Close wolf sighting

This morning about 8am a wolf was coming down our trail to our house. I believe I saw two, one went east the other west as my dog Buddy, tore after them. I ran screaming for my dog and he did not come back until I was in the woods and calling over and over for him. He came back unscathed but now he is on a hook.  The wolves were less than 50 yards from our house and I could see the one clearly. Be cautious with your pets. We live on County & close to the Bally Creek Road and 4 mi to town.

Designed to honor the families of active and veteran members of the military, the Minnesota Military Family Tribute will be the first of its kind in the nation. Poised on the grounds of the Minnesota State Capitol Mall, the Tribute will thank those that have made, and continue to make, sacrifices here at home.

Excerpts from correspondence sent between military members and their family will be etched onto large stones, providing a window into the lives of our military families and their sacrifices, as well as imparting a strong educational component for the Tribute.

Please send copies of letters, telegrams, e-mail or even video from any timeframe to the Cook County Veterans Service Office at 411 West 2nd St, Grand Marais, MN 55604 by November 14th. Call 218-387-3639 or email if you have any questions.

While only a small portion of any contributed submission will be etched into the stone, likely a portion of a sentence, the stories will depict the life of our military families.
