Shanties Off

Posted March 1, 2008
From the Appleton Post Crescent
Deadline looms to get shanties off the ice
Removal requirement means end of winter in sight
The Post-Crescent
Permanent ice shelters must be removed from Lake Winnebago and other inland waters by Sunday night, according to state Department of Natural Resources rules.

Previously, anglers fishing on waters south of State 64 had until March 5 to remove permanent shelters.

Under the new rules, anglers have until the first Sunday after March 1 to remove the shelters.

Failure to remove a shanty or ice fishing shelter by the deadline could result in a forfeiture of $248.60.

Quite a few permanent shelters remain on Lake Winnebago and getting them of the ice could pose a problem, said Dale Frank, president of the Paynes Point Hook & Spear Fishing Club in Neenah.

"Some shacks are quite a ways out. I don't know how the owners are going to get them off. The snow is so bad and there is slush under the snow," Frank said.

Frank said the lake ice has numerous fractures.

"We'll do our level best to help get the remaining shelters off the ice, but there are places on the lake we just can't go anymore," Frank said.

After the date for removing ice fishing shelters from a frozen lake of river, anglers still can use portable shelters, but must remove them when they are not occupied or actively being used.

If the shelter breaks through the ice, it must be recovered under DNR rules. That process could add to the forfeiture costs.

The DNR said it would attempt to contact owners of shanties left on lakes and rivers after Sunday to get them off the ice. Those who own shanties are required to have their name and address on it.

State hides results of Internet tax
In December, as the state was about
to enact a $1 per pack increase in the cigarette tax, The Associated Press wanted to find out about efforts by the state to collect taxes on Internet cigarette sales, but it was rebuffed by the Department of Revenue.

So it's incredulous to hear state officials say Wisconsinites don't have a right to know how vigorously, or not, laws are being enforced. "Spectacularly lame," indeed.

"Spectacularly lame" was how Bill Lueders, president of the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council, characterized the logic being offered by these state officials. "Just because the Department of Revenue is embarrassed that it's doing so little is not reason to hide that fact from the public."

What will happen if the state passes a no smoking law (except casino's). Will they look the other way for a couple years while people smoke in the bar? Where's the Tavern League? If you pass a law than enforce the law!

To My Buddy "The Blue Revolution"

It's so nice I get comments on some of my posts. One comment left from a young person. I am assumming that they are young is that they did not leave any information on who they are, where they are from or could not even post a logical comment. Only thing I know is they call themselves "The Blue Revolution" Huh, now I had to find out what kind of person this could be.

From World Wide Words
Some slight evidence suggests blue is joining green as an environmental buzzword. The blue revolution is the water equivalent of the green revolution and primarily refers to the need to get water for drinking and crop irrigation to the many millions of people worldwide who do not have it. The phrase has been used for some years, but it came to notice particularly in press reports of the recent Third World Water Forum in Tokyo. The institute hopes the “green revolution” in crop productivity will soon be matched by the “blue revolution” in raising water productivity in agriculture. [Africa News Service, Aug. 2002]

Holy cow, I might have a greenie wienie from another country, How quaint.

From Wikipedia- Color revolutions or Flower revolutions are the names given collectively to a series of related movements that developed in post-communist societies in Central and Eastern Europe, and Central Asia. Some observers have called the events a revolutionary wave.

"Blue Revolution" was a term used by some Kuwaitis [1] to refer to demonstrations
Kuwait in support of women's suffrage beginning in March of 2005; it was named after the color of the signs the protesters used. In May of that year the Kuwaiti government acceded to their demands, granting women the right to vote beginning in the 2007 parliamentary elections. [2] Since there was no call for regime change, this cannot be categorized as a true color revolution.

I am honnored, this young person could be from the middle East, ( Welcome to Wisconsin, can I get you a beer and some chicken booyah) Sorry, you can't be of legal drinking age yet.? Also could be of female persuasion and is in bondage to some right wing zealot. My God miss, are you O K?

From Economist. com - Fish farming, Can farming meet the world's demand for fish? Naw, smells like tuna fish, could it be a fisherman, sorry, maybe fisherwoman?

