Winter withdarws, will return

Wed, 12/07/2016 - 11:19am

Dick Nelson couldn't believe his water gauge. It contained seven inches of rainwater.

"Seven inches. Can you believe it?" Nelson asked on Tuesday, November 29.

Convert that rain to snow, said Nelson, and that would make "a good five feet. Maybe more," he exclaimed on the phone from his Lutsen residence.

While Nelson didn't want five feet of snow dumped on us in a small amount of time, Lutsen Mountains would at least like the temperatures to fall below freezing so they can once again start to make snow.  Enough snow was made to open a few runs in time for Thanksgiving, but much of that has been washed away. Still, skiers take heart, a few cold nights and some natural snowfall are all that is needed for runs to open again.

Nelson isn't the only one surprised by winter's brief retreat.

Winter came with a pounding fury and frightening flurry of snow less than two weeks ago. It took about 12 hours to blanket the Northland under a foot of snow in some places, but then it backed down, and a day later fall returned.

Instead of a white rabbit landscape, the ground is brown, wet and muddy, sloppy as a St. Bernard puppy’s kiss but not as cute.

 The Co-op parking lot in Grand Marais has been flooded for two days. Even in the summer, it doesn't stay under water that long.

Meanwhile, the rivers are once again high, and the water is moving fast. It feels like fishing for Rainbow can't be far behind.

As far as the 10-day weather forecast, snow is coming. As of November 30 temps are supposed to be in the 30s during the day but colder at night with a chance of snow. That's the way the forecast looks for the next 10 days: falling temps, lots of clouds, and some snow. Even a little snow will whiten the land and brighten moods as the gray of winter once again falls upon us.

Commissioners backtrack on decision to meet with adminstrator to solve board greviance

Wed, 12/07/2016 - 11:17am

The Grand Marais Harbor isn’t full of tea bags yet, but it could be.

Commissioner Frank Moe called on citizens to take back their county.

Appearing on WTIP Radio on Wednesday, Nov. 30, Moe said he thought the proposed 19.88 percent levy increase was too high for many lower income folks or for people living on a fixed income to pay. He asked county residents to take their tax statements to the Truth In Taxation meeting held the next day and complain.

Moe also responded to WTIP interviewer Jay Andersen’s questions about the vote taken by his fellow board members to dissolve a committee formed the week before to look into Administrator Jeff Cadwell’s comments to him during an intermission break that was caught on film.

At that Nov. 22 meeting commissioners voted 3-2 to form a committee to investigate whether comments made by Cadwell to Moe should result in disciplinary action.

Voting for the action was Garry Gamble, Frank Moe, and Ginny Storlie. Commissioners Jan Sivertson and Heidi Doo-Kirk voted against the motion. Moe asked that he not be included on the committee and it was agreed commissioners Gamble and Storlie along with Cook County Human Resources Director Judy Hill and Cook County Attorney Molly Hicken would meet with Cadwell to discuss the situation and report back to the board in a quick time frame.

However, before the committee could meet it was dissolved.

Cook County Commissioner Jan Sivertson, reading a prepared statement at the board's Nov. 29 meeting, called for an action to rescind a motion to end a committee commissioners formed at their Nov. 22 meeting.

Commissioner Sivertson said she had reviewed the tape several times and didn't see anything disrespectful or inappropriate from Cadwell toward Moe. She said she was offended by the board's action to form a committee, and felt that Cadwell's words were taken out of context. She also said that if the committee met it could be hurtful to the county administrator as well as damage the reputation of the county, especially in the recruitment of new employees.

Meanwhile, at the same meeting Commissioner Storlie voted with Sivertson and Doo-Kirk to stop the committee from meeting, although her reasons for changing her mind weren't clear.

Earlier, to start the commissioners’ meeting several members of the Cook County/Grand Marais EDA and Chamber of Commerce came forward during public comments. They were invited by Sivertson to speak on behalf of Administrator Cadwell at the board's meeting in an e-mail she sent to them on Nov. 26.

Speaking for Cadwell were Hal Greenwood, Jim Boyd, director of the Cook County Chamber of Commerce, Linda Jurek Kratt from Visit Cook County, Scott Harrison, Mary Somnis and Howard Hedstrom from the Cook County/Grand Marais Economic Development Authority (EDA) and Charles Skinner, one of the owners of Lutsen Mountains ski hill.

One of the key elements to making the county work better, said Skinner, was the hiring of a county administrator. "Jeff Cadwell is smart, skilled. I don't think you will find a better county administrator," Skinner said.

Moe felt comments Cadwell made to him during the Nov. 22 break were disrespectful and violated the personnel committee handbook. That is why he called for a committee to look into the matter and make a judgment that would be brought back to the county board for review.

When it became apparent that no action would be taken to resolve the dispute between Commissioner Moe and Administrator Cadwell, Commissioner Gamble said,  "It is clear that we do not have the will or appetite to address difficult issues. We would like them to go away."

Janicek reciveves EMDR training

Wed, 12/07/2016 - 11:11am

EMDR is a powerful approach to psychotherapy that has helped an estimated two million people of all ages to find relief and recovery from posttraumatic stress.  Local therapist Suzabelle Janicek is in the final month of completing training at Midwest EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) that now qualify her to begin scheduling and preparing clients for treatment.

 Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. In addition to posttraumatic stress, research has noted success in treating conditions including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, panic attacks, phobias, pain disorders, grief and more. 

