It’s great that our schools
support shooting sports

It is great news for gun safety instruction, public awareness of the shooting sports and America’s outdoor heritage that both the Northland Pines and Three Lakes school districts will soon have a school-sanctioned trapshooting club.

 

Pines has had such a club for a couple of years now, overseen by tech-ed teacher and shooting coach Tim Lehman. That program, the first in the area, is open to both middle school and high school students.

 

The Three Lakes School Board approved the formation of a trapshooting club last month,

Past concerns still valid for more piers at lodge

Letter to the Editor:

Additional piers would be detrimental to Chain

Letter to the Editor:

Lakefront property owners have been informed that Wild Eagle Lodge on Duck Lake is again requesting a permit to install additional boat slips.

Many people will remember the destruction to the shoreline affected by the previous owners and management of Wild Eagle Lodge. The current owners didn’t do that and they will ask us to factor that into our communal contemplation of this resubmitted request. We cannot in good conscience do that, as it is not relevant nor will it prevent the damage to the public interest and navigational difficulties that will certainly ensue if this project is approved.
