Legislature, mining & police

This year I’ll be offering occasional news analysis on WDSE’s Almanac North as part of the station’s “Voices of the Region” segment. My first segment was Jan. 8. If you missed it, here it is:

I reviewed three topics. First, the legislature is in session now. Northeastern Minnesota lawmakers of both parties find themselves in an unusually good position regarding committee chairmanships. However, the gains appear to be temporary in nature. I also explain how Cleveland-Cliffs reordered the Mesabi Range mining scene last year. And I highlight a controversial police shooting of a shoplifting suspect on the Iron Range.

I’ll be doing these updates time to time. It’s crunch time for my book, so I won’t be able to post very often this winter and spring. But I can highlight key stories in this format, so perhaps that will tide over longtime readers.
