Comment on Trampled by Turtles – “It’s a War” live at Red Rocks by Herzog

You didn’t drive all the way out there just for that?

Comment on Summer of ’65: Nothing funny about mink by udarnik

As far as I know, there was nothing funny about it, either.

Comment on Where to have a bonfire in the Duluth area by bluenewt

Thanks much for the ideas. I’m pretty sure it will be a tame, respectful crowd.

Comment on Summer of ’65: Nothing funny about mink by udarnik

Apparently there was a mink farm on 61 near Silver Cliff as well.

Comment on Where to have a bonfire in the Duluth area by Dorkus

As RAE said, there are rules at Wisconsin point. Those same rules should be followed at Knife River beach as well and yes it is OK to have a fire at Knife River beach as long as it is within reason.

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Lawrence Lee

Scott Lunt got it. He, in fact, caught me there. It’s at Amazing Grace Cafe.

And please, as with any beach, bring trash bags with you and pack out what you pack in. Garbage receptacles will not be available.

Comment on Where to have a bonfire in the Duluth area by Rae

Fires must be more than 10 feet from any plant life, and motor vehicle traffic is restricted after 11:00 PM.

Comment on Where to have a bonfire in the Duluth area by bluenewt

Ah, I had not thought of either of those. Thanks. Is it legal to have a fire at Wisconsin Point or Knife River beach?

Comment on Where to have a bonfire in the Duluth area by Dorkus

Park Point is a no-no. They don’t allow them there.

Wisconsin point is much more bonfire-friendly. Another alternative is the Knife River beach, which is about 15 minutes up the shore. Lots of driftwood to be burned there.

Huh … kids for bait? I think I’ll stick with leeches.

Comment on Major Concerts at the DECC: 1966 to 2010 by kevinp

Any idea when Ted Nugent with the Scorpions played there? I believe it was sometime in 1980. I saw a couple other concerts I attended listed, but cannot see anything on Ted Nugent or the Scorpions around that time. It was Ted Nugents Scream Dream ...

Comment on Tribute Fest Weekend Review by Paul Lundgren

The author of this post is an intern at PDD, so … well … clarifications all around, I guess.

Comment on Welcome to Cotton, MN by rev

He’s got some signs you run into when approaching his property from the other side. Same style, but a gentler “no trespassing or you might get shot” message.

Can’t remember the road, was out looking for aurora spots. Might be able to find a ph...

Comment on Tribute Fest Weekend Review by tamara

To be clear, I’m not saying that PDD was suggesting that folks who complained were anti-veteran, but rather the poster who posted it (as well as just about everybody who posted in favor of the loud music on social media.)

Comment on Welcome to Cotton, MN by K. Praslowicz

Thanks. I drove past these last weekend but the word length exceeded how much I could safety take in while passing by and was wondering how nazis happened ever since. Dude needs to work on some brevity if the intended audience is motorists.

Comment on Grassy Point Trail by Paul Lundgren

I had forgotten about that, but yeah, the last time I was there, several months ago, the boardwalk was sinking. So the city probably put the sign up to discourage people from going down there, slipping, breaking a leg and drowning in a bog puddle.

Comment on Grassy Point Trail by rev

We were down there recently. Went past the sign to check it out. Looks the same as it did last time I was there, around a year ago. Part of the boardwalk/dock over the lake sinks as you walk into it -- not sure if that’s on purpose or not, but tha...

Comment on Tribute Fest Weekend Review by Jake

I have it on good authority that the music Friday night was around 100db at the front of house. A loud rock show is generally around 105-115db. Sound and wind can do strange things sometimes.

Comment on Where in Duluth? by brian

Gregg got it -- 2nd St and 21st Ave E. I just noticed today there’s another similar face on the box up the hill at 4th St and 21st Ave E

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Paul Lundgren

A pair of guesses via Facebook:

Where dat face

Comment on Tribute Fest Weekend Review by RubberChicken

Nope. We were right in front of the stage Friday and it was the same as last year. Definitely not louder. By the way, Kaylee Matuszak also played on Friday. She did a fifteen minute set of Brandi Carlile songs between Stevie Ray Vaughn and Prince.

Comment on Tribute Fest Weekend Review by brian

We were in town and about two and a half miles from Bayfront. Even taking in to account atmospheric conditions, the wind, etc., it was quite a bit louder than usual Friday. Saturday and Sunday were fine.

Whoever got the finger wagged at them Satu...

Comment on Tribute Fest Weekend Review by Paul Lundgren

Apparently the volume on Friday was so loud it upset nature itself, as this photo from Saturday night by Tim Mlodozyniec‎ suggests.

An excerpt of Mayor Don Ness’ remarks about this on Facebook (from Saturday morning):

Throughout the evening, I was getting complaints and people were blaming me personally for their frustration with the show — even folks who are normally easygoin...

Comment on Tribute Fest Weekend Review by Paul Lundgren

I haven’t heard much squabbling about the Bayfront curfew lately, but I doubt it’s 10 p.m.

The scheduled starting time for the last band at Tribute Fest was 10 p.m. Bayfront Blues Festival had bands starting at 10:30. I have routinely been at sho...

Comment on Tribute Fest Weekend Review by tamara

Just a thought -- the subtle insinuation that because people were upset about the noise and so that clearly makes them anti-veteran is just a Fox News-worthy ploy to allow this festival to get away with the fact that they went beyond the 10 p.m. c...

Comment on REI Gives $75k to Superior Hiking Trail by Rae

What an amazing donation program -- so fitting that it gives back to its customer base.

Comment on Toasty’s is coming to Downtown by rhetoricguy@gmail.com

I loved the horchata at Jalopeno and went there to eat mediocre food in a terrible environment for the horchata alone.

Farley’s was overpriced mediocre food in a terrible environment, so I went twice and stopped.

Until the property owner treats it...

Comment on Shredded tire mulch: Soft and safe or dirty and dangerous? by alannao

I think people need to talk to the adults supervising the kids on school playgrounds. I know two who suffer from severe sinus/allergy issues ever since the playground they work on 2.5 hours a day contained the rubber mulch, and gets worse every ye...
