Aging runway needs to be lengthened
Lake Elmo Airport’s primary runway must be lengthened to meet current Federal Aviation Administration criteria for the aircraft already using the airport. But even if there weren’t new standards, airport officials say the existing pavement is at the end of its useful life, and it needs to be reconstructed. 
Lake Elmo Airport is located on Manning Avenue just south of the Washington County fairgrounds and serves personal, recreational and some business aviation users in the eastern portion of the metropolitan area. The Metropolitan Airports Commission owns and operates this airport along with five others.

Thin ice sinks Lake Elmo Lions ice fishing tournament

The ice was thick enough on Saturday, Jan. 30, for students from Tartan’s Relay for Life Team Dr. Cure to host an ice fishing tournament. Team We Cure Because We Care took care of the concessions. For many years, Tartan has been a top fundraiser for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. (Linda Baumeister/Review)

Contest cancelled second year in a row
Though Tartan High School Relay for Life students held their ice fishing tournament on Lake Jane the last weekend of January, the larger-scale Lake Elmo Lions Club Ice Fishing Contest planned for Super Bowl Sunday on Lake Jane was cancelled due to thin ice. 
The Lions’ ice fishing event will not be rescheduled, but the cash drawings still took place.
