Another great idea?

State Sen. Frank Lasee wrote an article for wisopinion.com suggesting the selling of the least valuable state-owned land. I wonder who gets to decide which land is the least valuable?

He also suggested maybe selling off the land for private use like farming. Actually, "private use could mean anything. I'm sure whoever the decision maker is, they would surely sell to the highest bidder. Maybe farming would be "CAFOs" or maybe just plain old developers.

I wonder if he thinks we all just fell off the turnip truck.

Take Action for Deserving Animals

I am writing to you today in support of the Door County Humane Society's new TaDa (Take Action for Deserving Animals) campaign, which has been established to help pay the remainder of the mortgage due on their new building and expansion project. I have been a hands-on weekly volunteer at DCHS for the past two years and have found it to be the most rewarding experience of my life.

When I began volunteering, I was shocked at the amount of animals located in such a small space. The original building was built in 1999 to house 28 cats and 20 dogs. On average, there are 150 cats in residence and 6-10 dogs. With never an empty cage, and literally no space in which to work, the new building and expansion project became a necessity.

Thanks to the dedicated efforts of many volunteers and the generosity of numerous donors the new building and expansion project is almost complete, but financial assistance is still needed to ensure the new building is mortgage-free. DCHS cannot meet the day-to-day needs of the animals it serves and pay a mortgage. We need your help! Please consider donating to the TaDa Campaign today. Contact Carrie @dooranimals.com.

Thanks, volunteers

Thank you, thank you, all you volunteers who helped put flags on veterans' graves for Memorial Day.

Thank you, Sevastopol High School, for allowing your well-mannered, hard-working FFA to help us the last six years. Thank you, Mr. John Adams and Sevastopol Retired Teachers.

Thank you to the Volunteer Club and all the volunteers who called to help, including Staff Sgt. Jared Spude, Dan Lagdon, U.S. Coast Guard, Ed Ireland and the Sturgeon Bay City Council.

You all made a big job go easy; thank you. Help like this when we need it makes the time we spent overseas worth it. Hats off to all of you from VFW Post 3088.
