Grand Marais Lioness Club Annual Fisherman's Picnic Buffet

Come kick off Fisherman’s Picnic and enjoy the best meal in Cook County on Wednesday, July 30 between 5:00 and 6:30 p.m. at St John’s Church Hall sponsored by the Grand Marais Lioness Club.  This Annual Buffet promises to satisfy your palate with its traditional fare of fishcakes, ham, meatballs, baked beans, salads (potato, fruit, cabbage slaw & relishes), bread, beverages, and home-made desserts.  Cost of the buffet is $15 for adults and $7 for children under 12 years.


Thanks to all the generous artisans, bankers, individuals and merchants you can participate in a newly expanded Silent Auction while at the Buffet.  Gift certificates galore will satisfy your needs or desires in many ways from art works, books, cash, a dog sled ride/drive, to a massage to vacation opportunities and vintage items.  A visual feast of decorative, good-for-gifting, and uniquely useful items will await your bidding.  Some of these items are of commercial origin, others are hand-crafted; but, 100% of all sales will benefit the Cook County community through its nonprofit organizations with the greatest share of proceeds granted to our students via Lioness grants to teacher initiated projects or scholarships.


See you there!

Our cat, Cami, went missing yesterday.  If you have seen her please call!   She is very friendly and will go up to anyone for some attention.  She is wearing a blueish/purpleish collar.

** for some reason I cant post a picture, but she is mostly brown with white and some orange.

County Attorney found guilty in sexual misconduct case

Fri, 07/25/2014 - 3:22pm

After three full days of testimony, a jury of nine men and three women has returned a verdict of guilty in the sexual misconduct trial of Cook County Attorney Tim Scannell. Scannell was charged with two counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct for an alleged inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old girl.

In order for a conviction, the jury had to find that Scannell was in a position of authority over the girl during the time the acts occurred.  The girl’s parents said Scannell had been a longtime family friend, advising her on college choices, acting as tennis and soccer coach, as well as academic advisor and job counselor.

Judge Shaun Floerke set sentencing for September 26 following a pre-sentence investigation.

Sentencing guidelines for fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct call for a stayed sentence of 18 to 24 months for an offender without a criminal history.
