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

Duluth Police Department Rewards Teens Using Seatbelts With The “I Got Caught” Campaign [Video]

I started driving in the early 80's when we were told to wear seat belts, but it wasn't law, so we rarely did.  Thankfully, throughout the years, I have been programmed to put my seat belt on immediately after entering the car, whether I'm driving or a passenger.  The Duluth Police Department wants to make sure our teens are educated early in their driving years that seat belts are the law and could potentially save their lives and that of their passengers.

Water Main Break Repair Underway on Cody Street

I've noticed several water main breaks around my neighborhood in West Duluth, but so far (knock on wood), our household hasn't been affected.  Even a "scheduled" water interruption is a disruption in ones day. Today, in all the snow, there is a water main break that the City of Duluth wants those it affects to be aware of.  Does it affect you?

Cold Weather Calls for Comfort Food: Turkey Drumsticks with Apple Stuffing

Ok, the middle drumstick does NOT look appetizing, but they taste yummy!  With the recent snow storm and cold temps I started digging through my cookbooks to come up with a nice comfort dinner for my husband when he came in from moving snow.  I've made this before and it's just as good as Thanksgiving dinner, just on a smaller scale and much easier!  Give it a whirl!

Can You Guess Where In the Northland Cathy Kates Is?

While my husband were out and about this weekend I was admiring the day and realized that I had been to this area before and never took in the beauty around me.  Living in the Northland we take for granted what some people travel miles and miles to see.  But, maybe you're just uber busy and can't get out as much as you'd like.  So, I thought I'd bring it to you and see if you can guess where I am!
