  • HELP!

    I communicated with my website manager a short time ago. He suggested a major overhaul to bring it up with the times. I agreed to meet with him when I returned to Hibbing, probably in April. One thing I am aware of is that I …

  • Kent Krueger’s in my Neighborhood

    It was an ideal Saturday afternoon down here in SW Florida and a special day for me as well. Fort Myers was hosting their annual Reader’s Convention at the local library. The event was huge as many well-known authors had been invited. I noticed in …
