Ice Fishing Facing Serious Challenges Wet conditions the past few years have produced a record number of water bodies in North Dakota that are managed as fisheries, manywithyoungpopulations of pike, perch and other species. However, another year of near-record early winter snowfall over much of the state is generating concern regarding access to these waters. Greg Power, North Dakota Game and Fish Department fisheries chief, said this winter is similar to the past two years when anglers had a tough time getting to some lakes to fish. "We're still in the first half of winter and already the state is blanketed, on average, with more than a foot of snow on the level," Power said. "Unfortunately, according to the latest long- term National Weather Service forecast for North Dakota, difficult winter conditions are expected until spring." As in other years with abundant snowfall, the Game and Fish Department has received some inquiries about removing snow from access areas, but Power said the department does not have the equipment or funding to maintain access to lakes in winter. "Some lakes have a few local individuals or groups that pitch in and try to keep access points open, but when the wind blows it can and does nullify all the work in short order," Power said. "In harsh winters, the cost to try to keep access open could easily run into the millions of dollars." A few fishing tournaments have alreadybeen postponed or cancelled due to poor access, Power said, and potential contestants should keep in contact with their local organizers on their tournament status. In addition to access issues, heavy snowpack has fisheries biologists concerned about the potential for low oxygen levels in many lakes. "History has shown that the likelihood of winterkill increases when substantial snow comes early and stays on the lake," Power said. '?s in the past during tough winters, we will undoubtedly lose some fish populations in some lakes to winterkill, but it's just too early to predict how many or which ones." Warm Up This January With Our New Chorizo Sausa0e Calzones Served Monday - Friday From 3 p.nL tl 5 I) nl 2 For $8.00 Two Norwegian Hunters Two Norwegians hunters, Ole and Sven, from Minnesota hired a pilot to fly them to Canada to hunt moose. They bagged six. As they started loading the plane for the return trip home, the pilot told them the plane could take only three moose. Ole and Sven objected strongly, stating; "Veil, last year we shot six moose and da pilot let us put dem all on board and he had da same plane as yours." Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded. Unfortunately, even on full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down on takeoff, crashing into the lake. Climbing out of the wreck, Ole asked Sven, "Any idea vere we are?" "Veil," Sven replied, "I tink we're pretty close to da same spot where we crashed last year." VNV Kid of the Week Continued from Page 1 in Drayton, Ariah went to school in Hallock. She told me she likes the Drayton School better because Drayton has a full salad bar at lunch time and Hallock only had a bowl of lettuce. I told her I got the impression that she seemed a little health conscious and she informed me that she was. However, she seems to have her life in balance because her favorite meal is a good steak and any form of potato. What does she like to do when she gets home from a hard day at school. She prefers to work on the computer but says mom has some cleaning chores for her to do first. As a matter of fact, she says she's currently banned from the computer until she finishes up a cleaning project in the basement. Enthusiastic and a good worker.., she's got a future. That took us to the "what was the last thing she did that she wasn't supposed to do but did anyway" question. She told be she like to sneak on the computer in the morning. She got caught but said her mom was pretty okay with it. This summer she plans to play outside a lot, which should be good fun for her and her family in the yard of their newly renovated home. She also is planning to put to good use the "Razor Scooter" she got for Christmas. Kind of tough using it now I'd think, but I get the impression that if given the opportunity, she'd give it a try. Ariah informed me without hesitation, that she would like to be a clothes designer when she grows up, which ties in closely with her love of art. She says she has a computer program that lets her practice designing clothes. She even drew out a few designs for me during the interview. If she could change one thing in the world, she'd get rid of the smelly, ugly garbage, like landfills. Her plan would be to make better use of the stuff to include recycling and maybe even using some of it in art, like potato skins. If she could bring one thing back from the past, it would be her great-great grandmother who she never had a chance to meet. Now, I have to tell you, this was a very interesting interview. Because of Ariah's energy and enthusiasm, the discussion often took off in other directions, providing me with some extra information. For example, I learned that she might be a little tough on guys. She said when she was in Hallock, there was this boy she kind of liked, but she after while she quit liking him because he laughed weird. Ouch. Tough situation, because she really enjoys a good laugh. I asked her if he might have been still in her graces but for the laugh and she told me yes. So watch your lauging guys. She also informed me that the tooth fairy doesn't leave you money if you loose a tooth for bad reasons. For example, eating too much candy. I never knew that either. All I ever found under my pillow when I left a tooth for the tooth fairy, was my tooth. Maybe it was trying to tell me something. Anyway, she was enlightening me on all sorts of things and we could have gone on for hours, but it was time for her to get back to class, so we had to end the interview. Probably a good thing because I was having trouble keeping up. So thanks Ariah for the education and the mental exercise, I really enjoyed it. Big thanks too for taking the time to talk to us and being this week's Kid of the Week. Drayton Public School Lunch Menu Through.
