The wreckage of a twin engine Beechcraft Baron was found by searchers last Friday in a remote area of the Paul Bunyan State Forest, 18 miles west of the Walker Airport and 5 miles southwest of Kabekona Lake. Authorities speculate that weather and poor visibility played a role in the crash, which claimed the lives of two pilots from Fargo. Air and ground search parties worked for seven days before locating the craft.

Private contractors and the Cass County Land Department are making good progress salvaging timber felled by the August tornadoes near Backus and Outing. Six crews are presently at work. Since late August, operations have yielded about a quarter million board feet, according to Fay Harrington, IRRC Forester assigned to Cass County Forest Management.

The county eventually will be able to save more than a million board feet; however the value will be down because of waste and lower prices received for stumpage.
