A Detroit Lakes man made his first appearance in Becker County District Court on a felony charge Monday. District Judge Thomas Schroeder set bond at $10,000 against Daniel Hoard, 19, of 22692 State Highway 34. His next court appearance is April 3. Hoard is charged with third-degree burglary.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.
Question: We were hit by a vehicle from out of state. The investigating trooper noticed that we had the same auto insurance company and said this should be no problem. Since we do not have collision coverage the insurance company won't fix my car until the other person reports it to his agent. It has been two weeks already and we are still waiting. Could you please tell the troopers to check that both vehicles have collision insurance and if not to try and establish the responsible party? Answer: There is no such thing as a nice crash.
When I heard the ice break and the splash of water, I immediately suspected Charlie was in trouble. And that I might have no choice but to join him. Charlie is not a large lab, as Labradors go. But he was large enough on that cold December day last year to break through the fickle ice of a cattail marsh. While marsh ice always has the potential to be treacherous, I mistakenly figured it was certainly strong enough to support a dog this late in the year. Hesitating for a moment to listen for an indication that he had extricated himself, the sound of whimpering quickly told me otherwise.
Flat nose bullets have been necessary in lever action rifles. The tubular magazines of the Model 94 Winchester, the Marlin 56 and others required these in order to avoid recoil sending a bullet point crashing into the primer of the cartridge ahead of it. The Hornady bullet makers of Nebraska may have changed all that. A new sharp point, soft nose bullet is being loaded for the .30-30, 35 Remington, .444 Marlin and the .45-70 calibers.
Although many bodies of water in the Midwest are still covered with a layer of ice, the rivers across the region are starting to provide some walleye action. And much of that action is being provided by jigs. When opening day for walleyes rolls around, many anglers will have a jig on the end of their line, and as the season progresses, that jig might just stay on the end of the line. Jigs catch walleyes year 'round, but if we want to be more successful jiggers, we need to consider the type of jig we're tying onto our line. Jigs come in many shapes, sizes, and colors.
Two of the four camper cabins at Glendalough State Park, located in Battle Lake, are now available for year-round use.

"From the day we opened the doors, these rustic cabins have been in demand by park visitors," said Wiersma.
