Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her final year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. (he keeps me on my toes!) I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 18 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

UPDATE: Plans To Remodel Or Rebuild Duluth Public Library Is Up For Discussion Again

The Duluth Public Library is 35 years old, I was shocked!  Of course with a building of that age there are concerns about how energy efficient it is and there have been laws that force the building to comply with.  SO, spend millions on renovations OR spend millions on building new?  That has been the question on the table for the last few months and it looks like it will stay on the table, for now.
