MD 20852 Open water (Continued from page 1) contribute to the water movement and the entire lake ice surface is unstable. One of the largest open areas is directly south of Kight Island said Brett Jacobsen who lives nearby and spends a lot of time on the lake. Despite the colder weather over the weekend, high winds were making the area even larger. South of Manhatten Island, there's a portion of the lake that never has frozen over this year, according to Jacobson. "It just does- n't make any sense at all. How can there be open water in an area where it was 14 inches thick a few days before. It's just not good physics." Both Nelsen and Stenzel men- tioned that not only are there large open areas, but a number of 10-12 foot circles that have opened up that may be caused by springs. Nelson warns, "Things can change out there given these conditions. Don't depend on the ice to be the same one day as the next. One indi- vidual went throught on his ATV last week at a spot he says he drove over 'at least 20 times before." To make matters even more frus- trating for avid fishermen like Bob Stenzel, the fish aren't biting either. According to Nelsen, catches were good up to about a week and a half ago, and then it seemed like no one was having much luck. Stenzel claims the fish move a lot on Big Stone Lake, and it's been just to() treacherous to find them. "It's difficult to spend a lot of time looking for fish when you're nervous." Stenzel has previous experience falling through the ice. "I was walking off the peninsula a few years ago, when I went in. At first I tried to pull myself out, but the ice just broke away. Fortunately, I had ahold of the ice auger and was able to jam it into the ice to give myself a little leverage, and managed to level out and pull myself out." Stenzel got back to his car, went home to warm up, and went back out fishing. "But I'm a lot more careful since then." Haukos warns that even with more consistent cold weather, the ice still won't be sate. "People need to be aware once those pressure ridges are established, they'll be there all winter. The lake ice is going to be more dangerous than typical for the entire season."

At that time, a slave was merely an extension of its master's body. In slave states, there is no record of a master prosecuted for the murder of killing his own slave. America paid a horrible penalty (the civil war) for the evil of slavery. Now, we are faced with a similar issue. The pre-born are supposed to be an extension of the woman's body to do with as she or the male involved pleases. A Washington D.C. policeman interviewed "live" regarding sniper murders said, "It is horrible the number of young women working in Washington offices who disappear. Often, they are found murdered." Is it true that if a woman refuses abortion, she is "aborted"? Forty million pre-born have been killed in U.S. since 1973. Murder rate for the District of Columbia is 46 per 100,000 Ixpulation. It is more than the murder rate for any state. For example, poverty-stricken Alabama has a murder rate of 9 per 100,000 population. Now we are about to go to war against a regime which is guilty of many horrible murders. I will pray for our armed forces. But I wonder if my prayers will be heard. In world war II, in the Korean conflict and even in Vietnam, we had moral right. Now, I don't know! The horrible wrong of mid-eastern fanatic-murderers and a power insane dictator there may be neutralized by cover-up of our owa wrong-doing. If abortion is protection for free sex, it is murder. Not only the pre-born, but adult women are apparently "aborted". Pray for America!
