Marshall Helmberger on Border News Roundup

Friday mornings Timberjay editor and publisher Marshall Helmberger joins Heidi Holtan for Border News Roundup. This week Heidi and Marshall have an in-depth discussion about the announcement by the Biden administration to protect the BWCA with a mineral withdrawal, what affect that would have on the Twin Metals copper-nickel mine, along with talk on the economic viability of the Twin Metals mine.

Marshall also informs us that the impact on the Ely School Districts decision to require face masks has led to an unprecedented plunge in school enrollment, and about the former Fortune Bay Resort Casino employee recently sentenced in charges for embezzlement.
