  • Gilman Veith will return to his job as director of the Environmental Protection Agency's Duluth water quality laboratory tomorrow, nearly a year after he was fired for alleged mismanagement. An arbitration panel in February found the agency couldn't support its allegations.
  • Duluthian Will Sjoblom leaves tomorrow to travel to El Salvador with 13 other Minnesotans to take an 11-day job monitoring an election. For Sjoblom, the trip is an attempt to assure a fair election in a nation that has captured his interest.
