According to the annual Back-To- School Survey conducted by Myvesta. org, the average back-to- school shopper planned on spending $3,184 on back-to-school supplies this year. "You would need to have eight children for the IRS checks to com- pletely cover your back-to-school expenses," Rhode said "But then again, if you have eight children head- ing back to school, your expenses are most likely a bit more than the aver- age family." According to the Myvesta.org sur- vey, the costs go up as kids get older. Those with children in their house- hold under six years old planned on spending $2,866; those with children in their household aged 6-12 planned on spending $2,992: and those with children in their household aged 13- 17 planned on spending $4,081 The national average of $3,184 includes those age groups, as well as college students and adults going back to school. "After the kids are settled back into their school routines and you've gotten all of your bills from your back-to-school shopping, take a moment to tally everything up. Then you can develop a realistic picture of what your expenses will be next year, and you can start planning now," Rhode said.

J Eurasian watermilfoil was also confirmed in Indian Lake, a 146-acre lake in Wrigl.County, and in Buradl Lake in Carver County. Burandt Lake is connected to Lake Waconia, which was added to the infested list in 1989. It is likely that the plant spread into Burandt though the donnecting chan- nel. Despite finding more evidence of the plant's spread, DNR officials said Eurasian watermilfoil is still known in fewer than 200 lakes across the state, thanks to continued vigilance from boaters. Chip Welling, DNR Eurasian watermilfoil program coordinator, urges boaters to continue to take pre- cautions to avoid spreading the plant. "There are still thousands of lakes that don't have milfoil," Welling said. 'We encourage boaters to remove all aquatic plants from boats and trailers, and empty water from bait buckets before leaving a public water access in order to help prevent the spread of harmful exotic species."
