In response to “Working like a dog (or cat)”

Posted in Harmony Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

Pardon me…but I was overlooked by your writer of, “WORKING LIKE A DOG (OR CAT,)” on Monday, August 25’s news article. Let me introduce myself. I am “Gus,” a 16 pound, grey and white tabby cat, adopted by Gundersen Harmony Care Center in 2012. I am roughly 4-5 years old. I work in elder care as a “therapy cat,” providing friendship and companionship to the residents and staff that reside and work in the care center. Some of my work duties include: being a feline ambassador of the Care Center, be available to take “power naps” 24-7, while snuggling down in a variety of beds with the residents, remain a sentinel to all entrances, ensuring that we are a, “field-mice free” environment, keep a watchful eye over the bird aviary, provide comfort and care to those in need or distress, and assist the nurses on their night rounds. I work earnestly and diligently to gain new friends with my winsome ways. The perks of my job include: being the center of attention most days, feeling adoration by my residents and peers, and generously provided with a bottomless supply of treats. Like the majority of the population, I too prefer my treats to my meals. I am lucky to be live at Gundersen Harmony Care Center.

Posted in Harmony Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, I’m puzzled by Rep. Greg David’s scorching condemnation of The Affordable Care Act, aka “ObamaCare.” He keeps referring to some chimerical, long suffering 16,000. His opposition flies in the face of the success of the ACA, in .....

ObamaCare...

Posted in Harmony Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, After reading Rep. Greg Davids’ vitriolic attack against ObamaCare, I can only conclude he’s for full repeal. This puts him at odds with mainstream Republicans who have abandoned this approach recently, conceding ObamaCare is t .....

To the Editor, Any attempt to refute Stan Gudmundson’s hate filled rant against our president, government, and country would not only be a waste of time but require too many words allowed by the Journal. Let’s be clear: ObamaCare passed the Hou .....
