Troy Township: Some want storm sirens
During the public comment section of the town of Troy meeting Thursday, June 9, a resident raised concerns about the lack of warning sirens for severe weather. Acknowledging that they are not "completely meant to be heard indoors," he argued that they would still be good to have...

Letter: You'll be impressed by this candidate
I have finally had the opportunity to meet and talk with Shelly Moore and I like her. Shelly is intelligent, articulate, and aware of the troubling issues facing our state right now. She is also ready and willing to talk with and listen to her constituents -- unlike our current "representative." Shelly...

Letter: A fellow can strike it rich fixing bumps
I recently heard that the town of Troy was going to consider spending up to $20,000 to fix a bump inside the entry road to Troy Burne. Having never seen a $20,000 bump I drove down there. I first securely fastened my seatbelt and even put on a helmet so that I wouldn't hit my head...

Letter: 'This is not what I voted for'
The campaign to recall Sen. Harsdorf has been a resounding success in Senate District 10. An historic event occurred when over 146% of the required signatures for recall were submitted to the Government Accountability Board in Madison. Thank you to the hundreds of citizens who...

Letter: We're not servants
Finally, it's clear: Scott Walker and his Republican cronies think of public employees as members of the servant class. We plow their streets, pick up their garbage, care for their children during school hours, and protect their (frequently gated) communities. But, as servants,...

Letter: Unethical governor
It is truly reprehensible that Gov. Scott Walker considered "planting troublemakers" ("we thought about that") in the crowds of peaceful demonstrators at our state Capitol in Madison. Walker made the statement during a phone conversation with a person whom he believed to be billionaire...

Letter: Balance budget by closing corporate loopholes
As we read and listen to the spin of those attempting to defend and rationalize Gov. Walker's actions with respect to the state's public unionized workers, what fails to be mentioned is that AFSCME Councils throughout the state have clearly articulated their willingness to make concessions...

Letter: Benefits are clear; support unions, teachers
I am a non-unionized worker with a very good salary and benefits package, and I am worried about the future of my kids and grandkids. Of course, it would benefit me financially to join the conservative ranks who expect "no new taxes" for themselves while at the same time demanding...

Letter: Do the math: Teachers offer great value
Teachers' hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or10 months a year. It's time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do -- babysit! We can get that for less than minimum wage. That's right. Let's give them $3 an hour and only the hours they...
