MPR: ‘Grandpa Taconite keeps the Range family together’

I’m still catching up from yesterday’s wonderful TEDx 1,000 Lakes Conference in Grand Rapids. They’ll be posting the videos early next week and I’ll write a detailed post then with links to some of the great ideas I heard, along with my speech (for those who are interested). It was a marvelous event, owing much to its organizers, including members of the Blandin Foundation, area citizens, and particularly Becky LaPlant. I look forward to writing more about it soon.

Today, however, I am happy to share my latest commentary for Minnesota Public Radio, “Grandpa Taconite keeps the Range family together, for now.” This is an expansion on my observance of the 56th birthday of commercial taconite production last week. I think I’m the first person ever to mention taconite in a TEDx talk and a MPR commentary within a 24-hour period.

Please, go to MPR’s site and read the commentary, comment and share. It helps!
