Border News: St. Louis County Schools, EPA Documents Lost, the Pike River Hatchery and a TURKEY!

THE LATEST FROM THE TIMBERJAY Radinovich Announces Resignation from the IRRR.

This week Marshall Helmberger from the Timberjaynewspaper keeps us up to date on the St. Louis Schoolbuilding issues and the contractors who are coming to the table to help fix the many problems at Southridge and Northwoods schools.  So far Kraus-Anderson and ARI have come forward, but Johnson Controls has not. 

We also hear about problems that some congressional committees are having to get information and documents having to do with Polymet and the Twin Metals project.  Rep. Betty McCollum is trying to get to the bottom of some EPA reports that have to do with the mineral leases. 

The Pike River Hatchery is filled with walleye and Marshall found a TURKEY! in his yard for the first time!
