LETTERS to the Editor

Statement from Tuesday Rally

This rally tonight was to show Jon how much he means to this community.

He is known far and wide for being a very compassionate, caring, and fun nurse!

We wanted to show him support in his decision to not take the vaccine.

No one should have to have an experimental substance forced in them.

Doesn’t natural immunity mean anything? I understand private businesses can do what they want. But if these “heroes” could work for the last year and a half without the vaccine they should be able to continue to do so.

You don't fire good, seasoned professionals if we are suppos edly in a pandemic!

We fully trust God has bigger and better plans for Jon!

Stanley Community Fund accepting grant applications

The Stanley Community Fund, was endowed through the Community Foundation of Chippewa County in October 2018, as a result of over 50 donors and due to the Leadership of the Stanley Lions Club.
