News Tribune, Aug. 14, 1993 Iron Range politicians and UMD officials announced yesterday they have landed nearly $3.4 million in public money to boost research into improving the quality and value of taconite. Much of the money will be used to study how to reduce the amount of silica in taconite. Duluth dropped from 14th in 1992 to 107th this year in Money magazine’s ranking of most livable cities, scoring low in new business potential, job growth and transportation. Rochester, Minn., was named the most livable city in America.
