Cannery Plannery: Creating a redevelopment…

JUDER6

Personally, I would love to see a "cannery district" strip turned into a bypass with no stoplights directly connecting the North crossing to the west base of the Madison St. bridge. It would keep the incessant traffic off of Old Wells/3rd St. and out of the west riverside neighborhood streets. I do like the idea of making the area more pedestrian friendly. The addition on shops and parks could still be achieved.

Probably a dumb question, but I'm curious.

totally agreed about the "sad" factor. modern country music is just pop music wherein the singer uses a southern accent and maybe a lap-steel guitar or violin is present. it is pathetic "music" that is sold to the masses using clichéd catch phrases that idiots can sing along to. personally I love ANY other type of actual music. being a lifetime musician, I find modern country pop music insulting...

not a dumb question, at all. I've been living in the area for about 20 years and have had the same experience. my musical tastes have had me drive to shows in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Rochester, Lacrosse, Milwaukee, Alpine Valley and Chicago on a regular basis. It would be nice if "the music capitol of the north" had a venue that would entice artists to book shows in EC instead of just rolling tour buses by us on Hwy 94. Hopefully the Confluence Center is the answer???

Ben-You are totally right. REAL men only need two wheels, not four. My old lady rides a motorcycle and I'm scared to death by it. I hope you wear a helmet when you ride, like she does. Otherwise when you hit a deer this fall, you WILL be strengthening the gene pool...

The Value of Wilderness: A Hunter’s…

If you truly believe that eating vegan makes you more "enlightened" or more "evolved" than those of us who are truly a part of the ecosystem by participating in fair-chase hunting and harvesting for food, I certainly will never be able to sway your convictions. The reality of hunting wild game is to use the protein that would otherwise be wasted due to game overpopulation. I personally would rather see a less fortunate family survive a winter with venison than see roads and highways riddled with deer carcasses. Would you rather see car insurance premiums rise exponentially due to wild game accidents, let alone the loss of human life that unfortunately can follow? Or would you rather see a regulated hunting season? I suppose it doesn't matter to you seeing as you only ride your bike or walk to all of your gathering destinations...

Ben-
Technically you are right. "play vehicles" which include skateboards in the state of WI are not allowed in roadways, other than crosswalks obviously. Skateboarders take the calculated risk of fines and serious injury when riding public roads. That's part of the rush. WE don't belong in the middle of the streets, WE choose to be out there enjoying the seven seas of blacktop while your wife is inside watching US and playing with her little "toys"

Best Bar For Talkin'

JUDER6

this is just great! I guess I've never seen anyone use profanity on the discussion board before. especially by a coward that doesn't even have a user name! hahaha!!! I've posted comments before expressing my dislike of the yuppie magnet known as the livery. all I can say for sure is how much I enjoy walking through the alley past the livery to get to the WIGWAM. which is, in my humble opinion, the BEST bar for talking and easily the best bar for breakfast on the weekends. check it out if you haven't been...

I'm not defending mogie. even though I know the dude. and I must admit I ate and drank at the livery once and it sucked. Yuppieville, USA. never went back...
