  • Don't plow snow into roadways

    Nov 10, 2023

    The Carlton County Transportation Department said the act of plowing snow onto or across a public roadway is a safety hazard and a misdemeanor.

Snow from private property should be contained within property boundaries as much as possible, thereby avoiding piling or pushing snow into the road right of way. Should an accident occur, the property owner and the person who placed the...

  • Kirsti Marohn, MPR News|Nov 10, 2023

    A new report from an environmental advocacy group says wastewater treatment plants and sewage sludge are key pathways for so-called “forever chemicals” to contaminate Minnesota waterways.

PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are human-made chemicals used in a variety of products, from nonstick cookware to fi...  Website

    Steve Korby|Nov 10, 2023

    An autograph can become valuable, but most people usually don’t collect them for the money or as an investment.

    Nov 10, 2023