Did I hit the jack pot, oh my, I think I did. From 2006

Submitted by Bob Fertik on November 5, 2006 - 10:37pm.
When the polls close, we urge Democrats across the country to gather
outside their County Election Office for a candlelight vigil to Count Every
Vote, all wearing the same color: Blue. Imagine a Blue Revolution, every bit
as joyous and historic as the
Orange Revolution in Ukraine, the Cedar
Revolution Lebanon, the
Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia, and the
democratic revolutions of recent years - right here in the United States of America.
Help us organize a vigil in your county - just create a new
Forum Topic coded "Blue Revolution," select "County," post the location of your County Election Office, and spread the word to your friends. More details below...

So I sign up as a independent on the dem website and can't find anything on blue revolution from Wisconsin. The only thing I find is "THERE EATING THEIR OWN" The poor devils are turning to canibalism and taking out poor Ron Kind.

Link - Rep. Ron Kind betrayed the voters and troops of Wisconsin's 3rd Congressional District by voting to continue George Bush's disastrous Iraq War forever. is looking for an "aggressive progressive" Democrat who will challenge Kind in a Democratic primary in 2008.

So I will have to go out on a limb and say that the person called "The Blue Revolution" is a eleven year old advanced green colored environmentalist fisherwoman from Asia, Europe or the kremlin of the west (Madison Wis). Is a left leaning dem. history buff who reads about past revolutions and probably is looking for clean water to take away from some rich republican that doesn't need it. If it is a male/ female (bi sexual), probably has side job in some form of writing, (speech writer, mass media) since they themselves do not know proper verbal skills. Please go back to your day job since you are incompetent! The Blue Revolution" is getting annoying.

If you are mature enough to discuss issues, give me a call. I have no problem with your opionon, but name calling is just beneath you. Call me and we can talk.

I think you also could use some therapy. Here are some places you should seek for help.

Bellin Health 744 South Webster Avenue P.O. Box 23400 Green Bay, WI 54305-3400920 433-3500

Ph: 608-280-2700 • Fax: 608-280-2707

If you are from out of state, please call someone for help. Don't let this Blue Revolution get out of hand. you could hurt yourself.

If you do not get the help you need , the mother ship will be landing on November 4th at the home base landing area. Please bring your tin hat receiver to get proper coordinates.

My First Kagen Visit

I thought I would post this since it seems Dr. K., our Wisconsin's 8th District Congressman might be under a microscope in the future. Got to see our man in Green Bay. This is the long version of my day with our good Doctor.

Date - Thursday Feb. 21, 2008
Place -Titletown Brewery in Green Bay.
Purpose - Brown County Taxpayers Association
Guest Speaker - Steve Kagen
Host Richard Parins - Good guy asks a lot of tough questions. Is passionate about taxpayers money.

Wow everybody, I got to see Dr K , what a guy, ahhhhhhh, I'll leave it at that! My first impression, he looked like another ultra lib, Robert Redford, and I wasn't even drinking! I took some written notes. A friend of mine was right, I need to get a digital recorder. To be accurate with this politition will be difficult. Need to catch him on tape. I will be up front with all of you. Going to these kind of functions is new to me and I am in a learning curve on active politics. Had the chance to ask some questions a good friend helped me with. I submitted two and got them asked.

1) Should all earmarks be given transparency by identifying the earmark sponsored and do you support minority leader John Boehner's reform measures, House Resolution 479 and HR 559.

His quote, "Definitely", I ran by standing by your pork" to first part. Yep. that's what he said. Named earmarks he has brought into northeastern Wis,. Second part never answered. I understand earmarks, but this guy is really in campaign mode. Taking credit for what he brought in and what he wants to spend in the future. He says he want to turn U S 41 into an interstate. Wants to have a V A hospital built in Green Bay.

2) Concerning your proposal " No Discrimination in Health Care legislation ( HR 5449) - One piece of your legislation would require health care providers to post their prices. You have said that prices in your family's Allergy clinics aren't posted because current law won't allow it. Could you please tell us what current law you are speaking of ?

