Government Shut-Down Leads to Weed Infested Waters - Due to a government shut-down, many Minnesota Lakes are becoming infested with weeds resulting in the inability to use the waters for recreation. Permits to harvest invasive weeds, which are issued by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, have been suspended because no one from the state is available to oversee the work.
