DULUTH — Seasonal weather experts at the National Climate Prediction Center on Thursday, Sept. 21, forecast a warmer-than-average start to the coming winter but said a developing La Nina cooling of the Pacific could bring colder weather here early in 2018. The meteorologists said current trends show the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes, eastern states and the southwest U.S. have a better-than-average chance of seeing above-normal temperatures from October through December. No portion of the U.S. is expected to see colder-than-normal temperatures through December.
DULUTH, Minn.—Mining companies are expanding their search for copper, gold and other minerals across northern Minnesota, with a state Department of Natural Resources auction earlier in June attracting bidders for mining exploration in Beltrami, Lake of the Woods, Koochiching and Itasca counties. Some of the sites are distant from the state's traditional mining region, although bids were submitted for St. Louis County, too. Five companies bid for the exploration rights for 284 parcels under 112,585 of the 195,324 acres offered by the DNR.
DULUTH — An effort by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to relax standards for drainage ditches that aren't public waterways has also led to miles of rivers and creeks losing their status as public waters. That was the claim made Friday by the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy, which has filed an appeal with the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
DULUTH, Minn. — Republican congressional candidate Stewart Mills on Friday changed his mind and withdrew a request for a recount in his close race against incumbent Rep. Rick Nolan. Nolan, DFL-Crosby, defeated Mills in the Nov. 8 election by 2,009 votes among the nearly 357,000 cast across Minnesota's 8th District — a 0.56 percent margin of victory. Mills earlier in the week said he would pay for a recount, saying it was unusual that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had won several precincts that Mills had lost.
