Let's Visit Bagley: A conversation with Sid & Nathan Michael

Sid and Nathan Michael

“We’re kind of a novel town.  We’re an older town…it was a logging town in the old days…We’re a fortunate town.  We’ve got two lumber yards, three places for people to go for physical therapy, we’ve got two clinics and still have the hospital…we’re really a fortunate town.”  – Sid Michael

Let's Visit allows Northern Community Radio to reach out and learn a little more about one of the communities or areas in our listening region.  We recently connected with folkswho shared their thoughts on life in Bagley.  Sid Michael spent much of his youth in downtown Bagley.  His father owned and operated a local tavern next to which was the family home.  He's now the mayor of Bagley. Sid and his son Nathan stopped by the KBXE studio to talk about their hometown.  

Industrial changes, Lake Lomond, Bagley history and where you can play Bingo are just a few of the topics covered in this segment.
