For nearly 20 years, the nonprofit business promoter APEX (Area Partnership for Economic Expansion) has been a significant force in attracting major enterprises to a 10-county region of Northwest
Wisconsin and Northeast Minnesota. Now, a new leader takes the helm with an eye toward enhancing the region’s natural resource-based economy to address climate solutions. APEX President Rachel Johnson discusses the area’s rich potential with “Simply Superior” host Robin Washington.

Plus: Doyle Turner’s latest album is “Sweet, Difficult Sounds” but don’t let the title fool you – he makes it look (or sound) easy. An enrolled member of the White Earth Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, the singer-songwriter draws from many musical influences to create his Americana sound. He joins Washington ahead of his Dec. 2 performance at Wussow’s Concert Cafe in Duluth.
