March is Minnesota Food Share Month and all donations made to the Salvation Army’s food shelves this month will be matched.

Devil's Kettle Water Flow Mystery Solved

Facebook Twitter

02/28/2017 - 10:40 AM

The Devil’s Kettle Waterfall mystery in Grand Marais, the waterfall famous for splitting into two steams and disappearing, has been solved.

Along Lake Superior's North Shore, the Brule River splits into many streams as it flows downhill. At one point half of the stream spills into a hole in the earth, which is the Devil's Kettle.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says the water does not vanish, but instead renters the river downstream. 

Hydrologist Jeff Green says “The readings show no loss of water below the kettle, so it confirms the water is resurging in the stream below it.”

In the Fall, Green’s team will pour a fluorescent dye into the kettle to find out where it renters the stream. 

A field report and pictures can be found here from the DNR.

Town Hall with Rep. Tom Emmer Draws Large Crowd

Facebook Twitter

02/23/2017 - 9:30 AM

SARTELL, Minn. (AP) - Sixth District Congressman's Tom Emmer's town hall went on as planned after the congressman said he would shut down the event if protests or unruly attendees disrupted the conversation.

Attendees Wednesday night pressed Emmer about a number of issues stemming from President Donald Trump's first month in office. The Minnesota residents' questions were centered around health care, immigration and education. The event filled up minutes after police opened the doors at Sartell's City Hall. The crowd was mostly subdued compared to those at other town halls across the nation, though Emmer and the group visibly sparred at times.

Emmer drew vocal criticism when speaking about reforming the Affordable Care Act and Trump's immigration order. Multiple attendees say they were frustrated when they felt that Emmer was dodging audience members' questions.
