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

Parents May Soon Be Required To Talk To A Doctor Before Deciding Not To Vaccinate Their Child?

When I think back to the vaccinations I got as a child I don't remember my parents having a choice.  But, it was a different time.  They actually gave us a cube of sugar, A CUBE OF SUGAR, with a pink dot of medicine on it.  I think it was to prevent polio back then.  Parents today would never go for that, but some are eliminating vaccinations all together and I don't see why.

My Alma Mater The Wrenshall Wrens Keep The “Little Brown Jug” With A Win Over Carlton

The Little Brown Jug game has been played between friendly rivals Wrenshall and Carlton for 65 years.  With both school's basketball teams vying to score the most points and earn the right to house the "little brown jug" in their school until the next match.  However, this is a historic year because the two schools are considering consolidation, therefore this might be the last time the "little brown jug" would ever be played.  Both teams brought their A game, but my alma mater made me proud!
