A recording of an emergency meeting of the Cloquet City Council in March — a meeting that was closed to the public shortly after it began — appears to confirm that city officials likely violated the state's open meeting law during some parts of the meeting.
Members of the Cloquet Area Fire District were combing Big Lake for two hours Thursday, Dec. 7, looking for a snowmobile that may have fallen through the ice. The search on the large lake west of Cloquet was unsuccessful, CAFD Chief Kevin Schroeder said, because there was no snowmobile. It was a dog. And it didn’t fall through the ice.

From the outside, it is any house. White with dark shutters, the number 837 large above a black mailbox. Enter the back yard, though, and you will be transported into a world of witches and werewolfs, pumpkin headed monsters with glowing eyes, skeletel hissing pets, Chuckie and his bride, and many more faces that watch in the night.

A semi truck slid off Interstate 35 at the St. Louis River in Scanlon at 4:43 a.m. Friday morning, leading to a search and rescue operation that lasted several hours. Ultimately, the driver was found deceased in the river after rescuers from numerous law enforcement and firefighting agencies came together to search for him.
A 66-year-old Cloquet woman died Sunday morning after she was hit by a vehicle near the entrance to the new middle school.
In a surprise move, Mayor Dave Hallback and the Cloquet City Council voted 4-3 Tuesday to remove the “interim” part of the title and appoint former police Sgt. Jeff Palmer as the new Cloquet police chief without going through the usual hiring process.
Cloquet City Councilors will discuss how to proceed with hiring a new police chief during tonight’s public work session, set for 5:30 p.m. (Tuesday, Oct. 17) at Cloquet City Hall. The city has had an interim police chief since March. Although they can watch, citizens are rarely allowed to speak during a work session. There is time set aside for public comments toward the end of the formal meeting, which starts at 7 p.m.
