Cloquet, Esko and Wrenshall schools are operating on a two-hour delay today (Tuesday, Dec. 3).

Even though you haven't had any of the regular symptoms yet, you're pretty sure you are. Still you take a test, waiting on pins and needles for the outcome. It isn't long before the result is in. You dial your husband's number at work and spill out the sentence even before saying hello, "Honey, we're pregnant." Pregnancy is an exciting time. It's also a time to pay special attention to healthy lifestyle habits. One key area is diet.
Anything that is not the gray color of tree trunks or the brown shade of the leaves of the forest floor is sure to show up in the woods at this time.

The beloved American film, "It's a Wonderful Life," is transformed into a new stage musical in "Miracle in Bedford Falls," created by Mark Cabaniss and Lowell Alexander. The County Seat Theater Company of Cloquet will present this wonderful new musical for the holidays. "Miracle in Bedford Falls" retains all the elements that have made this story unforgettable, while adding memorable, toe-tapping music. Good guy George Bailey, portrayed by Keith Chapin, dreams of traveling the world but instead stays home in Bedford Falls to run his family's small-time building and loan company.
