Mountain Iron: Now heading over to Mountain Iron where the area YMCA is offering a new pre-diabetes prevention program. These past year of quarantine has had a major impact on activity levels and stress for people. Experts with the national diabetes prevention program say these two things increase risk factors for pre-diabetes. There will be an orientation on March 2nd, with the first official class beginning on March 16th.
Hayward: And finally we'll finish off in Hayward where, area skier John Dettloff is doing through his 39th Birkebiener race virtually this year. Dettloff has completed every Birkie race since 1981. Due to COVID-19 competitors were given the option of doing the race virtually from February 20th to the 28 in order to space out racers.
