    Celebrated know-something Ralph Waldo Emerson once famously declared that, if you build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to your door.

    What Evergreen residents Art and Sharon Onweller invented isn’t a mousetrap, exactly, but it’s a mighty step forward in the art of confounding rodents, and the nautical world has definitely begun to take notice.
