Spooner Advocate Column- January 10, 2013

Good morning neighbors! How is everyone doing out there? Are we recovered from all the holidays and running around? 
It sure has been nice to see the sun shining even though it has been kind of windy and cool. As long as it is sunny it sure helps us deal with the colder weather. I hear alot of folks are using the snowmobile trails north of our area, hope you are all having fun and staying safe.
