Tuesday, July 28, 2020 - The pandemic has generated a desire by some urban folks to move to relocate to rural areas, a trend that could see more people moving into states like North Dakota. In neighboring Minnesota, Otter Tail County even hired someone to promote the idea. Erik Osberg, the county’s Rural Rebound Initiative Coordinator was recently featured in “The Daily Yonder,” an online publication covering rural America. ~~~ Frost Fire Summer Theatre is up and running … online!  The longtime summer theatre program is releasing  four 40-minute virtual musicals throughout July and August. We hear from one of the principal performers, Misti Koop and theatre Manager David Paukert.
