Yesterday in Virginia, MN miners, their families, retirees, community leaders, and other unions marched together in the Solidarity in Steel Rally and March. Roughly 2,000 people participated in their "Fair Contract Now" fight.
Groceries have become so expensive in recent years that I usually show by price, not by brand. One of the things I haven't been able to find a good replacement for is name brand American singles cheese slices.
Many of my friends are in the process of looking for a job or have a job and are looking to change careers. It's always hard to afford additional schooling and if you have a job now, it's hard to fit school into your already busy life. Thanks to AEOA, (Arrowhead Economic Opportunity Agency's) new program, you might be able to git r' done!
I have been visiting local farmer's markets and have noticed the abundance of zucchini, have you? Some of them are HUGE! I have a fantastic zucchini bread recipe from an old church cookbook that I overuse this time of year but I was looking for something different. Taste of Home came through with something the whole family likes.
I had the pleasure of working with Kaye Tenerelli for years and many of us can say that. She always has a smile on her face and the best interest of the Superior businesses in the BID district on her mind. While it's sad to know I won't be working with her anymore, the years of dedication I've witnessed warrants a very happy retirement!
For years City of Superior Residents have paid much higher taxes than surrounding areas. According to WDIO, it averages 36% higher than Duluth residents. The city has always said that a perk of our higher taxes was we didn't have to pay for garbage. Now not only have they included a recycling fee, they were trying to add a $9.75 per month garbage fee. That whole idea is garbage.
I went fishing out in the bay last Friday. It was AFRICA HOT. I figured we weren't going to catch anything, so I thought we would go for a little cruise. After going near the lift bridge and looking out, it was remarkably calm on the big lake. So what the heck? Let's take the boat out on the big lake. It was pretty cool to see how calm Lake Superior was. Check out this video.

Have you read about my dilemma? I bought ONE t-shirt at the Kenny Chesney/Jason Aldean concert, but ended up paying $70 because I was charged for two and didn't check my receipt before signing? Well, I have an update that involves both the credit card company and the Arnie Barn which is the company that sells t-shirts and souvenirs and the concert merch tables.
The mining industry on the Iron Range has certainly been in the news lately. Some good news, like laid off workers being asked back, some not so good news with closures that include an iconic tourist destination, Mineview in the Sky
Lately the only fishing I've done is with Ken Hayes, my co-host. But, we've both been so busy we haven't found time to even go for the afternoon. However, I found that he isn't my lucky charm. I got to go out a few times while on vacation the beginning of the month and I caught my first fish in a VERY long time. It does come with a big fish tale of humor though!
