It'll be an evening of wine, music, art, and more - to raise money for a good cause! Friday, February 10 is the date of the 7th annual Love Your Local Artist event at the Superior Public Library. The event starts at 5:30 PM.
You might love the January Thaw we're experiencing - but it doesn't bode well for outdoor winter activities. With the warm temperatures and rain we've experienced this past week (and are anticipated throughout the weekend), the City of Superior has moved to temporarily close the municipal skating rinks and pull grooming efforts from the cross country ski trails.
We live in an area rich with natural beauty and resources. From trees and woodland to lakes and streams, we are lucky that we get the chance to recreate close to home. As the organization tasked with regulating the use of these items, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is looking to make plans for the next decade or two. By establishing long range plans, they can most-effectively manage the resources we have.
Sometimes you can hear about an event but you need to experience it for yourself in order to realize what it's all about. That was the idea behind our radio station crew playing hooky (not "hockey" - with pun (semi) intended) yesterday on the ice near Barkers Island in Superior. As the Twin Ports gets ready for the Lake Superior Ice Festival, we decided to actually get out on the ice at the event site to get an up-close and personal look at what awaits.
Make sure the kids don't miss this one! A Tricked Out Valentine's craft program will happen at Saturday, February 4 at the Superior Public Library, starting at 11:30 AM. Kids of all ages are invited to take part in this free program, co-presented by the Northern Expressions Arts Collective.
Big things are in store for the Western Waterfront Trail - the scenic walkway that snakes along the St. Louis River near West Duluth, Morgan Park, Smithville, Gary-New Duluth, and Fon Du Lac. City officials are about to embark on a revitalization effort that they hope will breathe new life into the area. As they create those plans, you're invited to help out.
As trendy as genealogy is these days, there are a bunch of websites that make it easy for the average person to get started tracing their family tree. Most of these sites require a membership fee - or at least make you sign up for a free trial membership. However, there is a site that allows anyone and everyone to search public data for free and you may want to learn more about it to control your privacy.
Whether you're looking to "go green" or just "save some green", here's an opportunity available through your utility provider. Customers who receive their electric and gas needs via Superior Water Light and Power are able to order a free kit from the Simple Energy Efficiency Program made available via Wisconsin Focus On Energy.
If it seems like the roads in the Northland have been extraordinarily slippery this winter - you're probably correct. A so-called "perfect storm" of weather conditions - alternating cold and snow - have left our highways and side streets a virtual skating rink of black ice so far.
