OUR OPINION: EXTRAVAGANZA
In many respects it’s amazing Mark Dayton will be the first governor to attend the Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Fishing Extravaganza when he steps out on the ice Saturday morning. How could astute politicians pass up the chance to press the flesh— or at least the frozen mittens —of up to 10,000 hearty anglers?
We’d like to see an annual appearance on Gull Lake by the governor, similar to the way the state’s chief executive kicks off the fishing season each spring.
