There are certain “uniquely Duluth” opportunities that I make a concerted effort to cash in on. An afternoon trip up the North Shore on April 8 to attend a ribbon-cutting for the New Scenic Cafe was one of them. As a member of the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, it’s my duty to go to ribbon cuttings.

When our daughter was about three years old, her father — my then-husband — wanted a dog. He had wanted one since she was a newborn, but I always said, “No, taking care of a baby is enough work.” Soon both my preschooler and her father were lobbying for a dog. We were living in suburban Seattle at the time and went on a couple of “wild goose chases” in freeway traffic to check out purebred dogs listed in the Seattle Times classifieds.
