  • Tribal farm grows souls as well

    Jana Peterson|Sep 17, 2021

    Things are growing at Fond du Lac's farm Gitigaaning, or place of the gardens, and it's not just vegetables. Health. Knowledge. Buildings. Resources. Confidence. Food security. Friendships. Community. Of course, there are plenty of vegetables growing there, nurtured by individual growers on their own small lots: corn, beans, melon, sunflowers, pumpkins, zucchini, sweetgrass, borage, peppers, tobacco, ground cherries, squash, kale, broccoli, cauliflower; the list goes on. It's all part of the...

  • Wright/Cromwell news

    Jennie K. Hanson|Sep 17, 2021

    The folks in Cromwell and the surrounding area celebrated a great weekend as Harvest Fest was a huge success. There were 194 steaks from the Farmers Co-op in Wright served at the Friday night fry. Sue Youngberg won the Cardinal Quilters donated quilt. The stand-still parade was great, with the Extreme Team winning first place with their Flight 93 float. Ken Kangas and Ed Raisanen were honored as the grand marshals. The pie social was delicious. Corn hole tournaments for youth and adults were...

  • Barnum notches rare Esko win

    Kerry Rodd|Sep 17, 2021

    When the Esko and Barnum volleyball teams met up last week, tradition would have predicted the Eskomos would be walking out of the gym with a win. Not this year. The Bombers went into Esko and walked out Sept. 9 with a 25-22, 25-21 and 25-18 win against the perennial Polar League champion. The win was the first by Barnum over Esko since 2010. "They came in and took it to us," said first-year Esko coach Pete Stasiuk. "Barnum played hard, they dug the ball out on defense and we couldn't stop... Full story

  • Cards crash after thrilling opener

    Kerry Rodd|Sep 17, 2021

    After opening the season with a thrilling come-from-behind, last-minute win, the Cromwell-Wright/Floodwood football team fell on tough times last Friday when it was dismantled 58-0 by Ogilvie. It was a tough night for a young team. "Overall numbers are pretty good, much better than the last couple years," said Cardinals coach Jeff Gronner. "We are a very young team and we are counting on many freshmen and sophomores to play this season." The Cards returned four seniors at the start of the... Full story

  • St. Louis County targets deer farms

    MPR News|Sep 17, 2021

    Dan Gunderson MPR News The St. Louis County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday passed a resolution calling for a moratorium on cervid farms. Those are farms that raise primarily deer and elk in captivity. There are 257 cervid farms in Minnesota and 172 that raise captive white-tailed deer, according to the Minnesota Board of Animal Health. Those farms have played a role in the spread of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in Minnesota, including a case in Beltrami County earlier this year that marked the northernmost spread of the disease in the... Full story

  • CEC knocks off East

    Kerry Rodd|Sep 17, 2021

    It's been so long since the Cloquet-Esko-Carlton girls tennis team beat Duluth East that nobody can remember when it happened. Last Thursday, the Lumberjacks got an impressive 4-3 win over the Greyhounds at Lakeview Courts in Duluth. "It's probably been 10 or 15 years since we beat East," said CEC coach Derek Johnson. "We won three out of four singles matches, which was great. Then we won at No. 3 doubles, which got us the win." CEC started the year off with an impressive tournament win when... Full story

  • Korby's Connections: Getting a trophy ... and Lange

    Steve Korby|Sep 17, 2021

    I think most folks in Carlton County probably have a Jessica Lange story. She’s our most famous hometown native and the only movie and television star who can still be seen waltzing through the Super One aisles picking up shampoo or plants at a local greenhouse when she’s escaping to her cabin here. In the late 1980s, me and two of my buddies — Tom “Maynard” Marciniak and Gary “Moose” Pastika — coached my spouse’s slow pitch softball team. The team played in the very competitive Carlt... Full story

    Jana Peterson|Sep 17, 2021

    A Cloquet man faces manslaughter charges following a fight in his apartment. Joel Ammesmaki, 58, was charged with first-degree manslaughter Thursday in Sixth District Carlton County Court, “causing the death of another while committing assault in the fifth degree with such force and violence” that death or great harm was “reasonably foreseeable.” Officers from the Cloquet and Fond du Lac police departments responded to a 9-1-1 call at approximately 2:09 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 14, reporting an unwa... Full story
