I think a few church sessions would also benefit Rhonda Wiese. For what Rhonda did is not just criminal, it is also a sin. That is correct. Stealing is a sin! And it says right plainly in the Ten Commandments! Additionally, it is also known that Rhonda has a massive history of spreading very hurtful and slanderous gossip around about other people. Which is also very bad and therefore sinful. For those who are wondering, here are the original Ten Commandments given by God to Moses.

1. You shall have no gods but me.

2. You shall not make statues, pictures, or idols of gods, nor shall you pray to any other god but me.

3. You shall not use the Lord's name in vain.

4. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.

5. Honor your mother and father.

6. You shall not commit murder.

7. You shall not commit adultery.

8. You shall not steal.

9. You shall not lie.

10. You shall not envy/covet your neighbor or desire anything that belongs to him.

And in fact, when Jesus came to Earth, Jesus even left us another commandment, which is as follows;

Love one another, as I have loved you.

Spreading nasty gossip and slander around is Not loving other people!

Looks like no chance at all of any "Mardi Gras Junior" or even "Fantasy Fest Junior" events on Lake Alice this year or anytime soon!

First she gossips, driving her customers away, then she steals from the Tavern league, and this time she gets busted. And indeed, the charges are heavy, and from what I have read, she could be facing up to 5 to 10 years in prison. Even worse still, rumors indicate that Pine Pointe Resort may be in foreclosure.

It may likely be at least 2 to 3 years before the Pontoon Poker Run even resumes at all, depending on if the future new owner or owners (if the resort does get sold) decide to continue the tradition.
Concerned for Rhonda too

Please take a moment to think about how bad it must have been for her to betray friends and family that way. The Rhonda I knew years ago would not have done something like this as she knew first hand from someone stealing from her own father what hurt and anger it could bring. Something pushed her to this, and whatever that was, she is going to be living with the fall out for years, even though she will most likely NOT have any jail time.(people who steal a whole lot more dont get jail time) Everybody makes poor decisions sooner or later, Rhonda will get it together and grow from this experience. And perhaps it was being pushed to have all those Lake Alice activities and do them well that caused her to need the extra money so as to not dissapoint everybody when she could no longer afford it honestly. If the property is in foreclosure its becasue her money is gone as well, did you think of that? There have been lots of failed businesses across the nation; its double tough when your business is tied to your home and your small community and on top of trying to take care of your own you are doing an EXTRA job where temptations of cash without safeguards is a temptation staring you in the face daily. She stole over a long enough period you have to wonder more at the organization that didnt have double checks in place to prevent this kind of thing.

Don't take it personal, dude, but the Northern USA, especially the Frost Belt region, is a totally inappropriate place for nudity, women walking around with their boobs hanging out, guys taking pictures holding bare boobs, and even partying/dancing. Just as the saying says "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas", there are more widespread sayings. The fact is, what goes on in Key West stays in Key West. What goes on in New Orleans stays in New Orleans. What goes on in Florida stays in Florida. Same thing with regions; what goes on in the American Sun Belt region stays in the American Sun Belt region and stays out of the northern USA, especially the Frost Belt region. Wisconsin is a Frost Belt state, sir. And in fact, the Frost Belt covers most to all of the following states; Wisconsin, Illinois, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

P.S. Iowa and Minnesota are also Frost Belt states!

Are you totally off topic or what? Dude?
Who said anything about nudity? Besides the charges of being un-godly by gossiping (and its not gossip if its not deliberately to hurt the other person - its just TALKING) Preacher above must have had comments hit a little too close to home and that always smarts the ego. You appear to need a place to regurgitate facts. Too bad they have no bearing on the topic unless you think possibly seeing other women dancing and showing boobies in anyway excuses her from stealing? At least you didnt use this forum for a personal attackby throwing out rumors.

Well, it has in fact been rumored that someone advertising about the Pontoon Poker run on this site was trying to make it into a sort of "junior version" of Mardi Gras in New Orleans, if not the Key West Fantasy Fest. Unfortunately, what he needs to realize is that both New Orleans and Key West are Sun Belt cities, and Tomahawk, Wisconsin is a Frost Belt city. And there are many numerous things that are permissable in the Sun Belt that are totally inappropriate in the Frost Belt. Women showing their boobs is one of those things. Even social dancing, especially with people not part of one's immediate clique, is heavily frowned upon in the Frost Belt.

Dear Northerner,
I'm worried about your preoccupation with what people are perhaps maybe going to do in some other location; it almost sounds like that was the type of behavior you were looking forward to, anticipating and hoping for!
