    The coronavirus pandemic could spell the end of Chuck E. Cheese. The popular kid’s restaurant had to close its 610 locations nationwide during the outbreak. Now, $1 billion in debt has Chuck E. Cheese’s parent company, CEC Entertainment, approaching bankruptcy.The Wall Street Journal reports that CEC is asking lenders for a $200 million to keep its business going. For comparison, the news is similar to the recent circumstances that led to the retail band JC Penney filing bankruptcy last month.CEC has also offered its top executives retention bonuses to try and keep them from leaving, including $3 million to three of its executives,...

    SHAWANO, WI A Shawano Downtown business recently had an unexpected visitor. A deer ended up inside a Main Street business last week. It may sound like the start of a bad joke, but for awhile, it was no laughing matter. Duane Schultz owns Kims Discount store on Main Street. He says Thursday was a day that he will never forget. A customer just walked out the door and he said a few minutes later he heard a crash. A deer came into the door and it stopped at the table and looked at me, he said. All I could...
  • My Native American father drew the Land OLakes maiden. She was never a stereotype.

    She was never a stereotype. That was my thought earlier this month when I heard that Mia, as the Land OLakes Native American maiden was known, had been taken off the butter box. She was gone, vanished, missing. I knew Mia had devolved into a stereotype in many peoples minds. But it was the stereotype some saw that bothered me. North Dakota state Rep. Ruth Buffalo (D), for instance, told the Pioneer Press in St. Paul, Minn., that the Land OLakes image of Mia went hand-in-hand with human and sex trafficking of our women and girls by depicting Native...

    My uncle got angry this morning on the phone. Said more police officers should be yelled at regarding Coronavirus enforcement and because they are not protecting and serving their communities. He says people should listen to BLM. I think he is off his rockers, but is he right about a big police-civilian disconnect?

    Flubros day 5! Its just the flu, bro. Starting this thread earlier in the day today so that East Coasters can see it more easily. How do you become a flubro (or flubra) and join the caucus? Easy - all you have to do is correctly recognize that Wuhan Chinese flu is not really that dangerous compared to an ordinary flu and the government/media/health care industrial complexes are overblowing things. Swine flu killed 12k in one year a decade ago in the USA and hardly anything got shut down. The economic consequences of this overreach will kill more than this...

    Double postings of items of interest are common. Most of the time, folks here do check before they post. If it is a newly reported item - once one has checked to make sure it is not posted - it takes time to make a new post. Some of us here are slower than others. Usually because we want to verify, clarify, and check the story over all. To those that are quick to jump with condemnation, please consider this, you are no better than the media that rush to publish a story without verification.

    arack Obama was in a serious relationship shortly before he met Michelle Obama. In his memoir Dreams From My Father, the ex-POTUS recounted what it was like telling his sister, Auma, about a woman named Genevieve Cook. After meeting Cook in 1983 in New York, the two started dating. In the book Barack Obama: The Story, author David Maraniss said that Baracks relationship with Cook was the deepest relationship hes had then. However, when Cook expressed her love for the ex-president of the United States, the dad of two simply replied by saying thank you instead of I love you...

    France is threatening a strong European riposte if the Trump administration follows through on a proposal to hit French cheese, Champagne, handbags and other products with tariffs of up to 100%. The U.S. Trade Representative proposed the tariffs on $2.4 billion in goods Monday in retaliation for a French tax on global tech giants including Google, Amazon and Facebook. Im not in love with those (tech) companies, but theyre our companies, Trump said Tuesday ahead of a sure-to-be-tense meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in London. The move is likely to increase trade tensions between the U.S. and Europe....

    Lost to the outside world for a generationand feared extincta small deer-like species with tiny fangs has been photographed tiptoeing through a dry lowland forest in southern Vietnam... The silver-backed chevrotain, also known as the Vietnamese mouse-deer, is about the size of a large rabbit, with a silver sheen on its rump. The creatures have tusk-like incisors, visible in the new photographs of the animals. Because chevrotains lack horns or antlers, and the fangs are especially long in males, scientists think the males use them to compete for territory and mates.

    A very large animal got stuck in a New Hampshire pool Tuesday night -- and was not a-moosed. A young bull moose waded into the backyard pool and couldn't climb out for hours, because it didn't have stairs. Officials from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department swooped in to save the moose, eventually coaxing it out of the pool by placing a wooden set of stairs underwater. After emerging from the water, the moose took off into the woods.

    Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Authorities in Wyoming said they had to use a Taser to subdue a moose so they could disentangle its antlers from a resident's hammock. The Sublette County Sheriff's Office said deputies and Wyoming Game and Fish personnel responded to a residence this week where a bull moose was reported to be caught in a hammock hanging from a tree. "Due to the nature of the entangled animal and the proximity to hunting season, a tranquilizer would render the animal not harvestable and inedible," the sheriff's office said. The deputies used a Taser to subdue the moose...
