Ways to Connect

I mean, that's the goal...You want the next generation to improve and do better. So for the future, I see more Ojibwe language being spoken, I see more people practicing our ceremonies, I see our people practicing more physical health and diet health, I see us working together diligently and while not only improving our Red Lake community, but improving our northern Minnesota community because Red Lake has always been a valuable asset to this region of Minnesota.

- Thomas Barrett, Executive Director of Red Lake Boys and Girls Club. 

Area voices tell us the arts, culture and history stories of northern Minnesota, and this past week we have been living a flashpoint moment in American history. George Floyd, also known as Big Floyd, was a father, a brother, a partner, and a friend to many.  According to those closest to him, he was passionate about keeping the peace. His killing on the street at the corner of 38th and Chicago Ave in Minneapolis blew the lid off of racial tension in our communities, our state, our country.

Writing can be very solitary. Most often it's a very solitary endeavor and a writing conference can give you community and a sense of being in a community, being among people who are endeavoring on the same path as you are... you get those nuts and bolts, craft things, those little things you didn't understand about the craft of writing... and then there's that organism that is the workshop and then there's the greater organism of the conference...you learn things with everyone. - Sean Hill, Poet and MN Northwoods Writers Conference Director

Experienced nurses that are able to deal with COVID, we're a finite resource and we're not to be taken lightly...This whole concept of any nurse being disciplined for merely fighting for the safety of their patients and themselves is unacceptable. - Mary Turner, President, MN Nurses Association

Nurses from Bemidji, Bagley and Thief River Falls joined forces (with safe social distancing of course) to express concern about working conditions yesterday. 

2020 is an extraordinary year, especially for local high school seniors.  They are experiencing something no one has gone through before:  celebrating and honoring their education in a world of social distancing.  Do you know a graduating senior?  We'd love to talk with them!  Email us. 

Britta Aas graduates from Bemidji High School this weekend.   She spoke on the morning show about how Covid has affected her senior year and the lessons she's gleaned during these times.
