THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO   -  June 17, 2019   (LSN)  This summer Applauze Productions is returning to their roots and staging a dramatic, controversial and moving new production of Spring Awakening based on the nearly 130 year old play by Frank Wedekind.   Spring Awakening was controversial when it premiered over 100 years ago due to its frank depictions of sexuality, mental illness, suicide, abuse, LGBTQ+ characters, and abortion.  Many of the issues arising in politics and the media now ensure the play remains as relevant now as it ever has been.  The musical follows the coming of age tale of a variety of youth in a rural village in Germany before the start of the 20th century, but their inner monologues, thoughts and feelings are expressed in a contemporary rock score.

ST PAUL, MINNESOTA  - June 7, 2019   (LSN)   Conditions that nurture wildfires also can nurture prescribed fires. As of June 3rd, spring weather conditions have allowed crews to make significant progress implementing planned prescribed fire projects across the Superior National Forest in northern Minnesota. A total of more than 3,600 acres on approximately a dozen units have been treated so far with prescribed fire, including dead vegetation that had been piled for burning. This is good news for native plants and wildlife who depend on fire to create conditions for them to thrive, good for general forest health and regeneration, and good in terms of reduced wildfire hazards for people living near or visiting the Forest.

#LSN_Shipping    water levels in the upper Great Lakes

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  -  June 4, 2019  (LSN) Wet conditions continued across the upper Great Lakes basin in May. Lake Superior has exceeded record high water levels for this time of year and water levels of Lake Michigan-Huron are also now approaching record high levels. The Board advises all those that may be affected to prepare for coastal impacts similar or potentially worse than those that have occurred during the last few years, as the high levels coupled with potentially strong winds and waves are likely to continue to result in an increased risk of shoreline erosion and coastal damages across the upper Great Lakes system.
