    Other Views: Petri has served area with quiet distinction

    Growing up in Fond du Lac during the 1950s, Tom Petri's days were not unlike those of countless other boys living in the city: He delivered newspapers for the Fond du Lac Commonwealth-Reporter and, among other odd jobs, painted houses and shoveled snow.

    Letter: Pedestrian bridge a waste of taxpayer money

    Back when the $25 million federal grant was given to Sheboygan County for the Non-Motorized Transportation Pilot Program, City Hall had the idea that some of that money could be used for a pedestrian bridge over the river in the area of the east terminus of Virginia Avenue, and it would rescue the lagging development of the South Pier District.

    Many opponents are not only rooting for the failure of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, they are doing what they can to make it fail, spreading fear about its impact and telling young people not to sign up. This is conduct unbecoming elected officials. It is one thing to oppose a federal law and work for its repeal, quite another to undermine it. It is the difference between predicting failure and working for failure.