During his opening remarks he spent 5 minutes on this. Doctors and clinics should post prices. Thought I had him on this one! When the question was asked he said, he doesn't own his clinics, sold them and pretty much question was dropped. Questioner made comment well you don't own them so we don't need an answer. I should of pushed him on what law is on the books! His big thing is to push "purchasing pools".

Other questions that were asked. Paraphrasing some questions and answers.

Hobart, what will you do to stop land being taken off tax rolls by Native American tribes? Hurting tax base to towns and villages.
Answer, It's a state and federal solution. The fed should make townships that loose tax base whole again. Didn't answer the question except we taxpayers should pay for it. You people in Hobart, he's leaving you HIGH and DRY! In his mind he probably said " you SUCKERS" Rolled right into paper mill in Niagrara loosing jobs and the company is responsible for displaced workers when plants shut down. Throw it on the business, It's big businesses fault.

Fisa law., "it's a SMOKESCREEN, we are secure in this country"! He said it again, "it's a SMOKESCREEN!" What the heck is he talking about. Someone should be able to run with this one! We can now say Steve Kagen is on record as saying we are all safe and there is nothing to worry about as far as a terrorist threat. Wants the courts to rule on who should be listened to before we ease drop on some terrorist. Mr. Kagen also said, " cell phones are being tracked now!" Wow, what does he know that us average people don't know. Steve , how do you know this?

Question brought up about Pension Benefit System. Senator Bird's wife when he dies will get all his federal benefits from the federal government. Is that right. Other people don't have those kind of benefits.

Are you ready for the answer, Sit down, get ready for this one, and I quote Steve, "I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT." Holy cow Batman, what did we send him to Washington for?

Steve's comment, the 110 th congress is a "pay as you go" congress, we don't pass any bills if we don't have the money. The only thing congress passed that wasn't a pay as you go was the ATM fix. What? Is his congress a pay as you go congress? Can someone clarify his double speak?

Some general comments and, promises, campaign pledges, what ever you want to call them from my good buddy Steve.

V.A. hospital in Green Bay. - wants the vets vote.
3% tax deduction on health care. - wants the elderly vote.
3% deduction on property taxes.- wants everyone's vote.
Wants purchasing pools in health care.- going for the uninsured vote
Wants government controls on prescription drugs.- going for the elderly vote again.
Doesn't like WTO. - doesn't like business and likes union votes.
Wants lawyers to sue China - wants lawyer pac money or just cash donations from trial lawyers.

Dr K did say he is "All in favor of campaign finance reform" - doesn't say what kind but is a good sound bite. I guess we might find out what kind he will now be in favor of. What will save his behind? Family campaign donations can sometimes get you in a jam if they are not on the up and up, we shall see.

Wants to protect higher paid employees - I think he meant teacher union jobs, you little non union folks can take a hike.

Said everyone's purchasing power is down - say what, good sound bite.

Thanks Steve for all your hard work.

P. S. Thinking back on my experience, I wondering if I should next time introduce myself to Mr. Kagen and his assistant ( I think his name was Jake). " Pleasure to meet you Mr. Kagen, I'm Paul , I have a Blog called "Berry Laker" and I also comment on "WTH" blog site.

Do you think he would shake my hand? It's worth a try. Steve, see you next time.

Please help us send Dr. Kagen back to private practice.

PSSST, Don't Tell Anyone

As I travel the this great state I am always looking for gasoline stations that sell real gasoline with no ETHANOL in it. So far in northeastern Wisconsin I have found three stations without the crap in it!

No Ethanol Gas Stations
Mobil - Taylor / Shawano Ave
Citgo - Hwy 41 / HWY B Suamico
B P - Hwy 45 Summit Lake

I always make it a point to thank the owner or tell the attendent to thank the owner of the station for having real gasoline.

Here is a dirty little secret that I should take to the Wisconsin Consumer Protection.

SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, they don't want anyone to know. Gasoline stations that sell gasoline with ethanol get a .10 reduced cost for the blended gasoline.

