Border News Roundup: News from Orr and Snowshoe Hare

M. Helmberger

Marshall Helmberger with Border News Roundup

On the Friday Morning Show, Heidi talks with Marshall Helmberger the editor of the Timberjay Newspaper. Orr is in the news this week with two stories from the Timberjay. Pelican Bay Foods in Orr was in the news last Friday after a logging truck wiped out a line of eight gas pumps, the incident was classified as an accident and no charges were filed against the driver. Also reported, the owner of the T. Pattenn Café in Orr is upset over an online listing, which falsely claims her restaurant is in foreclosure and for sale at a much lower price than it’s worth. Marshall reminds us not to believe everything you see on the internet.

Marshall and Heidi talk about the snowshoe hare and their defensive strategies for survival that help them avoid predators. Changing colors, outstanding hearing, able to move fast across the snow and being prolific breeders are some of the defensive ways that help them adapt for survival.
