Community newspapers


We are all familiar with community newspapers, those newspapers that provide news coverage and community information to many small and medium-sized communities across the nation. They provide a source of connection and identity to the communities that they serve. The key is that they represent a unifying institution within the community. They understand the variations within the community and spend more time finding common ground than polarizing the community.

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.
