Additional workshops include Starting Your Own Business and Landing the Perfect Job.  All events are free of charge and will be held at Cook County Higher Education’s North Shore Campus in Grand Marais:

Painter wanted

I am in need of a person to paint the peaks of my house. Someone with their own scaffolding or experience on a very tall ladder. Not just a daredevil. Small job. Lower half already finished.


Give me a call. The paint will be in by Thursday.
