Re: School budget crisis

One point of consern is the administration building. With declining enrollments and all the room gained by the new additions on the school perhaps it is time to sell the building, eliminate the costs of maintaining it and recover the value of it. I always felt that the school administrator should be...

Re: Has Bush put his presidency on the line?

If anyone is interested in the history of the 32nd Red Arrow Division here is a link that gives a brief rundown of where they were and what they did.

Re: Favorite Things!

Right now they are only running one production shift at the new plant, but are looking at adding a second shift some time in the spring. That will add quite a few more good paying jobs for the Tomahawk area. They also have recently installed three new injection molding machines with the intent of im...

Re: Favorite Things!

Just for the record, Harley-Davidson starts out at around $40,000.00 / year.

When I started there in 1970, there were about 60 employees, and the latest count is somewhere around 380.

Quite a change !

Re: Favorite Things!

The population of the city of Tomahawk is limited by the amount of land to build on. I doubt that you will ever see any great change for that reason. If you check the figures you will find that the outlying areas have been growing rapidly and now that Harley-Davidson has added its new plant they are...

The weather is the one good thing the Packers have going for them. Any more injuries and they will have to put uniforms on the Cheerleaders and send them into the game. I just hope they are able to pull it off and go on to a couple more games. After the football season there isn't much to watch on t...

Cigerettes are just as much, if not more, of a health threat as any other drug. My first inclination was to make a comment such as "Anyone who believes that has had way too much experience with drugs", but I will be nice and refrain from such comments. Cigerettes may be a health hazard bu...
