Michelle Lee announced the beginning of her Eighth Congressional District outreach tour at Fond du Lac Tribal Community College in Cloquet on Sunday, Feb. 18.
Cloquet Public Schools is joining all public school districts across the state to celebrate School Board Recognition Week (Feb. 19-23) to honor local board members for their commitment to Cloquet and its children. It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and these men and women devote countless hours to making sure our schools are helping every child learn at a higher level. They make the tough decisions every month and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect.
Rep. Rick Nolan has sponsored a resolution that would amend the Constitution. This amendment would unwind the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United that essentially said money is speech. Because of Citizens United, the more money you have, the more speech you are entitled to. This is wrong!
My name is Marbles and I am quite the unique little girl. I arrived to FOA as a stray and I was kind of a hot mess. I had very worn-down teeth and even one that was broken, which I had removed. I also had fleas, which is pretty typical for a stray, and a scar on one of my ears that caused some hair loss. I am 5-8 years old. I would love it if you would let me join your family. I am spayed, microchipped, de-wormed, started on my shots and I tested negative for FELV and FIV. For more information, visit foaonline.org or call Friends of Animals at 218-879-1655.

Musicians demonstrated their skills throughout the night led by enthusiastic longtime teacher and saxophone player, Rich Mowers. "One of my goals is to teach kids to enjoy making genuine music with their instruments and to have fun," Mowers said.
First is the issue of Ingensa. Who else was asked for a proposal? We have several good architects and engineers in our local area who are more than capable to provide any service we would need. I really question the decision to award a contract to Ingensa with a very excessive fee based on a single estimate that they themselves produced. I don't believe this comes close to passing the "smell test." It looks like Duluth and Johnson Controls all over again.
