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

Property Crimes Person Of The Week Wanted For Theft And More, Again

Maybe YOU can help this week.  This Property Crimes Person of the Week may be familiar, he was one of the Property Crimes Persons of the Week last month.  Several of the other Property Crimes Persons of the Week that I've blogged have been apprehended because you've recognized them.  It’s a good feeling to know that information you've shared with the Duluth Police Department has helped locate the individual and in many cases has lead to an arrest. Can you help this week?

UPDATE: Cathy Kates Shares Info From You About The Area’s Suspicious Activities In Wrenshall And Duluth

I want to start this blog out by telling you that while this is factual, it's based on what my friends in Wrenshall and Duluth have told me and NOT from any local police department press release.  In two separate instances, in two separate communities I've had friends tell me of shady visitors to their homes asking puzzling questions and that sparked speculation.  I blogged the info they shared with me and got a lot of different responses.  I thought I should share some of the info to put you at ease or so you know in advance in case you hear a knock on your door.

Scotty McCreery Performs George Jones’ The Grand Tour At The Grand Ole’ Opry [VIDEO]

It's heart warming to see someone as young as Scotty McCreery covering a country legends hit that went #1 in 1974.  It shows the diversity of Scotty's talents, the longevity of George Jones' songs and keeps the "old country" alive.
