Letter to the Editor: Little libraries are great

The little libraries popping up in every town are great. I’ve been using Norwalk’s on a regular basis.

There’s a good selection of fiction and nonfiction. I especially enjoy the current issues of magazines. I love them, but can’t afford to subscribe to a lot of them. It also gives me a place to donte books and magazines I’ve enjoyed.

Rather than toss those magazines, bring them to donate. A wide variety of books is appreciated also. It’s nice that I can go to it anytime convenient for me. Thank you to all who donate to it. I hope people enjoy the books and magazines I’ve donated. If you haven’t done so already, check it out!

    Letter to the Editor: Town of Wilton shouldn’t allow quarry

    By LARRY ROSS | Wilton

    “Blasting, property damage and more.” These are the words used by the Save Our Knapp Hills Alliance to describe the mining effects of Milestone Materials in Downing, Wis.

He got my vote in 2008, and he has my vote again this year.

    Ed is a member of six Assembly committees: Urban and Local Affairs (chair); Public Safety and Homeland Security (vice chair); Veterans; Agriculture; Corrections; and

    Letter to the Editor: The canary in the mine?

    By ERIC ZINGLER | Kendall

    In years past, some miners would carry a caged canary into their mine. If the canary looked sick or died, it meant dangerous gases and to get out fast! Unless we have a breakthrough that keeps gravel trucks from crossing the Elroy-Sparta Trail and electronic gates from stopping riders, the canary has died, and the Wilton Township Board should pull the quarry plug fast.

    Many reasons have been given to justify not allowing electronic gates or

    Letter to the Editor: Town of Wilton Board should vote no on quarry

    By JOAN RIPP | Wilton

    Why should the Town of Wilton Board vote no Tuesday, Oct. 21? Lets look at the pros and cons for the Town of Wilton. What will they gain if they allow Mathy to build a quarry off of Logan Road? The Town of Wilton could have gravel delivered really fast, kind of like Jimmy John’s sandwiches. It would be freaky fast! There are other gravel pits in the area, though, so they can get gravel pretty fast already.

    Otherwise, I can’t think
