Re: The Hamm's Bear

Back in the late 1960`s and early 1970`s many taverns all around Wisconsin had the famous Hamm`s lighted beer signs . If you have any now they`re probably worth a mint, because they were the best signs out there. :wink: ' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQXL8ul9-qY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M...

Re: Boy Scout decision on membership

Some ideas just go too far! There should BOY SCOUTS AND There should Girl Scouts. If there are things they do in Boy Scouts that some girls would like to try, then I`m sure some of those things could easily be introduced into the Girl Scout curriculum. And , vice-versa. As a former scout leader I fi...

Re: Feeding and baiting ban

Isn`t the reason for the band do to the fact they found deer with Chronic Wasting Disease.

I thought that if they go 2-3 years without finding deer with Chronic Wasting Disease the band would expire?

It`s around $2.27 in Milwaukee.

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

Unfortunately, it`s Reformulated Ethanol Gas.
