Fires of 1918 - Full Documentary
The horror and hardship of the great Minnesota fires of 1918 are hard to imagine 100-years later. Words alone cannot describe the sheer terror and confusion created by flames that killed nearly 500 in northeastern Minnesota, forcing more than 50-thousand people from their homes. Ten communities were destroyed and dozens more were damaged in an inferno that covered an 1,800-square mile area. From Moose Lake to Cloquet to Duluth, every survivor marked time from that point forward as “before the fire” or “after the fire”. The date October 12, 1918 will forever be remembered in this part of the world as a date that didn’t just make history, but erased history. Now, a century later, WDSE WRPT presents a new documentary on the greatest catastrophe ever in northern Minnesota, Fires of 1918.
Pronounce This: Minnesota Names
We asked six West-Coasters to try their best at sounding out some of Minnesota's wackier place names and let's just say they found it...a little challenging.
That being said, pronouncing New Prague in Minnesota might just leave you speechless too. If you're from the North Star State you can't miss this one.

Firewood season is around the corner for us and like so many we've not had the best track record with chainsaw sharpening. Especially in the field! Our small saw was so far gone that I didn't think it could be recovered. I went hunting for a simple, non-powered solution to help simplify the sharpening process and get better results. Discovered this simple, all-in-one, sharpening tool from Stihl that takes the place of a raker file and gauge and the tooth file. It has replaceable files so it's a lifetime tool. It does have a few things that seem to be missing though. Watch to find out how it went!

Great Wonders: Monumental Grandeur of the Mississippi Valley
Stretching over 2,500 miles from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi River has been called the Nile of North America. Like its counterpart in Egypt, the Lower Mississippi Valley is among the richest archaeological regions on the continent. Home to thousands of earthen mounds, it contains both the oldest and the most elaborate monumental architecture in North America. Dr. Kassabaum explores the exceptional variability in the mounds themselves and the prehistoric cultures who constructed them.
