Taking time to contemplate what is happening in nature is one of the many aspects of Northern Community Radio that sets us apart from any other radio station.  Each day we bring you a phenology note where our resident phenologist John Latimer shares a note from his journals of more than 35 years of climate and nature data collection.  Each Tuesday we dig even deeper with the full Phenology Report where John assesses his years of notes and considers how those notes measure up to what's happening in nature today. This week, among other things, John discusses the differences between the northern shrike and the gray jay! Take a listen for the full report!

Tuesdays are special at Northern Community Radio and when school is in session, we are even more jazzed than normal because in addition to hearing from our listeners, young phenologists across Minnesota call in their classroom phenology reports.  This week we heard from Ely, Blackberry, Hill City, Two Harbors, Weaver Lake and Rockford.  Students reported crane flies, snow shoe hares, wolf tracks, a wolf kill and even 10 inches of snow in Ely!   Listen to to the links for the full experience!

When you tune into KAXE/KBXE you hear the voices and the stories of our communities in northern Minnesota.  Sometimes those stories aren't easy to tell, but that doesn't mean we should tell them.

We worked with Advocates for Family Peace in the past to hear the real stories of people who have lived with domestic violence, people who have had the strength to tell their stories  so that others will understand. 

If you are in a crisis situation call 1-800-909-8336. 

...Emelie didn't think about running for office until someone said to her, "you should run for office.  You're very passionate about these issues."...she's got a very good voice around equity. And people saw that value that she could bring to the table and so they encouraged her to run…. The same was true of Faith with her path.  And I would also say that is true of me that people encouraged… and said, “ You need to run for mayor we want you to run for mayor.” – Bemidji Mayor Rita Albrecht on women’s paths to leadership positions.
