I know I could post this in the "job forum" but I think going directly to the GR forum will speed up my response.

Heres what I'm looking for. I have an older brother that has an unbelievable wealth of knowledge in the retail hunting/fishing industry and is wanting to move to GR soon. He has been selling guns, archery, fishing equipment and many other products in the outdoors and I think he would be very usefull as a "rep" for some company or business in that area. Very personalble and hard working. I am sending this out because he doesn't have internet access and I do. So any good leads or companies that IS looking or maybe is a great place to work would be very valuable. If you would like to email me directly you can. Thanks in advance for any help.

Must be chaos in a town of about 8,000 with 1,000 people looking for jobs in it.

Good Luck!!!

My 19 year old son and I are both out of work here in the Grand Rapids area

With Amesworth closing down. Nearly 300 people got layed off from there. Then you start to see the snowball effect. Loggers who cut tree's for the board plant, the truckers who hauled it, the equipment dealer who serviced and sold the machinery, trucks and other things needed to conduct business. The cafes, gas stations who have lost business. the banks who are getting boats, snowmobiles, atv's, homes back.

The slow, no snow winter, which has had little to no snowmobiliers from the twin cities here. The slow build up of ice on area lakes, that kept people from comming up ice fishing.

I have lived here for the better part of 20 years and have NEVER seen it this tough.

Sad deal

Maybe not the exact field you are looking for, but I do know Hibbing Tac & Keewatin Tac are doing some limited hiring. Good pay, probably shift work, good benifits. It's a start, eh? You can fill out the applications online also. Good Luck!

Later............Dugan!!!

Multiply the layoffs this year by 100 and you have the rest of the range over the last 40 years. I grew up there and left to go to college. Nice place but not a lot of high-paying jobs.

You should have your brother call Ben's Bait and shoot the bull with him for a while. Maybe he has heard of some people who would give him a try.

Hey, not to hijack, but is that tax free development stuff helping out up there or not? I always see that when I drive into town....

      I have a couple Garmins and I like them a lot, especially the new touchscreen.

      So any idea how far along the lakes are to opening up. Headed that way first weekend of May.

      Volk, a community prevention specialist for the state Department of Human Services and also a member of the Lincoln city council, asked to put to rest a rumor that he snagged the fish. He hooked the fish in the mouth, he said, and it wrapped itself in line as it fought. The mouth hook was certified by Game and Fish, Volk said. A snagged fish would not count as a record.
    • eyeguy 54
      where are these videos? Game and fish said not snagged. hmmmm.

      Cube the breast meat, and marinate it in buttermilk overnight, then dredge it in whatever you use to fry fish, and pan fry it until golden brown.  I like to use peanut oil, because you can get it really hot. You only need a half inch or so of oil in the pan, they fry up quickly. Very good, and I have tried it many ways. You could trim out the dark meat, and do it the same way.

      Definitely a huge fish. I don’t know if it was snagged or not but there are a couple videos that look like a hook being removed from the back of the fish. Kind of tough to tell for sure from the videos though. If you go to the ND game and fish Facebook page you can find them.

      Warm temperatures and dry conditions mean increased wildfire risk, so the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will restrict open burning in the following counties effective immediately: Anoka, Benton, Chisago, Douglas, Grant, Hennepin, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Pope, Ramsey, Sherburne, Stearns, Stevens, Todd, Traverse, Washington, and Wright.  The state will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste in these counties until restrictions are lifted. “Escaped debris burns are the number one cause of wildfires, so that’s why we issue these restrictions,” said Casey McCoy, DNR fire prevention supervisor. “They really work—we’ve reduced wildfires by nearly a third since we started spring burning restrictions in 2001.” McCoy encourages residents to use alternatives to burning, such as composting, chipping, or taking brush to a collection site. For information on how to compost yard debris, visit the DNR’s guide to composting yard debris. People who burn debris will be held financially responsible if their fire escapes and burns other property. Burning restrictions will be adjusted, including extension of restrictions to additional counties, as conditions change. For information and daily updates on current fire risk and open burning restrictions, visit the Minnesota DNR website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Flying a drone can be a lot of fun—but it can be downright dangerous during a wildfire, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Most people wouldn’t dream of driving their car in front of a fire engine that’s responding to a fire,” said Casey McCoy, the DNR’s fire prevention supervisor. “Flying your drone during a wildfire is just as reckless: we have to ground our planes until the drone gets out of the way, and that slows down our ability to fight the fire.” This happened last year during a wildfire in Little Falls: DNR pilots had to land firefighting helicopters because a drone was buzzing overhead. According to McCoy, “interfering with fire operations in this way is dangerous for our aircraft, firefighters on the ground, and the general public.” The reason drones pose such a problem is because they fly at roughly the same altitude as wildfire suppression aircraft. Even a small drone can cause a fire-fighting helicopter to crash if the drone makes contact with the aircraft. Flying a drone over a wildfire isn’t just dangerous, it’s illegal: Federal law prohibits interfering with firefighting operations, and that includes flying a drone over a wildfire. To protect firefighting aircraft, temporary flight restrictions may extend over a 5-mile radius of a wildfire. Even if temporary flight restrictions are not in place, people will be penalized if their drone is caught near a wildfire. Be fire wise and fire safe. No photo or video is worth the risk. Drop the drone near all wildfires. For more information about drones and wildfires, log onto the National Interagency Fire Center. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
