Update Little Falls 3/18/2010
- A look at the history of the tastes of the art of former Federal Reserve Chairmans. The sense of freedom in the expression of art may enhance the development of investment of money in expressed directions. Ref: The Wall Street Journal, 3/16/10 page D9
- Post commander Colonel Richard Weaver's of Camp Ripley will be retiring on May 31 st after 30 years in the military service. He just can't get enough of the Army, so he is going to take a civilian position on Camp Ripley the next day. We need more men like him in the military. Ref: Little Falls Radio, news sheet, 3/15/10 page 2 3.The first excitment I have seen in Little Falls since I moved here, is the Spring ice jam on the Mississippi River. The jam damaged the major Highway 10 bridge ends and is now coming down the river to the dam. I have a view of the jam coming down the river just outside of my window. The dam is open almost all the way with it's 8 gates, large spillway and log-shoot. I walked down to look at it after leaving work this morning at Pete & Joy's Bakery and there were a few sheets of ice in two of the gates blocking almost 1/2 of the flow. The jam should be out of the way in a week or so, with the river being open again. Ref: Brainerd Dispatch, 3/18/10 page 1A and 3A
- It looks like the U.S. has been striped of almost everything. A man can't even make a living off scrap metal anymore. This industry may explode if the U.S. ever makes a come-back in consumption.
