Largemouth bass regulations placed on two Stearns County lakes in 2006 may be made permanent.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says the regulations on Long and Crooked Lakes allow anglers to keep bass more than 20 inches long and release the fish between 12-20 inches.
Since 2006, the average size of largemouth bass has increased and will continue to grow if the regulation is continued.
The DNR is looking for public opinion about making the regulations permanent at an upcoming meeting. People are invited to speak up about the proposal Thursday, October 15 at Lynden Town Hall in Clearwater. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.

Authorities have released the name of a Duluth man who was fatally shot by a Kanabec County sheriff's deputy outside a home in Mora.
The Ramsey County medical examiner's office identifies the man as 37-year-old Robert Sullivan Christen. He died of multiple gunshot wounds.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says Christen was punching Deputy Shanna McIalwain in the head when the deputy shot him.
McIalwain has been with the sheriff's office for 1 1/2 years. She was placed on standard administrative leave.
Sheriff Brian Smith says it happened around 9 p.m. Wednesday when the deputy responded to a call from a woman who said a man was on his way over to harm her. When the man drove up, he says, the deputy ordered him to stop, but he continued advancing and attacked the deputy.
The suspect died at the scene. The deputy was treated for minor injuries.

St. Cloud State is helping some athletes pay the total cost of attendance beginning next fall.
The so-called "cost of attendance" policies go beyond the tuition, fees and room and board expenses covered by traditional scholarships. They would cover additional things such as travel expenses and extra food.
The St. Cloud Times reports the policy will start in fall 2016 for men's and women's hockey, where the school plays Division I. The Huskies are Division II in other sports.
Athletic director Heather Weems says the change has been driven in part by lawsuits against the NCAA over what some people see as profiting from athletes, especially in football.
North Dakota State and the University of North Dakota recently announced similar moves.

The executive director of HMML, Father Columba Stewart, says experts travel to Middle East, Africa and India to collect electronic copies of religious and other manuscripts. He adds the threat of the Islamic State in Middle East has added significance to the need of maintaining a copy of manuscripts for future generations. This project began in 2003 with the purpose of preserving endangered manuscripts by archiving them digitally.
Stewart adds the main purpose is to photograph manuscripts and make them available to all users internationally. The grant covers the expense of cataloging materials until 2021 and helps to launch an online reading room in early 2016.
This is a second major grant given by Arcadia to help HMML preserve manuscripts from around the world. HMML has received more than $331 million from Arcadia so far.
