Hi! Thanks for listening to Cathy and I every morning since 2007. 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!

I think I was in 5th grade when I first read Gary Pauslen's 'The Hatchet.'  It was the first book I ever read where I couldn't put it down.  I was searching online for a place I could buy a copy of it for my son, when I found these pretty fantastic fan videos.

Stihl Chainsaw MS271 Farm Boss Review

I purchased a brand new Stihl Chainsaw "Farm Boss" last week and finally got a chance to put it to the test this weekend in the woods.  The farm boss has changed in recent years.  It used to be the MS290 model, but Stihl now sells the farm boss as a redesigned 271 model.

Did You Know You Have Access To MN Bridge Inspection Reports?

I saw an article today in the Duluth News Tribune about the possibility of replacing the Blatnik Bridge within the next 10-15 years.   It's near the end of it's life.  As you probably have noticed, every year there are bridge inspections.  After the I-35 bridge collapsed nearly a decade ago, bridge strength and safety has been a big deal for MNDOT.  I learned today, that you can actually look up the bridge inspection reports!
