TOMHAVE TALKS: Tales of duct tape and grit
We arrived in Duluth as the sky began to ignite. The vibrant colors of nearing sunrise accompanied the rising temperature. Excitement buzzed in the atmosphere while runners filed into busses shuttling us to the start. The bus rides there put the distance in perspective, we would be...

CATBIRD SEAT: Hey Dad, where’s your wallet?
For one thing, the home team actually won, which meant over 29,000 onlookers could tell their kids they saw a victory in the flesh. The other good thing was the way the Twins looked when they did it.

Guest Opinion: Landfill closure sparks need for change
One of the most important things you can do is recycle at home, work and school. Recycling supports local businesses, such as Cloquet Sanitary Service, and creates 40,000 jobs statewide. When you recycle, you generate profit for your local economy. In 2010, recycling programs in Minnesota...

Slices of Life: Buying a car
Her second car was a little red convertible. We bought it when she wasn’t yet old enough for kindergarten. She saved most of the money for it herself — from birthdays and other gifts. Pretty good for a preschooler. This second gem had an operational foot pedal and was battery-powered...

Senior Legal Line
It's very important to remember to be respectful and empathic during this move. It is likely that your grandpa has already given up some other things he used to do or given up his home to live in the senior apartment, and this may feel like he is giving up the last bit of his independence....

Notes From the Small Pond: Father’s Day
Dads get old. I should’ve been smart enough to make my peace with that before mine died. For some reason, I didn’t. I loved not being the boss of my dad.

How low can some people stoop? It has been reported to me that several cemetery baskets and ornaments have been taken again this year from the Forest Hill Cemetery south of Cromwell on Highway 73. How do you go up to someone’s loved ones grave and take the special flowers or things...

Slices of Life: Gardening with the boys
My boys have big muscles, but they also have big feet, and this was never so obvious as when they attempted to tiptoe through a freshly planted bed whereby the plants themselves seemed to attract those monstrous feet like a magnet. Squish. Some of those unfortunate plants didn’t...

Slices of Life: Defining character
Slices of Life By Jill Pertler ***** I’ve been contemplating character lately. Not as it pertains to Mickey or Donald. I’m referring to character — as in what you stand for as a human being. To a large extent, your character defines who you truly are. And whether it is good...
