The Lake County Board of Commissioners met on Tuesday with a familiar face returning after a three-month hiatus.

With one new lung, he reported that he is doing much better and his lung capacity is almost back to normal.
During a visit to the Arrowhead that included stops at local cafes on the North Shore, U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan took a ride around town with Two Harbors Mayor Randy Bolen and later met with a group of city and county officials, law enforcement, representatives of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and former Mayor Dave Battaglia in an informal gathering at City Hall.
Congressman Rick Nolan brought his constituent stump speech to Two Harbors last week, telling Lake Countians on Friday about the changes he’s seen in Washington after a 30-year absence and also addressing more parochial concerns.

All councilors, Mayor Joanne Johnson, City Administrator Lana Fralich and City Attorney Pete Morris were present for the meeting.
On Monday, March 11, the Two Harbors City Council voted to move forward with the demolition of “the roundhouse” in Two Harbors—a 125-year-old building located along the waterfront on 22 acres of prime city-owned real estate.
