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
You've heard of baptism by fire? Such was the beginning of World War II for Barnum graduate Donald Long. A member of the Barnum High School Class of 1939, Long started in the Navy in March 1941 after a stint in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in Tofte, Minn. By Dec. 7, he had been stationed at Kaneohe Bay Naval Air Station -- across the island of Oahu from Pearl Harbor -- as part of the VP-12 squadron for a few months.

Though the Cloquet-Esko-Carlton boys hockey team hasn't won in its first three games, Coach Dave Esse is seeing signs of improvement. First among those was a narrow 2-1 loss against defending Section 7A champion Duluth Marshall at Mars Lakeview Arena last Tuesday night. In that game, the 'Jacks (0-2-1) held a 1-0 lead after Kyle Klatt's first period goal, and kept that lead into the third period. Once there, though, a pair of power-play goals from Marshall's Luke Pavelich sank the 'Jacks in a 2-1 defeat. "It was better than I expected," Esse said, noting that the 'Jacks lost 3-0 to the Hil
CLOQUET--The school district called off all after-school practices Tuesday. It was an incongruous policy act for a ski team; however, it didn't seem to stop the Cloquet-Esko-Carlton cross country ski team from enjoying an unofficial gathering at the Pine Valley chalet and ski trails. First, assistant coach Dusty Olson arrived. He was there to get keys from veteran but new-to-us coach Glen Sorenson. Olson, an adventurer, had been in Bozeman, Mont., earlier in the week. He brought home with him his tackle boxes of ski waxing gear and waxing tables that folded like massage tables.
With school cancelled Wednesday because of heavy snow, Esko senior Paige Tranah was most likely on her skis. "If the mountain is open, I'll be there," said Tranah, who has been skiing since age 2.
