Re: What happened to the Packer Defense

The Packers defense is no defense. There's no presence of a defensive line sans Matthews. They can't stop the run or pass so nothing's changed since last year. I'm beginning to question Capers and his vaunted schemes. The score doesn't indicate how lopsided the game was. Offensively there was no spa...

Re: Tomahawk Fall Ride - No Harley Demos, etc?

Sorry to hear the Fall Ride's future may be jeopardized by HD's potential move out of the hometown. You gotta think positive though, it's not about the Harley display that the bikes come to the Northwoods, it's about the Northwoods just like Sturgis is about a gathering and good times (minus a few n...

Re: Northwoods Miscellanea

I've got to get you folks to come hunt my neighborhood .................... in the city. I see at least a dozen mulies a day just wandering the cul de sac in two separate herds. A beautiful 5x5 buck is pushing one bunch of doe's and they aren't in any hurry to move on. Feast in one state and famine ...

Coyotes

Here I am in Colorado in the midst of a blizzard and thought I would look outside to see how much snow had accumulated. I saw this large well fed coyote eyeing two neighbor mini schnauzer's. I stepped out and yelled at which point the coyote just looked at me and sauntered off. Imagine my surprise w...

Re: Roundabouts

I certainly understand your concern with roundabouts. They can be a little confusing initially but they do seem to work. I spent three years driving one in Europe that was three lanes deep and hand seven(7) streets attached to it for entering or leaving it. First time I used it I was somewhat baffle...

Re: Wolves kill bear hounds

Kerry, what wolves are doing around Tomahawk mountain lions do here, sometimes when the dog is walking with its owner, other times on home decks and most certainly more often. If your pet disappears you can almost bet the ranch it fell prey to a lion. Bottom line is we all need to recognize there's ...

Re: Limbaugh fractures Marathon County GOP

Good post and well put Floyd. I started listening to Limbaugh in the '90's while I was in the Bay area. He was different, new, and I somewhat aligned to his comments but after awhile it was the same old stuff and I tuned him out.
