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

Homemade Mosquito Trap Could Help Keep Your Family Comfortable this Summer

I've never liked the smell of mosquito repellent like Off or Skin-So-Soft.  I never thought the Citronella candles worked very good and short of fumigating with a canister of insecticide fog like they use to do at the drive-in movie theaters, what's left to try?  DIY Mosquito Trap!

DTA’s Port Town Trolley Is Up And Running For The Summer In Downtown Duluth

It's a sure sign of summer when you see/hear three things in Canal Park.  The 4-person canopy bicycles chugging along the lakewalk, the clippity clop of the horse drawn carriages and the Duluth Transit Authority's Port Town Trolley back in service.  The nostalgic look of the trolley just adds to our city's enchantment!

FREE Life Jackets Offered For Kids And Teens By Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital And Kohl’s Cares

Minnesota law requires all children under the age of 10 to wear a life jacket on any boat or watercraft that is not docked.  Of course, for safety, life jackets are also recommended for children that are playing on shorelines and docks or near water.  With the number of lakes in our area, it only makes sense to make sure your child has his/her own life jacket and Essentia Health-St. Mary's Children's Hospital and Kohl's Cares is making that a bit easier by offering FREE life jackets.

Get Your Groove On At The 10th Annual Cathedral School Panther Pant 5K Walk/Run TONIGHT!

My husband and I have been training for Grandma's Half Marathon which is a 13.1 mile race.  One might say "you're running a distance race, what is a 5K going to do for you"?  LOTS!  It helps with speed.  Every race is a race against the clock, so while building stamina is important in a half marathon, so is speed.  We call it a tempo run and a 5K is the perfect way to get your tempo run in for the day while you're contributing to a great cause in the community.
