Hi! Thanks for listening to Cathy and I every morning for the last 10 years. I grew up on ‘The Range’ and I’ve made the Twin Ports my home for over the last decade. It’s a great place for my wife and I to raise our kids. I love to hunt, fish, and hang out in our great outdoors. I also love my job! It’s great to be able to connect with everybody in the Northland every morning and have a few laughs together. I’ve lived in many different parts of the Midwest, but nothing is as great as right here!

Watch an Aerial View Of The Progress On Highway 53 Relocation Project in Virginia [VIDEO]

I follow Above & Beyond The Range on Facebook because of the amazing drone videos they capture across the Northland.  I drive by the highway 53 relocation project every couple of weeks, but it's hard to see the project from the current road.  Well, it just so happens that the same weekend I drove by the project, they were getting a tour of the area and published this awesome video.

As Soon As The Weather Gets Nicer People Drive Like Idiots

Today was a legitimately nice day in the Northland.  Temperatures hit the 70s and it felt just nice.  The sun was out, I was driving back from an appointment in Carlton, when I nearly was taken off the road by a car that cut into my lane on I 35.  I shrugged it off, kept my cool and kept going.   Just minutes later another car passed me going close to 90 and "shot the gap" in between me and a semi.  What the heck was going on?!  It happens every year at this time.   Nicer weather and people drive like idiots.

Why Keith Urban Will Be The Best Concert At Amsoil Arena Yet

The nice perk of my job is that I've seen just about every concert to come to Duluth in the last 10 years.  I've also had the chance to travel to the local country festivals and experience those as well.   In all that time, not a single show has compared to the time I saw Keith Urban at Country Fest.
