Where in Duluth, the trashy version

This is from today, FYI. And it all sits in my recycling now. You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!

What I want to know is why a full box of last years field guides didn't get distributed.

Also Dizzo's backyard.

As far as the "Where in Duluth?" element of this goes ... well ... anyone who knows the answer would have to admit to not picking them up and failing at samaritanism.

Spy1, however, can pad his resume with this prestigious honor.

I would be one of those bad people who saw this three weeks ago and figured the owner would be back. At that time, the box was sitting on the pavement all neat and taped up. I was hoping someone might explain the odd location of this cache. I will reveal said location after 24 hours if the real mystery-solver doesn't. Tonight, I drink from the PDD Samaritan Award cup. I'd like to thank my mother.

My backyard is not the correct answer. 

Point of fact - Homegrown relies on volunteer help to distribute the field guides to businesses throughout our community (and beyond). As with all organizations, not everything is going to run perfect. May the curse of the Chicken be upon those who throw away these guides (and the blessing of the Chicken upon Spy1)

I was pleased, however, to receive a text from a visiting friend who was happy to have found this year's Field Guide still available at RT Quinlan's. Thanks for continuing to disperse the guides we've got left, Quinlan's!

Herzog for the win, Spy 1. He was out on his bike earlier this week, thereby exonerated for not scooping them, because he reasoned the gas to run back and do so would cancel out the good-sam act. He then went home and dutiously tried to post this thread before it was maliciously squashed, thereby paving the way for your thread:

It kills me I could not secure a photograph of the shameless dumping scene I witnessed on my otherwise perfect bike ride past Brighton beach tonight to gather Balm of Gilead for my pagan rituals,  as those of you familiar with my body of work here on PDD know I am loathe to highlight any D-Baggery which may arise from the rank and file of the Homegrown Glitterati.  But as of right now, Thursday June 6, there lays at the first pull-off northeast of Brighton Beach, a full box of nearly mint, discarded Homegrown Field Manuals, or whatever it is you people call them, shamelessly dumped in the parking lot. No used condoms, beer cans, or deer stumps this time... just Homegrown Mags. I realized this when I made a full sweeping return to check the contents of the box and make sure it wasn't anything that would scar my memory for a lifetime, like the last dirty scene I witnessed at this all-too-popular spot for dumping shit, and teenage carnal lust. Unbelievable as it would seem, that someone, presumably of the Homegrown crew, simply couldn't recycle about 150 Homegrown programs into a receptacle seven miles closer to their abode, seeing as how recycling is FREE in the state of Minnesota.  I will attempt to photograph the crime scene in the coming weeks until the perpetrators turn themselves to face justice.

Herzog, if you had replied to the e-mail I sent you, your post might not have been "maliciously squashed."

Weekend ice skating during the summer

Does anyone know if there's any open skating on weekends in the Duluth area during the summer? I work 8-5...
