In our phenology talkback segment we share comments related to the outdoors that have come our way over the course of the week.   It's a fantastic time of the year to be outside relishing in all the glory nature has to offer. Egrets, hummingbirds, warblers, and advice on hazelnut picking are all included in this week's talkback segment.

Meadow Kaufield of Grand Rapids floated by the KAXE studios just in time to share her breakfast with John and Heidi on The Friday Morning Show. Before she left she had some homemade oatmeal with old-fashioned oats heated up and served with salted butter, maple syrup and a little milk. Besides breakfast, Meadow described her upcoming Extreme Huntress competition.

To traverse a bog, one needs some background information. Puposky poet, Cate Belleveau fills us in.


We continued our MN Governor Candidate conversations today - this time DFLer Lori Swanson - she is currently MN's Attorney General and she's chosed District 8 Congressman Rick Nolan as her running mate.

We talked with Phil Hermel last Monday about his quest to raise money for cancer support in Itasca County.  He aimed high and hoped to raise $15,000.  He knew he would lose some toenails, but he didn't expect to raise  over $34,000 to help families in need. 

Check out his article in Lake Time magazine, and listen to our conversation!
