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!

Video Shows 30 Foot Waves Crashing Into Cruise Ship During Brutal Storm [VIDEO]

I saw this today and just had to share it.  These guys are perfomers on a cruise ship and have seen a lot of weather.  But, they had never seen anything quite like this.   Last year a cruise ship got caught in a bad storm.  They filmed the rough sea from deck 3, and waves were still engulfing their cabin.  It's crazy!

Here is The Key To Quitting Smoking, Whether You Quit Cold Turkey Or Have Help

Today is National Kick Butts Day, where they urge you to using tobacco for one day.  The goal is that if you can make it one day without cigarettes, you know you can do it.  I smoked my last cigarette 16 months ago, and it wasn't any tricks or patches, or gum that got me to quit.  I've tried that before.  This time I had the key.

Duluth Parking Pay Station Eat Your Quarters? Better Download The App!

The City of Duluth has been introducing the new parking payment service, replacing parking meters in Downtown Duluth.  This started a couple of years ago, and for the most part it goes pretty smooth.  However, I parked on the 300 block of Superior Street the other day and ran into problems, and if I had the app downloaded it would have gone much smoother.

Tourists Amazed At ‘Ice Coated Lake Superior’ Near Duluth

These folks were on a photography trip up the North Shore when they found overlooks coated with ice.  It's actually a pretty cool video (pardon the pun).  It's not something that rare for us locals, but it's pretty cool to see tourists enjoying what our beautiful lake has to offer.
