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?

Crews Clear the Way for New CVS Pharmacy in Superior on 28th & Tower

We've seen the old gas stations closed down for years on the corner of 28th and Superior.  I had heard rumors about their being a new CVS pharmacy being built there for quite some time.

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

If You’re Considering E-Cigarettes, Read This!

If you've been trying to quit smoking and you think E- cigarettes, or electronic cigarettes might be the answer, you should read the following article.  I actually tried that route, before I just plain quit, with the help of the American Heart Association and Essentia Health's Smoking Cessation program.  From experience, I can honestly say, it wasn't the same.  I wasted my money and I couldn't use it in public places like I thought, because you still have to deal with the stares, the look of horror that you could be doing such a thing in a public place and some people are very vocal about it, V E R Y.  Now, according to studies, they found that it might not be as healthy as they first thought  for you, either.  It's ultimately your call, I will never tell a smoker not to smoke, that's their decision and I  am now an ex-smoker, so who am I to judge, BUT, I can at  least share facts, to help make that decision easier.
