I worked at the Minntac mine in the late 1970s into the 1980s. I got hired right after the big strike in 1977. The movie
was very inspiring to my friends. I just wish it had more about what was happening on the Range and in the mines at the time
-- the strike, the women's committees that were set up in the different union locals (starting with Mine -- USWA Local 1938),
the movement for affirmative action and the Equal Rights Amendment, etc. It would have been a better movie.

: LOVE YOUR SITE..DON'T KNOW HOW I CAME UPON IT....BY
MISTAKE REALLY...I HAD HOPED THAT THE MOVIE NORTH COUNTRY WOULD DO WELL AT THE BOX OFFICE. I AM VERY DISSAPOINTED THAT IT
IS NOT. IHAVE READ THE BOOK AND HAVE SEEN THE MOVIE 3 TIMES. I AM FROM MINNESOTA ALSO...I TRULY HAD HOPED IT WOULD DO WELL.
HOPEFULLY AT LEAST AROUND OSCAR TIME IT WILL BE NOMINATED...I AM X'ING MY FINGERS. WHEN I GO SEE THE MOVIE AGAIN - WILL REMEMBER
TO LOOK FOR YOU.

I had the privilege of attending an advance screening of NORTH COUNTRY with a very interesting Q&A afterward with Charlize
Theron and director Niki Caro.

Was an extra at the courthouse in Albuquerque. Woody H. was hilarious on occasion. Even as an extra, the scene was intense
