Denton (Denny) Newman Jr.
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.

Does NASCAR have a new version of Cale Yarborough on its hands in the form of Martin Truex Jr.? Back in the days when he won three straight championships for Junior Johnson, Yarborough led an average of 3,527 laps each year during race seasons that were a mere 30 races long. These days, it's difficult to find drivers who have led more than 1,000 laps in a 36-race season. Jimmie Johnson, for example, led 737 laps during his championship season last year. Kyle Busch led 1,379 during his abbreviated title season in 2015.
A dear friend of mine died this week after about three years battling cancer. He had surgery, chemotherapy and spent extensive amounts of time at a famous cancer hospital in Houston, Texas. Medically he did everything he could possibly do to beat cancer. Physically he gave everything he had to beat cancer. Spiritually and emotionally he gave everything he could possibly give to beat cancer. He wanted to live but it didn't work out. Fifty four is a young age to die.

Jupiter, long a morning planet, comes into its own in the evening sky. On the 7th, Earth glides between the giant planet and the sun, an event called opposition because it places Jupiter opposite the sun. On that day Jupiter rises in the east at sunset and sets in the west around sunrise. In between, it travels the night sky in company with Spica, the brightest star in Virgo. Spica, however, is no match for the beacon that is Jupiter.

Weather phenomenon known as 'Sundogs' over the pines of Northland Arboretum in Brainerd Wednesday morning. I saw them starting to develop on the drive south to Brainerd, right around BIR, and by the time I got to the corner on Hwy 371 by Menard's you could see them beautifully. Then, it was matter of where to go to get the best shot.

SURPRISE, Arizona (Reuters) - Jim Stauffer thought he was doing the right thing. He had cared for his elderly mother, Doris, throughout her harrowing descent into dementia. In 2013, when she passed away at age 74, he decided to donate her brain to science. He hoped the gift might aid the search for a cure to Alzheimer’s disease.
