The October Surprise: Local Astroturfing »

I never voted for the fellow (and certainly didn’t intend to in the upcoming election), didn’t care for his politics but I did have a certain amount of respect for him and thought he was sincere and certain key issues aside thought he was an OK fellow.

Jim Stauber caught writing letter of support for himself

Ah Jimmy, looks like your twelve years of public service might be coming to a poor end.

Getting to that time of year »

So, I am curious, as I prepare my next ‘The Local’ show (1/9) for KUMD I am filling it up with music from last year. On the not completely impossible chance I’ve missed something local and great from 2012 I’d love to know people’s favorite local albums, EPs. etc from this past year. Listmania away!

Songs about Duluth Places/Neighborhoods »

So, awhile back there was a whole hour on KUMD where a couple ner’de’wels played songs about or mentioning Duluth. Next question: How many songs can people name that mention places or neighborhoods, in Duluth. I’ve got five, but there must be more.

Saturday, March 12 »

WI Governor Scott Walker will be in Washburn WI around 4pm this Saturday, for a Lincoln Day diner. The fine folks of the town plan to give him a “warm” welcome, especially in light of the WI Senate passing the so called Budget Fix bill on Wednesday, despite three weeks of constant protest against it.

Washburn is a lot closer than Madison.

Spreading seeds »

Say.. does anyone have one of those grass seed/lawn aerator/spreader thingambobs I could borrow for a week sometime in the next month or so? We are slowly trying to convert our lawn to almost exclusively clover and one of those would totally rock.

Please and thanks.
