Civic Center welcomes new manager

From bait to boats, women anglers help each other BY KIRSTEN FAURIE EDITOR@MORAMINN.COM


“Do you need help?” Julie Lane of the Women Anglers of Minnesota laughed at how often she used to hear that question asked of women at boat landings as they maneuvered their boat and trailer into the water. Julie grew up in a time when it was rare to see a woman managing her own boat. These days, she said it is more acceptable for women to launch and drive their own boats, bait their own hooks and land their own fish. Today, more and more women are taking the sport of fishing into their own hands. This year the Women Anglers of Minnesota is celebrating its 41st year as an organization — the longest of any active women’s fishing club in the nation, and membership is growing. According to Julie, their membership has doubled in the last two years and currently stands at about 450 members statewide. The organization’s mission is to provide opportunities and education to women and children that help them participate in the sport of fishing. “We do a lot of teaching,” said Julie. Many of WAM’s members have never fished before and learn everything from the basics of baiting hooks to driving fishing boats. She recalled a recent class on the basics of how to tie fishing line had over 70 women participate. Today, women are the fastest growing SEE FISHING, PAGE 13


With her competitive edge showing through, Julie Lane loves catching big fish, like these small-mouth bass .

The Mora Civic Center has found itself a new manager. In January, Mora Area Youth Recreation Association hired Jesse Ulstrom, a Mora native, to manage the facility. Jesse, who in the early 2000’s worked as a rink attendant at the very facility he now manages, graduated in 2001 from Mora High School before pursuing work down in the Twin Cities. Recently, he and his wife returned to Mora to start a family, citing the great sense of community and recreational opportunities that the town has to offer. Jesse has been busy in the past few months, learning the ropes from former Mora Civic Center manager Brett Baldwin, along with meeting and working with the MAYRA board. His short-term plans for the facility are improving the Civic Center’s looks. “The previous management here did a good job of improving the infrastructure of the place—and so what I would like to focus more on is improving this place visually, and just giving it a facelift,” he said. The Mora Civic Center, which was built in 1987, has had various small projects done every year, but nothing quite on the scale that Jesse is thinking. “A lot of painting,” he said. Another big emphasis that Jesse will SEE CIVIC CENTER, PAGE 6

4-H, Pheasants Forever partner to support pollinators BY TERRY SALMELA NEWS@MORAMINN.COM

Kanabec County 4-H shooting sports and wildlife project members are teaming up with the Kanabec County Pheasants Forever Chapter to help pollinator insects in Mora this summer and in the future. The 4-Hers are doing so through four workshops this spring led by county 4-H

wildlife project leaders Faye Lilyerd, Mickie Hessenius, Miranda Harris and Dan Porter. They will be working with the Pheasants Forever youth chair Dale Barnick this summer to plant about two acres of pollinator plots in the Mora Park near Stenstrom’s Auto Body and the Mora bike trail. At their first pollinator workshop on March 18, the 4-Hers learned from Lilyerd, Hess-

enius and Harris about the types of pollination, reasons for bee decline, how pollinators help us and how to help pollinators. They also learned what tacos and pizza would be like without pollinators. A highlight was to build a native bee tunnel nest and a bee nesting block. At the second session in SUBMITTED

Question: Is it illegal to drive barefoot? Answer: Driving a motor vehicle barefoot in Minnesota is LEGAL. I must say that secured footwear can be safer, especially when you’re operating a motorcycle, moped or even a car. I have heard of crashes that were caused by loose sandals/flip flops that interfered with the brake and acceleration pedals. This brings up another safety issue. Make sure the driver’s side floor mat is secured in place. Most newer Ask A vehicles have a tab that is attached to Trooper the floor of the vehicle that attaches to the floor mat, so the mat does not Neil Dickenson interfere with the brake or accelerator pedals. O h unsafe f acts that I see on the road are when Other the front seat occupants have a pet in their lap and when front seat passengers place their feet on the dash board while the vehicle is in motion. I caution and warn people that in the event of an airbag deployment, serious injuries could occur to the pet, driver and passengers. Being in a vehicle is probably the most dangerous thing that most of us will do on a daily basis, so anytime we get behind the wheel, pay attention, drive the speed limit, never drive intoxicated and always wear your seatbelt.

