Tune in this Thursday, April 17, at 7 pm for the next part in WTIP's Bringing Out the Best of Ourselves series. WTIP host Marcia Hyatt explores the work of Parker J. Palmer, an award winning educator and activist who focuses on issues in education, community, leadership, spirituality and social change. The program will feature Palmer's latest book, "Healing the Heart of Democracy", which explores how to create politics worthy of the human spirit.
Late Thursday, April 10, Crow Creek, west of the Kadunce River was flowing hard and had nowhere to push a large snow pack. In a freak of nature (according to the State Patrol) it pushed a 'glacier' of snow across Highway 61, stopping traffic for about 45 minutes. Check out more pictures of this rare occurrence on WTIP's facebook page.

Over the next several weeks Verizon Wireless will be constructing a replacement tower in close proximity to WTIP’s main broadcast antenna above Grand Marais. To assure the safety of the tower construction workers, WTIP will be intermittently reducing our transmitter power. Coverage of our 90.7 signal will be reduced, and may also affect reception of our outlying transmitters in Grand Portage and the upper Gunflint Trail. See more pictures of the tower construction on facebook!
