Here's what community members are saying about the benefits of Boreal Community Media.

David Hahn, 
Hovland Resident:

"I have been using Boreal every day since moving to Hovland from Minneapolis in 2001.  The daily weather predictions, including school closings are helpful especially on winter mornings for a foster grandparent.  The School Board meeting coverage is also very informative.  Boreal has kept Cook County residents in touch with e-mail messages of citizen needs such as lost pets, rides and sale items.  Thanks Boreal for a job well done."

Steve Harsin, Director, Grand Marais Public Library:

"What I especially like about Boreal is the community calendar, where I can go and at a glance see what is going on around Cook County. That makes it really easy to keep up!"

Beth Kennedy, Local Business Owner, Community Volunteer

"The best most important thing about Boreal is that it has connected the community through the years that it has been in existence! You can put meetings and events on Boreal for free! Or weather warnings! Ads in newspapers are not timely and they are expensive! So boreal is especially great for nonprofits!  You can find a lost item by posting or you can get a ride! It is a great communication tool!"

Rose Prissel, Retired, Cook County Visitor

"I like Boreal for the news, pictures, and variety of stories.  It brings back happy memories of when I am up there.  I also like to look at the weather to see how it differs from where I live."

Ann Sullivan, Anishinaabe Academic Tutor, Grand Portage Education Department

"I am so happy with the recent changes at! Although change can be difficult, I have enjoyed not only the new "look" but the ease of posting events and activities for organizations which I belong to.  The way the classified ads are organized makes sense to me, and I can always find the news or grab a quick link to WTIP, which I often use.  Thanks for making this site more user friendly and available to so many who live and play here in Cook County!"

Hartley Newell-Acero, M.A., Community Health Specialist, Sawtooth Mountain Clinic

"Boreal has been indispensable in my efforts to get information from Sawtooth Mountain Clinic out to residents of the Arrowhead region. Their staff posts our articles in an attractive, easy-to-read format that makes it simple for users to find out what they need to know. Boreal helps make connections happen!"
