State gets deed to Vermilion parkland
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota's newest park is a reality, and visitors may be able to make limited use of it later this year.
Gov. Tim Pawlenty signed an agreement this morning to pay U.S. Steel $18 million for 3,000 acres along Lake Vermilion in northeastern Minnesota. Joining Pawlenty at the signing was Vice President John Goodish of U.S. Steel, who handed over the deed to the land.
