FAKE NEWS --- I was quoted on the front page of the Times Villager yesterday. Only snippets of my e-mail to the City of Kaukauna were included, implying that I only wished for the bars to open. Here's my full message: Tony Penterman – I’m wondering if we can count on you to follow the lead of the Hartford mayor and get our city open….. How many deaths in Kaukauna? Outagamie County numbers are low. Given my profession, I have firsthand knowledge that the nursing homes are diligently screening upon entry and the ER’s are empty. (The initial purpose of the order was to slow things down for our medical community – not to eradicate it. I say, along with many others, mission accomplished.) Our residents, however, aren’t faring as well. Our city needs you now.
This is my son. I would like to give a Big thank you Kaukauna High School and Eagle Graphics for recognizing Kaukauna Students that are SERVING Our Country.
I love how Times-Villager keeps me informed of our local sports.
Thank you for a great article. Dr. Van continues to bless our community.

In surveys, many say the USA would benefit from having more than just 2 big political parties. WI has 3 established alternative parties: the liberal Greens, the economically conservative Libertarians and the socially conservative Constitution Party. Every 4 years these parties run candidates for the relatively powerless jobs of WI Secretary of State and State Treasurer. This allows sympathizers to vote 3rd party without forfeiting a chance to vote for big-party candidates for important jobs. Generally, third party totals have been growing. Amazingly, this year only 1 person has chosen this prudent strategy. The Constitution Party;s Andrew Zuelke is running for State Treasurer. I sympathize with all 3rd parties, which are suspicious of U.S. involvement in foreign civil wars. I admire 3rd party activists, who work hard to maintain their parties. I mourn that--while there should be 5 more prudent-strategy 3rd party candidates on the Nov. 6 ballot--there won't be.