Don’t let time keep you from fishing A little less than two years ago, a relative of mine moved to Minnesota from Illinois. He bought a home in a metro suburb and asked me about something he heard on the news. It was May, and all the broadcasters were talking about “fishing opener” and news reports focused a lot about the weather, traffic and safety regarding hauling boats and checking your trailer lights. He laughed and wondered, why is this news? What is the big deal with “fishing opener”? Editor Then, the big weekend came. “Oh,” he said, as the realizaKirsten Faurie tion hit him of what made fishing opener such a “big deal.” He was able to witness for himself the massive impact the weekend had on the state’s travel and economics. According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the average Minnesota angler spends 15 days a year fishing. Fishing also creates approximately 43,000 Minnesota jobs and $2.8 billion in retail spending. I’ve always considered myself a person who enjoys fishing, but when I read that statistic, I looked back and realized I only spent two days fishing last year, and even less the year before. What happened? Where did the time go and what was I spending it on if not fishing? I know I’m “busy.” We all are, but its a terrible excuse for not doing something you love, whether it be a hobby or visiting with family and friends. I know I waste a terrible amount of time on television and mindless browsing of the internet and social media. Every day I tell myself these things are something I will do “soon” but somehow “soon” doesn’t ever come. Don’t let life leaving you wishing you had spent more time fishing. Time will get the best of us, and far sooner than any of us anticipate. Turn someday into today. Go fishing.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The New Eminent Domain To the editor Readers may be familiar with the term eminent domain, where a government agency may take private property for public use, generally for roads, bridges, power lines, etc. You may even see the newly released motion picture “Little Pink House” which depicts this type of property seizure. Not satisfied with that, the government has a new version of eminent domain, it’s called the Expansion of Medicaid. If you are 55 years or older and your after deduction income gives you no option except Medicaid for health insurance, beware. The state you live in can request from the federal government permission to take back (recover) all expenses paid on your behalf while you were on the Medicaid program, from your estate after your death, including huge monthly insurance premiums. Many states currently employ this tactic (Minnesota doesn’t recover now but can in the future). You get health insurance now but

your heirs can pay dearly later, and pay they may, from your real estate, savings, vehicles, equipment, firearms, tools, furniture to any other of your possessions the state determines worth recovering. Medicaid recovery is actually worse than eminent domain where at least you can take your savings and personal property when you are evicted. If you believe this type of property seizure for health insurance is unethical (no other government subsidy program is subject to recovery) and extreme (your entire estate could be consumed in a matter of a few years), contact Representative Rick Nolan (202225-6211) and Senator Amy Klobuchar (202-224-3244) and voice your concern and indignation. They are currently working on legislation to lessen the severity of Medicaid Estate Recovery at the national level. Your call may save your estate or the estate of someone you know. As a nation we can do better than property seizure in the guise of affordable health care. Rick Rayburn Willow River

NRA goals should support gun safety To the editor: The appointment of Oliver North as the president of the National Rifle Association has prompted me to write this letter. According to “The Second Amendment – A Biography,” written by Michael Waldman, the NRA was established in 1871 by militia and Army veterans to train American men to shoot safely and accurately. For many years following the birth of the country in 1776, legislators discussed the role of the federal government in providing security (there was no Army yet), and how the militias and a potential federal Army would function. Gun ownership and the right to “keep and bear arms” was not part of the discussion. The NRA’s leadership was overthrown in the mid-1970s, and, instead of being a training organization, the group’s mission was redefined. According to Waldman, its published mission was: “The SEE LETTERS, PAGE 5

Parents matter when guiding teens


n loco parentis, a Latin phrase meaning “in place of the parent,” is frequently used in the legal world in the context of responsibility and liability, and recently came to mind as it relates to the alarming rise in the use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) among our local youth. According to the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, e-cigarettes are the most commonly used County tobacco product among Attorney U.S. middle and high school students. In Barb Minnesota, there has been an explosion in McFadden e-cigarette use. Nearly one in five high school students reports using e-cigarettes in the past 30 days, which represents a nearly 50 percent increase since 2014. Currently, any juvenile who is found in possession of a tobacco product receives a citation from law enforcement. For a first time offense, the juvenile is given an opportunity to attend a free diversion program. Subsequent violations or noncompliance with the diversion program will result in a mandatory court appearance, and, if found guilty, court fines are assessed and the citation is entered on the juvenile’s record. A juvenile caught with tobacco on school property faces these same juvenile justice consequences plus is subject to additional sanctions from the school, including suspension from classes and extracurricular activities. A parent of a juvenile offender recently asked of the County Attorney’s Office, “Can’t your office do more than impose a fine, like make [the child] do community service?” While there may be the potential for the court system to “do more,” is that approach really likely

Mistakes are an inherent part of growing up. Parents need to recognize the influence they have on their own children’s lives and the enormous opportunities that mistakes present for parents to be parents. to change the offender’s behavior? Mistakes are an inherent part of growing up. Parents need to recognize the influence they have on their own children’s lives and the enormous opportunities that mistakes present for parents to be parents. The Minnesota Student Survey conducted by the Minnesota Department of Health showed that 79.9 percent of Kanabec County eighth, ninth and 11th grade students that responded agreed or strongly agreed that parents or other adults should clearly communicate about the importance of not using alcohol. Unfortunately, only 29.2 percent of this same group of students actually felt that their parents or other adults did in fact clearly communicate to them the importance of not using alcohol. The Substance Abuse Coalition of Kanabec County has armed parents with information and strategies to empower them to parent, and will continue to be a resource for prevention of youth alcohol, tobacco and other drug use. In so doing, the coalition hopes to provide parents and other adults the tools they need to educate the youth in their lives and in their community. To all parents and guardians: you matter. No one can take your place. Barb McFadden is the Kanabec County Attorney.


