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

Commemorate 9/11 This Thursday With The Northland Veterans Service Committee In Duluth

Ok, I admit that I did a horrible job taking this pic.  I cut the Statue of Liberty's head off, but it's because I was trying to make sure I got the dog in the picture.  My apologies.  Little did I know that when I was taking the pic of my daughter Kylee as we were out for a walk near the harbor two weeks ago, that I'd be using it to explain where they will commemorate 9/11 this year.  Here are the details:
