Post Card Memory

Before the Pier Restaurant sat on the corner down at the waterfront there was a A&W I have
been told. But long before that there was the Trading Post. I'm not certain the years? But perhaps
somebody will chime in with that information?  1940's?  Earlier?

Ice Caves possible again this year?

BAYFIELD, Wis. - Continued calm and cold weather could create the right conditions for people to access the ice caves on Lake Superior near the Apostle Islands again this year.
Julie Van Stappen is chief of planning and resource management for the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.
She tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press there's a "very good chance" that thick and stable ice along the shoreline could happen if cold temperatures and low winds continue. But she says they should have a better idea next month.
The caves opened last Jan. 15 for the first time in five years. Over two months, an estimated 138,000 visitors made the mile trek to view the ice formations. The popularity prompted the park service to propose a $5 fee. The proposal hasn't yet been approved
