HF 888 is headed to conference committee in the House of Representatives. A provision in the bill would prohibit the DNR from adopting rules that restrict the use of lead ammunition.

If winter storm warnings on May Day weren't bad enough ... the weather was still lousy for World Naked Gardening Day.

And yes, that's a thing.  You can look it up.

UMD students, community members and Duluth business professionals got to enjoy all the high-stakes excitement and cash (sorta) of Shark Tank without the same cutthroat competition and a cross-country flight.

For the second year in a row, the UMD Shark Tank competition is giving business ideas a forum - ideas from students or the community - and awarding cash prizes.

Homegrown isn't just about the music any more.  Over the years it's grown to encompass some cool art, too, not the least of which is the Homegrown Photo Show, and the crowd-sourced Photo Stupor Show.  The Duluth Art Institute combines disposable cameras with music-crazed, party-all-night Homegrown fans and then sits back to watch the magic happen.

The process to rename Lake Place Park Gichi 'ode Akiing (gih chee o DAY  ah king) or "Grand Heart Place" and  in so doing, recognize the Native community's long presence in what's now called Duluth continues.

Babette Sandman is the chair of the Duluth Indigenous Commission and she has big dreams for the project, including a naming ceremony that would bring all nations together, and opportunities for teachings and new beginnings.

Nala | Contented Critters

Nala is a 7 yr old female Lab/Heeler mix. When she came she was so shy around people. Well she has been with us since January and she has really come out of her shell. She is a laid back, affectionate, treat loving pooch.

There's a long tradition of neighbors helping neighbors in the wild areas of northern Minnesota ... so when a neighbor fell through the ice into Hungry Jack Lake, other neighbors moblized to help.

Many people come and go at karaoke at Sir Benedicts Tavern. But there is one face you'll see there every week. Cole White brings us the story.
