Re: Pow Wow Days

If you're looking for top notch marching performances, perhaps somebody should start a dedicated marching program to develop the talent and material necessary. Just because a kid plays an instrument does not mean they will can deliver grade A performances regardless of venue. For a group that meets ...

Re: Gas Prices Revisited

Gas price dropped to $3.42 a gallon today in Uptown Minneapolis. (woot woot) I stopped driving myself to work back in January, company carpool lasted until about a month ago.

35W Bridge Collapse in Minneapolis

What an insane thought that on an average day, I probably would have been on that highway, en route to Roseville.

Counting my lucky stars and sending my thoughts out to the rest....

Re: Now it's my turn ... A sister's perspective

I'm all for defending your friend, but slandering everyone else isn't exactly the best method of defense. Unless you're a politician.

Re: Now it's my turn ... A sister's perspective

I certainly understand the anger and frustration that comes when somebody you are close to commits a crime. I have been in that position. The rumors and talk do take a toll, but there is no reason to personally attack anybody for stating their opinion. You might consider the fact that you DO post yo...

Re: Rock star dreams

To throw some support out to more local bands, check out Tomahawk's own Rojo Diablo , Tomahawk native Marcus Ridley's Last Night's Hero , and Tomahawk native Kirk Hrabik's Niobium . I'm sure there are more local acts than that, but ive been out of the area for too long to keep track. If anyone has m...

Re: Proposed work place smoking ban in Rhinelander

sorry, i apologize for my "big city" opinion. but i stand by it.

I think that businesses that allow smoking make it clear which patrons they wish to serve.

nobody forces anybody to breathe second hand smoke. is it really that hard to just not eat/drink/work/whatever in a place that allows smoking?

Re: Proposed work place smoking ban in Rhinelander

(No, I don't smoke.)

If you dont like eating in a smoking establishment, go somewhere else. If you dont like working in a smoking establishment, get a different job. Why should people cater to nonsmokers?

Yeah, its pretty much the same thing the republicans did when Howard Dean screamed at that rally.

BUT, this incident did result in the number 1 funniest episode of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

I, personally, am a fan of Dr. Ben Marble, the guy that walked up and told Cheney to go f**k himself. its funny how cheney can tell sntr. leahy and its okay, but when someone says it to him they end up being detained by fbi and secret service agents...even if only for a half hour.