That means they are price gouging customers! They are charging the same price for 10% blended as for regular no ethanol gasoline. Wouldn't this also be a part of price fixing?

If the market is set for regular non blended gasoline and they are getting a .10 discount then they should be charging .10 less than stations that charge for real gasoline. Where is our A G on this?

Where is the outrage? Link to Wisconsin Consumer Protection

SHHHHHHH, lets spread the word, only buy gas at real gasoline dealers. Support dealers that are trying to make it with regular non blended gasoline. They need our business. Don't forget the soda ands snacks, they need the profits!

Renewable Energy?

Study: Another 300 Wisconsin
schools could be heated with wood
By ROBERT IMRIE Associated Press
WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- A new study by a
group trying to save energy concludes that up to 300 schools in Wisconsin could switch to wood heat and save hundreds of thousands of dollars in energy costs.
The study, financed by Focus on Energy, found the change - based on current natural gas prices - would save schools up to $75,000 each year, paying for the investments perhaps within five years.

I'm sorry, isn’t burning wood destroying our planet? Don't you increase carbon dioxide into the atmosphere?

Wisconsin has 16.1 million acres of forests, covering 46 percent of the state's
land area, the study said.

How do we cut down these trees if Diamond Jim keeps putting more land into state owned land every budget? Will he release some of it to heat schools? Don't think so unless he is getting his pocket greased!

There are many questions. Only one answer, follow the money!

Let's see, first who owns the trees, oh yea, the state will pay premium price for the wood! Cha ching! Second, who will cut down the trees? Cha ching, lumber companies! Second who will haul the wood? Cha ching, trucking companies! Oh lets not forget the company that manufactures the boilers! Cha ching! Oh wait someone has to install them, cha ching, heating contractors!

Now if they use wood pellets, the pellet manufacturer, cha ching! Now you have the company that sells the pellets, cha ching! Now we have to have someone fill the boilers at the school, can we say more union people, cha ching! Hang on, we will need two to three people to keep it stoked 24/7! Oh my, where will it end?

Now , I am not against the free market system. If these guys make money (profits) so be it. What I am P O'd about is that all the money will be piad by tax dollors. Can we say the $300.00 gov. hammer. How about the $1000.00 gov. toliet seat. Hummmmmm, ethanol plants anyone. Can we say higher food prices from higher corn prices? Someone will make money, but because it will be someone else's money ( TAXPAYERS), the cost for all facets of this will go sky high. And the taxpayer will keep paying and paying and paying!

How big of a wood boiler will it take to heat a school?

What about Geo Thermal. It heats and cools! Paul you dumb a_ _, thats not going to make them rich!

What do we do when we run out of trees? What do we do when the environment is being destroyed?

This seems like the boilermakers are taking a page from the ethanol corn pimps selling us out on gasoline? A whore, is a whore, is a whore! They always will take the money!

Can we all say" FOLLOW THE MONEY

Where Is It Coming From.

From Rush's Thursday Show.

RUSH: I just saw this story on, and I'm really curious about this. "Hillary Clinton's campaign is set to announce later today that she's on track to raise roughly $35 million in the month of February, a huge month by any standard measure of political fundraising and her best of the
campaign." Now, "Obama raised $36 million in January, and appears to be on track to surpass that figure this month." So $35 million for Hillary; over $36 million for Obama. We're looking here at $72 million! Where in the hell is this money
coming from? We've got a story here that economic growth came to a screeching halt in the first quarter. Was it the first quarter, or adjusted fourth? What did I do with the damn story? It's 0.6%, whatever it is. The economy has come to
a screeching halt.

Now, where in the hell is this money coming from? We got gasoline heading to four bucks a gallon; it's already there in some places. We have people who can't pay their mortgages and are being foreclosed on. We got people now can't afford food because of biofuels and the cost of wheat and the cost of corn. How in the world are people giving $70 million in one month to two Democrats? Where is this money coming from and how come these Democrats out there raising all this money aren't saying, "Don't give the money to me! Keep it for yourself because we're in a recession and you're going to need it to buy gasoline and food, and you're going to need it to pay your mortgage." Why aren't they saying that? They're begging people for their money, in the midst of all this malaise, supposedly. But I still want to know where it's coming from, because they say it's being raised on the Internet.