NRA, the foremost guardian of the traditional American right to ‘keep and bear arms,’ believes that every law-abiding citizen is entitled to the ownership and legal use of firearms, and that every reputable gun owner should be an NRA member.” By the 2000 election, the NRA had a new statement of mission installed on its building. It reads “…. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” It makes no mention of a militia or any of the other words that are part of the Second Amendment. My research has revealed that an individual citizen’s right to own a firearm was not established until 2008 (www.constitution.findlaw. com/amendment2) in the case of the District of Columbia vs Heller. Prior to this court case, the U.S. Supreme Court hadn’t even definitively stated what right the Second Amendment protected. In Heller, the court protected “an individual’s right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that weapon for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.” The NRA has clearly created beliefs among the American citizens that were not part of the Second Amendment when it was adopted and are not parts of it now. It is my belief that Mr. North will continue to push those beliefs further into the political debate over guns and gun safety. It is also my belief that the vast majority of the NRA membership are people who enjoy hunting and sport shooting and are responsible in the use, storage and transport of their firearms. The goal of any current legislation should be to reduce the likelihood that firearms fall into the hands of someone who is likely to do harm. I hope that under North’s leadership, the NRA will raise its voice in support of legislation that accomplishes that single, most important goal. Loren Brabec Braham

I am a democrat To the editor: I am a democrat because: We already spend more on defense and war than the next 12 countries combined. We need to spend our resources on our citizens. Everyone should have access to affordable health care (how fortunate we are to have Medicare). Public education is essential for

well-informed citizens who can compete in a world economy. Climate change, the development and increased usage of non-carbon based energy should be a priority. We must protect water and land for future generations. Trickle-down economics did not work in the ‘20’s, it did not work in the ‘80’s, once again, it will mostly benefit the wealthy. Increasing the minimum wage would enable workers to support their families and stimulate the economy. We cannot continue to use force and threats to get the rest of the world to follow our lead. We are alienating our allies. Water-boarding is torture and torture is unacceptable. Elections should be open and honest without outside interference, with every vote counting. Elections should not be controlled by who can raise the most money. The right to choice does not mean being in favor of abortion, encourage responsible birth control, teach your children to abstain but do not expect everyone to follow your beliefs. Government and religion should function separately. Maintain a safety net for those children. DACA must be reinstated. Those individuals who came as children are contributing to the U.S., they know no other country. We are all fortunate that our ancestors came here. Give those individuals the same opportunity. Prejudice is alive and seems to be more rampant. When we see each other as individuals, we are more understanding and accepting of one another. Save money, skip the wall and the military parade. This president is feeding on divisiveness. Some citizens are unfortunately responding by falling to that level, using emotional reactions instead of thought and reason. We should discuss differences and find compromise, try to see other points of view. To me, being a democrat means being inclusive, respecting one another, ensuring everyone has the opportunity to make a better life, and protecting the earth and its limited resources for future generations. Our Constitution is a living document that has been adapted to changing times, it lays out three branches of government, ensuring that no one has too much power, and stipulates that these rights and responsibilities apply to all of us.

POLLINATORS: Kanabec clubs plant plots for bees, bugs FROM PAGE 1

April, they focused on butterflies and built butterfly houses. A third session will be on Sunday, May 20. A fourth one will be on June 2, when Porter and Harris will hold a day-long wildlife workshop that will include time spent with Betty Wilkens who is working on establishing native grasslands along the Knife River. Finally, they will help with the seeding of the pollinator plot. The objectives of the Pheasants Forever Pollinator Habitat Program are to increase awareness about declining pollinator populations, educate the public on the importance of pollinator habitat and to establish quality pollinator habitat. This project will help birds and the many pollinators including bees, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, wasps, flies and beetles. Pheasants Forever has found that pollinator habitat is also excellent for pheasants, quail and grassland song birds. The native flowering plants attract soft-bodied insects that pheasant chicks, and other ground-nesting chicks, rely on for survival for the first 6-8 weeks of life. “This program gets kids outside doing things and it’s beneficial to the environment,” said Barnick. Joe Kohlgraf, Mora City Public Works director is helping to locate the

site(s) of the native grass and wildflower plantings. The project plan is to kill the existing vegetation with two sprayings by Scott Callander. The existing grass has to be tall enough in order to kill it. “If you do not kill off the existing vegetation first, it will come back and outcompete with the newly planted native wildflowers and grasses,” said Barnick. This project is funded 50:50 between the National Pheasants Forever and the Kanabec County Pheasants Forever Chapter. Projects must be a minimum of one-half acre in size and a minimum of a 20 foot strip. The pollinator seed mix must include a minimum of nine native wildflower species and at least three species need to bloom during each of three summer periods. “It was hoped that the project could be done this spring. However, with the late spring it may have to wait until late summer,” said Barnick. IMPORTANCE OF POLLINATORS The 4-Hers learned that pollinators are an essential link in global food production. Eighty-five percent of flowering plants, including many crops, need a pollinator to reproduce. Approximately one-third of food and beverage products need pollination, yet many species of native pollinators and domesticated bees are on the decline. Pollinators have been declining for several reasons according to Marla Spivak, director of the University of Minnesota Bee Lab. They include: the lack of a diversity of native flowering plants in ditches, field crops and lawn plants. Also, a lack

