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 is Increasing Parking Enforcement to Deal with Recent Snowfall

 

I know, it's hard enough to remember which side of the street you should be parked on.  Most of us rely on trusting our neighbors (most we've never met) to be on top of it and we just follow their lead.  Due to the recent snow accumulation posing significant challenges the Duluth Police Department will be enforcing the parking ordinance and issuing tickets for those that don't comply.

Cloquet Police Department Will Provide Gun Locks and Free Safety Kits to Cloquet Residents While Supplies Last

 

It's one of those things that parents say "I never thought he/she could get to, or find it" when the unthinkable happens.  That's why the Cloquet Police Department is thinking ahead and will provide 300 gun locks and free firearm safety kits through a partnership with Project Child Safe, the nationwide firearms safety education program. The safety kits, which include a gun lock, will be distributed at the Cloquet Police Department while supplies last.  Consider picking one up to insure your families safety.

Get a New Hobby for Your Kids, Enlist Them in the Twin Ports Junior Derby

5, 4, 3, 2, 1!  I had the honors of blowing the first whistle at the Twin Ports Junior Roller Derby vs the North East Roller Derby Youth.  I knew very little about the sport as I walked through the doors of the World of Wheels on Sunday night.  In about half an hour I found myself cheering them on and counting the laps of the jammer!

See Olympic Luger Kate Hansen’s Pre-Race Warm-Up Dance [Jammin' Video]

I have always admired lugers, that has got to be exhilarating, racing down an icy tube with no restraints or protection except a helmet.  Their body muscles have GOT to be amazing!  They have to fight the centrifugal force with every fiber of their being at speeds of over 70mph.  How do they prepare for such a dangerous ride?  Kate Hansen has a very unique way and with good reason.

KIND Bar Healthy Grains Product Review

I first fell in love with the Kind Nut & Spices Bar, there's lots of different flavors, but my favorite is the Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt.  There's only 5 grams of sugar, 7 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein and it tastes great!  But, I could only buy them individually.  I wanted to buy a box full.  Then, I saw these, KIND Healthy Grains and they are scrumptious!  I give this two thumbs up and would give it a third if I could!
