Add one more set of orange signs and cones to your commute on April 28 and 29: Officials with the Minnesota Department of Transportation are alerting drivers to some temporary ramp closures off the Blatnik Bridge.
While I'm not a fan of hotdishes myself - many people in the Northland are; That's why they've become almost as synonymous as snow in our area. Perhaps that's why Minnesota State legislators decided a few years ago to have a hotdish competition.

It caught me off guard. I opened a fresh package of Bounty paper towels and placed one of the rolls on the dispenser in my kitchen. When I looked back at it I couldn't help but notice that the design print on this roll had a familiar look to it; One of the design features looks like the top-half of the symbol that the Symbionese Liberation Army used in the 1970's. Their symbol was a seven-headed cobra.
