|PACK ICE BEGINNING TO FORM IN THE CHANNEL|
|ICE SHANTIES ON CHEQUAMEGON BAY|
Fish shanties have sprung up on lower Chequamegon Bay at Ashland. Each has an attendant snowmobile or ATV. I would think it a bit early to be on the ice, although much of it has been nominally frozen for some time. Actually, much of the Bay there is pretty shallow, except for the shipping lanes, which is one reason it freezes early. I would point out, however, that even a tall person will drown just as thoroughly in ten feet of water as in one hundred. Most every year at least one person goes through the ice and drowns somewhere on Chequamegon Bay.
I see an environmental group, the Center for Biological Diversity, is set to sue the Obama administration to force it to restore wolves in all the lower 48 states. People in New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware may be in for a surprise while waiting for the commuter train if the suit is successful. How about wolves in Washington, DC; they could snarl nose to nose with the politicians over the pork that is so abundant there. Please, can’t we have some sanity in this country?
