The old church building has sat there for years, mold forming inside as its structure became increasingly unsound. But expect things to move rapidly, now that the Duluth City Council has approved demolishing the building at 5907 Grand Ave., kitty korner from the West Duluth branch of the Duluth Public Library and within a block of where Interstate 35 crosses over Grand.
A color dash whose location in a cemetery caused a kerfuffle will be resurrected elsewhere, but without its original beneficiary. The UV Splash 5K fun run/walk that was to have taken place on Sept. 10 at Sunrise Memorial Park in Hermantown will be relocated to Barker's Island in Superior in October, said Hamid Torabpour, co-founder of Owatonna, Minn.-based Color Dash, the event's operator. But Circle of Hope, a local nonprofit that supports individuals diagnosed with breast cancer, won't be part of it, said Peggy Anderson, the charity's founder.
Since 5-year-old Matthew Nicholls was diagnosed with a tree-nut allergy at age 2, his mom and dad have spent more than $1,000 on EpiPens that have never been used — but have to be kept on hand in case Matthew has a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. "I would so much rather be putting the money into a college fund!" wrote Matthew's mother, Katie Nicholls, in an email from the home in Lafayette, La., to which the family moved from Duluth last year.

Detractors say a color dash in a cemetery strikes them as off-color. But to Bart Porter, the planned UV Splash 5K fun run/walk at the Sunrise Memorial Park in Hermantown owned by his family is life-affirming. "Cemeteries aren't doom and gloom," Porter said. "I have people running here every day." The late-night event, slated to begin at 9 p.m. Sept. 10, is a benefit for Circle of Hope, a local nonprofit that helps breast cancer patients with their expenses. It will be put on by Owatonna, Minn.-based Color Dash.

Nearly one out of five patients in mental health units at Minnesota hospitals could be better served elsewhere. So says a study released Thursday by the Minnesota Hospital Association. The finding is significant at a time when the state's hospitals are overrun with mental health and behavioral health patients. "We've seen a mental health and behavioral health crisis building over the last decade or more with a shortage of beds," said Dr. Gary Peterson, chief medical officer at St. Luke's hospital in Duluth. "We've seen this coming for quite a while."

After well over a century as a dry pocket within Duluth, the Lakeside neighborhood came a step closer to an establishment with beer and wine sales on Monday — in action that took less than 10 minutes and with just 13 people in attendance. Four of those were members of the city's Alcohol, Gambling and Tobacco Commission, who with barely a question unanimously recommended approval of wine and 3.2 percent malt liquor licenses for Amity Coffee, 4429 E. Superior St. Two of the board's six members were absent.
