He believes that with the right choices, Rangers can beat their mining rap and provide a stable economy for people who love northern Minnesota’s outdoors.
If you wish, you may read the entire story on pages 14 and 15 of this PDF archive of the Winter issue of "Wilderness News." I discuss northern Minnesota's future and go into some detail about my recent decision to launch a major new radio show instead of continuing my political involvement.
