Did You Know You Need an Agate Picking Permit in Carlton County?

As a child growing up in Wrenshall I did a lot of agate picking.  My parents started me out at the young age of three, agate picking in the various gravel pits in our area.  I'm not sure if a permit was needed then, but as I was checking out the Carlton County Transportation website, I came across the information I felt I should share with other "rock hounds".

I was invited to go fishing the St. Louis river with my friend Rich and his dad yesterday morning, and it would be my first time up the river since the historic 2012 June flood.  The damage along the riverbank was unbelievable.  There were mudslides, islands washed away, and trees toppled into the river all along the way.

Homemade Mosquito Trap Could Help Keep Your Family Comfortable this Memorial Weekend

Vinegar Makes a Cheap and Easy Weed Killer

It's spring!  We're starting to see buds on the trees and the grass is greening up (our neighbor has mowed his lawn twice already....he's retired).  But, with the sure signs of summer around the corner also comes weeds!  With the weeds, questions.  How do I get rid of them?  Will they come back?  How long until it's safe for my pets to walk on the lawn again?!?!  If you use this inexpensive concoction of things you already have in the house, it will be safe AND cost effective.
