Am I sure I"m not in NYC seeing a Broadway performance? "The Last 5 Years" is SO amazing! To start with, the "script" - really a libretto - is as well crafted as any classical opera, and as demanding. The performances by Ian and Molly could have been taking place at The Met. The direction and set were perfect, and to think Ian has done all that plus producing, directing, and organizing the Broadway in the Boundary Waters theater program, working with the youth theater summer workshops, and managing NLAA all at the same time! He even takes tickets. Does he ever sleep?! Ely is so fortunate to have this talent. We could have to drive or fly someplace and pay 10x the ticket prices for this quality theater, but here it is in our little town. Please support it - donate and go to performances. Tickets are still available for tonight at 7 and tomorrow at 2.

Congratulations Consie Powell and Polly Carlson-Voiles !

"Star Party" by Polly Carlson-Voiles is an enchanting children's book about the wonders of stargazing. It offers beautiful illustrations by artist Consie Powell that inspire awe of the universe above and the wonders of nature in our midst. The story presents the characters' love for the night sky in a way that is both educational and entertaining, taking readers on a journey through the forest to a lake reflecting the beauty of a clear night sky undimmed by city lights. "Star Party" is a gateway for young readers to discover the magic of the stars and the beauty of the cosmos, making every stargazing experience an unforgettable adventure.

Hard at work on the Summer Times for 2023. It's really so great to get to talk to folks - this year elders 90 years and up. Here's a sneak preview of one page. With tons of gratitude to John Ratzloff for his amazing photography and to Ely's elders who shared their stories plus the many more with great stories to share that I didn't get to.

There's so much to do in Ely in the Winter! You can rent any winter recreational gear you would need including snowmobiles, ice-fishing houses, XC and Hok skis, kick sleds, winter bikes, camping gear including tents with stoves, sleep systems, and more.

Had the disappointing news Wednesday evening that the Winter Times won't be here until Wednesday next week - another delay now due now to shipping issues. But then we had this wonderful Thanksgiving gathering and the realization that there is so much to be grateful for, especially living here in Ely!
