Public meeting to be held July 22 in Fifty Lakes regarding Enbridge Sandpiper Pipeline project

The Whitefsh Area Property Owners Association (WAPOA) wants to inform and educate all lake groups about the impacts of the pipeline that is proposed to go through the North Central Lake Region of Minnesota and the alternate routes proposed by groups like Friends of the Headwaters (FOH).

WAPOA has invited Richard Smith, FOH President, a local environmental group in Hubbard County opposed to the location of the proposed Enbridge Sandpiper Pipeline through our lake country in Hubbard, Cass and northern Crow Wing Counties to speak about the proposal. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 22 at 4 pm at the Fifty Lakes Foundation Clubhouse, Fifty Lakes.

FOH has studied this matter extensively with good science and needs the support of other lake groups/associations and their proposal(s) for alternate routes for the Sandpiper Pipeline. The Hubbard County COLA are active in supporting FOH and the alternate route plans presented. WAPOA is taking this opportunity to coordinate and encourage other COLAs, LARAs and lake associations in our area and along the Enbridge route to hear the FOH alternate route proposal(s) and support the efforts of FOH.

Decade 7 next for Crosslake Outdoor Music Series

One of Crosslake’s only local bands will take the stage with 1970s rock ‘n’ roll hits on Saturday, July 26, as part of the Crosslake Outdoor Music Series in Town Square. The show begins at 7 p.m.

The band includes seven members, all of whom are locals: Brad Wallace with vocals, Jim Cervin on keys, Paul Boblett on bass, Bart Wallace on drums, Joel Jenkins on guitar, Jeff Boozell on guitar and Bethany Rohr on vocals. Boblett, also editor of the Northland Press, says the fact that everyone’s a local makes playing here a blast.

“The setting and the familiarity of the people that come make it really fun,” Boblett said, adding that the band loves playing for family and friends. Decade 7 has played the Crosslake Outdoor Music Series for three years now. They’ll play twice this summer, both July 26 and to finish out the series on Aug. 30.
