Share your storm stories
The storms that affected Duluth and the Northland last week brought widespread, devastating damage - but there also have been countless acts of compassion and kindness in the wake of the severe weather. We'd like to give readers a chance to highlight the good deeds they've seen in the past week. Did a neighbor share a generator? Did a complete stranger cut up downed trees on your block? Is there someone else you'd like to thank, or whose efforts deserve recognition?
Share your stories by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org ; we'll run them in an upcoming edition of the News Tribune and/or online at duluthnewstribune.com. Please aim for 100-200 words. Deadline is 10 a.m. Friday.
Superior Hiking Trail cleanup

Volunteers will meet at the Martin Road trailhead at 9 a.m. Thursday and Friday, and carpool from there. Contact email@example.com if you can help.
