Vox Pop- Oct. 4

To the drivers of Brainerd

A little driving lesson is needed since some of you have forgotten what you learned in driver’s training. Activating your turn signal to let other drivers know you intend to change lanes is only the first step in the process. You also have to be sure there is, in fact, room for your vehicle in the lane you are trying to get into. It’s not the obligation of other drivers on the road, as soon as you activate your turn signal, to slam on their brakes or swerve onto the shoulders to make room for you.

Where is Brett?

Brett Favre, please, where are you? We need you. We love you. Please come back!

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.
