Fish sticks

What is going on? Every time I turn on the news there’s another disaster—a hurricane, an earthquake, a senate vote. There’s only one thing to do: Stop turning on the news.
I’m joking! As citizens, it behooves us to stay informed. It’s the responsible thing to do. Besides, if we bury our heads in the sand, we leave our backsides vulnerable.
When there’s chaos all around, I feel it’s my duty as a professional columnist to be the voice of reason. So let me take this opportunity to utter a few well-chosen words of wisdom: Help! Somebody, do something!
Kidding again! Because of course, I am somebody and so are you. So as usual, it’s up to us. Somehow we must muddle through together. And naturally, that brings me to the subject of fish sticks.

Drones Restricted on Superior National Forest

The Forest Service recognizes that unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), also known as drones, are a tool that can provide exciting new options for the public to explore the National Forests and are a tool for the agency to accomplish its mission.

However, the Forest Service wants to ensure the public understands there are restrictions on the use of drones on the National Forest, including the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), and that there are federal penalties for illegal use.

The purpose of these restrictions is to provide for the safety of air operations, protect natural resources, and protect the rights of other citizens.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has primary authority over drones and other UAS. The following are some key FAA regulations for the use of drones, but drone operators should check for additional guidelines on the FAA website or at an FAA office.

Almost 120 years ago - This was Ely’s Sheridan Street

Utilizing the Ely Echo’s over 600 page “Blue Book” - Ely, Since 1888 and the 1900 Sanborn Map of Ely and the area, the detail on the Vail Hotell (far left) and the many saloons of Ely are noted in this week’s Ely Echo. Patrick Vail was Ely's first fire chief in 1889 when the volunteer department was formed. He was the owner of the hotel which burned on March 17, 1905. Vail was elected Mayor of Ely twice.

Mid-November before County 88 bridge opening

Looking south on County 88, Grant McMahan Boulevard, one see puddles but not much river as workers prepare for the cement pour. Once that is done, there will be a 30 day wait for the concrete to cure and be able to take the weight of vehicles and trucks. Meanwhile area residents in the Burntside and north Shagawa Lake area must still drive added miles to Ely. Plus this weekend the two Ely Marathon runs will shut down Echo Trail and the southeast portion of 88 as well as many Ely streets and avenues for runners.
