Carlton County, Dontcha Know: Thanksgiving edition
Read the latest news in the Carlton County, Dontcha Know newsletter published every Thursday.
CLOQUET — Happy Thanksgiving!
I hope you're able to enjoy the holiday with friends and family.
We announced some big news this week: Starting Dec. 9, our print edition is moving to Fridays. That means we'll bump this newsletter back a day, as well. You will still be able to see the most up-to-date news on our website, pinejournal.com. New stories are added to the website every day.
I'm also going to mention that we've got a big sale on now — one year of print and digital access for 50% off is just one of the options to choose from. The deal ends Tuesday, Nov. 29.
Lastly, I want to thank you for reading this newsletter and supporting our work. We couldn't do it without you!
Now, onto this week's headlines:
'You've earned this'
Churchill Elementary students and staff celebrated its National Blue Ribbon Award with a ceremony on Tuesday, Nov. 22.
