I’ve notice this tree near Portland Square on 12th Avenue East for many years because of its bright orange colors. A few years ago I interviewed some adults who were had a Portland Square Kids Reunion. They had many fun stories to tell about growing up in the area. BUT, they also told me that […]

A couple and a couple of hobo bowls

I snapped this photo at the The Juice Pharm.

It seats only a few people. (Many visit […]

Storm downs trees

  Duluthians awoke to the sounds of thunder. Lighting flashed over and over for 30 minutes. Winds of 60 mph whipped through the airport in Duluth Heights. A ship on Lake Superior reported winds at 72 mph. Trees fell over power lines and streets early this morning. On social media I had some reports of […]
