Intl Falls should get the title. The tie breaker is the smell from the paper mills.

Many people never heard of an ice box, and who cares what town is called Ice Box King or whatever. Is that a tourism draw?

I say whoever the loser is should rename their town Freezer-Burned.

Clearly there are no winners here, literally and figuratively.

Has anyone told these people that instead of arguing about who is the nation's ice box, they should be arguing about who can move out of either of those towns fthe fastest?
