CLOQUET — It's the first week our print edition is on newsstands on Fridays, which is why I bumped this newsletter back a day, as well. Don't worry — you'll still be able to find all the same kinds of news you did before, it will just be a day later.

If you find yourself wondering what's going on before the newsletter comes out, remember to visit pinejournal.com for our latest headlines. We update the website every day.

We've got a lot of news for your consideration this week, but before we jump in, I wanted to let you know that the Thanksgiving deals I mentioned a few weeks ago is still on! Be sure to check out the deals before it's too late, and thank you for supporting local journalism!

Here are this week's headlines:
