Why DU? By Bill Liedman In the fall of 2007, local Ducks Unlimited mem- bers each received a post card encouraging the Kimball Area to start a local DU Chapter. Three people attended that first meeting and the mem- bership has grown ever since. Our intention is not to just promote ducks, but clean environment for all. After our first ban- quet, many attendees said they were very happy to finally have a local banquet. During the course of our development, I've heard some negative comments regarding DU, - 12,000,000 acres in North America have been pro- tected and improved to be productive wildlife areas. Many of these areas also produce turkeys, pheasants, deer, and other wildlife as well. Since 1985, in Minnesota alone, 316,063 acres have been improved at a cost of nearly $37,000,000. The DU Habitat Projects map indicates projects that have been completed prior to the end of 2006. The duck population seems to be dwindling. I for one, would miss that beautiful pair of wood ducks in our yard, picking acorns or that pair of mallards feeding in a roadside pond. How I love the sound of that flight of honkers in the moon- lit sky. Please help preserve and improve as much hab- itat as possible. Attend the local Sportsmen's Night Out Banquet March 26 at Powder Ridge. Junior Natalie Stein: 8 points and 5 steals vs. Howard Lake.

Maple Lake won a tight 39-37 game, where Kimball could not make a run of any kind in the game to pull ahead and take a convinc- ing lead. Kimball's scoring line was as follows: Sarah Messer 6, Tess- lynn Callander 6, Rachel Arnold 6, Megan Garding 5, Natalie Stein 4, Shannon Donnay 4, Mandy Wit- tenbrg 4, and Liz Kastanek 2. Friday, Feb. 12, things didn't improve for the Cubs, as Howard .Lake showed early why they are the numb& one team in the con- ference, as they jumped out to an early 37-10 halftime lead to elimi- nate any hopes of a Kimball upset. Howard Lake finished with a 65-39 win and remained undefeated in conference play. Kimball was led by Arnold's 9 points, followed by Stein with 8, while Callander and Garding each had 7 points. Wit- tenberg scored 4, Messer 2, and Kayla Myers 2. The loss is the fourth straight for the Cubs drop- ping their record to 11-10 over- all, as they have only one sched- uled game at Rockford 'next week Thursday, Feb. 18. Go Big Blue!