of nesting sites, use of insecticides, presence of parasites and diseases all create stress on bees and other pollinators. Two or more of these stressors at once can seriously affect bee survival. There is one honey bee specie in Minnesota and it is not native. However, there are 43 species of bumble bees which are better pollinators than honey bees. In total, there are over 400 species of native bees in Minnesota and over 4,000 in the U.S. Some species are wood-nesting bees and are solitary (living alone), often nesting in the pith of twigs or in beetle tunnels in standing dead trees. Others are ground-nesting solitary bees that construct tunnels underground. A third type are cavity-nesting social species like bumble bees that use abandoned rodent burrows. Grasses are also important for one genus of butterflies called grass skippers who build shelters in grass during their larvae stage. Most native bees are unlikely to sting. The yellowjackets and other wasps often seen hanging around picnics are not bees, nor are they significant pollinators. More information on pollinators can be found from: • Xerces Society – or • Natural Resource Conservation Service, USDA & Kanabec County SWCD - Contact the Mora office at 320-679-3781 • Minnesota Department of Agriculture – pollinators • University of Minnesota or Terry Salmela is a contributing writer for the Kanabec County Times and retired University of Minnesota Extension Educator.

CREATE A POLLINATOR PLOT Protecting, enhancing and providing habitat is the best way to improve the health, abundance and diversity of local pollinators. Creating and improving habitat for pollinators can be done on a larger scale like the Pheasants Forever project or it can be done on a smaller scale in ones own back yard. Follow these guidelines to create your own plot: 1. Kill the grass First, kill the existing vegetation by using an herbicide, or by covering the ground with a UV stabilized plastic for several months. Temperatures under the plastic have to rise enough to kill the existing vegetation. Then native grass and wildflowers can be seeded in early fall. 2. Create a diversity of bloom Bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects need abundant nectar and pollen sources throughout the growing season. Different types of bees prefer different flowers. Plant native wildflowers whenever possible with a variety of flower colors, shapes and bloom times. Ideally, try to have three species of flowers blooming each season and avoid pollenless cultivars and double-headed varieties of ornamental flowers. 3. Protect nests and egg-laying sites Native bees use open sandy ground, brush piles, old tree stumps and snags. Build mason bee houses or bundles of hollow plant stems and mount them in a tree near the garden or on fruit trees. Other pollinators like the caterpillars of monarch butterfly feed on milkweed species. 4. Don’t use pesticides Pesticides are important tools for protecting crops and controlling invasive species, however most lawn and garden pest problems can be solved without such chemicals. “Organic approved” insecticides (for insects) can harm pollinators and other wildlife. Herbicides (for weeds), while usually not directly lethal to insects can reduce plant diversity, including the weedy, noninvasive wildflowers that provide essential pollen and nectar for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. If you must use insecticides, choose targeted and least harmful formulations. Spray on dry evenings and after dark when bees are not active.

be hoping to make is drawing more of a crowd in for community events. “Whether that’s in the winter, when the ice is in here, or in the summer – this place was built as a community center, and I think that we can do a better job of getting more people in here for events.” Jesse says they’re still hammering out the long-term goals for the Civic Center, but one thing is clear: Jesse has a lot of pride in the facility, and everything it can potentially be. “This place was community built, it’s volunteer driven,” he said. “This place represents the resources we do have, and that’s people who care, and people who put that time and energy into things.” Jesse said there are always volunteer opportunities available. The next community-wide opportunity will be at the fall cleanup. More information is available at www.

God sings about you Before my son turned 1 (he is almost 11 now), I was pushing him in a cart through a Target store, singing him a song I was making up on the spot to keep him happy and engaged. I thought to myself “Before a child, I Focus on having would have been mortified to be Faith singing a song Kirk Knudsen like this while walking through a crowded store.” But sing I did, because I love him and he’s my child, and because I didn’t want to be pushing a screaming baby through Target. My kids are my delight. My heart sings about them; occasionally my mouth does, too. Despite our whining, wandering, trouble, resistance, exhaustion and doubts, God loves us and is intimately interested in all aspects of our lives, because he created us and we are his. You might not know this, but

God sings about you. Zephaniah is a short Bible book near the end of the Old Testament. I encourage you to read it this week (it is only three chapters). In Zephaniah’s day, national and local leadership were failing the people and utterly rejecting God. God’s word was disparaged, and even his followers didn’t know what it said. Religious and political leaders were abusing power, exploiting people, and practicing rampant fraud. People were refusing God or apathetic towards him. In that mix, God delivered a message: God would deal with the evil in Judah and the surrounding nations, but those who trusted in the Lord, drew near to him, and received his correction had hope for restoration, redemption and a better future. A future where God says (Zephaniah 3:17 ESV): “The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” When we feel alone, God as-


sures us he is in our midst. When we feel like there is no help for us and our mistakes, God proclaims he is mighty to save us. When our hearts are loud with anxiousness at our world’s chaos, difficulty and uncertainties, God quiets us with his love. When we doubt our lovability, our worthiness or life’s meaning, God loudly sings about us. He invites the world to hear him. The one who exacts his will just as he desires sings about you. His song reminds us that we don’t need to be sufficient, or heroic, or perfect, because Jesus is all of that and more for us. God is all you need and his child is all you need to be. God cares about you, loves you, is present with you and finds joy in relating with you. Seek his presence in the everyday stuff you do and do it remembering he is paying attention and he delights in you, not for what you do, but because you are his. God sings about you. Pastor Kirk Knudsen is the lead pastor at Trio Community Church in Mora.

