Fishing season is open on BigStone Lake and l'm fish are biting[ According to the DNR Section of Fish and Yellow Perch are abundant. Detailed information, maps, is available by calling 320-839-2656. ward to the tournaments which have become years. Hopefully Big Stone Lake water quality improve. Fish, fishing and our faith go hand in hand. The Old and the New Testaments, contains many fish known that some of the disciples were fishermen called them to leave their nets to become "fishers of occasion, Jesus told the disciples where to fish and many fish that their nets were close to breaking. ! And we ber the story of the small lad who gave Jesus his five fish, which in the hands of Jesus became enough feed 5,000, with some left over! Then there is the I am reminded of a story by Meister Eckhart. Writing ing and fish hooks, he makes the point that love is tlae which God uses to catch us. Reflect on: God is like a person Who clears his throat while hiding And so gives himself away. God lies in wait for us With nothing so much as love. Now love is like a fish hook. A fisher cannot catch a fish Unless the fish first picks up the hook. If the fish swallows the hook, No matter how it may squirm and turn, The fisher is certain of the fish. Love is the same way. Whoever is captured by love Takes up this hook in such a fashion That foot and hand, mouth and eyes, Heart and all that is in that person Must always belong to God. Therefore, look only for this fish hook And you will be happily caught. The more you are caught, the more you are liberated, Dean Strege, Richard Schneck, Tina Wolner Ziegler, Helen Sandgren, Tanner Nippoldt, Sara Jane Hipple, Brianna Schneck, Stacy Hasslen, Nicole Pfleger, Rachael Streich, Brian Schott Mrs. Gary Glenn Henningso Wiegman, Matthew Christopher Erode, Linda Hausauser Obituaries Lee Salisbury Lee Salisbury, 51, of Hoffman, passed away this past weekend in Douglas County. A visitation and remembrance service was conducted at Date's Funeral Home in Elk River Thursday, May 6, 1999. The Erickson-Smith Funeral Home in Hoffman was in charge of arrangements. Lee Elery Salisbury was born April 4, 1948, in Anoka, to Elery and Rholene (Haas) Salisbury. Following graduation from high school in Ortonville, Lee entered the army. In 1968, he was united in marriage to Evey Citrowske, and to this union three daughters were born: Jessica, Jezrael, and Jeshsalem. Lee married Sara Anderson in 1984, and the couple had a son Malry James. Lee had been an employee of the Grant County DAC was a lifelong love of music alike. Survivors (Jeffrey) Jones ol Jezrael Salisbury Jeshsalem SalisburY son Malry SalisburY two grandchildren, Keegan Jones; of Minneapolis, Beth Nelson (Carolyn) SalisburY ( (Janet) Salisbur (Pat) Salisbury of Salisbury of Mon Keller of WoodburY. Lee was mother Rholene As it is and is apprc The Larson Funeral Home and appreciates lhe area service men and eeoc, "Why do they fire three times (volleys) at the cemetery for a military funeral? Dating back to the Napoleonic Wars, when one army wanted to recover their dead and wounded from the battlefield, they would fire three volleys and the battle would cease long enough for the recovery. Then again, three volleys would be fired to resume the battle. The three volleys at the cemetery today remind us of both; that we should life that was lived and that we too must 'battle.'

Fish, fishing and our faith go hand in hand. The Old and the New Testaments, contains many fish known that some of the disciples were fishermen called them to leave their nets to become "fishers of occasion, Jesus told the disciples where to fish and many fish that their nets were close to breaking. ! And we ber the story of the small lad who gave Jesus his five fish, which in the hands of Jesus became enough feed 5,000, with some left over! Then there is the I am reminded of a story by Meister Eckhart. Writing ing and fish hooks, he makes the point that love is tlae which God uses to catch us. Reflect on: God is like a person Who clears his throat while hiding And so gives himself away. God lies in wait for us With nothing so much as love. Now love is like a fish hook. A fisher cannot catch a fish Unless the fish first picks up the hook. If the fish swallows the hook, No matter how it may squirm and turn, The fisher is certain of the fish. Love is the same way. Whoever is captured by love Takes up this hook in such a fashion That foot and hand, mouth and eyes, Heart and all that is in that person Must always belong to God. Therefore, look only for this fish hook And you will be happily caught. The more you are caught, the more you are liberated, Dean Strege, Richard Schneck, Tina Wolner Ziegler, Helen Sandgren, Tanner Nippoldt, Sara Jane Hipple, Brianna Schneck, Stacy Hasslen, Nicole Pfleger, Rachael Streich, Brian Schott Mrs. Gary Glenn Henningso Wiegman, Matthew Christopher Erode, Linda Hausauser Obituaries Lee Salisbury Lee Salisbury, 51, of Hoffman, passed away this past weekend in Douglas County.

Dating back to the Napoleonic Wars, when one army wanted to recover their dead and wounded from the battlefield, they would fire three volleys and the battle would cease long enough for the recovery. Then again, three volleys would be fired to resume the battle. The three volleys at the cemetery today remind us of both; that we should life that was lived and that we too must 'battle.'
