Regal Marina family shares its side of the story


The Regal family—Jesse, Josh, Sue and Dennis Jr.—feel they have been personally wronged by the city of Prairie du Chien over how they’ve run the marina for over 33 years. Arbitration is presently underway between both parties. (Photos by Correne Martin)

It’s business as usual this boating season at Regal Marina. At least, it’s mostly as usual, considering electricity to the docks was disconnected by the city of Prairie du Chien, upon state recommendation, one year ago in May and has not been restored. (Boaters can use on board generators and the buildings still have power for service needs.)

It’s well-known in Prairie du Chien area communities that the Regal family and the city government have been at odds for years. Only in the last few years have their disagreements become news. In January, the contention turned into a legal battle.

The generations of Regals who have stake in the marina business have remained quiet about their side of the story—until now. The family requested an opportunity to tell their story and, alongside a half-dozen loyal boaters, April 5, they sat down to do so.

Here a ‘neigh,’ there a ‘neigh’ for Easter

Avery Kilburg was one of many young girls and boys who enjoyed pony rides at the Children’s Ranch’s annual Easter Party Saturday. In addition to the glory of sitting atop the majestic animals, the youngsters petted, brushed and fed some of the horses, colored Easter eggs and crafts and visited with the Easter bunny.

2016 walleye 'young of year' numbers low, but big 2015 will help maintain population

By Ted Pennekamp

 

Traditionally, as the weather warms up, more and more anglers take to their area waters to test their skills and try their luck. Each year is a bit different, but Mississippi River anglers in Pools 9 and 10 should expect a healthy fishery in 2017 despite relatively low numbers of certain species netted by DNR electrofishing crews this past fall.
