Lt. Governor Tina Smith says thriving economy and "fiscal discipline" responsible for budget surplus
Minnesota Lt. Governor Tina Smith is in Duluth today, talking economic development with business leaders. But she took some time to talk with KUMD's Maija Jenson about the budget surplus and the Governor's proposals with regard to higher education.
Historically, the incidence of house fires is declining, so Captain Aaron Bujold of the Duluth Fire Department calls the recent spate of them an "anomaly." In the eight Northland fires since the beginning of the month, two people have been injured and four have died, including an as-yet unidentified man in a Lakeside neighborhood fire last night.
