Letter to the editor: You can’t fix dumb

By MIKE MUEHLENKAMP | Norwalk

Editor’s note: Mike Muehlenkamp of Norwalk, who died Oct. 4, submitted the following letter to the County Line in late September. It is printed here with permission from his widow, Jill Muehlenkamp.

To the people of Norwalk, Butch and Madonna Johnson complain about everything that goes on or any organization that has to make money. They complained about the tractor pull, that it was going to be a drunk fest, cars flying up and down the street, causing accidents. On Sunday morning, Aug. 16, I drove downtown, and there were no people lying on the boulevard or on the lawns, and no smashed cars. It must have been a good night!

At the meeting to issue a second picnic license, Bill Degenhardt said the poll would bring in $40,000; he did not say that they would give the village $40,000. Buch should maybe get his hearing checked, and while he is at it, he and his wife should get their eyes checked. She told me I got paid for helping set up the pull for years and she could prove it. I have not seen any checks or cash. I could use it!

They accused Henry, Jeff and myself for putting a dead animal in front of their house. ANOTHER LIE. Maybe they could run for president and vice president because they would fit right in with all the LIES.

He told some of the people after the last board meeting that they have sued the village THREE TIMES! Is THAT the kind of people you want in our village. I don’t think so.

TRUMP 2020. NO MORE BULLSHIT.
