Awesome August arrives to the sound of ... crickets. It's not that there's nothing going on, it's just the birdsong has stopped for the most part, leaving frogs, toads, and yes, crickets, to fill the silence. Plus how much rain we need over the weekend to get back to "normal," and a wildlife experience that is absolutely worth being on the road at 4:15am for ..read more

Green Visions: dumped goldfish are the finny canaries in the coal mines of our lakes

People still haven't got the message that turning unwanted goldfish loose into your local lake, pond, or slough is a bad idea. Despite education - and even adoption - efforts by groups like Minnesota Seagrant , goldfish are still finding their way into bodies of water in the state, where they could possibly spead disease to native fish. Even if your moral compass isn't sent spinning by dumping former pets or introducing non-native species into the food chain, it turns out that goldfish in your local lake or pond means more bad news: there is something very, very wrong with the water ..read more

My son sat with my wife next to Ed. Irina stood at the head of the bed next to him. I wanted my son to see how we respect the people who so selflessly teach and nurture us. I talked to Ed and my son at the same time. I explained how the eagle is sacred to us, is an intermediary between us and the spirit world and can carry messages there. Eagle feathers are given for achievement or courage. This was an eagle feather given to me for becoming a doctor, that achievement was partially Dr. Haller’'s. He had to have courage to face what he was up against now ..read more
