Snowarama for Easter Seals at the Grand Portage Lodge and Casino is in its 14th year. To celebrate the 14th year of Snowarama in Grand Portage, for every $100 a rider earns, he or she will have a chance in a drawing of 14 prizes, including a trip to Las Vegas! 

In addition to great prizes the event includes a day of great riding on Grand Portage trails, there is a bonfire at the Mineral Center trailhead, a complimentary dinner at the Grand Portage Community Center, and Saturday night entertainment.

Funds raised at the event help provide financial assistance for essential mobility and communication equipment and fully accessible summer camping opportunities.

Rhonda Silence finds out more about the event – and what it means to the children and families it benefits.

Fire destroys boiler control room at Hedstrom Lumber

Wed, 02/08/2017 - 9:55am
feedsetimg.jpeg

Cook County Law Enforcement received a 9-1-1 call reporting a fire at Hedstrom Lumber Company just before 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 4. The caller said the fire was in a control room located inside the lumber mill’s boiler building.

The Maple Hill, Gunflint and Grand Marais Fire Departments and the Cook County Ambulance responded, with the Maple Hill Fire Department on scene by 4:49 p.m.

The fire was knocked down quickly and all fire departments were clear of the scene by 6:41 p.m.

Hedstrom Lumber President Howard Hedstrom said damage was confined to the control room. The structure of the boiler building is intact, but the high heat destroyed electrical equipment and piping.

Since the fire, Hedstrom Lumber staff have been working to drain the pipes that transport steam from the boiler to the entire lumber mill complex, including the saw mill, planing mill, chip plant and maintenance shop. A house on the property and the lumber mill office were also heated by the boiler and back-up heating systems were brought online.

Hedstrom said most of the necessary equipment needed to make repairs is on hand and it is hoped that the plant will have heat again and be back in operation by Thursday.

Hedstrom said the cause of the fire was undetermined, but it is believed that an errant spark ignited some scaffolding. Grand Marais Fire Chief Ben Silence requested that the State Fire Marshal be called because the fire was in a commercial building.

Hedstrom praised the local fire departments. He said, “They come and they know what to do. They do it quickly and professionally.”

Cleveland Cliffs burglary suspect found guilty

Fri, 02/03/2017 - 12:36pm
feedsetimg.jpeg

One of the people involved in a break-in and theft at Cliffs Mining in Schroeder in March 2016 has been found guilty in Cook County court.

On January 26, a jury in the Sixth District Court in Grand Marais found Madison Rose Vail, 23, of Lindstrom, Minnesota guilty of two counts of burglary, one count of criminal damage to property, and one count of receiving stolen property.

The charges against Vail stemmed from a report of trespassing by a Cleveland Cliffs staffer. Following that report, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office began surveillance of the property. On April 2, 2016 Sheriff Deputy Jesse Johnson saw two people in a van at the site. A search warrant was obtained and when the van was inspected, receipts were found from recycling centers for insulated wire, copper wire, and brass. Also found were hacksaws, headlamps and bolt cutters.

Vail and a companion, Alexander Gaiter Smith, 28, of St. Paul were arrested. A sentencing hearing for Vail will be held February 27. She could face up to 10 years incarceration and fines of up to $20,000.

Smith, who received similar charges, failed to appear at hearings in Cook County court in May, August and September 2016. A warrant has been issued for his arrest. If arrested, Smith will be held without chance of release on bail.

The former mining operation building has been shut down since 2001, but is monitored by Cleveland Cliffs staff.
A general manager for Cliffs Mining estimated the damage, which included areas where control panels were removed, wires stripped and walls graffitied. He estimated the damage to the property at “thousands of dollars.”
