New video about CHUM in Duluth

Video Archive: Duluth’s Lake Place Park — “the park in the sky” — under construction

From KBJR-TV, Oct. 25, 1990.

[Note: This video was removed by the YouTube user.]

You’ll notice the headlines from 20 years ago seem to mirror those of today. Before Barbara Reyelts’ piece on Lake Place Park, which starts 2 minutes into the video, you’ll see the president refusing to raise taxes, gas prices rising and ramp closures on local freeways.

Among the commercials at the end of the video is one for the late Senator Paul Wellstone, who back then was campaigning to replace Rudy Boschwitz.

The Danielson family’s 400-foot zip line

R.I.P. Cathy Curley, feminist pioneer

“Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“If I can’t dance I don’t want to be in your revolution.” — Emma Goldman

I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the untimely death last night of Cathy Curley – founder of Safe Haven, the Lake Superior Regional Justice Center, domestic violence prevention and intervention pioneer, community activist, mother, friend, mentor, lover of life.

William Canning — traveling evangelist known in Duluth for his strange gyrations in Canal Park

Apparently, according to the video description on YouTube, some guy named Jon was vacationing in Duluth in the 1990s and came across a fellow “making some very strange moves” that were “too good to pass up,” so he videotaped it. Earlier this summer, he uploaded it to YouTube.

As it turns out, I have the scoop on who the “man dancing in Canal Park” is.
