Third, I commend and am really excited for Lyz Jaakola, a local Anishinaabe musician, educator and member of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe. Lyz spent much of August in Finland as part of the tour for the book, "Fintiaainien mallla," about the Finndians, the descendants of Native Americans and Finnish immigrants.
I closed my eyes, listening to the ruckus, under the cool sheets on the bed, under the cool sheets of rain falling outside — finding peace and contentment in the unyielding strength of Mother Nature.
As magnificent as Jerry’s movie career was, people identify him most with his humanitarian efforts. For six years, he toiled anonymously promoting the Muscular Dystrophy Association before becoming the organization’s voluntary national chairman in 1956. As the face of the Muscular Dystrophy Association for 61 years before being unceremoniously removed in 2011, he hosted the 21 ½-hour Labor Day Telethon.
My family’s long-term relationship with public education will be complete in four more years. The world has changed in significant ways since we started this journey 19 years ago and there are more unfolding as we speak. The newest book in the Harry Potter series is available for diehard fans.

The two older boys went to work. My husband and youngest son proceeded to bicker — about anything and everything one can find to bicker about related to sticks on the sidewalk. They disagreed on stick gathering technique and how many sticks should be gathered in one armload.
LeClos pushed Phelps’ buttons and Phelps pushed back in exactly the right way. That’s why we have competitions, to see who is the best. Phelps showed it and responded in a way that was commensurate with his status as the most decorated Olympian of all time, and which reminded his trash-talking opponent that the way to hold such a discussion is in competition.
To mark this occasion we are happy to announce the First Annual Carlton County Farmers Market Harvest Festival! Our Harvestfest will be held Sept. 17 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., featuring guest craft vendors, free activities for the kids, and Chicken Bingo.
This daughter-mother duo had to-do lists. And lists of our lists. And sometimes lists of the secondary lists, or lists of each other’s lists. We even learned to take photos of our lists so we wouldn’t have to worry about the unlikely (but horrifying) possibility of misplacing or losing one.
