Without visible radio collars, the Ely area black bears made famous by researcher Lynn Rogers will be shot and killed by hunters this fall, Rogers said today.

"The changes are a management response to the most recent wolf population estimate," said Dan Stark, the DNR's large carnivore specialist. "As with other game species DNR manages, adjustments are made to regulate hunting pressure and harvest to ensure long term population sustainability and provide hunting and trapping opportunities."

A court hearing is set for Monday in Ramsey County on Rogers request to continue his research after the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources refused to renew his permit. The DNR maintains that because Rogers hand feeds bears in the area, they have become a threat to public safety.

This fall hunters must purchase a $3 Walk In Access validation on their small game or deer license to legally access land enrolled in the program. The DNR added the validation so it can learn how many hunters use Walk In Access lands as well as where and how those lands are used.

"Without radio collars, June, Lily, Faith, Juliet, and the others could be shot unknowingly by hunters who would spare radio collared bears, Rogers said in a news release Friday.

Starting Thursday, Aug. 1, hunters and trappers can apply for 2,000 early season and 1,300 late season licenses. That's a reduction from 3,600 early season and 2,400 late season licenses in 2012. The deadline to apply for the hunting and trapping license lottery is Thursday, Sept. 5.

Hunters heading to western and south central Minnesota will have access to an additional 6,083 acres of hunting land this fall as the Walk In Access program grows to more than 20,000 acres and the number of counties increases from 19 to 28.

DNR is acting like they have to get the radios off the bears to protect public safety, he wrote Canada Goose Children New Zealand to the Pioneer Press and another reporter. believe they really want the radios off so the study bears will be killed in hunting season before any hearing could take place.

Minnesota youth have until Friday, Aug. 16, to apply for 18 mentored deer hunts this fall, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Youth ages 12 15 may apply for one of 15 special firearms youth deer hunts at selected state parks and refuges. Youth ages 12 17 may apply for three special archery youth deer hunts. Participating in a youth deer hunt does not preclude the youth from participating in the regular firearms deer season, but any deer harvested do count against the youth's season bag limit.

In a separate communication, Rogers accused the DNR of wanting the bears killed.

The names of the other plane passenger and pilot have not yet been released.

In a statement released on Saturday evening, Ambulance New Brunswick offered their thoughts and prayers to the families, friends and colleagues of "those whose lives were lost."

Grand Manan has a population of about 2,000 people. Community members told CTV Atlantic that the whole island is in mourning after the fatal crash.

Cheap Women Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber Summit Pink Nz

The pilot who died has been identified as Atlantic Charters company president Klaus Sonnenberg. In his profile on LinkedIn, Sonnenberg listed himself as the owner of Atlantic Charters since 1982.

"William, or Billy as he was known by his friends, and the pilot lost their lives serving the public and helping patients," Paul Ward, interim president at Ambulance New Brunswick, said in the statement. "We also want to express our sympathies and the hope for a speedy and complete recovery to the two others that suffered injuries in the accident."

The paramedic has been identified as William Mallock, who was on duty at the time of the crash. Mallock had nearly 20 Cheap Women Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber Summit Pink Nz years of experience as a paramedic.

The plane has been identified as a Piper Navajo (PA31). According to the Atlantic Charters website, the model can travel a maximum of 340 kilometres per hour and its standard tasks include medevac flights.

Mallock, Sonnenberg, the nurse, and the other pilot were returning to Grand Manan after a trip to Saint John Regional Hospital following a patient drop off.

"We are asking for your respect to give our community, company, and family time to heal," the statement said.

It is still too early to determine the cause of the crash, Ambulance New Brunswick said. RCMP blocked the site off from media Saturday and sent a chopper to review the scene.

A second pilot and nurse from the Grand Manan hospital survived the crash. There were no injuries to anyone on the ground, and there was no patient on board the plane.

Saturday morning, Ambulance New Brunswick said Saturday in a news release. The plane hit the ground in a grassy area, metres from the landing strip at the Grand Manan airport.

"That's the way to come up with the best answer."

Chapdelaine needed to get out of his contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders to talk to Calvillo, then signed a two year deal with Montreal.

MONTREAL Anthony Calvillo wanted help in his first full season as an offensive co ordinator, and Montreal Alouettes coach and general manager Jim Popp found him a proven veteran in Jacques Chapdelaine.

"Our main focus is to make sure we jell together as a staff to bring this organization back to where it was in the past, and that's being a winner."

