Think Spring - Plant Bulbs

Yes, We really do mean "think spring"    Our fall selection of flower bulbs has now arrived.

Our beautiful fall weather is perfect for planting snow crocus, daffodil, allium, tulips and hyacinths bulbs.

As winter melts away, these sure signs of spring will pop from the ground and color your yard.

We have bulb planters, bone meal and a nifty kneeler pad to help with your planting.

LSProject: The Hovland plane crash

Tue, 09/20/2016 - 12:30pm
feedsetimg.jpeg

A Cessna 185 disappeared in the fall of 1971, and no trace of the plane or its three occupants was found until nearly 12 years later.

In this edition of The Lake Superior Project, we hear the story of the Hovland plane crash from Orvis Lunke - one of the four DNR forestry workers who discovered the remains of the plane in a remote section of forest, just inland from Lake Superior.

Events planned to commemorate International Day of Peace, Sept. 21

Tue, 09/20/2016 - 11:27am

September 21 has been designated as the International Day of Peace and the day is being commemorated with two events.

Kathleen Sullivan of Grand Marais explains that dedicating September 21 as a day of peace was created with a resolution from the United Nations in 2001. Citizens around the world are called to gather to promote the ideal of peace in our communities, countries and the world.

Sullivan has organized a “Gather for Peace” event on Wednesday evening, September 21 at 7 p.m. at the Grand Marais Rec Park in Grand Marais.

Sullivan said, “We will sing, share ideas, listen to some readings. Join us.”

Trinity Lutheran Church in Hovland is also holding a gathering, an Offering of Music and Prayers featuring music by Jon Romer of Cass Lake and Bill Beckstrand of Hovland. The program will include Native American flute with Romer, piano with Beckstrand, and violin with Erika Ternes.

The program will feature traditional Native American pieces, spirituals and old-time hymns.

Romer, who received graduate and undergraduate degrees in music education, choral music and choral literature at Gustavus Adolphus College and at the University of Iowa, has spent much of his career integrating Native American music into the contemporary multicultural classroom.

Beckstrand, local composer and musician, widely known for his vocal and instrumental compositions, worked with Romer in the past and suggested that they perform together for this special gathering.

The Offering of Music and Prayers will be at 7 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hovland

Trinity Lutheran Church Pastor Kris Garey said, “We join others around the world who pray for peace.”

Changes proposed by Emergency Management for event coordinators

Tue, 09/20/2016 - 11:25am

Jim Wiinanen is retiring from his position as director of Cook County Emergency Management One of Wiinanen’s last duties included asking commissioners to require that any event permit application that comes to the county have an emergency action plan.

Wiinanen said, “Luck is not a plan.”

Wiinanen told commissioners, “All events face some hazards whether natural or human caused. Event organizers should take responsibility for emergencies that may happen during their event and think through and document their procedures to address risk reduction and emergency actions.”

County Administrator Jeff Cadwell suggested forming a temporary committee, which included officials from Grand Marais, the highway/police departments and private event organizers to make suggestions about what an emergency action plan should look like before the board passed a motion on the subject.

 Commissioner Moe agreed. Moe said, “Event planning has a way of wearing out volunteers. I would hope that if we put together a committee that we don’t make the rules too onerous for those who are putting on events.”

Housing forum at North House builds framework for action

Tue, 09/20/2016 - 11:20am
feedsetimg.jpeg

Mary Tingerthal is the Commissioner for Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, an organization that strives for safe, decent and affordable housing across the state.

During a forum held Monday, Sept. 19 at North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Tingerthal and about 50 other individuals talked on exactly that topic.

In addition to Commissioner Tingerthal, other staff from Minnesota housing, representatives from USDA Rural Development, Greater Minnesota Housing Fund and the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development participated in Monday’s forum. Also present were a number of local elected officials and staff from both city hall and Cook County.

Essentially the forum at North House was a planning session to discuss affordable housing and future development of Cook County. On that front, Tingerthal says the event was a complete success. 

Among the topics discussed during the forum were locations to build housing projects, a means to encourage housing developments and who will do the work. Tingerthal says there appears to be viable options with regard to both supply and demand for affordable housing projects in Cook County. Another topic that was addressed during Monday’s forum was that of affordable renting opportunities in the region.

Coming out of the forum, Tingerthal says the next steps for local agencies, elected officials and developers will be to secure funding opportunities and put ideas into action.
