The Cloquet School Board is expected to set a new board-approved levy at its Monday night meeting Dec. 9, which will triple the amount the district currently levies taxpayers for each district student.

To the Editor: I feel compelled to share an inspiring event that occurred two days prior to Thanksgiving. On our weekly grocery trip to Super One, we checked out and parked the car next to the exit. Then, I accompanied my elderly mother, who is seeing-impaired, to the nearest bench to wait while I retrieved a food order from McDonald's. Returning in 10 minutes, we headed home. Upon arriving home, I glanced in the back seat...
To the Editor: I would like to use this opportunity to thank the kind and honest person who turned in to Super One my cash box (from the Craft Show) that I inadvertently (old age excuse) left in a shopping cart after the recent craft show. I also thank the Super One employee who received the box and brought it to the Service Counter. My wife called Super One and they had it there. So I went from feeling quite angry at myself to an increased faith in humanity. There are good people in our society. Thanks again, Bob Cresap, Cloquet
I am writing to clarify points made in last week's guest commentary by Enbridge Energy's Lorraine Little about the Carlton County Land Stewards and our activities to engage the public about the proposed Sandpiper Pipeline. The recent "Democracy in Action" forums were organized by the UMD Geography Department and students from the MN Public Interest Research Group.
Kirsten Rye, a seventh-grader at Esko's Lincoln Middle School, has been dancing since the age of 2. And now, at the ripe old age of 12, all her hard work and self-discipline will pay off as Kirsten dances the feature role of Clara in the Minnesota Ballet's production of "The Nutcracker" later this month. "Being Clara, as Kirsten Rye will be, is the dream of many ballet students across the country," attested Betsy Holcomb of the Minnesota Ballet. This is not Kirsten's first performance in "The Nutcracker," however.
After years of miscommunication born from land ownership issues, a University of Minnesota research center and neighboring Native American tribe are working to find common ground. The University's Cloquet Forestry Center is located on the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Reservation, and the two parties are now working to resolve communication issues and share the land. The LaPointe Treaty of 1854 created the Fond du Lac reservation, which is just more than 100,000 acres in size, and gave the tribe certain rights to the entire property, including the rights to hunt, fish and gather
If you're ever around kids for any extended period of time -- or even a not so extended period of time -- you'll observe firsthand they come up with some interesting, unique, hysterical and brutally honest observations about the world as they perceive it. My own offspring are no exception. When I find myself grinning or pondering something they've said, I jot it down, to remember, reminisce and share with others, here.
When Debora Zauhar started her job as jail administrator at the Carlton County Jail in 1983, data management wasn't done in the digital realm, as it is now. "Until we started utilizing computers for our data management," Zauhar said, "we used huge leather-bound register books which required the entry of statistical information." As Zauhar is able to demonstrate in so many ways, things at the jail have certainly changed in the 30-plus years since she was hired by Sheriff Terry Twomey, and they'll continue to change after her retirement, which is right around the corner. Zauhar has been witne
