Commercial Fishing with Wendell Schroeder
Commercial Fishing with Wendell Schroeder
The Mississippi River has traditionally been a July theme of Julien’s Journal. Though lately, we have become more open and less confined to our traditional themes, I wanted to do a story on commercial fishing on the Mississippi – a subject I knew very little about despite the fact that I’d been sport fishing on the river since I was a five-year-old. I contacted the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to see if there were any commercial fishermen still operating in the area. Gene Jones, Fisheries Technician for the DNR, recommended a few people who were still involved in the practice – one of those was Wendell Schroeder who lives just north of Dubuque near the Mississippi River at Mud Lake.
Love It or Leave It: It’s Christmas in July
Love It or Leave It: It’s Christmas in July
Christmas in July. You’ve all heard the term. It used to mean an unexpected courtesy or a gift given without occasion, perhaps a discount realized that you didn’t know existed. Now it means just what it says, and an Internet search shows 200 million results. That means the notion of celebrating this beloved holiday smack dab in the middle of summer, just over half way to the real McCoy, is gaining steam. Where did this wacky notion come from?
4-H Kids Get Ready For The Fair
4-H Kids Get Ready For The Fair
The barn door swings open to the sounds of excited bleating, and 15-year-old Garrett Pfeiler catches a young Boer goat as it attempts to sneak past him to freedom. Sunlight slanting across the straw-strewn floor reveals three cream and brown kids, each wearing a name tag dangling from one ear. “Jack” and his twin, “Frost,” are pretty tame since they were bottle-fed for a month in the garage, while “Ivan,” born a few weeks later, hangs back shyly. The goats are a 4-H project for the 2014 Dubuque County Fair, to be held July 22-27.
