On April 21, 1997, the Esko community was rocked when 12-year-old Kristin Burkholder was hit by a car on her way to track practice. Three days later she died. While one life was lost, another one was given.
The process of hiring Duluth's next police chief is underway, and many in the community have concerns about who will take on that role. In a letter to the city, some local activists made sure their voices are heard.
