Reflections on Fishing

He sat alone, in the wilderness solitude that afternoon. The only sounds - the singing of the lake and beating of his heart as he fished and waited. There would be no fish that afternoon - but then he did not always fish for the fish - but sometimes for the memories. Photo by Pete Pastika.

Tomahawk still closed,others re-open

The Superior National Forest lifted the temporary closure of a twelve-mile section of The Grade Road (Forest Road 170) on the Tofte Ranger District between the Sawbill Trail and Wanless in Cook and Lake Counties, MN.

Forest managers closed this and some other sections of Forest Roads on November 29, 2017 due to the thick layer of ice that had created an extreme hazard for traffic in those areas.

While road conditions have improved in some areas, all motorists are urged to continue to use care when driving on Forest Roads and to be aware that many Forest Roads are not plowed to remove snow in the winter.

Twins coming to Ely Jan. 25

The Minnesota Twins are making a habit of coming to Ely.
Once again, the Major League Baseball team will make Ely a stop on their annual winter caravan. Team officials announced Thursday that a contingent will be in town on Thursday, Jan. 25.
The time, nature and location of the event are all still to be determined, but broadcaster Dick Bremer will be joined by outfielder Eddie Rosario and pitcher Jose Berrios.
Previous Twins’ events have included a lunch, program and a chance for photos and autographs with the players, as well as a raffle for autographed items.
The Twins’ visit has become somewhat of a winter tradition in Ely. This marks the 10th time since 2004 that the caravan will stop in Ely.
In all, the 2018 Twins Winter Caravan includes stops in more than 50 communities across the upper Midwest from Jan. 15-25.
