  1. Hello Tony: I’m a fan of your books. Yes! I own them all. However, I’m emailing you because I wrote a business non-fiction memoir book about my career at becoming the #1 most recognized names in prom dress designers and publisher of the national distributed ‘Prom Magazine’. However, I’m looking for someone to correct my grammar and possibly even tell me if it could sell, etc. I’m hoping you can give a fellow Duluthian some direction on who you use for these types of tips?

  2. Mr. Dierckins,
    I have a number of your books and enjoy them all. I just finished Naturally Brewed-Naturally Better. Duluth’s brewing history is fascinating. I do want to point out that, on P. 163, you misspelled my grandfather’s name. He was Octaaf Renier. It has happened to me all my life. Not a big deal, but thought you should know.
    I have an 8×10 of the People’s plane, as well as one or two of the taproom, which was quite interesting. Happy to share if you’d like.
    Lifelong Duluthian and West Ender,

    1. Mr. Renier,

      This website is not Tony Dierckins’ website, and he does not receive these comments. His website is Zenith City online. I do not have his email address. You can try calling the phone number listed in our directory, but I don’t know if it is current. Good luck!

  3. Just finished your book. Duluth An Urban Biography.
    I grew up in West Duluth (Spirit Valley never caught on)!
    1971 graduate of Duluth Denfeld. Enjoyed your book.
    I worked at Highway Host, which is now The Duluth Grill, I don’t remember it being Embers. How long was it Embers? Thanks for recording the very interesting history of Duluth. Both my parents grew up in Fond du Lac, which I feel is often overlooked in Duluth’s rich history.
    Thanks for what you do. Nancy Krieg
