Comments for Perfect Duluth Day

Comment on This Week: Baseball, bluesmen and more by BadCat!

I don’t think Berserkon is happening this year. Two failed Kickstarters resulted in calling off for 2015.

Comment on Douglas County fawn emergency created and averted; raccoon adventures by brian

We have one in our yard again this year. I really want to go pet it, dress it up and feed it gumdrops.
But I won’t.

Comment on Duluth Apartment-seeking Advice by KennerDuluth

I currently teach at UMD and will be vacating my 2 bedroom (I think pet-friendly, because some of my neighbors have pets) apartment on the busline at the end of June. I’ve really liked living here, with a few minor exceptions. Horngren Managment; ...

Comment on Duluth Apartment-seeking Advice by BadCat!

Avoid Kurt Bartell unless you want a world of frustration.

Comment on Stories from Emerson School Apartments by Christina Harrison

I went to school at Emerson from kindergarten half way thru 3rd Grade (75-79). When I have come back to Duluth I have made it a point to visit the school. And have been happy to see that it is still standing and not demolished. We had one tragedy...

Comment on Douglas County fawn emergency created and averted; raccoon adventures by Niff Bimrod

and this is why, we, as a species, are doomed…hopefully sooner rather than later, so I can watch from the comfort of my LazEboy…

Comment on Duluth flag? by BadCat!

A recent TED talk and curiosity led me to this long dead post about Duluth’s flag.

TED: Why city flags may be the worst-designed thing you’ve never noticed

Comment on Duluth Library Fine Coupon by Lucie1970

Yeah, that was awkwardly worded. I fixed it. Enjoy the coupon!

Comment on Innoculation Self Portrait by Herzog

Honest, brave, engaging. You’re a talented artist indeed Jill. Captures well the struggles of youth, and seeking a creative path in the 9-5 empire. I’m even of the belief this film has won PDD 2015. Then again, as Beck once said after winning th...

Comment on Duluth Library Fine Coupon by vicarious

You know, like, “taking it up the a$$ for”.

I’m pretty sure she intended to say “in arrears for”, though she probably didn’t KNOW she intended to say that.

Comment on A Guide to Hiking Tischer Creek by FranceneStarr

Nice New Balance shoe ad — and you are braver than I am!

Comment on Was your great-aunt a milliner? Or grandmother? Or second cousin? by GTR

My notes from that work are buried in a storage unit at the moment, I think. Sorry, it’s been a long time. If you go to the public library and look at old city directories from the 1920s, you will see advertisements and names. The librarians can h...

Comment on Free Bulletin Boards in Duluth??? by Noland Makowsky

Thank you all so very much for your answers and suggestions! I really do appreciate it. Also, if anyone knows of anyone needing assistance with getting health insurance and/or SNAP (Food Stamps, EBT card), please gives us a call at Community Actio...

Comment on Peter Juhl rocks! by bluenewt

I wonder if you are thinking of this MPR piece, RUBY2SD4Y, about rock doc Joel Carter.

Comment on Best Twin Ports Newstand? by Chris Machmer

For the edification of all -- I’ve confirmed Kerc’s comment. I also went to the main branch, and they have out of date magazines on a rack for sale at 54 cents per, with tax. Cheers!

Comment on Was your great-aunt a milliner? Or grandmother? Or second cousin? by emilymoesewco

I don’t actually need a relative — just someone who knows enough about a milliner that I can get the broad arch of a story. Do you indeed have some names? Because what I’ve been finding online hasn’t been great. Just photos of ladies. Nothing biog...

Comment on Was your great-aunt a milliner? Or grandmother? Or second cousin? by GTR

These Granite Islands is a fictional story, but based on some good research, and involves millenry. Sarah Stonich is a Minnesota author, likely accessible. Maybe she’d share her resources?

I have done living history where I (just incidentally) s...

Comment on Fashion Wagon – Minnesota Woolen by Paul Lundgren

Minnesota Woolen ad from 1965

Here is a Minnesota Woolen two-page ad spread from the Duluth News Tribune, Aug. 1, 1965. It also should be mentioned that a clip from the film mentioned in the first comment to this post landed on PDD last October.

Comment on Denfeld vs. Central: The Pranks by Ron Ozan

I can tell you the story is true about the pig being let go inside Central. I was there. The pig came from a senior girl’s (Julie) boyfriend’s farm. We drove up to Central in Packy’s van. The poor little pig was inside a gunny sack and we dumped o...

Comment on Free Bulletin Boards in Duluth??? by Beverly

Because of your target audience, I’d ask at Goodwill, Salvation Army store, etc. Also, the county’s WIC office, food shelf, libraries. Many gas stations will hang posters, too. If you could get inexpensive fliers printed, the public schools might ...

Comment on Peter Juhl rocks! by ruby2sd4y

Is this the same person who made these stacks all around town and in Chester Park?
I remember seeing several all around town, and an article somewhere about how sad people were when they found them knocked down after being there awhile. Was that h...

Comment on Free Bulletin Boards in Duluth??? by ruby2sd4y

SuperOne Kenwood used to have one, not sure if they still do. Used to be many of the grocery stores had them, but some are long gone. Sometimes they still post in windows. You could also contact leasing companies to see if you can post them in t...

Comment on Free Bulletin Boards in Duluth??? by kerc

Is there one inside the Heritage Center? There’s a boys/girls club there.

Comment on Select Images from Denfeld’s 1938 Oracle by Paul Lundgren

Eisenach Pharmacy Popcorn

Dave sends along a new photo of the restored Minit Pop popcorn machine, ready to pop! Dave says it “makes great fresh popcorn in about a minute. Probably how it got its name.”

Comment on Free Bulletin Boards in Duluth??? by jessige

Starbucks on Woodland has a small board, though I don’t know what their requirements are. Also, there are a couple public boards on the UMD campus for non-university sponsored events. Ask at the Welcome Desk in Kirby Student Center for locations...

Lovely group of photos…
Bryan and Brian… sweet! Jessica… no words.
