]The editorial about Martin Luther King Day appeared in the paper on Presidents’ Day and not a word abut Presidents’ Day. Did the Brainerd School District have school on Presidents’ Day? Does this paper know that Presidents’ Day is more than sales or a ski weekend?

This country used to celebrate the birthdays of both President Washington and President Lincoln and decided to change that in 1971 to Presidents’ Day. Presidents’ Day should be a chance to appreciate the presidents’ and moments of the past. I have faith in our local teachers that they will teach about our past presidents’ in their classrooms.
