On Monday, 13 students and one adult participated in the Silver Bay firearms safety class field day. Each student learned about tree stands, demonstrated proper gun handling and got to shoot live ammunition at the rifle range. All students successfully completed the class.
Certified instructors Bob Kind, Noel Lillis, Randy Lillis, Marc Huss,Gary Brumberg and conservation officer Dan Thomason taught the four classroom sessions as well as teaching and supervising the field day activities.
The Silver Bay class was sponsored by the Wilderness Chapter of the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association.
The Silver Bay/Two Harbors/Cook County girls hockey team lost a couple of games from the schedule when the East Range Knights of Babbitt-Embarrass/Ely/Tower suspended operations due to a lack of participants. They now have home and away games against Hibbing.
The East Range Athletic Association board of directors intends to help players find other teams. Possibilities include Eveleth-Gilbert, Hibbing, and Silver Bay. They have already made contact with Silver Bay. Numbers wise, Silver Bay makes more sense as the other two schools already had 30-40 girls returning from last season. A possible return of participants could reinstate the program.
The St. Louis County school district announced it would keep all seven schools open for this school year. Planned closures and consolidations would begin in 2011, which is good news for the Mariners as they play every school in one sport or another and are in a football conference with the area teams — AlBrook, Babbitt-Embarrass, Cherry, Cook, Cotton, Orr and Tower-Soudan. Cotton has merged with Albrook in football.
Rhino White Trash won the Silver Bay Softball League this year going undefeated in the playoffs and regular season. They are sponsored by John’s Sanitary.
