Name: Dakota Ziells School: Cloquet Middle School Grade: 6 Parents: Jennifer Ziells Who nominated this student and why: Laura Nitsche, speech teacher "I nominate Dakota because he has a positive attitude towards learning. He works hard on his communication goal with me and tries his best to get us laughing with his funny sentences that focus on his speech sounds.

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.

Thanks, Good Samaritan To the Editor: I wish to take this opportunity to thank the Good Samaritan for her wonderful act of kindness Dec. 9th at Super One. It was appreciated more than she will ever know. God bless you! Marilyn Steffer, Cloquet
I am a hot mama -- although not in the way you might be thinking. I am hot, but I'm not referring to a trendy or hip sort of fashion, which, ironically, might also be thought of as cool. I am hot as in Hades hot. Temperature hot. My husband is not. (Hot in a temperature sort of way, that is.) It didn't used to be like this. In our early years of marriage I suffered from chilled-to-the-bone syndrome. Brrrr was practically my middle name, especially at night. I wore winter pajamas -- the kind with the feet built right in. I piled on thick quilts and comforters -- the more the merrier.
