Mankato City Glen Elder Park pond stocked with first trout of 2011 The first trout stocking of 2011 in the Glen Elder Park pond occurred on Nov. 23 and consisted of 1,100 adult rainbow trout. These fish are 10 tel3 inches long and average quarter pound apiece, but a few four to five pound trout were stocked as well. An addi- tional 1,100 fish will be stocked in mid-January or after the ice thaws with another 1,100 in mid-February for a total of 3,300 fish stocked this winter. Each year, future stockings of the pond and all other waters will depend on license sales in the area. If enough licenses are purchased by local"anglers to justify the cost of the trout program, the trout stockings will continue each winter. However, if license sales fail to meet expectations or are annually lower than other trout areas, these trout may be reassigned to other areas with higher demand. Special regulations apply while fish- ing trout waters between Oct. 15 and April 15. All anglers are required to purchase a trotat permit if they intend to fish the park pond. Anglers 15 and younger are exempt. In addition, all residents 16 through 64 years old and non-residents 16 and older must also have a valid fishing license.

Not to say poinsettias are particia- lar, but too dry the leaves fall off,-t6o wet the leaves fall off. too cold :the leaves fall off. too hot the leaves fall off, too dark leaves fall off. A poinset- tia can stay attractive for  long time, but they do like things their way. The best place is a sunny window ( don' t let it touch cold windows), or at least the brightest area of the room. Day tem- perature 65 to 75 and nights 60 to 65. Temperatures above 75 degrees shorten bloom life, and below 60 may cause root rot. Move plants away from win- dows at night or draw curtains between them to avoid cold damage. AvOid over watering, poinsettias do not like "wet feet." But, if the plant is allowed to wilt, it will drop leaves. To maintain proper moisture, examine the potting soil daily by sticking your finger about one inch deep into the soil. If it is dry to one inch. the plant needs water. Water with lukewarm water until water runs out of the drainage hole, then discard the drainage water. Note: Poinsettia's are not pOiSOn- OUS. There's nothing really consistent about human behavior except its ten- dency to drift toward evil. i See us For OFFICE SUPPLIES - E Main St Mankatc an 785-378-3191 parents Emma Jean and Milton Connects;RachelandKaylaDuffy ....
