St. Paul Winter Carnival has a new Klondike Kate


OAKDALE, Minn. (AP) -- The St. Paul Winter Carnival has a new ambassador of fun.

WCCO says Anita Mack was crowned Klondike Kate in Oakdale Wednesday night. Five contestants were judged on vocal ability, song, costume and audience reaction.

The original "Klondike Kate" earned her nickname during the Gold Rush of 1898, as the most famous dancehall girl of the North.

The St. Paul Winter Carnival starts Jan. 24.
