Re: Welcome out-of-state visitors, but...

Which brings up the point of why are the da** fools following so da** close in the first place. I am often temped to hit the brakes just to see how good some of these idiots reflexes are. The whole problem is that most drivers have no concept of the term "Common sense" and how it applies t...

Re: Driving

I have another one to add to the list of stupid things people do when they are driving. The past two weeks the county has been working on resurfacing Co. E and Co. O. It's bad enough to have to drive on gravel with the dust but there are people that seem to think that there is no reason to slow down...

Re: Kids on Main Street

I guess I never got into hanging out on the street corners. But then in the early sixties, we had the upstairs at the Bowling Alley, The Hole (what memories), the old A&W when it was a Root Beer stand and even the old, Mary's Diner. I guess I can see why the kids are hanging out there, even if i...

Re: Tomahawk National Guard

Yesterday our local National Guard unit left for Fort McCoy. They will be there for a short time and then will probably be sent to the war zone. This will be a tough time for the families left behind to wait and wonder about the fate of their loved ones. The American Legion is in the process of sett...

Re: Has Bush put his presidency on the line?

To get back to the original reason for this thread. A friend of mine brought up an interesting point about why Germany and France don't want us to go into Iraq. There have been rumors for a long time about other countries selling equipment and technology to Iraq. What don't the french and germans wa...

This includes the units in Tomahawk, Rhinelander, Medford, Ashland, Hayward, and Superior. Please keep these soldiers in your thoughts and prays as they leave their families to do their mi...

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.

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!

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.
