Arts & Culture
This edition of WTIP's ongoing series, Behind the Work features Gladys Dockan, 83. Dockan is a lifetime resident of Cook County and has been doing hair and giving home permanents for more than half a century. She did hair at the Care Center in Grand Marais for nearly 20 years, helping residents look and feel better with a cut and a perm. In this Behind the Work, Gladys gives a home perm to another lifetime Cook County resident, Mildred Johnson, 89.
There’s a new art exhibit opening at the Johnson Heritage Post starting on April 1. It’s called “Seasonal Voices.” Peggy Thompson is one of the artists with work on exhibit.
Whether it’s polka, salsa, or swing, Ann and Wayne Russ can dance—and teach—it all.

Bob spoke March 4 with Mary Lethert Wingerd, author of "North Country: The Making of Minnesota," the story of Minnesota's true origins that have often been ignored in favor of a far more romantic legend.
