Study will help find out how many County jobs absconded to Duluth

How many St. Louis County jobs have been relocated to Duluth? How are our tax dollars being appropriated regionally? If a renewed push to answer these two questions comes to fruition, then it will be worth all the fighting to find out the truth.
Now joined by elected officials across the Iron Range, St. Louis County commissioner Tom Rukavina is no longer standing alone. He’s joined by fellow commissioner Mike Jugovich, and a unanimous vote by the 18-member elected officials on the Range Association of Municipalities and Schools.
We’re surprised St. Louis County commissioner Keith Nelson of Virginia has continued to throw up road blocks on this study and that he continues to side with the Duluth commissioners. Maybe he’s afraid of what the truth will reveal.
Ely and Virginia are perfect examples of how the county has been consolidating jobs in Duluth, taking families and school kids out of communities in the north half of the county.

The ultimate family heirloom

According to the Zillow.com website, nearly 14 million households, say the reason they’re not planning to move ever is because they plan to pass down their home to a family member.
Whereas in the past, it might be some fond memento passed down as an heirloom, increasingly now it is the family home.
I understand. Although the Antiques Roadshow is still one of my favorite television programs, it is easy to see that values of antiques have changed dramatically from 15-20 years ago.
Even now, when an appraiser of some object says it has a value in the thousands, it would be difficult to sell it that high in the Midwest, even in area auction houses or on eBay. Those big bucks must come from appraiser connections out East if at all.
The problem is: old things just aren’t valued currently even though they may be better crafted, sturdier and more attractive than contemporary objects.

Joking his way to retirement - Roland Fowler

TELLING JOKES - Roland Fowler stopped in the Echo office Thursday and announced he would be stepping down as the official weather data recorder for Embarrass after 35 years. Roland or Charlie as he’s also known, recorded an unofficial low temperature on February 2, 1996 of -64°F. Fowler, 85, served 40 years on the Embarrass Fair Board, and was out selling ads in Ely for the Fair Book. He will continued to serve on the Embarrass-Vermillion Federal Credit Union Board. If you run into him, he’ll probably tell you a good Ole and Lena joke. And then maybe a couple more, with a smile and a hearty laugh. That's Ely Echo general manager Nick Wognum enjoying the laughs.
