  Minnesota leads the nation in support for artists and the arts.  Sheila Smith is the Executive Director of MN Citizens for the Arts.   She stopped by the KBXE studio to talk about a comprehensive study measuring the economic impact of the arts on Minnesota communities.   She also talked about the impact arts experiences have on our communities that goes beyond economics.   Wondering how your community and region of the state measures up?  Check out the findings of the study at Creativemn.org

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an auto-immune disease that causes the immune system to attack the protective myelin sheath covering nerve fibers.  The result is miscommunication between our brains and the rest of our bodies.  Over time, the disease can cause the nerves themselves to deteriorate or become permanently damaged.  Some people experience MS as such that they will wake up blind or unable to walk, others have a type of MS that is more gradual, creating progressive loss of motor control and other issues.

The topic of summer camp conjures up all kinds of memories for anyone who has gone.  Author Eric Dregni started attending summer camps at age 6.  He's never quit.  Dregni has now spent more than a decade as Director of Concordia Language Villages' Italian camp.  He's written several books about the Minnesota experience.
