  • Disco pike

    Bret Baker, Pine Knot News Outdoors|Jan 18, 2019

    Once in a while I'm forced to come clean. Recently, with one eyebrow raised in curiosity, the love of my life casually asked, "Why is there a disco ball motor in the Amazon cart?" It's moments like this I realize, I'm busted. However, the truth will set me free. I have a plan, and although she will listen intently, I know, deep down, she will never understand the ideas that float through this brain of mine. The plan is a solution to a problem it took me years to realize I was having. I will...

As we strive to keep sidewalks and driveways safe from slips and falls, we also need to think of our drinking water and fish populations. With the wintry mix the Northland serves up, using salt or other chemical de-icers is the norm. But when the snow melts, de-icing salt containing chloride runs into storm drains and into rivers, groundwater and, of course, Lake Superior. "Every bit of salt we...

  • Wojtysiak hits 1000th point

    Dwight Cadwell, Pine Knot Sports|Jan 18, 2019

    Allie Wojtysiak seems to have been a part of the girls basketball team for ages. So it was not surprising when the Lumberjack senior scored 21 points last Thursday night in Hermantown to crack the 1,000-point mark for Cloquet. "It's been a long journey," Wojtysiak said. "I didn't think I would get there but I am just so happy to have had that accomplishment." Wojtysiak was quick to point out that her teammates were as excited as she was to reach the elusive mark, with signs and banners from...
