Ho Chunk Weekend!



Went up to see my kin, talked about the Casino in Baraboo, we knew a few who worked/had worked there and from what we could recall O.K. jobs pay was not much more then working at the “Farm Store”

Better jobs if you got in management (most jobs here Natives had) or Tech skills fixing the Machines.

Good jobs if low paying.

I was told that the Casino was working on efforts to keep players  at the site.  More food chooses more and wider entertainment to come they said.

I went to give  the Tribe $5. Doing so I walked around the place, nice clean noise lights lots of lights.

Sometimes the gamers looked like they came from Wal-Mart staff was nice, nice ,nice.

But the gamers where not going to leave here and go to the Dells or Baraboo both less then 10 MIns away why should they?

I asked and was allowed to see a Hotel room Very nice! Cost was ave for a hotel Room I think and the Staff again very nice.

After my “Donation” via a Dean Martin theme game went to see the Rendezvous this was located in a part of Baraboo  that the City/county has spent $$ to fix up make “Green” to bring in business Same consultants used that we did for the Rootworks. Nice time seeing the crafts and learning about Wisconsin Pre-1848.


After that I went to South Baraboo looks very nice away from the City. Lots of Birds and I think I saw a Golden Eagle

but no new businesses.

No the River Path has brought no $$ to Baraboo spent a lot.  Nice to see that most of the work was donated vs $$ to a crony of the Mayor, In Baraboo its a part time job as pays like that too.

The Mayor has little power to do much.

Walking around the Downtown that was very empty, I asked where was everyone?  I got told “Ho Chunk.”

Well Baraboo at least has Wildlife and no shit in the River
