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

In addition to spinning the best in local and regional tunes on The Local, This week DJ Marv in the Mix shares his conversation with Deploi, a Los Angeles-based hip-hop artist who has collaborated with St. Paul band Down Lo.

So they founded Black Bears & Blueberries Publishing.

Hopping on a bus because your car’s in the shop or you want to be environmentally responsible.

Cutting a rent or mortgage check at the first of the month so your family has a clean, safe home.

Picking up a group of friends or piling in your car with the family to head to the park for a day of fun.

For 75% of Duluthians, that’s everyday life.

But for the remaining 25%, the one in four families in this town who live in poverty, it’s not.
