NMU Board approves controversial student housing project

The hour allotted for public comment at NMU's Board of Trustees meeting Friday morning was filled with statements against the planned location for new student housing on campus.

If you're a third grader in Dickinson County, you now get to swim for free. With a $4,700 grant the Northern Lights YMCA in Iron Mountain received, every third grader in the county gets free swim lessons.

Dickinson County had been looking for tenants to fill the Northern Lights YMCA, but that search has now come to an end. The Dickinson County Healthcare System Diabetes Clinic will be renting a space in the YMCA.
