Make good choices. Stop and think and don't bow to peer pressure. It's the same thing we've been telling you since you were in elementary school and it will keep happening your whole life. It's up to you to be a strong, self-aware individual in charge of your own life. Don't be afraid...

OUR VIEW: The watchdog role of the press is vital to a healthy democracy, so is civil public debate
Since that March 16 meeting, we've gotten to watch democracy in action. It's been exciting, and it's been messy.

While we're at it, thumbs down to the city's very slow response to the Pine Journal's multiple requests for public government data. It's been more than six weeks for three requests, four weeks for another three ... and the city seems to have misplaced a recording of a public council...

While we wish the best for Fritsinger, who has been the Cloquet city administrator here for close to 18 years, his departure will be a great loss for the city. During his tenure, Fritsinger has been at the epicentre of a city that planned its expenditures five and 10 years into the...

Our View: Fight homelessness with information
But all people completing the survey will receive a bag with useful supplies for daily living including hats, socks, matches, shopping cards, and food, and more. Hopefully, they will also make connections that can help them get out of their current homeless situation.

OUR VIEW: Where do residents’ rights fit in landfill debate?
Added organic matter creates methane — which smells and can explode if not managed properly — and that’s why the cap was set at 20 percent when the industrial landfill in the city limits of Cloquet was approved almost six years ago.

FROM THE EDITOR: Make the world a better place — read the newspaper
They can create fake news and dupe thousands. How do you know what is real and what is not real online when you can find a website to support whatever version of the “facts” people have chosen to believe?

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.
