It's a quiet morning in Carlton County, where the Hells Angels are "trickling in" today in preparation for a large gathering on Saturday, according to a public-information official.

Members of the motorcycle group began assembling Tuesday for the Hells Angels 2009 USA Run at Carlton's Lost Isle restaurant-bar, where it's renting space.

"They're not talking to us; they don't want to talk to media," said Jeff Edmonds, who works for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji and is working this week for Carlton County Sheriff Kelly Lake at the media center in the Carlton County Transportation Building. "They want to go about their own business."

Edmonds said police have been present and are taking necessary action, but that nothing serious has occurred. He said the Hells Angels are staying at several area campgrounds and hotels, including Black Bear Casino in Carlton.
