Communicate differences with civility, build bridges


As an outsider to the Brainerd lakes area, I have experienced a number of reactions to my opinions during the 10 months that I have been with the Dispatch.

Many readers chose to take me to task without engaging in personal attacks. Some chose to make it personal calling for my removal and advocating going back to the way it was before I was hired. A few even supported the positions I chose to take in writing my opinions that appeared in this spot throughout 2012.

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.
