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.

KUMD's Adam Reinhardt reports.

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?

Larry Weber's not the kind of guy to waste time railing against Mother Nature.

That being said ...he's not always a huge fan of warmer temps.

For one thing, our overnight lows in the mid-to-upper 60s are around the normal daytime highs.

For another, the south winds responsible have dramatically dropped the raptor numbers over Hawk Ridge.

But the sky-watching conditions, at least, have been fabulous.

A little kindness can go a long way.
