“Reality.” The word has a comfortable, solid sound to it, doesn’t it? Good old reality. Dependable, like the North Star…like sunrise. But, is it actually like that? Are you sure that it isn’t just a bunch of ideas planted in your head? Really?
On the other hand, “brainwashing” has such a sinister sound [...]
I’d like to provide some logical, scientific information about the open pit iron mine proposed for the Penokee Hills in Ashland and Iron Counties of Wisconsin.

We knew it would happen. On Friday, March 8, 2013 the corrupt Republican crooks in the Wisconsin legislature passed the mining deregulation bill written at the behest of coal mining magnate Chris Cline. By a 58 to 39 party line vote in the Wisconsin Assembly, the giveaway of our resources to that greedy bastard [...]
We were lucky this year. The weather was perfect for the 40th American Birkebeiner Ski Race from Cable to Hayward. The snow depth was knee deep, and temperatures hovered just below the freezing mark all day. You could say that it was a nicely average winter day in late February.
A group of citizens concerned [...]
It’s a big weekend in Hayward. The 40th anniversary of the American Birkebeiner Ski Race, with about 8,000 (an educated guess) skiers and another 10 or 15 thousand visitors is currently under way.

For starters, there is more than just low grade iron ore to be found in the Penokee Range. The so-called waste rock, a.k.a. the Tyler Shale formation, is rich in phosphate.

The meeting room was packed [...]
