  • Two more Iron Range taconite plants — including U.S. Steel's Minntac plant in Mountain Iron — extended planned shutdowns yesterday. The extensions were more bad news for an already beleaguered Iron Range, where more than 10,000 of the approximately 14,000 steelworkers have been laid off.
  • The U.S. Coast Guard has authorized the return of the old diaphone foghorn to the Duluth ship canal, but its use will be limited. Plans call for the foghorn to sound a four-blast sequence once an hour between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.

  • The Duluth School Board's annual census of Duluth residents will begin next week. Because of a possible extension of the state's age limit for compulsory education, this year's census will include residents between the ages of one and 21.
  • Plans for an up-to-date building for Superior's City Market were submitted to city officials yesterday. The 10-stall structure, 72 feet by 24 feet, will be built on a concrete base on city land at Ogden Avenue and North 14th Street.
