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:Turn old middle school into veterans shelter
