Mariya Bubela's insight:

Mueller, W. "All-Weather Door County." Saturday Evening Post 261.7 (1989): 82. MasterFILE Premier. Web. 6 July 2014.

 

Mueller talks about the distinct shape of the Door County creates many harbors and bays along it shore. The little strip of whiter between Washington Island and the peninsula is called “Death’s Door.” The author emphasizes on the amount of cherry and apple orchards that exist in Door County that are a bit of a change from the rest of the dairy land Wisconsin is.

Mueller notices that both coastlines are drastically different reflecting effects of water. The Lake Michigan side is full of cliffs that break weaves and “long beaches of dunes reaching to 90 feet.”. The opposite side of the peninsula is full of woods and cliffs of limestone.

Mariya Bubela's insight:
Kaufman, John. "Thanks For The Smog." Milwaukee Magazine 37.8 (2012): 21. MasterFILE Premier. Web. 13 June 2014.

 

Kaufman observes, that Door County has the dirtiest air in the whole state. It is caused by the the summer winds that brings “smog-laced cocktail of fossil-fuel exhaust and industrial chemicals” from Milwaukee, Chicago and Gary Ind. Environmental Protection Agency states that most of WI counties are in line with the federal ozone standards of 75 parts per billion. According to Dona Wininsky, director of public policy and communications at the WI chapter of the American Lung Association, it is simply not enough for public health protection. Door County’s average level is at 74 parts per billion. Today scientists claim that the federal level need to be lowered to 60-70 parts per billion. If that happens,  WI and Door County, in particular, will not pass the federal level.
