Monday, May 5th at 6 p.m., Jim and Gary Hess will be on hand at the WJ Niederkorn Library to talk about their grandfather’s fascinating legacy as the owner and operator of Wisconsin’s largest independent cooperage from 1904 to 1966.

 

The Frank J. Hess and Sons Cooperage factory manufactured and repaired beer kegs for most of the Wisconsin breweries, and the Hamm’s Brewery in Baltimore, Maryland; Star Brewery in Sioux City, Iowa; and the West End Brewery in Utica, New York. They were also known for making and repairing wine and whiskey barrels. In 1966 the Frank J. Hess and Sons Cooperage factory closed.  It was the last cooperage factory in America that manufactured white oak beer kegs for the breweries.

 

Join us for a fun night brewed in Wisconsin History!

Digital Magazines – What No Cats?

Pets

Well Port is a dog town. So many good conscientious dog owners. But surely some cat magazine could get their act together and produce a good electronic version that we could add to our digital collection in the future. After all they make for such cute pictures. But for now, dog and horse lovers enjoy these digital magazines (and you lucky few who are birders).

Download them to your laptop or tablet to take with you on the road.

You can view the magazines in your web browser or in an app. You can keep them for as long as you want.

Want to view these magazines or any other of the 167, click on the Zinio Magazines link to the right to get started.

To find these titles – From the “Genres” drop down menu select “Pets and Animals”.

BIkes

I have just been plagued with the desire to get out and ride my bicycle. I am more careful now and don’t ride through the ice anymore. But now I want to ride, ride, ride.

I probably should get a new bike soon, I will be looking at Bicycling’s buyers guide issue to give me some good ideas as I prepare to go shopping. But if you have kids/teens they may be more interested in Transworld RideBMX.

With Zinio you can checkout the most recent issue and past issues and open them on your computer or tablet. Dig in.
