Mille Lacs Fishing Remains the Same

Anglers who fish Lake Mille Lacs will have some consistency from last year.  Fishermen will be able to keep up to four walleyes less than 18 inches, which may include one trophy more than 28 inches. Anglers must release all walleyes from 18 to 28 inches.

The season will open Saturday, May 14, with a regulation that will allow anglers

Starting July 15, if angler harvest is low enough to allow it, anglers may be allowed to keep walleyes up to 20 inches with one trophy more than 28 inches in the four fish limit. All walleyes from 20 to 28 inches would then need to be released.
“The walleye regulation is the same as last year and should provide anglers with ample opportunities to harvest some fish, very similar to last season,” said Dirk Peterson, DNR Fisheries chief. “The angling this winter has been pretty decent; anglers harvested nearly 24,000 pounds of walleye, which suggests a similarly decent bite for the open water season.”

For northern pike, the regulation will be a protected slot from 27 to 40 inches, with one trophy more than 40 inches allowed in the standard three fish possession limit. This regulation is a change from the 24- to 36-inch slot limit that has been in effect since 2002.

Abortion Back at the State Capitol

Both houses of the Minnesota Legislature will be considering legislation which would ban abortions after 20 weeks of gestation.

State Representative Larry Howes, a Republican from Walker, supports the effort calling it a step in the right direction. 

If it gains legislative approval, Governor Dayton, who is pro-choice would likely veto it.  Howes tells KLKS News, it is unlikely enough DFLers would cross over to override a veto.

On another topic, streamlining state government as a budget cutting tool appears to be catching steam.  Representative Howes says his caucus believes over $1 billion can be cut from Health and Social Services without affecting programs.  Minnesota is facing a $5 billion revenue shortfall for the coming biennium.

Oberstar Gets His Name on a Ship

(AP)  Another honor has come former Congressman Jim Oberstar's way.  The Interlake Steamship Company is naming an ore carrier after him.

An 805 foot ship built in 1959 will be dubbed the Honorable James L. Oberstar after the Minnesota Democrat.

Company President Mark Barker says they wanted to honor the former Chairman of the House Transportation Committee who made the Great Lakes a Priority.

Oberstar lost a bid for his 19th consecutive term in November when he was defeated by Republican Chip Cravaack.

A Slippery Morning

It was a bumper car kind of morning around the Brainerd Lakes Area as the result of the 2 inches of snow that fell Sunday night and Monday morning. 

Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl tells KLKS News, the switchboard was lit-up with calls from the number of accidents.  He says the intersections were especially tricky.

Dahl says while there were a lot of morning accidents, there weren't any reports of serious injuries.

Human Services Can Save Money

Minnesota Department of Human Services Commissioner Lucinda Jesson says her department can become more efficient and therefore save taxpayer money as the state battles with a $5.1 billion revenue shortfall.

The department controls 30% of the state budget.  Of that, 80 percent is allocated to the health care of the elderly, disabled and vulnerable children. 

Commissioner Jesson tells KLKS News, they can save money by improving the way they purchase health care procedures, and demanding a lower price.

Jesson just completed a tour of the Brainerd department facilities and said she is confident in the effectiveness of department employees here.

$13 Million for MN Taxpayers

The Internal Revenue Service has something for about 14 thousand Minnesotans who did not file a tax return in 2007, nearly $13.8 million.

IRS Spokesperson Sue Hales tells KLKS News, that comes to $604 on average.  She says even though some may not have to file an income tax return, there could be a big benefit if they do.

Hales says to collect this money, a 2007 tax return must be filed with the IRS no later than Monday, April 18, 2011.

Chief Bemidji to Get a Make-Over

(AP)  Chief Bemidji may get a face lift, in fact the re-do would involve the whole body.

The Bemidji City Council tonight will consider a request to make a more realistic statue of the Ojibwe leader who died in 1904.  The life-size or larger image would be made of stone, bronze or other permanent material.  It would replace the folk-art statue currently on display.

The project would cost around $116 thousand.  No public money has yet been requested.
