Topics: "Duluth School Superintendent Retires" & "Summer Tourism Outlook"

Description:  Retiring Duluth School Superintendent Keith Dixon has guided the Public school system through turbulent financial times, and a controversial building plan that has completely made-over the district’s facilities.  Dr. Dixon talks about his career, and his legacy in Duluth.

Lower gas prices may spur tourism in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, but a state government shutdown in the Gopher State could put a chilling effect on summer camping plans.  Local tourism officials have the outlook for the region’s top attractions.

Guests: Keith Dixon, Retired Duluth School Superintendent; Tim Campbell, Northeast Region manager, Explore Minnesota Tourism; Gene Shaw, Public Relations manager, Visit Duluth; Sarah Erickson, Education Director, Great Lakes Aquarium