Grants available for groups that help more people hunt, fish BY MN DNR

Grants are available for groups that help more people hunt and fish through a program that, so far, has funded 34 projects ranging from an outdoor adventure club at Roseville Area High School to classes for the Fairmont community that get friends and family fishing together. “We’re excited about being able to continue this grant program that aims to help groups get more people hunting and fishing, and ultimately supporting conservation,” said Jeff Ledermann, education and skills team supervisor

with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The grants are a response to an ongoing issue: While anglers still cast lines and hunters head to deer camp each year, the percentage of Minnesotans who hunt or fish is shrinking. The DNR gives priority to programs for new and diverse audiences and those with an ongoing impact rather than one-time events. Types of activities could include fishing and hunting educational programs, clinics, workshops and camps, and funding for fishing and hunting equipment and transportation.

“The grant program has been very competitive over the first three rounds, with a total of almost 100 applicants,” Ledermann said. “The groups we chose shared a commitment to ongoing support for helping people enjoy the outdoors through hunting or fishing.” Groups must apply for this round of grants by June 28. The grant program began in 2015 and this is the fourth round of grants. In this round, awards will range from $5,000 to $49,999 with a total amount of $150,000 available. Fourth-round projects must be completed in Minnesota and be finished by Dec. 31, 2019.

FirstLight Wellness Center prepares for grand opening BY KIRSTEN FAURIE EDITOR@MORAMINN.COM

While the Mora School District and FirstLight Health System make preparations for the grand opening of the newly constructed FirstLight Wellness Center, athletes and members of the public have already been making frequent use of the facility. Mora sports teams have practiced indoors and allowed Mora to host a handful of indoor track meets and tennis matches. Meanwhile, moms and toddlers have used the facility to get their steps in and stretch their legs when outdoor weather was less than cooperative. Mora Public Schools and FirstLight Health System partnered to build the structure. Construction began in the summer of 2017 and it opened for use in March 2018. The approximately 54,000 foot structure can fit four basketball courts and includes an elevated walking track that is open for use to members of the public. Users must pay a $25 annual membership fee in order to access the track. The fee covers the cost of a background check and membership card. The center’s grand opening celebration will take place from 4:15 p.m.-8 p.m. May 23 at 200 N 9th street, Mora. Kirsten Faurie is the editor of the Kanabec County Times.


When the weather outside was cold and rainy, these women and their children walked laps around the FirstLight Wellness Center’s elevated walking track. It takes 6.5-7 laps around the track to equal a mile.

Lions baseball makes up for lost time BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM


Junior Jake Felde makes it home in the first inning of the second game in a double header against Onamia on May 10.

The Ogilvie Lions baseball team waited a long time for snow to recede before taking the field. Now able to practice outside, the players are building both skills and confidence. “I think I counted that we had 25 indoor practices. We only had one outdoor practice before we had to take the field and show what we know,” said head coach Benji Besser. “We were supposed to play our first game on Tuesday, April 3, but we didn’t play it until Thursday, May 3.” “We were the last team in the state to play a game. Most of the teams we’re playing had seven to 10 games by then. We opened the season with a double-header against a very tough Braham team, and we were able to stay right there with them.” After 10 games the Lions hold a 2-8 record, fifth place in Section 5A East and seventh in the Great River Conference. Besser said a strength of the Lions team is how players step up to try their hand at pitching, something they haven’t had the past two seasons. “We have three very strong junior starters: Logan Peterson, Alex Chidester and Jake Felde,” he said, “plus sophomore Brian Nelson and freshman Beau Burk who’ve surpassed expectations. These

two didn’t start with the confidence that a pitcher probably should have, but they went up there and got the job done.” Making up for lost time has created a challenge for the Lions, according to Besser. “We play six games the week of May 14. We don’t have time to sit and reflect on how the last game went; we have to get out there and play the next game. We don’t have the time to process, and the same things keep happening. Section results will be hard to predict, but we may get a couple of wins if we come out with a winning mindset.” “Making one error can lead to five, and giving up one run can lead to six. We work on showing the guys to play without emotion, that one mistake doesn’t need to lead to more. Bad things happen, and it’s how you react to it. It’s a life skill, not just in baseball.” The Lions host Section rival East Central on Thursday, May 17, then travel to Barnum on Friday, May 18. They host a double-header against Schaefer Academy on Saturday, May 19, and travel to St. John’s Prep on Monday, May 21 to close out the regular season. Section 5A playoff begins on Tuesday, June 5.

