Somebody went through- Moore Lake

7 posts in this topic

in Fridley. Went to check it out during my lunch break. Apparently, somebody has been missing for 5 days, and some gloves, hat, fishing license was found on the ice. There is a chopper, news crew, rescue workers everywhere.

Thats too bad. Ice is never safe, be careful out there everybody.

I just talked to a guy at work and he said the news this morning was saying it was a possible suicide.

Always a horrible story when someone looses their life on the ice. Correct me if I'm wrong, but but I think Moore Lake usually has an area of thin or no ice due to an aerator. All the more reason to be careful out there...

There is an aerator and its clearly marked with thin ice signs. When they fish out there they try to get as close to the open water as possible and its really dangerous when they do that.

My grandma's brother passed away in that lake when they were swimming out there 55 years ago. It happened in the summer though, just became overwhelmed or something.

Never a good story when someone loses a life on the ice.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
