Deer Hunting continues through the week in northern Minnesota - did you get yer deer yet? 

We talked with local hunter Heather Hansen about her traditions and how she gets ready for the season. 

As a kid, Erin Haefele spent every summer in Walker, MN.  She loved it.  And as she started a family of her own, she realized she wanted her own children, too,  to experience Walker and all it has to offer. So she did what many a mom with a mission does...she planned for and embarked on said mission.  

Remembering Milt Lee

Nov 11, 2019

Today we remembered KAXE/KBXE contributing producer Milt Lee who died last week. Michael Goldberg gives his thoughts and we hear  a portion of the last of the Call of The Wild series.  Our condolences to his wife Jamie Lee and family.

Today we featured 3 Strong Women on KAXE/KBXE - Teresa Kittridge from 100 Rural Women and Erica Bjelland and Rachel Juritsch from RREAL

They told us about the creating of a new mentorship program.  Who mentored you?  What did it add to your life - email us your stories!

Today we hear the story of the Hummingbird and the Great Fire from our puppet friends Natasha and Nana Boozhoo.  Michael Lyons is the creator of Boozhoo Nana Boozhoo and a musican, cartoonist and writer. 

This month our conversation has been about the concepts in Chuck Marohn's new book Strong Towns - A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity.  In this podcast only edition our commentators Chuck Marohn and Aaron Brown go a little deeper yet.

Marshall from the Timberjay newspaper fills us in this Friday on a big turnout in Orr about community concerns over a recent crime spree in the region.  Orr and St. Louis County residents are organizing and communicating with St. Louis County police about how to make their area safer.  We also hear of a proposal to merge the 5 community colleges in northern Minnesota and (of course) deer hunting opener!

What do buildings mean to a town?  What does the current model of large parking lots, big box stores, few trees and large signs mean to the residents of a town?

Aaron Brown and Chuck Marohn continue the Strong Towns - the book - conversation here.  What makes your town special?  How do we plan growth in small towns now compared to before WWII?  Do things that seem small - sidewalks, trees, parks matter to where we live?

We were honored to speak with bestselling and award winning Tim O'Brien this morning. 

Tim O’Brien’s novels include The Things They Carried, If I Die in a Combat Zone, In the Lake of the Woods, among others.

 

 He won the National Book Award and in 2013 he was awarded the Pritzker Military Library Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing.

The Walt Disney Company's streaming service, Disney Plus, debuted today. Its highest profile original series is a drama set in the "Star Wars" universe called "The Mandalorian." NPR TV critic Eric Deggans says the first episode has both a nostalgia and new storytelling that fans want.

ERIC DEGGANS, BYLINE: "The Mandalorian" is your typical, tight-lipped bounty hunter; so tightlipped, in fact, when a quarry offers him money to let him go, he's got one chilling response.

Record-breaking cold and snowfall is numbing many parts of the U.S. from the Great Plains to the East Coast and north through New England. By Wednesday the cold snap is expected to spread farther south to the upper Texas coast in what is being described as an "arctic outbreak" by the National Weather Service.

The dead-of-winter temperatures come with roughly five weeks of fall remaining on the calendar.
