The deadline for sheker removal in the northern part of the state, March 16, remains the same. Shelters must be removed from the ice by these dates. The other important change is that fish houses/shelters statewide can be on the ice between midnight and one hour before sunrise when occupied or attended after the March 2 and the March 16 deadlines. This exception had previously applied only to fish houses/shelters north of the east-west line formed by U.S. Hwy:. 10, east along Hwy. 34 to Min- nesota Hw. 200, east along  200 to U.S. Hwy. 2, and east along Hwy. 2 to the Minnesota-Wisconsin border. The walleye and northern pike sea- sons on inland waters closed Feb. 22. Update to 2008 fishing regula- tions handbook allows ice anglers to get some extra fishing opportu- nities. Minnesota ice anglers will have extra fishingopportunities in March because of some changes that were made late in the 2008 Legislative session but not included in the regulations handbook. "These changes will allow anglers to enjoy some late season ice fishing," said Capt. Ken Sor- ing, acting Department of Natural Resources Enforcement chief. The updated regulations are available online at <>. The fish house/shelter removal deadline for the southern part of the state is March 2, rather than March 1, as originally printed in the 2008 Junior Tesslynn Callander moves the ball up-court with junior Sara Messer close behind. Despite the team's efforts, the Cubs lost to the BBE Jaguars Thursday, Feb. 19, by 54-28. Staff photo by Marguerite Laabs.

Staff photo by Marguerite Laabs[ By Barry Strand, Coach The seventh-grade boys' bas- ketball team played in the annual Central Minnesota Junior High Basketball Tournament Saturday, Feb. 21, at Rockford High School. The Cubs first-round game found them facing EV/W. The Cubs were able to jump out to a quick 24-10 halftime lead and would win their first game of the day by a score of 40-14. The team's defensive play set the tone with solid rebounding and aggressive- ness on the ball defense and team mates who were ready in the pass- ing lanes to take advantage of any passes that they could get a hand on. The second round game put the Cubs against the Irish of Maple Lake. The Cubs again started fast and were able to keep the Irish off balance with both aggressive defense and smart offensive plays that gave the Cubs easy baskets off of back door cuts, and nice drives to the basket. The Cubs led at the half by a score of 19-11 and would close the game out with a score of 40-29. With the win, the Cubs would move on to the champion- ship game. The championship game found the Cubs playing a tough team from BBE. The Cubs started slowly on both ends of the floor and saw BBE jump out to a half-time score of 27-8. We were feeling the effects of our two earlier games and didn,t get the same intensity to start the game. The Cubs were able to regroup at half and come back with a renewed energy. The Cubs would win the second half in scoring, but were unable to make up the differ- ence from the first half of the game losing by a score of 32 - 49. I am really proud of how the team played in this tournament. Six players playing three games in the course of six hours is a lot to ask. At the end of the day, the Cubs overall record stands at 7-5. The Cubs close out their season with a home game versus Rockford Thursday, Feb. 26. The team and I would like to thank all of the parents and fans for their support at all of our games this season. It's that kind of effort on everyone's part that makes us successful. Go Cubs!
