Waubun Board approves logging contract at school forest
The Waubun-Ogema-White Earth School Board hopefully put the school forest logging issue to rest by accepting a bid at Thursday night's meeting.
Bert Wichern's bid of $7,411 was accepted by the Board. The approved bid comes after the bidding process was delayed at last month's meeting because of concerns by some in the community about the logging.
School forest supporters worried about how extensive the logging would be in such a diverse ecosystem.