EMDR is a highly safe and sought after therapeutic practice, in fact, The Department of Defense/Department of Veterans Affairs Practice Guidelines have placed EMDR in the highest category, meaning that it is recommended for all trauma populations at all times. Additionally, the World Health Organization (2013) has stated that EMDR is one of only two psychotherapies recommended for children, adolescents, and adults with PTSD. It has also been noted that EMDR does not involve (a) detailed descriptions of the event, (b) direct challenging of beliefs, (c) extended exposure, or (d) homework.

The training of an EMDR therapist requires steps early on in resourcing the client and careful assessment to ensure the client is fully prepared for treatment, prior to beginning the process.  These measures are specific to each individual and are practiced to maintain the stability of individual throughout the therapeutic process. Without this type of preparation, there is a likelihood of a client being re-traumatized and left without a means of stabilizing him or her.  

It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy, people can quickly experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference.  EMDR therapy reveals that the mind can, in fact, heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma and is documented as a shorter, cost effective treatment.

 Janicek's training was the result of a grant awarded to Oshki Ogimaag School by the North Shore Healthcare Foundation, and an additional grant from Higher Education to cover costs associated with participating in an out of town training.

She currently offers a variety of therapeutic services including Art Therapy along with a broad understanding of Somatic Experience and trauma recovery. Her experience includes private practice as well as directs care and group facilitation in hospital and educational settings that include Allina's Mercy Hospital Behavioral Health and Park House an AIDS/HIV day health center as well as Waldorf Education. She has also provided private consultation in Autism Spectrum Disorder recovery using the "DAN protocol." She carries two Masters Degrees and is a registered Art Therapist with Art Therapy Credentials Board as well as Reike Certified in Levels 1 & 2. Janicek is now scheduling assessments and resourcing for EMDR services as an additional modality in her current practice and can be reached at 651-491-6585. She is able to meet with individuals in both Grand Marais and Grand Portage offices.

Buck's Big Buck contest winners

Mon, 11/28/2016 - 5:02pm

There is little doubt that the champion deer hunter in northeastern Minnesota this fall is Devyn Deschampe.

Deschampe, Grand Portage, was leading late in the big buck contest at Brimson Sportsmen’s Club (Hugo’s Bar) in Brinson, with his buck that weighed 239.6-pounds. He was in first place with the same buck (246 pounds) at the Fisherman’s Corner, Pike Lake contest and he won Buck’s Big Buck contest in Grand Marais with the same deer that weighed 244-pounds on Buck’s scale.

Devyn’s hunting partner and close relative, Stacy Houglum, Grand Marais, was in second place in the Brimson contest with his 236.6 field dressed entry and was also in second in the Fisherman’s Corner contest with the same animal that weighed less on that scale, dropping to 223 pounds.

Buck’s Hardware Hank announced the 2016 winners of their annual “Buck’s Big Buck” contest on Tuesday, November 22.

Devyn Deschampe will receive a new model 70 Winchester rifle for his champion buck.  Winning bragging rights only, Deb Vannett, Hovland, finished second with a 240-pound buck and Stan Pelto recorded the third largest buck at 230 pounds.

The biggest antler spread (by outside measurement of the antlers) was 23 inches by Kennedy Soehren. Soehren, from Tomah, Wisconsin, received $1,940 for his win. Finishing a whisker behind was the 22 5-8 inches antler entry by Grand Marais Chad Smith. Trevor Deschampe of Grand Portage led for a while, but his 21-¾ inch antlers entry fell to third place.

The lucky duck random drawing winner was Grand Smith. Smith will receive $1,940, half of the entry money.

Overall the firearms deer harvest in Northeastern Minnesota was up 24.9 percent over last year, said Tom Rusch, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources area wildlife manager at Tower.

Winterer's Gathering gathers plenty of winter lovers

Winterer's Gathering gathers plenty of winter folks

Staff report

There was plenty of winter this year for North House Folk Schools 12-plus Winterer's Gathering festival held November 18-20.

Hardy winter campers in the Grand Marais Recreational Park had their tents tested by big winds on Friday night when winter arrived in all of its furious glory. Trees were downed around the North House campus during the hard blow, but by Saturday mid-morning the big winds were gone, and snow painted the school grounds white.  As for the 160 students on campus, they came to participate in the 16 classes offered and to celebrate the cool crafts, customs, and landscapes and learn some history and hear some stories of winter travel.

An added attraction this year was the addition of an arctic film festival.

In between films and seminars the annual Gear and Ski Swap took place in the red building while in the blue building, more than forty people earnestly built Ojibwe snowshoes out of ash.

At 2 p.m. guests took a walking tour, visiting some of the winter campers in the rec park to see how they stayed warm, and how they kept their tents upright in big winds. Dick Swanson put on a cross country ski waxing clinic at 3 p.m. and at 4 p.m. Becky Fitzpatrick taught people how to make ice cream by hand. Nearby, a group of mostly men was making chili outside in a giant steaming, bubbling pot. More than 180 people enjoyed the chili.

 For those who were lucky enough to stick around, a crowd estimated to be more than 200; Dave and Amy Freeman talked about their year in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCAW) and at 9 p.m. the film Gold Rush was shown.

North House Folk School Executive Director Greg Wright felt the onslaught of winter helped to fuel the theme.

"This (Winterer's Gathering) has become a capstone event for us," said Wright. "The Cold Snap poetry reading on Friday night was a real hoot for us, and Dave and Amy did an incredible job in talking about their year in the BWCA. One lady asked Amy what it was like to be back in the real world and Amy replied that she felt like when she left the BWCA she had left the real world. I thought that was a neat answer."
