Re: School days

7 class periods, 10 minutes per day amounts to 1.43 minutes per class period. :? I am sure a lot will be accomplished in that amount of time. yes the 7 period day will help but that extra 1.43 minute is still a joke when it comes to making up the lost time. As for the last 5 days being wasted with e...

School days

Among the numerous bills signed into law by the governor yesterday was one that removes the 180 day instructional requirement for school districts. The requirement will now be based on instructional hours, which was seen as a positive for rural school districts. Tomahawk District Administrator Sher...

The river is opening up near the bridge but the challenge is to get across the ice to the open water. Maybe by June. :D

Re: Stoxen's Closing

Another down side to only having one pharmacy in town is that in the past where it took 20 min. or so to get a prescription it now takes an hour or you might have to stop back the next day. With everyone having to go to the one place they are swamped. Had a prescription called in by the Doc. this mo...

Re: Pansy deer hunters

I have to agree with Jim on this one. I started hunting in the late 50's and remember when we spent the day driving one piece of woods after another. We actually went looking for deer rather than letting them come to us. Now all you see is guys sitting in a tree stand over a pile of corn. Not a whol...

Re: Living the dream

Heard earlier today the Farmer's Almanac is predicting this winter will be long and one of the coldest on record. From the way things have started, it certainly appears that could be the case.

Re: Lost Dog

Being from Florida, I know of a few hunters who use dogs to hunt and track the wild hogs down here, along with other animals in a pack setting. If the dog doesn't track, is slow or late in returning, many times they leave them, or even shoot them in the woods. It is horrific, and not saying that th...

Lost Dog

I can't believe that the person from TN was given a citation for allowing his dog to roam free. When you are hunting with a dog it is allowed to run, that is how they find birds. He was searching for the dog until he had to leave for home. It is not like he just turned it loose, let it run and decid...

Re: Boy Scout decision on membership

Deb, I think it is great that you were involved for a time in the program as they can always use leaders. In contrast, I have been involved with scouting in one capacity or another for over 50 years and have seen a lot of changes, some good, some not so good. So yes, when it comes to Boy Scouts, I d...

Re: Boy Scout decision on membership

If they are interested in boys they may not be openly gay, but I certainly would not consider them straight. Calling pedophiles straight is just another way of describing a closet gay that has just managed to hide it for a long time and took advantage of the opportunity. Scouting has worked hard for...

Re: Boy Scout decision on membership

Obviously people who know nothing about the program or were not able to handle being a scout.

I wonder how you would feel knowing that your son was sharing a tent on a campout with a boy who was interested in other boys. I have no doubt that a lot of parents will have this concern.
