Curtis C. Bush, former humble Cloquet blueberry farmer, now hailing from humble downtown Cotton, Minn., has had his first book published by Savage Press of Superior, Wis. “From Blueberries to Blue Seas” is the story of how Bush transitioned from being a humble farmer to becoming a humble sailor on the not-so-humble high seas of the five Great Lakes and the Atlantic Ocean.
County Seat Theater Company will put on the play: “The Christmas Foundling” Dec. 8-11 and Dec. 15-18, at the Encore Performing Arts Center and Gallery.

When three Finnish strangers first contacted Lyz Jaakola in 2014 about her “Finndian” ancestry — part Ojibwe, part Finnish — the Cloquet native admits her first reaction was guarded.
