Duluth is about to take Bismarck's challenge lying down. With its arms and legs waving in the snow. At 11 a.m. Saturday, thousands of people will lie in the snow on athletic fields at the University of Minnesota Duluth, trying to make enough snow angels at once to get into Guinness World Records. In the process, they'll raise tens of thousands of dollars to help provide clean drinking water for an indigenous people in Ethiopia. The "Make Your Mark: Angels for a Cause" event is the brainchild of the Rotary of Duluth Club 25 and the Proctor High School DECA club.
The Perham water tower by the middle and elementary schools might be getting a facelift this summer. The 500,000-gallon tower has been looking a little worn in recent years, and city leaders are thinking it may be time for a fresh coat of paint. At a meeting last week, Jade Berube of Apex Engineering Group told city councilors that the exterior as well as part of the interior of the tower were due for cleaning and recoating.
ST. PAUL -- The message from Minnesota's rural Democratic senators about this week's gun-bill flurry is simple: Don't expect a warm reception in the Senate.

"The Senate has always been the more reasonable body," Sen.

OK, I admit it. Watching the Super Bowl on Sunday was weird for me. Because, first of all, I was watching football. Me. The girl who never watches football. Never ever. At all. Not even the biggest game of the year. Nothing against it, I just never got into it. I'm the soft-hearted type who prefers the Puppy Bowl (and its kitty show half-time). All those cute little fluffballs playing around on that fake little "football field," with the refs calling penalties for adorable things like illegal napping and potty whoopsies... what's not to love? But this year, I didn't watch the Puppy Bowl.
