      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Just to let others know. We ate breakfast in the diner in Orr on Wed. on our way up. On Sunday on our way back it had been seized by the IRS. I really hope it gets opened back up. It has always been a stop on our route up to Crane.

Is that "The Dam" restaurant your talking about? I've eaten there a few times for breakfast and dinner always was good food.

From the Timber Jay:

Feds close Pattenn's Café in Orr

By Tom Klein

Pattenn’s Café, one of the fixtures of Orr’s business district, has been closed and the property seized by the U.S. government for non-payment of internal revenue taxes.

Officials closed the restaurant on Wednesday and installed new locks on the business, which is housed in the old Orr train depot.

Restaurant staff reached by phone on Wednesday confirmed that the restaurant was closed, but declined further comment.

According to the St. Louis County Recorder’s Office, the federal government had two liens against the restaurant dating back to 1989. The first lien was for $17,731 on April 6, 1989, and the second was for $2,900 on Sept. 13, 1989. The records didn’t indicate any payment toward the liens or interest charged for non-payment of the liens.

Calls to the regional Internal Revenue Service office in Duluth were not returned by presstime.

Pattenn’s has been in the Pattenn family for generations since Wayne and Mryna Pattenn bought the restaurant from Harry Seccombe. Seccombe started the café in 1922 in what had previously been Billy Orr’s Saloon.

The only other interruption in over 70 years of service came in 1994 when a fire destroyed Pattenn’s Café and three other businesses in Orr. The café reopened four months later in a former railroad depot.

The restaurant is a popular spot for local residents to gather for coffee and talk in the mornings. The café was famous as the “Home of the Big Doughnut.”

The restaurant’s closure follows the sale of the Orr Café, which is being converted into a real estate office, leaving the area with few dining choices. To help fill the gap, two area businesses began offering breakfast buffets this week. Pelican Bay Foods offers its breakfast buffet from 6 to 10:30 a.m. while The Dam serves its breakfast buffet from 5 to 11 a.m.

“We’re going to wait and see what happens with Pattenn’s,” said Brian “Otis” Wardas, who with his wife Charlene owns The Dam. If the breakfast buffets continue beyond a week, Wardas is contemplating adding a breakfast menu at The Dam restaurant, which traditionally has been open for lunches and suppers.

Should Pattenn’s fail to reopen, the lack of dining establishments in Orr could be troublesome this summer. In addition to tourist trade, the city is preparing to celebrate its centennial and an All-Class Reunion and will host a Little League tournament in July.

Stopped by Pattens on June 2nd- enjoyed the visit. June 9th it was closed! What a huge disappointment for us! If anyone associated with Patten's reads this forum, please let us know what is going on. If they would like a financial partner, maybe I can help in some way.
