Duffy's Town Hall meeting TO THE EDITOR Mr. Duffy's behavior does not match his discussion of equal opportunity and respect. When he misrepresented global warming and individuals quietly disagreed, they were scolded for rudeness. Manipulating supporters in the audience, Duffy spun issues to play on their emotions. His fans cheered and jeered at his description of democrats' untruths and corruption. Playing favorites and dividing neighbors distracts from important work.

How we're preparing kids for adulthood TO THE EDITOR Life it too ironic to fully understand. It takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence. We tell our children the correct way to live is to grow up to be successful. But success can't be measured.

Love Baskets needed a shake up TO THE EDITOR Love Baskets must have needed to shake it up a little―just as we were getting comfortable. Our organization (comprised of local community representatives, The Salvation Army, and Toys for Toys) gifts toys, etc. to families needing help in New Richmond and Somerset. Just as the implementation of the program was functioning quite smoothly, we experienced multiple challenges.
Jesus is the reason for the season TO THE EDITOR
Trashing an election TO THE EDITOR Before dawn on the funeral day of George H. W. Bush — who left a hand-written letter for his successor, supporting civil transfer of power — the Republican majority in the Wisconsin Legislature commemorated the day by passing hurried bills limiting powers of newly-elected Gov. Evers and A.G Kaul. Also, they made it difficult or impossible for some citizens to enroll in
Unsubstantiated smears TO THE EDITOR Making a personal attack against some group of people in hopes of germinating audience bias has the label, "poisoning the well."

Victim of road rage attack thanks law enforcement TO THE EDITOR Editor's note: It's not normally our policy to publish letters to the editor anonymously. We made an exception in this case, to protect the identity of a victim who wished to express thanks as part of her healing process. Please see the story on page A1. In the early morning hours of Nov. 21 I was a victim of a random act of violence. I am okay, and I will be okay. But I want everyone who lives in this community to know what an amazing law enforcement team we have.
