Re: Spirit River Dam

"Went past the dam today and there were some guys that appeared to be working on the problem area. Not sure what they were doing but perhaps it is a start."


Old Scout , have you, or anyone, seen any work related activity going on at the dam since your last post? :?:

Re: Spirit River Dam

I drove by the dam last Tuesday and noticed a bass boat with two guys in the it right below the dam.
:shock:

I didn`t know boats were allowed to go right up to the bottom of the dam? :?

Re: Spirit River Dam

I think the powers in charge have just been dragging their feet on the dam issue too long.

It`s been going on for three years now. :roll:

Consistent low water levels equals lower property values. :shock: BUT, property taxes keep going up! :(

Re: Harley layoffs

It`s all part of the "Divide and Conquer" strategy. Get rid of Unions is the first step in getting rid of the middle-class. More workers , working for less money, and no benefits. Once the middle-class is gone, we will then be a two society state, and country. With only the rich and the po...

Re: What ever happened to Fulsher School?

I haven`t seen the old school house for a few years.
Has there been any change?
Is it still an eyesore and blight on the community?

Tomahawk needs to get the tourists back on to Wisconsin Ave. :wink: It needs the visitors from the south to want to get off Hwy 51 at the 1st Tomahawk exit like they did in the 1960`s and 1970`s. :) Then take hwy S to hwy 86 into town.
