Bygones: In 1983, Duluth school district predicted large decline in enrollment

13 July 2023

News Tribune, July 13, 1983
Enrollment in Duluth public schools is expected to decline by about 10% over the next five years, Superintendent Richard Pearson said yesterday. Despite that decline, the district may avoid substantial new teacher layoffs because of the increasing retirement rate, he said. Duluth will be the second stop in the inaugural seven-day Tour of Minnesota bicycle race next month, completing the 104-mile segment from Mora to Duluth, on Aug. 10. Three riders from Duluth Dave Plotnicky, Scott Hanson, and Ken Johnson are expected to participate.

More than 1,266,000 tons of ore have been shipped from the Oliver Iron Mining properties near Eveleth since the opening of the navigation season. The shipments represent one of the largest periods of business in the history of the Oliver mines. The Duluth Boat Club Regatta rowing race will begin at 7 p.m. tonight in the Duluth harbor. Part of the purpose of the race is to select crews to represent the Duluth Boat Club at the Northwestern-International Regatta and the National Regatta.]]>
