three years ago on a friendship/study tour for two weeks. We rode on a small tour bus with a handful of world travelers and Unitarians. We visited archeological sites and museums, mosques, palaces, tourist stops and an elementary school. We donated …

It is trite to say that adolescents are confused about their sexuality. Now they have to decide whether they are boys or girls, with the encouragement that now declaring themselves a different sex is a way to be admired by peers. Some try it for a while and then go back, like with a fad diet…

Fire departments today face many challenges such as increasing call volumes, increasing resource demands and limited staffing (career and volunteer). With no additional state shared revenue and the negative impact the expenditure restraint program has on growing communities, fire departments…

In September, the state Department of Public Instruction manipulated school performance data to obscure the performance of students participating in Wisconsin’s school choice programs. DPI withheld timely release of data showing school choice students outperformed students at public schools.
