EDITOR: What is Daily Herald Media's great interest in the Village? How many articles rehashing the same material is this newspaper going to print?
Under the guise of helping the village, the newspaper and some of our residents seem to be waging a campaign to undermine the village's ability to attract home buyers and businesses. I resent that these articles and negative comments in the newspaper are causing a division among village residents and affecting our property values.
Despite this, the mill area has been sold and this business is preparing to start operations, albeit on a much smaller scale than a paper mill. The gas station has been sold and should soon be open. The formerly mill-owned homes east of the river are selling, as are some lots.
Give the village time to adjust to the consequences of the mill's closing and the short-term tax effect. Daily Herald Media and Wausau City Council member Keene Winters should stop pushing their agendas and let the village of Brokaw handle its own business.
