Comments for Perfect Duluth Day
Skeptical indeed. How many times have artists and arts organizations tried to skirt environmental laws or bullied unions into accepting the “pollution = jobs” mythology. How many arts organizations are bribing legislators, thanks to Citizens Unit...
Of course, it’s important to approach arts numbers put out by arts organizations with a certain skepticism, like one would with mining numbers put out by mining organizations. That being stated, here are the figures from The Impact and Health of t...
Good eye, Fonixmunkee. I watched it twice and didn’t catch that … and I’ve been there enough to know.
Well, at the 1:00 mark, they are at the Anchor … but you can only see it for a second.
… I’ve been there enough to know.
One of the trolleys used today by the Minnesota Streetcar Museum for seasonal runs between Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun is an old Duluth streetcar with a rolling destination sign for Woodland, Crosley and Lester Park. I looked but I don’t have a...
Thanks Paul. I have heard several different pronunciations; that wasn’t one of them!
Great stuff--I’m especially fond of the Cedar Gin. Now, please, how do we pronounce the name of this company???
I’ve been thinking about it too, ever since Melissa posted this. I actually have kinda stopped posting on PDD, because it seems like, so many times, I become snarky and rude. This has *nothing* to do with PDD, of course, but it has everything to d...
Dubrue operated at 211 E. Second St., a former Gold Cross Ambulance garage. Bob Blair and Nick Cameron were the owners; both had previously brewed at Fitger’s Brewhouse.
The microbrewery put out two beers — Pub Ale and India Black Ale — starting i...
Not sure if this is correct in this context, but on page 68 of this government PowerPoint, DSS appears to mean Distilled Spirits Specialty.
I’ve been thinking about this, and as much as I can defend bringing this subject up in the first place and claim my intentions were good, the reality is when I re-read the Murder House posts I feel terrible. There were a lot of things left unstate...
Ditto. The siskens are engaging in Bird Wars, and are scaring our chickadees away. We put out food for everyone, and now the birds are chowing down, sort of in harmony, but still with much aggression.
Us, too. Dozens of ravenous, quarrelsome siskins who seem to have driven the chickadees away.
I may also put a some solo acoustic versions on the album. That may be one of them. Peace!
Same here–there has been an influx of pine siskins and redpoll at my feeders too. It would be interesting to know if there is an explanation.
Same here. A flock of 30-40 of them have been coming to my feeder several times a day for about a week now. They can empty the feeder in a few hours. Meanwhile, the chickadees have disappeared.
Thank you for sharing this. Whether a person makes a pro-trapping or anti-trapping argument, this clearly was not responsible trapping. Poor thing was almost cut in half — slowly.
I suspect we are seeing an irruption.
I have had quite a few at my feeder as well, and they are reluctant to allow the chickadees in. Mixed into the flock I will spot an occasional Redpoll. Very fun!
Sorry for being cranky. That’s good work.
A good investigation takes a little time. Using a bunch of photos and reports from DNT readers, I’ve managed to pinpoint the time of the collapse to a 50-minute span on Saturday, Feb. 7.
Actually, this is NOT legal.
Snare use is, but any snare that is not intended to drown the animal needs to be checked daily. I doubt this bobcat was able to chew through the snare in one day, considering the wounds.

I love that song. Now I’ll have to buy the CD to see if you ruined it!
So glad this beautiful boy was saved! Wildwoods is having its fundraiser on May 3 at Clyde Iron. I can’t wait and it’s a fun way to help the critters.
Jesus Herbert Walker Christ. It’s 2015. What the hell are people still doing trapping at all, let alone with snares?
I don’t think there is an issue of not doing research. It seems to me that Krueger and Thomas were working on stories at the same time, independently, and Thomas happened to have shot a photo a few weeks ago.
Thanks for the update, though. That n...
(Thomas’s article is also better than Andrew Krueger’s DNT piece.)
You’d think the people down at the News Tribune building would do their research. Richard Thomas of the Budgeteer took a picture of that pillar on Jan. 27, and posted the picture online.
Or when the Old Man of the Mountain collapsed.
