Merry Christmas, my good fellow! Maybe in the spring, the DPI will make a comeback! We will see!

Comment on Duluth’s Pine Knot Cabin on Minnesota Point – Everything you wanted to know about its removal, history, etc. by Paul Lundgren

Although criticism of Watters & Sons Excavating was somewhat mild here, it bears noting that the company was in the news last week for essentially disappearing after winning a bid to replace culvert pipes under Toledo Street in Duluth's Kenwood ne...

You guys are awesome. Never expected this turn.

Comment on The Zamboni Explosion and Peterson Arena Fire of 2004 by Paul Lundgren

I should take a moment to clarify at greater length that while indeed the phrase "Zamboni explosion" is indisputably funny, obviously this incident was terrifying for the broomball players who were there, some of them thrown over boards by the for...

Comment on Larson announces she’ll run for mayor by Niff Bimrod

I gotta side with Ramos here, nobody seems to give a shit about where the money comes from. To keep it on topic: Go Emily!

Comment on Duluth Grill looking for more local food suppliers by DaVe

That's an impressive list of local suppliers. Thanks for demonstrating how the future will (hopefully) work.

Comment on Duluth Grill looking for more local food suppliers by TimK

You should contact Emel at the Khyber Pass in St. Paul. He serves organic lamb (delicious!).

Comment on Duluth Button Collection by Barrett Chase

Does this collection accept match books?

Comment on Duluth Button Collection by Barrett Chase

This one came from the 2014 UMD Homecoming Parade.

I recently unearthed this one from my sock drawer.

Comment on Larson announces she’ll run for mayor by Ramos

I get so tired of talking about debt. People nod and agree, then everything I say goes flying out the window as soon as some new, giant, dreamy project appears. I would almost be willing to forgo the referendum and build the new library without it...

Comment on Hey, filmmakers! Come to Duluth! by Merrittdweller

Anything in West Duluth, the Wade, Ely's Peak, St. Louis River, Bardon's Peak etc.

Comment on Minnesota Olympians by USA Men's Hockey in Gold Medal Game (plus UMD note) - Perfect Duluth Day

[…] earlier local Winter Olympics connections post here on PDD didn’t exactly catch fire, what with Wilco coming to town, people waving pitchforks at […]

Comment on The Zamboni Explosion and Peterson Arena Fire of 2004 by BadCat!

I knew two of the guys who were in there when it happened, and they were completely tweaked out afterwords (jumped at any loud noise). Being the asshole that I am, I sent them both "Get Well" ecards from Zamboni's website.

Comment on Larson announces she’ll run for mayor by Claire

Forgot about the $14,000 the councilors pull down. IMHO, Duluth is getting their money's worth from these councilors. As far as I can tell from my ringside seat, they work their butts off for the city. John, I really think the socioeconomic statu...

Comment on Hey, filmmakers! Come to Duluth! by Herzog

The old dilapidated cell-block, that gets 'em every time. Who wouldn't want to plan their entire movie around a shitty old jail? So much feeling to be had where the bunk and the toilet meet. And if you're going for gritty, why did you leave ever...

Comment on Larson announces she’ll run for mayor by Ramos

Of course, it's not just the council. The administration is planning to put the new library to a referendum vote, so the whole electorate will be able to participate in the money-fest eventually. Who wouldn't vote yes for a brand-new $30 million ...

Comment on Hey, filmmakers! Come to Duluth! by Ramos

Movies shot in Canada are subsidized by the Canadian government. Not that I necessarily advocate subsidizing movies (with current technology, some brilliant kid could write a script and shoot a movie on the frozen wastes of Lake Superior for nothi...

Comment on Larson announces she’ll run for mayor by Ramos

Once you subtract their $14,000 (or thereabouts) council stipend from the total, you're left with $11, 425. I'm sure all the councilors make that; certainly the professors and lawyers and landlords and salaried city employees among them do. If any...

Comment on Hey, filmmakers! Come to Duluth! by Aldin

The last film I know of being made here was called Duluth is Horrible. The whole affair seemed like a West Coast hipster was mocking our fair city while the local yokels ate it all up. Secondly, do you know why it was cheaper for the TV show <em>F...

Comment on Larson announces she’ll run for mayor by Claire

I really don't think the mayor and Duluth City Council is a "money fest," John, that is ridiculous. I won't name names, but I am fairly confident that several of the city councilors make pretty close to the Duluth per capita income (as of 2013, th...

Comment on Larson announces she’ll run for mayor by Ramos

Currently, the mayor and all nine city councilors earn in excess of Duluth's median income. It's a money-fest.

Comment on Hey, filmmakers! Come to Duluth! by Ramos

Good point, Dave P. I'll bet the icy wasteland aspect of Duluth would be more appealing to a lot of filmmakers than Canal Park. I'm wondering about the 25 percent cashback thing. Where does that come from?

Comment on Larson announces she’ll run for mayor by Paul Lundgren

It should probably be noted that it wasn't long ago when Duluth government was an utter sausage party. In early 2003 the mayor and all nine city councilors were male. Laurie Johnson broke that up when she was elected District 1 City Councilor (ser...
