Residents of western and central Minnesota are at risk for West Nile virus, which causes mild to severe disease, for the remainder of the summer, the Minnesota Department of Health reported Monday. Because of weather conditions the past two months, this risk may be greater than past years. Nineteen cases of WNV-related illness in Minnesotans, including two deaths, have already been reported to the Minnesota Department of Health, ahead of numbers reported at this time in previous years. "Warmer than normal weather this summer has sped up the development of WNV in mosquitoes," said David Neit
Every August, the descendants of Walter and Grace Baker gather in Kerkhoven for a reunion. It is always held on the weekend closest to Aug. 12, which was both a birthday and wedding anniversary for Grace. This has been going on since time eternal, or at least 1969, which is as far back as I can remember. The 2006 Baker family reunion was held this past weekend. There were about 30 of us gathered, ranging in age from 82 to seven. That's not a great turnout, given that Walter and Grace had seven children, 18 grandchildren and an ever-growing number of great grandchildren.
Summer is winding down and so is the 9F trap shooting season. The 10th and final week of shooting was held and there were some good scores recorded to bring up team totals.

Second place went to the Moose Island Raiders. Superior Fire Power took third. 1. Morris Rifle Club - 1118 2.
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) continues to streamline its deer management program to make it easier for hunters to harvest deer. Changes to be implemented in 2006 include zone realignments and deer area boundary changes, both of which were discussed at public meetings held across the state this past winter. "We are continuing to make changes to more efficiently manage whitetail populations," said Lou Cornicelli, DNR Big Game Program coordinator.
Like last year, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has established a 60-day duck hunting bag limit that is more conservative than the regulatory structure allowed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The four-duck limit that allows only one hen is identical to last year's regulation but less than the six-duck, two-hen limit the federal government allows under the so called "liberal" hunting framework. "We did not come to this decision lightly," said Dave Schad, director of the DNR Division of Fish and Wildlife.
