We're checking in with teachers and administrators and the hardworking folks on the frontline of the pandemic of COVID-19 in Minnesota.  John Zemke teaches MN History at Forestview Middle School - he told us about some resources now offered through the MN History Center for students and how they are preparing for next week's move to distant learning. 

All across our region there are hardworking community members working to revitalize downtowns and small towns. Brainerd has had some growth in recent years with a new bakery, restaurants, bars, thrift shops and after tonight's fundraiser at Rumbly Hall maybe a community movement center.
