On tomorrow’s show, we’ll visit with Planning Director Jamin Carlson ahead of the Greater Bemidji Area Joint Planning Board meeting tomorrow evening. That’s on Chatabout tomorrow at about 12:15 p.m.

Our show today was brought to to us by our friends at the Bemidji Chrysler Center, by Higgins Heating Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, and by the Beltrami Electric Cooperative.

Thanks for tuning into the area’s talk show since 1956! Have a terrific Tuesday!
