DULUTH — Make Minnesota Red — that was the theme of this weekend's Minnesota GOP State Convention in Duluth.

DULUTH — The logging industry in Minnesota has seen a lot of changes over the past year that could negatively affect it in a big way. Blandin Paper Co. shut down its No. 5 machine and the Minnesota Legislature passed legislation last year allowing Xcel Energy to negotiate a shutdown of three renewable energy plants. But even with all of the changes and uncertainty in the industry, Josh Hull, owner of Hull Forest Products, said he's still in it for the long haul.
Sen. Tina Smith met with retired Teamsters on Saturday, Jan. 6, to talk about a proposed solution to the problems facing their pensions.