Als' OC Calvillo welcomes Chapdelaine's help

When the Alouettes announced this week they had hired Chapdelaine as receivers coach and "special adviser" to Calvillo, some saw it as a lack of confidence in the former star quarterback's ability to be a co ordinator in only his second year of coaching.

He said he will give his opinions, but won't second guess Calvillo.

"I learned as a player that you have to be open minded and able to learn and have qualified guys on the staff to make us better," Calvillo said Wednesday. "Jim has given me the leeway to find and hire my guys.

"That's extremely difficult. I see it as a sounding board. I'm here to make him look good. The better this offence goes, the more confident he'll be as a coach and the better off we all are."

Calvillo said he doesn't have the contacts in the coaching fraternity yet to find his own adviser and asked Popp for some names. He was excited at the chance to work with Chapdelaine, a Sherbrooke, Que., native who won Grey Cups with Men Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber Brown Nz Calgary and British Columbia.

"One of the things I stressed with our staff is that I want them to speak their minds," said Calvillo, the CFL's all time passing leader. "I want them to challenge each of us.

Not so, said Calvillo, who welcomed the chance to work with a 54 year old ex Alouette player with 13 years of CFL coaching experience.

Two major tasks await. They need to replace starting left tackle Josh Bourke, who signed as a free agent with Toronto, and they have to sort out a crowd of receivers after signing free agent Kenny Stafford and bringing Duran Carter back from the NFL.

"Now there's going to be another name thrown into the mix," said Calvillo. "We can't control that.

It adds another name to list of potential future head coaches on staff if Popp ever quits coaching to concentrate on being general manager. Defensive co ordinator Noel Thorpe and special teams co ordinator Kavis Reed would also be prime candidates, while Calvillo almost seems destined to be head coach one day.

"They've played together before and had success," said Calvillo. "But that's the challenge we have lot of weapons now and everyone has to understand we're going to build this as a team.

"He's going to be calling the game," said Chapdelaine. "I've never believed in co co ordinators.

"Right! And I didn't know he knew who I was," says Schumer, picking up the story. "So I was taking off my sweatpants in an alley and putting on a skirt," she says, acting out the awkwardness of it all, "and I was like, 'Excuse me, do you know where a liquor store is?'

She adds, "Now, I have to be careful and make sure I'm really experiencing something and not just brushing it off with jokes."

Amy Schumer not a Trainwreck when it comes to sex and booze

The nearest thing to truth in the movie, says Schumer, is her character's close relationship with her father, played by Colin Quinn as an irascible, hilarious guy with no filter. Schumer is very tight with her sister, too, but that sister (despite what the movie suggests) is not a suburban housewife with a nerdy husband.

Mind you, she says, there was that one time a guy saw Schumer taking off her pants in an alley .

"I was like, 12, when that happened. We moved from a huge house to like, a shack in a bad neighbourhood. But it was fine. It was really just the size of the house and my mom had to go back to work." And in her family, comedy helped. "Everyone was so sarcastic. To a fault, almost. We would just make jokes about everything."

How has success affected Schumer's insecurities?

Men Canada Goose Langford Parka Tan Nz

"We got real close. I don't drink that much. I mean, I drink. I don't take shots and like, black out! And I don't get laid half as much. Not even a quarter.

She's also touring alongside Aziz Ansari on the aptly named Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival this summer (it stops at Toronto's Molson Amphitheatre on Sept. 6).

Schumer will open for Madonna at the singer's three New York shows in September; right now she's working on another movie with her sister. They're reshaping a script originally written by Katie Dippold (The Heat), a mother/daughter comedy about a holiday gone awry. Schumer says she'll play the daughter.

Success will no doubt be just one more transition Schumer will negotiate with humour. She says that's how she survived a major transition in childhood, when her father's bankruptcy and her parents' divorce created a riches to rags scenario.

The introvert studied theatre at Maryland's Towson University, moving back to her native New York after graduation and working up the courage to make her standup debut at the Gotham Comedy Club when she was 23. Schumer appeared on the reality show Last Comic Standing in 2007 (she came fourth); just prior to that she was asked to appear on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham series, which proved to be fortuitous. She continued to work the club scene, but Schumer drew a lot of attention for her routine at a Charlie Sheen roast in 2011. The following year she made the special Mostly Sex Stuff and then became one of Comedy Central's bright lights in 2013 with Inside Amy Schumer. That show made her a household name.

Schumer, 34, came to Toronto to promote Trainwreck, the comedy she wrote and stars in with Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton, LeBron James and Vanessa Bayer; Judd Apatow is the director. Schumer's character is someone every woman will recognize and she's riddled with insecurities.

