Lakes; then it,s Highway 34 from Detroit Lakes,' said Conservation Officer Chris Vinton of Detroit Lakes. "Fish shelters located north of that line have to be off the ice no later than midnight, March 18." For border waters, the shelter removal deadlines are: Minne- sota-Iowa, Feb. 20; Minnesota- Wisconsin, March 1; Minnesota- North Dakota and South Dakota, March 5; Minnesota-Canada, March 31. Anglers are advised to remove shelters earlier, if ice conditions warrant. Those not removing shelters willl be prosecuted. Conservation officers may remove the struc- ture and confiscate or destroy it. It is also unlawful to store or leave a shelter at a public access. After removal dates, shelters may remain on the ice between midnight and one hour before sunrise only when occupied or attended. It is unlawful to improperly dispose of ice fishing shacks any- where in the state. Anglers should check with local refuse providers or landfills for disposal. Ice-fishing shelter approaching Minnesota's ice-fishing shelter removal dates are ipproaching, said the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Dark houses, fish houses and portables must be off the ice of inland waters no later than mid- night Monday, March 4, in the southern two-thirds of the state and Monday, March 18, in the northern third. Enforcement action will be taken if shelters are left after the deadlines. The March 4 removal dead- line applies to waters south of a line starting at the Minnesota- North Dakota border near Moor- head along H.S. Highway 10, then east along Highway 34 to Min- nesota Highway 200, east along Highway 200 to U.S. Highway 2, and east along Highway 2, to the Minnesota-Wisconsin border near Duluth. The March 18 deadline applies to waters north of that line. DNR conservation officers patrolling the Detroit Lakes area advise fish shelter owners along Highway 10 to pay special atten- tion to the deadlines.

We work closely with doctors and-health insurance companies to ensure you get well and we get paid, not necessarily in that order. Leave the billing to us. As with any medication, it is important to follow dosage instructions exactly as directed. Swallow whole. Do not chew or mouth sores may occur. Take with at least eight ounces of water to decrease likelihood of stomach upset. Do not take within three hours of ingesting any food, espe- cially peanut butter, oysters and gummy worms, as life-threaten- ing allergies have been known to develop. Common side effects include weight gain, insomnia, impotence, dry mouth, diarrhea, toe jam, headaches, fatigue and any other symptoms you aren't currently experiencing. The medi-miri pill only addresses current symptoms. Ailments created by the medi-miri pill require further medical evalu- ation and a second medication to alleviate the side effects of the first (currently in production, available next month, tentatively called the medi-miri 2). If you experience blurred. vision, and are unable to read the fine print on the medi-miri pill bottle, make an appointment to see your optometrist. It might be time to purchase a new set of bifo- cals. Serious side effects are rare but can include flatulence, paranoia, amnesia, difficulty breathing and paralysis of the extremities. On radically rare occasions cessation of heartbeat has occurred. If you or someone you know who is taking the medi-miri pill ceases to breathe or experiences cardiac arrest, terminate use and seek medical attention immedi- ately. Failure to do so may result in death. But, at least you can rest assured it will be a symptom-free affair. Call today! Follow Slices of Life on Face- book and hit "Like (please).

This is a non-surgical procedure. The donor's blood is removed through a needle in their arm and passed through a machine that separates out the blood-form- ing cells. The remaining blood is returned to the donor through the other arm. Most PBSC donors are back to their normal routine in one to two days. Marrow donation is a surgical procedure requested by doctors 24 percent of the' time. While the donor is under anes- thesia, the doctor uses needles to withdraw liquid marrow from the back of the pelvic bone, Marrow donors typically return to their usual routine in two to seven days. The Granite City Rotary has made an effort to increase the national bone marrow registry through Be The MatchTM for more than 15 years. St. Cloud Technical & Community College has hosted a bone marrow drive for the last three years, and this year is collab- orating with CentraCare Health System to reach a larger audience.
