The biggest problem with the deer costume was the viewing window in the neck, explained Joe Broneak. It got steamed up.
It would have been a perfect run for 9-year-old Cambria Sundquist, if her boot hadn't fallen off toward the bottom of the tubing hill Friday afternoon. As Sundquist struggled to stand up without plunging her foot - now clad only in a sock - in the snow, Grandma Faye Groth came to the rescue, trudging partway up the hill to retrieve the boot. Sundquist was one of nearly 250 people who made their way to Pine Valley to go tubing last weekend, according to Community Education Director Ruth Reeves.
To speak or not to speak, that was the question at an informal work session between the Planning Commission and the Cloquet City Council Tuesday evening. More specifically, discussion centered around whether or not city councilors or city staff should speak - as private citizens or as elected officials - during any public hearing held by the planning commission and vice versa. "It's one thing to come to a public hearing and sit in an audience and listen - it's another thing to get up and address the Planning Commission," said City Planner Al Cottingham, broaching the subject of creating a ci
Grown-ups can play hockey too. This weekend at Cloquet's Northwoods Credit Union Arena, a total of 12 adult men's hockey teams will face off in a round-robin tournament organized by Joe Broneak, who also organizes the adult league in Carlton. This weekend's tournament is named after Tim Couture, a Cloquet man and friend who died in a motorcycle accident last October when he collided with a deer. Games begin at noon Friday at Northwoods and move to the Pine Valley arena when the high school team comes in to practice.
The house on Selmser Avenue had "good bones," according to Jim Mischler-Philbin, it just needed a little TLC ... plus a new roof, a furnace, water heater, more and better insulation and upgrades to the kitchen and bathroom. Thanks to One Roof Community Housing and grant money from the Cloquet Economic Development Authority (EDA), the three-bedroom home at 1210 Selmser Avenue got all that - and now it's on the market, waiting for the right family or person to walk in the door. That prospective homebuyer should have a steady income, but not too high.
Four adults and two juveniles are facing charges after members of their group waved a gun out the car window and made gang signs as the vehicle traveled up and down a road in Sawyer the afternoon of Feb. 2.
Cloquet native Jamie Langenbrunner made it through the National Hockey League lockout only to have his season derailed by a hip injury. Langenbrunner, 37, has a torn labrum in his left hip and will undergo surgery, which would likely mean a five- to six-month rehabilitation process. It will be the end of Langenbrunner's 2013 season and possibly his 18-year NHL career. The winger is working under a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Blues, and will become an unrestricted free agent in June. "Not exactly the way you envision things," Langenbrunner said in an interview with the St.
Good News! The Tubing Hill at Pine Valley is opening this weekend! The Hill will be open on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The International Olympic Committee's decision to drop both freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling competition from the 2020 summer Olympics is astounding. Um, rhythmic gymnastics and synchronized swimming. Need I say more? While those who pursue the above sports certainly work hard to master them, it seems insane that such marginal - and in my eyes, boring and undramatic - sports could ever be approved for the Olympics, much less beat out wrestling. The list of sports being considered to replace wrestling isn't much better.
Sunday's storm may not have dropped the foot of snow forecast by some, but it did give Carlton County a nice whitewash in the midst of a below average winter. "It was nice to have snow that makes it worthwhile instead of those pretend things we've been getting," said Cloquet Streets Supervisor Les Peterson, adding that he thought Cloquet got close to five inches of the white stuff Sunday. Rob Nelson didn't mind the snowfall either.
