It will cost the City of Two Harbors over a quarter million dollars to get utilities to a new business on County Road 26 in Two Harbors. The bike rental/retail shop and coffee shop, which is being developed by Granite Gear co-founder Dan Cruikshank, has been months in the making. Cruikshank is the first to bite on plots of land the city owns on County Road 26, just north of Super One and Shopko. Now, the city has to get utility lines out to the property. A consultant from LHB, an engineering, architecture and planning firm in Duluth, said the project will cost about $317,000.

Lois Johnson poses with the cake before her retirement party on Aug. 13. She worked on and off at the Two Harbors Public Library for 65 years before retiring this month. Submitted photo. In 1949, Lois Johnson was a sophomore at Two Harbors High School with an after-school job. She made $0.50 an hour working at the library in town. Johnson, now 80, spent many of the 65 years since then volunteering at the library, with some gaps when she had a full-time job and then was raising her son. Even when not working there, she was always a voracious reader and regular patron of the library.
From Deane Morrison University of Minnesota A terrific harvest moon and a meeting of celestial rivals are among the delights in store for us this September. On the other hand, Venus gets lost in the sun's foreglow as it heads behind the sun. Our sister planet falls away, leaving Jupiter as the sole bright morning planet. Climbing higher every day, Jupiter is well up in the east by dawn and ends the month rising four hours ahead of the sun. On moonless mornings, look above Jupiter for the faint, lovely Beehive star cluster; binoculars will help.

The Two Harbors City Council voted to move forward with a proposed sales tax increase at a special meeting Monday night. The council's action will put the question of whether to impose a 0.5 percent tax increase on the ballot this fall. The revenues would help pay for water and sewer updates in the city. If the voters say yes to the increase, the Minnesota State Legislature has to approve it, too. It could go into effect August 2015 at the earliest.
