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.

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
