District 6: Two Harbors area Conservation Officer Sean Williams (Ely) reports that the second week of the regular firearms season went well for hunters in the Echo Trail area. Although there were fewer hunters in the field, success rates seemed higher. Officer Williams investigated two poached deer in a road ditch east of Ely and a trespass complaint in the same area.

Question: Recently, I pulled over for a trooper who was coming up fast from behind traffic. The red lights were on and I could hear the siren. After he passed the traffic, I could see way up ahead that he turned his lights and siren off, and within a minute or so he pulled into a gas station pump on the other side of the road. Can troopers or other officers use their red lights and siren just to get to a gas station, or wherever? Answer: No, they can't, and I am sure that is not what happened in that case. What you described actually happens often.
Silver Bay Public Library News Once upon a time you opened a book and read from pages. They smelled like ink and papery wood. They were bright, colorful and big enough to share with a lap-full of warm children. Some of them were tucked-in beside you. Anxious little ones tried to roll the corner of the page to see what was next. Still others liked to draw and write in the books to create a story of their own. Our heads were filled with dragons, beanstalks, talking mice, an old woman who kept her children in a shoe, a boy who dreamed of being a prince and became a king.
A Bevy of Brews & a Kettle of Fish Wolf Ridge fundraiser, Dec. 6 The Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center's second annual North Shore-area fundraiser, "A Bevy of Brews & A Kettle of Fish", will be held Dec. 6 from 6-9 p.m. at the Great Lakes Aquarium in Duluth. As the name implies, the event will focus on the great many tasty brews made by brewers in Duluth and on the North Shore.
When I stand on the main road in Lupeni, Romania, and look up, I see a number of things. I see the mountains rising steeply on either side of me. I see the ruins of the coal mining industry, with obsolete smoke stacks reaching heights of 300 feet. I see scores of apartment blocks built during the communist period. And, on occasion, I see the crossing paths of jet streams against the untainted blue sky. It's intriguing. These people in giant, flying buses so far above me are unaware of what they are missing.
The Hendrens of Two Harbors hosted a family of first-time hunters over the deer hunting opener. David Hendren sent this photo of Jeff Quale from Cambridge, Minn., who had success on the first day of his first hunting season just south of Two Harbors. Monica Moore and Luke Miller joined in the hunt but weren't as lucky.

As promised, in this week's Gert's Dirt column, we're going to tackle the stove. With the holidays coming, you'll want a clean appliance for preparing festive meals and baking cookies, so put on those rubber gloves and let's get started. Stovetop and microwave Remove the knobs and vent filters and place in hot soapy water. Using a microfiber cloth, dish soap and water, wash and rinse the hood. Dry with a soft polish cloth. Remove gas stove burner grates or the metal bowls under electric stove heating elements; soak these as well.
