Mentzer Trail utilities extension engineer study accepted by council
On the shore of South Lindstrom Lake it wouldn’t be overly dramatic to say there’s been a situation in the vicinity of Mentzer Trail.  There are 22 wastewater systems that the county reportedly identifies as functioning in an “unknown” manner, there are four parcels that have no sewer system at all;  seven homesites use a holding tank and 22 have a mound system.  According to the feasibility study for a project to extend city sewer out into the township, on Mentzer,  there are also 12 vacant lots.

Ki Chi Saga Days was awesome, hands free - a work in progress
What a great weekend for Ki Chi Saga Days!  Other than a little wind late on Saturday night, it was absolutely beautiful.  I spent a lot of time up town enjoying the festivities and there were people everywhere.  Sunday we had a nice breeze for the parade which is normally a scorcher, so that was great.

Try one of these mini recipes
If you are cooking for one, two or three people, you may wonder how much to prepare for a meal to serve four or more. Many recipes are easy to double or triple the ingredients. Cooking for two can mean trying new recipes, down-sizing the amount of ingredients used or increasing the amount for a larger amount of people you serve. But you know that already don't you!

Kids enjoy Snake Discovery program at CL Library
Emily Roberts brought her Snake Discovery (snakediscovery.com) program to the Chisago Lakes Area Library August 9.  Kids and adults learned all about amphibians and reptiles, including a turtle --when put on its shell--would flip back onto its feet. You could also hold a gecko, and various types of snakes. Even the librarian, top photo, got into the thick of things and helped youngsters to hold a snake.

MN PUC okays electric territory swap for ECE
Some 40 years ago state officials divided up service areas for electrical systems in Minnesota-- and East Central Electric and North Branch Water & Light have co-existed ever since. When a building development comes in and it makes more sense to switch service areas, the two utilities will sit down and work things out and that’s what’s happening for the new addition to the Lucht’s Crossing housing plat.

Threshing Show is here already, come out to support a great cause
Well if you are like me, this whole hands-free thing is a major change in life. Of course it’s a great law and should have been implemented years ago, but yet I am still having a bit of a time adjusting.  I was never a text and drive person, but I certainly was a read a text person (I know it’s just as bad).

Making the most of zucchini
It's zucchini season, and time to make the most of this veggie that grows so quickly. If you have zucchini plants in your garden you know you have to be watchful of how fast they grow. One of our sons has a garden and grows zucchini, just two plants this year, and I told him he had better have his neighbor check the garden as they were going to be gone three days. Sure enough, he came home to zucchini that were about a foot long and round as a softball. So much for that!

Local farmer finds solar 'crop' keeps pollinators happy
In any given day a farmer  may need to be a mechanic, a welder, chemist or a carpenter, or maybe even invent a piece of equipment...whatever it takes to get the job done. Rural Center City farmer Keith Johnson has somehow found a way to squeeze environmentalist into his litany of skills to get the job done.  In this case the job is to boost pollinator numbers.
