Parents, Take Some Time With Your Children To Talk About Safety and Visit The Jacob Wetterling Resource Center Here

I didn't think we would ever get an answer about what happened to Jacob Wetterling.  When we first heard that his remains were found this weekend, a lot of emotions came back from years ago.  It's even sadder now knowing the truth, but at least the family finally has closure.   It's a good time to sit down with your kids and go over different scenarios and teach them to be safe.

As Soon As The Weather Gets Nicer People Drive Like Idiots

Today was a legitimately nice day in the Northland.  Temperatures hit the 70s and it felt just nice.  The sun was out, I was driving back from an appointment in Carlton, when I nearly was taken off the road by a car that cut into my lane on I 35.  I shrugged it off, kept my cool and kept going.   Just minutes later another car passed me going close to 90 and "shot the gap" in between me and a semi.  What the heck was going on?!  It happens every year at this time.   Nicer weather and people drive like idiots.
