After nearly two months and an estimated 125,000 visitors, the end is near for the ice caves on Lake Superior in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Access to the wildly popular attraction will close for the season no later than Sunday night because of changing ice conditions, officials said. As the ice on Lake Superior breaks up, it is creating uncertainty about the safety of reaching the caves along the mainland shore of the lake near Cornucopia, park officials said.
In the Feb. 28 News Tribune, syndicated movie reviewer Richard Roeper told us his opinion about the new movie, "Son of God." He told us not to waste our time or money. But I totally disagreed with his opinion. My wife and I went, and we both felt the acting was great and, for the most part, Roma Downey and her husband, Mark Burnett, did a great job presenting the "greatest story ever told." I am 59 years old and have seen most movies about Jesus, and this ranks as one of the better ones.
"They shall beat their swords into plowshares, spears into pruning hooks; nations shall not war against nation, nor shall they study war anymore."

The Russians move into a Crimea that should have stayed Russian with its majority Russian population. Republican war drums begin to roll as they accuse President Barack Obama of not getting tough.

"'Twilight,' I'm sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she's going to kill herself," Woodley told Teen Vogue for the April issue's cover story. "What message are we sending to young people?
Is "Duck Dynasty" just a big advertisement for the Almighty? At least one of the stars seems to think so. Sadie Robertson, the teenage daughter of Duck Commander boss Willie Robertson, tells Fox411 that her clan decided to do the A&E reality series in order to spread the word of the Lord. "When we began 'Duck Dynasty,' we weren't starting it for fame," Robertson said.
ST. PAUL - Seventeen years ago, when the Duluth community organized its first lobbying blitz of Minnesota lawmakers, we were the only ones doing it. We stood out. We were remembered. Today, communities and organizations from around the state descend on the Capitol every single day to pitch their needs, to tell their story and to win favor for money and laws that help them prosper, grow and be happy. With the annual, two-day, hundreds-strong Duluth and St. Louis County at the Capitol event wrapping up with a legislative breakfast this morning, it's fair to ask: Is our event still relevant?
TODAY: Expect a 30 percent chance of a.m. flurries and mostly cloudy skies throughout the afternoon. A low-pressure system is just to our north in southern Ontario. FRIDAY: The low has a cold front that will move into the region Friday. Morning lows will be around 28, and highs should be in the upper 30s. Temperatures will drop in the afternoon as the front passes, giving us a 40 percent chance of a mix of sleet/snow/rain. SATURDAY: High pressure will build from the north, and we'll start to see an east wind.
