Re: Wheel Tax

Everything in my post is true, but you can add whatever else you would like. Your absolutely correct about the way they drive as if the laws don't apply to them. Another reason they shouldn't be on the roads. As I have said before, they were designed for off road travel and that is where they should...

Re: Harley layoffs

I would also bet that you don't remember when a normal work week was 60 + hours with no insurance, no vacation and no other benefits. You could be fired for any little reason or no reason at all if the boss didn't happen to like you. That is what you had before the unions. Now we have corporate gree...

Re: Motorcycle fatality / Fall Ride 2016

Ken, you sure hit the nail right on the head. When I had my bike, the two things I never did was drink when riding and ride without my helmet. I know people use a lot of lame excuses for not wearing one but it is just common sense. You end up head first on the pavement it is all over and so is your ...

Harley layoffs

After talking to some of the people that work at Harley-Davidson it makes me wonder where the greed and animosity toward the workers will end. They use the excuse that sales are down but they are still shipping very close to the same number of parts. The management is doing it's best to browbeat the...

Re: Wheel Tax

The registration fees go for trail development and not highways. Hey, does that mean I can drive my Jeep on their trails? :) I am glad I am not the only one who uses my ATV for what it was intended. No License, no insurance, no turn signals, no seat belts, no passenger protection, yes they are real ...

Re: Wheel Tax

A bit of a difference. They are not motor vehicles. Perhaps I could call my Jeep an ATV and then I wouldn't have to buy a license. Makes as much sense.

Wheel Tax

If the county should pass a wheel tax, would that also be applied to ATV's ? They don't pay license fees that cars and trucks pay and after all, they use the roads too and should share in the cost. This would add substantially to the amount that would come in to help pay for road maintenance.

Re: What ever happened to Fulsher School?

As I said in my earlier post, the school is in the town of Bradley and the town board would be the ones that would have to pursue this. They are the ones that set the ordinances for the town. I don't believe the county would get involved unless it was requested by the town of Bradley. Unless they ge...

Re: What ever happened to Fulsher School?

The School is in the town of Bradley and was owned by the school district. A while after it was closed it was put up for sale and is now owned by a private party and is leased to the guy that has turned it into a junk yard. At least that is the information I have heard.

Re: What ever happened to Fulsher School?

When you mention Mr. Ruprecht it brings back some fine memories of my favorite teacher. I had him for for 6th thru 8th grades. This was back in 56 thru 59. Those were some of the best years of school as far as I am concerned.

We need another gas station like we need another hole in the head. What we do need is Ben Franklin and the other businesses. The way I see it is that the almighty dollar is driving the entire deal. It is better to shut down 5 businesses and make a bunch of money than to spend some to maintain the cu...

Re: What ever happened to Fulsher School?

The Fulsher School is in such bad shape that the best thing that could be done would be to tear it down and put it out of it's misery. The roof is pretty much gone and during the day when you drive by you can see sun light shining through into the rooms. From what I hear the rooms are full of junk a...

First of all, I doubt if expelling those few students would make or break any colleges budget as there are always many more that want to attend than are admitted. As I said before, if they don't like the way the school is run, take your money and go elsewhere. Yes they have the right of free speech,...

Stupidity at colleges

Have you been following the stupidity that has been going on at some of the colleges lately? Since when does a small group of students run the school and tell the administration what they must do and how the school must be run. Frankly if they don't like the way things are at that particular school ...

Mary – obviously a very bright woman - never learned to read or write so that's why she never wrote anything down.
