We are Rita and Tom Hawley, a retired couple in Baldwin. Although retired, we try to remain active in the community and so are thankful for the opportunity given to us by Western Wisconsin Health to help with the community garden. But it can be a big job so we were grateful to have word that…
As a retired 38-year law enforcement officer, including nearly 30 years with the Saint Croix County Sheriff’s Office, it was more than heartwarming to witness the unprecedented outpouring of support for police last week in the aftermath of the murder of Deputy Katie Leising. People lined str…
I want to thank and let the Baldwin Care Center and St. Croix Hospice know how appreciative we are for the wonderful care they gave my sister as Nancy passed away on April 27. Although heart-wrenching, the few months before her passing was made much easier with the kindness, attentiveness, a…
Last week’s writer said he has no idea who or what ‘Antifa’ is. Antifa is a contraction of the phrase “anti-fascist”. It refers to a decentralized network of far-left militants that oppose what they believe are fascist, racist, or otherwise right-wing extremists. Baloney.
Since the summer of 2020 there has been a very vocal insistence the something has to be done about antifa whatever antifa is or was. (I believe antifa is a contraction of anti-fascist and tell me who is really in favor of fascism?) Then there is the wailing and gnashing of teeth over the “de…
Dear People of the Great State of Wisconsin,
I just read Bill Rubin’s EDC Blog regarding change… as in, coins... and it piqued my interest. I’ve been a coin collector since 1966.
Thank you, Pastor Backstrom, for your message on ‘The Gift of Forgiveness’! It is so very much needed in this world we live in!
I have had the opportunity to get to know some of my teachers.
We all know how a primary works, right? The Republican candidates face off against other Republicans and the Democrat candidates face off against the other Democrats running for the same spot. Then the Republican with the most votes faces off against the Democrat with the most votes, as we s…
We would like to say a big THANK YOU to all the members of the Baldwin and Hammond Fire Departments who arrived fast and did a great job of putting out the fire that had started at the Wolf Honey Farm store.
How are you getting ready for the Tuesday, February 21, primary election? Oh, you had no clue there may be a primary election. These primary elections are often called “sleepers.” Do not “sleep” your future away!
I read an article in the Dec. 27, 2022, issue of the Pioneer Press regarding the increase of suicide rate among teenagers.
Just received my copy of the Baldwin Bulletin for Dec. 21 and wanted to say thank you for the first thing I saw “The Birth of Jesus: The Message!!!! It is so wonderful to see that you honored my Lord and Savior with this message of the front page.!!! Again, Thank YOU!!!
The holiday season is one of the most important times of year for families. People travel across Wisconsin to see their loved ones, but safety is sometimes lost in the hustle to holiday destinations.
Saturday afternoon I had the delightful experience of attending this amazing production. Our community can be so proud of the outstanding talent that was demonstrated by these young people. Every portion of “Joseph” was superb including the vocal performances, the acting, the impeccable timi…
Imagine when the Packers scored a touchdown, they only got 4 points instead of 6. That’s how your votes for the legislators in Wisconsin are tallied.
After reading Franklin Graham’s article, “We Can Still Turn Back” in the October 2022 issue of Decision Magazine, I felt the need to share some of his thoughts as well as my own. Graham begins by reminding us all why we need to go to the polls on November 8 and vote; I concur; the issues we…
My earliest memory of Reid Berger goes back to the very day he came to Baldwin to work at the Baldwin Clinic. I was one of Reid’s first patients.
Thank you for a great story last week on the outstanding achievements of B-W athlete Davis Paulsen. It was truly inspirational to read how this young man excels in two sports in the same season. Wow! Hopefully, you will do additional feature stories like this about other B-W students who exc…
With the SCOTUS decision on overturning Roe, we are going back in time. Given the news, the 1849 Wisconsin law that bans abortions and threatens doctors with prison sentences can now be enforced.
