I cannot express strongly enough my support of T21. Limiting the sale of e-cigarette (vaping) AND tobacco products to people over 21 is a huge step in decreasing the rates of nicotine addiction by our youth. Rates of tobacco use had been declining steadily for years as older smokers quit or …

Can’t Bob Dylan just answer a straight question? Why must his rare public utterances be so cryptic? Why can’t he sing the way they teach at Hibbing High School? Gosh darn it, why did he say he was from New Mexico when he went on Ed Sullivan?

Some relatives from out of state visited us a few weeks ago. New eyes upon the world we know can show us what we miss. One cousin asked how often we used the lake by our house for swimming, fishing and boating. I had to admit that we did more of that during their visit than we had all the re…

I like to think that I have a pretty sharp memory. My husband might disagree with me about that, but maybe I’ll save that conversation for another time. Like a good novel, I can turn the pages of my memory back and revisit a certain conversation, time or place and remember most if it in vivi…

I was surprised to see the Hibbing Tribune article reporting that not all members of the school board are in favor of the Dylan Project. As a long-time Hibbing resident who knew Bob Dylan's family, the Zimmermans, I'm writing to share some history and urge that the project be completed.

In 1973, Orson Welles produced a strange movie called “F is for Fake.” Loosely structured as a documentary about art forgery, the film attempts to explore the notion of what is real and what isn’t. The whole time Orson hovers through the shots, a corpulent, enigmatic shadow of his Citizen Ka…

I’d like to start with a frank conversation about vampires. Vampires come from ancient folklore, but they’ve been a staple of pop culture for almost two centuries. You know the trope. Tall, Transylvanian type. Fangs. Allergic to sunlight. They used to be stuck-up and creepy; now they’re mood…

As I wake up from my slumber I notice a bear with its beady eyes staring at me. I slowly peek open my eyes and see on the other side of me a pink shoe, an elf and a laughing face. As my eyes come more into focus I spy by my feet a tiger, a duck and an octopus. There’s also a bone, a short co…
