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…
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…
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.
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…
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.
The federal government is outsourcing the delivery of Medicare to for-profit organizations. I recently saw a message that said that 350,000 seniors had been switched to privatized Medicare. While government-run Medicare has over head of just 2%, this privatized version called Medicare Advan…
The League of Women Voters St. Croix Valley wants to thank all the candidates who accepted the invitation to participate in our virtual Meet & Greet. We are pleased to present the public with information about men and women who are candidates for the Boards of Supervisors in Burnett, Pol…
Heading to the polls April 5, 2022? It’s local election time. We get to vote for our school board members, as well as our city council, town, and county board representatives. Our local elected officials do the hard work and make the decisions that affect our everyday lives. Who we elect to …
The Wisconsin Spring Election will be held on Tuesday, April 5. All races will be for local positions. You may be voting for county, municipal, or school board positions as well as a possible judicial position, depending upon where you live.
On Oct. 28 of last year, more than 200 people testified against the maps the Legislature was proposing. Only legislators favored the maps their party leaders wanted to pass. They said the maps had been drawn to protect incumbents–as if holding office should be a lifelong, unchallenged position.
Most of us in Wisconsin understand the deep desire for freedom, independence, and democracy on display by the people of Ukraine as they bravely battle against the horrific and deadly invasion by Russia’s military forces. It is also incomprehensible to us to hear that this invasion and the ac…
The Baldwin Bulletin accepts election letters endorsing or advocating for or against a ballot measure, political party or candidate as a paid advertising announcement.
To the clergy, being the predominant speakers of the Word, why don’t you, instead of huddling around little coffee tables talking, get off your dead-ends and onto your dying feet and SHOUT? Tell the public about the Antichrist happenings that are going on in Washington. So, a bunch of politi…
The Tuesday Community Supper is served the first Tuesday of the month at Gethsemane Lutheran Church, 1351 Florence Street in Baldwin. This is a free meal open to anyone in the community. Area churches, businesses and organizations take turns preparing and serving good nutritious food.
What is the cause of the traitorous actions of those who have been treated so well by this country? It has not been the less fortunate or members of minority groups who have been selling this country out, but rather those who have had all the benefits that the wealthiest country on earth had…
I served with eight other Wisconsinites on the People’s Map Commission. Governor Evers asked the commission to create district maps that would be without partisan bias, while holding true to traditional redistricting criteria.
