I BID Happy Retirement And Best Wishes To Kaye Tenerelli Of The Superior BID

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!

Need A Dentist Or Looking To Make A Switch? Loban Dental Impressed Me

I had the opportunity to broadcast from the new location of Loban Dental and I wouldn't normally blog about a dentist, but I know so many people that haven't been to the dentist in years because they're afraid to go or there's so many new faces (and mouths) in town with our colleges opening again, I thought I'd tell you how impressed I was!

UPDATE: Cathy Kates Shares Info From You About The Area’s Suspicious Activities In Wrenshall And Duluth

I want to start this blog out by telling you that while this is factual, it's based on what my friends in Wrenshall and Duluth have told me and NOT from any local police department press release.  In two separate instances, in two separate communities I've had friends tell me of shady visitors to their homes asking puzzling questions and that sparked speculation.  I blogged the info they shared with me and got a lot of different responses.  I thought I should share some of the info to put you at ease or so you know in advance in case you hear a knock on your door.

Need A Job? Halvor Lines Is Hiring OTR Drivers

Often times I dedicate one of the several Solid Gold Saturday Show songs to my OTR drivers.  God bless em'!  It's a job that is physically and emotionally demanding, but without them our store shelves would be bare and we wouldn't get our mail in a timely fashion, among other things.  It's an important job and if you're in need of a job, Halvor Lines is hiring.

UPDATE: Plans To Remodel Or Rebuild Duluth Public Library Is Up For Discussion Again

The Duluth Public Library is 35 years old, I was shocked!  Of course with a building of that age there are concerns about how energy efficient it is and there have been laws that force the building to comply with.  SO, spend millions on renovations OR spend millions on building new?  That has been the question on the table for the last few months and it looks like it will stay on the table, for now.
