Closing Observational Tower in State Park Ironically Symbolic for Shortsighted Republicans.

Scott Walker’s decision to cut all public funding for our state parks is already paying dividends for conservative voters everywhere who don’t want to pay for someone else’s vacation. And with the self-imposed deficit due to overzealous tax cuts, we’re just going to have to do without. Walker did the same thing when he was Milwaukee County executive. Let the neglect begin...:
The observation tower located in Peninsula State Park, known as Eagle Tower, will be closed immediately because of public safety concerns related to structural deficiency issues according to Kelli Bruns, park superintendent.

The 75-foot tall tower offers extraordinary views of Green Bay and even the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It stands 225 feet above the water. Considered Wisconsin's most complete park, Peninsula offers 468 campsites, three group camps, a summer theater, an 18-hole golf course, sand beach, bike trails, a lighthouse and 8 miles of Door County shoreline.
