The increase was for $12,475, for extra work demanded of the landscape architect, and the decrease was $60,899, gained when it was discovered not every playground needed a rubber material poured below the new engineered wood fiber mulch.
Cook County authorities reported Tuesday that a Nov. 5 fire that destroyed a home in Hovland likely was a case of arson. An investigation by the Cook County Sheriff’s Office and the Minnesota State Fire Marshal “confirmed that gasoline was used as an accelerant in the incendiary blaze” at 5774 Minnesota Highway 61. A neighbor reported the lakeside residence was burning at 2:48 a.m. Nov. 5; the house was engulfed in flame when first responders arrived on the scene. No one was home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.
For the 28th consecutive year, the Duluth Transit Authority is offering passengers free bus rides on Thanksgiving. The service is sponsored by the National Bank of Commerce and the College of St. Scholastica. The holiday service will also feature two special shuttle buses which will transport passengers directly to the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center (DECC) for its annual dinner. Passengers should look for “Turkey Bus 1” and “Turkey Bus 2” in the destination signs to distinguish the shuttle service from regular-route buses.
