Injured Eagle rescued on September 11th

Last Tuesday, 9/11, while on my way to work I got a call from home. Jo, my wife, told me she heard some thrashing in the water by our beach. She assumed it was a raccoon, fox or some other small sized critter. It wasn’t.

It was an immature bald eagle that we’ve been watching all summer since hatching at his nest on the end of the peninsula. (Yes, that is the peninsula on the Northland Press’ masthead above.) The eagle’s family lives about 1/8 of a mile from our home on Lake Washburn and we see them daily, flying from big tree to big tree, many times landing just 20 feet from our door.

The young eagle appeared to be seriously injured and couldn’t get off of the ground, much less get home.

Future of Crosslake Yard Waste Dump Site to be determined

The Crosslake City Council took no action on a recommendation from the Public Works Commission to permanently close the city’s yard and brush waste dumpsite when it met in regular session Monday,  September 10. The site has been closed since May because non-residents and commercial users have dumped so much material there the city cannot process it.

The site is intended to be used by Crosslake residents to dispose of yard waste. There is no money in the current budget to staff the site to make sure that only Crosslake residents use the site and that only yard waste is deposited there.

Public Works Director Ted Strand told the Council that he had hoped to open the site Fridays and Saturdays on the honor system on a trial basis, but the members of the Public Works Commission were firm in their recommendation to close the facility permanently, he said.

Funding Support for Crosslakers Dog Park Growing

One of the first businesses to show their support of the Crosslake Dog Park was the Crosslake Veterinary Hospital. They made a very generous donation of $1,000 to kick-start the business fundraising efforts. Exercise and a safe place for dogs to socialize is an important ingredient to having healthy animals in our community.

The Crosslakers Dog Park Committee states that they are very close to being able to get the fencing installed for the Dog Park this Fall. In addition to donation containers spread around Crosslake, there have been multiple “awareness donation opportunities” in front of Kicks on 66, Moonlight Bay Restaurant, the Crosslake Community Center, and at Music in the Square.

Those efforts have allowed the Dog Park Committee to raise just over half of the $5,000 match challenge grant for personal donations. However, without a groundswell of additional support, we may lose the chance to capture the remaining matching funds.
