News Tribune, Oct. 12, 1972 A federal team assigned to find ways to beef up the Duluth-Superior economy began a three-day visit to the area yesterday. The group was sent because of the negative impact to local industry caused by Duluth Air Base cutbacks. Proctor voters yesterday turned down a $1.875 million school bond issue by a vote of 1,289 to 888. The issue — to finance additions to the junior and senior high school buildings — was sought to alleviate crowded conditions and eliminate split scheduling.
News Tribune, Oct. 12, 1992 The new Fond du Lac Community College building in Cloquet will be dedicated in a public ceremony tomorrow. Established in 1987 with 82 students, the college originally held classes in five renovated rooms at the old Garfield Elementary School in Cloquet. The Superior City Council tomorrow will begin reviewing a preliminary budget that would raise city property taxes almost 25 percent next year. That means the owner of a $50,000 home would pay an additional $140 in property taxes.
