A new place to throw away your toxic waste

Shawano County's Solid Waste Management Board has reached an agreement with the Brown County Port and Solid Waste Department to receive Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) from Shawano County residents. The agreement is for the remainder of 2000.

According to the agreement, residents of Shawano County will be granted access to Brown County's facility, the same as Brown County residents. According to Shawano County long range planner Tim Reed, this means they can deliver material to the facility to be properly dispose of at no direct cost to themselves.

The St. James church fire: Disaster, perhaps miracle, happened 57 years ago

Leader correspondent

I was riding my bicycle with Gary Gruetzmacher on Picnic Street, near my home, when the fire whistle blew. It was Saturday, about noon, and the fire whistle and Shawano paper mill whistle always blew to announce the noon hour.

The year was 1943, WWII was still being fought. I was 9 years old at the time. One of the Den girls, a neighbor who had a phone (not too many people had phones back then), hollered out the door that the Lutheran Church was on fire. St. James was the only Lutheran Church in town.
