Cartoonist Frank Haggerty describes himself as a retired guy who has been “enjoying the heck out of doing weekly cartoons” for newspapers in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. His take on life in our region is depicted in Up North with LeRoy. Frank contacted me this week and sent some samples from his portfolio. I laughed out loud. It’s clear that Frank is no newcomer poking fun at people the Northland. He’s one of us and his work reflects the unique humor and sensibilities we share here. In fact, I secretly think Le Roy is modeled after my father! I know you’ll enjoy this weekly addition to the Lake County News-Chronicle. Be sure to let me know what you think.
