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

Throw Back Laughter With Carol Burnett’s “No Frills Airline” [Classic Video]

Saturday was the only night that my parents would let me stay up late.  That's because that was the night of the Carol Burnett Show.  (after having to sit through the painful Lawrence Welk Show).  With all the talk of airlines in the news I was doing research and ran across something that brought me back and still makes me laugh to this day.  Classic Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman and Tim Conway.  Do you remember this?

Hundreds Of Volunteers Needed To Ring Bell In Local Salvation Army Red Kettle Program

I started ringing bell (or shaking maracas) years ago.  When my daughter Kylee was old enough she rang with me.  It's a great opportunity for family time while teaching your kids the spirit of donating and sharing your time and energy.  As she grew older we morphed to wrapping gifts at the Salvation Army Gift Wrap booth at the mall. I know we aren't even to Halloween yet, but before you get to busy get volunteering on your holiday calendar.  Here's everything you need to know.

About a month ago my daughter and I talked about getting our annual flu shots, something we do together every year.  Then, we both got colds so the idea was put on hold.  Now that we're both healthy again I set out to see where we could go.  I found that Essentia Clinics is offering the flu shots at multiple clinics across the Northland.
