Re: Never say never:

Well said, Old Scout. I do feel for Jacob's family - deeply. As a relative of one of the other young people involved in these crimes I understand to a degree what they are going through. It is excrutiating to be separated from one you love for whatever reason. However, if we use alcohol, peer pressu...

Re: Willow Haven

Can't figure out the joke myself, but would love to know if they are re-opening. It was an awesome place with great steaks and a super salad bar.

Re: PCA mill explosion, fatalities

The number of people this accident has touched is huge. (I explained today to a friend who grew up in St. Paul that "the mill is Tomahawk; Tomahawk is the mill.") I heard about it yesterday not knowing my nephew was the injured man who was treated and released. Today, I learned that one of...

Re: Gas Prices Revisited

My goodness, Deb... where do you live? We're also about five miles from Lake Wissota State Park. We're between Jim Falls and Cadott off of HWY K. :D

Re: Gas Prices Revisited

:x I remember shortly after I was married - 24 years ago - and gas went over $1.00/gallon. I was horrified! Oh, to go back to those days! Now, it is totally out of control. I live near Chippewa Falls, and just told my mom in Tomahawk, that I really don't know the next time we'll be visiting - in lar...

Re: 1930's Tomahawk

Check ebay and search "Tomahawk Wisconsin". The vast majority of items you will find are postcards - many from the era you've mentioned. Good luck!

Re: Bye Bye Brett

So many mixed feelings for so many of us in Wisconsin. Of course we are saddened. No one has ever been, or will ever be, as fun to watch. Here was a grown man, a professional athlete, playing with the joy and enthusiasm of a ten-year-old. I have two children - ages 17 and 11 - who don't know the gam...

Re: The Vote

Maybe I'm an oddball, but all of this just fascinates me. It's also fun to watch my son who turns 18 in June become very interested in the politics of our country. Right now I'm learning towards Obama, but I'm not sure he can win. The Clinton machine is awfully big and powerful. I do think he repres...

Re: Federal Gov't "Gift/Rebate"

I feel exactly the same, Jeff. Sure, we can use the cash - our son starts college in the fall. However, how much more debt can this country take?
