Dajah | Animal Allies

Dajah is a seal point grey tabby Siamese mix who is 12 years old. He came to us from a previous home and is now looking for his new loving home! This shy guy needs patience and love as he takes a while to warm up. A calm environment with another mellow cat would be a great fit for Dajah!

On this episode of Ojibwe Stories: Gaganoonididaa we have conversation with Obizaan  [Lee  Staples], a spiritual advisor for the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, and Chato Gonzalez, Obizaan's apprentice and translator.  Obizaan talks about the passing of Mille Lacs elder and longtime Ojibwe Stories contributor Larry Amik Smallwood.  Obizaan conducted Amik's funeral in April, and he discusses teachings about our journey to the spirit world.  Obizaan also discusses growing up with Amik in the Aazhomog community.

Do you have five people you can talk to?  Really talk to?

How do you find them - as a young person or an adult?

And how can you become that person for someone else?

Last year the Tweed held an incredible exhibit of paintings by Jeffrey T. Larson and this week marks a year of students attending the new Great Lakes Academy of Fine Art in Observation Hill founded by Larson.  A classically trained painter, Larson and his son Brock renovated the Old St. Peter's Church at 810 W. 3rd Street in Duluth into a fine arts academy; and along with their current students, are putting together their first public show.

ERs in the Northland are seeing young people coming in who have made, to varying degrees, attempts to take their own lives in the wake of the popular Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.

The Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. The death of Project Semicolon founder Amy Bluel. The study that discovered that a group of white, middle-aged Americans are dying what they call "deaths of despair."

What do these three things have in common?

Let's call it an absence of hope.

In troubling times, it's easy to put your finger on everything that's going wrong. And we're given the idea that focusing on the problems is somehow the right thing, the mature thing to do, while focusing on the good makes you naive or foolish.

The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is onstage at The Underground ... and it all goes to show that 122 years after its debut in London, it's still making audiences laugh.

Larry Weber says the 2 1/2 inches of rain at his place this week means things are greening almost visibly.

Fiddlehead ferns that were just poking their heads from the soil last week are knee-high now, and if you have the time and patience, you'll be rewarded with good views of warblers.

In addition, Larry says he heard a visitor he hasn't heard at his place in over 20 years.

Six months ago, a group of Duluthians brought their concerns to local political candidates, asking them to take specific steps to address their issues.

Part of the Local Solutions to Poverty Candidate Forum included the commitment to a follow-up Accountability Session this spring.

In this final part of a three part report, we hear about  efforts to make transportation more accessible for people with disabilities, and the progress of Homes for All in the Minnesota Legislature.
