MI Heritage Awardee Dave Kober's newsletter and shop

Ice fishing decoy carver and 1990 Michigan Heritage Award winner Dave Kober writes the MSU Museum Michigan Traditional Arts Program staff to say he has launched a newsletter (The_Wooden_Fish_Gallery@mail.vresp.com): "Howdy Folks! Just a quick note to let you know that my shop is open for the season! Just 10 miles south of Cadillac, MI, on M115, you can't miss us - just keep an eye open for the BIG fish out front (:  Stop by, stay for a while and see what's new this year. I've been busy this past winter so there's plenty to choose from - but come early while the pick of the catch are still available!  Life has been a wee bit busy since a great article appeared in Field and Stream Magazine!
