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.

I would also like to thank the staff and students at Riverside Elementary and Brainerd High School for the superb programs and Perkins for providing us with a great meal on Veterans Day.

The dedication of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial was a beautiful and proud moment for the United States. Now Americans will begin the process of getting to know their newest monument, visiting by day and night, meditating on the words carved in stone. We hope before that process goes much further, though, a meaningful flaw in the monument will be fixed. As we’ve noted before, one King quotation has been paraphrased to the point of total distortion.
