Nursing home referendum leaves other questions for supervisors
St. Croix residents voted nearly 2-1 to continue using tax dollars to support the county-owned nursing home, but County Board members are divided on exactly what that vote means. The tally last week was 27,425 to 14,765 in favor of operating the nursing home using property tax money....

Dear Editor, The Oct. 9 issue of the Star-Observer contains a letter from St. Croix County Supervisor Buzz Marzolf. Some of the information in that letter is incorrect and I'd like to clear up some misunderstandings. I serve on the Finance Committee of the St Croix County Board....

With referendum near, supporters still ask for nursing home vote now
The question before the St. Croix County Board last week wasn't whether the county should stay in the nursing home business but if the board should honor a decision to let the public vote first. After lengthy discussion, supervisors voted to indefinitely postpone action on a resolution...

Our View: County nursing home arguments show bizarre signs
It is sometimes amazing how government operates, but at least the County Board made the proper temporary decision regarding a county nursing home vote at a recent July meeting. The issue is not settled, however. Some County Board members wanted to vote on the future of the New Richmond...
