To the Editor: Reader disappointed in Armory for not lowering flag
To the Editor: On Wednesday, Dec. 7, flags all over Carlton County and the country were lowered to half-mast in remembrance of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Except at the Cloquet Armory. That really bothers me. I have noticed a number of times when other places — Perkins; the post...

The giving season
After doing some calculations in her head, she asked what price the TV would be in the spring, which is when she figured she would have saved enough money. That’s when Santa Claus stepped in. His name was Jerry.

To the Editor: Thanks to Santa for caring touch
To the Editor: I would like to thank Santa Claus because he was so amazing with my grandson at the Pine Journal Open House last week. My grandson’s dad has been in ICU (intensive care) for over three weeks, and Santa showed such care. He didn’t just talk about presents, he talked...

To the Editor:Veteran coverage was very personal for reader
I always knew he was a jet pilot and a war hero .... but hearing of stories of him growing up in Cloquet and seeing pictures that I have not seen before brought me a bit closer to my cousin.

To the Editor:Turn old middle school into veterans shelter
Veterans have done so much in their lives, sacrificing everything to keep us safe. The least we could do is come together to give them a place to lay their head safely at night.

Guest Commentary: Standing firm for hard-fought progress, we’ll seek common ground with new administration

GUEST VIEW: Honoring service on Veterans Day, Election Day and every other day
