Welcome to iBlog! My name is Isaiah Keating. My family and I live on Pokegama Lake just south of Grand Rapids, Minnesota in Harris Township.

After graduating high school in Grand Rapids, I earned my AAS degree in law enforcement from Hibbing Community and Technical College. I served as a Peace officer for twenty-four years, twenty of which for the City of Canby as Chief of Police.

During my employment with the City of Canby, I earned my Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts (Phi Theta Kappa) from Minnesota West Community College. I then attended Dakota State University's computer science program. While attending DSU, I completed the Computer Science I & II courses.

After moving back to Grand Rapids, I applied for, and was accepted as a member of the Itasca County Sheriff’s Department Volunteer Dive Team in 2021. In 2023, I was hired as a seasonal Park Ranger for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Pokegama Dam.) After finishing the summer with the Corps, I was hired by Itasca County School District 318 as a bus driver. Currently, I am planning on alternating between being a bus driver during the school year and working as a park ranger during the summer.
