Mt Dew & Racing Fuel "Dewshine" Kills Two Kids


SPRINGFIELD, TN - Two teens are dead after mixing high octane racing fuel and Mountain Dew in a concoction called "Dewshine", then drinking it in hopes to catch a buzz...

According to WTVF, 16-year-old, Logan Stephenson, was found unresponsive in his home, and later pronounced dead on the scene. A second teen was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical but despite doctor’s best efforts, he died Monday night.

At first symptoms are similar to that of alcohol, but eventually become more serious and could include blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, blindness, coma and even death. Anywhere from 2 to 8-ounces can be deadly for adults.

Apparently this is a growing problem in Tennessee, 2 other teens have come forward admitting they drank it too according to the The Tennessean.. How far has this gone? Stop it now!

U.P. Fears Rise As Verso Corp Files For Bankruptcy

Yesterday news broke about Verso Corp., the owner of paper mills in Wisconsin Rapids and Stevens Point, had stopped paying local loggers amid rumors that it was on the verge of bankruptcy. Today those rumors became true after Verso Corp filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
Verso President and Chief Executive David J. Paterson said in a news release the company has worked "to develop a restructuring plan to eliminate $2.4 billion of our outstanding debt" and exit bankruptcy "in a short time frame."

There is a fear of what this might mean for local mills located in Quinessec and Escanaba, Michigan. Many have said there is nothing to worry about locally, but others said local U.P. loggers haven't been paid for wood delivered.

Only time will tell if this "restructuring" works and people keep the jobs they desperately need in these areas where jobs are rare. 

For those of you in the stock market, you might be interested to see Verso Stock Has Plunged to just a penny per share! Buy Now?
 
Verso spokeswoman Kathi Rowzie said those loggers who have not been paid will have an opportunity to file claims to be compensated as part of the bankruptcy proceedings. 
 
Bryce made a comment on my facebook page that said, "We stopped hauling to escanaba and quinessec mills a few weeks ago due to non payment for wood already delivered. Very bad thing for the logging industry and even our local economy. Anxious to see the outcome for any businesses associated and/or affiliated with Verso."


WISCONSIN RAPIDS - Verso Corp., the owner of paper mills in Wisconsin Rapids and Stevens Point, has stopped paying local loggers amid rumors that it is on the verge of bankruptcy.

The Eben Ice Caves in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (Video)

When was the last time you 
visited the EBEN ICE CAVES 
in Michigan's Upper Peninsula? 


Not too far off of Highway 41, down a snow covered road near Eben Junction you'll find a parking lot right in front of someones house in the middle of a huge field. There is a line of portable toilets for those in need, they also have a concession stand set up for a quick snack before/after your long hike. 


One new item they have that you will want are ICE CLEATS for just $7 ($13 deposit that you'll get back). They are well worth it and after watching people who didn't get them, you'll know why.. Also prepare yourself for a long hike with lots of hills along the way, you may even wind up with the wrong end up. 

 Stay on the packed path..


 Single file, once you go knee deep you'll know..

Mostly downhill on the way there..
Some beautiful winter views to be seen...

 Remember the cleats? You'll be happy by now!

After almost a mile hike, you made it!!
