To the Editor: I am a volunteer for over 35 years at the Carlton Nursing Home/Inter-Faith Care Center. In 2008, I received the adult Volunteer of the Year award from the Care Providers of Minnesota for my work there. I still go there twice a week to volunteer because I care. I am writing because I feel that Inter-Faith Care Center has changed. The atmosphere doesn't feel as warm and friendly as it was -- there seems to be tension in the air. I've heard claims that the staff members are overworked and short-handed.
A Thursday night meeting of the Cloquet School Board spent as much time dealing with the issue of smoking among CHS students as it did on other business. Rescheduled from its usual second Monday night meeting due to Veterans Day, the board met last Thursday night and spent a portion of its evening discussing the policies and effectiveness of smoking enforcement after a citizen complained during the public comment period about insufficient efforts made by the district to curb smoking. The discussion centered around an area referred to by former CHS Assistant Principal Connie Hyde as the "Ring
CLOQUET -- It's not unusual for Dave Otterson to greet you with a hug. "Mr. Otterson," as most of Carlton and St. Louis counties know him, is good at making a person feel comfortable.
Cloquet City Councilors are taking a long look at their long-term planning process and whether that process might eventually include merger talks with the city of Scanlon. City Administrator Brian Fritsinger discussed the results of a recent retreat with Cloquet City Councilors prior to their Tuesday night meeting and said that of the issues potentially facing the city, talks with Scanlon might add to an already crowded plate. "The issue is to save money for taxpayers," Fritsinger said.

Jessica Bird admitted there were days growing up when she and her twin sister, Jamie, got on each others' nerves. Nowadays, they just do it to their opposing coaches. The 14-year-old freshmen from Barnum mean a lot to the Moose Lake Area girls hockey team, as Jamie serves as a blue-line defender, while Jessica is a high-scoring forward. Both have been on the varsity since eighth grade, and both -- despite their young age -- are valuable assets on the ice. "Just to have a set of twins is nice, but to have a set as talented as they are is exceptional," said Rebels Coach Joe Mohelsky, in his
ESKO -- As an avid basketball player, Casey Staniger has suffered pain, but perhaps the most painful time came when he crutched out of the Target Center last March. "I've gone through some injuries before, but the fact that it was down there -- it was just was difficult," said Staniger, who sprained his right ankle and couldn't continue in Esko's 72-47 defeat to Litchfield in the Class AA boys basketball state semifinals last year in Minneapolis.
CLOQUET -- Cloquet senior Dillon Johnson is your typical catch-and-shoot, right-handed basketball player.
Makayla Langenbrunner loves hockey so much she's willing to play her favorite sport wearing a green cast. The Cloquet sophomore's never-give-up attitude has perhaps influenced the entire Cloquet-Esko-Carlton girls hockey team this season. Despite battling a slow start, the traditional challenge-seeking Lumberjacks look hopeful. One of CEC's top scorers as a freshman center last winter, Langenbrunner -- second cousin to Jamie -- snapped her wrist after jamming it with the goal pipe in an early-season scrimmage.
