Cell phone tower for Big Sandy

Wayne Alden and Dave Tjosvold have invested in a new cellular phone tower for the Big Sandy area.

It is being installed this week on the Jacobs property, on the south side of CSAH 14 near the Shamrock Cafe.

It will be 324 feet tall and they can enter into contracts with up to five cell phone providers.

The first contract signed is with RCC, or Cell 2000 that was bought by Verizon.

They intend to sign a contract with Cell 1/Cingular, which was purchased by AT & T.

"We're sure others will come on board," said Tjosvold.

He said the permit for the tower was approved by the Aitkin County Planning Commission. There was a room full of people at the hearing but no one spoke against the tower and Sheriff Scott Turner spoke in favor of it.

He said this tower will serve Big Sandy, Minnewawa, Horseshoe and Round lakes and anyone else within a seven mile radius of the site.

"They will have primary, excellent cell phone coverage," said Tjosvold.

The tower is up and the fence is going around it.

It should not be long before a dish is hung.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
