Obama Care TO THE EDITOR I've worked in a factory for 32 years. They provided me with a pension and health insurance. The health care premiums are deducted from my pension. The first year after retirement premiums were less than $50 a month. Gradually they went up but the last three years they went up $1,700.
Wisconsin wolf count analysis TO THE EDITOR For the eighth year, I reviewed in detail the tracking data from this year's wolf count. The wolf count is conducted each year from December through mid-April, when the wolf population is at its lowest point. The count consists of data from tracking collars and on-the-ground counts by volunteers and DNR personnel. Public reports are also used.

The plot thickens TO THE EDITOR Week after week I read with dismay the saga of Bay City and the questionable administrative actions taken by the Village Board. It sure is looking more like a Trump administration—in other words a dictatorship amid lies and strong arm tactics, not to mention the lack of diplomacy.
TOWN OF MAIDEN ROCK -- A 74-year-old Plum City man was taken by helicopter to the hospital after he overturned his ATV and struck his head.

Good old days? TO THE EDITOR I've heard the "good old days" statement a lot in the last six months. I'm not sure what world these sayers grew up in. I think people tend to remember the good parts when they were younger.
Different places for Bay City trail TO THE EDITOR In regards to the walking trail in Bay City: There are different places that they can put that walking trail. It does not have to be in the middle of someone's property. Spring Valley has a walking trail and it does not cut into the middle of anyone's property. A lot of families enjoy the trail all times of the year. The Village keeps it cleared from snow and ice. Their plan is to have it go from Spring Valley to Elmwood.
Real media bias TO THE EDITOR It is reassuring to know that Ellsworth has someone who monitors every word and picture published by the Pierce County Herald. It is even more reassuring to know that after years of monitoring the paper, the score appears to be "Photographs 1, Black Helicopters 0."
