Let's Visit

Let's Visit is Northern Community Radio way of sharing various communities and places in our broadcast region with our listeners.  This past month, Let's Visit focused on Remer, MN.  Remer is more than a palindrome.  It's a quaint, small town with a penchant for Bigfoot that serves as many students in the school district as there is population in the community itself.  Northland Community Schools serves children from Outing, Boy River, Longville, and Federal Dam.

Barb Grove is known around the Crosby, MN area as Mama Cuyuna.  Her tenacious work to repurpose Crosby into a recreation destination after mine companies left town decades ago earned her the unique and fitting moniker.  Barb's unwavering dedication along with the help and passion of thousands of other people who understood the value in this endeavor has paid off. Today, Crosby is thriving.  New stores, restaurants, and outfitters have moved into the area as have people from outside the region - all as a result Crosby becoming a mountain biking destination!  

Northern Community Radio's Let's Visit features one area or community each month.  We kicked off the series this summer by visiting Crosby, MN.   Crosby has become a mountain biking destination in recent years and in this segment, host Katie Carter climbs on a mountain bike and takes to the trails with her guide Teri Fabien.

Northern Community Radio launched a new program called Let's Visit this summer.  Each month we focus on one community or area in northern Minnesota.  Our first visit had us traveling to Crosby, MN.  It did not disappoint and we are definitely going back!  Crosby was at a crossroads after the mining industry pulled out of the area nearly 30 years ago.  Since that time the community has re-established itself as a recreation destination and the shift has had a direct, positive impact on economy, livability and community growth.  In this segment of Let's Visit, we connect with Laura Huisinga w
