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.

What takes so long? When you call the Brainerd dog catcher, it takes days before they come and they’re dangerous animals. I just don’t understand it. Don’t they get paid? They’re big, dangerous animals and nobody shows up. Vox Pop, voice of the people, publishes Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Submissions are limited to 100 words.

MADISON, Wis. – University of Nebraska Omaha right winger Josh Archibald has been named the Red Baron WCHA Rookie of the Week for Nov. 15. Archibald produced back-to-back multiple-point games to help the Mavericks earn three of four points in a conference road series at Bemidji State last weekend.

GRAND RAPIDS — Defense wins championships and it certainly wins non-divisional games. That was the case Tuesday at the Central Lakes College Raiders corralled the Itasca Vikings to secure an 81-52 victory. Thirteen different Raiders scored led by post players Maurice Hernandez’s 18 points and Kevin Kuefler’s 15 points and nine rebounds. “We shot well from the free throw line and shot from the field pretty well,” said Raiders head coach Jim Russell. “The main key was our defense.
Central Lakes College may not have a skill position player like Jontel Clayton of Iowa Central Community College. But the Raiders have a top-shelf group of players who hope to secure the program’s first bowl win in three years when CLC plays Iowa Central in the Graphic Edge Bowl on Sunday at the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls. Through the regular season (9 games), CLC quarterback Carson Wessinger completed 91 of 166 passes (54.8 percent) for 1,043 yards and 14 TDs with 13 interceptions. Ryan Tri is CLC’s top receiver with 19 catches for 236 yards and four scores.
Maybe Greg Medeck and the Central Lakes College Raiders should consider taking time off more often. The Raiders haven’t played since Oct. 22 when they lost to Ridgewater 26-14 in the final game of the regular season, a defeat that knocked them out of the state playoffs.
