DNR reminds public to play it safe on the ice this season

(AREA) -- With the arrival of winter and ice-related activities, Department of Natural Resources officials remind anglers, snowmobilers, skiers and others that no ice is ever 100-percent safe. Anyone who ventures out onto the ice is advised to keep the following precautions in mind--check with local sources of information -- such as the bait shop or corner store about ice conditions before venturing out, travel in pairs whenever possible and make sure someone knows where you are going and when you plan to return. With warmer temperatures and rain expected, area residents are warned that ice conditions could become extremely dangerous.
