The 18th Amendment, which outlawed the manufacturing and selling of liquor, created a profitable, dangerous business opportunity for moonshiners and bootleggers on the other side of the law.

Three states – Iowa, Kansas and Maine — were ahead of the vountry on Prohibition.  In fact, Iowa had statewide prohibition in 1916, four years before the national policy in 1920.

William “Bill” H. Howe

The soul and spirit of William “Bill” Henry Howe departed his earthly body, at his home, on Friday, July 22, 2022, with his late life companion and family by his side. Bill was extremely active at the age of 99 until a fall resulting in a concussion and complications hastened his passing. Bill set a personal goal of reaching 100 years of age and he had a fair chance at it, if not for his fall.

The family is holding a private graveside service in the Evergreen Cemetery. Military honors will be accorded by the Prairie du Chien Honor Guard. A Celebration of Life is planned for Thursday, from 4 to 7 p.m. at The Barn Restaurant in Prairie du Chien.
