Notes for the Week - June 29th


This week on Facebook, someone asked if the Menomonie High School would take an old lawnmower for use in the tech ed department. One of the teachers responded that they would take items like that whether or not they are working. Here is a link to that post. Otherwise contact the high school office at 232-2606.


Share by the Dunn County Fish and Game: Pheasants are here! This past week we received 3000 pheasant chicks that we will raise and release them around the county in the fall. Birds will be placed on both public and private land.

Metal at the Mabel is coming up on Saturday July 8th. Here is an article from Volume One about this first of its kind event at the Mabel. More information, including a link to tickets, can be found here.


Shared by the City of Menomonie - Lithium-ion batteries don't belong in the trash or your recycling cart! They can start fires very easily - see this video for an example. Several recycling facilities in the state have recently had large, devastating fires that have shut down operations for months. Lithium-ion batteries can be saved for a Clean Sweep collection or brought to Batteries Plus & Bulbs or First Choice Recycling in Eau Claire for proper recycling.


The Mabel Tainter shared that Tainter family relatives recently visited and brought what they believe to be a picture of Mary Poskin Goose, Andrew Tainter's first wife. She was the daughter of the chief of the Lac Courte Oreilles tribe, a band of the Ojibwe nation. The Mabel Tainter had been unable to locate a picture and didn't think one even existed. Both the family and historians believe this could finally be a picture of Mary Poskin Goose, the mother of Mabel’s half-siblings.
