The Lac Courte Oreilles Harvest Camp is celebrating a feast day Thursday.
The camp formed in the spring of this year in response to a proposed iron mine in the Penokee Hills.
Five people are spending the winter at the camp…which has already seen more than a foot of snow. Spokesman Paul DeMain says the camp has visitors every day, and several dozen people could attend the feast.
A local astronomer says the comet which some thought would be a big deal could be fizzling out. WXPR's Ken Krall yesterday had a chance to talk with Frank Kovac who owns a planetarium in Monico. The majesty of the night sky can be enhanced with a visit from a comet passing by. Some have been spectacular, but this one, called ISON, hasn't lived up to the hype.
Join us for WXPR’s Holiday Fun-Drive and Open House on Thursday, December 5. Come when you can and help us celebrate the season. Meet on-air hosts, volunteers and staff, while you enjoy refreshments and tour our studios. All are welcome!
