Border News Roundup with Marshall Helmberger

On the Friday Morning Show Heidi Holtan talks with Marshall Helmberger editor and publisher of the Timberjay Newspaper. News from NE Minnesota this week includes the story of the regional Arrowhead Library System who may have their services disrupted by an ongoing labor dispute that could lead to a strike.

Marshall updates us on the copper-nickel scene and informs us that the Bureau of Land Management has issued a denial of a mineral lease application for the creation of the Twin Metals mine.

We end with a sad story about a home that exploded on Lake Vermilion leaving one homeowner dead and another in critical condition. For more on these stories go to timberjay.com.
