Re: The End of the World?

Jesse Ventura "who had that quote about religion is a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in numbers."

After reading baby's post it makes me think he might not be completely wrong. :D

Re: Looks like greed to me

That is correct Deb if you are talking about setting up on the street, but the ones that set up in parking lots and on private lots are not affected by this, only those that set up on city property which is mainly SARA park. The ones down town are on private property. I am sure they pay some rent to...

Re: Looks like greed to me

I guess this brings up another question. Why only the venders at SARA park, they are a minority compared to the ones set up on private property all over town. If security and cleanup are the real reasons then all venders that come into town for the event should be charged the same regardless of loca...

Re: Looks like greed to me

I'm thinking you are missing one big point here. The people that put on the Fall Ride do it as a fund raiser for MDA. It is the city and the local business that are getting greedy and want more and more from the event. The event is an opportunity for people to get together, have some fun and support...

Re: Looks like greed to me

Just one correction, The $200.00 charge is for a 200 Sq. ft. space, over that it goes to $500.00. Some of the small venders that do sell quality stuff will undoubtedly be pushed out. That as usual leaves all the profits for the big business. Kind of like when Walmart comes in and all the small local...

Looks like greed to me

Perhaps someone could explain something to me. The Fall Ride brings in over 19 Million dollars into the area, every business and ultimatly all their employees and the city benefit. Yet the city can't afford to pay for police and clean up for something that benefits the community to that extent. All ...

Re: Salvation Army Bell Ringers

I can give you one reason I shop out of town. I don't mind paying a few cent more for an item but I really hate getting ripped off with outrageous prices. A while back I built a storage shed and needed shelf brackets. The type that are L shaped and painted grey. I checked at Ace Hdw. and they wanted...

Re: School Lunch

Perhaps if the parent worried more about the childs behavior and less about what they have for lunch there wouldn't be a problem. When they expect the teachers to raise their kids they have to live with the rules and the way they are enforced. Maybe the child will think twice next time. :roll:

Re: Lincoln County Humane Society

I have to agree with tinman, if cats were licensed there would be more than enough money brought in to support the shelter. After all they take in cats as well as dogs. I always felt it was unfair to dog owners that we are the only ones that need to license our pets. Perhaps it cats had to have a li...

Re: Good "Eats" In Tomahawk?

If you are looking for breakfast the choices you have are Village Square, Mr. Bill's, or the Family Resturant. Both places downtown are closed. Mr. Bill's started serving breakfast this spring and from what I hear is pretty good.

Actually Tinman, I think this is rather entertaining. Everytime I open the message board I get a good laugh. I really doubt that any of this is going to have much influence on the vote, but apparently it makes them feel much better. :D

Re: Da New Street

Only one comment, for a new street it sure has a lot of pot holes (AKA man hole covers) that are far below the level of the pavement. The one in front of the feed store is a tire killer. Other than that it sure is a great improvement. Question, does anyone know if they are going to put a stop or yie...
