Sir G’s Italian Restaurant has been sold. The new owners are Dan and Heidi Peace. Dan has been fishing here for the past eight years and, like a lot of people, he fell in love with Ely.
After introducing Heidi to this area, they decided it would be a great place to raise their two and a half year old year old daughter Jade.
Dan is a business owner in Minneapolis and Heidi is a restaurant manager. With that winning combination, it only made sense to buy Sir G’s and become a part of the Ely community. The Peaces plan to keep the same great recipes and use the same quality ingredients that Sir G’s is known for.
The previous owners, Jim and Marie Buchner, invite you to stop in and help welcome them to Ely.

Superior National Forest Managers Announce Changes in National Recreation Reservation System and BWCAW Permit Reservation Process

Superior National Forest Managers Announce Changes in National Recreation Reservation System
and BWCAW Permit Reservation Process

Duluth, MN (September 28, 2018) – Beginning in 2019, visitors will see some changes in the National Recreation Reservation System which includes the permitting process for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). These changes address privacy, security, financial, and program requirements of the new, nation-wide recreation.gov website launching on October 1, 2018.

The new platform has stronger security controls, better protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and increased fraud protection. Recreation.gov will no longer store credit card information.

Beginning in 2019, the $10.00 reservation fee is changing to $6.00 for every quota permit. That means whether you reserve a permit ahead of time or purchase a ‘walk-in’ permit, the fee will be $6.00. This includes Day Use Motor permits.
