Dog obedience class for owners and their dogs

Ely Community Education’s Dog Obedience class will graduate dogs next week from both the beginners and the advanced classes. Many dogs dramatically improved their behavior, and all dogs improved their basic skills.
The beginning classes covered basic command skills such as sit, down, heel, come when called, and stay. Dogs were able to mix with many other dogs.
The class was made up of young dogs to a six-year-old dog. Students worked on communication with their dogs. Learning to ask their dog clearly and rewarding their dog with praise, a treat and love.
Community Education usually has two beginning classes, but this year they had one class meet Monday night and the other Tuesday night. This really helped with students’ busy schedules.
The advanced class has 16 dogs and handlers participating.

LETTER: …additionally, the theater’s policy is to not discriminate against any individuals, groups or organizations that wish to rent the space

To the Editor:
I write as the chair of the board of directors of Ely’s Historic State Theater. The movie “2000 Mules” is being screened this weekend at EHST by a local organization that is renting the theater for their use. Because many people within the community have expressed concern and even upset about this, I would like to clarify the theater’s rental policy, and the particulars of this event.

Northwoods Pride – An Agenda Looking Forward

Look around at our community and what do you see. Where are the boundaries of what you see as community? What is the geographical distance to the edge of your community? Is the community you recognize a social community, an ecological community, or both included in one?
Community is a group of common interests. With that in mind, the describing the characteristics of our community becomes complicated. History, beliefs, current needs, future interests and potential, available resources, leadership, social framework, environmental conditions etc. factor into the evolution, stability, and potential of communities to be sustainable. Any or all of these are important factors. Looking at your perception of your community, what do you see as its strengths?

Youth Golf: Swing-Swat-Sink

by Lori Casey
Thirty-three golf camp participants grades three to eight were definitely not swatting at golf balls last week at Ely Golf Club. Sand flies were swarming so the rhythm of play seemed to be swing the club, swat the bugs, and listen for that putt to sink! Throughout the week the pests seemed to decline and the winds helped create a comfortable atmosphere.
Several returning students from Ely, Duluth and Virginia welcomed newcomers from Iowa and Texas.
As in past years volunteer members of Ely Golf Club taught the game of golf to young girls and boys. The goal was to have fun, learn the game of golf or fine tune the “good” skills previously learned.
Tuesday through Friday coaches spent 90% of the time on the course. They taught a skill, tested for accuracy and practiced that swing in a game situation.

Four Wolves on All-7A baseball

After finishing as section runners-up, the Ely Timberwolves have placed four representatives on the All-Section 7A baseball team.
Seniors Chase Sandberg and Mason Davis, junior Joey Bianco and freshman Caid Chittum all made the all-section squad as determined by area coaches.
All played key roles on an Ely team that went 19-8 and reached the 7A finals, falling to defending champion South Ridge 3-2 in the title tilt.
Sandberg started every game as catcher for the Wolves and helped anchor the defense, throwing out 15 base stealers during the course of the spring.
At the plate, Sandberg had a .375 on-base percentage and hit .277 with 23 hits and 17 runs batted in.
Davis emerged as one of the section’s top pitchers, going 5-1 on the mound with a 0.62 earned run average, notching 36 strikeouts in 34 innings pitched. He also was a starting outfielder and hit .338 with 26 runs scored.
