Main Street Memories Car Show Back for 24th Year
Published on 05/25/2018 under News Here in Tomahawk, Memorial Day weekend brings the return of the Main Street Memories Car Show. The event has grown and evolved from its humble origins 24 years ago. The organizers once again anticipate around 300 cars entered into the show. Main Street Director Aimee Dickerall joined Jeff on the Morning Forum earlier this week to discuss the show. She says with that many entries, "there is a car for everyone." She also talked about how it's more than just viewing the cars, noting that the participants are passionate and have plenty of stories to tell about their cars. The Saturday motorcycle show has gone away, there are plenty of other reasons to stop downtown early. They have a Main Street Memories Cruise, with the 18 mile route following the Fall Ride Thunder Parade Route. Tomahawk resident Swede Jorgensen will also have his '55 Chevy museum open. Then on Sunday it's car time, but Dickerell says the Tomahawk show is "not just for gear heads" as they once again have plenty of family friendly activities including a petting zoo and crafters.

Safe Boating Includes Life Vests Use; Musky Opener; and Reservoir Levels
Published on 05/25/2018 under News Many residents and visitors alike will hit Northwoods waters this weekend, and the DNR is reminding boaters to use safe boating practices. That means operating safe and sober, and making sure your boat is properly equipped. That includes consistent life preserver use, one of the focuses of this year's National Safe Boating Week campaign. While many are familiar with the requirements that ski boats, fishing boats and pontoons must have enough life jackets for each person on board, April Dombrowski with the DNR also notes that the rule covers canoeists and kayakers. The DNR also recommends checking to ensure the life preservers you use are US Coast Guard approved. And if the boat is 16 feet or longer, it must include a throwable. Opener for Musky Season in Northern Zone This weekend marks the start of the musky opener for anglers here in the Northwoods. The DNR divides the musky season into northern and southern zones to account for differences in water temperature and spawning dates. While the musky waters south of Hwy 10 opened early this month, tomorrow marks the start of the season for those north of the Highway. Area Reservioirs The area reservoir levels have stabilized for the most part over the past week according to numbers from WVIC. The Eau Plaine and Rainbow are each about a half foot below full. Nokomis actually dropped a few inches, it's about a foot down. The Willow is steady at around 20 inches below full, and the Spirit is 2.5 feet down.
