Robin Washington column: One of Duluth’s hidden treasures is Seven Bridges Road. One of the reasons is three sets of Jersey barriers — at the bottom, about a third of the way up the hill, and at the top.
ROBIN WASHINGTON COLUMN: If you hurry, you can buy a ticket online for the Bob Dylan, Wilco and My Morning Jacket concert at Bayfront Festival Park for only $291. Or you can head down to the DECC in person and get them for 68 bucks apiece.
Robin Washington column: Given that their 35 years apiece add up to seven decades at the News Tribune, don’t think for a minute that the greatest moments of reporters Kevin Pates and Mark Stodghill could be summed up in a single column. I’m not even going to try.
Robin Washington column: Our goal was to hit a few sites trashed by visitors on the uninhabited island given to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources by the Nature Conservancy in 2011, a few years after having been slated for development as a golf course and condominium resort.
