JOYCE - KATHY JEWELRY Oonville. MN 56278 Phone839.3262 Ortonville news DNR Wants To Cut Back On Fishing Contests Fishing contests have flourished in Minnesota recently. Last year the Department of Natural Resources issued 278 permits for contests, and dozens of others were held around the state that did not require permits, according to a story in the Star Tribune, written by Doug Smith. A decade ago, half as many permits 4kvere issued. Contests occur on some popular lakes nearly every week end. For some months the DNR has been talking to anglers, fishing groups and tournament officials about the problem, and now is ready to ask the Legislature next month to approve a law further restricting the number of fishing tournaments. Some of the proposals are: Require more tournaments to need permits; limit the number of permits available; place more restrictions on the number of tournaments that can be held on weekends. SANTA CLAUS VISITED those who couldn't be at Santa Day in Bellingham. Above, Mr. Claus visits with Myrtle Maatz. There are currently no limits on the number of contests that can be held on individual lakes. The number of contests could be restricted, depend- ing on the size of the lake. The proposals will have to be approved by Gov.-elect Jesse Ventura's office before it can be pitched to the Legislature. y Laurie Hammei, Librarian Those are my rules. There are other hour? Two? Once a month? Year- anybody out there interested things to be discussed, howevgr(so round or just for the winter? Yviks anyb Group? timbre eral pepo le have suggested this T_e I and, I've pondered and Iered. I ve always thought it ,alld be a grand idea, but I m not Rexactly how it should be set up. "ll've decided to throw it out there Atee what happens. s the instigator of this, I m l.g up a few rules of my own to framework. First, this would ook,Group to read and discuss w/tiled 'serious" literature. That #1.s no Danielle Steel, Louis L' "-t t air, Marry Higgins Clark, Dean ,,ltttz, Stephen King, or anything of "Nrpetually bestselling variety. leer, we d get into contemporary WOrs such as Annie Dillard, a Kingsolver, Wallace Stegner, .lriel Garcia Marquez, or classics a: Jane Austen, Kate Chopin, Dickens, Edith Wharton and "-=as Hardy. ]eond, the Book Group would llace in the activity room at the aville Library. This saves Ly from having to clean house &'e cookies. 'ii'hird, the Book Group will be llited to fifteen members. That d allow for reasonable discussion ch everyone can participate, but so unwieldy that you feel like at a lecture. please give the following items some thought. Books: Are you willing to purchase your own copies or shall we stick strictly to library books? anyone can buy a book from and it will be delivered to your house in 2-3 days. In this case, we could stick to things that are available in paperback. If we get items we get from other libraries, we'll need to plan in advance and come up with a system to share if there aren't enough copies for everybody. It requires more coordination but it's FREE! Time: Mornin_ gs? Evenings? One Selections and research: Who picks the titles? Does someone do a mini- presentation of the book and author prior to opening the discussion? Should we have some coordinating theme? Creature comforts: Is this a BYOB situation or shall we coordinate a coffee-and-cookie schedule? There's just so many choices! It makes my head swim. To save me from drowning, please call the library at 839-2494 to sign up for the organizational meeting at the Ortonville Library on Monday, Jan. 4, at 7 p.m. To our customers in Ortonville, Odessa, Big Stone Citt,, Bellingham, Cc re!l and the surrounding area.
