"At the end of the day, these connections serve as hope"

Japan. Russia. Canada. Kurdistan. Just a few of the countries whose relationship with the United States has become increasingly fraught in the last months, but also just a few of the countries with whom Duluth enjoys a sister-city relationship. The chance for people here to connect to the wider world, to meet people who are simultaneously different from and the same as they -- those relationships could be seen as the antidote to fear. Concerns about weather prompted a move to the DECC for...

Project Consent

There's a national conversation taking place in our country now as the #metoo movement gathers momentum -- a conversation about consent.

But consent - what it is and, more importantly, what it's not - is an idea not limited to sexual encounters.

Duluth Artist Carla Hamilton's a solo show called “Minnesota Nice” is up for one more week at Prøve Gallery, welcoming visitors to stop in during the Downtown Duluth Arts Walk on Friday, Sept. 28.

Hamilton's exhibit has brought a fresh voice inviting the audience to examine their cultural constructs and social discomfort that create and sustain disparity and inequality through collage, film and more.

People of a certain age remember when "don't litter," was at the forefront of everyone's consciousness.   

47 years after Keep America Beautiful's famous public service announcement admonished "people start pollution; people can stop it," it doesn't seem like we've gotten the message.

By some accounts, people fear public speaking more than death.

So while Duluth Mayor Emily Larson is glad folks who are comfortable getting up in front of a crowd at a City Council meeting are speaking up about their concerns, she wanted to continue another option.

In addition to connecting with different people in different neighborhoods, her "City Hall in the City" listening sessions are giving folks a chance to share concerns in a way that makes them more comfortable.

Now is a great time to divide and replant perennials.

Warm soil temps and cool air temps mean they tend to their business of setting roots, and as Tom Kasper reports, they're not as fragile as they seem.

Julianne Vasicheck

Julianne "Montana" Vasichek grew up playing hockey. She was a Team USA defenseman, an All-American with UMD and a three-time NCAA champ at UMD; twice as a player and once as the Hockey Equipment Manager/Strength and Conditioning Coach.

So it was bad enough when she got sick in 2008 and it turned out to be a rare, incurable, and untreatable liver disease, primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). When a blood clot in her ailing liver sent her into the hospital and from there to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, her friends came to say goodbye.

Artists in Grand Marais were, to use Annie Dugan's phrase, "skittering around" over the weekend, creating art outdoors at the Plein Air Festival.

Anyone can snap a photo with their smart phone and keep moving, but what happens when you stay with a view and commit it to canvas?

This week, what happens when you believe in someone ... even someone you don't know?
