See conservation through a youthful and local lens
If she’d been born a musician, then Cadence Eischens would no doubt be writing songs for i-Tunes or YouTube spreading an activist message about conservation. But, she’s a photographer.  So she uses images, to show people just how key it is to support all things in the natural world.

Center City Council hears request from bars for docking expansion
Three bar-restaurant owners approached the Center City Council last week to see if the city would consider purchasing dockage, providing boaters space on North Center Lake, to tie-up within walking distance of the business district.  The city provides a small dock for tie-ups, which was donated by Jill Behnke and there’s also  a larger wood fishing pier on that end of the lake--not suitable for docking-- provided through a MN Department of Natural Resources pier grant program.  Boaters are also allowed to beach their craft on the shoreline.

Uggh more snow, Vikings trip to state was amazing, sub winners
Okay it's official - I am sick of the snow.  I have always been one that says I can take the snow but not the bitter cold temps.  My feelings are beginning to change.  It is one storm after another.  Now they say we are possibly going to have thunderstorms this week on top of all the snow? Someone is not happy with us.  Last week I wrote about bringing my ice auger for the May fishing opener, I have changed my thoughts about the opener. I may just fish off the ark or at the very least off the top of my house.

Good for you, great tasting too

I am going to give you recipes using sweet potatoes today. This great-tasting, good-for-you veggie can be used in many ways, as in boiling, baking, frying or microwaving. They freeze well after being cooked, and don't put them in the fridge unless they are cooked. They get an A+ in nutrition. One medium sweet potato provides about 135 percent of the recommended vitamin A, more vitamin C than a tomato, plus vitamin E, B-12, potassium, fiber and just a trace of fat. All of this with only 130 calories.

Snow, snow oh no... Chisago Lakes Home show is coming
I can't believe I am sitting here looking out the window at yet even more snow and more to come, like three more rounds still.  I have long told people that I don't mind the snow, it’s the bitter cold I can't stand.  I still stand by what I say, but trying to find somewhere to throw the freshly shoveled snow is starting to hit a nerve.
