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.

Guy Green is challenging incumbent James Wallin for Brainerd’s mayor. “There is a comfort level in Brainerd city government that has led, over several decades, to an economic lethargy and cultural cattiness which serves no one well,” Green wrote in a prepared statement. “Behind the scenes, a very well paid and increasingly imperious bureaucracy operates outside the bounds of electoral accountability.
By John Kemp LONDON, June 2 (Reuters) - Most of the extra oil produced in the United States in the next two years will be light crudes and condensates that domestic refineries will struggle to process - intensifying pressure for at least a partial relaxation of the country's export ban.

Army Sergeant Bergdahl, held for nearly five years in Afghanistan, was freed in a deal with the Taliban brokered by the Qatari government.

NEW YORK — Even as he had a few lingering thoughts warming up, Phil Hughes insisted there was not any extra incentive facing his former team for the first time since wins can be difficult to come by. The rest of the Minnesota Twins could see the emotions in his face and were motivated to get him a victory on a day when he pitched so well. Hughes pitched eight strong innings and picked up the win when the Twins stormed back with six runs in the top of the ninth inning for a 7-2 victory over the New York Yankees on
