News Tribune, July 3, 1973 In an effort to curtail increasing vandalism, the Duluth Parks and Recreation Advisory Board began action yesterday to invoke a late-night curfew on the use of park properties. The board asked the city attorney to draft an ordinance instituting an 11 p.m. curfew. The handcuffs used in the Virginia Piper kidnapping last year probably were purchased at a Duluth sporting goods store. Norman Levine, president of Norm’s Reliable Jewelers and Sporting Goods, said yesterday he believes the handcuffs were purchased at his store.
News Tribune, July 3, 1993 Officials at the Superior Memorial Hospital and the Duluth-based Benedictine Health System announced yesterday they are working on an agreement to join forces. The 55-bed Superior Memorial has been looking for ways to ensure its survival for several years. Ken Thro, a former Twin Ports resident, has donated 10,000 old photographs of Great Lakes ships and maritime scenes from his private collection to the Canal Park Marine Museum. Thro’s collection includes about 500 photographs by Hugh McKenzie, an early Duluth photographer.
