Hibbing Struggles With How It Should Honor Bob Dylan
HIBBING (AP) - The city of Hibbing has long struggled with how it should honor its most famous son, Bob Dylan.
The city has a street sign honoring Dylan and a small exhibit in the public library, but little more than that.
Dylan's relationship with Hibbing has been complicated: Many didn't understand the artistic kid as he grew up - and after he left, they didn't realize how famous he'd become.
But as Dylan is awarded the Nobel Prize in literature Saturday, some residents think the city should do more.
Retired Hibbing teacher Craig Hattam gives tours of Hibbing to Dylan fans, often showing them Dylan's old house. He hopes it will someday become a museum.
Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Saturday as Bob Dylan Day in Minnesota.
