Marshall Helmberger is editor and publisher of the Timberjay Newspaper, he joins Heidi each Friday for Border News Roundup.  This week he tells us about the vandalism that happened at the Tower City Hall, the covid spike in Ely, the decision to close MCF-Togo Thistledew the state correctional facility near Togo and he gives us an update on how the bear hunt is going in the area.
