The first of 18 oak trees was planted in the park along Oakes Avenue in Superior on Wednesday in honor of Mike Grigoni, who died on the job at the Androy Hotel. "He was the little fellow that ran the desk," Superior City Council President Dan Olson said. "He was a little spitfire in his work. You couldn't get in the bathrooms if he had just put that cone out, no matter what. I remember." This is the ninth year a tree has been planted in Superior for Workers Memorial Day.
