MAY 30

20 years ago (1992)

History, as usual, yields to progress. This week workers will push down the old Brainerd Bottling Works to make way for a new $1.5 million, 11-unit townhouse project. It’ll be a sad day for Paul Cibuzar. His father, Joe Cibuzar, ran the plant making Braino Beverages.

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.
