The Highway 61 earth moving equipment you may have observed, is not initiating a housing project— it is wetland restoration work.  Contractors will re-grade and improve the hydrology in the area between the Heims Lake outlet and the wetland east of Highway 61 connected to Comfort Lake-Sunrise River. 

Come out to the Celebration of the Lakes on February 9-12 for some chilly fun!

Chisago Lakes loses triangular to some of the top teams in the area

The Wildcats hosted a triangular meet last Thursday, January 19 at Chisago Lakes High School.  They lost both of their matches by wide margins, falling to Big Lake 55-24 and succumbing to Forest Lake 51-18.  The next night , the Wildcats lost a home dual to St. Francis 60-15.  Andrew Novack was the only Wildcat wrestler to go undefeated in the three duals, and won two of his matches by first period pins.  Wildcat sophomore Logan Bender, ranked fourth in the state at 195 pounds in Class AA, had matchups against two other ranked wrestlers.  Against Forest Lake, Bender moved up to 220 to take on junior Mark Rendl, ranked second in the state in Class AAA at 220.  Rendl pinned Bender with four seconds left in the first period.  Bender moved back down to 195 the next night to go up against Bo Flagstad of St Francis, ranked fifth in that state.  Flagstad came out on top with a pin at the five minute mark.

Joseph E. Gillach

The self-described “luckiest man on earth,” Joseph Edward Gillach, died of old age on December 21, the winter solstice, at age 94, at home, with his children by his side. Always closely attuned to his body and spirit, at Thanksgiving he told his family he would be Gone to Glory, the Gillach term for dying, by Christmas despite few outward indications that he was in failing health.
