Highway 63 Revisited

They say the Iron Range is entering a modern age, a time of renaissance and progress and probably even fancier words that will be invented when the new noun factory opens just outside Buhl. I have seen proof that this is true but it has nothing to do with our impending new steel plant or nonferrous minerals. We’ve seen economic booms before, followed by busts and more booms. No, the proof of the modern age may be found on the highway from Hibbing to the locations.
