It wasn't a good welcome to Duluth, Marisol Sanchez said. The 18-year-old and her fiance drove here from California, she said, arriving in Duluth with no money left. About a month and a half ago they were in their car, spending the night outside of Wade Stadium, when police arrived. "They circled around us," she said. "And instead of telling us what we could do, what kind of homeless shelters we could go to, they told us to go to Motel 6 when we didn't even have money. ... The police officers were just being really rude."
Final approval for a legislative fix to help Minnesotans with estate claims against them because they were on Medical Assistance has gone into overtime. "I'm not hitting the panic button just yet," said state Sen. Tony Lourey, DFL-Kerrick, a primary architect of legislation passed in the final minutes of this year's session to end the state's authority to enter claims against the estates of Minnesotans aged 55-64 who receive Medical Assistance. But the federal agency with ultimate authority is delaying action until getting more information from the state.
A class of Hermantown Middle School eighth-graders walked into St. Luke's hospital's Building A on Tuesday morning and left behind a plastic box filled with 70 colorful, doll-sized pillows.

An uptick of opioid drug overdoses that hit the Duluth area in recent days hasn't spared Douglas County, officials there say. In Superior, a suspected heroin overdose is listed as the probable cause of one death that occurred last week. Paul Stein, Douglas County deputy medical examiner, said he was called early on Friday morning to the Billings Park neighborhood, where a 25-year-old man had been discovered dead by his family.
An uptick in opioid drug overdoses in Duluth over the weekend means "there is probably a new shipment in town," a local emergency medicine physician said. "A patient told me he's not a new user of heroin," said Dr. Gary Foley, of the Essentia Health-St. Mary's Medical Center emergency department. "He thought he shot up with a relatively small amount, and he collapsed."
