Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Written for Dunn County News May 12, 2013
Unwanted hair growth can be the result of heredity or hormonal levels, an underlying medical condition or even some prescription drugs — but what do you do about it?
Some may chose to attempt to temporarily address the problem by themselves at home, but those looking for a safe and professional option will want to contact Julie Mathews of Timberline Electrolysis & Body Waxing. Mathews has had a successful practice in Ellsworth for five years. While wanting to grow her business, she recently relocated to downtown Menomonie, where she has an office located in the lower level of Parrot Bay Tanning at 719 South Broadway. (more…)

In all of the city of Menomonie there is one business that year round, makes great use of having Lake Menomin in the center of our town – The Waterfront Bar & Grill in Downtown Menomonie. During the winter months when the lake is a frozen field, as some have mistaken it to be, groups sign up to participate in Ice Golf, Ice Kickball, Ice Softball, Ice Hockey and even Mountain Biking on the lake. It sure brings a smile to your face when you walk, run or drive along the lake bank and notice the large mass of people having a great deal of fun down below. It’s like the equivalent of an adult recess breaking up the cold season. In the warmer months, one can dock their boat down below and climb the steps to enjoy lunch or dinner on the deck that doubles the size of the seating area during the summer months. On the Fourth of July, many find it to be the hot spot to be during the evening hours when the annual FreedomFest fireworks show over the lake. (more…)
