Question: What are the positives taking place within the county?

The Northland grant was one of two McGregor Kids Plus was recently awarded. Kids Plus Director Cheryl Meld said the Northland grant will mean Kids Plus will receive technical assistance for their “Marketplace Project” from the Northland Foundation, the University of Minnesota-Duluth Center for Economic Development and MAP for non-profits, based in St. Paul.

“The technical assistance will give us knowledge and tools to create a successful foundation for launching our project,” said Meld.

With this in mind, my minions and I painstakingly did our homework and meticulously turned the theme upside down and carefully crafted each clue to bring you closer, yet not so close as to “hold your hand.”

Now, before I go any further I’d like to say a bit about my spokesman, Denny. Denny, (the chosen one), has been a very loyal subject to me in so far as not trying to identify me. You see, not even he knows where the medallion is each year. When the clues are hand-delivered to Denny, we meet in the darkness of night at a different location each week. With my bold stature, hoodie up to disguise my looks, and deep voice, I utter those raspy words, “Here’s the clue, now go.” My minions on the other hand are a crazy bunch of “cornballs.” They think they can get away with anything.
