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.

Have you got a yard full of leaves and no idea what to do with them? What follows are the options the City of Baxter has offered for solutions for residents on their city website ( http://www.baxtermn.gov/departments/public-works/yard-waste/ ). Residents have several options to consider for leaf disposal, including hauling the leaves to a drop off site or compost site, having a waste service pick up the bagged leaves, engaging a lawn service to gather and dispose of the leaves, composting them on-site, or burning the leaves when dry, if located where burning is allowed.

Ask your Congressman to not penalize Americans who have preexisting medical conditions. The idea floating around now in Congress that insurance companies will be able to charge higher amounts to Americans who are sick is a bad idea. This is an idea from the medical insurance lobbyists who continue to buy Congress. They hand out millions of dollars in money to the campaign coffers of our politicians. The Congress people are supposed to be representing you and your district but they often get bought when they arrive on capital hill.

Americans hope that President Trump and his team can resolve the North Korean tension. Nobody wants anyplace in America to be struck by an atomic or hydrogen bomb. We are not totally clear on what North Korea can do with a missile but it is growing clearer their program has advanced and growing stronger almost day by day. Although few people seem to believe North Korea has a hydrogen bomb.

Sharen Lorch of Crosslake sent us this milestone fishing photo. Jesse Lorch, age 4 of Fort Worth, TX, caught his first fish at grandma and grandpa's place on Goodrich Lake near Crosslake. Sharen says, "The grandchildren come around the 4th of july every year to spend time at grandma and grandpa's lake place in MN. Fishing is the bigest attraction. They go out with Daddy and Gramps every morning and evening." Jesse caught the fish using a Sponge Bob Square Pants fishing pole with a kernel of corn for bait.
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.
