James Montano had been assaulted in jail, which resulted in his jaw being wired shut at his previous hearing. Montano, 32, is charged with murder in the second degree of Andrew Gokee, 57.

A new Celebrate Recovery program is meeting Thursdays from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Common Ground Coffee Bar and Deli, 102 Ave. C, Cloquet.

It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. Contact Starr Marshall for more information at 218-851-5815. Marshall said the group is not just for addiction, and follows the Celebrate Recovery program.
"I understand the reaction to want to arm teachers, as we want to protect our students and staff," Cloquet Superintendent Ken Scarbrough said. "I think our best response should continue to revise our safety procedures with the latest available professional advice, work through our plans with local law enforcement and emergency responders. We should rely on law enforcement officers, including our SRO (school resource officer), to be our armed defense. There are way too many issues to work out with arming school employees to go there now."

Joyce and Jalmer Angell first built a go-kart track on their property to supplement the income for the growing family. Next, a driving range was added.