I appreciate so much the article, “Mass Shootings symptom of a Deeper Problem”, written by Gene Johnson published in the July 20 Baldwin Bulletin. He believes, and I agree, that a lack of respect for law and order, and particularly for God’s rules as given in the Bible have brought us to the…
Thank you to everyone who helped to make the benefit for Eric Wangen such a wonderful success! The positive support from our community since Eric’s stroke in February has been overwhelming and has eased the stress and burdens of a very challenging time. Heartfelt thanks to each person who ha…
I have been watching the political news and the January 6th hearings lately. The world seems to be turned upside down from the way it should be. Our senators and congressmen are voting to overturn a free and fair election and conspiring with Donald Trump and white nationalists thugs to block…
This letter is intended for lifelong Republicans who dislike what the party has become under Donald Trump. People who still support conservation, local control, small government, fiscal responsibility, and using bipartisanship and compromise to help government identify and solve problems.
Veterans in St. Croix County are furious with Senator Ron Johnson for voting last week against a bipartisan bill that would have expanded medical coverage and benefits for millions of soldiers who are suffering from disabling illnesses, such as cancer and emphysema, after being exposed to to…
Our Constitution begins with “We the People.,” not “I the person.” It says, “promote the general welfare,” not the individual welfare. Sadly, far right voters seem unwilling to address their responsibilities, and rant instead about their rights - guns, vaccines, free speech, small government…
So let me get this straight! The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the abortion rights of every woman in the United States, although three justices swore in their confirmation hearings that Roe vs Wade was “settled law”?
I would like it to be known that recently the St. Croix Valley Beekeepers Club sponsored a bee and butterfly Habitat planting at the corner of US Highway 63 and County Highway N, or the Peace Lutheran Church property.
After the first several hearings from the January 6 Select Committee I am even more fearful for our democracy. Hearing former Trump conservative allies describe the disgraceful actions to block the peaceful transfer of power and overturn the results of a free and fair election was chilling. …
The recent letter re: gun control legislation etc., always remind me of how little true reporting on the subject is available, on purpose, because our government and the MSM has an agenda….to make us all believe that ‘guns are evil’ and must be banned. It’s a total lie, period.
I believe our elections this fall will be a vote on freedom and democracy. These are two things that hold our country together and make us proud to be Americans.
Shame on all Republican politicians who stall or refuse to enact significant gun control regulations in our besieged country.
The seven are going to give and the child is going to have snack. The seven are going to give and it is a story of not ending…Because the little one is a crybaby who always come out with this song…words from a Lullaby for children in Spanish language.
We would like to thank all those who brought food, sent cards, gave memorials, and provided other acts of kindness during our time of sorrow for the loss of our son and brother, Alan. God Bless.
How many innocent children must be sacrificed on the altar of the National Rifle Association (NRS) before our Republican politicians stop bowing down at their feet in exchange for hefty campaign donations?
Last year I attended a Baldwin Village Board meeting because I caught wind that they were discussing something I had a strong opinion about. My opinion happened to be a strong negative opinion.
Americans are sickened by the war that Russia is waging against Ukraine. A war where homes, schools and hospitals are targeted for bombing. Where Russian soldiers are executing husbands in front of their families and raping mothers in front of their children.
I wanted to “Thank” the Bulletin for allowing me to do movie reviews for the past three years. It has been something on my bucket list for a long time and it has been a dream come true. Thank you so much! After watching a lot of films over these last years, I have had a better appreciatio…
I always vote, I believe it’s my civic duty, but this spring election taught me a new civics lesson. I intended to vote absentee I knew everything had to be done right or my ballot would be thrown out. But as I was filling it out, I felt increasingly ill.
At 4:55 p.m., on Good Friday, the first day of Passover, the Wisconsin Supreme Court finally released their opinion on which legislative district maps will be in effect for the next decade. They chose the rigged maps that were drawn by the legislature—the same maps that they previously rejec…
One of the nagging problems in the health care world is that people who are studying to be doctors must choose between being a primary care doctor, otherwise known as a family doctor, or specializing so they earn more money. Many people choose to specialize which means that we have a shortag…
Coming up is one of two of the greatest events that have taken place on earth since God created the Earth. This event is Easter; the first is Christmas.
This is response to Cheryl Maplethorpe’s Letter to the Editor that was published in the April 6th edition of the Baldwin Bulletin.
I thought the article, “Former Baldwin youth pastor arraigned....” by Jason Schulte was poorly written and likely badly edited - small wonder the Christian Reformed Church penned its response, even with the caveat that they had no quibble with the article’s factual accuracy.
