Open forum: We need your help


Our Golden Gloves boxing team, which has been representing the Brainerd area in amateur boxing since 1995, has had our boxing equipment stolen from 217 Seventh St. and needs the community’s help to find it.

Competition headgears, eight of them, yellow, white and black colors. Bag gloves and sparring gloves, about 12 pair total and handwraps and jump ropes. Who would need all this boxing equipment?