This is awfully curious to me. You mean to tell me that in the midst of what people think is a failing economy, that they're still running out to give money to Hillary and Barack? Well, they may be. You might have the janitors or the dishwashers in Chinatown. They might be flourishing. That's my point. Where is this coming from?

To my liberal relitves, are you giving money?

leap year –noun
(in the Gregorian calendar) a year that contains 366 days, with February 29 as an additional day: occurring in years whose last two digits are evenly divisible by four, except for centenary years not divisible by 400.

What does a leap year really mean?
If it's your birthday today and you were born in 1960, are you 48 or 12? Why isn't this a major holiday, shouldn't the post office and stock market be closed today? Ah yes, let us not forget our union brothers and sisters, they should get the day off. Or they should be at least be claiming overtime, it is a extra day on the calender. Here's some things you may not know.


Leap Year has been the traditional time that women can propose marriage.

Did you know there is a web site for leapers?

From Yahoo today in history

In 1504, Christopher Columbus, stranded in Jamaica during his fourth voyage to the West, used a correctly predicted lunar eclipse to frighten hostile natives into providing food for his crew. That evil white guy started the whole thing.

In 1940, "Gone with the Wind" won eight Academy Awards, including best picture of 1939. My angel's favorite movie.

In 1960, the first Playboy Club, featuring waitresses clad in "bunny" outfits, opened in Chicago. In my younger day went to the one in Lake Geneva, was not impressed except for the bunnies.

Twelve years ago: About 30 television and entertainment industry executives met with President Clinton at the White House, where they promised to devise a TV ratings system. Oh yes, we can see that is working today.

Eight years ago: George W. Bush won Republican presidential primaries in Virginia, Washington state and North Dakota, defeating John McCain. Well, eight years, not sure what to say.

Four years ago:"The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" won a record-tying 11 Academy Awards, including best picture. Great Movie.

Well, one more day in the year, one more day for my angel to give me my honey do list, one more day to enjoy my God, my family , my job and interests. Always in that order. Enjoy the day.

The perfect number Badgers turn ball over once, become No. 1 in Big Ten
Posted: Feb. 28, 2008

Madison - One. That was the all-important number
Thursday night in the University of Wisconsin's 57-42 victory over Michigan State.

In winning their school record 14th Big Ten game, the 10th-ranked Badgers set a school record with just one turnover. And in a strong defensive display, they held Badgers-killer Drew Neitzel to one basket and three points and the league's top shooting team to 20 points and 30% shooting in the second half.

Not, much more to say.

Pet Sterilization Becomes Law in LA
Email this StoryFeb 26, 8:02 PM (ET)
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Tuesday signed one of the nation's toughest laws on pet sterilization, requiring most dogs and cats to be spayed or neutered by the time they are 4 months old.
The ordinance is aimed at reducing and eventually eliminating the thousands of euthanizations conducted in Los Angeles' animal shelters every year. "We will, sooner rather than later, become a no-kill city and this is the greatest step in that direction," Councilman Tony Cardenas said as he held a kitten at a City Hall news conference.
Councilman Richard Alarcon, who like Cardenas is
a co-author of the bill, brought his two pet Chihuahuas to the event to be neutered in a van operated by the city.

How long before this will happen to human children? Change the date and some words and you could say some day,


Sterilization Becomes Law in LA Feb 26, 8:02 PM 2058
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Mayor Johnny Macbama on Tuesday signed one of the nation's toughest laws on human sterilization, requiring most male and female adults to be spayed or neutered by the time they are 14 years of age.

The ordinance is aimed at reducing and eventually eliminating the thousands of euthanizations conducted in Los Angeles' abortion shelters every year. "We will, sooner rather than later, become a no-kill city and this is the greatest step in that direction," Councilman Eddy Divito said as he held his granddaughter at a City Hall news conference. Councilman Joe Chicksteer, who like Divito is a co-author of the bill, brought his two grandchildren to the event to be neutered in a van operated by the city.

