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
CLOQUET -- It's not unusual for Dave Otterson to greet you with a hug. "Mr. Otterson," as most of Carlton and St. Louis counties know him, is good at making a person feel comfortable.
Cloquet City Councilors are taking a long look at their long-term planning process and whether that process might eventually include merger talks with the city of Scanlon. City Administrator Brian Fritsinger discussed the results of a recent retreat with Cloquet City Councilors prior to their Tuesday night meeting and said that of the issues potentially facing the city, talks with Scanlon might add to an already crowded plate. "The issue is to save money for taxpayers," Fritsinger said.
