Longtime columnist Jim Klobuchar, who wrote for the Star Tribune, is dead at the age of 93.  The father of U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar was said to have written over 84-hundred columns by the time he retired in the 1990s.  Senator Klobuchar said the man born in Ely died Wednesday.  He will be buried at Fort Snelling, and a public celebration will be held at a later date.  Anyone wishing to honor the late journalist can donate to the University of Minnesota’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