Her sister explains: "We were looking for a liquor store and we couldn't find one. We saw a guy walking by while Amy was changing into a skirt and we asked him where the liquor store was."

Does Schumer's serious side surprise a lot of her fans?

"I'd say I disappoint about 50% of the people I meet. And that's okay!" the actress jokes. "I like those numbers!"

"But other than that, other than the embellishment of the sexual activity and the intake of sort of, ah, narcotics and alcohol, that's all real."

"I can tell you, the stuff I've worked out in therapy is that I'm not afraid to accept love now," says Schumer, thoughtfully. "It's still a bit of a struggle, but I can do it and I feel like I deserve it."

The version of herself in Trainwreck, says Schumer, is closest to who she was as a sophomore in college. "I was just spreading myself really thin. You know, at college, you go to a bar or a party and it's so packed, so awful, that you have to drink your way through it like, the only way it could be fun would be to join them, and get yourself really drunk? And I think that could be a metaphor for everything else, because I just can't get myself into that mindset to enjoy things it Men Canada Goose Langford Parka Tan Nz seems most people can. I think I'm an introvert."

How will success affect her love life?

Actually, Schumer's sister Kim Caramele writes with her, works with her and is in the room with us during this interview.

"Coffee? Pringles? Want to watch a movie?" she asks in greeting. "Let's just go get a drink."

"If I'm staying profitable in Niagara Falls, I'll continue to take chances down here," he said.

NFC Development Corp. Director Fran Iusi said the agency submitted the bid as a fallback option in the event a private purchaser did not step forward. Had the agency secured rights to the property, Iusi said it would have put it back on the market in hopes of finding another private buyer, which is what she said the city prefers.

Women Canada Goose Solaris Parka Red New Zealand

Cafe Etc. was once viewed as a key property in Third Street's redevelopment. Fournier Jr. renovated the site and opened it as a jazz club in 2002. He entered into a loan arrangement with the city's NFC Development Corp. two years later, borrowing $75,000 from the small business development agency to purchase equipment.

Anderson stressed that he does not plan to interfere with operations at Donatello's, the popular pizzeria and sub shop owned by Fournier's father, Steve Fournier Sr.

Anderson said he views Niagara Falls as a "namebrand" and likened purchasing property in the city to buying "low price stock" with the belief that the investment will one day prove wise and profitable. He acknowledged the city has much to do in terms of improving its infrastructure, but remains confident that things will continue to improve in the future. He added that his other ventures in the downtown area, including the Quality Hotel Sites and Snow Park Niagara, are making money and performing well.

The building, located at 462 466 Third St., sold for $130,000, with Niagara County businessman Joseph Anderson submitting the top bid during a foreclosure auction Monday at City Hall. The previous owner, City Councilman Steve Fournier Jr., used part of the building for a jazz club operation that closed in 2008. The other half of the building is currently home to Donatallo's restaurant.

Anderson buys Cafe Etc

Anderson's bid was one of two submitted during Monday's auction. An attorney for the NFC Development Corp. made the initial bid on the agency's behalf, offering $128,764, enough money to cover the full amount owed in principal, fees and interest on Fournier's loan agreement as well as back taxes owed on the property to the city.

Fournier Jr. had been working on an arrangement to sell the property to another owner that would have assumed control of both parcels and responsibility for all debt. Those plans never materialized and the auction went forward as scheduled.

"I'll leave the existing business in place," Anderson said. "I'm not looking to chase businesses out."

The Third Street jazz club formerly known as Cafe Women Canada Goose Solaris Parka Red New Zealand Etc. has a new owner with a familiar name.

Several years ago, Anderson, the man behind Smokin Joe's on the Tuscarora Indian Reservation, purchased a building at 500 Third St. to serve as home to SJ Anderson Graphics Embroidery.

Earlier this year, NFC commenced foreclosure proceedings on the property after Fournier Jr. failed to make good on the terms of the loan which called for him to re pay the $75,000 at 5 percent interest as part of a 20 year term. Records on file with the Niagara County Clerk's Office show Fournier, who was elected to the Falls City Council in 2008, owed in excess of $70,000 in principal, interest and late charges.

"The city is not in the land business so we're happy to see someone take ownership of the property and all of its rights and responsibilities," Iusi said. "Joe has a reputation for doing what he says he's going to do, so we are hopeful he'll put that building to good use."

