VOX POP - June 25

Too selfish?

To the Vox Pop writer, sorry you are too selfish to see the hard work this man has put into a not so glamorous job, spending literally half his life there so you can get mail. To the Dispatch: Thanks for giving him a shout out. The people who work hard to make a change in everyone’s day are the ones who deserve it the most.

Trickle down where?

When is the so-called trickle down economic theory going to trickle down to me and potentially the rest of Minnesota? How is not taxing the rich enriching me? I don’t see any jobs being created. I don’t see any increase in donations to various social agencies. This is supposedly been supposed to be happening since Reagan by not taxing these people. Don’t think it’s working.

Peace or piece debate

The peace or piece debate continues. Under Carol Rose’s picture on the front page, you do speak your “peace.” You speak your peace, in other words, you speak until you are at peace with what you have said, so when you have said what you wanted to, you are at peace with the words that were spoken.

Houle was unprofessional

I think the one who should be resigning should be Mr. Houle. Very unprofessional with his bickering comment.

Used cellphones

My family and I just recently changed cellphone companies and I have six cellphones I have no use for. Someone told me that there is a program for battered women to get cell phones. Does anyone know the address or phone number to that particular place or what I can do with them?

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.
