This Week's Shameless Budgeteer Plug

Little Boxes, "Danny Does Duluth," the SS Meteor, the old St. Louis County Jail, the Canadian Forces Snowbirds and (even) more pics from Pattison State Park.

"'Danny Does Duluth' Podcaster Speaks Out" :: “It’s a local show about local issues, local news, local stories and the people who are reporting local news stories, from one person’s perspective — which is probably a little bit flawed and disturbing sometimes,” the self-deprecating Daniel J. Golden said of his podcast, “Danny Does Duluth.” I sit down with the sometimes-divisive "fake radio show" personality.

"One to Watch: Little Boxes" :: A Q-and-A with the up-and-coming indie pop duo's Emma Turnquist and Nick Cairl.

"Meteor Celebrates 35 Years as Museum" :: A quick little ditty about Superior's whaleback museum (the only one of its kind). Look for more Meteor coverage in the coming months as we help celebrate these Duluth originals (the whalebacks were first produced at Rice’s Point).

"Duluthians, Show Off Your Canadian Snowbird Pics!" :: If you were one of the many in attendance, and took some nice shots of the precision acrobatic team, e-mail them to us and we'll slide them into our photo gallery. Also included: "Canadian Snowbirds Return to Duluth Skies," a photo gallery of my shots from yesterday evening's free performance.

"Discover Duluth: Pattison State Park, Vol. II"
:: Heading back over to America's Dairyland, I'm reminded of something I read on "There's no way to get bored in Wisconsin if you adore the outdoors." A "essay" and photo gallery.

"Discover Duluth: Old St. Louis County Jail" :: Thanks to St. Louis County Property Management Director Tony Mancuso, the Budgeteer is able to show its readers the inside of the county's old jail in Duluth, which was recently named by Preservation Alliance of Minnesota as one of the 10 most endangered historic places in the state. I'm really proud of this one, another "essay" and photo gallery.
