  • State officials yesterday opened 499 bids for copper-nickel leases, the start of a process that could result in a $10 million exploration boom in northern Minnesota. The bids will be reviewed by the Department of Natural Resources and awarded on Dec. 14.
  • Duluth city councilors yesterday tabled an ordinance to license massage parlors, saunas, steam parlors, masseurs and masseuses. The ordinance was tabled so city attorneys can hammer out an amendment that excludes saunas and steam parlors where massages are not performed.
