DNR opens public comment period on draft PolyMet dam safety and public waters work permits

The Department of Natural Resources is seeking comments, from Sept. 15 through Oct. 16, on two draft dam safety permits and a draft public waters work permit for the Poly Met Mining, Inc. (PolyMet) NorthMet mining project. The permits relate to a proposed copper-nickel mine near Hoyt Lakes in northeastern Minnesota.

This is the public’s opportunity to submit written comments on these draft permits.

One draft dam safety permit covers the proposed flotation tailings basin, which would receive tailings (a mixture of finely ground waste rock and water) after the commercially recoverable copper, nickel and other elements are removed. This proposed tailings basin would be on the site of the existing tailings basin of the historic LTV iron ore mine.

Ely England re-captures Ryder Cup from Ely Minnesota

RYDER CUP RESULTS 2017: Ely, England vs Ely, Minnesota, USA
The above mentioned two entities, Ely, England and Ely, Minnesota, have been playing a golf tournament in their own city since 2007, and this year’s match was scheduled for Sunday, August 27, 2017.
This golf tournament would take place in each Ely city, at approximately the same time, which means that Ely, Minnesota teams would start teeing off at 7:30 am., and Ely, England would be teeing off at approximately 12:30 pm. (their time), which would bring both cities into alignment 5 to 6 hours later when Ely, England would call Ely, MN with their scoring results.
Complicated? Yep!
Anyway, on to this year, 2017. For whatever reason, this year’s event had not produced many entries.
In Ely, MN., only two senior men’s teams and only one women’s team signed up, and “stayed to play”, so to speak.

Naples, Florida evacuation affects Ely, Minnesota

At 1909 miles, the distance between Ely, Minnesota and Naples, Florida may seem irrelevant.
That is unless the Ely Echo newspaper's server is housed in Naples, Florida and the folks there are experiencing a major hurricane.
Before they all exited for a safer location, they gave directions to the publisher on how to still use the serviceslocated in other parts of the country.
Echo web readers normally are privy to almost daily updates, but during this period, there will be some delays.
Please be patient. It might be a good time for you to request a sample of the Echo’s email edition which comes in the form of a pdf.
It is the complete newspaper and it is all in color! Contact Anne at 218-365-3141 Monday Friday 8 AM - 4 PM for a sample.
