Do You Remember O’Keefe?


According to this website, the Duluth Public Library had a library cat named “O’Keefe” from 1982 to 1996.

I moved here in 1994 and have never seen nor heard anything about O’Keefe. Any of you long-timers know more? Why don’t we have a current library cat? I’d love to peruse the sci-fi section and come across a napping tabby.

(This isn’t an actual photo of O’Keefe – I just thought it was a cute pic)

I am feeling bad for repeating the rumor that Two Harbors High School students cut down the “honking tree” as a senior prank.

Poor tree. Bad Human.

William Zantzinger, the former tobacco farmer and property fraudster who “killed poor Hattie Carroll,” as Bob Dylan famously sang, died in disgraced obscurity on Jan. 3.
