Striping coming to Gunflint Trail this summer

Sat, 03/28/2015 - 11:19am

County Highway Engineer Dave Betts told commissioners that the striping project for the Gunflint Trail would be done this summer. It will end at Cross River, about 48 miles up the trail. It was supposed to be done last year but Betts said the county couldn’t get the reflective paint it needed.

At the Tuesday, March 24 board meeting, Betts said the paint will cost $350,000 to $400,000 and was in the budget last year. 

Betts also told commissioners that two lights would be installed on the four corners intersection of County Road 8 and County Road 12 (Devil Track Road). He said LED lights will be installed and the light poles should be shorter than the tree line, keeping the light as muted as possible while still being effective for drivers.

Film screening of "To Light a Candle" at First Congregational Church

Sat, 03/28/2015 - 11:16am


To Light A Candle–a film about the Baha'is in Iran defying religious persecution through non-violent resistance and educating their youth—will be shown at the First Congregational Church in Grand Marais at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 29, 2015. 

The Baha'is are a religious minority in Iran. They are systematically imprisoned, tortured and killed by the Iranian government. The Islamic regime bans the Baha'is to study or teach in Iranian universities.

But the Baha'is do teach, and they do study. Since 1987 the Baha'is started the Bahá'í Institute for Higher Education, an underground university with hundreds of students in Iran, and dozens of teachers in Iran and around the world.

Through powerful interviews, exclusive secret footage shot by citizen journalists, rare archival material and dramatic letters written by a Baha'i prisoners currently in jail in Iran, To Light a Candle shows how a small minority has defied the brutal systematic religious persecution through non-violent resistance and educating their youth.

The film by Maziar Bahari premiered at Stanford University in May 2014. To learn more about the film or the cause of the Baha’is, visit the website: www.educationisnotacrime.me.

The film screening is free and open to the public. The church is located at 300 West 2nd Street in Grand Marais.
