This is Bear. He is an adult male Shepherd mix. When Bear came to us he had zero manners and didn't even know how to play with toys. Chris has worked very hard with Bear. He loves to fetch, is learning his commands, and walking so much better on a leash. Now he needs a family to throw that ball and go for walks.

The group Howling for Wolves is renewing their call to ban snares in Minnesota, an issue that resurfaced this month after a wolf was seen near Duluth with one wrapped around its muzzle. 

Although it's illegal to snare wolves, is is legal to snare coyotes, but opponents say dogs, songbirds and even moose and deer are killed or maimed by them.

Lakeside Gallery is celebrating fresh new work by local painter Naomi Christenson with a reception this Saturday, March 3, from 1-3 pm.  Christenson's work is often inspired by patterns in the natural world and although she has produced large scale work, a fresh look at lichen and fungi inspired her to paint these vibrant, miniature patterns on a smaller scale.

Be inspired by this local painter showing at Lakeside Gallery through the month of March. Lakeside Gallery is located in East Duluth at 4431 E Superior Street.

Sixth grade in Minnesota traditionally means a lot of learning about lakes and iron ore and Scandinavian immigrants, and usually there's a field trip to the State Capitol thrown in.

But the part of the state's history that deals with its first nations is either glossed over or skipped altogether, and in addition to leaving non-native students clueless about a large part of Minnesota's past - and a large part of our population - it makes Native students feel as though their experience has been erased.
