Friday mornings we check in with Marshall Helmberger editor and publisher of the Timberjay newspaper in NE Minnesota.  This week Marshall tells us about the peak in Covid-19 in Ely, including an assisted living facility with four deaths appearing to be Covid related.  We hear news about a kidnapping in International Falls ending in Orr with the kidnapper ending his own life and we get news about St. Louis county teachers relaying the message that the in-class plus the distance learning is not feasible for them after only 2 weeks of school.  Marshall talks about the information from the SurveyUSA Poll’s with details on the presidential candidates in NE Minnesota and ends with an update on fall colors in the area.
