Local Shovel Ready News Bonanza.
The local newspaper, The Timberjay, is stuffed full of news related to Lake Vermilion area improvement/development projects.
Here are a few links that may be of interest:
First, Marshall Helmberger considers the likelihood of the US Steel Three Bays shoreline development. He uses practical logic and current real estate market conditions to arrive at a reasonable conclusion about the project’s financial viability. US Steel shareholders might consider his rationale.
The Lake Vermilion area towns of Cook, Orr, and Tower will need to consider options for consolidating their existing school facilities. Thoughtful discussion and compromise will bring better educational opportunities for our rural students.
New power transmission lines will bring needed electrical service to the Lake Vermilion area.
And finally, the “world’s most advanced neutrino experiment” begins in the Ash River Area.
Hats off to the Timberjay for providing excellent local news coverage!
