“The equipment that we ordered was constantly delayed,” explained Anderson. “The brewing industry has really boomed, so the people who are manufacturing are delayed in getting parts to make the equipment. Once you decide to open a brewery you are a number on an extensive list. First you have to get your federal license before you can get approved, which took us just over six months to get our license. Then you have to go through the state, which was another six to eight weeks and then you go through the city. It is a tremendous process.”
“The older you get the more you do together because it takes two of you to do it,” one of the wives said, bringing a loud burst of laughter from the others in the group, while another added, “That’s the truth!”
The warm breezes of summer have blown away, leaving the cool crisp air of fall. The leaves have begun to turn vibrant orange, red and yellow around the Northland and will soon fall to the ground to be raked into large piles of fun. The beauty can be observed either on foot on a trail in the woods or by taking a scenic drive with family, maybe through a state forest. There are many options in Minnesota that are only a short distance away.
The FOA would like to remodel the old Carlton County building at 1001 Avenue B to be used for their shelter, including an outdoor kennel space to accommodate 12 to 15 dogs.
The little gray mission church has survived 132 years in the quiet wooded area. It survived the 1918 fire as well as being left empty twice, the first time from 1905 to 1925, and again the church was left silent and alone in 1964 when the new brick church was built next door.
“The training helps us understand what they are doing so we can work our goals and objectives into that plan and vice versa,” Buhs said. “Overall it's a better understanding so we can all work together to have a better outcome. Now we can work together more fluidly.”
In order to be donated to Locks of Love, the cut hair must measure a minimum of 10 inches. Genna’s shorn tresses measured 12 to 13 inches long and her hair still went to her shoulders after the cut.
There has been a search for other water sources since two of Cloquet’s wells were found to have high amounts of manganese, a mineral which occurs naturally in the environment. A Filter Plant Pilot Study presentation was presented during the work session before the regular council meeting. The plant would cost about $7.01 million to build and would remove the manganese from the well water.
Beck cut out and laminated his story from last year’s Pine Journal, and on their way to the Kansas Visitor’s Center this year, the Becks brought the story to show the workers the photograph of his tall flowers. The workers were impressed. The same sunflower seeds only grow to about six or seven feet tall in Kansas.
“To me it means that 123 other people who are heroes are still unsung,” Vainio said. “I could look around and see a lot of deserving people. Even just being in the same room with those people was way cool!”
