This week on the Range — Bar fire, senators & Showcase Showdown

Late last week fire destroyed the Risky Business bar in Gilbert. No one was hurt. Gilbert, you may recall, is the historic epicenter of the region’s checkered relationship with alcohol.

Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) visited Chisholm Friday for an event with Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.). The two discussed their Range roots in this interesting Duluth News Tribune story.

A contestant on “The Price is Right” last week lost with a bad guess on a prize package that included a stay at an Iron Range resort on Lake Vermilion. This is one of those “news here, not news elsewhere” stories that makes life on the Range adorable. Excuse me, adorableish.
