From Mary Rosati Two Harbors Friends and neighbors, over the next couple of months I’ll be asking how the city is spending your money. Here are a few examples from 2013-14: -A lobbyist getting $11,000 a year to promote a safe harbor. -A portable stage costing $12,000. How...

Letter to the editor: Nolan is selling out our waters, and Metsa is backing him up
