Topics: "Terrible Times for Timber Industry" & "Alzheimer's Disease Update"

Description: The recent closing of Duluth's Georgia Pacific plant marks the sixth major wood products plant closing in the region over the past 5 years. The impact of the closings goes far beyond the jobs lost at the plant, but our guests see better days ahead.

And recent studies on Alzheimer's disease point out the importance of early diagnosis, and reveal some tantalizing findings for slowing the onset of the disease.

Guests: Wayne Brandt, Minnesota Forest Industries; Scott Dane, Associated Contract Loggers & Truckers; Dr. Michael Sharland, Essentia Health Duluth Clinic; Wendy Ruhnke, Alzheimer's Association of Minnesota; Dr. Stephen Waring, Essentia Institute of Rural Health
