Flashback Friday

From July 1987 this was one of the earliest events put on in memory of murder victim Rae Tourtillott.

The case officially remains unsolved and there have been some recent efforts to re-focus on it as part of MMIW efforts, so if anyone has any information they should contact authorities.

The construction on State Highway 47-55 is by no means finished; but one recent development is that ADA-compliants sidewalks were added to the southbound side of the road and the southbound lane has been repaved in the southern construction area, allowing construction operations to now move to the northbound lane of State Highway 47-55 (the detour to Go Around Road still exists for northbound traffic).

Thank you to Douglas Cox and the other members of Wis Tribal Nations for coming forward opposing the wolf hunt in WIS. It seems like every time the GOP losses any election they want to take it out on the poor wolf. I STAND with the Tribal Nations opposing a wolf hunt/trapping of any kind. The wolf is your spirit brother, and an ASSAULT on the wolf is an ASSAULT ON THE NATIVE PEOPLE.
