“Footloose” begins Nov. 10 at school

Ely students are cutting loose and busting moves all over the stage, as they prepare for this year’s musical, “Footloose.” They have been working for seven weeks on their singing, their acting and their footwork. This musical exudes energy and anyone who attends will feel it.
In the play, the main character and his mother (Emma Terwilliger), starting a new life, move from the big city of Chicago to Beaumont, Texas. The culture shock is enough to ruin Ren’s (played by Blaise Lah) life.
He learns that this town has outlawed dancing because of a tragic accident. Reverend Shaw Moore played by Jasiah Wigdahl) is the de facto mayor and enforcer of the “No-dancing” law. In doing so he alienates his daughter Ariel (Erika Mattson) and his wife Vi (Danielle Krostue).
Ariel rebels and finds Ren quite attractive. Vi retreats, but by the end finds her voice.

Watercraft inspections to benefit lakes with $93,000 in grants

Funding support of $33,000 from the Initiative Foundation, will aid in a two-year project to further improve the efficiency of boat inspection work at 17 Lake Vermilion and 5 Burntside Lake public accesses.
Watercraft inspections at Vermilion and Burntside are conducted by North St Louis Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) in partnership with the Vermilion Lake Association and the Burntside Lake Association. All three organizations are involved in this pilot project.
“While boat inspections are the most effective means we have to prevent new AIS infestations, they are also labor intensive and our most expensive AIS undertaking,” said Jeff Lovgren, AIS program leader at Lake Vermilion. “Our partnership has an obligation to become even more efficient every year, and we’re pleased to receive a grant to pilot some innovative ideas to make that happen.”
