2020 Books from the Heart, Helping more than just Children I received this letter a while back, along with the other business owners in our town, from a very special person at our local school and thought that I would pass it on for others to help out too. Contributing to education is never a bad idea, well educated people become successful citizens later, and the cycle keeps growing.  This is why I never balk at the huge amount of property taxes that I pay each year that goes to several school districts that my children have never even gone to. I find it strange that so many seemingly intelligent people fight so hard to cut funding to schools using arguments such as "my children went to private school, why should I pay for the public schools", or one of several similar selfish narrow m...

Riding the Logs Down Wisconsins First Highway, "The Riverman of the Wisconsin River" Mural   Being a great fan of local art, I often enjoy riding my bike through the downtown area of Stevenst Point where many small and large murals are painted depicting our history. This gem is located on the corner of Water and Clark Streets,  in Downtown Stevens Point. The Riverman Mural is a tribute to Stevens Point's strong logging heritage.  Logging was one of the first large industries to build our state and today it still is, though we no longer use river power to move these important resources from the woods to the mills.   This is the first of the  series of murals and wasCompleted in September 2004.                 This is also the first of many murals that I will be featuring in the next few...

Stevens Point Historical Moment     Stevens Point was founded in 1858, during a time when the Wisconsin River was a major highway going from NE Wisconsin to the Mississippi River in SW Wisconsin.     The loggers traveling down the river floating logs used a grocery and supply store owned by George Stevens, on a sharp bend in the river as a convent spot for a landing.     A lot of things have happened in Stevens Point since then including the development of the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point College of natural resources which first brought Bob Crane here over 30 years ago.     I am still enjoying the developing history of this town, and suggest that if you get a chance, you should stop in to experience some of this developing history.     Enjoy your summer.     Bob

Rent Prices Rising Again, This May Be a Good Time For You To Become a Homeowner, I Can Help.I read another article today from a reliable source at KCM, predicting another year of escalating rental rates through the country.Considering the cost of being a landlord is also rising, I predict that I will also be rising the rates this summer on the homes that I still have by that time.Part of my plan when I started increasing my rental business back in 2008 was to be out of the business within 10 years so now is the time that I will begin divesting in these properties.If becoming a homeowner and putting your rent money into something that will build equity for your future interests you, then I can help.

St Vincents, Green Gifts, Great Prices, Helping People  St Vincent, Great Opportunity To Volunteer, Donate, And Get Great Gifts At Great Prices! Some of you may remember that I blogged about these fine folks earlier this year, but I think that they are deserving of a second blog as we approach Christmas.   St Vinnie’s is a charity that I have a lot of admiration for; they do great work without the high executive salaries of similar organizations like goodwill and the red cross.  When I donate here, I know that all of my donations are going to go to those who need them rather toward high executive salaries.   In my life I seem to collect a lot of stuff to donate and it gives me great pleasure when I can load up a truckload of nice stuff to take down to St Vinnie’s where I know that it wi...
