I’m exploring a few concepts for future blog posts, stories and columns. One is the persistent foreclosure rate in places like Itasca County on the western Iron Range. The rates are improving elsewhere but not here. I’m also going to be looking at the fiscal health of Range (and nearby) towns as they face more LGA cuts in the current state political fisticuffs. Finally, I’ll be doing some interviews on the concept of “entrepreneurship” in northern Minnesota and would love if anyone had some ideas. Seriously, give your big, fat MBAs a workout and tell me what that means. I’m actually asking the question. Better yet, common folk, tell me what YOU think the word means.
Use the comments or the e-mail in my about page. I’m going interactive, baby, and there’s no turning back.
