Topics: “Superior Refinery Fire” & “Minnesota Road Construction Projects” & “Outdoors Writer Sam Cook Retires”

Description: A dangerous fire at the Husky Refinery in Superior forced the evacuation of thousands of Superior residents. Almanac North interviewed officials about the incident, the potential danger to residents, and what happens next.

Don’t look now, but orange cones popping up around the region signals the start of road construction season. We talked with a MNDOT official about the major projects scheduled in our region.

And beloved Duluth News Tribune outdoors reporter Sam Cook is stepping down after 38-years at the newspaper.
