Onalaska (Wis.)

From Sawmills to Sunfish

Onalaska is a city in La Crosse County, Wisconsin. Onalaska is built on a slightly elevated ridge above the Black River. Natural areas include both river bottom land and high, heavily wooded, scenic bluffs. A man-made reservoir at the city's western edge is known as Lake Onalaska. Onalaska is known as "The Sunfish Capital of the World." The original village (now city) was platted by Thomas G. Rowe (New York) and John C. Laird (Pennsylvania) in 1851. In its early days, lumbering and related industries served as a basis for its economy. The name for the city comes from the poem, "The Pleasures of Hope", by the Scottish poet Thomas Campbell. The original spelling of the name in Campbell's poem was "Oonalaska" (an Aleutian island and fishing village).

The Case of the Greedy Goat is the seventh story in the Private Investigators Club series. If you have read the introductions to the other stories in the series, you will appreciate the fact that the young detectives like solving mysteries. The story starts with Tommy reporting that he has received an invitation for the club members to have a holiday at Mr. J’s cottage in return for helping him open it for the summer. With some difficulty he leads them through the formal procedures to accept the invitation. They are driven to Chaffey’s Lock and taken by boat to a remote cottage on Scott Island. While working on the task of getting the water system working, their cell phones mysteriously disappear. Mr. J suspects the Greedy Goat has eaten them. The story continues as the detectives search for their phones, assist with some difficult maintenance tasks and have a few adventures. They fear that Mr. J has flipped and try, unsuccessfully, to escape. Luckily, it all works out in the end. The stories in the Private Investigators Club series are “readers” for students of age eight or older. People of any age who are learning English as a Second Language may find them entertaining and educational. This story explains the Canadian obsession with lakes and cottages, providing insight into some of the joys and frustrations of owning a cottage. After each chapter, there is a list of definitions of those words used for the first time and a lesson that explores the situation in the chapter. Some questions are suitable discussion topics, others require using the Internet. Answers are provided so you can determine whether or not you really understand what is going on. There are many jokes or humorous situations in the story. Because some readers will not get the joke, a chapter titled “Humor Explained” identifies what the author is trying to do with the amusing sections.
