My name is Jed and I'm a Vikings fan. It's probably not the most popular thing to admit in this county, I know. But I'm originally from west central Minnesota. I own a purple horned helmet with yellow braids. I miss Cris Carter and was happy to see Daunte's small hands roll out to Miami. That being said, I was a little apprehensive about my Tuesday assignment to cover the "Green Bay Packers' Tailgate Tour Stop" at Wessman Arena.
Madness, truly madness. This year it's a 6-foot-4 ex-president versus a 6-5 photographer. See, it's March Madness time again, so while I was filling out my bracket I figured I would fill out a second bracket using strictly the coin flip. My real picks versus Abe Lincoln's head or tail. The way my picks have gone the last couple of years I couldn't tell you who the favorite is in this match up. In the first round, Abe liked three No. 15 seeds over Wisconsin, Georgetown and Memphis. He also liked No. 14 Wright State over Pittsburgh. My biggest upset pick was 12th-seeded Arkansas over USC.
Gage Blaylock, 2, of Solon Springs has aspirations to capture the world in images. Using his toy camera during a walk in Solon Springs on Tuesday, the toddler was busy taking photographs, and captured the image of Carlson as Carlson snapped the photo above. Blaylock wasn't distracted for long when a caterpillar caught his eye. Below, Blaylock gets low to take a close-up of a caterpillar crossing the road on his walk in Solon Springs.
Dave Engstrom of Proctor paints the exterior of the Fairlawn Mansion from a cherry picker on Wednesday afternoon in Superior. Painters from Swanson and Youngdale of Duluth are working on repainting sides of the mansion facing East Second Street and 10th Avenue East. The second and third floors of the mansion, which are included in the current project, were last repainted in 1991 and 1992, respectively. The first floor was repainted during the first-floor renovation project in 1998.
