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

Make Visiting A Dentist A Priority This Year

I am a dentist "regular", every six months like clockwork.  My amazing hygienist, Elizabeth makes my next six month appointment while I'm still there, so there isn't any chance of me becoming TOO busy to make my next appointment.  I know a lot of people that say they haven't been to the dentist in years and SHOULD make an appointment.  This blog is for you.

DTA’s Grocery Express Pilot Program Receives An Extension

I am fortunate, I am able to drive a car to the grocery store for my groceries.  It wasn't always that easy, I use to live in apartment and while I could drive to the grocery store and home, I had to carry my grocery bags up three flights of stairs, locking and unlocking both my car and apartment door each time.  That STILL was easier than people who have to take a bus to the grocery store and wrestle with their grocery bags going home.  The DTA has a pilot program that just received an extension to determine if the program will cease or become a permanent options for some in the city.

City Of Duluth Announces Online Renewal For 2016 Pet Licenses

The holidays are behind us and we are thinking about our end-of-the-year tasks that need to be done, like getting stuff together for taxes.  One thing that gets overlook is licensing our pets. I lived in the country most of my life, so moving to Duluth was a culture shock where pets are concerned.  My dog is now on a leash in the yard for safety concerns, his and that of people passing by.  If you haven't already filled out your 2016 Pet License yet, it's time and if you're renewing you can do it online this year.

For months my husband and I have gotten out of bed and was sore, didn't feel rested and was becoming increasingly frustrated.  We thought it was just "getting old" and I thought if this was the way it was going to be aging gracefully was going to be a challenge.  Until we bought new pillows!
