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.
