Got out this afternoon to try out the new (to me) boat. Caught some crappies and bluegills in six feet of water on a quiver jig and minnow. An old problem came up again today. Last fall my rear driver's side wheel would heat up and it smelled like burning rubber. I thought it was my emergency brake 'cause it seemed ot happen after I had used it. Replaced the brakes and thought it was taken care of. Any clues on what this might be? I have a two wheel drive Ford Ranger.

I had this type of problem on my old chevy. The problem was in the e-brake cable adn the brake tensioner(SP). When you go backwards in reverse it actually adjust your brakes on some models of vehicles. WHat you could try and to is acutually temporariy unhook the e-brake cable to that wheel, it is a cable with a little ball at the end that you can pull out of the locking mechanisim. try this and see if this helps. I had to eventually replace the whole cble.It wasn't to spendy because it was on the slave side. From your ebrake lever the line goes back directly to one tire, then in the middle a slave will hook up. Good Luck. Hope this helps you.

Thanks Paul. We got under the truck this morning and the rubber on the e-brake cabel was worn to the metal case. had to lean into it to get the cable to move. Replaced it and hopefully, problem solved. Thanks again.

      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.
