That is sad Kaunisto. I'm always sad when I see places from my past disappear.

Re: Mänttä-Vilppula


Finland has some 300 municipalities. I can't keep exact count as they join all the time. Anyways...

Guess which one of them has highest tax?
Right, Mänttä-Vilppula.

Not that it matters when my income is zero.


In other news, king of Sweden was here last week; nobody noticed, a 10cm article in local paper.

Re: Mänttä-Vilppula


There's some big rearrangements going on in Finland on municipalities, health care, police etc.
Essentially everything is being combined to larger units.

Latest sign of this is that starting end of year, our police no longer has jail. So if I get drunk and disorderly this new year, they'll take me 50km away, instead of 500m.


Looks like joining with Vilppula wasn't enough, we're going to have to choose another neighbor.
Who knows what town this is in few years.

Good news - no criminals in your town! Or not enough to warrant a lock-up facility anyway.

Re: Mänttä-Vilppula


This year only 34 graduated from my school.
When I did 1997, there were 85 of us.
Doesn't look good.
(Though now one can graduate at christmas, maybe 5-10 do annually.)

Perhaps it's partially that I'm "second generation babyboomer" and we're at the bottom of wave, but this town isn't doing well.

Re: Mänttä-Vilppula


We have wolves here! Wolves have during last year taken seven cows/calves from a farm in Vilppula.
That's probably within 10km from me.

For decades we've had in Finland (and EU) arguments about wolves. They are somewhat endangered, but constantly kill farm animals and pets.
