  • Letter to the Editor: I second the support for newspapers

    May 10, 2024

    I would like to echo the remarks made by Mark Cline’s recent letter calling for support of our local newspaper, the Pine Knot News. We are fortunate to have a local paper to help us keep informed of local happenings and events. The Pine Knot has an excellent, competent and friendly staff. This is evidenced by the many awards that they have received. The recent articles on the status and description of the new county jail, the status of the Cloquet Forestry Center, future building plans for the Fond du Lac band among other stories are very i...

  • Notes from the small pond: Motherhood

    Parnell Thill|May 10, 2024

    The young mother rubbed oil on her already brown legs and lay back on the towel in the sand, her skin a shiny offering to the sun. Nearby, her blond, husky son, covered in sand, sucked orange pop from a straw. “Don’t spill that,” the mother said, not opening her eyes, not moving her head, her brain slowly melting in the heat. “I’m not,” the boy said, truthfully. He looked at the pop and the sand around him, checking for signs of spillage. “I don’t want any ants,” the mother said, breathing a...

  • Stealth rains on CEC's win parade

    Kerry Rodd|May 10, 2024

    The first season in history of the Cloquet-Esko-Carlton boys lacrosse program has been nothing short of impressive. The Lumberjacks have displayed massive offensive firepower and a stingy defense, a formula that guided them to an impressive 7-0 record on the season. That changed on Tuesday night when CEC took its first loss of the season by a score of 13-5 to the Proctor/Hermantown Stealth. CEC drew first scoring blood in the game on an impressive individual effort by Logan Dahlman, who weaved...

  • Lumberjacks look to break through

    Kerry Rodd|May 10, 2024

    The Cloquet baseball team is in the midst of the busiest part of its spring schedule. Last Thursday, the Lumberjack fell 7-5 to Proctor, on Monday they lost 5-3 to a tough Superior team. Don't judge the team's ability by its win-loss record (4-8), because all but one loss was by three runs or fewer, head coach Tyler Olin pointed out. Against Superior, Cloquet fell behind 4-0 after the first inning and a half, but then erupted for three runs in the bottom of the second to pull to within 4-3....

  • Keyword for Cardinals: Comebacks

    Dwight Cadwell|May 10, 2024

    A controversial split with Two Harbors Monday saw the Cromwell-Wright boys baseball team end on a high note, defeating the Agates 21-1 in five innings after dropping the first contest 10-9. "The first game I thought the game was tied," head coach Dean Levinski said. "Our book and the umpire I thought had us tied, but their book gave them a one-run victory. "It was two bizarre games against Two Harbors." Two Harbors jumped out to an early 9-1 lead through five innings, but the Cardinals rallied b...

  • Another darts season passes

Meeting on Mondays at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Cloquet, the league reflects the old bowling league schedules going from fall to spring.

  • Trout return to endangered county creeks

    May 10, 2024

    The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is reporting that trout are once again finding a home in two small coldwater streams in Carlton County after water quality conservation work in the Nemadji River watershed. Watershed studies completed by the MPCA during the past two decades have shown that Skunk and Elim creeks, which begin in the west in Blackhoof Township, were degraded by excess sediment, the result of historical logging and other human activities that altered stormwater runoff and...
