Ezra Szczyrbak sang at his high school choir concert Monday evening, but it's the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Moose Lake senior's voice that's best heard from the football field. Szczyrbak is in the field of 10 Mr. Football finalists to be honored Sunday, Dec. 8, at the Doubletree Hotel in St.
MOOSE LAKE -- Survival mode. Along the sports spectrum, it's on the opposite end from Beast Mode. Survival mode is where the Moose Lake Area's boys hockey team found itself last season. The team endured one lopsided loss after another. They opened the campaign with just nine players. A school-hall recruiting effort bolstered the roster with former youth hockey players, some years removed from their last ice time, and even football players, who joined the fray out of devotion to school and classmates.
CLOQUET -- When she was growing up, Claudia Turner can vividly remember dribbling a basketball down in her family's basement. Her father, Keith, only allowed her to use her left hand. Last summer, faced with her decision on where to play women's collegiate basketball, Claudia chose Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, where Keith can once again give her a helping hand. Both father and daughter are intricate parts to the Thunder, as freshman Claudia is the team's starting point guard, while Keith -- also the school's fourth-year athletic director and football coach -- serves as the team
It's been nearly 14 months since the deaths of Carlton County Highway Department workers Mitch Lingren and Zachary Gamache and the arrest of Vanessa Brigan, who was charged with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide and accused of driving under the influence of methadone in the accident that took the men's lives. Since then, the topic of methadone, its efficacy, and the way the synthetic opioid is employed in the treatment of opioid dependency has remained an active one in local and regional media.

I have a friend who wondered out loud on Facebook whether it was weird for her to be excited about the purchase of a new vacuum cleaner. There can be only one answer to an outrageous question like this: H-E-double toothpicks, no! A vacuum is worthy of a fair amount of hoopla. It is a nearly-essential household appliance, albeit not a major one, but in a similar position of importance as a crockpot or coffee maker.
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
