Spooner Advocate Column- February 7, 2013

I see that the snowmobiles have been out rippin' up the trails and other areas that have alot of snow. I am sure they are just having a blast even though the temps sure have been cold. Remember to dress warm while you are out in this weather. Please drive safe and pay attention to what and who are around you.
Happy Birthday to all those February birthdays out there! I am partial to February as I am a February birthday myself! We are hardy people to be born in such a cold month. =) Hpe you have a beautiful birthday. You are special and we love you!
