Two more candidates have announced their plans to run for Superior mayor. South End Days organizer and city Plan Commissioner Kalee Hermanson and City Councilor Mike Herrick each announced their candidacy on Thursday. A lifelong Superior resident, Hermanson said she's willing to ask the tough questions and make the tough decisions needed to lead this city. "It's time to put what's best for this city first," she said. "Not maintaining the status quo."
The Superior Police Department wants to hear from you.

A ruling this week in Douglas County Circuit Court freed up more than $1 million set aside in trust following the 1992 benzene spill caused by a train derailment south of Superior. Ashland County Judge Robert Eaton, who heard the case, on Wednesday upheld a decision to deny a claim on the fund from former railroad bridge inspector Dale Bartz, who worked at the spill site. The money now will be split evenly between the University of Wisconsin-Superior Foundation, Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College Foundation and Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.
When asked what their top priority would be if elected, both candidates for Wisconsin's 7th Congressional District seat — incumbent Republican Sean Duffy and Democratic challenger Mary Hoeft — found it difficult to narrow their to-do lists. Hoeft, a Rice Lake educator, rattled off a number of high-priority items on her agenda during a recent phone interview. "Protecting Social Security, you bet," she said. "Living wage, absolutely." She'd like to make Affordable Care Act health care more affordable by introducing a single-payer system, too.
Dozens of Northland residents made a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion Tuesday at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. With markers and brightly colored paper, each crafted a sentence about what they intend to do to make a difference. "One sentence can affect somebody so hugely," said Fox 21 news anchor Dan Hanger. Participants were then photographed with their words. "It's the first step," said Gabriela "Gaby" Theis, interim multicultural affairs coordinator for the campus. "Take the picture and take the action."

Surrounded by bare steel wall frames, broken bits of drywall and noise, Victoria Main envisioned a space filled with art, music and applause. During a tour last month, she and architect Scott Georgeson walked through what will be Twin Ports Stage's new home at 1101 Tower Ave., painting a picture of what's to come with their words.
