Reporter Maria Lockwood has a story about a graduate of Douglas County’s Remedy Court.

Jonathan Crabtree, 41, is the program’s most recent honoree.

Hudson Bonneville, three, and his sister Harper Bonneville, four, dig a path by way of sand for a rubber duck to travel down at the Lake Superior National Estuarine Investigation Reserve table through science evening at 4 Corners Elementary College on Tuesday, May perhaps 23. When they tilted the table and poured water on it, the duck created it to the bottom.
