Five years after Investors Real Estate Trust began its move out of Duluth's medical property market, two Duluth properties are among the last to be sold. IRET sold the two Duluth properties to Twin Cities-based HRSE-MN in December. According to Duluth property transaction records, they are: • 4702 Grand Ave., which includes the St. Luke's Denfeld Medical Clinic, for $4 million. • 1001 E. Superior St., which includes the St. Luke's Lakeview Building, for $22.1 million. St. Luke's leases the buildings from the property owner.
Vidar Vikre reciprocated his mother's smile as she leaned her face close to his. Emily Vikre sat on the couch to tuck her 4-month-old son's arms and legs into his blue snowsuit, and then placed him in her mother's arms.

Al and Jenny Lopez dated for three months before they decided to tie the knot on Valentine's Day last year. "When you're 80 years old, why wait? You might wait too long and then you're sorry," Jenny said. But whether they really dated before getting married seems to still be up for debate. "Did we date?" Al joked. Jenny responded, "When you came and knocked on the door after supper, that was a date."

Inside the space that once housed the Original Coney Island on East Superior Street, a server scooped and ate the last of the roasted cauliflower off her plate before Nyanyika Banda brought plates of salad and bowls of ramen out of the kitchen on Sunday afternoon. The half-dozen staff seated at the bar on Sunday were training ahead of the Wednesday opening of Banda's new restaurant, Martha's Daughter, at 107 E. Superior St. Between bites of food, the staff took notes on the taste and list of ingredients in each dish.
Military medics now have a path to more quickly become civilian nurses in Minnesota with a program that takes advantage of their experience. Lake Superior College's new seven-month program provides the education needed for current and veteran military medics to work as civilian licensed practical nurses in Minnesota.

A national anti-censorship group is urging the Duluth school district to reconsider its decision to remove "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" from its curriculum. As reported by the News Tribune earlier this week, the district decided to remove the books — which contain racial slurs — from the curriculum "to protect the dignity of our students" and not require them to read books that marginalize them, according to Michael Cary, the district's director of curriculum and instruction.
