Cathy Kates

Hello, from a Northland girl born in Cloquet, raised in Wrenshall, and currently living in Duluth! I consider myself lucky to have been able to share my mornings and life with you since 1996. It's like audio Facebook. You're the reason getting up at 3am is totally worth it! I love hot buttered movie theater popcorn, the smell of a lake (especially if I’m fishing), and warm fuzzy blankets. I’m a lover, not a fighter, and yes it’s true, I get my hair cut on a weekly basis. Kudos to my family, Homie, Kylee, and my Schnauzer, Bauer for always being by my side. I appreciate that you wake up with the B105 Breakfast Club, read and share my blogs and most of all, your friendship through the years! Peace, love and hugs!

Find Treasures At The 37th Annual Park Point Rummages Sales

We have always chosen Park Point to train for Grandma's Marathon.  Years ago we got up early one morning to do our usual run and were met with lots of people and lots of bargains.  I was hooked!  It's awesome to be able to just walk from house to house for four miles searching for your treasures.

I Need Your Opinion And Suggestions, Is A Rock Garden Worth The Time?

We have owned our house for over 12 years and for all those years this area has looked just like this.  We believe at one point there use to be a rock garden there, see the big rock?  Now it just gets mowed around and looks horrible, is the attempt at making it a rock garden worth it?  Do people even have rock gardens anymore?

Lake Superior College Offers Career Exploration Summer Camps

I wish these types of career exploration summer camps were offered when I was young.  Not that I don't enjoy what I'm doing now, but it certainly would have opened my eyes to other careers available.  Plus, it would have made my summers way more interesting and I may have made life long friendships!

The Great Douglas County Tractor Ride Raises Scholarship Money

My husband and I were on our way to Wentworth Gardens to get veggie plants for the garden and we saw a line of about 11 tractors making their way across Highway 2 to the Riverside Bar, formerly Charlie's Rapid Riverside .  It was a sight to see and we wondered what the heck was going on, so we stopped on our way back.

Does Duluth Have A Geese Overpopulation Situation?

Recently while we were on air I was mentioning the abundance of rabbits we had at our house (insert multiplying like rabbits here). Other than the fancy driving I have to do to avoid hitting them since they never seem to know which direction they want to go, I’m kinda glad they are around because that means we don’t have fox, owls or fishers in the neighborhood. That’s when a Facebook friend took to a rant about the geese and I had to agree with him.
