Re: Tony Werner

Hi Kerry. Thank You. Yes, that would be the old Tomahawk/ Forest Protection Airport. My dad would drive by just to see what might be parked on the ramp.

I would like to thank everyone again for responding to my initial request for information regarding Tony Werner.

Re: Tony Werner

Hi Jim, So interesting about Clay. I wasn't aware of the Caterpillar club until you mentioned it. I've been inside a B-17 and I don't even want to think about what it's like to try to get out of the left seat with full war time flying gear. Was he a business partner with Tony?

As a boy I remember my Dad stopping by the old conservation dept. field to see what was parked there on any given day. My dad had a stearman for a time and even had some AT-6 t...

Re: Whyare House apprasals going up 11%and house valves dropping

Hello.. My Dad bought land on Nokomis in 48. I've seen changes through the years and well, like other aspects of life, not always better. The property taxes are very high in Wisconsin relative to other states. I believe this is because most county revenue is raised via property tax via the land owne...
