Re: immagrants

After reading all this only one thing comes to mind "ILLEGAL". What is so hard to understand about that word. They are breaking the law, and as we are a nation of laws why do we have to make exceptions for certain people. We are supposed to be all equal under the law. What is the differenc...

Re: The Pack & Da Bears

The way the Packers and the Bears played, if you combined the two teams they might be good for a whole game. The Bears played good in the first half and the Packers play a good second half. Shame that neither one can put a full game together. :D :D

Re: Tragedy

After hearing what our local radio station and the area TV stations are saying about this I wonder is they are talking about an entirely different incident. I have talked to the family and others that know what happened I can't believe how screwed up the media has the story. I don't know who they ha...

Re: Northern townships stand against unfair library taxation

I am very pleased to see that the Law Suit for the seperation of the librarys has gone ahead. I just hope that the Judge sees how much of a screwing the northern half of the county is getting on this deal. :mad:

Tragedy

Yesterday there was a tragic event in Tomahawk that those of us that know the family can never forget.

My heart goes out to the family, they are in my thoughts and prays.

Re: Northern townships stand against unfair library taxation

I see that the Tomahawk Library dist. is considering taking the seperation from the merrill dist. to court. I hope that they push this all the way and get this mess settled. The southern half of the county has been milking us long enough. :mad:

Re: Tomahawk Desert?

Jeff,
Actually this was one of the driest summers in many years. Everything was drying up, including my lawn which was brown most of the summer. The Willow and the Spirit are also way down. It is a good thing we are getting some rain now or the fire danger would be almost as bad as CA.

Re: Northern townships stand against unfair library taxation

Brian,

Now I like that idea, Then the Tomahawk Library will save a lot of money on books and will have more to spend on staff so they can stay open more hours. Great plan !!!!

Re: Northern townships stand against unfair library taxation

I see that the southern half of the county is still playing it's game of we have your money and we are going to keep it just because they can out vote us. I think it is time for the Tomahawk area to take it to federal court and get it straightened out once and for all. In the mean time I suggest kee...

I may be mistaken, but I thought the first Mary's Diner was in the area where the Auto Stop is now, on the NE corner of the stop lights. I remember going there when I was in High School in the 60's. :)

Re: Greed at the fall ride !

Just FYI, Local nonprofit groups do not have to pay to set up at Sara park !! After the expenses of purchasing their product and supplies the rest is profit. I still think they are being greedy. :roll:

Greed at the fall ride !

I was at Sara park today and I can't believe the way that some of the local organizations rape the visitors that come for the event. I took a walk around and was going to buy a soda to drink while I checked out the displays. I couldn't believe that one of the local groups was charging $2.00 for a ca...

Jeff, I ran across that quote some time back and saved it because it seemed to hit the nail on the head as far as life was concerned. I can't recall where I found it and there was no name on it. :)
