A 29-year-old Colorado man dove from a popular cliff-diving spot in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness on Wednesday and never surfaced. Emergency crews from Lake and St. Louis counties found Chase Winkey on Thursday morning, 20 feet below the surface of Makwa Lake. His body was sent to the medical examiner in Hibbing for an autopsy. Lake County Sheriff Carey Johnson said Winkey was staying on nearby Little Saganaga Lake in a party of four people who were jumping off a cliff that is known for diving. The cliff is about 60 feet high and the water is deep.

Clearing skies meant sunshine and warmer weather in the Northland today - but they'll also lead to some chilly conditions tonight. The National Weather Service in Duluth has issued a frost advisory for the early morning hours Monday for northern parts of the Northland, including the Iron Range, International Falls and areas of the Arrowhead away from Lake Superior. Low temperatures in those areas may fall into the lower to middle 30s early Monday morning, causing areas of frost that could damage sensitive plants.
The controversial sale of a parcel of land along Lake Superior's North Shore has netted $1.2 million for the state's school trust fund. An Eden Prairie couple outbid the Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center in a public auction held Wednesday for the 65-acre parcel, about 10 miles north of Silver Bay. Buyer Robert Schachter said he and his wife, Karen Rylander, have no plans to develop the property. "The person who showed us the property thought it should be left untouched," Schachter said.
