A crew from the PBS series History Detectives will be shooting in Duluth this week, attempting to solve the mystery behind a small watercolor painting that may have become a Tiffany window.
On Thursday, Dec. 9, host Gwendolyn Wright and the crew will be shooting at First Presbyterian Church and Duluth’s Historic Union Depot.
The story will air with History Detectives ninth season during the summer of 2011.
Now that the challenged ballots from St. Louis County are available online, here’s a look at the nine from Duluth.
The first one is from precinct 3 (Lakeside) and the next two are from precinct 7 (Hunters Park).
In the next set, the first is from precinct 11 (Kenwood) and the next two are from precinct 19 (Downtown).
In the last set, the first is from precinct 24 (Duluth Heights), the second is from precinct 27 (Piedmont Heights) and the third is from precinct 34 (West Duluth).
Someone explain why this is so fun.

Hartley Nature Center and Wild Ones invite you to join us as we welcome author Robert Michael Pyle who will share stories and selected passages from his recently released book Mariposa Road. The event begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 9 at Hartley Nature Center.
Part road-trip tale, part travelogue of lost and found landscapes, all good-natured natural history, Mariposa Road (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 9/27/10) tracks Bob Pyle’s journey across the United States as he races against the calendar in his search for as many of the 800 American butterflies as he can find.

Over the past two months I’ve been collecting parts for a Telecaster I’m building. I finally had acquired everything and made sure all the parts were compatible with each other. Now I’m ready to paint my body and realized it is a bit chilly to be painting (and I don’t have a heated garage or patio). So my question … does anyone know of someone who could paint my blank guitar body locally? I’m incredibly anxious to play this guitar and don’t want to wait until March when the weather would be much more cooperating.
I went for a run on the Park Point trail today. Just after the water station I noticed something different about the trail.
It was wider and torn up a bit. (My dog, Essa, was also a witness.)

I was wondering where in the heck a person buys a Christmas tree in Duluth these days? It’s not exactly something you can look up online as far as I know … PDD’s help is greatly appreciated!
I still have one nagging question that came up during the campaign: “Can you get good Malaysian food anywhere near Duluth?”
Anyone have an answer?
