The Lone Wolfclick for a larger view

  He is called a "Lobo". This lone wolf was probably the pack leader, having been challenged by a younger or stronger male. The female chooses the winner. Ostracized by the rest of the pack, he's been seen quite a bit lately near Marcell. He looks healthy and does not seem too concerned about people or cars. He just seems to mind his own business. Still a wolf, he will have to avoid the pack and their territory, and survive.

The Sun Finally Moves North

The sun has started its northward journey.

The sun now sets in the southwest instead of nearly due south. The temperatures are on the increase. Hopefully, it doesn't mean we will get dumped on with a ton of snow. It is still cold.

Golden or Bald?

Eagles are feeding on the deer kills along the highways. Is this a Golden Eagle or a Bald Eagle? It's probably over 3 feet high, and is bigger than some mature Bald Eagles that were near it. We think it's an immature Golden Eagle, but let us know what you think (or know). editor@woodsnews.com

Memories of a Small Town
by Curt Newstrom

I am Gary LaGrange. I grew up in Marcell and married Jan Newstrom, daughter of Curt and Jennie Newstrom. Paula Alden asked us to have the book reprinted for the 100th anniversary which we did. We have 483 copies of Curt's Marcell book remaining and wish to find persons who would love to have a copy. We are willing to sell them for our cost plus shipping. The price is $8 and $5 for USPS postage.
Thank you.
