Big year at Ely hospital; EBCH finishes in the black; new CEO out to enhance services

by Tom Coombe
It’s been a busy and fruitful year at Ely-Bloomenson Community Hospital, and all signs indicate that things aren’t about to slow down.
The hospital posted operating income of over $568,000 in the fiscal year that ended in September, and new administrator Michael Coyle said Monday that additional services, new branding and marketing and perhaps an overhaul to the hospital campus are on the way.
Coyle, who succeeded longtime chief executive officer John Fossum earlier this year, was brimming with enthusiasm Monday, as hospital shareholders gathered for the annual meeting of Ely-Bloomenson’s umbrella organization- the Ely Health and Hospital Foudation.
A new logo was unveiled and Coyle outlined an array of plans for 2019 that address everything from hospital facilities to enhancements to an already growing surgical department.

Status of Cloquet Line condition discussed by Fall Lake officials

by Nancy McReady
There was lengthy discussion about the upcoming St. Louis County Planning meeting scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 13 at 10:30 a.m. at the public works building in Virginia. The meeting will focus on whether or not to give the Will Steger Wilderness Center non-profit status.
Although not in Fall Lake Township, Supervisor Mary Tome said her concern was the increased traffic that would be on the Cloquet Line leading up to Steger’s. Some comments made were that Steger should contribute to the upgrading of the road before given non-profit status.
Fall Lake Township maintains the Cloquet Line to Browns Lake Road. Beyond Browns Lake Road, the road is a Forest Service road that is not maintained.
The DNR did do some road improvements a few years ago as there are DNR landings on Cedar Lake and Low Lake.

Mary (Delak) Klun, 90, dies

Mary Klun was born on June 2, 1928 in Ely, Minnesota to Mary and Frank Delak. She married Ed Klun on May 13, 1950 and they spent 46 happy years together. She enjoyed waitressing at Vertin’s restaurant for many years and ran the Ely Surplus store with Ed until they retired. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to everyone that she cared about, putting everyone she loved ahead of herself. She cared for Ed after he was diagnosed with cancer and then spent over 16 years caring for Evan and Carrie’s family. Her favorite pastime was ironing, even our jeans had to have a sharp crease and the sheets were always pressed. She left us on December, 7, 2018 after a short illness.
She lived right up until the end with a smile on her face and a kind word to all. We are honored and privileged to have had her in our lives for over 90 years.
