This week on Almanac North, we visit with officials with the Lighthouse Center for Vision Loss about their 100 years of service to the low and no vision community; and we have a video report on the launch of the Navy's newest vessel, the future USS Minneapolis-St. Paul.
The LightHouse Center for Vision Loss is celebrating its Centennial. We talk with Mary Junnila, Executive Director; Laura Lussier, Occupational Therapist; and history major Tucker Nelson about the center's mission and century of history.
The future USS Minneapolis St. Paul was christened over the weekend at a shipyard in Marinette Wisconsin. Navy Deputy Undersecretary and Minnesota native Jodi Greene is the ship sponsor. Watch the ship launch and here from the Navy on the versatile vessel.
