After the Northshore Mining shut down in December some would think Ruby's Pantry in Silver Bay would have lines out the door on each and every distribution day. However, that doesn't seem to be the case, according volunteer Laurie Kallinen. The nonprofit based out of Pine City distributes food throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin, offering about $100 worth of edibles for just $20. After the Silver Bay distribution site opened in January 2014, it had between 300 and 400 people coming by to pick up a $20 share each month, but that number has gone down in recent months after a new distribution site opened in Grand Marais. Before the Grand Marais site opened, customers were coming from as far away as Thunder Bay, Ontario.

When Two Harbors swimmer Travis Elling climbed the podium at the YMCA section swim meet in Grand Rapids last month, the 10-year-old's first season as a competitive swimmer had not only produced a ticket to the state meet on Sunday in Minneapolis, it was also a triumph over fear and adversity. Travis qualified for the state meet in the 50 yard and 100 yard freestyle, the 50 yard breaststroke and the 400 yard freestyle relay at the section meet in January, setting personal bests in both the individual freestyle events. Travis danced around the pool and yelled "I'm going to state!" It's the kind of delight that just brings a smile to any faces within earshot.