Mustangs look to minimize mistakes BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM

After strength conditioning drills in the new FirstLight Community Wellness Center, and batting and fielding practice in the Mora Civic Center, the Mora Mustangs are more than ready to take it outdoors and make up for lost time. “We had only two outdoor practices before we started playing games,” said head coach Jayson Pautzke. “We get springs like this every three to five years. But every team in the state went through pretty much the same thing.” The Mustangs hold a 5-8 record after 13 games, third place in Section 7AA Subsection 1 and sixth in the Granite Ridge Conference. After sweeping a double-header on May 11 against Milaca, the Mustangs fell to a strong Duluth Marshall team on Saturday, May 12, losing


Senior Logan Graves sliding safe into third base during a double header against Milaca on May 11. 12-1 in five innings. “Marshall is one of the top five teams in the state. They won the Section last year,” Pautzke said. “We haven’t played up to our capabilities yet, in my opinion. I’m not sure if it’s the lack of outdoor prac-

tices, but we haven’t pitched or played defense as well as we thought we would.” “Offensively we’ve been all right. Senior Noah Foster is hitting well over .500; he’s had a standout season so far. But we make too many mistakes in

the field. We practiced outdoors a couple times this week and focused on defense. Hopefully we can get things going in the right direction.” Pautzke believes it’s hard to tell who Mora may face in the first round of Section playoffs.

“There are a lot of games to be played before the final seedings come out on May 26,” he said. “Obviously Marshall will be the team to beat; Proctor and Esko are very good as well. The four of us are probably the best teams in the Section. But even if we don’t win, I just want us to play good baseball.” “It’s been a grind. We’ve played 13 games since April 26. We’ve played four double-headers; Friday, May 11 was the last one. That makes for some long days. We’ve got to be mentally tough to stay sharp.” The Mustangs host GRC rival Zimmerman on Thursday, May 17.

demographic in the hunting and fishing industries. Manufacturers and retailers have taken notice. Julie said in the last year four boat manufacturers contacted WAM asking to sponsor their organization and tournaments. Still, sometimes the women do need help — that’s where WAM comes in to help. Julie said that for women who begin fishing independently, their biggest challenge is often the boat. “I’ve done many seminars through the years on how to back up a trailer,” Julie said. Still, it’s a skill that takes practice and a busy public boat access can cause stress to even the most skilled boater. “It is so intimidating to go to a landing where there are 10 boats in line and you have never done it before,” Julie said. Sometimes, mistakes happen. Julie recalled a WAM fishing trip in which a boat wasn’t properly secured to the trailer. At the landing the boat fell off the back of the trailer and onto the pavement. Fueled by adrenaline, all the women rushed forward and together they were able lift the boat back onto its trailer. Just like lifting the boat, these women lift and support each other. A members only Facebook group acts as a forum for the women to ask each other for tips, advice and arrange fishing trips. Members frequently post that they are headed to the lake and they have an open spot in the boat if anyone wants to join. Many choose to avoid the hassle and

maintenance of a boat by fishing from shore or going ice fishing in the winter. In fact, that’s where Julie spent her opening fishing weekend, casting into Knife Lake where she caught a crappie over 13 inches long. Julie contributed her love for fishing to her dad. When she was young, he owned his own business which meant his time was often spent working. “Any time with dad was precious time,” Julie recalled. When they went fishing and hunting together, that was special time they had together without distraction. Fishing became where Julie finds peace, calm and happiness. “It’s my zen to be on water,” she said. Julie laughed as she recalled one of her favorite fishing adages: “It’s better to sit in a boat and think about God than sit in church and think about fishing.” But Julie also has a competitive edge. She loves to compete and the WAM fishing tournaments are a major perk of her club membership. WAM arranges women’s only fishing tournaments in the summer and winter, and has partnered with Wisconsin Women Fish to provide a group fishing trip in Canada. Julie first learned about WAM at a sportsman’s trade show and joined. Later, Julie served as WAM’s president for about 10 years. She said the organization is getting big — and fast. Her favoritve part of WAM? “The camaraderie is amazing.” For more information on Women Anglers of Minnesota, visit Kirsten Faurie is the editor of the Kanabec County Times.

Mustang softball prepares for postseason play BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM

With well-timed wins at the end of the season, the Mora Mustangs softball team prepares for the postseason against a strong Section 7AA field. After 16 games Mora holds a 7-9 record, fifth place in both the Granite Ridge Conference and Section 7AA Subsection 1. Last season they finished 9-12, fourth place in the subsection and seventh in the GRC. They beat Aitkin in the first round of Section playoffs, but lost to Virginia and Moose Lake-Willow River.

On Wednesday, May 9 the Mustangs defeated longtime Section rival Pine City, 16-1 in four innings.

