Every week, our resident Phenologist John Latimer gathers his phenological data and reports his findings in the Tuesday morning Phenology Report.  As always, we love to hear what our listeners are noticing out in nature, too.  Give us a call at 218.999.9876 and let us know what is happening around your place.  You can also send an email directly to John.  Either way, we want to hear from you!

Every week we hear from school kids as they call or email us with their nature observations. We received 14 reports this week!   We're thrilled so many students are jazzed about the natural world.  Keep it up, kids!   

Bryan Morcom

Folks in Tower Minnesota are still talking about the great food at a “pop-up” held by Chef Bryan Morcom a few weeks ago at the Black Bear Café. Even though the pop-up featured Indian food, local ingredients are a big part of Bryan’s approach to cooking. 


Our series on the rapid growth of solar power in Minnesota continues this morning with a look at solar opportunities for people in the Bemidji area.


During the first week of October Lakeland PBS hosted a series of debates with candidates running for the MN House of Representatives.  Representative Sandy Layman is the Republican candidate  for House District 5b and her DFL opponent is Pat Medure. Our thanks to Dennis Weimann and Bill Sanford from Lakeland PBS for including us in their debates.

Each week John and Heidi pull up a chair to one of our member’s kitchen tables and get to know them a little bit better. This week they had to bring their chairs a long way, across the pond, as they say, to join Jesse Davis in his foreign breakfast.

When someone says they have created something new out of their past experiences, it can seem a little...fluffy. In his poem, Brick Tender, Larry Gavin brings that equation back to earth.

Gabriel Douglas, founding member of The 4onthefloor, stopped by the KBXE studios recently to talk about life in the band--and at the cabin on vacation. Hear the whole conversation here.

Tune in Friday's at 2:00 and 10:00 for great Minnesota music on Centerstage Minnesota.
