Trout Whisperer - Black night

I’m laying here listening to stars; they seem to be awfully quiet again tonight. I think it’s time to get up and finish this. I have a place I will air my mind, let the thoughts bound in daylight, maybe let them loose by sitting in the darkened porch.
In my wicker chair I can feel the slight breeze against my skin; I deep breathe that feeling right into me. I like when the night gives me cool fresh air.
Tonight, this darkness, all this quiet, if I believed in such things, would be like meeting the man in the long black coat. I strike a match, the candle is lit, and it pushes back against those thoughts.
Out there, up there, the tiny silver chips flicker, it’s one of my favorite unsung songs, for me it’s like watching a really good blues song, sung. Now I have only to listen to the music playing in my head.
I can feel it.
I can feel tonight.
It matters.

G Men, Northern Lights Rolloff will now compete for commercial garbage business

by Tom Coombe
Pending the submission of required paperwork, Ely business owners will soon have two choices when it comes to waste disposal.
After more than a year of debate, council members unanimously approved a sanitation committee recommendation to award commercial waste disposal contracts to both G Men Environmental Services and Northern Lights Rolloff.
The new contracts will take effect Nov. 1 and be in place for years.
The stage was set for competition in the commercial marketplace for several months, with first the sanitation committee and ultimately the council agreeing to make commercial service to multiple providers.
Currently, trash service is provided exclusively in Ely by the G Men, and the firm will continue to provide residential service on an exclusive basis.

EDITORIAL Mayors’ endorsement puts Range in limelight

It’s not everyday that Ely and Babbitt make national news.
But the communities had their few days in the spotlight this week, and it wasn’t even because of copper-nickel mining.
Instead, the strangest of political seasons had the cameras of a major cable news outlet focused on Ely.
In a matter of two hours Wednesday, both Ely Mayor Chuck Novak and Babbitt Mayor Andrea Zupancich were interviewed on the Fox News Channel, with Zupancich getting a segment on the top-rated program hosted by personality Tucker Carlson.
The topic? The presidential election and the respective mayors’ endorsement of President Donald Trump.
Mayors and other elected officials often take a stand in regional, statewide and national political races.
Candidates for the State House and Senate, U.S. House and U.S. Senate often showcase the endorsements of regional officials as a means of showing support.
