Crosslake candidates discuss city issues

It was standing room only at the Crosslake candidate forum Monday, Oct. 20 at the Crosslake Community Center. Questions ranged from topics like planning and zoning, Crosslake Communications, communication among the council and community, use of consultants and how to enhance the business community and fill open storefronts.

Crosslake has eight candidates three for mayor and five for council. Candidates for mayor include incumbent Darrell Schneider, current council member Steve Roe and resident Darren Mitchell. Candidates for council include Jeff Bisson, Brad Nelson, Dave Schrupp, Darrell Shannon and Doug Steele. Shannon was absent from the forum.

The forum, presented by the League of Women Voters Brainerd Lakes Area, began with a three minute opening statement from each candidate. Candidates were then given one minute each to answer seven prepared questions. The forum followed with audience questions, however, when the audience was asked for questions, none were submitted. After a five minute break, three questions gathered from the audience were asked of the candidates, and the forum closed with each candidate offering a two-minute closing statement.

Conservative deer season will lower harvest

Hunters may not see fewer deer when firearms deer season opens Saturday, Nov. 8, but regulations implemented to help increase Minnesota’s deer population will place more of those deer off limits, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said.

“By design, this year’s deer harvest will be one of the lowest we’ve seen in decades,” said Leslie McInenly, big game program leader. “In fact, our total harvest this year may end up coming in around 120,000, a level not reported since the early 1980s.”

Because hunters can only harvest bucks in some places and fewer antlerless permits were offered, the 2014 harvest will fall significantly from the 170,000 deer harvested in 2013.
