We caught up with Lorie Yourd, Board President of the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji.  She filled us in on what is happening with the renovation of the new art center!  Multiple dedicated gallery spaces, rooms for workshops,  opportunities for community experiences, and a comprehensive retail space will all make up the new art center.   

On the first Friday of each month we connect with people across the listening region to find out what is going on in the arts scenes in their towns.  In this segment, we make our way from Grand Rapids to Ely to Bemidji, Brainerd and Bagley! So much happening.  Get out and enjoy the creative spirit of northern Minnesota!

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.

March for Science events are taking place across the listening area and across the country this Saturday, April 22, Earth Day.  We recently spoke with Jessica Hartshorn who organized the event taking place in Grand Rapids. Jessica talks about the importance of scientists and biologists in our region, how supporting science is a non-partisan issue and why supporting scientists and the work that they do matters to her.
