Dig Deep

Segment on Morning Show

Our commentators - Aaron Brown and Chuck Marohn began the conversation about the State of Rural by telling us about their upbringing, political beginnings and why they choose to live in rural Minnesota. 

Ways to Connect

Aaron Brown and Chuck Marohn continue the conversation on education in this next episode. 

Most school districts in northern Minnesota find themselves in situations that involve their older buildings with failing infrastructure.  But where do the models for the future of schools come from?  How come most school districts have the same answer to their problems - leaving old buildings for larger, consolidated buildings on the edge of towns?  What COULD we do instead?

This month our Dig Deep topic is Education.  Many have suggested this topic, as school funding and consolidation has an effect on many in northern MN. 

Last week on Dig Deep we talked infrastructure.  In our final conversation we talked about the modern version of infrastructure Broadband.  Bernadine Joselyn was in the studios to elaborate on Chuck and Aaron's discussion. 

Aaron Brown has been a strong advocate for rural broadband.  Chuck?  Not quite as much.  Listen to this conversation and let us know what you think!

In our second Dig Deep conversation this week we talk transportation.  Conservative commentator Chuck Marohn posed this:  Are we trying to connect places or are we trying to build places?  He and liberal commentator Aaron Brown dig deep into roads and highways and what the costs are to our communities.
