I've only been on the Lakewalk a couple of times lately because of surgery, but I'm going to be ramping my running up in hopes to run the Grandma's Half Marathon. If you're a frequent user of the Lakewalk or are floatin' in my boat with just starting training, you need to know that they will be closing a portion for about two weeks.
I'm not totally frugal about everything, but for some reason I felt the need to start saving the dog toy monkeys that Bauer the Schnauzer has chewed holes in. After 8 monkeys, a hedge hog and the worm started taking up too much space in the craft room, I decided it was time to open the sewing kit and repair. Oh, one thing, I can't sew.
For locals, the blue slip bridge near the DECC in the Canal has been a source of frustration. We never knew if it would be operational or if it would be inoperable and stuck in the open position making it useless to foot traffic. The City of Duluth announced in a press release today that they are planning on making changes to the bridge to improve the design.
One of the most exciting things to happen in the automotive industry is the introduction of the aluminum body from Ford. It's lighter, less likely to dent (because lighter means they can make it thicker), and also more costly. Edmunds.com did a great video on what happens if you need body work done to an aluminum truck. Would it be more expensive?
Nothing is worse than a crimp in your day that will affect the way you look as you head to work. Fortunately, we are able to warn you of this disruption in water service so you can prepare and hopefully most people will have already left for work before the repair begins in the Kenwood neighborhood.
I knew it would only be a matter of time before construction hit my side of town. I've been warning you of bridge closures and detours and up until now, it hasn't affected me in my daily driving. But, for those of us in the Lincoln Park District, the time has come. Here's what you need to know to make sure you pick an alternative route to get you to your destination on time.
It happens! You and your family are enjoying a Saturday afternoon on one of Duluth's popular bike routes and your bicycle chain slips or falls off. Or, your daughter gets a flat tire. Sure, you could call someone to help, but you have no idea how to explain to get to you. Don't panic, the City of Duluth and Continental Ski & Bike have you covered! With self-service bike repair stations.
Ever since we bought our home, we've had a ton of projects to do. That's where all of our money goes, that's where all of my free time goes. I can't do anything about the time, but I can do something to make the money go a little farther- doing it yourself.
The City of Duluth is warning motorists that a portion of Grand Avenue will be narrowed to two lanes for a water main repair to begin this Thursday, June 21 and last for three days. My question is: how will it affect the citizens that live in the area?
A couple of years ago I inherited a vintage boat from my Grandpa who had passed away. As sad as it was to lose my Grandpa, it did bring me some comfort that I would be able to share his passion for fishing by taking care of his boat. It’s a 1957 14 foot aluminum boat, with a Gale Buccaneer 12hp motor...
