News Tribune, Dec. 6, 1973 Boise Cascade officials yesterday announced plans for a $33 million, five-year expansion of its paper and Insulite mills in International Falls. The expansion is in addition to a previously announced $30 million program for pollution-abatement equipment. A proposal to close Bryant Elementary School to help deal with the fuel crisis was presented to the Duluth School Board last night. Bryant, at 31st Avenue West and Third Street, has an enrollment of 188 children, including Head Start classes.
News Tribune, Dec. 6, 1993 The probe into this week’s crash of a Northwest Airlink plane near Hibbing is continuing, and the cause is still undetermined. An announcement may not be made until late fall 1994 when the transportation safety board considers the investigation’s findings. Duluth prosthetist-orthotist Dan Ramsey took his professional skills to Vietnam this fall as part of a team helping Vietnamese colleagues improve their ability to design and fit artificial limbs. Ramsey himself was injured as a Marine in Vietnam in 1968.
