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.

My Alma Mater The Wrenshall Wrens Keep The “Little Brown Jug” With A Win Over Carlton

The Little Brown Jug game has been played between friendly rivals Wrenshall and Carlton for 65 years.  With both school's basketball teams vying to score the most points and earn the right to house the "little brown jug" in their school until the next match.  However, this is a historic year because the two schools are considering consolidation, therefore this might be the last time the "little brown jug" would ever be played.  Both teams brought their A game, but my alma mater made me proud!
