Letter to the Editor:

So sorry to hear of Bob McDonald’s passing.

He was a great leader with the Eagle River Recreation Association (ERRA), especially with the yearly auction at the Dome

I coached him in Little League Baseball, along with his brothers, years ago.

I can remember one of the first ERRA auctions held under a big tent in Mike Obrodovich’s Ford garage, across from the old Vilas County News-Review office.

Charlie Spiess, Gib Sanborn and George Palo were some of the leaders back then.

I will never forget seeing local guide Harvey Brown dragging a live muskie from the bridge and presenting it to Col. John Fishdick, who promptly auctioned it off.

Here’s to Bobby!
