Full House for "Wisconsin's Mining Standoff" Screening

Over 200 people packed the Martin Hanson Theater at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center on July 24th to view a documentary called "Wisconsin’s Mining Standoff." The film was produced by a Milwaukee group, 371 Productions, and recently aired on Al Jazeera America’s Faultlines series.  The audience listened as a panel discussed the issue and responded to questions following the showing. Panelists were: Tracy Hames, Executive Director of the WI Wetlands Association; Pete Russo, Ashland Co. Board Chair; Devon Cupery, producer of the film; Charles Ortman, Ashland Co. Board and Impact Committee member; Mike Wiggins Jr., Bad River Tribal Chairman; and State Senator Bob Jauch. The event was sponsored by the Bad River Watershed Association.
