Our View: Summer, summer

Oh, glorious summer in Minnesota, we hail thee. Sunny days with blue skies and so much green. Summer rains. Pinehurst Park will soon be brightly lit at night with summer softball leagues, and the swimming pond is full and opens its doors next week.

Whitewater rafting has plenty of water to ride in the St. Louis River, which is high and impressive, but not threatening (yet).

The drought is no more in Carlton County and most of the state, a happy change.

The farmers market is open again, mini golf opens soon and folks are firing up their grills and eating outside.

Plans are underway for another fabulous Fourth of July in Cloquet and Moose Lake.

So much to look forward to.

While we encourage all to embrace the summer months, please be careful.

Don’t drive anything while under the influence of alcohol, CBD, pot or other drugs. The consequences can be deadly.

Wear sunscreen. Wear a helmet. Check for ticks.
