If you have a mental image of Duluth, Minn., most likely it's of a remote and frigid spot on the nation's winter weather map, a place you wouldn't want to visit even if someone paid your way.But Duluth in summer is a great delight -- a cool and sunny place of beauty and many surprises. And it's the gateway to the lakes and woods of northern Minnesota and the splendid North Shore of Lake Superior.Duluth was founded as a railroad town in the mid-1800s. It became a bustling port and industrial center, especially after the discovery of iron ore on the Mesabi Range (about 50 miles north of Duluth)

In the newspaper there is a picture of some poor guy nTC shoveling snow in Duluth, Minn., where it is 32 degrees below zero, only with the wind chill factor it feels like, I don't know, 200 below.The picture makes me laugh out loud. It's only 10 below here in Baltimore. What the hell is wrong with those people in Duluth? Why do they stay there? Is there some sort of visa problem involved?Honestly, I feel like calling the guy in the picture and saying: "Hey, Lars, did a piano drop on your head recently?

The Baltimore Chamber Orchestra got something more than a talented conductor when it selected a successor to founding music director Anne Harrigan in June. Markand Thakar, mild-mannered professor for a great metropolitan conservatory and soft-spoken music director of a modest-sized orchestra in northeastern Minnesota, may turn out to be a classical music hero. All right, hero is too strong a word, but, these days, anyone who can point to the sort of trend-bucking success that Thakar has generated seems more powerful than a speeding finale by Beethoven.

Lake Superior never gives up its dead, Gordon Lightfoot sang in "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."The balladeer's line is about the hundreds of bodies from Superior's shipwrecks that have never been recovered, among them the men of the Fitzgerald, an ore carrier that went down with all 29 hands in a 1975 storm.But the words apply just as well to the vessels on the lake's bottom. The largest of the Great Lakes never surrenders its sunken ships to the decay, corrosion and encrustation that, over time, obliterate man-made objects in saltwater.

DULUTH, MINN. -- For Hanukkah, the eight-day Jewish holiday celebrated this week, the black Jewish community in Duluth is having - Let me rephrase that. There isn't a black Jewish community in Duluth, except me. It used to be my daughter and me about 20 years ago. But we moved from Minnesota to Massachusetts, and now that she's grown and established in her career, she has no immediate need to move back. I did return, and here I am. Duluth aside, there actually are a lot of black Jews.

Think of it as Fargo meets Bowling for Dollars. I'm not saying it's great or that you're even going to like it, but Comedy Central's Let's Bowl is definitely weird enough that it's worth checking out the premiere tonight at 10:30 on the cable channel. The new series is set in Minneapolis at a bowling alley straight out of the NBC comedy / drama, Ed. The concept -- if you want to call it that -- involves two area residents with "a beef" against each other settling it with one game of bowling before a crowd of Minneapolis residents.
