Year in Review - 2012


As 2012 is ushered into the history books, a look back on its major news stories is a reflection on tragedy and triumph.

Stories covered loss of life, jobs and homes. There were changes in the economy, transportation and elected leadership. Mother Nature offered up challenges in winter and summer. And a Brainerd man’s life of service and compassion serves as an inspiration to others.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
