Did your power go out and leave you in the dark?

.....Too bad you hadn't shopped at ODDZ & ENDZ before that last storm!  We had candles, lanterns, maybe even a flashlight or two.....  and we have BOOKS..

RECIPE books are my favorite.  I can't cook (when I walk into the kitchen the smoke alarm goes off in self defense!)...but I can read! The best are the church cook books, and we have representation of churches from  around the country, including Cook County. They are a mix of history, tid bits of news, corrections, and special recipes handwritten in the margins. Then there are the "specialty" cook books; cookies, bread, more cookies, holiday cooking, diet, non-diet, and road-kill.  There are recipe books for novice, experienced and children and then, of course there are the usual Betty Crocker, Emeril, etc. books designed for learning how to cook. 

BIOGRAPHIES and AUTOBIOGRAPHIES...everyone from Lawrence Welk to Sarah Palin. (no kidding)...

HOW to BOOKs... need to build a deck, learn to sail, design a house, paint an oyster shell?  How about crochet, or how to play croquet (you figure out the difference). You can learn how to tame a horse, detick a dog, neuter a hedgehog (well maybe not that)..plumb a sink, unclog a drain.... whatever you need, it is here!

FICTION.. sappy love stories where you know on the first page who Mr. Hunk really is... mysteries. who done it... spy novels... espionage... humor (think Garrison Keillor).

NON-FICTION  historical, political, spiritual, adventure

              and of course

SELF-HELP  we have those on the top shelf so that you have to ask for help to get them down.

Man killed on Duncan Lake is brother of Minnesota Congressman

Mon, 06/20/2016 - 2:01pm

On Sunday night, June 19, a number of intense storms moved through northeastern Minnesota. According to Cook County Sheriff Pat Eliasen, one person died and another was critically injured on Duncan Lake during Sunday night’s storm. Duncan Lake is a popular lake in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness located near West Bearskin Lake.

Four males were camping on the lake — two 43-year-old men and juveniles ages 14 and 11. Craig Anthony Walz, 43, of Rochester, was killed during the incident. One of the juvenile males was injured when a mature white pine snapped due to high winds in the storm. The body of Walz was recovered early Monday morning and transported to North Shore Health in Grand Marias for coroner review. 

Craig Walz, who was killed on Duncan Lake in last night’s storm, is the brother of Minnesota Congressman Tim Walz. Craig Walz was a high school chemistry, calculus and geometry teacher at St. Charles High School located in southeastern Minnesota.

During a separate incident during Sunday night’s storm, another male camper in the BWCAW was injured on Clove Lake when a tree feel on his campsite. The male was evacuated from Clove Lake and transported to the Cook County Northshore Hospital by ambulance. Clove Lake is located near the Granite River and Gunflint Lake. 

Rochester man killed in June 19 storm

Mon, 06/20/2016 - 1:21pm

A brief, but severe storm passed though Cook County on Sunday, June 19, leaving downed trees and power lines in its wake. The storm also resulted in a fatality and injuries to campers at two different Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) sites.

Cook County Law Enforcement received back-to-back emergency calls. The first at 10:24 p.m. reported that a tree had fallen on a man camping on Clove Lake, injuring his “upper body.” A medical helicopter was requested and plans were made for it to land at the Seagull Guard Station to meet emergency responders who would bring the man out of the wilderness.

The U.S. Forest Service, Gunflint Ambulance, Gunflint Fire Department and First Responders and Gunflint Search and Rescue responded and as they got under way, another call came in to Cook County Law Enforcement, reporting that help was needed at Duncan Lake. At 10:25, the reporting party said there was a deceased person and a severely injured person on the northwest side of Duncan Lake.

The medical helicopter was diverted from landing at the Seagull Guard Station to respond to this incident. The injured party from Clove Lake was taken by Gunflint Ambulance to North Shore Health.

Cook County Ambulance and Cook County Search and Rescue were paged to assist with the second call.

Responders learned that four people were at the campsite, two adult males and two juvenile males, when the storm’s high winds snapped a mature white pine off at the trunk, killing Craig Anthony Walz, 43, of Rochester, Minnesota.

The tree also struck and injured one of the juvenile males. Camp Menogyn and the uninjured campers assisted in transporting the juvenile out of the wilderness to the Cook County Ambulance.

The patient was transported to North Shore Health and then flown by medical helicopter to a Duluth hospital.
