When you finish your Thanksgiving meal you might ask, 'why did I eat so much?', but a state Farm Bureau spokesperson says the cost shouldn't give you additional pain.
Amy Eckelberg says they survey 12 items usually thought of on a traditional Thanksgiving table. A 16 pound turkey costs about a dollar more than last year. Pumpkin pie mix is up about 35 cents, and sweet potatoes are up 50 cents, but rolls are down 25 cents and a relish tray costs about as much as last year, among other items.
The Lac Courte Oreilles Harvest Camp is celebrating a feast day Thursday.
The camp formed in the spring of this year in response to a proposed iron mine in the Penokee Hills.
Five people are spending the winter at the camp…which has already seen more than a foot of snow. Spokesman Paul DeMain says the camp has visitors every day, and several dozen people could attend the feast.
