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 12:00 AM
Leaders of Mining Truth, a group opposed to proposed copper-nickel mining, responded last month to a News Tribune report on PolyMet CEO Jon Cherry’s comments in Duluth regarding misinformation being used against the NorthMet Project.
I write this at the end of Black History Month because I have seen little commentary going very far back into black history. I have seen vile racist stuff from a race hustler but little that might contribute to actually understanding the background of our racial problems.
From Venezuela to the Ukraine, the world is embroiled in protests. People looking to better their living conditions, gain freedoms in the press and at the ballot box and provide a future for their children are standing up at great personal risk to speak for truth.
I am sitting on a beach in Puerto Vallarta, and it is 6:30 a.m. (Yes, I realize the lack of sympathy engendered when it’s double digits below zero back in Duluth, but the setting is only background to what follows). I come to the beach early as it’s first come, first served for the four beach huts that are thatch-covered and provide curtains to shade out later sunlight while allowing ocean breezes to flow through. Puerto Vallarta is a delightful, vibrant city with many nooks and crannies to explore.
Competition is fierce in the science, technology, engineering and math programs, or STEM programs, on the University of Minnesota Duluth campus. In 2012, 150 qualified STEM applicants were denied admission because of a lack of laboratory and learning spaces. These students are our future chemists, biochemists and biologists — if they can access the training they need.
Last year Independent School District 709 emphasized its “Think Kids” program and sought public input. Meanwhile, taxpayers approved two excess operational levies to support what the School Board decides is in need of support.
When the opportunity came for us at CHUM to be involved with outreach and enrollment for MNsure, we jumped at it, not only for the benefit of people who use our services but for the thousands of people who worship at CHUM congregations and communities of faith. As Minnesota developed its state health insurance exchange, CHUM was in the lead to make sure local navigators were part of the plan. It was only logical we continue our advocacy with action. Therefore, CHUM is one of several organizations united as “InsureDuluth,” with certified navigators to help people enroll in MNsure.

Much has been said, accurately and inaccurately, about the University of Minnesota Duluth’s current budget challenge (“UMD looks to cut $12 million,” Feb. 19). I want to set the record straight and emphasize that while we cannot change decisions made in the past, we are highly capable of addressing the current challenges and focusing on an even brighter future for our students, faculty, staff and regional economy.
Five long years have passed since the start of the most significant recession in our state’s history. Thankfully signs of recovery are showing. More Minnesotans are back to work, more people are buying cars and home appliances, and the housing industry is starting to build new homes again.
As a real estate agent working with buyers and sellers in St. Louis County, I have serious concerns regarding proposed changes to Ordinance 61. The ordinance covers subsurface sewage treatment systems in the county, more commonly known as private septic systems.
