The Minnesota Department of Agriculture is extending its comment period on the proposed quarantine of gypsy moth for Lake and Cook counties . The original 30-day comment period will be extended to 45 days, ending March 12. The state is proposing quarantine for Lake and Cook counties to help slow the human-assisted spread of gypsy moths that have exploded in number along the North Shore and in some inland forest areas.
Minnesota Duluth goaltender Kayla Black kept Bemidji State off the scoreboard until the final 13 seconds Saturday as the Bulldogs clinched a home-ice spot in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association women's playoffs with a 2-1 victory over host Bemidji State. Freshman Ashleigh Brykaliuk, who scored two goals in Friday's 5-3 win, netted her 10th of the season to break a scoreless standoff with 2:01 remaining in the second period. Junior Zoe Hickel made it 2-0 with a power-play goal -- also her 10th of the season -- 11:17 into the third period.
"Daddy?" Gavin Schroeder asked an obviously exhausted Nathan Schroeder in the parking lot of Billy's Bar. "Yes?" Nathan mustered, holding the oldest of his three young children in his arms. "Congratulations," Gavin said quietly. Then came a chorus of "awws" among the scores of people surrounding the 2014 John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon champion. Nathan Schroeder was the first to arrive at the finish line at Billy's in Rice Lake Township, at 1:19 p.m., after four days of brutal racing. The Chisholm resident finished about two hours ahead of the next musher, Keith Aili of Ray.
