Tony Beets "The Viking" 's own boat Beets Dredge 1 , part of the Viking Fleet , is a t year old floating industrial bucket dredge , built in When it became operational, it is the only currently operating industrial gold bucket dredge in North America. The dredge has no rudder, nor propulsion engine, and is maneuvered with the dredge chain, and dredge tractors on dry land to which it is tied to.
The dredge was idled when gold prices fell. Then in the s gold went up, and the dredge was refurbished, and run until , when gold dropped again, and was not used until Tony Beets bought it. At the time Tony bought it, it had not run in 27 years. The dredge's trommel was originally installed before WWII.
Before Tony bought it, the bucket chain had not been moved for 30 years, and rusted together. Tony intends to have the dredge up and running for end of season 5 or season 6. It is to be disassembled and moved to a different location. It should be able to run a 7 or 8 month season , while most miners run only 5-month seasons in the Klondike. The dredge is located at Clear Creek, mi, a 3-hr drive, from Tony's primary claim, Paradise Hill claim , where he wants to move it.
Tony Beets buys dredge just before season 5. He proceeds to disassemble the dredge during season 5, hoping to have it up and running at the end of season 5, or the start of season 6. The dredge is located at Clear Creek at the beginning of season 5, and is to be moved to the Paradise Hill Claim to start dredging there.
It took 11 weeks to disassemble and move the dredge to Paradise Hill claim , Tony's mine, at the halfway point of the mining season. He then moves all the parts to the Eureka Creek claim to reassemble. Disassembly took 3 months, 4 weeks longer than Tony had planned for. Hoffman Crew Digs Deeper.

In their view they are one and the same. Some of us believe in separation of church and state. I myself profoundly believe in separation of church and state. But those who joined the Klan did not share that worldview. To them, religion, politics, government and patriotism were all deeply entwined. These are the self-professed 'us' of the Ku Klux Klan," Madison said.
It's a horrible notion that contradicts everything I know about American ideals, but a large number of Hoosiers in the s signed up for it. The Klan was not a headless snake, though. At the top was Grand Dragon D. Stephenson, who had risen to prominence from the Evansville "Klavern" to eventually run the largest Klan organization in the country.
Stephenson, according to Madison, was just the right person to capitalize on the anti-Catholic, anti-immigrant sentiment of his day. He had a bombastic, authoritarian, 'I am the law' sort of style, and he built a very successful business organization, which is what the Klan was.
He certainly did not in his private life hold in high regard the values that Hoosiers across the state who were members of the Klan did. According to another IU historian, Professor Allen Safianow, the Klan of the s was a magnet for Hoosiers with political aspirations.
The Klan involved itself in elections, and through this they were able to exert a fair amount of influence, to the point where in some communities like Kokomo it's reported that you really had to join the Klan to have a shot at a political appointment. Whether the Klan exerted political influence because its membership grew large, or whether its membership grew because of its political influence is a chicken-or-egg question, Safianow said.
But either way, Indiana's Klan by the mids could claim politicians ranging from local officeholders all the way up to Governor Edward L. Jackson, along with the majority of both houses of the General Assembly. Though Stephenson first ran for office in Indiana as a Democrat, the Klan eventually aligned itself with the Republican Party, which controlled most of the state at the time. They made a list of candidates, and a candidate was approved or not approved by the Ku Klux Klan.
Democrats tended not to get the approval of the Ku Klux Klan. Some stood up, most stayed silent out of fear of alienating their voters. Perhaps even more than its actual political power, Madison said the fear the Klan was able to induce allowed it intimidate its opposition into silence.
This was part of D. Stephenson's salesmanship. He had a way of striking fear," Madison said. But the other was that people feared what their neighbors would think of them if they didn't join the Klan. That they weren't percent American. If you owned a men's clothing store on Washington Street in Indianapolis, you might want to join the Klan just to make sure you don't lose customers.
Fortunately for the Klan's political opponents, fractures in the organization blunted its effectiveness when it came down to the actual business of governance. Stephenson and the other with the governor," Safianow said. Madison agreed, saying the Klan's only major legislative accomplishment was passing the so-called "Bone-Dry Law," which enhanced penalties for possession of alcohol during Prohibition.
Before the Klan had a second attempt, it had fallen into disgrace following Stephenson's conviction for the rape and murder of Oberholtzer. In recent years, the Klan has made attempts at outreach in the state of Indiana — none generating any noticeable results.
Aside from the aforementioned Madison rally in September, various Klan groups have passed out recruitment fliers in Fishers, Beech Grove and elsewhere, hoping to spread their message. Both Safianow and Madison say they don't see the Klan — an openly racist organization decked out in contrived mysticism, run by officers called "cyclops" and "wizard" — making a true resurgence in the modern era.
Many of them are so unstable they almost deserve our pity. I'm doubtful that an organization of this sort could ever reappear in power in Indiana. But there are still elements of this that are alive and well in Indiana. Those elements have found themselves in the spotlight recently with the rise of the so-called "alt-right" — a collection of racist, white nationalist and often anti-government forces who oppose what they see as globalization's negative effects on the U. Many in that camp, including white nationalist leader Richard Spencer who performed the Nazi salute while shouting "Hail Trump" at a recent convention of white nationalists in Washington, D.
Bannon's selection drew criticism from the left and right, with Republican strategist John Weaver tweeting that, "The racist, fascist extreme right is represented footsteps from the Oval Office. Anti-hate groups protest Breitbart editor's position in White House Trump makes controversial pick for senior aide White nationalists may find a home under Trump presidency. Safianow says he sees parallels between modern white nationalist movements and the sentiments that led to the rise of the Klan.
We have sort of the same quandary today. People look at Donald Trump's victory, and some wonder how much of this is due to racism or prejudice? It's hard to tell. In the '20s, the Klan was openly nativist, anti-Catholic, white supremacist, and so the ideology was clear.
But that doesn't necessarily mean that everyone joined the Klan for that reason. The Klan had other things on its agenda. It supported Prohibition and opposed gambling. It supposedly opposed corruption.
One could argue, perhaps, that in the '20s, association with an organization that was racist and nativist wasn't a deal breaker the way it might be today. Madison echoed similar thoughts. And again, it's us vs. Whether them is African-Americans or Islamic people," Madison said. You create people who are not like me. Who are different. And they'll show you how and why they are different, and then they'll go from there to show you why they are a direct threat to you and your family.

Honey Halfwitch. One narrative, the stereotypical one, might have it so. But locked away in the buried history of the British Isles are other, far richer and more nuanced, stories; and these hidden tales paint a picture very different from the ferocious pillagers of popular repute.
In this book, Eleanor Parker unlocks secrets that point to more complex motivations within the marauding army that in the late-9th century voyaged to the shores of eastern England in its sleek, dragon-prowed longships. Exploring legends from forgotten medieval texts, and across the varied Anglo-Saxon regions, she depicts Vikings who came not just to raid but also to settle personal feuds, intervene in English politics and find a place to call home. Each myth shows how the legacy of the newcomers can.
