Get your money's worth

Many of the cultural offerings presented at this time of year are made possible by funding from the Legacy Amendment. Minnesota residents decided that the arts are important, as are our land and water legacies. I'd like to encourage the use of the calendar of events on the Five Wings Arts Council website as you look for family-friendly offerings. This is an on-going and frequently updated listing of local music, theatre, and other arts related events in the five-county area. Get your money's worth by attending and supporting the creative happenings in your own back yard. Visit and click on "Events."

Denton (Denny) Newman Jr.
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.
