Duluth, Minn -- WDSE * WRPT is excited to announce the premiere of season two of Making It Up North on January 10, 2019. The show's 12 episodes will run through May on Thursday nights at 8pm.
Secluded on the Moccasin Point peninsula of iconic Lake Vermillion in northern Minnesota, you'll find an exquisite half log sided home on south facing sandy shoreline, hosting every amenity one hopes to find in a premier lakefront home. What is not apparent is how inexpensive this property is to maintain due to the reliable energy efficient systems running quietly in the background.
Supporting the arts has a long established history in Grand Rapids, and a lot of that has to do with The Reif Center and Northern Community Radio KAXE/KBXE. The two organizations have partnered for a monthly concert series bringing high quality Minnesota musicians to the stage in Grand Rapids.
When half of downtown Grand Marais closes for the off-season, the North House Folk School campus continues to bustle with activity. Program Director Jessa Frost says their fall and winter offerings "give people who love the North Shore a reason to visit during the colder months. They can sit by a woodstove with a view of Lake Superior, craft with friends, and learn something new."
About 1.1 billion years ago, after millennia of straining and twisting as it migrated across the globe, the landmass that would become North America finally fractured. An enormous rift opened, a two-thousand-mile-long wound across the desolate plain at the continent's core. No grass or trees softened the barren, broken rock surface--multicellular life had not even evolved yet.

All seasons along the North Shore are breathtaking but one season that really stands out is fall. There's just nothing like the warm sunshine, crisp air, and colored leaves that illuminate the shoreline. Fall is a great season to get outside, be active, and really take in all of those colors that decorate the shore. Bottom line: the North Shore is the definition of the perfect fall foliage.
Pasties have been a mainstay of Iron Range culture for many generations. During the 1800's and early 1900's, the mines were thriving and attracting workers from all around the world. Hibbing and the surrounding area became a confluence of culture; immigrants brought their recipes and traditions, but were also at the mercy of the weather and the seasonality of what was available.
It was football season and practice was well underway. After one of our first practices, I heard the football coach chatting about ordering T-shirts. For some reason, I decided to pipe in... enter me biting off more than I could chew.
Most will recognize Nicole Curtis as the eponymous "Rehab Addict" on DIY Network or have seen her sharing her real estate wisdom on HGTV. But here's a peak into a woman who leads a very real life, an adventure she calls it - as a mother to two, a self-taught home rehabber, contractor, designer, and licensed real estate agent, oh and she just so happens to save old homes... on television.
Devoted husband, father of two, accomplished jazz musician, meditator, mental health educator, advocate, progressive liberal, gardener, joke teller, schizophrenic, Grand Rapids native. Sam Miltich and I sat down to chat about his experience with schizophrenia, treatment, hurdles he faces (and has faced), coping skills, and how he approaches the topic when it is new to people.
Tracy Frizzell was born in the wilderness of northern Minnesota. It was this proximity that instilled in her a love of all things "water." Passing the summers in watercrafts of all shapes and sizes and the winters ice fishing and skating, gave her a memory store of images of water in all its changeable states. When she began her career as an artist she didn't know that these were the types of images that would preoccupy her mind.
The property was deemed "unbuildable" due to the elevation from the water to the building site and the fact that there is no road to the property, access is by water only. The owners, Virg and Pat, were determined to build a family retreat.
The day begins with a subtle push. Just like that, the skiff is now balanced gently upon her substantial shoulders. We are removed from the constraints of clocks, schedules, and daily commitments. For the day, we will trust in the river's internal clock to provide us all that's really necessary.
