Hello from the Circulation Director at the Rhinelander Daily News! My fiancee and I had a unique experience this last weekend (July 9) when we sorta rescued a syndicated outdoor columnist (who writes for the Leader as well as other newspapers throughout Wis and Mich). We happened to be canoeing on the Willow Flowage and probably only the persons in sight within a 20 mile radius when we spotted reporter/writer Mark Walters having trouble with his boat and car. After the big storm, his car was somewhat submerged at the boat landing and stuck and he was having trouble getting his car out of the water, much less his boat, which motor had died. We spent over an hour digging him out and it's a good thing we were around to help as there was not another soul in sight. He said it was one of those weekends where everything went wrong, including the boat motor dying, his camera breaking and his four wheel drive in his car going out. Needless to say, Mark was extremely grateful for our help as he was stuck 15 miles from the highway and nearest help. Mark plans on writing a column about his experience and he writes for the Leader as well as many other newspapers throughout Wisconsin and Michigan.......P.S. Have lots of itching from mosquito bites? There is a natural plant called jewelweed out there that is better than any product you will find on the shelves in stores to cure that itch!

Spent a week in Tomahawk in June.I looked for my old teacher Mrs. Lavers at the Kindergaten. Some people did a lot of work, It looks great! I guess I was in the class of 41.I had a very nice talk about aircraft with MR Loyd Koth it was men like him that brought us through those war years,and we should remember on this 4th of July.Keep the silver side up Loyd.

My grandfather, Michael Galek, moved to Tomahawk from Poland around 1913. My father, Louis, was born there in 1915. They moved to NYS in the 20's and never went back, although my father always talked fondly of his memories of the area and always wanted to return for a visit. My father is deceased now, but I continue to be interested in researching my father's roots. I was thrilled to find this site and would like to visit the area someday.

I enjoy coming to the web site every Tuesday to catch us on the news in my "old" hometown. I have been gone almost 20 years (in the Air Force), but still recognize many of the names. Maybe when I retire in 6 months, I will be able to physically visit more often. Of course, I still hear all the "breaking" news from my mom, Bettie Ecklund, or sister, Julie Garfield.

I think it is a shame that the only reference to the "Ogema" area of wisconsin using 'webferret'as a search engine, is found on 'eurosearch'... Looking forward to blacksmithing at the "bears Inn" this first weekend in June (for those in Tomahawk), Come on out an' have a looksee.

Hello Tomahawk: If you see Butch and Marlene Bowers tell them John and Peg Pitcher said hello. We met the Bowers over the winter in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. If they are representative of people who live in your community, you should consider yourself blessed. We hope to visit your fine community some day. In the meantime encourage Butch and Marline to get online and get email.
