Jim Kroll of Isle in 1982; the Mess reported frozen bays with reports of the rest of the lake not being far behind.

20 years ago: 2002

A ballot recount in Isle confirmed Dennis “Doc” Moss as mayor of Isle and Dean Miller as a new school board member in the Isle district; the recount had been requested by former Isle mayor, Steve Long. The margin was Moss’ 163 votes to Long’s 158. The Artists of Minnesota Traveling Mini Show was on exhibit at the Accent Gallery and Frame Shop in downtown Isle, which included works from local artists Sue Garvy and Joni Henningson. Each painting, including the frame, was no larger than seven by nine inches.
