New Report: US Airlines Make More Money From Fees Than From Tickets

With all the costs and delays that we encounter at the Airport, this new report is delivered to the American public and I am angry. U.S. airlines bring in more revenue from fees for bags and other products and services than do the world’s other carriers, a new report released today reveals.

Dredging Of Lake Superior Begins To Ensure Two Billion Dollars Of Cargo Can Be Shipped

Sometimes I hate the fact that I am so busy I don't take the time to learn and understand all there is to offer, even when it's something I can't see.  I look at Lake Superior several times a day.  I appreciate the beauty, most of the time I curse the cold, forceful wind, and on hot days, I am happy to have the Lake too cool off in while heating up on the beach while getting a tan.  But, there's a lot going on UNDER the water that is out of sight, out of mind.

Senate Vote Might Save Mail Processing Center In Duluth

This is most certainly good news for Duluth and the employees who work at the local processing center.  Sen. Al Franken sees the craziness in having mail sent from one local address to another having to be processed in St. Paul.  Let's hope our local processing center is never targeted again to be closed.

Senate Passes Synthetics Bill 64-0; Business Owners Selling Synthetic Drugs Will Face Jail Time

I don't think anyone doubts that Governor Mark Dayton will sign this bill.  Synthetic drugs have been targeted for awhile and I think this type of legislation will become standard.  They key to this bill is that new chemicals can be added to the bill over time, so as new synthetics get created, they can quickly become illegal to sell.  That means places like Duluth's Last Place On Earth may find it difficult to work around this bill and sell synthetics.

What are your thoughts on synthetic drugs and this bill?

Looks like it's getting started.  I noticed on Thursday that the excavators were parked by the gas stations, and this morning they began demolishing the old buildings to make room for  one of three new CVS pharmacy's coming to the Twin Ports.

Best Buy Says It Will Close 50 Big Box Stores, Cut 400 Jobs

While several elements of the economy, such as the housing market, are on the rebound, some companies are still adapting their business model.  I would think the Duluth store would be safe as that Best Buy store is really the only of its kind in the community.  That's not to say there's no competition for the goods and services it does sell.  As this story states, I think we will see less of this huge stores and more smaller specialty stores where you can get some training and other one on one things.

Where is your preferred place to buy computers and electronics?
 

Best Buy Co. Inc. said Thursday that it will close 50 big box stores this year and eliminate 400 jobs, mostly at
