Hacks for Remembering Hacks

Did you know that ketchup can clean copper and that mustard can be used as an exfoliating face mask? Also, they’re both really good on hot dogs.
And did you know that you can keep carryout pizza warm on the way home by setting it on the passenger seat and turning on the seat warmer? If you have a passenger and they resent having to sit in the backseat just tell them the pizza called shotgun.
These are all valuable tips I learned in an online article called 200 Hacks to Make Life Easier. If you waste as much time online as I do, you’ve noticed that what we once called “tips” or “hints from Heloise” are now called hacks. And there are a lot of them. There are life hacks, travel hacks, cooking hacks and personal finance hacks. There are car maintenance hacks, ballroom dancing hacks and rock climbing hacks. And there are hacks to burgle proof your home, hacks to prevent your computer from being hacked and writing hacks to keep you from being a hack.

Goodbye winter! The ice is out (finally) and summer is on its way (finally)

White Iron Beach Resort

The news arrived Tuesday and it was welcome: finally, Shagawa Lake was open.
But the winner of the Ely Echo’s annual Ice Out contest wasn’t the only one happy.
Those planning to wet a line this weekend or counting on the arrival of visiting anglers were joined by others with smiles on their faces.
After a long, cold and snow-filled winter, and an April that had a never-ending combination of more cold, and more snow, the open waters were more than just a sign that spring hard arrived.
It was much more symbolic than that.
We’d like to think it was a sign of better things to come.
Winter seemed to hang on for dear life in the Ely area, and even the most optimistic among us were beaten down in April.
Even those who love winter have to admit that enough was enough.
An open Shagawa Lake, and the sunny skies and warm temperatures that have finally arrived in Ely, are the portent of things to come.

Ely girls take second at Aurora

by Tom Coombe
Ely’s high school girls track team piled up points in numerous events, but field events remained their strength Tuesday at Aurora.
The Timberwolves were second among four teams at a meet hosted by Mesabi East, but the Wolves had two of the top-three places in two field events and top-three outings in three others.
Senior Ande Visser won the discus with a personal record throw and was second in the shot put, while her younger sister Sarah was second in the triple jump and third in the long jump.
Ely’s Kellen Thomas, Natasha Fulkrod and Audrey Thomas also had top-three finishes in field events.
The Ely lineup had strong contributions all around for the day, with ninth-graders Raymus Cavalier and Anna Dunn giving the Wolves a one-two showing in the 3,200 meter run.
In the hurdles, senior Lauren Olson (300) and junior Morgan McClelland (100) had runner-up showings and Ely had four second-place relays.

VCC’s Roden player of week

The Vermilion Ironwomen’s season came to an end over the weekend, but one of its top players was lauded by the Minnesota Community Athletic Conference.
Centerfielder Riley Roden was named MCAC North Division Player of the Week for her efforts.
The freshman from Monticello, who was one of the state’s top hitters all sesason long, went a sizzling 12-for-22 for the week with a .545 batting average.
Roden’s tear included two home runs, four doubles, 10 runs scored and 10 runs batted in. She added three stolen bases for good measure.
To top it off, Roden had a pair of victories in the pitcher’s circle as VCC closed out its season with a record of 7-13 in the division, and 7-16 overall.
Roden got the pitching victory May 5 in Ely, as Vermilion downed Hibbing 8-7 in the opening game of a division twinbill, which turned out to be the team’s only home outing of the season.
