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.

The distance between our worlds shortens from 103 million miles on the 1st to 79 million miles by month's end.

Where have people's hands been? When you shake hands with someone at church, the grocery store or a restaurant what kind of germs are they carrying? I once shook hands with Hillary Clinton and my wife told me to immediately go and wash my hands.

Eric Justin shared these colorful sunset photos he captured of Raylee, Karma, and Zaeda Braswell and Gabe and Zeke Stevens out Saturday evening trying to catch crappies from a lake near Merrifield. Justin says the crappies were not cooperating, but that, "the sunset was well worth the trip out". After seeing these pictures, we would have to agree they were rewarded with a visual treat.
