By DAN OLSON Special to the Tribune Spring may not be the only thing in the air. Even in this pristine area, ozone and/or fine particulates can reach levels that cause health problems for people with respiratory and heart conditions. In the past there was no way for area residents to know when to take precautions. Now there is. A new automated air quality monitoring station just north of Detroit Lakes will trigger alerts when ozone and/or fine particles levels are high.
50 Years ago May 2, 1956 -- Mrs. Dora Kersting, rural Waubun, won $1,000 and a trip to New York City on the CBS television program Name that Tune. Tuesday was May Day, May 1, but as far as our icy lakes are concerned it didn't mean a thing. Jerry Muench, who operates Muench's Beach on Long Lake, drove a pick-up truck holding 1 1/2 tons of sand to sprinkle over the ice on his beach area. Muench was able to drive directly from the shore onto the ice, which is about 25 inches thick.
