Folks, please keep it civil and don’t make personal attacks.
It’s just like real life–just because you believe a person is a so-and-so doesn’t mean you have to say it.

I like him…he’s my friend. I’m only teasing him and he teases me. There are no hurt feelings here…only an exchange of humor. But I can understand how our comments can be taken the wrong way.

Yes, folks, please don’t display any emotions or anything. We don’t want to know how you really feel. Please pretend so you don’t offend. Be civil, not real.

On the Forks’ board right now someone has the F word almost spelled out entirely. Another comment is about a politician whose first name is Rick…someone added a P in front of it. That’s still up to. But a little light-hearted teasing banter gets the vowels taken out of it, we are called trolls, and ridiculed about grunting.

I’m kinda hoping they don’t micromanage too much. What gets me is the posters who habitually write childish material just to get a reaction. Hope people get out and visit the zoo!

I made the mistake of trying to kid someone, I’ll never do that again. It’s evil to say the least.

Too bad the Duluth Zoo can’t have the money that was given to the MN Zoo for the dolphins which they aren’t going to have.

I wish the zoo could get more financial support. The exibits would be gold plated If the zoo was in the canal park area. Seems like Willard Munger was able to get funding for our zoo. The state was able to get exhibits built but the city sort of cut back on funding. The tourists are more of a priority to the city of Duluth than its own citizens. I hope areas outside of canal park will see more funding.

I don’t see how the city cutting down on funding of the Zoo is putting tourists ahead of its own citizens. More “tourists” go to the zoo than locals.
Also, I would like to point out that Canal Park has been funded mostly by the Palucci’s, not the city. The Palucci’s own most of the buildings, they paid for much of the conversion from a warehouse district to the tourist trap it is now.
Besides, even if that was the case, why wouldn’t we invest more in what brings more money to our area? Our citizens rely on tourists, we are a tourist town.

The original and new arena, auditorium, pioneer hall, parking ramps,
convention center, harbor side convention center addition, lakewalk, aquarium, freeway extension, skywalk extension, brick sidewalks, fountains, public art…including fancy manhole covers…..all paid for by public funds. All Paulucci did was make money off our improvements. And if the tourists bring in so much money than why is Duluth so broke?

A lot of canal park especially the clock tower which haven’t work in a very long time were paid for out of city employee health fund I believe it was $800000 and I think it was under Fedo
