GRAND RAPIDS, Minn. — Rick Bain, Matt Roy and Ryan Webb were only a week into canoeing the entire Mississippi River and they already had hours of stories about wildlife and whitecaps to tell when they stopped in Grand Rapids on Tuesday, July 24. Lake Winnibigoshish was choppy with 4-foot rollers going in every direction a few days before, but instead of skirting along the lakeshore to avoid the waves, the three combat veterans decided to chance it going straight across.
DULUTH—Malachy Koons reapplied sunscreen three times by mid-afternoon while working rows of potatoes on the farm.

DRUMMOND, Wis.—Drummond in far northwest Wisconsin remained an isolated island among the floodwaters on Tuesday, June 19..

And it's going to take more than one river or lake receding for life to return to normal in the flooded town of about 450 residents in Bayfield County.

ON LAKE SUPERIOR — The large container filled with mud sat on the Blue Heron's deck looking like a blob of pudding. The cold, thick mud from Lake Superior's floor stayed in place as the University of Minnesota Duluth students prodded it with their fingers. At the urging of UMD instructor Angela Sharp, they held the mud to their noses to take a whiff. Then they took a small taste of the mud.
