Greetings from the hustle and bustle of beautiful dry dry Barnes. We need rain desperately. The fire danger is very high. This comes very early this year. Usually around Memorial Day the DNR is red flagging the area for burning. We have had the driest March ever. All the snow has been gone for weeks. I believe all lakes are open. The golf courses are all open, this is a unbelievable. I suppose we will pay for this!
It wasn't a stellar week for either bowling or pool. We lost all bowling games. I did get my average twice so individually not a total bust. We are continuing our way to the bottom. Boohoo! Now on to pool George Radar and I won the empty 12 pack again. Both of us are trying to break that record of the most empty 12 packs=which means we lost all our games. Speaking of pool are 7th annual 9 ball pool tournament will be held May 8, 2010 at the Trading Post. For more information call me 795-2320 or Ken Lowery 795-2005.

Thanks to all who supported the Pub run. It was a success. A few items need to be ironed out but all in all a success. It sure helped with business this winter.

Last week was spent in Eau Claire for the Tavern League of Wisconsin. We have some serious issues coming up. MADD wants interlocks on all vehicles. Which means you would have to blow into a device and your car won't start if there is a trace of alcohol. What's next? We need to end all of this nonsense. We will be getting and new Governor. We definitely need a change. Also Gary Sherman our 73rd district assembly person was appointed and new position. So we will have to look at our local races as well. If you do not belong to the WI Tavern League you should. Contact me or go to for more information. We are a strong organization for the rights of small businesses. Get involved. Don't forget to vote on Tuesday April 6, 2010.

Elliott continues with his drum lessons from Mr. Lane the band instructor at Drummond High school. Rock on. Elliott has signed up for Little League and will be on the Grandview team. Now the running begins!

A big warm Happy Easter to everyone. I hope you enjoy the weekend.
