Grant Frashier


Grant Frashier is an adventurous kind of guy. Not only does he produce the Close to Home segment where he takes us with him to historic sites and local events, he has been a lighthouse keeper in the Apostle Islands and has worked a buffalo roundup in the western Dakota badlands. He's also has a keen sense of good barbeque and beer. Grant can be counted on to bring tasty treats to staff meetings as well as provide one of the most unique laughs you've ever heard. One time? At a class reunion, Grant went unnoticed until an hour and half into it when he started laughing.

Hundreds of book lovers converged on the Hibbing Armory last week for the annual AAUW book sale.  There were over 60,000 books in over 40 categories with everything from cookbooks, history, biography, novels, nature and much more.  Close to Home host Grant Frashier was there to talk with other book lovers about the event - as well as doing some shopping of his own.

There is a new temporary 

exhibit at the Minnesota Discovery Center in Chisholm that tells the story of the 1916 Mesabi Iron Range strike.  It was a bitter and bloody struggle of a largely immigrant workforce battling  the worlds first billion dollar company for fair wages and fair working conditions.  Host Grant Frashier talks with Minnesota Discovery Center Curator Allyse Freeman about the strike and the exhibit.
