Cemetery expansion under way in Grand Marais

Tue, 11/08/2016 - 2:29pm
feedsetimg.jpeg

The peaceful little cemetery on the east side of Grand Marais, owned by St. John’s Catholic Church, is undergoing some clean-up and landscaping.
Father Seamus Walsh told WTIP that the trees and brush on the east side of the cemetery had begun encroaching on some graves and needed to be cleared back. At the same time the church is adding some cemetery plots.
Father Walsh said, “We decided to use all the land that the cemetery owns. The clearing goes to our boundary line.”
Father Walsh notes that the grounds look a bit rough now that the trees have been taken down but in coming weeks, stumps will be removed, soil will be brought in for fill and landscaping will begin. The church will erect a screening fence eventually.
The cemetery is primarily for St. John’s parishioners, but Father Walsh said it is also open to those with ties to the church.

feedsetimg.jpeg

A report of a possible missing person which came into the Cook County Sheriff’s Office at approximately 3 p.m., Monday, Nov. 7, initiated an investigation for a 59-year-old Duluth man on Pine Lake off of the Arrowhead Trail in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, north of Hovland, Minn.

Sheriff’s Office deputies and Cook County Search & Rescue located a partially submerged canoe registered to the missing man, Michael Raymond Hickey, 59, of Duluth, as well as paddles and personal effects believed to be those of the man.

“The search victim is a long-time user of the area who has been fishing Pine Lake for many years,” said Sheriff Pat Eliasen.

“Colleagues reported him missing when he failed to attend work Monday and attempts to contact him were unsuccessful. He left for Pine Lake on Friday, Nov. 4, and was supposed to return Sunday.”

Pine Lake is located east of McFarland Lake in the BWCA. The missing man’s truck was located at the McFarland Lake boat landing.
 “Darkness hampered the search into Monday evening, but resumed at daybreak today,” said Sheriff Eliasen. “This is an ongoing investigation; more information will be released when it is available."

LSProject: Too many deer in the deer yard?

Tue, 11/01/2016 - 2:32pm
feedsetimg.jpeg

Deer weren't always common along the North Shore of Lake Superior. With the increase in their population, the plants that make our landscape so appealing are disappearing in areas where deer gather during the winter. 

In this edition of The Lake Superior Project, WTIP's Martha Marnocha joined State Park naturalist Kurt Mead and Silver Bay High School students to learn about a project being conducted at Tettegouche State Park. The project hopes to develop strategies for protecting young trees from heavy deer browse.
