Regals have through August

By Correne Martin

A Crawford County Circuit Court judge released an order last week, modifying the May 22 arbitration decision that said Regal Marine Group had until June 21 to remove its property from the marina premises in Prairie du Chien, and giving the family more time to relocate its belongings.

The Regals now have until Aug. 21—90 days after the arbitration order—to remove personal property, and until Aug. 31 to take down the buildings on the land. Any property deemed abandoned after those dates would become property of the city of Prairie du Chien, according to judge Craig Day.

The Regal family did not contest the arbitration panel’s decision to terminate the lease between themselves and the city; however, all along, they’ve vocalized that the original 30-day timeline to vacate the premises was unreasonable.

“Where are the kayaks?” That’s the question Sally Marshall had when she moved to the area years ago. 

Now, Marshall helps bring to the community the Great River Paddlers club, an organization set up, according to her, “to encourage paddle sport as recreational sport in the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers.” 

The kayak owners, all 50 members, enjoy leisure paddling through June to August. There is no competitiveness, just “enjoying the beauty of the river,” said Marshall. It’s an opportunity to take part in one of the few silent sports that also allows for a tremendous upper body workout.

With interests in politics, current events and Wisconsin sports, along with having been involved in a variety of activities, she was on the path to great achievements from the start.
