    It's Spring: 'Ice-Out' Declared on Lake Winnipesaukee in NH
    Roger

    In a New Hampshire tradition, "ice-out" has been declared on Lake Winnipesaukee.

    Emerson Aviation made the call at 5:40 p.m. Thursday during a flight.

    An "ice-out" is when the M/S Mount Washington tourist boat can safely travel between its ports on the state's largest lake without encountering ice.

    Last year, "ice-out'' occurred on April 17 and it happened on March 18 in 2016, the earliest recorded "ice-out'' for the lake, and the first one declared in the winter season.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    "Ice-out" generally occurs the third week of April.

    The latest "ice-out" was in May 1888.
