“Southeastern Minnesota Statues Part of Nation’s First Underwater Veterans Memorial”

August 14 2019

“On August 4th, Shelly and David Speedling were in Clearwater, Florida for the dedication of the Circle of Heroes. The husband and wife team own SVJ Creative Designs – a statuary.

‘To see them cut the ribbon and the different veterans that went down to see the statues down there and to ask to be a part of it is very honoring,’ said David.

The Circle of Heroes is America’s first underwater veterans memorial. 12 statues are sunk in the ocean, roughly 10 miles off the shore of Clearwater. It’s a therapeutic dive site for disabled veterans and marine life will gradually attach to it, creating an artificial reef. The plaques of the statues will be regularly scrubbed to remain readable, but marine life will be allowed to grow on the statues.

Three of the 12 statues were made by SVJ Creative Designs: a kneeling soldier with a battlefield cross, a female Iraq Freedom Fighter, and a Southeast Asia war statue. Next year, the Circle of Heroes is adding 12 more statues to complete a 100-foot circle. Three more of SVJ Creative Design’s statues will go to Florida: a World War I statue, a World War 2 statue, and a custom Coast Guard statue…”

Doug went on to say, “We are extremely fortunate to have such a great group of leaders and employees who help to give back to the communities that support us every day. It takes great people to build amazing connections like we have and we look forward to building even more in the future of Dick’s Fresh Market.

Press Release -Wabasha Readies for Weekend of FLW Youth Bass-Fishing Tournaments

YETI FLW College Fishing tournament set for Friday, Bass Pro Shops FLW High School Open tournament to follow Saturday

WABASHA, Minn. (July 9, 2019) – Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) is set to visit Wabasha next week, July 19-20, with the YETI FLW College Fishing tournament at the Mississippi River presented by Evinrude and the Bass Pro Shops FLW High School Fishing Open at the Mississippi River presented by Evinrude. The tournaments, hosted by the Wabasha-Kellogg Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention Visitors Bureau, will showcase some of the top young anglers from across the region competing for cash and prizes and angling for their chance to advance to the FLW College Fishing National Championship and High School Fishing National Championship events.

“The river has been crazy high – we’ve had a lot of tournaments cancelled up here – but it’s stabilizing a bit and the fishing is going to be really, really good for the young anglers,” said Yamamoto Baits pro Tom Monsoor of La Crosse, Wisconsin, who has 26 top-10 finishes on the Mississippi River in FLW competition. “The largemouth are biting and the smallies are biting good, too. We’re going to see a lot of mixed bags because everything is biting good right now.”

Monsoor predicted that frogs, topwater baits and jigs would be the key baits for most tournament competitors, and that finding clear water would be the key.

“If they don’t find clear water, they’ll be hurting,” the 16-year FLW Tour veteran said
