This is a story? Renowned photog? Pictures don't look any different than what my kids take. Waste of digital and print space.

As an avid ice angler the first thing I spotted on the cover photo was a big "what NOT to do" - a propane tank next to a heater inside a fish house. I've seen one too many fatalities caused by this mistake.

How embarrassing. This cover picture has overweight people drinking beer in some fish shed. Why doesn't the star tribune focus on healthy choices and do an article on the hundreds of minnesotans that ski 51 km in the American Birkebeiner ski race?!! Skiers come from all over the world to compete in this event, some being past or future Olympians. A Minnesota man took 2nd place this year, and it got 2 paragraphs on page 6 of the sports. If we are going to do something to reduce the obesity epidemic, we need to focus on healthy sports...

@janjava Sorry our choices for relaxation embarrass you. Minnesota is a very politically correct state. Prevail upon the people in charge that you disapprove of such activities and you will probably get some response and action.
