Shivering at home in these below-zero temperatures? Is your furnace broken completely or not working quite right? Maybe it's time to talk to the warm and friendly folks at Mahube-Otwa Community Action about energy assistance help. If you qualify, you can receive from $200 to $1,400 to help pay your heating bills, and up to $600 more later in emergency situations. You can also get your faulty furnace repaired or replaced. Whether you qualify for help is based on household size, income, fuel type, and past energy usage.
DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Thanks to a lot of work done over the summer, there's plenty of room for tubing now at Detroit Mountain. A new tubing area has been created to essentially doubled the size of the old area. There are now 10 lanes for the downhill ride and two central magic carpet conveyor belts to bring people back up to the top of the hill. "It offers an exhilarating ride," said Jeff Staley, general manager of Detroit Mountain Recreation Area.
Since antibiotics came into general use in the 1930s and 1940s, they have been widely available to American farmers to use on their livestock at their discretion. Until now, antibiotics for food animals have been easily obtained at feed stores, fleet supply stores or online. Farmers with sick livestock often take care of the problem themselves. That will change Jan. 1, when the Veterinary Feed Directive kicks in, regulating the use of antibiotics in the food and drinking water of livestock.
Members of the Minnesota National Guard, including companies based in Wadena, Detroit Lakes and Bemidji made a strong showing during their National Training Center rotation at Fort Irwin, Calif., in June.

A young bald eagle that seems to have trouble flying has been the pampered guest of property owners on Turtle Lake for about a week. "He first showed up around the lake last weekend," said Karleen Mjolsness, who lives on the southwest corner of the lake. "He spent time with different people and they would feed him pieces of cut-up perch ... he doesn't seem to be frightened of us." He spent last Wednesday night on the Mjolsness' deck. He likes salmon, but turned up his beak at the pieces of tilapia she offered.
