Border News Roundup: Mining Politics in NE Minnesota

Jun 13, 2020

On the Friday Morning Show, Heidi talks with Marshall Helmberger the editor of the Timberjay Newspaper.  This week they talk about mining politics, as the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board refused to fund a water project on the Fond du Lac reservation because of the tribal government’s opposition to mining pollution.  Marshall also tells us about the protest in Ely, the moderate drought conditions in NE Minnesota and the opening of the Vince Shute bear sanctuary near Orr.
