Border News: Drag Queens Raise Funds in Ely for OutFront Minnesota
Border News Roundup with Marshall Helmberger
Friday mornings Timberjay editor and publisher Marshall Helmberger tells us about some of the stories they covered this week. Marshall starts out with an update on the Tower Harbor town home project, which has been in the works for nearly six years, and has died due to high building costs. However, the Tower Harbor Shores has come up with a modified concept that would substitute smaller and more affordable condominiums. More on that project here.
Heidi and Marshall have a fun discussion about the sold out drag shows at the Grand Ely Lodge where the drag queens made their entrance by boat. It was all to raise money for OutFront Minnesota, a statewide organization that seeks to end discrimination against the LGBTQ community.
They end their talk with the Ely school project that is facing more delays due to the COVID pandemic, causing problems of material delays and cost escalations. More on these stories and other Northern Minnesota news at timberjay.com.