Peter Nordquist informs us that one of his broodmares dropped a colt a week ago that for size it is hard to find its equal. When born it stood over three feet high and measured 11 inches across the chest. The colt is an English Shire Grade. J. C. Morrison, our immigration agent has sold so far this month four 40s of railroad land to four actual settlers, who will cultivate the same with all possible speed. Let them come make our county what it is adapted to--an A-1 farming country. Life insurance agents are getting more numerous than greenbacks. Superintendent Sundeen was visiting schools in the southern part of the county this week. Immigrants to the number of 23 persons landed here last week direct from Sweden. N. H. Danforth has replaced the old fence around his barnyard with a new and handsomer one. Auditor Norum is kept busy at work these days preparing a list of the lands to be resold for delinquent taxes. Those towns that are making the greatest progress nowadays are the towns which are giving the best inducements to manufacturing industries to locate within them. A well-known lumberman told the writer not long ago that there is double the profit in manufacturing logs into lumber than there is in selling the lumber in the logs.

There is no doubt of it. 100 YEARS AGO (1918) “Ogilvie Dramatic Club:” The Ogilvie Dramatic Club will present “Claim Allowed” a story of Profits and Patriotism at the Mora High School Auditorium at 8:30 p.m. Thursday night, May 16th. This is given for the benefit of the Red Cross and the proceeds will be divided 50-50 with the Mora and Ogilvie Chapters. The admission will be 25 and 35 cents. Everybody should turn out and help the good work along and at the same time see a good entertainment. 75 YEARS AGO (1943) “Car Is Wrecked On Mora Railroad Crossing:” A group of three St. Paul fishermen who had returned from a Mille Lacs Lake fishing trip late Saturday night, had a car smashup at the railroad crossing in Mora. As they approached the crossing from the south, seeing the blinking of the signal light for an approaching train, the driver jammed on the brakes of the car, causing it to swerve to the left into the ditch adjoining the track, close enough to the rails to be hit by the approaching train. The occupants left the car before the train reached it. “Local Air Patrol Searches For Boat:” 2nd Lt. John T. Barnes, with Pvt. Gerald Quick as observer, of the Civil Air Patrol, were called out on a search mission Tuesday afternoon in an effort to locate a boat which was lost during the storm last Saturday at Mille Lacs Lake. They searched the vicinity of Spirit Island in Mr. Barnes’ plane, but were unable to locate any trace of the boat. Mr. Barnes reported that the lake there was so clear they could see the hills and valleys under the surface of the water, and pick out individual rocks on the bottom, even a turtle swimming, from an altitude of 1,000 feet. The search was made under official orders from the operations officer of Squadron 715-1 at St. Cloud. Others from Mora and vicinity who are members of the Civil Air Patrol are Eugene Hageman, private, and Leo Kaas, private first class and squad leader. They are training now for forest fire patrol, and if the fire situation is bad in Kanabec County, as well as northern Minnesota, then this area will be patrolled by the Civil Air Patrol. 50 YEARS AGO (1968) “20 Cent Wash Sold to Vayder And Wahlstrom:” Dave Vayer and

Ellsworth Wahlstrom have purchased the 20 Cent Wash in Mora from Melvin Olson of rural North Branch. The 20 Cent Wash will be closed beginning Monday for a period of about three days for remodeling, redecorating and installing new equipment. “2 Break-Ins Made at Grasston:” The Grasston school and the Grasston Co-op Creamery were broken into Sunday night. Entrance was gained by prying open a door at each place. An old safe at the school was rifled and the thieves got about $40 there. They missed the money at the creamery but took a small radio. Similar break-ins were made at Esko and another was attempted at Cambridge the same night. Sheriff George Anderson said that he is not sure if it was the same party or parties but his department is investigating.

25 YEARS AGO (1993) “Hospital sale, lease debated:” Who will own and have final decision making authority at Kanabec Hospital is at the heart of a current debate between the hospital board and the Kanabec County Board of Commissioners. One of the concerns which develops from the hospital being a county hospital is that salaries must be approved by the county board. Hospital Administrator John Kayfes and the hospital board want to be sure that salaries are compatible with the industry in the area. They maintain that appropriate salaries are needed to maintain employees with the skill levels needed. County commissioners, on the other hand, are concerned about giving salary increases that are greater than what is given to county employees. “Mora-Ogilvie baseball team crushes Foley 15-0:” The Mora-Ogilvie baseball team captured their third conference win of the year to go three and four in conference play. The News From Yesteryear is compiled by Matt Anderson from the Times historical editions housed by the Kanabec History Center. The “News from Yesteryear” contains articles published in historic issues of the Times. The articles may contain language with ethnic and racial prejudices that were once common but are no longer acceptable in today’s society. These articles are being presented as they were originally published.

MORA OGILVIE Grade 12 Grade 2 Ben Aas has been selected from Ms. Erickson’s classroom for Making Us Proud. Ben is a great role model for his peers throughout the school day. He was selected because he follows the rules, listens to directions the first time and uses his time in a smart way. When Ben is asked to complete a task, he is able to finish it in a timely manner and to the best of his abilities. Ben has a passion for math and loves to share his excitement with classmates. Another awesome quality that Ben has is always putting other people’s needs before his own. He is truly a great role model, friend and student here at Ogilvie.