Anti smoking started in the sixties, where is it today? What can happen to abortions. Where will it all end. You lefties will do anything to expand your agenda, including abortion. If the left keeps moving left, anything can happen.

New WISN boss brings insight — and lands
Posted: Feb. 25, 2008
If Lori Waldon is remembered for just one thing as news director at WISN-TV (Channel 12), it will be for the biggest coup in Milwaukee TV history: bringing Mike Gousha to the ABC affiliate.

The 46-year-old Waldon has been at the helm of Channel 12's news operation for a little more than a year, and that tenure could run a long, long time. She already has broken a major barrier, becoming the first person of color to lead a Milwaukee TV newsroom.

Congratulations to Lori Waldon on being the boss at WISN. The difference between conservatives and liberals is the following.

I do not see her as a person of color. I do not see her as a female in a mans world. The left will always dress up a story with cutsie words that are supposed to enlighten the readers. Oh, " a person of color!"

I must have a right wing problem. A partisan problem that the left accuses us of all the time.

Sorry Tim, I only see her as a person who was hired for her skills and experience and looks like she's doing one heck of a job. To you lefty kook nuts, sorry I did not notice her gender or skin color.

Lori, keep up the GREAT work!

Berry Laker's White Deer

Location, Hwy 51 west , just east of Bay road, a half mile east of CTH W in Manitowish Waters.

As I was traveling to Hurley this morning, a truck slowed down for some deer crossing the road. In front of the right side of the truck I could see two brown deer running from left to right. As the truck moved on I turned to the right to see the deer. The Lord must of been with me. Right there , three white tail deer, two brown and one completely white, white tail deer, What an awesome sight.

The locals all said they have a few around that area. One person said there must be a buck with stamina and is producing several white deer. He said the white herd is growing. I don't know if it was an albino or not. I did not see pink eyes. What ever the case, if you havent seen one in the wild, your missing something spectacular. I could not believe what I was seeing. Most people will never see such a sight.
If I only had my camera. Well it looked like the one above but no horns. The above picture is from google search. The dumb ass I am , I certainly will take a camera with me next time.

Oh crap, I just thought of it, I had a camera on my cell phone! O K , I'm an idiot. The moment was just too much.

He's Still My Friend

Neighbor could face charge after cattle wandered to his farm
PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis. (AP) -- Three months after nearly a dozen cattle wandered off a Crawford County farm, a district attorney is considering a theft charge against a neighbor.
A rural Wauzeka man allegedly cut off the ear tags
of 11 cows and heifers that wandered to his farm and failed to return the animals to owner Larry Stluka, according to sheriff's officials.

Moran said even though the neighbor didn't take the cattle off the property, what he did is still theft.

Stluka said the accused thief has been a "good neighbor" otherwise.

"Naturally, you hold it against him, but I still like the guy, " he said.

He wasn't stealing, just borrowing! When are we going to hold people responsable and call it the way it is.
Oh, but I still like the guy. GEEEEZZZZZZ!

Green Bay area becoming increasingly important in politics
'Evenly-divided' region is a high priority
Green Bay and Northeastern Wisconsin is becoming known for more than paper and Packers. Add politics to the list. The changing demographics in this part of the state have caught the attention of national campaign strategists, making the Green Bay area a high priority on the itinerary of presidential candidates.

"It is a swing area but still leans a little
Republican," said Paul Gigot, a Green Bay native who is editorial page editor and vice president of The Wall Street Journal. "You've got a heavy
Catholic area, and Catholics nationwide are the ultimate swing group."

We all have a lot of work to do.

Lawton undecided, but doesn't plan on seeking third term

Madison -- Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton says she loves the job but does not plan to seek a third term in 2010. The Democratic leader said she hasn't made a final decision, though.
I have made many comments on Barbara Lawton taking over for Diamond Jim if his escapades ever caught up with him. Calling Barbara our next gov.

Now what am I going to do?

Do you think maybe she was embarrassed that Hillary lost the primary and Diamond Jim threw it in her face? Probably so. Little Napoleon Jim has a thing for people who disagree with him.