At the close of the auction, Anderson said he had no immediate plans for the lounge area inside the former Cafe Etc. site, but does intend to begin renovation work on the upper floor of the two story structure which he hopes to turn into rental units.

Corporation Counsel Craig Johnson said the revenue generated through the sale to Anderson will be used to re pay the development corporation and the city, both of which he said will be "made completely whole" by the deal.

"The second it is closed, we'll start that day or the next day," Anderson said. "We're ready to start right now."

"Trent has been doing that all year long," Omdahl said of his ability to escape major damage with runners on base. "We've came to him as of late, and he's doing just as he has tonight. He's gone deep into games and won some big games for us."

Zimmerman, a hard throwing senior right hander, recorded the final six outs and four of those came via the strikeout.

The No. 4 seed Aggies scored six runs in their first at bat en route to a 10 4 victory over Northern Cass on Thursday, June 2, in the quarterfinals of the North Dakota Class B state tournament at Newman Outdoor Field.

The tournament setup called for runners to be placed on base at the beginning of an inning to settle the extra inning games at the tournament. The Miners scored after they were given a runner to start the frame on third base.

"I thought we would come out better out Women Canada Goose Dawson Parka Red Nz of the gates," Northern Cass coach Ron Leraas said. "We struggled to throw strikes.

Carlson, a junior left hander, worked his way out of a number of jams. He wiggled out of bases loaded jams in the fourth and fifth innings, then needed the help of Zimmerman out of the bullpen to get out of a bases loaded mess in the sixth.

"That really helped me going out there in the second inning with a six run lead," said PRFL starting pitcher Trent Carlson, who pitched into the sixth inning.

The Aggies sent 12 batters to the plate in the bottom of the first inning. Daman Flaten, Steven Thompson and Will Zimmerman had run scoring hits, while Northern Cass helped the rally with two runs scored on passed balls and one on a bases loaded walk.

Once a dominant species, the American chestnut was virtually wiped out by an exotic fungus from Asia called the chestnut blight. During the last 26 years, The American Chestnut Foundation worked with partners to develop a blight resistant American chestnut. Traditional backcross breeding with the blight resistant Chinese chestnut produced a blight resistant American chestnut that is 15/16th pure. Forest Service and University of Tennessee are monitoring blight resistance, growth and survival of the seedlings to determine whether the chestnut trees will survive and thrive in a real world setting," said Burhans. "This is all part of a larger landscape level effort to restore this keystone species to its native range."

In 2010, 500 more blight resistant chestnuts will be planted on national forests in the South. The website also features photos of recent tree growth, video of the monitoring process and historic information about the American chestnut.

Then came the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. By 1933, records show, the cost of the drainage project had reached $1 million without the farming success that had been predicted.

"The county was in terrific financial difficulties," Sannes said. "And that seemed to be one way to be able to bail both the state and the county out was to turn it over to the federal government again."

So began a process to restore the wetlands by establishing dikes and water control structures, much of which was done by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The refuge in 1961 was renamed Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge, and today, the refuge covers 61,500 acres.

"Everything here was settled by 1890, and that was the last area to be settled in the county," Sannes said. "It was a land rush, really the last free land there was."The Comprehensive Conservation Plan for Agassiz refuge describes the land before settlement as a "boggy wilderness, checkered with wetlands and ponds." In 1909, the plan explains, state, local and private interests embarked on a massive drainage project to convert the landscape to farmland.

According to DelRay Sannes of Holt, Minn., the effort to develop what then was known as Mud Lake into farmland came at the end of the European immigration wave. Sannes' grandfather, Hilmer Moberg, was among the 150 to 200 homesteaders to settle in the Mud Lake area of Marshall County.

Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge celebrates 75th anniversary

Located northeast of Thief River Falls, Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge was established March 23, 1937, by Franklin Delano Roosevelt as Mud Lake Migratory Waterfowl Refuge. The designation officially ended an experiment that began in 1909 to drain the land for farming.

According to the refuge's conservation plan, the Minnesota Conservation Department precursor of today's Department of Natural Resources acquired more than 55,000 acres of the tax forfeited land, which it sold to the federal government in 1937.

"It really created a lot of hard feelings in this area," said Sannes, a retired English teacher. "I've known quite a few of them over the years, and those hard feelings lasted it still is around even in the next generation, people who had never lived out there.

Sannes, who helped compile a history of the settlement and eventual relocation called "Memories of the Mud Lake Pioneers," said losing their land was difficult for the "Mud Lakers" who had called the area home.
