The harvest of this wild turkey by Andrew Papatriantafyllou in the Sunset Lake area began on the morning of May 10 with the use of a turkey call. “I called him in from over 300 yards; had him running down the pipeline.” He was using a custom glass friction call. “He ended up walking behind me. I turned him back my way using cutts and purrs.” The shot was made at 8:10 a.m. at 23 yards with a Beneli M2 20 gauge. The bird weighed 20-pounds, had a 9-inch beard and 1-inch spurs.

Chandra Ziegler’s kindergarten-1 class at Forest Park celebrated Earth Day in many ways. The students used minimal electronics, kept only one row of lights on, turned trash to treasure by creating recycled flowers, read many books, and picked up trash around the school property. The students were eager to help clean the earth and wanted to do more.

The Iron River just off U.S. 2 west of town is a favorite trout fishing spot because of its deep, cold waters. With the opening of trout season on Aril 26, fishermen hope that all the snow will have left the banks and the water will be open.
