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.
CLOQUET-- Over two hours into Monday night's wrestling practice in Cloquet, Conner Denman neared exhaustion when teammate Mitchell Borchardt lifted him up on his final few rotating pull-ups. "We go until the last person," said a sweaty Borchardt, just minutes after encouraging his good friend. "You don't finish when you finish.
In the game of basketball, there are times when a team's performance or skills are termed to be "on fire." Last week, though, I believe the Cloquet Middle School boys basketball teams redefined that phrase. Getting ready to travel to nearby Barnum for their season opener last Tuesday afternoon, the Cloquet seventh- and eighth-grade boys basketball team school bus caught fire. No, not a little smolder, a real fire -- flames and all. "The flames were insane," said Lumberjacks co-coach Donny McCarthy, 43, not able to reach with his wingspan wide or high enough to describe their higher-than-th
ESKO -- Colliding heads with teammate Kole Zuidmulder earlier this season, Hermantown's Cade Zacharias stood outside the locker room Monday evening with the remnants of nine stitches above his left eye. "That's how we practice, I guess," said Zacharais, who scored a team-high 21 points en route to Hermantown's 77-70 upset over Class AA's top-ranked Esko in a boys basketball win Monday in Esko.
