Re: Spirit River Dam

Looks like the work on the dam is complete. They are re landscaping the parking area and have resurfaced the temporary road they put in on the south side. Cleaned up the gravel and put in top soil and seeded it. They have put in top soil and seeded the back face of the dam and are putting gravel dow...

Re: The Speech that was not heard...

I have to agree that it was a great speech, but I don't think it was appropriate in this time and place. It reminded me more of a political speech that you would hear someone running for office giving on TV. Apparently she doesn't know what the word "compromise" means. I see a bit of stubb...

Re: Ggun control

There being no comment or discussion I guess it is time to add something else to think about. Don't get me wrong, I care as much about the kids as anyone, but I think people are going about it in an emotional way rather than logical manner. After watching all the marches and protests I got to thinki...

Ggun control

I listen to the discussion on gun control and keep wondering. If all these changes were put into place they would control the access of the law abiding gun owners but how are they going to get the criminal element to go through back ground checks etc. They will still get their guns by stealing them ...

Re: Feeding and baiting ban

I am hearing a lot of people may continue to put out corn and such at least through the rest of the year at least until the snow is off. They feel that the deer are used to coming in for food and it would be hard on them to just cut it off. Also hear that a lot of hunters, especially older ones that...

Re: Spirit River Dam

Now we just have to get in the habit of stopping for the stop signs on the bridge below the dam. I asked the county the reason for them and this is the reply they sent. The stop signs are for logging trucks. They are coming at 90,000 to 120,000 pounds and bouncing on the weak bridge deck. The cars h...

Re: Boy Scout decision on membership

I didn't say that all would be a problem, but it increases the chance and protection of the boys is the prime consideration ! ! ! !

Take that as you may, but it has happened and can happen again and that is my concern.

Everybody has the right to their opinion, right , wrong or indifferent.

Re: Your thoughts on downtown mid-block turns

if you drive to the intersection and do it correctly.


You may want to reconsider that part. The intersections are all posted as "No U Turns". The only place you can do that is at the end of WIS Ave. by the RR station.

Speaking from experience, I have had two close experiences where I was within inches of being hit by a driver making one of the mid-block turns.

Re: Business Opportunity

Given the choice, I would rather stop at a local store and pick up supplies when I need them rather than wait a week to have them delivered.

I and I am sure a lot of other people don't do a lot of on line shopping and would rather go to a store for our needs.

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 ...
