Fish like a girl
As an avid bass angler, I do not often pay terribly close attention to other species of fish - other than how bass relate to them, or they to bass. But, when I heard about the "Learn to Fish Musky" class being held in Boulder Junction in conjunction with Musky Daze, I thought it would be interesting to attend and fun to learn more about musky fishing. I was not disappointed. (subscriber access)

Adoption of a Plum Lake District will disenfranchise the majority of taxpayers
To the Editor:

I was recently told by a Plum Lake Town Board member that the formation of a Plum Lake District would be "the most democratic and fair form of government" to all of the property owners involved. He also advised me to "just let the district happen," and that the majority can always vote it out at the first annual meeting.

'Insane decision'
To the Editor:

This overdue letter was prompted by the insane decision made recently by a panel of judges in Washington D.C. to keep the gray wolf protected in northern Wisconsin. These judges, who have obviously been corrupted by money from the Humane Society of the U.S., PETA, and Friends of Animals, etc., probably wouldn't know the difference between a parakeet and a pair of shoes.
