Daily Edge for Thu. Feb. 28

ADIOS! We say farewell to February today (and good riddance, perhaps?) as relatively mild (though still well below normal) temperatures settle in for 36 hours or so, before another dip into the deep freeze.   We talk about some public land advancement, a bluegill battle and a cool shot in today’s Three Things.

S.47 PASSES.  In another resounding measure of bipartisan support for wild places and creatures great and small, the U.S. House of Representatives passed S.47 refunding the LWCF which expired last fall and setting forth a number of other conservation measures for public lands and national parks.

GILLIN’ EM!  The ND Bluegill Championship, hosted by the Bottineau Area Chamber of Commerce will take place this Saturday from 8am to 3pm on Lake Metigoshe.  The northern tier lake boasts huge bluegills, some of the biggest in the state, running up to two pounds in weight.

COOL COVER.  Check out this great shot of a frozen Lake Sakakawea from space.  The archived photo from 2012 depicts an ice-covered reservoir held in the records of NASA Earth Observatory, as taken from the International Space Station.


Stay Sharp!