Ben Aas

Kaylee Sundermeyer is making us proud in second grade! She comes to school each day with a bright smile. Her love for learning is contagious. In our class we often work in groups on various projects or lessons. Kaylee is always very willing to help others. We are so happy to have you as a part of our classroom family Kaylee! Thank you for being such a positive role model!

MHS senior, Kathryn Sager, is the daughter of Brian and Jenny Masterson. Ms. Blenkush, MHS College English teacher says, “As a teacher of senior students, I often reflect on the skills they will need the most when they leave this building. As an English teacher, I would like to claim that if they are good writers, speakers and readers, they will be successful. Although this is true, perhaps some of the more “life skills” of perseverance, respect for self and others and integrity are really the essential skills students need for post-secondary education and the world of work. Katie Sager is a student who has all these skills. She has the ability to write clearly, speak knowledgeably and read closely. But she does all these things with a sense of purpose. Katie values her education, takes ownership of her learning and knows how to ask for help when she needs it. Such are the characteristics of a true student.” You make us proud, Katie!

According to Mr. Carlstrom, MHS Physics teacher, “I would like to take this opportunity to recognize Logan Graves. It has been a great pleasure to have Logan in my class this year. He is an excellent student and has demonstrated a strong academic and personal understanding in not only mine, but all subject areas. He is also very interested and involved in every aspect of Mora Schools. “Logan always gives his very best at everything everyday. Logan’s insightful comments and his commitment to hard work and strong academics make him a great model of what being a PAR student should be. He is a wonderful example to all his classmates of what it is to truly be a Mora Mustang!” Logan is the son of Ross and Kristin Graves. Way to go, Logan!

Gary L. Cross Gary L. Cross died on Friday, May 11, 2018 at his home in Mora. He was 65 years old. For service information please visit A full obituary will follow. Arrangements by Dresser-Methven Funeral Home.

Edwin I. Bossen Edwin I. Bossen of Onamia died on Saturday, May 5, 2018, at Mille Lacs Long Term Care. He was 96 years old. He was born on July 27, 1921, the first child of Henry and Amelia (Scheidt) Bossen in Beulah, North Dakota. At the age of 2, his family moved to a farm near Hinckley. He attended school in Hincklley, graduating in 1939. H He completed Teacher T Training College in St. C Cloud and taught first tthrough eighth grade in H Hinckley for one year b before leaving to join the U U.S. Army in August of 11942. Life in the Army b brought him to North A Africa and eventually to tthe European Theatre. W While there, he served in IItaly, France, Rhineland a and in the Central Europe Campaigns. He was a cook and also manned anti-aircraft spotlights. He was discharged in October of 1945. He returned home to Minnesota and entered into a partnership with his only sibling, Marvin, establishing Bossen Brother’s Poultry Farm in rural Kanabec County. At a Grange Dance in 1947 he met a school teacher, Miss Lila Roberts. They were united in marriage in 1950. Their three children, Larry, Dale and Karen, were born and raised at the farm. He and his wife continued to farm until 1970, when he began his next career as a carpenter and handyman. For the next 31 years, they spent their winters in Desert Hot Springs, California and summers in Isle working odd jobs year round to keep busy and help people. His greatest pleasures were his hobbies of fishing, playing cards, dancing, visiting friends, working in his wood shop and tending his garden and fruit trees. He and his wife also loved to travel, driving to and from California for many years, visiting friends and relatives along the way. Annual canoe trips to the Boundary Waters with his sons provided many precious memories. At the age of 90, he traveled with the Honor Flight organization to visit the WWII Memorial in Washington DC. He was a member of Ogilvie United Methodist Church, Isle VFW, active in his community and with his church, always ready to do whatever needed to be done. When declining health forced them to stop “snowbirding” they settled into an apartment in Isle and later assisted living in Onamia before finally entering the long term care where he was lovingly attended to for two years and five days. He was slow to anger, quick witted and one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He was preceded in death by parents, wife Lila and brother Marvin. He is survived by children, Larry of Pine City; Dale (Carolyn Mumert) Bossen of Maple Grove, Karen (Roger) Tramm of Isle; grandchildren, Rob(DeeDee) Bossen, Corey(Sara) Tramm, Jay (Kellie) Bossen, Seth(Sara) Tramm, Deidre (Sean) Wade and Tyler Tramm; great-grandchildren, Brynn and Josie Bossen, Elijah and Asher Tramm, Tessa, Isaiah and Micah Tramm, James and Jase Bossen and Isabella Tramm; sisters-in law, Dorothy Millam and Verna Bossen; and many nieces, nephews and friends. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 19, 2018, at the Isle Baptist Church with Rev. Nicholas Skogen. Memorial visitation will be held one hour prior to the service at the church. Music will be provided by Marlene Moss, Lavonne Heise and the Tramm Family. Inurnment will be in the State Veterans Cemetery at Little Falls. Arrangements are by the Akkerman Ingebrand Funeral Home of Mora. Condolences may be posted at
