... This is not an indicator of a healthy employment situation for the iron range small towns and cities

Dear Editor;
Mining is not an issue of love and cares for the BWCA, we all love and care for the BWCA!
I will acknowledge with the anti-mining obstructionists and one speaker in particular at the Forest Service listening session at the DECC on March 16 who contend the economy in Ely and towns nearby is an economy built on the strength of the BWCA as an economic wealth builder.
After the speaker was done self-aggrandizing and bloviating about his business, he did elucidate the robustness of the Ely economy ,saying the city is growing and healthy and new businesses were coming in constantly. We know this must be true because we heard the same speech before.

County land use permits available online

Need a building permit to add on to your home? How about to subdivide a parcel of land? Any land use permit offered by St. Louis County now can be applied and paid for online. This includes applications for structures, additions, land alterations, gravel pits, variances, conditional use permits, wetlands and property subdivisions.
St. Louis County administers zoning for all areas of the County outside of cities and a few select townships that handle their own zoning.
Through the new online permit application portals, people can apply 24/7 for permits such as for structures, additions, land alterations, gravel pits, variances, conditional use permits, wetlands and property subdivisions. The web address is crm.stlouiscountymn.gov. First time applicants will need to set up an account, which takes just a minute or two, and is free. Their information will then be stored, which will save them time in any future applications.

Kiwanis/Lions to provide free eye-screening for Ely area pre-schoolers on March 29

The Kiwanis Club of Ely is partnering with the Lion’s Club of Cook to provide FREE eye-screening for Ely-area pre-school children, on Wednesday, March 29.
From 9 a.m. to noon in the basement at First Lutheran Church, the screening will primarily target three-year olds or younger, but older pre-schoolers will also be welcome.
The results of the screening can detect if a child’s eyes are normal, or if the child need’s to be referred to an eye care professional. The simple two-minute screening will use a “glorified camera” recently purchased by the Cook Lion’s Club that can evaluate if there are any abnormalities in the pupils of the child.
The only requirements needed for the free screening are the parent’s presence and a signature on a consent form.
