State Atty General,herself,if going to be prosecutor in the hunter massacre that occured here.Up for re-election next year,after being bagged for DWI,misuse of state vehicle and other inconsistancies in past year.I'm sure this high profile"smoking gun" case has nothing to do with her re-election bid :( Wish WI politicians would stay south of The Popple Curtain where they belong.

Liberal Democrat- personal conflict going after drunk drivers, bad record keepers, shady politicians, possible drug users also- not in party platform. Go after gun incident is in party platform- Dem governor vetoed Personal Protection Act, now griping about federal law for retired police to carry, no orginization exists to identify allowed to carry- would have been simple permit issue under vetoed law. Maybe get rid of a few more Socialist/Marxist/Democrats next election. RN

Yeah, she is a real piece of work. Followed that whole story on the drunk driving and lack of records about her use of a state car....what a dandy we have in her.

Attorney Gen'l is not elected here so I don't know about that part. Sounds like you got her pretty well pegged, though.
What I wanna know is---how far north of the Popple curtain is Ladysmith? Does it follow the Flambeau River?

I've had a family connection to Ladysmith since the mid-1950s but just heard the phrase "behind the popple curtain" a few weeks ago. I've only found 3 references on Google -- can you tell me a little more about it? Did you ever heard how far south of Ladysmith it "starts?" Can you elaborate on it's meaning? I've been told "beyond society..."
Thanks, Frances

We're a bit north,Les.Depends on where it needs to be :),Sometimes 64,sometimes 29,sometimes way down to Hwy 10.All depends who upsets us brush apes.

"Brush apes"? ROFLMAO!! Around here, we're known as "ledge apes". Same folks. Just different geography. Hehhehheh.

Nothing like trying to get some face time before an election. She is just hoping we Wi reisidents outside of Mad city have short memories.
