Re: Deer Trail Lodge or Red Arrow Lodge

My parents bought a house around the bend to the west of Red Arrow in the 70's. I have many memories of Red Arrow. My parents actually bought the pontoon that Duane cruised around the lake with people staying at the resort. The bar was opened up after the resort closed for good. It was sooo wierd lo...

Thank-you local snowmobiler!!!!

I want to give a big "thank-you!!" shout out to the snowmobiler on the new Ski-Doo 50th Anniversary and friend. My parents who are young Sr Citizens, were coming home from the Big Moose when my dad cut a corner too sharp and the fresh new snow sucked him in and down a steep hill. My mom fl...

Re: Town Hall Meeting on Smoking Band

Illinois has a smoking ban. As a non smoker I like it. It has brought a lot of controversy here as well as it sounds like there. Someone went as far as holding a smoking party at his auto body garage and advertised it. No authorites showed up but he proved his point it was his garage on his privatel...

Maybe other lakes too but I can only speak of Alice. He winters in Florida. Tony's grandson Paul runs Sherwood Forest campground on Lak...

Re: Fall Ride

Depending on what kind of water you buy is what you pay. I am in retail, Coke and Pepsi both charge around that price year round. I don't think they were jacking the price up to you, that is normal. It is usually cheaper to buy a water from a store that buys it in huge bulk amounts like Wal-Mart.

4 Year Old Kindergarten

How does this work? Is this the same thing as Pre-K? In our school district, we have a pre-k program for children up to Kindergarten age. I was just wondering if you provide a pre-k also or just a 4 yr old Kindergarten.

I appreciate any info someone can provide.

Re: Brain Teaser

Looks as if you had a few "spring" days already. Too bad for the local businesses for their tourist trade!!! I wish them more snow and maybe the six more weeks of winter the groundhog predicted. (Not to mention, I was supposed to come up next week snowmobiling!?!?!) :(

Deer Hunting Laws/Etiquette???

What are the laws about shooting a deer and it ending up on another persons property? Can you legally go onto another persons property and retrieve it?

Re: Cell phone service - quality/company feedback

I have Verizon and I use my phone up there with no problems at all. And yes, they claim they do not have coverage in the 54487 area, but I have no problems with reception.

Re: Harley Ride

The "ride" only benefits the merchants of our town. The riders don't pay enough to come thru
our town.
Wow! 30,000+ people who spend money at all those local merchants...think of the local sales tax they pay that goes to TOMAHAWK!!!!
