  • Fastpitch softball was once a big deal in Carlton County

    Steve Korby|Jun 21, 2019

    It’s probably been more than 20 years since there was an active Carlton County fastpitch softball league. I thought about it the other day when I was driving down Minnesota Highway 210 toward Cromwell and passed the old Iverson Inn ballfield. The inn, a bar and restaurant that grilled great hamburgers and served ice-cold beer, burned down to the ground many years ago. The adjacent ball field still has a backstop today but does not resemble the field where I had the privilege of playing f... Full story

  • South Ridge can't find offense at state tournament

    Dwight Cadwell|Jun 21, 2019

    Entering the Class A State Baseball Tournament, the South Ridge Panthers were hoping experience would pay off at their second-straight appearance, but South Ridge fell twice last Thursday and Friday. The Panthers opened up play Thursday afternoon at the Mini Met Stadium in Jordan facing No. 2 New York Mills. The Panthers scored the game’s first run — and what turned out to be their only run of the game — in the top of the second inning when Riley Kinsley scored on an infield single off the b...

  • Rodd's ramblings: Coaching is about a lot more than winning

    Kerry Rodd|Jun 21, 2019

    The last few weeks have been more than a bit of a whirlwind. As an assistant coach with the Cloquet softball team, I had a chance to be part of something special with the team picking up a Section 7AAA championship — in the most incredible of ways — and then heading down to the Minnesota State softball tournament in Mankato where Cloquet finished third. This isn’t a column about coaches, but more so about all that coaches face and must do in order to achieve great things. Unfortunately, there ar...

  • Hockey's Isobel cup comes home to Cloquet

    Jana Peterson|Jun 21, 2019

    Getting to play on the Minnesota Whitecaps team was a dream come true for 2009 Cloquet High School grad Sadie Lundquist, but winning the championship — and the Isobel Cup that comes with it — was the icing on the cake. The Whitecaps beat the Buffalo Beauts 2-1 in overtime in the championship game March 17 in St. Paul in their first season in the league. On Friday, Lundquist brought the Isobel Cup to Cloquet, ferrying the large silver trophy around in a golf cart for much of the afternoon as she...

  • Make way for the turtles

    Pine Knot News|Jun 21, 2019

    Turtles are crossing roads to nest this time of year, and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is reminding motorists to watch for them and, whenever possible, allow them to cross the road safely. Each year at this time, many female turtles move from lakes, ponds, wetlands, rivers and streams to nesting areas. They are looking for suitable locations to deposit their eggs. Many nesting areas are a significant distance from turtles’ wintering areas. As they attempt to cross roads, m...

  • Outdoors: It's a road trip success story

    Bret Baker|Jun 21, 2019

    Jamie and Hannah are long gone. Barcelona or maybe Madrid by now? David has been shipped off to Gunflint for some one-on-one time with Gramma and Grampa. It is mid-morning and the Baker crew still at home have yet to shape the day. It is cold and windy and wet. The grass that should have been cut in the last couple of days will have to wait. I check the radar and the rest of the day doesn’t shake out much better. Hmmm. I notice further north, all looks good. Joseph, Joshua and I come to a quick...

  • Green guy: Trees, in the end, are a real bargain

    Chris Gass|Jun 21, 2019

    We’ve all heard the adage “Money doesn’t grow on trees” at some point, especially as children. Granted, we can point out that fruit, timber and other such goods are indeed abundant in our economy, suggesting that money really does grow on trees, so long as one can sell those products. And because those products have a market price, we can readily make decisions about purchasing them; e.g., you might buy apples when they are $1 per pound, but at $3 per pound, you might not. But what about values...

  • Scores of bike riders take to signature trail

    Timothy Soden-Groves|Jun 21, 2019

    A light mist began to fall at 11 a.m., just as riders began to roll their bicycles onto the Munger Trail from the Northern Pacific Junction shelter in Carlton. The occasion was the Carlton County Community Bike Ride on June 9. Organizers were concerned that the cool, wet weather might dampen enthusiasm for the second annual event. With multiple access points to the trail, it would be difficult to know right away how much impact the weather might be having on the turnout. At about the same time t... Full story

  • Movies in Wrenshall barn return for 16th year

    Pine Knot News|Jun 21, 2019

    If you’ve never attended a film festival in a barn, here’s your chance. The Free Range Film Festival — located in the big barn at the corner of County Road 1 and County Road 4 near Wrenshall — returns next Friday and Saturday, June 28-29. This year’s festival has a theme: Competition. “I realized as I was screening films for this year’s festival that we had a lot of movies about interesting people participating in very particular pursuits,” film festival programmer Annie Dugan said. “I don’t... Full story
