  • Grant Elementary School, 1027 N. Eighth Ave. E. in Duluth, reopened to students yesterday after completion of a major remodeling project. The building was 64 years old last spring when the Duluth School Board began a $1.4 million facelift.
  • An estimated 50 additional acres of Chequamegon National Forest land will be cleared for the Navy's Project ELF submarine communications center at Clam Lake. The additional land is needed because the center is now considered a permanent installation and not a test site.
