ELLSWORTH -- If you’ve ever attended the Minnesota State Fair, then chances are you’ve visited The Original Deep Fried Cheese Curds booth. Owner Dick Mueller and his family were the first to introduce deep fried cheese curds to the event in 1975. This spring Dick announced his plans to retire and it was hoped that he could pass the business on to his son, Tom, who would continue the tradition at the fair.

Eastern gray tree frogs are common around our place. We see them stuck to the front windows of our house on damp mornings. Their toe pads allow them to cling to vertical surfaces. They make resonant trilling calls on humid days long after their breeding season in the spring. Gray tree frogs are masters of camouflage. They can change color from gray to green with dark mottling, to mostly green on the background color of their habitat.
