Getting rid of stuff


Brainerd residents should all feel a lot lighter this week. It’s an illusion, of course, but there’s something about spring cleaning that makes the a person feel as if they just lost a little weight.

City crews conducted a residential curbside clean-up program and neighborhoods throughout the city placed old sofas, broken gutter sections, chairs and some trash that was unrecognizable on the street to be picked up and properly disposed.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
