Re: Are we at war with Islam

How many more need to be hideously murdered before those fools in Washington wake up and do something before the next attack happens here. I can't believe that idiot that came up with "we need to help them find jobs". That is the last thing they are looking for, they already have jobs, kil...

Re: Wolf rules

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will publish a rule Friday designating wolves in Michigan and Wisconsin as "endangered." I wonder how many have just disappeared in the last couple of months. Wait until next hunting season when even more of them will disappear. When these fools think th...

Re: Are we at war with Islam

I don't think whether he had slaves or not was the point of the article.

After seeing what has been happening in France, I get the impression that like it or not Islam is at war with the rest of the world. Time for the rest of the world to wake up and smell the coffee.

Are we at war with Islam

after reading this I found it rather interesting that things have not changed much in the past 200 years. Is the U.S suffering the "Death by a Thousand Cuts"?? Thought this appropriate, as the recent Canadian and NYC incidents reveal - Most Americans are unaware that over 200 years ago the...

Re: Race problems

when you factor in percentages of the population, they kill FAR more African Americans (by percent of the total population). Perhaps that is because by percent of the total population there are more blacks that commit crime than whites. I don't have the actual figures but it is well documented. Wha...

Race problems

The biggest problem with race relations in America is not people getting along, but the major news media. I am talking about the TV news networks and large news papers. Have you ever seen a news report that starts with "a white cop shots an unarmed white teenager" ? No you don't, but if it...

Re: Quit trashing President Obama's accomplishments.

Wolf rules

I see that stupidity and emotion have take the place of science and logic in the battle over protecting wolves again. The sad part is that of the ones making all the fuss most don't even live in the state or area where the wolves are. What they are doing is in a way declaring war on the wolves, beca...

Re: Tomahawk Chamber of Commerce

I think the worst thing that happened to Tomahawk was the 1983 bypass. Before then, and the way I remember Tomahawk, all traffic went right through downtown. People stopped to eat lunch, take a break to stretch their legs, gas up the car, now, if they are heading north, they just skip it completely...

Hey Old Scout I am a volunteer. Thank you ! ! ! :D As for a sign, we are working on getting a bigger sign out in front of the museum hoping that will draw some attention. I would love to see a large free standing sign at the corner of 4th and Washington. The problem is getting the city to approve it.

Apparently you have no idea how much work is involved and the hours it takes to change an exhibit. If we had twice as many volunteers it would still be a major challenge. Every spring we change the exhibits and it takes several days of work to take the old ones down and store the material then deter...

Does anyone remember when the Mitchell School out on Hwy. 86 closed. The information I have is that it was in either 1957 or 1958 but I am not sure if that is correct. I also received information that it was in the 70's so I am hoping someone that went to the school or lived in the area can help wit...

Re: Tomahawk Chamber of Commerce

No wonder their hours have been cut as very few people even know it is there. Hardly worth the effort to exist now. In regards to the hours being cut, the prime reason is the lack of volunteers to act as greeters at the museum. With two museum buildings if we are open from 11:00 to 3:00 we need fou...

The Tomahawk Leader has an archive of all the old newspapers from back to day 1. They will let you come into the office and search them for the information you are looking for.

Re: School days

Actually you are missing my point. The original point of this post was that I feel that the 10 minutes a day to make up 5 days is a joke. 10 minutes isn't going to make a bit of difference whether they are there for 7 periods or if it was 5 periods. Taking away 5 days in exchange for 10 minutes make...

7 class periods, 10 minutes per day amounts to 1.43 minutes per class period. :?
