Time to step aside

What's good about Sister Bay? Your columnist getting the latest, greatest news to you, and getting it correct. Unfortunately, I was totally gullible and "punked" by another Door County paper who wrote their article on the sale of the big mansion on Beach Road in Liberty Grove as an April Fool's story. I picked it up later while out of town and did not catch the joke. In fact, it sounded like a pretty good idea to me.

Sorry everyone - but it's totally embarrassing. I feel like a fool. No excuses. My fault. As a result, I don't think I'm a credible reporter of the Sister Bay scene any longer and so will give up my column. I apologize to the Advocate for any embarrassment I have caused them.

Anyone out there who enjoys writing and will pick up the Sister Bay column, contact the editor of the Advocate. They are a great organization to write for. And now I've ended my last historic sentence to you with a preposition. Oh well.

There are former English students of mine sitting at their text messages and breathing a sigh of relief. At least I gave Keta Steebs a laugh up in heaven.

Rose sale for life

A friend gave me a copy of this poem some time ago that he used in honor of his mother, and I thought I'd share it with everyone.

To Mom

A mother's love is something

No one can explain.

It's made of deep devotion,

Of sacrifice and pain.

It's endless and unselfish,

Enduring come what may,

Nothing can destroy it

Or take that love away.

Here is a rose, a gift of beauty,

A symbol of life and a sign of my love.

Area churches will be holding their annual Mother's Day Rose Sale. Beautiful, long-stemmed, red and white roses will be available after all services Saturday and Sunday.

Both rose are a symbol of life. Along with the pro-life red rose, the white rose is a symbol and sign of love for those who lost a child.

This annual sale is sponsored by the Wisconsin Right to Life Door County Chapter.

Thanks for your help in Namur

The Namur Belgian Heritage Foundation would like to thank everyone who participated in the success of our booyah and bread luncheon on April 14 at the center.

A special thank-you to our booyah cooks, David and Kevin; to the ladies who baked the excellent homemade breads and desserts; and all the volunteers. We would also like to thank Paul Robinson for providing wonderful piano music for everyone's enjoyment.

Our next event will be a Belgian Waffle Breakfast with all-you-can-eat breakfast trippe (a Belgian sausage) and waffles on June 23. We look forward to seeing you.

Term limits bill is overdue

State Rep. Garey Bies, unlike your fellow politicians, you seem to be introducing an inordinate number of bills lately. I have one more for your consideration.

I recently contacted the Wisconsin Board of Elections, and inquired how to get a proposition on the ballot for term limits for our politicians. I was told the only way is a politician has to propose it in bill form. I thought how interesting. I need to contact a professional politician to propose a bill that might end their career.

I suggest two four-year terms for all politicians. If this number is available, Bill 86.
