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

Cathy Kates’ Dog Bauer Reminds You To Vote For Duluth In Flannel City Face-Off [VIDEO]

For a Northland girl, flannel is truely a wardrobe staple.  It's not only fashionable, but will keep you cozy in the chilly Twin Ports autumn weather.  What's not to like?  Those comfy flannel shirts come in an array of colors and go great with jeans and a pair of knee-high boots.  I'm not jumping on the flannel bandwagon either, my dog even had his own flannel jacket long before the quest to be the most flannel city!

Why Do The Leaves Of Our Trees Change Color In The Fall?

I was just talking to a friend about the fact that it seems like we haven't had the brilliant fall colored leaves that we're use to.  Some areas have them, but some places that I've enjoyed in previous years still haven't made the change.  I thought it was weird and wondered why.  I also realized (and I may have learned this in school YEARS ago), but I  don't remember why the leaves actually change colors, so I did a little research.
