Anti-mining meeting in Ely raises stir

by Tom Coombe
An unannounced meeting in Ely, where anti-mining advocates showed up en masse to share their concerns with representatives of U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, appears to have raised more questions than it answered.
About 100 people gathered in the theater at Vermilion Community College Monday and - according to a published report - railed against proposed copper-nickel mining projects and were critical of Klobuchar for not taking a hard stance in opposition.
The meeting was not publicized and was apparently organized in secret, although another publication was notified of the session.
Klobuchar aides Ida Rukavina and Brian Werner attended, and the Klobuchar office have since claimed surprise over the nature of the meeting.
“We were surprised,” said Ben Hill, a spokesperson for Klobuchar. “We weren’t trying to be sneaky. We were under the impression there would be no press there. There was confusion about what the meeting was.”

Forest Service to hold meetings on commercial activities

The Superior National Forest is examining the use of recreational commercial services provided on the Forest. To fully understand all the issues, the Forest will seek information from the public, special use permittees, partners, tribes, and others who use or have knowledge about recreational commercial services on the Forest, who recreate on the Forest, or who have other relevant concerns regarding recreation and recreational commercial uses offered on the Forest.
The Forest Service is working to strike a balance between rural economic development and the effects of recreational commercial services across the Forest. Our goal is to ensure future generations will continue to enjoy these national treasures. Recreational commercial services provide opportunities for visitors to recreate on the Forest by employing the expertise and equipment provided by an outfitter-guide service.
