Next week will be Schroeder's last one as chief of the Cloquet Area Fire District - an entity he helped shepherd since he was... Full story

    Jana Peterson|Jun 12, 2020

    Pine Knot News|Apr 24, 2020

    Jana Peterson|Apr 10, 2020

  • Band member had a shot in Major League Baseball ... in 1910

    Steve Korby|Nov 22, 2019

    More than 100 years ago, a member of the Fond du Lac band pitched six innings for the Chicago White Sox … the same year he was deemed “unqualified” to play for the Cloquet baseball team. His name was William Cadreau. The right-handed pitcher is listed in the 1889 Census Roll of the Fond du Lac Band of Chippewa, a 1-year old boy born to Antoine Cadreau and Louisa Naganab on Sept. 2, 1888, in Cloquet. William’s lineage appears to show he is the grandson of Chief Naganab of Fond du Lac, who sig... Full story

    Jana Peterson|Nov 8, 2019

    Cloquet High School grads Riley Into and Landon Langenbrunner are aiming to make it big in the music world, but they aren't taking what many consider the traditional route.
