Topics: “Duluth Tourism Numbers Remain Strong” & “Wisconsin Woodchuck Salvages Globe Elevator”

Description: Despite a summer flood and the slow national economy, Duluth’s tourism numbers held up well in 2012. Tourism officials’ outlook for 2013 is looking positive.

And a project to salvage the old-growth wood in Superior’s 125-year Globe Grain Elevator is garnering national exposure on the reality show “Ax Men”. But the slow housing market is threatening continuing salvage operations.

Guests: Terry Mattson, “Visit Duluth”; Karen Pionk, Duluth Sheraton Hotel; Judy Peres, Wisconsin Woodchuck
