Ice May Not be Safe for Fishing

December 10, 2012

Ice anglers should know what they’re doing before they go out onto the ice. This is what Scott Tichy, park ranger for the Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Ashtabula, wants people to know.

No ice is ever really safe, said Tichy, but ice conditions on Lake Ashtabula are currently poor. Some of the ice is thick enough for walking on, and some isn’t. And when a person is on the ice, he can’t tell if it is an inch thick or four inches thick, the recommended thickness for walking on.

It’s best to stay off until the weather is cooler, urged Tichy.

Mitten Tree in 35th Year in VC

December 10, 2012

When Valley City’s Rosie Larson was a young child, she saw a tree decorated with mittens in the window of a bank in Detroit Lakes. That tree happened to be a charity campaign that helps those in need during the holiday season.

“Being from a poor family myself, I didn’t have mittens or boots, and I thought when I get older, ‘I’m going to make sure they have the necessities,’” Larson said.

And so for the 35th straight year, Larson, being the director of a local, independent charity organization called Valley City Cares, has organized an annual mitten tree in Valley City.
