Vox Pop - Jan. 18


Plow the public roads

I would think as happy as the city is to fine people for not shoveling sidewalks that the city would be on top of snow plowing, wouldn’t you? However, after more snow, we go another weekend of traffic on unplowed roads which makes more compacted snow into ice. So now we get another cold snap where salt and sand will not do anything to help with the slippery conditions.

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.
