Holly

Meet Holly. She is an adult female pointer mix. Holly came to us off a euthanasia list as she was heart worm positive. Holly went through treatment last summer and is healthy as any dog out there. She is friendly, LOVES attention, playful but not hyper, gets along with other dogs and is as pretty as can be. Holly would fit in any family, she so badly wants her own home. She has been vet checked, spayed, and vaccinated.

Imagine having to to sit through classes with 95 different teachers before you find one that looks like you.

Imagine being a student of color and knowing that your chances of graduating high school were only 52 to 66 percent in Duluth -- but your guidance counselors each have 416 students to advise and help.

Imagine what you could do if Duluth had a universal scholarship program like one launched in Michigan ten years ago: one that would pay tuition to a state college for any student who graduates from the Duluth Public Schools.

In a year that saw the launch of Duluth's first all-female music festival, FeMNfest, we look back at a time when women weren't such a commonplace part of the music scene. Liz Minette talks with Ione Tomasetti of Iron Range band Renown and Duluth's Lorene Couture of bands Hostage and Legacy about their time in music, from their first-ever gigs to giving words of encouragement to a young Bob Dylan (then Bobby Zimmerman) after watching him get booed off the stage during a talent show to hearing their songs on the radio for the first time.

Mn Artists

If you are a Minnesota artist you have likely heard of mnartists.org, a long running local arts project of the Walker Arts Center. Mn Artists is an online community that spills over into the gallery. With the goal for artists to reach larger and more distant audiences, the online community not only offers web space to artists to share their work and profile, but works to connect artists, to inspire collaboration and to propel local art into the regional and national scene.

Duluth City Clerk

The League of Women Voters Duluth has all kinds of information available on their website for voters today.

The non-profit, non-partisan organization has everything from a Voter Guide to maps, instructions and links to more information.

To save you some time, we've added a few here:

Jeremy NeVilles-Sorell says, when it comes to the #metoo hashtag, for Native women it could be #metooX4.  Or X6.

He knows through his work at Mending the Sacred Hoop that Native women are more likely to suffer violence or sexual assault multiple times in their lives.

Back in 1960, MnDOT built a chunk of Highway 53 on land owned by a mining company.

The only catch was, if the company wanted to get at the ore underneath the road, the road would have to be moved.

Fast forward 57 years and the road did indeed need to be moved, a project "cursed with a short timeline but blessed with resources."

Houston says he's not headed to Disneyland to celebrate the completion of the project ... but he is going to deer camp.
