STAFF BLOG JIMMY JABBER There’s no one to blame but yourself for missing class
Video games are the reason for students struggles in school as much as food is to blame for peoples weight issues.
College often is a persons first taste of freedom (loads of free time) from parental ... Posted on 12/27/11 at 1:00 AM
As one of the 65 bishops of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, I live in a faith that has deep roots in the biblical truths of justice, community and compassion. I write to encourage support for immigration reform in our country.
During 37 years in Duluth I have noted some here seem to consider the area intellectually and morally superior to places in the South, such as my native Kentucky. I especially questioned such assumptions when I learned of the Duluth lynchings. I had never before heard of a lynch mob taking a suspect away from police custody.
No community in the state is immune from sex trafficking. Minnesota cities have been places of origin, transit and destination for sex-trafficking operations even before federal and state law defined the crime.
In the wake of the screening of Crispin Glover’s film, “It is Fine! Everything is Fine,” as part of the Duluth/Superior Film Festival last weekend — a film that romanticizes a man’s explicit sexual fantasies of the rape and torture of women — I have questions for progressive Duluthians who were there and for our community as a whole.
The culture of a city is created by the people who call it home. At the annual mayor’s bike ride on May 17, Duluth Mayor Don Ness stated, “It’s great to see the enthusiasm for biking in our community and a commitment to healthy living.

The Denfeld staff would like the greater Duluth community to know how proud we are of Duluth Denfeld High School, our students, families and community. There are many wonderful things happening at the school. Students have reached a high level of success in the classroom, as well as in their athletic and extracurricular pursuits. Help us celebrate all that’s right with Denfeld as we share a small portion of these accomplishments.
As I write this I am returning to Duluth for the summer. A timely move: Tucson’s temperature just topped 100 degrees for the first time this year. Tucson usually averages about 62 degrees this time of year. Yet it is a dry heat, so we can still sit in the shade to eat, read and enjoy the colorful desert and mountain terrain and wildlife.
I applaud the News Tribune’s coverage of the synthetic-drug epidemic ravaging our community, particularly the April 26 story headlined, “Synthetic drugs threaten shelter’s safe haven.” The article stressed how synthetic drugs are jeopardizing the housing needs, safety and well-being of many of my clients.
