Even the Mayor of Thunder Bay reads "The Hillsider

Caption: Members of the Thunder Bay sister city delegation visited Duluth last week. Sharla Gardner, councilor of Duluth's Third District (which includes much of the catchment area of our story base) gave them a tour of City Hall. From left to right is Aldo Ruberto, Thunder Bay councilor at large, Her Worship Mayor Lynn Peterson, (a hidden person) and Sharla Gardner.

I took photos of them in the mayor's reception room and the council chambers. They had oodles of questions about the workings and the details of our city government. It was fun to visit with them. Ruberto is also a writer and invited me to come up for their writers' conference in August:
Here is the information on that conference:
