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 females grow to 10 inches in length while the males only grow to 7 inches long.

April opens with Mars and Saturn paired in the predawn sky. On the move eastward, Mars passes a mere 1.3 degrees below Saturn on the 2nd. Just 25 days later, the gap has widened to 13 degrees, and Mars keeps right on going. The red planet also brightens dramatically as Earth closes in on it in the race around the sun. The distance between our worlds shortens from 103 million miles on the 1st to 79 million miles by month's end.
