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 second year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. 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 16 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

State-of-the-Art Parking Technology Coming Soon to Superior Street in Downtown Duluth

You may have already experienced automated technology in our city.  I have used them several times in the Canal Park district. (and yes, you can still get a parking ticket if you don't pay....someone told me that, lol).  I have to admit, the street looks cleaner without the parking meters.  Now, they're going to try it in downtown Duluth.  What do you think of the new technology?
