July 28th begins Ely's Annual Blueberry Festival

Each week Marshall Helmberger fills us in on the news from NE Minnesota.  This week he filled us in on a new study commissioned by the Save the Boundary Waters campaign.  It takes a look at the economic costs of copper nickel mining. There is a public meeting on Tuesday July 25th at the Virginia High School from 5-7pm.  

Marshall also talked about a possible conflict of interest by St. Louis County commissioner Keith Nelson about a Lake Vermilion homeowner's lack of permitting for a change in lakeshore.  And Marshall fills us in on the possible economic impact for the town of Crane Lake if they lose the customs office located there since the 1950s.
