On Wednesday, Pallin will give two free 90-minute presentations on his trip at 3 and 5 p.m. in the auditorium at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College. He will talk about studying humpback whales, life at Palmer Station, and the various projects he worked on. The presentation will include short videos and photos of his time there. There will be a time for questions after the presentation.
Up to this point, most Cloquet residents have been unaware that eLogger even exists, unless they stumbled upon the business looking for the old Alamo Gun and Pawn Shop. Now tastefully remodeled, the eLogger building sits tucked away along Eighth Street, between Cloquet Avenue and Avenue B. “I can’t tell you how many pawn customers came in and we’d have to tell them, ‘Sorry, you can’t get a gun here,’” said Lingren, laughing.
Thumbs up to the city of Cloquet and all the people who worked on the park plans for the new and improved Pinehurst Park. While Pinehurst has always been the...
But will the Army National Guard’s motto — “Always Ready, Always There” — still hold true when the armory in Cloquet is vacated, as is proposed in a Readiness Center Transformation Master Plan (RCTMP) completed in January? Minnesota Army National Guard Colonel Larry Herke answered with an emphatic “Yes.”

There are plenty of stories of the less fortunate, and it’s easy to see those are the memories that stick with Prusak. The guy in a shack who slept under blankets and a layer of cardboard, the woman who complained her water was rusty … and Prusak found she recycled even her dish water by pouring it down the back of the toilet and explained she wasn’t using enough water to keep the pipes flushed out.
Tune into Jiffy Jeff’s Lost Oldies radio show Saturday morning, June 4, on WKLK 1230 AM and WMOZ 106.9 FM. The show runs from 9-11 a.m., but Parkhurst said he won’t be there before 10 a.m. so feel free to sleep a little late.

Worries about failing or inadequate privately owned septic systems around Big Lake were the big driver behind the formation of the sanitary district, but concerns about pollution from septic systems have also had to be balanced with the need to find an affordable solution.
Officials left no stone unturned for Tuesday’s planning commission meeting. In addition to Sherman Associates representatives Diane Dyste and Paul Keenan bringing more detailed site plans, Cloquet Planning and Zoning Administrator Al Cottingham presented again, as well as Cloquet Development Director Holly Butcher — who described the process the school district took to solicit and evaluate development proposals for the building — and City Attorney Bill Helwig. Helwig explained that because the school is an existing building and in legal terms a legal “non-conforming building” in light of today’s zoning standards, then as current zoning code requirements such as green space and don’t apply to existing built sites.
