Holiday times are for good friends, good food and good times. But Cloquet Area Fire District members want you to have a safe time, too. The sad fact is that winter holidays are a deadly time of year, because our traditions include the most common causes of home fires. In most years, cooking, candles and open flames account for almost half the residential fires in Minnesota. In the bustle and fun of the season, we can forget to be cautious--but at a high price, sometimes. Don't let a destructive fire ruin your holidays.

To the Editor: In the Nov. 21, 201, Pine Journal the Cloquet City Council news Mayor Bruce Ahlgren talked about merger with Scanlon. It stated that the former Mayor Putnam wouldn't talk merger and I am sure the new Mayor Bryant doesn't want to. These people are elected or appointed to represent the residents of Scanlon. At many meetings people have talked about merging with Cloquet but the council doesn't want to lose their job. I think the residents of Scanlon need to contact the council and ask to consider merging.
