The Carlton and Wrenshall school districts have been trying to mitigate wounds lately that have been administered from a number of different blows: open enrollment, diminishing state aid, increasing state mandates, aging facilities and dwindling numbers, to name just a few.
By the time the opening puck was dropped at Friday night's Minnesota Wilderness game, Northwoods Credit Union Arena had already been rockin' and rollin' for well over an hour. That's because the Wilderness games have become as much of an experience as a sporting event.
Two individuals and an entire department have received Carlton County’s highest awards for their contributions to Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
Consolidation talks between Wrenshall and Carlton dissolved Monday night, as the desire to retain a school in each community proved to be the dealbreaker.

When I was a little girl, winter weather gear meant an all-engulfing snowsuit, mittens attached by a string through the arms of my snowsuit, and a giant scarf wrapped around my face. To this day, I will never forget the smell of cold air through wet wool!
In many ways, last Tuesday’s referendum vote on a new middle school for Cloquet was the culmination of years, months and weeks of debate. In other ways, it was just the beginning.

If someone were to look through a magic looking glass at the city of Carlton 20 years from now, they would likely see a network of scenic outdoor trails meandering through virtually all areas of the city…. a park-like corridor connecting the central area of the city with the Thomson neighborhood to the east and on into Jay Cooke Park…. Thompson Lake Reservoir ringed by a rural trail system to allow hikers and bikers to enjoy its stunning beauty….and the streets of the scenic small town bustling with tourists, outdoor enthusiasts and a population of residents who embrace an active, healthy lifestyle.
