@Lincoln Park Farmers Market

When the Lincoln Park Farmers Market started up six years ago, it wasn't just so folks could buy some flowers and a little fresh fruit for breakfast.

A survey had just been conducted that showed people in the Lincoln Park neighborhood weren't living as long as everyone else in the community.  In fact, no access to healthy food, due to transportation problems and the distance to the nearest grocery stores, was shaving about ten years off their life expectancies.

For the 17th year, our friends at Beaner's Central are hosting a week-long series of live music featuring local musicians. The performances will be recorded for Volume 17 of the Beaner's One Week Live compilation album. KUMD is so proud to be a supporter of Beaner's week of live music year after year. The 17th annual One Week Live features performances from Feeding Leroy, Woodblind, Lady Slipper and much more.

It took more than three hours, but the Duluth City Council voted last night to table the Duluth Police Department's request to purchase over $83,000 worth of shielded helmets, body armor and crowd-control batons, among other items.

Proponents call it "personal protection equipment." Opponents call it "riot gear."

At a packed council chamber last night, members of the community alternately urged councilors to approve the purchase and table the request until more conversations could be held.

Much of what we love about nature is the same thing we love about art: how we feel when we look at it.

The Duluth Art Institute and Hartley Nature center are presenting a series called Art, Naturally that runs through next summer.  The first installment is tonight at 7pm, Painting Under the Full Moon with Karen Savage Blue.

Parents want to keep their children safe from anything that could harm them - including information.

Parents of Black sons report painful conversations with them about how society may treat them, but Kelly Hallman, the director of IMAGEN (Indigenous Adolescent Girls' Empowerment Network) says Native girls are already tuned into the dangers they see around them.

The northwest winds we'll contend with today will be a nuisance everywhere but Hawk Ridge, where they'll drive migrating birds of prey right down into the waiting binoculars of the hawk counters.

Count Director and special guest star John Richardson joins us this morning to tell us more.

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 today's International Day of Peace Celebration.

Sarah Stonich doesn't let go of things easily.

Or perhaps they just don't let go of her.

Even though she lives in the Twin Cities, northern Minnesota -- and the characters she's created who live there -- keep reappearing in her work.

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.
