Three new Loon champs

by Tom Coombe
Three new champions were crowned Thursday in Ely.
Those were the winners in the 34th annual Loon Calling Contest, held under sunny skies outside Piragis Northwoods Company near the deck at new restaurant Moose Bear Wolf.
Ben Tomlinson won the adult division, Avery Ellerbroek was first among the boys and Eleanor Nyquist was the girls division.
The Loony Day celebration included the contest, which attracted an audience of about 75 people.
For three decades, the coos and trills of loons have resonated from the courtyard outside Piragis Northwoods Company, and the business treated all participants and spectators to ice cream cones.
Tomlinson, who is from Cleveland, Ohio, topped the adult field with Laura Harm of Madison, Wisc., in second place. Ely’s Micah Larson took third.

Changes at Ely Community Health Center include new dental clinic starting in September, home health care

Changes and new offerings are being made at the Ely Community Health Center.
Executive director Jon Erickson announced the changes on Wednesday.
“We have moved the date of the clinic to change from Monday evenings at 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. to Thursday evenings for the same times.
“We will be opening a new dental clinic focusing on fluoride varnish treatment in September. The dental clinic will be open from 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of each month,” said Erickson.
He said the dental clinic will focus initially on fluoride varnish treatment especially for the elderly, because medications can damage the dental, and children as well as those who can not afford dental care because of any number of finance reasons.
“The fluoride varnish treatment is an economical way to treat sensitivity in both adults and children and provides an additional tool that protects the teeth from cavities and sensitivity.
