Re: Spirit River Dam

Phase 2 will involve addressing a boil that was discovered and addressed two years ago next to the fishing platform below the Spirit Dam. They plan to address it after the rainy season next summer. Not sure yet of what all the details will include, but I suspect it will be much less involved than t...

Re: Spirit River Dam

Looking at the article in The Leader, it seems like the work to fix the Dam problem is more complicated then I thought. :oops: Which might be a good thing. The fix looks to be a more permanent fix to the problem. :) I somehow feel this problem could affect other Dams in the Tomahawk area in the futu...

Re: Motorcycle fatality / Fall Ride 2016

Not much chatter anymore about The Fall Ride.

It used to be the topic of a lot of conversations.

Any thoughts on the 2017 Fall Ride?

Re: Boy Scout decision on membership

No need to worry about gay Boy Scouts. The real agenda is to secure a positions for adult gay male Boy Scout leaders. Not that they would ever have any interest in boys . "A kid in a Candy Store" is the quote that comes to mind. ' THAT, has been the problem for decades. NOT, gay scouts, B...

Re: Spirit River Dam

I can see why they figure on having the dam done by Thanksgiving. They bring in a piece of equipment and disappear for the rest of the week. As of today they have a lot of equipment and trailers parked around the lot and on the dam but I haven't seen anyone there doing anything that looks like they...

Re: Gas prices

I wonder if we could lower the gas prices if only 2 grades of gas would be sold? :?:

Just lower octane and the higher octane. :wink:

Do we really need 3 grades of gas? :(

Re: Gas prices

It`s around $2.27 in Milwaukee.

Some are a little higher, some are a little lower.

Unfortunately, it`s Reformulated Ethanol Gas.

I`d pay more for real gas. :wink:

I don`t even want to use that gas in my motorcycle, lawnmower, or any small engine! :shock:

Re: Spirit River Dam

From the amount of equipment and supplies they are hauling in it must be a rather serious repair they are planning. Seems like I read that they plan on putting some kind of plate in on the water side. Perhaps MrBrowns can fill us in as I believe he is the one that wrote about it. ' So , the plate i...

Re: Spirit River Dam

Does anyone know exactly what all is involved in the repairs?

It must be pretty complicated to do any kind of fix with water still coming through!

You`d think they`d have to empty the entire Spirit !

I bet they get the water level at a all time low before the work is completed!
