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.

Edward Richard “Dick” Fernlund dies

Edward Richard “Dick” Fernlund died peacefully on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at Ely Bloomenson Community Hospital. Edward was born Feb. 12, 1930 near Cook, MN to Frank and Cordelia (Ecklund) Fernlund. He married Carol Sokoloski on May 25, 1957 in Virginia, MN.
Edward graduated from Cook, MN High School, was drafted into the U.S. Marine Corps in 1951 and honorably discharged in 1953.
He is a 15-year paid-up for life member of the Waite Park Post 428 American Legion. He retired from the U.S. Forest Service as an engineer in 1985 after 27 years. Edward “Dick” was a man of few words but known for his dry humor that kept you laughing. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, collecting agates and watching football and westerns.
Edward is survived by his daughter Corry Frentz (Roy Bester); sons Ed Fernlund (Robin Amolins) and Tom (Veronica) Fernlund; eight grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews.

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.
